Title at the bottom of the video help!!!
Posted: 17 Apr 2011 12:05 PM
I was wondering if there was a way to get a title right down on the bottom left or bottom right or both so it was sitting right at the bottom with no space in between here is an example:

I would really appreciate any help :)

I created a set of Corner Text titles that will allow you to do just that. I actually created 3 variations

First copy/paste the XML below into Notepad:

<TransitionsAndEffects Version="2.8">
<Titles>
<TitleDLL guid="TFX">
<Title name="Corners (top)" iconid="13" guid="Corners (top)" comment="Blaine's Corners (top) - post 241531">
<Param name="Animation" value="TitleMultiTitles" />
<Param name="DepthBufferFormat" value="80" />
<Param name="Description" value="Titles placed the top corners (either or both)" />
<Paragraph>
<Param name="IsOneLine" value="true" />
<Param name="EntranceEffect" value="EffectNone" evaluation="Linear" />
<Param name="ExitEffect" value="EffectNone" evaluation="Linear" />
<Param name="EntranceDuration" value="0.1" />

</Paragraph>
</Title>
</TitleDLL>
</Titles>
</TransitionsAndEffects>


Save that on your desktop as CornerText.xml and copy that file to C:\Program Files\Movie Maker\Shared\AddOnTFX.

When you restart WMM, you'll have three additional 2-line title animations:
- Corners (top) -- top left / top right
- Corners (diagonal) -- top left / bottom right
- Corners (bottom) -- bottom left / bottom right

Whatever you type in the first box will go on the left. Whatever you type in the second box will go on the right. If you don't want one or the other, leave that text blank.

You can modify the font, color, size, bold, etc. just like other titles.

I should provide one word of caution. If you are intending to show your video on a TV, these titles are at the edge of the video and on some TVs they may appear off the screen. But if you are showing on a computer, Vimeo, YouTube, etc. then you should be fine. If you don't see the titles completely on your TV, then see if it has a setting to turn off overscan. I'd recommend turning that setting off all the time anyway.
