Lesson 15. Adding Titles and Graphics > Adding a Title over a Background

Adding a Title over a Background

In this exercise, you will utilize the alpha channel of a text item by placing a title over a background clip.

1.
Set an In point at the start of the team truck clip, and set an Out point at the end of the BS drinking water clip.

2.
In the Viewer, click the Video tab. From the Generator pop-up menu, choose Text > Text.

3.
Make sure the v1 source is patched to the V2 track. Edit this Text clip as an Overwrite edit, and move the playhead over the new text clip.

With the playhead parked over any one of the three clips, you see SAMPLE TEXT appear in the Canvas.

4.
In the Timeline, double-click the new text clip to open it in the Viewer.

5.
Click the Controls tab, and in the Text box, type Yamaha of Troy.

6.
In the Controls tab, make the following changes to this text:

  • Font: Impact

  • Size: 63

  • Style: Bold

  • Alignment: Center

  • To make the color of this text the same as that of the first text clip, click the Select Color tool (eyedropper), and move the Timeline playhead over the first text edit, Presents. In the Canvas, click the yellow text with the Select Color tool.
