Requires Highlighter 2 set of effects, FCPX 10.4.6 or higher.


Highlighter – Swing

One of the simpler presets consisting of one Highlighter 2 effect and one Highlighter – Transforms. Customizing the amount or distance of the swing effect is as easy as selecting the Highlighter – Transforms and moving the onscreen control (OSC) to any vertical position on the screen. The further away from the title text, the longer the swing. You can also move the OSC below the text!
