Thread: Adding extra lines of separate letters text

    Adding extra lines of separate letters text

    Here's a trick I use alot.
    When working with separate letters scenes, you're limited to how many letters we have in the stand-in object.

    The standin object does have a controller null that moves all the text even when animated.

    If you want to add another line of separate letters text
    go to The file pull down
    load a separate letters scene
    Once loaded, choose load from scene
    go to the scene you previously loaded
    Load all the objects, it may ask if you want to load the lights, say no

    Select as the current object, Text Null 1
    scrub the timebar till you can see all the text on the screen
    now position the text by moving the null
    once in position, hit reset key
    If there is a key besides the key at zero at this point, delete it

    Repeat this for text null 2

    Using this process you can add as many lines of separate letters text as you need.

    If you add alot you may have to start tweaking lights.

    Kewl tip.

    We've been using the arsenal for quick setups now and even go so far as to replace objects in the scenes (ie The spinning screen tornado has become a projection system with a series of videos being projected outwards onto a surrounding cylinder...and this only took a few minutes).

    Thanks for making this available.

    We are looking for new stuff for 3DA.
    Send me a movie example of what you did.
    Maybe we can make a deal.

    Thanks.
    It's actually a reminder for myself.
