Help for Notepad credits?
Posted: 07 Jun 2006 09:30 AM
Hi, I was just wondering if anybody had a code for, or could tell me how to make Veronica Mars-style credits (example here: Veronica Mars credits) - the kinda ripped notepad overlay.

Thanks for the clip, that helps immensely to visualize what is needed.

If you were willing to leave out the animation of the drawn art, you could do these as title image overlays. You'd make an image of the notebook page (horizontal or vertical). The part where you want the video, you'd leave that transparent (must use .png or .gif format for the image).

See www.papajohn.org > Editing Video > XML > Script Types > Custom Overlays.

I also want like most of the thing transparent so it's small will sit in the corner of the screen.

I'm working on something... here's a preview of a Veronica Mars style intro. Is that what you are looking for?

Not to be picky or anything but just wondering if you could find some way to make the overlay go on and off like a wipe or something, maybe even like a crumple like its being crumpled up or something instead of just appearing and dissapearing. Sorry, I know I am a pest, but I just wondred if this was possible. Thnx.

Crumpling, no. (In fact if you look at the original, there is no crumpling). For the wipe, I wanted that to happen, but with title overlays and text, what you are asking is not possible... the best I could achieve was to make the text wipe on and off.

Nice work, indeed---I hope the fellow gets all the credit he can stand. I tried to say so on his blog but never could get a message through. Blaine's work makes my day every time.

Regarding another image, you can just replace the .png, or copy everything between <Title> and </Title> in the XML and make another version. Be sure to change the name. If you need to change the position of the title, you may have to alter the parameters in the .xml.
