Hello Brett, I totally agree with most of your observations. I think at the root level, we agree FCX makes you use a mouse unnecessarily and have missed the places where it's necessary. I guess it wil

Hey Stuart,
it's Joe from the band Cyberchime. You helped me with the text flow tutorial several weeks ago. I was wondering if there is a way I can replace the text on the flow path with a JPEG for a new logo I created in Photoshop. I've spent a lot of time googleing this but can't find any solutions. I basically just want to delete the text and replace it with the new jpeg logo. can this be done? Thanks in advance,
Joe
