hi,
im searching for an efficient way to generate automated text overlays in final cut pro.

maybe there is a chance to do it with FX Script, but before i am going to dive a bit into it, i want to be sure that the first problem that i want to solve is possible with FXS.

sometimes i need to prepare stuff for dailies with final cut and therefore i am adding a text layer on top of the clips and name it according to the clips name that lies underneath it.

is there a way to let fxScript read the clips name and put it into the text property?

if there is another (maybe easier) way to do it without FX Script - even better.

thanks in advance for upcoming answers,
payton
