To whom it may concern…
I am currently using version 19.06.15 and I am still puzzled about rotating a piece of text.
I am placing a piece of text that is created in the simple text filter. I need to rotate it 90 degrees (right read) and place it to the side of the video in question. Since there is no rotation function in the simple text filter, I have found the “workaround” of creating a transparent video segment, copying the text in question into that track and rotating it with the rotate and scale filter.
The result is I cannot place my text accurately. Depending on the text box size the font size changes, the text “disappears” within the text box, I cannot move the text to the final location, etc.
What I am trying to accomplish is a vertical running title that does not change my font size (or font, that has happen) and is easily placed. I have several videos that I need to title along the side.
I would like to think I am missing something.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated…
Thank You. Take Care
