Hi folks! I made this short video to experiment with multiple text filters on one clip. Each text filter has one word, set to a preset, positioned using spacing in the text pane (return and space bar). The start position of each word has been incremented by 10 frames in the Keyframes editor by dragging the green line (project is set to 30fps) to achieve a revealing text effect.
nice, that is a good example of using multiple text in a single clip. Shotcut text filter is easy to use. But I’m facing some trouble with text filter while creating scrolling text at the end of the video.
Text filter support limited number of characters (i.e. I’m unable to add as many line of text as I want. I’m not sure how many line or words it can support but that’s limited to do more stuff . )
@jonray, @brian, what about adding letter spacing and line spacing (line height) to the Text filter. I’m not requesting feature, just want to share my experience of Shotcut.
Did I missed any thing? any basic title tool in NLE can take a sentence and display it as characters, words or lines.
I have limited shotcut knowledge but it looks to me like making a W with 4 I’s or if you realy good 2 V’s
Yes, I did text scrolling animation with elusien webvfx which is nice. Shotcut Text filter is good, faster and easier. Easier to make scrolling text effect if it support more than 512 byte.
Yes, CSS is more text related attributes such as text align, letter spacing, line spacing, text shadow etc. And so many cool things can be done with webvfx (html overlay).But I think most common people prefer such thing in the Text filter which seems to be easy to use. If user has to be customize text with html css and import to Shotcut, It’s similar to creating a desire text design with GIMP and export as png and further add to Shotcut. I don’t mean , html overlay is less useful, I know it’s powerful as shown by elusien if we know js html and css code.
Additional CSS attributes will be exposed in the HTML editor soon.
Thank you for your information. Text filter is based on webvfx. I think, it will be added soon.
I not a programmer, but I can do HTML 5 and CSS3 and little JS. For testing purposes, I changed the ui.qml file of dyanmic text. In line no. 299 the maxlength value is 256. I changed the value to 1200 now text box support more text but in project player display doesn’t show all text of the text box. Hope in future advanced control to text filter will be added.
Further, @shotcut , make YouTube video tutorial of webvfx and how to use it in Shotcut. Thank you.
