To apply Text Animation, you select the text in the titler (one line text only), select the animation and click Apply.
what do you mean by "select them" ? highlight?
In the Titler's Panel, there is a Selection Tool at the top - the little "arrow." Click it on the line of Text to Select it, and you will see a Bounding Box around that Text. As Steve points out, the Text Animations only work on one line of Text.
If you need more than one line of Text, there are two simple ways around this:
- Create a separate Title for each line of Text
- Instead of the Text Animation Presets, use Keyframes on the Fixed Effects>Motion>Position and/or Motion>Scale.
Note: one can add many other Effects to Text in Titles, and most can be Keyframed to change over time.
Thank you very much!
You are most welcome, and happy titling!
Just to add to Bill's answer,
if you want to choose the already created Text Animation presets, after selecting the Text using selection tool and then, choose the text animation preset you want to apply and click on Apply button (above the Text Animation window). Click Done.
