Thread: How to make Lower Third(banner)

  1. Default How to make Lower Third(banner)

    Guys I followed this guy's guide step by step how to make a Lower Third with my Sony Vegas 9, but when I added "Transition" text going from right to the left , my text stops after 6 seconds , when I checked the transition length its only 6 seconds.
    How could I make my transition play longer to play the whole text ?
    Thanks

    - What is "Transition" text? IS this a template in VP9c?

    - You have me at a complete loss as to understanding exactly what you mean! - Most likely I have a solution, but until I hear something a clearer, I would be wasting your time, the people who are reading this time and my own, as I would "stumble" through what would be a solution - yeah?

    Ok sorry for the confusion , here its :

    My template is 720 x 480 ntsc

    This guy on YouTube shows how to make a "Lower Third" basically a banner for TV.
    I followed his guide, everything went smooth , but when I added a Transition to the text that goes from right to left , it plays only 6 seconds of my text and stops.
    when I check the transition parameters , it shows only up to 6 seconds of play .
    How could I increase the play time of my transition to play the whole text ?
    I use the PUSH transition to make my text move from right to the left !

    OK, I understood now.

    This chap is using a Transition to control the appearance of the Text. For small 2 or 3 word text Events this has "some" merit. But what do you do if the text string is w - i - d - e - r than the width of the Transition allows? So if you are wanting to play a longer text-string then I'd use the Placement Tab on the within the SONY Text Menu. Here you CAN place whole strings of text - I've had over 300 names being scrolled in a lower third. It would be interesting to see how this would be achieved with a Transition?

    My thoughts with your issue is 2-fold:-

    1] You are trying to adapt a simple control to do something that it was not to do.

    2] Your Text Event is NOT allowing you to "enough" space to scan in time!

    I might also make a caveat to this and that is this: Often we are informed there are many ways to "do" the same thing in Vegas, this is one of those times where this might not be valuable.

    Eh, what is it you want to do now? - Why render ANYTHING out? The SONY Text has a transparent BG anyway?
