Multi line Titles
How do you/Can you create multiple lines in the Title Window? It shows room for more than one line, but it only overwrites the first line if you hit "enter" for a second line. Is that all there is to this program???? Missing Vegas more everyday since the switch to Linux.
Found the problem just messing around with all the bells and whistles in the "Title Adjustments Screen". I had the "pitch" set to 1 and that made all the lines "overwrite" the one's above/below each other. With the "pitch" set a 0, all the lines showed up one below the other. Glad that's fixed. Now I just need to figure out the rest of the program. Have no idea how to go about figuring out "key frames", but I usually don't need them anyway.
Thanks for the quick reply's to my question.
I found that you have to increase the "pitch" up to the 50's+ to see the lines separate. They still did not look evenly spaced on the screen, so I don't know why you would use it. It shouldn't even be called "pitch" as that is the number of "letters per inch" of a font. Like 12 pitch, or 10 pitch; 12 letters or 10 letters per inch. It should be called "line spacing" then people would know what it does. There should also be an "arrow" next to the box to increase the values by (20, 40, 50, etc.) like the "font" box above it. Go to 50-60, then increase/decrease by single units.
Still don't see what the "items" in right clicking do when I do it. Will have to "mess around" some more. 😉
You're right about "Pitch." Better change it to "line spacing". If you want to try opening a ticket in the bug tracker. GG and Phyllis are quick to answer and solve bugs. I think that communication with developers is a great strength of Cinelerra GG Infinity.
A good place to start discovering the particularities of the Title plugin is the manual: chapter 10, section 10.9, "Title":
Cinelerra was created by an eccentric personality, who prefers to do things manually instead of using automatisms. Good Guy continues down this path in Cinelerra-GG. That doesn't mean it's not a powerful program. Quite the contrary, if you go deeper into it you can do it all and in many different ways.

With the options you can change the color of the characters, the font in use, add underlines, make some characters bold, change the size of the characters, etc. Here is a quick and dirty example of what they do.
