Silent Movie Title Cards
on Sep 9, 2007 at 2:16:11 pm

I am looking for a template or tutorial on creating those old-style silent movie title cards that appeared to explain the action or story in Chaplin/Keaton movies, etc. I have searched AE and PS forums, but no luck.
Thanks for your help.

Not finding anything gives you the chance to be the first!
Use your imagination and an old film plug-in on AE after creating the still in PS. You can create your own lacy frame by scanning an old lace doily from home and pick a type that looks like it's from that era. Courier or Century Schoolbook have been around for a long time. Then add that plug in (use restraint). You can look through hundreds of free fonts on the internet if you don't have one that works already. Best of Luck.

Del, you're a kind man...

What a sorry state when today's designers have to find a tutorial for something because they are afraid to try.

I am a musician who has filmed his first music video at the age of 58. Part of the video requires silent-film-type title cards, so I was interested in your discussion. If you have come up with a solution, I would be most interested to hear. BTW, I am competent with computers but definitely NOT a whiz, so please understand my limits with these programs.
