Although there are some title templates in FCP X that will allow you to define boundaries for your text, the best templates I know for doing this are included in the TitleExchange plugin from Spherico:
This is a very powerful plugin for exchanging title information between applications and it is a must-have for anyone who works professionally with subtitles in any NLE. But even if you don't need the professional plugin for your work you can download the trial version and you will get 8 free title templates for FCP X. Any one of these will correctly wrap your text into a paragraph.
Here's a piece of text pasted into the FCP X Basic Title text window, and how the text looks on the screen:
Yep, that's ugly. So I replace the Basic Title template with one of the free Spherico templates:
And instantly my text is wrapped into my text box:
You have full control over every aspect of your wrapped text and you can line up your text exactly how you wish.
You don't have to buy the plugin to get the free templates.
As I said there are some title templates right inside FCP X that allow for text wrapping, but I find the ones from Spherico simply the best to use, so I just mentioned these. You can also use this custom Paragraph title template:
I find it hard to believe that FCPX has not made a simple paragraph text template!! But thanks for the download, Ronny! For a new Mac user like me, would you be so kind as the walk me through the steps of how I move this download into the proper folder so I can use it. I cannot find the Motion Templates folder...where is that located and how do I copy the folder over there?Thanks!!!
