So I’m pretty new to FCP X and one issue that came up for me almost immediately was how to save a custom title screen that I created in FCP X to use over and over again in future projects. The problem first arose when I was almost done with a project and decided I wanted a new title screen. Without thinking, I created one within a project, exported the project, etc. I then realized that the title screen was living inside my project and if I wanted to use it again I would have to open up the old project, copy the title screen, start a new project and then paste it into the timeline of the new project. I wanted a way to simply save title screens that I create in FCP – but I searched and searched and couldn’t find the answer to my question anywhere.
So I decided a workaround would be in order, although I’m sure I’m making things harder on myself so if you have any suggestions on how to accomplish this task without having to jump through firey hoops, I’m all ears.
In the screencast below, I show you how I saved a custom title screen so that I could access it quickly when making a new DemoGirl screencast.
