I'm trying to put three layers of simple text titles over a 'Custom' generator dark blue background. But my fade in and face outs to the text are still using the colour black and not the generator background. While fading in the text is over black and when the fade in ends the text is over the proper background until the fade out when it again reverts to a literal fade to black. Is there a way to make this work properly. Thanks!
Thanks Tom. I wasn't using the 'Fade To Colour' , just 'Cmd+T' for the cross dissolve. But, as I wrote the fade is from black and when the fade ends the text (in white) appears above the selected colour background. I've searched everywhere and can't find a solution. Probably my ignorance and maybe I'm missing something obvious.
Tom, just to try and explain in more detail. I'm trying to create a simple opening title sequence of approximately 15" duration. The background throughout is a dark blue. The background fades in, followed by a fade in over the background of the plain white main title text. This title remains and it followed by two further sub-titles which fade in sequentially, also in white, until the end to the text sequence. Then I want everything to fade to black. Maybe that makes things a little clearer. Thanks again!
Thanks. Combine the blue background with initial fade up and titles with transitions into a compound clip. Then cross dissolve the end of the compound to go to black. A screenshot of the timeline area might help if that doesn’t work.
