Working with Keyframes

Titler Pro allows keyframing many titling parameters. Using keyframes, you can specify a change to happen over time. For example, If you set a keyframe at the beginning of the paragraph with a title at the far left of the screen and then set a second keyframe at the end of the paragraph with a title at the far right of the screen, as the title is played, the title will slowly move from the far left to the far right between those two keyframes.

Keyframe Details

To use keyframes, first click on the “Turn on keyframing” checkbox. This area will display all current keyframes and allow you to click on any of the keyframes to jump to that point on the timeline. You and move the cursor to a new location on the timeline and click on the “+” button to add a new keyframe. You can also click on any listed keyframe and click on the “-“ button to remove the keyframe.
If you have large changes in position or rotation from keyframe to keyframe, sometimes the changes can look very abrupt. To provide smoother motion to your paragraph, enable the Smooth Interpolation option.

Motion Keyframes

 

To keyframe the position, rotation, and scale of a title, first select the title and make sure no text is selected and click on “Turn on Keyframing”. By default, a keyframe is automatically added at the beginning of that paragraph setting the initial position.
Move the cursor to a new location in the paragraph and either click on “+” as mentioned above or simply change any settings. When you change the settings, a new keyframe will be automatically created at the cursor location if no keyframes were at that location.
It's also possible to keyframe the movement of Shapes inside Titler; just follow the same steps as for Paragraphs.

Effect Keyframes

 

Effects added to a paragraph can also be keyframed, once again, simply turn on the keyframing and the same options are available to create and remove keyframes. Simply adjust the settings as desired to change the effect over time.

Transition Keyframes

 

Transitions added to a paragraph can be keyframed as well. Turn on the keyframing and the same options are available to create and remove keyframes. Simply adjust the settings as desired to change the transition over time.

Lighting Keyframes
 

Finally, Lights in the project can be keyframed. Turn on the keyframing and the same options are available to create and remove keyframes. Simply adjust the settings as desired to change the lights over time.

Adjusting Keyframes
 

Keyframes on the timeline are indicated by the circles shown above. If you click on the “Keyframe” indicate on the settings the cursor will jump to the corresponding circle. Similarly, when you click on one of the keyframe circles, the corresponding entry on the settings screen will be selected.
If a keyframe is in the wrong position, simply click on the keyframe and drag it to the correct position.
 

If you right-click on a keyframe, you can also copy, paste, or remove a keyframe. When working with effects or transitions, you can also copy a set of keyframes and then paste that set to another location.
