    handwriting using animatte

    Just curious, is somebody here who made the handwriting FX using animatte ?

    I would like to share tips and tricks about this way to do handwriting FX titles.

    Hi Sep,

    You can do it with AniMatte if you want to use the handwriting as a wipe.  If you're talking about just writing on the screen, I'd use the Paint Effect.

    1.  Using the Paint Effect and whatever brush size you want, write the word you want to appear on the screen.

    2.  Select the first keyframe, and set the Path parameter to 0 (nothing drawn).

    3.  Select the last keyframe, and set the Path parameter to 100 (the entire shape/word drawn).

    The system will paint on the effect from the origin point.  Ta-daa!

    adios,

    Carl

    Thanks for answer, Carl ! I forgot to say that I would like to do handwriting FX using existing fonts, Brush for example!

    Not sure about using animate, but Boris Red does this rather easily.

    It's been a while since I've done it, but it was using a combinationof fonts from the title tool and the paint effect.There's probably good info in the manual, I think that's where I figured it out.

    Yes I know, I look for the easiest way to do it, it seems you're right about Boris, the special feature for handwring is OK, However, when 2 lines are crossing, the mask will become very imprecise. I mean in capital letters, a A for example.or a F. I will look further into Boris !

    Where did you see something in the manual about handwriting and animatte or paint FX?

     

    Thanks for answer

    Re: handwriting using animatte

    If I recall I just looked in the manual and read-up on paint and figured it out. I think it may have been a tutorial on the old avidpronet board, this was a long time ago as you can tell :)

    Re: handwriting using animatte

    I tracked down the spot Iused it on. I've attached a bin with a small sequence that has the write-on effect using paint so you can see how I did it. Change the .txt to.zip on the attachment to open it.

    -edit - I can't attach the file. PM me your e-mail addy and I'll send it to you.

    Let me know if it works for you. You will need to customize it of course for what you want but it gives you a starting point.

    Yes, that's what it gives!

    However I can't use it directly, because it' comes from a NTSC project, and I work in PAL

    I've created a new NTSC project and could open it.

    Never mind, thanks again Scott !
