Flip Over Lower Third not properly animating all characters

PostSat Apr 24, 2021 3:47 am

Hey everyone.

Apologies if this has been answered elsewhere but I searched for some time and couldn't find anything. I'm also a long-suffering Vegas Pro convert but am still very much a noob with Resolve.

I make indie game impressions videos for YouTube. I typically have a title that shows the developer, platforms and price for the game I'm currently featuring. I'm trying to use the Flip Over Lower Third for this, with a custom background colour. Should be simple enough but for whatever reason, the title is always showing the last few characters of what's in it, regardless of where the animation is. For example, here's what one completed title should look like:

Example of title I'm creating.

As per the template, it's supposed to flip in the characters one by one until it gets to the end. What it does is instantly display the DN from the last line and then animate the rest. If I reduce the number of characters, the issue persists, unless I make the title basically only a few characters long.

I've redone the title multiple times, I've tried doing it in a fresh project from scratch and I've explored every setting it offers and I can't figure out a solution to this. It's frustrating because I really like the template, it just doesn't seem to want to animate properly.

Anyone know what I could do to resolve this (sorry)? Thanks all! :)

The issue is with the Follower on the Text+ node of the Title, if you add more than one line then a character or more is left visible from the start of the animation, it is a quirk or bug of the Follower. The quickest fix is to add a mask and keyframe it to cover the unwanted characters until they should be revealed, at least it is one way I found to help the issue.

Thank you very much for this! Definitely a pain to have to do it this way but if it works, it works! Hopefully this bug can get resolved soon.

Same problem here. The workaround proposed might work but obviously this need to be fixed.

Is there a formal place to report bugs like this to Blackmagic?

I've played around with it a bit more and found that you can also leave a space or two at the end, this will keep the last letter from showing at the beginning, the overall bug still needs to be fixed though.

You can also right-click on the Follower text box in the Modifier tab and choose Expression. Then add a "\r" before the "\n" and that seems to fix the issue, don't know if anybody wants to bother jumping through hoops like that though.

Thank you for that information, very helpful! :)

I'm making another video this weekend so I'll test those methods and see how they work out.

So I just tried your trick above and it works great! Yeah, it's a pain and this bug should definitely be fixed but it's not a ton of work to get the desired result. Thank you very much!

Does anyone know if there's a formal place to report this bug to Blackmagic? Thanks again!
