Moving Text/Titles
Posted: 11 Oct 2007 01:06 PM
Hi, does anyone know how can I move the title to any part of the screen? I have been able to add a title with an effect but the problem is that it covers the image. I want to know if there is a way to put it on the corner or just personalize it and position it anywhere.
Thanks

You can certainly change the horizontal alignment to be left, center or right. If you want more control beyond that, you would need to create a custom title. Fortunately, Ayumi created a package of 25 titles placed in various locations. Here's the post: (view post 125618). This is for XP, by the way. It won't work in Vista (at least not without modification).

Thanks, but the problem is that I have Vista and I cant find that feature. I have been trying to move the text somewhere else but I cant solve this problem.

When you create titles, there is a choice to change your text and font. Under there you can change font size, style, position (left/center/right).

In addition, you might try a different 'animation', perhaps with a subtitle...

I could try modifying Ayumi's pack to work in Vista, but it might take me a little while.

Thank you but I have seen that option. The thing is that I want to drag it to exactly one place, not just moving it by (left, center, right) I have also tried with a subtitle but again, I have the same problem.
It would be great if you could modify Ayumi´s pack. Its not that urgent but I would need it for this week if possible.
Again, thanks for helping

Sorry it took so long. Smiley

I've only made these changes to the XML without being able to test them on Vista. Please let me know if they work or not.

Copy/paste the following code into Notepad (Start > Programs > Accessories > Notepad). Then save this as AyumiTitles.xml in your Documents folder. Next you need to make sure you have a folder called C:\Program Files\Movie Maker\Shared\AddOnTFX. If not create the folder under Shared. Finally copy the AyumiTitles.xml file to the AddOnTFX folder and restart Movie Maker.

Hey dont worry.. I am not in a hurry.
I have created the folder under shared and added the file AyumiTitles.xml now.. what do you mean by restart Movie Maker? (will my files be deleted?)
Once I "restart" Movie Maker what is the next step?
Thanks one more time

Save your project. Close down Movie Maker and start WMM again. This step is needed to load the new titles. Then when you go to Tools > Titles & Credits, you'll have 25 new title animations available. I believe they are ordered down the columns as follows:

A F K P U
B G L Q V
C H M R W
D I N S X
E F O T Y

A = 1
B = 2
etc.
Y = 25

Great, I see those options now.. The thing is that that the title still doesnt go to the bottom right corner.. (the columns are not precise; it only goes to the center and a couple of cm´s to the right but not completely)
Is there a way to use the ayoumi titles but also add some animation to the text?

The positions are all driven by the lines that say "EntrancePosition", "MainPosition" and "ExitPosition". You could modify those to have different starting, main and ending positions to have your title come from off the screen, to a specific point, then go back somewhere else.

The screen coordinates go from (0,0) in the top left to (1,1) in the lower right. Numbers lower than 0 and higher than 1 will be off screen.

Play with the numbers until you get the titles where you want them.

I put the ayumititles.xml file in the program exactly as I have others from here, but see nothing when I look for it under title animations

XP or Vista? And if on Vista are you using the older 2.6 or the newer 6.0 version of Movie Maker?

Basically I'm asking if you picked the right XML for your version of Movie Maker.

For people who don't want to mess with XML code and a trial/error process for creating moving titles in Movie Maker, another option is our new $15 TitleFX PRO Wizard for Movie Maker. If you are interested, you can read more about it at http://www.pixelan.com/mm/titlefx.htm Thanks.

Hi there,

I realise I'm coming to this pretty late in the day, but I've been scouring the net everywhere to try to move the text in Movie Maker. I tried your xml file, but I'm on 2.6 and it doesn't work for me. Is there anything else you can suggest, please?

Thanks so much,

Taz

Taz,

This thread was for the full Vista version (6.0). I know 2.6 runs on Vista, but WMM 2.6 is really a recompiled version of the XP WMM 2.1 so you want to be looking for XP titles/transitions/effects.

If you go back to the second post in this thread there is a link...

Or here you go: view post 125618

Hi,
I was just wondering if there is a way to animate the titles once they have been placed in one of these 25 random positions? I have Vista Version 6.0 running Windows 7 and it's a 64 bit system.
Thanks for your help

There are several animation effects you can add (e.g. Fading), but I suppose you probably mean have them move? I'm not exactly sure how you want them to animate.

You might go to Rehanfx.org and read about the XML parameters for titles and see what is possible. If you can describe the animation more, I might be able to help. For example, say you want it to move from somewhere to somewhere else, or you want the title to fade in/out, or spin, or move down then fade, etc. If you can show another title that is similar, that also helps.

I don't mean anything fancy like moving from one place to the other. Simply fading in/out would be great.
I'll check out Rehanfx.org as well. Thanks for your help

I believe they already have an EntranceEffect and ExitEffect of 'EffectFade'... they should already be fading in and out.

I mean something where the text slowly zooms in then fades out.
What i've got is a quote from someone which i've put in italics. I wanted the person who said that quote to be slightly to the side of it, but not italics and, because you can only make a title one font/size etc, i added a title overlay to the inital title with the person who said the quote and placed it in the right place to the quote using the random positions. However, my main quote slowly zooms in then fades out, but my overlay just sits there static. It would be nice for that to zoom in slowly then fade out like the quote does.

Is it possible to load what you have to YouTube and post a link? I'm still trying to visualize what you need help with. If you have the picture of the person as the video track, you could use an Ease In effect to zoom in slightly. And you can use the scaling of a title to make it get bigger. Apart from position, is there another title animation that is similar?

Good day! Pardon for my question. I'm not a programmer and not much on computer like the above configurations. But could you give a short guide on how to use the above configurations in Windows Movie Maker. I would appreciate it a lot. Thanks very much!
