Check out this video that shows you one after at the other, all the options and titles that come with Kinetic Text 2.0!
In the Basic Title category you will find a collection of titles that have very basic animations with either one or two word titles. These are easy to use and can be used in a wide variety of circumstances.
Continuous titles are also a collection of simple kinetic typography titles. The difference with these is that they can be strung together as many times as you wish and can be made to look seamless. This allows you to add as many words to a string of kinetic titles as you wish for a long or short flowing kinetic typography sentence. Pay attention to the drop-down menu to assign it as the beginning text, middle, or ending animation.
TIMING CONTROL TITLES
Timing Control Titles are a unique set of titles that allow you to type a sentence of up to 8 words and you can control the timing when each word will appear. Ave them appear one right after the other, mixed up, or time them along with a voiceover for a more organic feel as someone speaks.
Stackable Titles are an incredibly useful set of titles because at the point of where you stack one over the next, the title below it gets animated out right before the next one appears. These titles are also useful in controlling the timing of the next text that appears. Stack the same animation one over the other for a seamless flow, or even mix and match stackable titles!
The Multi-word titles come in very useful when you want to make a more complex, animation heavy sentence. Everything (of course) is pre keyed and all you have to do is choose each word and add in your own text….saving you literally hours on end of time.
There are animation options inside each title depending on which one you use. Some come with a drop down menu that actually allows you to change the way the text comes in and out. Others you can choose to turn on or off the out animation while Timing Control titles don’t include an out animation and you can choose to use one from the section called “6: Animations”.
EASY TO USE IN FCPX
Kinetic Text is easy to use inside Final Cut Pro X. Simply browse the various titles in the Titles browser, choose one you like, place it on your timeline, then add your own text to each word place holder.
EXTRAS AND ANIMATIONS
Kinetic Text comes with some great extras. A section called “Animations” allows you several options to add an animation layer at the ending of a Kinetic Text title if you choose a different animation or to add to those titles that either allow you an out animation option or don’t include an out animation. Next you have instructions for the various types of titles. Finally you have a gradient and solid background that you can easily place under any title.
