Hi, my name is Zach, and today we're going to add subtitles to a video clip in Final Cut Pro. First you have to distinguish what your subject is saying. It sounds like our subject says I just got so excited about it. So now we are going to make a quick text document for that to add subtitles. All you're going to do is go to the text menu, select text and scroll down and do outline text. Next you're going to go to the controls tab and here you can change your font. I like Futura so that's what I'm going to go with and also you can manipulate it any way you want in this menu. I'm going to go with right about 25 size font. After you're done manipulating what you want your text to look like, type in the subtitle. And now you can go back to your video tab and click and drag your clip. Make sure you put it on top of the video layer so it shows up. Next I'm going to size it up to the size of the video clip. Now you think you've done something wrong but you haven't, you're just not finished yet. You're going to go up here to the image in Wireframe, make sure that's selected because you don't want, I just got so excited about it, in the middle of her face. So all you do is click and you can drag it down to in front of her so it's a subtitle and when you play the video clip is there. My name is Zach and I just explained how to put subtitles in Final Cut Pro.
