I've just started using iMovie 10.1.4 and I've been trying to get rid of this annoying drop shadow effect. I created a new title, chose 'centred', typed the text I want, and set it to a light grey colour. But whenever I go into video preview, or watch the final movie, it comes up with this drop shadow shown below. Christmas Design with Drop Shadow Is there any way to remove this? Any help would be appreciated!

First, this is the right place to ask this question.

Second, looking at iMovie, I think that the drop shadow is built into that particular title. Have you tried just using the "Standard" title and setting the font & color to the right one? It seems like that would fix the problem.


The problem can mostly be due to the font and colour you are using. The font would be mostly the problem. Try changing these and see the result!
