Hello,

If anyone has the time I would love a plugin that writes in real time "Help me, I'm in Hell"

I know there's one in the plugin folder but it doesn't quite have the scary effect if you know what I mean....

Thanks

You could make it yourself. It isn't hard. What software do you have?

Premier 6 & Adobe Photoshop 6.

I would love to do it myself but don't have time to learn how to make a alamdv plugin.

Its hard enough learning all these Adobe products on my own smile

can anyone help?

thanks

YOu don't need to make it into a plug-in. Just write it on a transparent background in photoshop, and then mask it so it appears to be written in premiere.

I guess I could do that....

If I wanted to try and make the plugin myself is it just like 'Draw one letter then save it as a TIFF. Then repeat, repeat and repeat?'

Dam, but I want it to be written in real time.....so I guess I would have to write one side of the letter, save as TIFF......repeat repeat.......?

No, write the whole sentance, and then, using an animated mask, have it move along the words, as if they were being written.

You can do masks in Premiere, right?

If you have adobe illustrator you could do it in a much more simple way.
