Hey I am wanting to create a title for FCPX, the issue I am having has this.

Some of the tiles need to be two line with left alignment but I will like the text still center in the frame.

Thanks

If you left-align a basic title, you can then drag it to snap to the center of the frame.

Thanks but the problem is when I change the text the position won't center the text automatically to the center point.

Okay, I see what you mean, that won't work.
You might want to try to separate your lines into different layers in Motion and using the Align to behavior to left align them. If you always know that your top line is longer, you can center that line and probably get the effect you want. If you can't be sure which line is longer then this won't work either, though.

hmm, needed a while to understand the task, a centred left aligned text, hu? :silly:

for a first try, use a nil-object:



there's your left-aligned text, and its group is Aligned-to (Behaviour) a rectangle (can be anything) in the centre of the screen.
When the content is changed, …



… the group stays centred …

in the final version, uncheck the nil-object …
