FCPXTRA Subtitle


So tell me, what’s the big deal here?

 

Making subtitles within Final Cut Pro X has always been clumsy and difficult. There are enough subtitle-applications on the market that help you create subtitles outside the context of Final Cut Pro X, but to export and import separate SRT or STL (or whatever file-format) with XML’s into Final Cut Pro has never satisfied me. That’s why I’ve created FCPXTRA Subtitles, an OSX-native FCPX-service that can be triggered by a shortcut and will create subtitles within Final Cut Pro X itself. After I’ve been using them for my own purposes I met different people who’d love to use them as well. So try it out for 5 days to see if they work for you. I hope you enjoy FCPXTRA Subtitle…

Hello.
I like making films, but I don’t like to waste my time.
FCPX is fast and efficient, but some functionalities, or better the lack of them, make FCPX needlessly clumsy.
That’s why I created my FCPXTRA-plugins. After I’ve been using them for my own purposes I met different people who’d love to use them as well.
So try them out for 5 days to see if they work for you. I hope you enjoy them…
