Fly your titles past the camera – or bring them to a standstill anywhere on the screen. Title Pilot gives you precision control so you can zoom through specific letters.
“Ideal for that movie trailer look or for just trying to add a bit of impact.” – fcp.co
With Title Pilot you can choose from 7 flight paths or set your own course with a Custom Path. Using a Custom Flight Path lets you lock in the camera target with On-Screen-Control. It’s extremely precise so you can easily plot a course through a specific letter. No keyframes necessary.
Title Pilot comes with optional actions called Assemble and Break-Up. These actions add drama by choosing a random path for each letter in your title. Set a mysterious mood… or go extreme! Dial in the intensity of the movement to get the look you want. With the click of a button you can re-randomize the action to make it fresh and unique.
Start with Final Cut Pro’s native text style options like color, outline and glow. Then use Title Pilot to choose from a list of 8 cool looks like “Chiseled and “Electroshock”. Or add some thickness to your fonts with the 3D-Text-Depth controls. When you’re done you can combine your title with other effects from the FCPX library for even more looks.
