I want to do a “top ten things we like” film edit.
I am stuck on how to display a large number and then a description e.g
1. Smells good
I have been looking through mtitles from motionvfx and whilst they animate and look good, i think they are distracting.
I kind of think an animated lower third or similar might be more classy and neat but they can look a bit “standard “ - I love the “news item” lower thirds in fcpx but again can’t use that as the colours are not the client corporate look.
This example uses a bug and some text
This one is a lower third
This one is a lower third
I want something cool and not beginner like, but not tooooo YouTuby as the style is more documentary ish - its a car review.
How might you approach it? Can you point me to any thing you have seen?
The other option is to use a “ding” and have a bug style number pop up, but ideally a template would save me some time.

Technically, you have two options:
• using/purchasing a read-made template
• build your own in Motion…
conc. HOW it should look like: your description is very… subjective. Guess, my European/old man's interpretation of 'cool' is quiet different from that of an twenty-ish US skater-boy…
(imho, NONE of the two examples are covering any of your criteria…)
Use a pen & paper and draw your ideas. And/or, follow Ben's excellent advice and collect existing examples. In second step, consider the how-to transfer your imagination into a working Title/Generator << which is the easy part in creating screen-design.
… speaking of 'cars' :
just watched Ken Block's latest insanity - now THAT is a cool screen screen design, even for an old man like me…
Yeh nice budget on those!
I like the glitch black screen title on that which is interesting - I think I can maybe do that.
I have this
And it shows in the demo that the shapes you see moving, has txt on them but I can't see a way to add text to the shaps or titles as these would be quite fun and quirky as overlays. Any ideas on how to do it?
I did a search for how to add text to mform but no joy!
I emailed them today they said you cant put text inside any of the shapes.
They said the text on demo was specially done! Another misleading video from them; they also don't specify that unless you are using a £5k mac and a sep gpu that some of the plug ins hang!
If u put text on the timeline and drop these on top they cover your text or it looks odd. Unless you animate your text, but that defeats the object of a drag and drop solution designed to save you money.
2nd or 3rd plug in I have purchases useless to me.
