I don't get it - you're making them on the computer and shooting on to film stock?

How are you outputting from the computer to film? Shooting off a monitor? Printing onto paper and shooting that? Printing to videotape and then transfer to film?

You could export TIFF's of each frame of your sequence in FCP. Then print these and shoot them on an animation stand or optical printer?

Or if it's an LCD monitor you could shoot frame by frame that way - never experimented with this so it might be insanely difficult to eliminate screen flicker.

In any case, make your titles in FCP or AE at higher than DV resolution. DV is terrible for thin lines in text. Use DVCPro 50, or even HDV (not the best) or a super high end HD format.

Also, playing the QT file on your QT player is never as good as NTSC out through firewire from within FCP.
