I need to know how to do professional titling on Final Cut Pro 6. I do not want just basic text, I want moving text that says "Halloween" and it needs to be something creepy looking against a black sky. Perhaps white text that looks like it has a candle flame light up the letters. Any ideas?

You can't do it in FCP, but FCS comes with an animation program called Motion that you can do it in. Just open up Motion and start a new project and add some text and you can do animation with that.

If you want to make even better text, you need to do it in a dedicated animation program like Adobe AfterEffects.

Have someone cut out the name "Halloween" on the face of a pumpkin. then put a candle in it... maybe even set it on a lazy-susan so that it can rotate slowly...

Cut the name on a card, to use as a gobo... shoot through it using lit pumpkins (or whatever) in the background...

I can think of several ways to create an effect without doing it in post.

Good luck...!!!
