Hi All,

I would like my footage to play and a title to pop up for a few seconds on the film and then disappear e.g "Bithday party" I have done this on other movie editors but on Hitfilm it seems rather long winded if I have understood that I need to make a composite shot...

 

Is there an easier and quicker way than doing a composite shot?

    Not really, though you can speed up the process just slightly by pre-building the composite shot and saving that comp as a template.  Maybe make several template comps with text in different positions for different situations.

    Also, once you've got one text comp built/imported, you can duplicate the comp -- from the Media tab, not the timeline -- and modify the properties of the duplicate, which will also save time.  Just be sure to also rename the duplicate to avoid confusion.

    Right-click on the comp in the Media panel.  Choose "Save As..."  Easy breezy!

    Notification settings are in your forum profile, under Preferences.

    Go to the index for saving composite shots in the description or better yet watch the whole thing (..and maybe some others in the series)
