Wonderful! :smiley: :+1:I picked up a new tip … use the grid to snap the corner pin corners to. Great stuff!

Ha ha you’re welcome!

Yes! Due to lack of guides, I use the grid as a measuring tool

Thank you Roger. I appreciate your support!

Great!

Nice! I’m using this now! However, when I added the Corner Pin filter the text disappears. Followed your video which was pretty clear. Using version 20.10.31 on Windows 10

Play around the height of the background of the text rich filter

It’s working! Worked when I placed the transparent clip with Text: Rich and Corner Pin filters over a background video on a track below. Earlier I had saved it as an mlt file and was trying unsuccessfully to import that as a clip.

Great! Also gave me an introduction to the corner pin filter, which I have been meaning to investigate for a while. As somebody else has said: “Keep 'em coming!”

Thank you. I appreciate it and glad I could help

Even if I never use the full Star wars scroll, just the idea of using keyframes to scroll instead of the scroll preset was worth watching. Thank you from a rank newbie!
