I am trying to put scrolling words on a song video.
I have pasted the words (many lines) into a Text:rich filter where I made the displayed size of the text so song-lines scroll to the end.
(see green in picture below)
I added a frame filter to only display 3 lines at the bottom.
All this adjustment is because I found no other way to scroll a long text file of song-lines in the lower part of the screen .
The issue I am having is that I clicked key-frames on the text filter to accelerate or slow down the scrolling with key-frame markers (red markup below):
AS SOON as I change focus in the filter window to the other filter (or ANY other click which unfocuses the Text:rich filter) the markers disappear and the key-frame button reverts back from blue to black: all the key-frame info is lost.
Is this a bug ? What can I do to get the job done?
C’est normal, les keyframes du filtre d’un clip ne sont affichées que lorsque le clip est sélectionné ainsi que le filtre concerné. Si vous sélectionnez à nouveau le clip dans la timeline et le filtre dans la fenêtre filtre, les keyframes devraient ré-apparaitre.
This is normal, the keyframes for a clip’s filter are only displayed when the clip is selected and the filter is selected.
If you select the clip again in the timeline and the filter in the filter window, the keyframes should reappear.
As I said the key-frame information is completely lost. I even tried saving the project while the filter is selected, but when I retrieve it again, there is NO keyframe information at all, just as if I had deleted it by pressing the keyframe initial button and cancelled key-frames.
I have upgraded to version 21.03.21. And I have opened a new project. Here are the steps I need to see the problem:
I open a Open-other transparent-color object which I place in the Reader list (sorry for approximate names, I work with the french translation).
I place this object into a brand new video track
I insert a new video track and place a 2nd transparent object (from the same object in the reader list) in it too.
4 I make both tracks (clips) last approx 3 minutes
5 I insert a filter ‘Rich: text’ in the top one. And I make in scroll towards the top
6 I take the text from this page (one has to click ‘more’ to get the entire song) and paste it into Notepad to clear it from any formatting, then copy/paste into the SC rich-text window.
7 I format the font and color to 48 and White
8 I click the keyframe icon to add the keyframe line in the ‘Position/Dimension’ in the keyframe pane.
9 I go to the beginning and end of the filter (Alt-left and Alt-right) to adjust the background size to that of the text size
10 I click the clock at different places to get keyframe markers which I slide to change the text scrolling speed. THis works fine as long as I don’t unfocus the Text filter
11 I unselect the track in the timeline and select it again and …
… the keyframe info of the rich:text is entirely gone (no markers anymore and no ‘Position/DImension’ line and button is back to normal black)
Addition: I listed many steps above, but I find all I need is to create an empty text:rich, make it scroll from the bottom, and any keyframe info doesn’t seem to stick past an un-focus of the text:rich filter.
NAMNA above sent me some scrolling text demo, but I was unable to replicate the same…
@Namna I experienced some more with your demo: I can make a new track and copy your filters into it, and even change your text for mine, but if I click scroll from bottom, it resets the keyframe to none, and I cannot get it to stick back.
