Working with text clip

Recommended Posts

Click the + sign to the right of the Sequence 1 tab above the timeline to open a new, blank sequence.

From the IMAGES tab in the bin (top-left), drag the clip to the timeline.

Click EXPORT | VIDEO on the toolbar and export the clip as an APNG file.  image.png

That video file title can then be used in future projects and can be resized, positioned, etc via the EFFECTS menu.

Set the sequence mode to MATCH MONITOR to get an idea of how it will look in export.  MATCH CONTENT may show smaller text.

Another possible way...

  • Create just the text clip as a project (even several text clips if you need them.)
  • Now Save Project As .  Give it a name like TEXT CLIPS   This will save a .vpj file
  • Open VP and start work on the new project
  • Whenever you want a saved text, click the Green Menu button at the top left of the GUI window
  • Slide down to File and then select Import Clips From Another Project.
  • Select your TEXT CLIPS .vpj  file and all the Text clips you made  will be imported to the current project.
  • Provided you never delete the TEXT CLIPS.vpj  file, they will always be available for use. You can even load it and add more Texts and Save  it again (Overwrite.)

Nat proposes an excellent method for saving multiple, individual text files.  For example, you might save ALL text clips from a project...

First, save the completed project.  Use save Project File AS routinely, giving it a unique # or name, so as not to overwrite prior saves.  Using Save Project Files (no AS) will overwrite.  Then you can restore a project to the state it was in when saved.  Just double-click the VPJ file (which isn't playable).

Then delete all but the text file tracks in the project and SAVE AS once again, giving it a unique name - such as TEXT FILES.

Be careful!

Do NOT use Save Project File (no AS) or click the Save Project icon on the toolbar.  That will overwrite your main project.  Click the chevron to its right, to reveal the Save AS choice.


In future projects, bring in the saved text.vpj file as Nat instructs and all those text clips will be available.
