Thread: how do you do that writing effect

    Default how do you do that writing effect

    How do you do that effect in vegas when the writing writes it self across the screen from one side to the other rather then just coming on all at once. do you know what i mean? not sure how to explain this effect very well

    thanks

    I cant think of an easy peasy way. You could either do a very fiddly mask that changes in a realistic way to make it look like it was being written, or you coulg get a coloured pen (not the ink) and wear the same coloured glove, write your text (not covering the writing) and then key out the pen and glove. Fiddly either way really.

    ...You mean something like this?

    If so it's very easy...Just insert a Text Media, then goto Generated Media under the "insert" tab and use key frames at the bottom. Insert a keyframe, and write the first letter, put another keyframe half a second later, and write the second letter and so on...

    It'll take a while if you're doing alot, I guess, but it's hardly rocket science...lol.

    The titorial was actually adapted from a Premiere tutorial: http://www.wrigleyvideo.com/videotut...andwriting.htm

    Unfortunately I don't have vegas, so I can't tell you how it is done in that software. With any luck, someone will download it and tell you how to do the same in vegas.
