Basically all i want to do is make my cinematics go through 3d text. i know how to do the 3d text by using bcc extruded text but im not sure how to motion track it so the cinematics go through it. I also know how to motion track but its not very consistent is there tips for that as well. : at 5:57 is what exactly i want. ive been trying to do this for a very long time. Help would be appreciated, Thanks!

Mmmmm! Curious that you would call it Sony Vegas 17 when you didn't mean it - don't you think?

Here's a way to do it:

1) Use the Media Generator to create white text on a transparent background. Place that on a video track above your video.

2) On the text track, go to the hamburger menu and set compositing mode to Multiple (mask).

here is what it shows when i do this. The first step instead of getting text from media generator i had a clip and i applied 'bcc extruded text' and this is what it shows. What exactly does this do, because im not sure how this would help me get 3d text and make the cinematics go through it

I can't tell from your screen capture what you're doing. Do you have the title on a track above the video you want to show through it? Have you set up the track that has the text on it to Multiple (Mask)?

Yes i set the track that has text to multiple (mask) but it made my screen turn black. What exactly does this do?

"Basically all i want to do is make my cinematics go through 3d text."

I've looked at that section of the video twice and it looks to me like all they're doing is adding some blur to the text and shrinking it to make it look like it's zooming away from the viewer. It doesn't interact with the scene at all as far as I can see

@FL4METO

It's hard to know what exactly you want. I see the same thing as Michael H.

Are you trying to get the text to disappear behind the main video?

Are you looking for something like one of these?

@FL4METO - Do you want your VIDEO to appear WITHIN THE TEXT?

FL4METO wrote on 10/18/2020, 3:27 AM

Thank you all of you for your input so far. @john-brown the first video is something i would like, but what i would like is the text to be motion tracked on a floor or something then my cinematics in which i have recorded to go through the text. I have a example of exactly what i want in a video at 5:56 in that video is exactly what im trying to do.

I'm not exactly sure what you mean, but when the cinematics go through the text, i am bewildered in what i'm meant to do for that.

@FL4METO

We don't know what you mean by "cinematics go through the text."

I see a black screen at 5:56 and then the title starts full-screen at 5:57, overlaid on the video. The title decreases in size (zooms out) and moves to a position on the road. The background video also moves. Right after the third image above, there is a quick transition to another scene. I never see "cinematics" (I presume that you mean the video) go through the text; the text is always on top of the background video. The text just decreases in size until the transition to the next scene.

Do you know how to use motion tracking to change the size and position of text?
