I've found a really nice motion title that I'd like to use (Motion titles -> Fun -> 02SportsLowerThird) - however, I'd like to have all the objects in the title (except the background) moved down and to the left a bit.
I know how to move the 'canvas' for the title after adding it to my timeline, but I'd have to do it for every time I add it (up to 72 or 90 times per video!), which would make it a little tedious..
No, saving as a new custom title after moving the canvas does not save the canvas position.. (I might be misusing the word 'canvas' here..).
I can also drag individual objects around with the mouse if I go into edit mode on the title (double-click it on the timeline), but I cannot select multiple elements, and since there is no way to control that I move things 'Xpx left, Y px down), I can't move the objects in a controlled fashion (there are 6 objects + background in total in this title).
Any google search for 'how to create motion title' leads to 'how to add a motion title to your project' videos, which is mildly frustrating..
I have requested that movement of titles and other objects have a key-click movement with the arrow keys, but that will have to wait until the next version. Here's one work-around: 1. Create a separate PRE project-file just for moving your titles. 2. In that video, set up your movement pattern with the different text elements. 3. Whenever you create a new video, first add the new text content to the 'text-title' save, and export it.
4. Load it into your new project with the new content.
If your videos are different lengths, this may not work too well, but even so, with a template set up, you can make adjustments for length. I use as similar template for titles and just re-use the template with different text content.
