Hey there,
If there is, what is the most efficient way to customize your text in Hitfilm Express like in the image below
/ so that it imitates the colours of a national flag (if I didnt got the link right again) which is Russia in my case.
I wonder if there is an easy way to "multicolor" your text.

    @Gedatzu I did something similar with a PNG of a fuzzy monster only 7 colors of the Rainbow.  I took 7 different images each a separate color overlaid them and drew masks to reveal only the areas with the color where I wanted it.  

    In your example, 3 layer copies of the text in each color then mask the top two so only the bottom color is visible on the top layer.  This will show the middle layer color all up to the top.  The mask the top of the text to show the bottom layer.

    Probably a better way to do it but that's how I know to do it.  Hope this helps.

    Basically that. You could build the fill image in Hitfilm with colored planes. You can also try a 4-color gradient. 

  • Thanks for the quick answers! The first one sounds like a neat solution, gonna try that.
