|TextUp and TextUp Pro Generator for Final Cut Pro|
TextUp is a Final Cut Pro text generator which originally was based upon the Apple "Text" generator. The difference is that paragraphs are not drawn down from the Y-Origin but up from the baseline. This can be very helpful in professional "Subtitling" situations. It also includes "Outline", "Box" or "Drop Shadow" options so you can setup your title in "one step" without many clicks.
There is also a "professional" version TextUp Pro available which does include additional features:
The Auto Wrap function is even more helpful when you use TitleExchange to import subtitles into Final Cut Pro from other applications.
The vertical alignment and text behaviour option allow to use standard subtitling alignment from the bottom, centered text which "spreads" out vertically from the center of the screen, or text aligned vertically to the top of the screen which goes down.
There are also additional options for the background settings. The "box behaviour" can be set to use the standard "subtitling behaviour" which only draws a box fitting the text, "lower third" behaviour which draws the box thru the full horizontal length of the screen. Or it can be set to "slate behaviour", this will fill the full screen with the given box color. You still have control for horizontal and vertical size as well as for offsets of the box.
To setup titles you always should have a broadcast monitor (or even a consumer TV) connected to your system -- or have a lot of experience.
