When I get out of Fusion doing a title the title take on color from a power window I have from the color page??? Would you not want it "on top" of all the color you did? I'd guess i would need to make it into a effect I can then add to another layer in edit mode so that it is on top? How?

Also the title when I make it large looks soft on my main monitor

These are great!!!

Here is what I would love to see:

1) End Credit rolls

2) cloning/tracking to fix/remove issues.

Ok, so i'm following this to the letter.  However when, in lesson 4 (approx: 7.17) you drag a clip from the Media Pool and it immediately shows up in your viewer window (screen 2).


Ok, so this doesn't happen for me.  I've tried many combinations of this but nothing. The node that the clip represents is blank.  I've made sure that it is being displayed in the correct viewer, etc...but still nothing.  I've been over the lesson a number of times, and i'm sure that i haven't misheard, or mis-seen anything.  

Anyway, how can this clip possibly show up if it doesn't appear on the edit timeline?

Am i missing something? Can someone please advise?


Thanks in advance.
