I was just wondering what most people think is most effective when creating text. Should I use neon lights, particle effects, textures that I would create, or what?

Also, as far as transition effects between scenes, when creating a fade away trasition for example, would you stack scenes on top of each other, then slowly bring up the transparency on the top scene?.

Thanks, any help would be appreciated. biggrin

General titles should be done in an editing program. for certain special effects titles, VisionLab can be helpful, and I find it best to create an image of the title in Photoshop or a similar image editor, and then import that image into VisionLab to add the effects work.

As far as transitions, the method you suggested will work, but again, that's really a basic editing thing and should be done in your video editing program, rather than VisionLab.

Also, since VisoinLab will only render audio for one of the video tracks, you'd need to realign the audio for the second clip. So, as Axeman said, you'd be generally best off not doing it in VisionLab.
