Comments on Free Pixel

I am just collecting the various comments (I like) on the Free Pixel film in one place;

rob_white “I’m prepared to be convinced, I just can’t envisage “free pixels”, they will always be bound even if the boundary is flexible”

Roghaydonmitch “Those of us with gifts and power to link imagination and technology could devote ourselves to making it freely available”

followdontstalk “Check out — Free Pixels… wow! this is my media teacher loool but well worth a watch! :)”

Net (on facebook) “My favourite bit.. “like so much silver dust”. Pause … Cheeky grin. Great!”

C Gyford (on facebook) “Free the pixels imprisoned in yet another horrendous miscarriage of justice!”

R Marr (on facebook) “Nice 🙂 As Frank Herbert shows in his Dune books, when the form of technology surpasses its functional requirements strange things will happen!”

J-J Guest “Amazing – love the music and well done for getting that 281 frame effects shot done on time!”

D McAdam “I really loved the poetic quality you guys put into the script and the effects were very sweet, bringing the “freedom” to life.”

Adding a Title Card in Final Cut Pro

How to edit text in Final Cut Pro

Just working through how I can add Title Cards with quotes in Final Cut Pro. In other editing tools I would have made a card in some paint program and then dragged it into the project. In the end I followed Guide for Dummies. This was after  William Stopha showed me how to do this and then immediately forgot what he had said.

The hard part was managing the location where your text appears on-screen. This can be done by clicking the Origins cross icon in the Controls tab. Your mouse pointer becomes a red cross symbol, and you can then click anywhere in the Viewer window to reposition your text at that spot. However finding the right spot is a pain. The easiest way is to do it by numbers and count from the left corner.
