    I am trying to create a basic "lyrics video" similar to the one in the link below. I am able to get the text to super impose over the pic but I can't figure out how to make it so that 3-4 lines of text show. Instead. only one long line of text shows up. Would appreciate if someone could point me in the right direction.

    Your help is appreciated.

    Have you tried Live Type yet? Or Motion even?
    Live Type should be able to do what you want to do.
    You need to create a text board (clip) for every group of text rows you want to show.

    You need to put in a return wherever you want a line break.

    Alternatively, take a look at some more flexible plugins for putting text on a screen in FCP/E. I like Stib's Better Text generators, but they seem to be missing from the web for the moment. Maybe they'll turn up somewhere soon.

    this. FCP txt generator kind of sucks, but it works for basic tasks.
