Dylan Higginbotham, owner of Stupid Raisins created a magical Fantastic Beasts FCPX tutorial and free template. See how the power of 3D text in Final Cut Pro X can get a professional result very close to the Hollywood original. 

 

Stupefy! The new Harry Potter movie Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them has been unleashed on the world. Fantastic Beasts is a spinoff that dazzles and builds on Harry Potter's magical world.

Just like previous Potter flicks, this one has amazing special effects and beautiful title work. Watch the trailer below and try not to scream giddily when the Phoenix flies onto screen turning into the coolest letter S you ever did see!

 

After I saw that trailer I knew I had to recreate the titles. At first, I planned to make them in Motion, publishing it as a template to giveaway. Then I thought it would be fantastic to create them in Final Cut Pro X. Take a look at my tutorial video below.

 

I also created step by step instructions if you prefer to read. I've got one last trick up my sleeve. I created a template that you can download and use for free. Have a great day and Expecto Patronum!
