Export problems with Simple text on white background (SOLVED)
Hello. I have HitFilm Express 4. I have created a text-only composite shot, about 3 min. in length. It is black text on a white background. Everything looks as it is supposed to on the preview and I have completed editing to my liking (adjusting the positioning and timing of each of the text elements (layers).
There is one video element that I have added in the timeline in Edit view. It is a 5 second piece of video footage. So that is all to the project- 3 minutes of text (black o a white background), with a 5-second piece of footage inserted near the end. In Edit view, I inserted the composite shot and have my video clip where I want it. Again, everything looks right in preview. I have tried in vain to export this (H264) as an MP4 about 10 times, and never has the composite shot element shown up in the final export. It is just a black screen, then my video clip comes up for 5 seconds.
I have tried moving the tracks around, re-compositing the composite stuff, exporting the composite only, deleting the attached default audio track (though there is no audio anyway), leaving the audio track there, and probably 3 or 4 other random adjustments. Nothing has given me an export of what I see in preview.
Any recommendations would be helpful. The rendering process takes about 10 minutes each time, timeline is "export" and export area is "content area."
