To use this plugin, download the ZIP document, copy the ‘Lower 3rd – Alex4D.fcfcc’ file to
Your Startup HD/Library/Application Support/Final Cut Pro System Support/Plugins
(Your Startup HD/Users/your name/Library/Application Support/Final Cut Express Support/Plugins for Final Cut Express users)
‘Lower 3rd – Alex4D’ will appear in the ‘Text’ generator category.
