How To - Newspaper Headlines Piling on Each Other Effect?
on Sep 10, 2012 at 3:50:20 pm

I am trying to create an effect where .jpeg newsarticles appear on screen one at a time, piling up on each other. Ideally they would come from different sides of the screen (I imagine the effect like a series of newspapers being thrown down on top of each other, emphasizing a recurring headline).

Many thanks for any/all help.
Dave

I would place the paper where I want it to end up. Create a Position and Scale Key frame. Then move the play head back say 30 frames. Increase the scale and then change the position so it looks like it is coming from the right, left, top or bottom so the papers come from different directions. You could have the position move the paper completely off the screen or not, if it doesn't go off the screen add a 5 frame Fade In/Fade Out behavior so it dissolves in. Hope this helps and best of luck.

That's really helpful Stephen. I did it, but reverted back to FCP 7, as I haven't learned Motion yet, and am slightly pressed for time.

Perhaps I need to check out your DVD!!

Thanks again for the quick response

Very best.
Dave
