More of a Design Question - Dealing with Text and Video
on Sep 14, 2018 at 3:12:18 pm

Good Morning,

I work in a corporate environment where I get a lot of colliding feedback from the Up and Ups (we have a shifty approval process). I just introduced them to Screenlight (being new to it myself) and I'm going to have to figure out a way to hammer out a good approval process in.

One of the most recent situations is one approver likes smaller text and one approver thinks the text needs to be bigger because it is too difficult to read. I can agree on both counts because I enjoy seeing more video but when they want so much text-on-screen it's hard to figure out a good solution (corporate construction by the way).

Does anyone have any advice on using a lot of text-on-screen but still making it readable and making the video still viewable. I think my solution is going to come down to having a text slide and then the video to follow for times like this.

I know it is more of a communication issue but I was checking to see if anyone had advice on having text and video on the same screen?

Any help is much appreciated, Thanks!

Make sure your client understands that in general people don't want to read much when they watch a video. A lot of people will stop reading the text if there is too much. If you have a voice in the video then the text is just to reinforce the key points. Without seeing the video or text you want in the video I really can say more than this. Best of luck.

You should have them settle it between themselves. Really. Two approvers with rather different points of view? They need to resolve it, and come back to you with a resolution they will both agree on.

You can't fix decision-by-committee. Only they can fix that.

System:
Dell Precision T7600 (x2)
Win 7 64-bit
32GB RAM
Adobe CC 2017.1 (as of 8/2017)
256GB SSD system drive
4 internal media drives RAID 5
Typically cutting short form from UHD MP4, HD MP4, and HD P2 MXF.
