Add global attributes to objects

You can use global attributes to position, rotate, and scale objects, as well as hide and isolate layers in your design.

  1. Open a graphic in Titler Pro.

    Tip: For details about using Titler Pro with a video editor, see one of the articles in the Add graphics to projects in your video editor section of our help center.

  2. Select an object or group of objects in the workspace or timeline.
  3. Click the Attributes > Object > Global tab.
  4. What do you want to do next? See the following sections for details.

    Tip: You can use keyframes to change global attributes in a design. See Animate objects with keyframes for details.

Transform the position, rotation, and scale of objects

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.

Tips

  • Click the Lock btn-lock.png 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 btn-reset.png buttons to reset one or all of the settings in the Transform section to their default setting.

Hide objects

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.

Isolate layers

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.

Adjust the width of columns

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, for example, to show credits with actors and their characters' names at the end of a film, enter one line of text in a paragraph box, position the cursor where you want to split the text into two columns, and press TAB. Repeat that step for each line of text. Alternatively, you can also create a separate text document with a tabbed space in each line of text and then copy and paste that text into Titler Pro.
