Topic: Text over image - best practices for fade in?
I am curious about how the slideshow below created text that fades in, without any change to the image.
Basically, if you check out how the title text appears over the image near the beginning (with about 3.40 remaining), and again how the interview subject text appears a couple of seconds later (with about 3.36 remaining), there is a fade in to the text, but not the image.
I assumed that they carried two JPGs - one without the text (to start) and one with the text, which would appear via crossfade.
However, when I do this, the entire image does that dim-to-light thing that the images do during a cross fade. The effect is lost, therefore, because the SAME image will fade a bit, then come back up with text on it.
Can anyone give me a technique to have JUST the text fade in, as per this audio slideshow:
Thanks in advance.
