Welcome to a PROTRK™ lesson from Pixel Film Studios We will start by Dragging the PROTRK text effect above your footage and trimming it to the correct size. Fill out your text field , choose a color for the text, and select blend mode that best matches the look and feel of your scene. The first step in this process is Keyframing the position of the text. De-activate the text edit check box, Turn Magnification On, and hide the text before we begin. First, Go to the first frame of your clip. Select the key-frame icon next to the text position parameters. Now drag the On-Sceen Control to a point that will be easily visible through the entire clip. Once in position press the right arrow key on your keyboard. This will advance a single frame. Now drag the on-Screen Control to the same spot as the object moves around. Because this position is different than the previous frame ... It will auto-keyframe in Final Cut Pro X. In this clip, we are going to focus in the top center of the subjects head. You don't have to keyframe every frame. It depends on the amount of movement in your clip. For this example, we keyframed every 5 to 7 frames. Once that process is complete, turn off the magnification and make the text visible again. We will begin to work with the X,Y and Z angles of the Text next. Again, go to the beginning of your clip and select the keyframe icon in the x-Rotation parameter and adjust and keyframe as we did with the position. In this example we only need two keyframes for X-Rotation. One when this subjects head is on the floor and another when she is in a full upright position. Y rotation in this scene will also only need two keyframes. One when the subject is fully upright and another at the end. This gives the illusion the text is turning and leaving the scene. There is no z rotation needed in this scene... But it is completed the same way. Next is Text Scale. As the subject moves towards the screen it needs
