[REQUEST] Titles & Text - animation no saved

Mykee wrote on 6/22/2022, 2:17 PM

I wanted to use Titles & Text to create a custom animation from the Default version. I saved it as a custom preset, then added it back to the Timeline. I was disappointed to find that the animations were gone, nothing of them remained.
Please fix this error, because I would like to create more custom animated text! Thank you!

I made this:

and after save and close, insert to Timeline again, and animations missing...

It's not an error. Title&Text doesn't have the possibility to save keyframes of custom made animations. Title&Text has only built-in animations:

I don't understand something. It's one thing to have built-in animation, but if I specify the animation points, why doesn't it save them as presets or animations? So there is no point in Preset if it only saves a basic property, no animation.

The Animation list is the same as in the Preset. So my preset that contains animation is not included in the Animation list?

As said before Title&Text doesn't have the possibility to save sets of keyframes. I admit that this is a shortcoming, but it's not an error.

For creating own Text animations that can be saved as presets, use the Protype Titler.

Thank you, I understand. I also use Protype Titler, but I see that it has become legacy in Vegas, which is why I was interested in Titles & Text.

Then let's move the topic to development requests, if there is one :)

Protype Titler is a mighty tool, but not easy to use. Unfortunately it's has been moved to deprecated features list, but still available when needed.
