    Just a quick one. Any ideas how to change the font of captions in the new update to FCPX?
    I must be doing something wrong… Right…??

    Thanks!

    I don’t have the update installed, but per definition CEA-608 has no font option.

    I just a look the itt specs:

    iTunes Timed Text Profile

    Overview

    This chapter specifies the iTunes Timed Text (iTT) file format for delivering timed text content to the iTunes Store. The iTT file format is a subset of the Timed Text Markup Language, Version 1.0 W3C Candidate Recommendation 23 February 2010 (TTML) (https://www.w3.org/TR/2010/CR-ttaf1-dfxp-20100223/) from the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) (https://w3.org/). All iTT documents are TTML documents that use the restricted subset of TTML.
    An iTT document specifies the font style, font color, text alignment, and layout of the timed text, as well as the text itself and the timing. The iTT format restricts what can be specified to make sure that the content is suitable for use as a subtitle track in iTunes Store content…

    So no font here either.

    Some addition to what I wrote.

    Font can be defined as “Serif” or “Sans-Serif” on version 5.2 of itt.
