Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the text to reveal the footage, part of Motion Graphics for Video Editors: Working with Type (2014).
- I've inserted text into the scene, and I've had it…pick up the reflections of the environment around it.…What I'd like to do now is now just pan onto the text,…but do a little bit of an animated reveal.…There's a couple of strategies here.…First off, one of the things you can do is…create a reveal using the footage.…So, I could simply duplicate this layer…and put it on top, above the text.…What we need to do is simply a reveal.…So there it is.…
Let's double click to load it,…and I'll take the Roto Brush tool and just paint the bus,…subtract away what I don't want, there we go.…And just step forward a few frames at a time.…So far, that looks pretty solid.…Let's pick up those little areas that were missing.…
And then it kind of falls apart because of the motion blur,…so we'll need to remove a few of those strokes.…There we go, keep going.…And at that point, it's off the screen.…Looks pretty solid.…And what I'm gonna do is…tell it to smooth that out a little bit.…
We'll reduce the chatter and feather that pretty heavily.…
