Cheers to all reading!
I'm trying to create a cursive write-on text effect on a 3 second video clip?
How exactly do I achieve this?. . .I've tried using the write-on or stroke effect, but to no avail?. .. I feel like those effects work when you're doing this to a solid colored BG.
My only guess is, to mask around the video the area where the text will be Written onto?. .. Any suggestions or advice will be much appreciated!
Thank you all for reading!
Un-check the "on original" checkbox in the effect settings, and the background of the effect becomes transparent.
Okay now, do I Un-check "on original" for the Write-on effect? .. and do I leave it on Reveal Original Image or On Transparent?. .Because I'm trying to reveal this cursive text on the video as if it is being written onto the Video?
I'd do it on a separate layer, on transparent. You have more options that way.
I'm not at my AE machine, so I think I messed up the names of the check box selections; after a while, you just get used to any inconsistencies like that.
