Video inside text/titles
on Nov 12, 2007 at 4:13:15 pm

I see a lot of information online about putting video inside text for Photoshop, After Effects and Sony Vegas, but I haven't found anything that helps me to put video inside text in Apple Motion 3. Any clues?

On another note - is Zaxwerks all it's cracked up to be, or can Motion do most of what ZW can do?

place your text above the footage then in properties set the blend mode to stencil luma.

Hope this helps.
