When you customize graphics in the Designer, you can use the Motion & Data tab to access a design layer's position, rotate, and scale. Additional properties such as a shape layer's skew or a text layer's column width can be accessed from this area.
- In Titler Live's playout interface, select a graphic in the layers workspace, then click the Edit Graphic button in the Preview panel.
- In the Designer, select a layer or group of layers from the canvas or timeline workspace.
- Click the Properties > Layer > Motion & Data tab.
- Transform the position, rotation, and scale of objects
- Set a layer's transparency
- Hide layers
- Isolate layers
- Render effects inside a paragraph box
- Adjust margins
- Adjust the width of columns
Tip: You can use keyframes to set additional motion and behavior properties to a graphic. 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.
Tips: 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.
Tip: 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.
Note: Adjusting the Opacity of a design layer from the Motion & Data tab applies the adjustment across all style elements of that design layer.
Mark the Hide Shape or Hide Paragraph checkbox to hide a selected design layer, which can help you focus on other aspects of a graphic or group of objects.
Mark the Isolate Layer checkbox to isolate a design layer in a composition and prevent the design layer from cutting into other design layers in the graphic.
Note: Isolated design layers render separately from other design layers, 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 text 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.
