Lighting overview

3D titles in Final Cut Pro are designed to simulate the shading and reflectivity of three-dimensional objects in the real world reacting to local lighting conditions and the surrounding environment. The built-in lighting and environment controls greatly simplify the process of creating natural-looking 3D titles.

Also, because reflectivity is a fundamental aspect of what makes three-dimensional objects appear realistic, Final Cut Pro allows you to control what’s reflected in 3D titles. You can choose from a range of preset environments, or you can create your own custom environment.
