Final Cut Pro X: Ticker

Adding a title is a great way to provide information to your viewers. Turn on almost any news or sports show and you’ll see text crawling or scrolling across the bottom with updates. Abbey emailed to ask how to create this type of text using Final Cut Pro 10. There are a few different ways to create this kind of title but here is one way.

1. Create a Project in Final Cut Pro and add media for the text to scroll across.

2. Locate the Ticker title by going to the Titles and Generators Sidebar. Ticker is part of the Build In/Out collection.

3. Drag the Ticker title to your Project to add the title, represented by the purple line, on top of the video.

4. Click the title (purple line) to customize it using the Inspector (Command-4).
