Flying Text Layer

This layer displays two lines of customizable text horizontally centered in the screen. They can be animated to slide past each other in different directions or to slide as one. The distance and duration of the slide can be altered.

Group Parameter Function
Content Line 1/2 These are the lines of text that will appear. It is possible to leave a line empty to show only one of them.
Text Duration Set the time for the layer to complete its animation.
Animation Animation Type Choose the direction in which the lines of text move when set to Live. The Cross Over options make the lines slide in opposite directions.
Movement Determines the amount of sliding that will happen in pixels. Lower the value for a more subtle animation.
Background Choose how the Background defined below should transition. If Dissolve is selected, a duration parameter will become available.
Text Delay This sets how long the text will wait to appear after going Live.
Appearance Font Line 1/2 You can use the Mac font chooser to adjust how each line of text will look.
Drop Shadow Enables options for a drop shadow to be applied on the text. You can set the color, opacity, blur amount and the distance and direction from the text.
Geometry Line 1/2 Baseline The vertical position of the title text in relation to the center of the screen.
Background Type Defines a background for the whole layer. Choose from Constant Color, Gradient Left/Right, Gradient Bottom/Top or Custom Image.
Color 1/2 Choose a color for a constant color, or two colors for a gradient.
Image If Custom Image is set above, pick the image to be used for the background. The image is scaled proportionately to fit the width of the document, and the top is aligned to the top of the document.
Background Animation Image An image can be animated on top of the background. You can make it gradually move horizontally, vertically or rotate. This option only works if the Background Type set above is not None.
Opacity Set the opacity of the animated image. Lowering the opacity reveals the background as set in the above section. This background animation follows the transparency of the background set above, so its opacity will be affected by the alpha channel of the background.
Translation X Defines a speed to scroll the image left/right.
Translation Y Defines a speed to scroll the image up/down.
Rotation Defines a speed to rotate the image clockwise/counterclockwise.
