Quicktips 2011 Day 02: Manifesto title tool can spell check

February 2, 2011 – The recent free FxFactory title update includes a title tool that can spell check

One thing that’s always seemed to be missing out of the built-in Final Cut Pro title tool, as well as the Boris Graffiti plug-in, is spell checking. I noticed the other day that the new Manifesto static title generator can spell check. This Quicktip was supposed to happen later in the week but after some Manifesto discussion on Twitter yesterday I moved it up.

If you’re working in one of the commonly used Final Cut Pro title generators you don’t get any spell checking capabilities.


The default FCP generator doesn’t spell check.


And neither does Boris Graffiti.

But the newly released Manifesto title generator (included as a free update to the Noise Industries FxFactory package) can spell check:


When you load the Manifesto (Static) generator choose the Multiple Lines option, even if you’re only going to have a single line, and click Edit.


This opens a separate edit window which supports spell checking.

Spell check also works with the Manifesto Roll/Crawl generator which requires edit pop-up for text entry (unless you import text from a file).
