3D titles overview

In addition to basic two-dimensional text, Final Cut Pro lets you create text that appears to have depth, complete with sides, edges, and backs. 3D text in Final Cut Pro exhibits the same characteristics as real three-dimensional objects, simulating natural lighting and shading effects, and displaying textures.

Viewer with 3D title

You can easily convert back and forth between 2D text and 3D text. When you reenable 3D text after switching to 2D text, the previous 3D settings are restored. For more information, see Convert 2D text to and from 3D. For information about creating basic 2D text, see Add titles to your project.

As you can with 2D text, you can animate your 3D titles in Final Cut Pro. For more information, see Video animation overview.
