[This is an excerpt from a recent on-line video webinar: “Closed Captions in Apple Final Cut Pro X” which is available as a download in our store, or as part of our Video Training Library.]
New with the 10.4.1 update to Final Cut Pro X is the ability to create closed captions and subtitles directly inside FCP X. This week’s webinar shows you how this new feature works.
Join host, Larry Jordan, as he illustrates how to:
Pick the right caption file for your distribution system
Import captions from a file
Create captions manually
Position and format captions
Determine if a caption is invalid
Work with captions for multiple languages
Embed captions into a movie file
Export captions for social media
Captions are increasingly necessary, even for small projects; and online captioning is often laughably bad. Watch this session and learn how to handle captions yourself.
This is an intermediate-level session. Some knowledge of FCP X operations will be helpful in understanding this process. This training is delivered as a single QuickTime movie.
To help you quickly find the information you need, we include chapter markers in the QuickTime download to simplify navigation. Click here to learn how to display them in your download.
