Can Someone tell me how I did this? I want to repeat it...
My original title looks like this with 'Video 3' selected:
Somehow I was able to use the full adjustments tab on the title (Video 3).
Note the full Adjustments tab on the right and the changed color of the title in this picture:
Note also that Video 1 line is selected.
If I try to adjust anything now (i.e. Gamma) it changes the VIDEO, NOT the TITLE...
You can add many Effects TO a Title. I am not sure which ones might not work, but most should.
In the Timeline, just drag the desired Effect to that Title. Does that not work?
One can also Select the Title in the Timeline, then from the Effects Panel, one can Apply the highlighted Effect.
If the underlying Video is Selected, then the Effect WILL be applied to it, and not the Title.
Good luck, and hope that helps,
PS - glad that you found out how to adjust the Color in your Title.
Great thanks Bill.
