Group objects in a design

When you customize graphics in the Title Designer, you can create a group of different objects which allows you to customize all objects in a group at the same time as if they were one object. You can move, scale, and keyframe groups, as well as apply effects and animations to groups. You can also modify individual objects in a group.

Note: The Title Designer and the features described in this article are only available in StretchCast Premium.

What do you want to do?

Group objects

  1. Open a graphic in the Title Designer.
  2. In the Title Designer, select the objects that you want to group. There are several ways to select objects:
    • Click outside of an object, on a blank space, in the workspace, and drag the pointer over the desired objects.
    • Click next to a layer in the timeline and drag the pointer over the desired layers.
    • Press CTRL (Windows) or Command (Mac) and click on each object in the workspace or timeline that you want to select.
  3. Right-click (Windows) or Control+click (Mac) on one of the objects in the timeline or workspace and select Group from the context menu.

    A blue bounding box appears around all grouped objects in the workspace.
