Making Changes to a LiveType Project Already in Final Cut Pro
Although you can perform normal editing tasks with a LiveType clip, the LiveType title
contents cannot be adjusted directly within Final Cut Pro. LiveType title settings can be
changed only in the LiveType application. Final Cut Pro provides a quick and easy way to
open LiveType clips directly in the LiveType application to make changes to your title.
To open a LiveType clip in LiveType from within Final Cut Pro:
In the Final Cut Pro Browser or in a sequence, Control-click the LiveType clip you want
to adjust, then choose Open in Editor from the shortcut menu.
The LiveType project file is automatically opened in the LiveType application.
In LiveType, make any necessary changes to the LiveType title.
Save the LiveType project file.
Return to Final Cut Pro.
Final Cut Pro automatically relinks any LiveType clips that refer to the LiveType project
you just changed. In Final Cut Pro, you can immediately see the changes to the
LiveType title. Using this method, you do not need to reconnect the LiveType project
file each time you alter it outside Final Cut Pro.
Note: The Creator column in the Final Cut Pro Browser indicates what application is
opened when you choose Open in Editor from a clip’s shortcut menu. For LiveType
clips, the creator is automatically set to LiveType.
