I'm trying to mask out something that's already in
the video. So I go into the Title Editor and create a
rounded rectangle with a dark gray fill. I position the
rectangle to cover up what I don't want to be shown. Now
I want to put white text on top of the rectangle. I had
a great deal of trouble trying to get the text to land
on the graphic in the title editor. Then the two were
offset from each other when the title was placed on the
timeline. And the rectangle has the 'foreground' over
the text. Am I wrong in thinking that I can place text
over a graphic?
There are two methods to create text in the title
A. Double click the editor region in the title
editor. This will create a text that is in the "Text
Mode", which does not mix with graphic objects well.
B. Press the "T" button in Graphics Toolbox, single
click the editor region in the Title editor, and then
enter the text.
Please use Method B to place text over a graphic.
The following shows an example using Method B to
create a title with the text "Text Over Graphics" on top
of a colored rectangle graphics.
1. Create a color filled rectangle.
2. Select the "T" button, single click in the title
editor window. and then enter the text "Text Over
3. Resize the text object and the color rectangle.
4. Right mouse click on the color rectangle, and
select "Send to back" from the menu.
5. Bring the text over and put it on top the color
The result is shown below.
