Videomaker – Learn video production and editing, camera reviews › Forums › General › Video and Film Discussion › Real time text effects
Hey everyone. I’m brand new to the forums so please be gentle. Here’s my deal: I work in a mobile DJ environment. We incorporate several visual elements with our music (music videos, background video footage, live camera feed from the dance floor and custom text and graphics) that are mixed together and projected on large screens or flat screens. All of which I’m happy with except the text and text effects.
Currently, I’m using a Videonics (circa 1996) character generator to superimpose text and graphics onto the screens and as you can guess it doesn’t look great. Is there another option out there that will deliver clean looking text and some cool effects that can be typed and exported in real time?
Thanks in advance for the help.
You can find all flavors of character generators on ebay on the cheap, man. Most have been donated but many still float around.
