Learn how to use professional text backdrops with the ProDrop: Volume 1 Lesson.
STEP 1 - Preparing the Timeline
Let’s begin by locating ProDrop: Volume 1 in the Titles Library. For this example we will be using the Aura 1 preset. Drag the preset to your timeline. Select the preset and go to the Inspector Window.
STEP 2 - Animation Settings
First start with animation settings. Begin by adjusting when the animation starts and ends. Then go on to the Inner Target and Outer Target center controls. Both the Inner Target and Outer Target have their own color spectrum which you can move vertically or horizontally.
STEP 3 - Title Settings
Next is the Title Settings. Start by altering your text either by using the text box or clicking on the text in the viewer window. You can then change the color of the text. After changing the color move on down and adjust the position and rotation. Repeat the same steps for the Subtitle Text. Once you have have both titles to your liking you can then choose from a variety blend modes.
STEP 4 - Background Settings
Now let’s adjust our Background Settings. Begin by adjusting the background hue, Saturation, and value. The Background Value adjusts the intensity of the background. Next is the replicator size which controls the size of the colors being shown. Underneath you can control the blur center horizontal or vertical After positioning the blur you can then adjust the blur amount. Once you have your blur set continue with selecting a Blend Mode for the Replicator and Flare.
STEP 5 - Camera Perspective
Next we will cover the Camera Perspective section. Start by adjusting the camera rotation. You can either user the x and y sliders in the inspector window or use the on screen controls in the viewer window. By clicking and dragging the center puck up or down will adjust the y slider and dragging the puck left or right will adjust the x slider. Once you are done with the camera rotation you can then go on to adjust the Angle of View. The Angle of View will adjust the perspective of your animation. For example moving the slider to the left will give more depth and by moving the slider to right will move you further into your animation. Next is the Face Camera. When checked this will have the text face the camera no matter where you position it on the screen.
Now for some final touches. The Camera lens settings section will allow you to control the overlay blend mode, overlay opacity, color, and scale. Adjusting these controls will add a more authentic look to your preset.
