Shouldn’t matter once it’s properly cropped, right?

PM me for links to my edits; apparently, some feel shy about this.

Has anyone notice that the episode number is poking out ever so slightly the whole time before its supposed to be revealed? I’m not a Blender guru so I have no idea how to correct this. I could mask it later AE.

It could be that the beginning frame is set too early in he animation. Mine animates the camera rather than the text, I believe Jack’s does too. You can most likely solve it by changing the animation frame range. I believe this is located on the right menu or on the bottom wimdow. This may require you to also adjust the original of the camera to not show the text.

Post a screen shot and we can help more.

That depends on the output size. I have mine set to always output the viewable area only (no black border area) so it doesnt have to be cropped.
If that is the case with Jack’s, cropping could cause minute issues with crawl placement.

Nah! I’m thrilled to have this. Thanks for the work!

I’m glad!
As Digi said, you can adjust the position of the crawl in the animation timeline. Unlike Digi’s crawl creator, mine actually moves the words, not the camera. This being said, I linked the entire crawl together I believe (I honestly haven’t messed with it in a few months), and you should be able to move the entire crawl down a few decimal points down until the pixels are gone.

There are plenty of tutorials on YouTube on animation that can give you a general idea of how to fix your issue. I know that sounds like a lazy excuse, but as I said earlier, I haven’t worked on the crawl creator in a few months.

I have it on my computer if it isn’t, although the blender files have been tampered with so you’ll see my crap on it.

It’s also on the Spleen if you have an account.

Could you send me a link to it too? I’d love to make my own Star Wars crawls that look like the real thing, so if it’s no trouble, would you send me a link please?

Would you be willing to do a screen cap of yourself using the template with a narrative?

I would, not a bad idea actually. I have a few days coming up in a couple of weeks where I might be able to work something up. Also, I have a version 2 of the crawl creator that I think people might like to check out. It adds some light lense distortion and chromatic aberration that can be adjusted to the user’s liking.

You have a second version of CCC? I didn’t know that

It’s new and I haven’t worked all of the kinks out of it quite yet. Once it’s they way I like it I will release it. I should have some time next Tuesday to record a video tutorial to explain all of the features and how to use it.

That is cool, I didn’t know that, I’d like to have v2.0 when it comes out lol, v1.0 is great, but I’m so pumped for v2.0

I’m happy to announce that a new version is now available with a video tutorial included.

PM me for a link

Seems to be a possible issue with the justified paragraphs leaving a space where there shouldn’t be one if a line ends with a period? Like this (end of the first line):

Actually, oddly enough, it seems to be the second line that’s going over just a hair…weird…

JEDIT: Yep, just had to adjust the kerning on a few lines individually. False alarm!

Yeah, I always adjust the kerning when I make a new crawl. It just looks too perfect if I don’t. Especially if you are trying to match the original crawls

I’d already adjusted to match words per line, but there was a bit of hang-over on the right on a few of em that I had to adjust further.

Yeah, like I said in the video tutorial, kerning is kind of tedious, but it’s worth the time to make it look good.
