So we learnt about Finale Cut Pro and Soundtrack Pro. The last main application we were introduced to was Livetype :)
To get started we had to write something in the text box, which is on the right-hand side of the screen. We could then choose from loads of different effects, font, live-fonts etc.Their is a small screen above the list were you can preview the effects. To apply them to your text just double click. It will then appear on your time line and the main viewer screen, so you can play it back and get a better look of how it looks with your text.
