Can someone explain to me how I can center text in FCP? Let me clarify that I know how to place text in the center as far as lining it up but for some reason when I type the text in the Controls box then switch over to Video to see what it looks like its never centered. I want to be able to move the text up so it utilizes the top part of the screen in the event I need to type something that would take up the bottom part of the screen and so far, it just takes up the bottom and I can't figure out how to move it up some. I am NOT using Lower 3rd either. Another thing happened that was strange. I type up my credits and had them scroll up the screen. I went to my Motions tab and changed the speed from 100% to 50% and when I played it back it seemed like it shot up the screen so quick! I reduced it to 30% and that too seemed fast! I am not sure what to do in either case. I have done both in the past (pushed text up to the top of the screen, and performed slow scrolls for credits, etc.) So I am not sure what I am doing wrong now.
