            This is my problem.

            I'm trying to apply  animation to the text , but the text is multiple lines .

            Second, I'm trying to copy text  and paste it  into  text window  and the text is  four lines of text.

              And then I need that text  to appear  one word at the time until  reached theThe Last word on the fourth line .

            Does Not matter  how these words  will appear  from the bottom  or from the top or fly in  and so forth, I  just want to customize  text  as needed.

            I have elements 13

              thank you in advance for your help

              In the Titler it is easy enough to apply text animation to more than one line of text so that each has an animation effect applied to and the lines are contained within one text file. But, what you are asking is to have words sequentially appear going from word to word, starting with the first word

              in the first line to the last word in the last line. I have not figured out a way to do that using the Titler Animation section. I can share with you

              how to do that for first character in the first line sequentially to the last character in the last line.

               

              But, for word to word, we might consider creating the title and, with the Titler closed, use one of the fx Effects/Keying/Garbage Mattes to achieve the

              effect - keyframing the property of the garbage matte.

               

              Which is your preference? The character to character is probably easier.

                  To get what you want, we need a slight twist to the basic principle. More later when I know

                    Hi ROMANA

                    thank you very much for trying to help me,  and what I understand, so far that I have to create  every single line as a separate object and manipulate  each line individually, which is very time-consuming.What I'm trying to do is this,, I will like you to put audio file on timeline , which is basically song and the lyric of that song  has to appear on the screen  as the song is playing.  So the lyric is divided into four lines  of text and each line contains  5 to 6 words,  and after first four lines appear on the screen the second four lines
                    start appearing and so forth.So  I will be satisfied if I can make it so the word by word appears on the screen or one line at the time.

                    Thank you very much

                      You could use the crop effect on the title and keyframe it.

                        Part 1.

                         

                        The sequential appearance of 4 Lines of text using fx Effect/Keying/Four-Point Garbage Matte.

                        Does not require individual line of text. Just type text one line after another.

                         

                        Song4ptgarbage matte.JPG

                        After creating the title in the Titler, close the Titler.

                        Then drag the Four-Point Garbage Matte into the title on Video Track 1. See fx Effects/Keying/Four-Point Garbage Matte.

                        (Garbage Matte Principle: everything within the points of the garbage matte is seen, anything outside the points is not.

                         

                        For editing the Four-Point Garbage Matte, go to Applied Effects Tab/Applied Effects Palette/Four-Point Garbage Matte Panel 

                        expanded and set workspace as suggested in the following screenshot.

                         

                        FourPointExplained.JPG

                        Note: Toggle Animation Button initiates the keyframing of the garbage matte process.

                        Show Hide Keyframes Control lets us open to area seen where you can watch the keyframes being placed.

                        Typical sequence after Toggle Animation...move Timeline Indicator to right, move the points down to reveal the first line;

                        move the Timeline Indicator to the right some more, move the points down to reveal the second line; and so on.

                         

                        If you want to use Crop instead of Four-Point Garbage Matte, see fx Effects/Transform/Crop and drag the Crop effect

                        into the title on the Timeline. Then in Applied Effects Tab/Applied Effects Palette/Crop Panel expanded....

                         

                        Crop.JPG

                        In this case, you will be keyframing down "Bottom" to reveal one line at a time. In the Crop way screenshot,

                        the four lines of text are hidden since the "Bottom" is set to crop out the lines at the onset.

                         

                        Please review and consider. If this line by line looks doable, we can still explore the word by word or character by character.

                        There is a way to do the above using four individual lines of text and the Animation in the Titler, but we will do that next if you want

                        before we get to the word by word or character by character. I think that the line by line should serve your purposes.

                         

                        Thanks for exploring the above.

                            I really appreciate your willingness to help me. And I deeply apologize for not responding sooner.

                            Last night  I try implement direction  as you describe it,  but looks like I can't not  understand  exactly what needs to be done.

                            Even though I really wanted learned that, I don't want you to spend  time on me  trying to make me understand.

                            if you know some other way  to teach me, please let me know.

                            Once again thank you very much  for your help

                              Thanks for the reply. Let us try the Crop way with keyframing described in another way.....

                               

                              1. Are you OK with creating the 4 lines of text  in the opened Titler and closing the Titler to have the created title on the Timeline?

                              (This is 4 lines created by typing continuously the 4 lines rather than creating 4 separate lines of text.)

                               

                              2. After the Titler is closed, you want to apply the Crop effect to the Timeline title (open fx Effects Tab, go to Transform/Crop, and drag the thumbnail for

                              Crop into the Timeline title).

                               

                              3. Now we are going to edit the Crop effect that was just applied. For that, click on the title on the Timeline to selected/highlighted, and go to

                              Applied Effects Tab/Applied Effects Palette/Crop Panel expanded.

                               

                              At this point, you should see

                              danieo1.JPG

                               

                              Your next objective is to move the Bottom slider in the Crop Panel expanded to establish what you see on screen across

                              the duration of the title. We need to use the technique of keyframing to do that. If we did not and just set the Crop's

                              Bottom slider to hide the last three lines, we would just see the first line across the video duration and never see

                              the last three line. It would look like

                              danielo2.JPG

                              Are you OK so far with what needs to be done. If so, I will go through keyframing of the Crop effect.

                               

                              Keyframing

                               

                              Refer back to the first screenshot

                               

                              1. Use the -+ slider above the Timeline to expand the Timeline to get a better look at its content (the title).

                              Right click the title to which the Crop effect has been applied. Select Show Clip Keyframes/Crop and Bottom.

                              Now every time you create a keyframe (to reveal another line) where you have placed the Timeline Indicator, you will see a white dot on the orange band that

                              runs through the title clip

                               

                              2. In the Crop Panel expanded, focus on the "Bottom" slider. Move that "Bottom" slider to the right, hiding the last 3 lines of text.

                              Have the Timeline Indicator at the start of the Timeline.

                              Click on the Toggle Animation icon in the Crop Panel expanded area as point out in post 8 screenshot.

                               

                              3. Move the Timeline Indicator to the right to an envisioned 25% mark along the clip, move the "Bottom" slider to the left to reveal

                              the second line of text. You will see a white dot (keyframe) automatically placed on the Timeline orange band at that 25% point.

                               

                              4. Move the Timeline Indicator to the right to an envisioned 50% mark along the clip, move the "Bottom" slider to the left to reveal

                              the third line of text. You will see a white dot (keyframe) automatically placed at that Timeline 50% point.

                               

                              5. Move the Timeline Indicator to the right to an envisioned 75% mark along the clip, move the "Bottom" slide to the left to reveal

                              the fourth line of text. You will see a white dot (keyframe) automatically placed at that Timeline 75% point.

                               

                              After you press the Render button above the Timeline, what does that look like when played back in the Edit area monitor?

                               

                              These keyframes are adjustable.

                               

                              Please review and consider and then let me know if you are OK with this version. If not, please let me know where I need

                              to clarify or re-write.

                                  I'm sorry but one more thing, may sound stupid do you but I'm going to ask anyway.

                                  When you say open the titler and close the titler that little bit confusing,  because titler does not open  in any separate  window,

                                  unless you're referring  when double-click  on  titler on a timeline,  then opens ability  to modify titles  and then you click back  on  timeline,

                                  that ability for modification  disappear. So I'm not sure is that  means  open  and  close .

                                  thank you very much

                                    calling the Titler workspace.

                                      Hi,

                                      I did explore  crop FX and that part is working,  but I am not sure  is that really what I want.

                                      What I'm looking for is more like  fadin and fadeout effects,  or

                                      highlighting the words,something like  what they have  in karaoke  files.

                                      But anyway  I will do little bit more research  and if I cannot find it  I'm going to give up.

                                      Thank you very much for your help patient.

                                      Best regards

                                        Daniel

                                        Never give up. There is a way.

                                         

                                        Here is an example of fade in by character, using 4 line of text, and the fade ins from first character of Line 1 to last character of Line 4.

                                        Is this what you are looking for? (I sort of added some enhancement for background.)

                                        YouTube

                                         

                                        If that is not exactly the look you want, could you post a screenshot example for the look that you want.

                                         

                                        Thanks.

                                        endorse in anyway keep popping up after the playback of my demo video for you. After you view my YouTube video for you, I may delete it

                                        and try using Vimeo for future examples.

                                          This example it's very close what I'm looking for. And I will be very happy if I can make something like that.

                                          If you know for some tutorial  on YouTube that will be wonderful .this way off displaying the words  on the screen  will serve the purpose perfectly.

                                          Thank you very much my friend

                                            Thanks for the reply.

                                             

                                            How many titles (each representing 4 lines of text) will be in your project?

                                             

                                            If you liked the title look of what I presented in the video posted as an example on YouTube, I will write up a how to with screenshots, step by step, in

                                            my blog. It takes more work than simply applying a Titler Animation to the text in the Titler, but it is easy step by step. Each set of 4 will have a duration of 12 seconds, but

                                            that can be adjusted.

                                             

                                            What do you think? Want to give it a try? If you do, I should have it published in the blog within the next 24 hours.

                                              That will be absolutely awesome,but I don't want bother you with that because I know how much work is that.Typically five or six set of for lines is in each project.

                                              But like I said this is a lot of work,  and I cannot ask you  to do that because these  are  above and beyond help .

                                                          Greetings,

                                                          I did everything as you describe and that part is working  perfectly, but,  always but every line  after  finish playing disappeared from the screen. In your  example each line stays on the screen.  So I'm not sure how to go about that.  Also,  each song  has 5 or 6  paragraphs and each paragraph  is 4 lines.  So if I have to do one line  at a time and I had 20 or 30 lines  how much time will be to finish  just one song?  That's my concern. Anyway, that is something  that I'm going to think about later on.

                                                           

                                                          Thank you very much

                                                            Please refer back to the how to...

                                                            (a) Do you now have on the Timeline the first line of text which plays back one character at a Time?

                                                            (b) When you then go to Project Assets, do you find a thumbnail for that title file named Title 01?

                                                            as the next line of text starts animating.....please refer back to the blog how to....

                                                            Line 1 with animation Apply

                                                             

                                                            5 to 10 seconds

                                                            Line 1 with animation Remove (do not remove Line 1, just the animation applied to it)

                                                            Add Line 2 with animation Apply

                                                            Now you should have the look of Line 2 fading in continuous from the last character of Line 1.

                                                             

                                                            10 to 15 seconds

                                                            Line 1 which has no animation because you removed it in a prior step

                                                            Line 2 with animation Remove (do not remove Line 2, just the animation applied to it)

                                                            Add Line 3 with animation Apply

                                                            Now you should have the look of Line 3 fading in continuous from the last character of Line 2.

                                                             

                                                            15 seconds to 20 seconds

                                                            Line 1 which has no animation because you removed just the animation in a prior step

                                                            Line 2 which has no animation because you removed just the animation in a prior step

                                                            Line 3 with animation Remove (do not remove Line 3, just the animation applied to it)

                                                            Add Line 4 with animation Apply

                                                            Now you should have the look of Line 4 fading in continuously from the last character of Line 3.

                                                             

                                                            If you are losing previous line as you progress from Line 1 to 4, I am wondering if you are removing each line

                                                            instead of removing just the animation where indicated.

                                                             

                                                            After we are sure that the above is the right technique for what you want to create and we know it is working for you, then the

                                                            calculations.

                                                            a. What is the duration of the music...is it music or music and lyrics?

                                                            b, If we say that a song has 6 paragraphs and each paragraphs has 4 lines, then we are looking at creating 6 titles files each with 4 lines.

                                                            Right now I am not seeing a problem in adjusting the duration of the title files to accommodate the music. I am wondering about sync'ing

                                                            the titles with the music arrangement.
