Join Nick Harauz for an in-depth discussion in this video Color problems to consider, part of Learning Typography for Video Editors.
- [Instructor] So when it comes to integrating…type into your video projects,…one thing that you wanna keep in mind…is while this definitely looks integrated,…this particular text on this shot,…it's not very legible.…And that's why I chose a very similar color scheme…to what you're seeing here in the clouds.…Which, in some cases, if you're placing text on the screen…you definitely want your viewer to be able to see it.…My first tip for you guys is to make sure that your text…is high in contrast from whatever background…that you're putting it on.…
We've seen earlier in this class, techniques that you can do…to make separation if you can't do it in this case,…such as adding a shape or a drop shadow behind it.…But definitely keep in mind that this text would read…a lot better if we went to the Essential Graphics panel…and under appearance, filled it with a different color…that would differentiate it from the background…such as white and potentially add a very subtle stroke…or something in the background to even add more contrast…
