When you customize graphics in the Title Designer, you can use global attributes to position, rotate, and scale objects, as well as hide and isolate layers in your design.
Note: The Title Designer and the features described in this article are not available in Titler Live Express.
- In Titler Live's playout interface, select a graphic in the playlist, then click the Edit Title Design button in the Attributes panel.
- In the Title Designer, select an object or group of objects in the workspace or timeline.
- Click the Attributes > Object > Global tab.
- What do you want to do next? See the following sections for details.
- Transform the position, rotation, and scale of objects
- Set transparency
- Hide objects
- Isolate layers
- Render effects inside a paragraph box
- Adjust margins
- Adjust the width of columns
Tip: You can use keyframes to change global attributes in a design. See Animate objects with keyframes for details.
In the Transform section, click the Position, Rotation, or Scale slider or arrows, or double-click the value and enter a new value, to change the object's appearance.
- Click the Lock button next to the Scales settings if you want adjust the X, Y, and Z axes simultaneously and preserve the object's aspect ratio.
- Click one of the Reset buttons to reset one or all of the settings in the Transform section to their default setting.
Click the Opacity slider or arrows, or double-click the value and enter a new value, to change the object's transparency value.
Mark the Hide Shape or Hide Paragraph checkbox to hide a selected object, which can help you focus on other aspects of a graphic or group of objects.
Mark the Isolate Layer checkbox to isolate an object in a composition and prevent the object from cutting into other objects in the design.
Note: Isolated objects render separately from other objects, which takes longer to render the design.
Mark the Clip to Paragraph Box checkbox to limit the render area of effects to within the boundary of a paragraph box.
When the Clip to Paragraph Box checkbox is marked, click the Margin slider or arrows to change the clip margin.
Click the Column Width slider or arrows, or double-click the value and enter a new value, to change the amount of tabbed spacing between columns of text.
Tip: To create two columns of text, enter the first line of text for the first column, press TAB, then enter the first line of text for the second column on the same line. Repeat this method for each line of text. Titler Pro will format the tabbed spaces to create consistent spacing between columns. Alternatively, you can also create a separate text document with a tabbed space in each line of text and then copy and paste the text into Titler Live.
