I'd like to do fancy effects but have to align a small budget with SVMS, which does 95% of all the effects one person needs most of the time.
This looks like an interesting effect, but I'm not clear how much of the underlying image is sharp?
When I use Text, I normally apply drop-shadow and maybe lower the brightness of the underlying video - this makes the TEXT stand out clearly - so, I'm a bit confused by the effect Op is after which appears to be the opposite.
Have I misunderstood? -OR- is the underlying image actually more important?
- e.g. the Text is ancient script and we are seeing the story acted-out...(this might be a visual short-cut to using a VO reading the ancient/foreign text in English, - as a modern translation ).
