In the Adobe workflow you can change text to all caps. This is very useful when you copy text delivered by clients. That way you reduce making mistakes as you do not need to retype. I could not find all caps parameters in Fusion. IS there any solution in Fusion?

Unfortunately, that's not possible inside of Fusion.

Awesome lessons!
I have a question :)

How to fix the shadows? I'm talking about 21:02 timing in the lesson about masks.
I understand, why is it happening, but is there any quick way to fix this?
I mean, I want the shadows not to disappear when I make them soft.

Nice work! I'm confused about something. For me I would want to color in Resolve. Then if I need to use Fusion go into it seeing my color correction. I've learned about exporting a LUT from the color page and then loading it into the monitor in Fusion. But I can't seem to figure out how to get this output to go to my external monitor showing the color. When I select the MediaOut and press (3) it goes to my monitor but pre LUT/color. 

There must be a way around this? A great update for BMD would be to have your color correction "move" to the clip in Fusion.
