FC 6_Crawl subtitle troubles
by Fiammetta Nazzarri
I prepared subtitles in crawl, using Boris. In Fc are perfects, also in large view, but when I send the file to Compressor, without to do anything, just looking at the file in the preview, I see them already undoubled.

What's wrong? Where's the mistake?
I tryed to do everything, rasterize, don't rasterize, no flicker, I tried to prepare the title in Livetype, but they don't look also well, I tried to use Motion, but when I give the rate, they become all serrated, what can I do?
Anyone has a nice suggestion?
I have to deliver a job and I'm not able to have a nice result.

I have to prepare a MPEG2 for DVD.

Thanks a lot for the help in advance.

Nice day.

Joaquin Kino Gil, noted film effects artist and host team leader of Creative Cow's Maya forum, reviews ''Maya: Secrets of the Pros,'' edited by John Kundert-Gibbs and published by Sybex. While he points out a few weaknesses of the book, he still gives it Five Cows, our top rating, because not only will it give you a great education in the software itself -- but in many pro-level aspects of effects production and workflow strategy as well. Kino says much of this book would be applicable to any serious animator and regardless of tool or version. This is high praise indeed from a guy whose own body of work includes Godzilla, Contact and Starship Troopers and many others.

In this episode of Final Cut Help, Richard Harrington takes a look at keyframing the three way color corrector in FCP. As details change in a movie clip you can have the filter adjust its values over time. This example uses a video of a bird starting in a bright sky and ending in water which is darker, the contrast transition is controlled by keyframing the saturation and color correction.
