movie: Final Cut Pro tricks

OK, now that I’m finished with Darktable, onto making videos with Final Cut Pro so here is version 3 tips and tricks on yet another incredibly deep product, Final Cut Pro

  1. Changing the colors of titles. Why is this so hard to figure out? You would expect there would just be a color parameter in the title area but no! When you add a title, you click and will see the upper right pane change and there is a simple color change in the T icon and in the second icon if you scroll down to face, click on Show and the colors are there.
