Text mask not applying to image

PostTue Apr 13, 2021 1:33 pm

Hello everyone,
I'm confused by the following behaviour:

    create a Background
    create a Text
    connect Text to mask Backgroud
    working

    Import Image
    create Text
    connect Text to mask Image
    not working

What am I doing wrong here?
Please see attached pics.

Thank you

Your image size is way bigger than your Text+ node. You can merge your image with a Background node with its alpha set to zero so that the Text+ and image have the same dimensions, then it should work. I would also set the Image Scaling under the Projects Settings to Center Crop with no Resizing so your image is full size in Fusion without the transparent border around the edges. You can also change the size of the Text+ to match the dimensions of your image.

Thank you!
Yes, it makes sense that my image was way too big for the text to actually see the effect!
It's quite not the obvious tho, also because if I apply the text mask directly on the Image, it shows me the Text's outlines (weirdly stretched I must say..), as seen in picture.

Another strange behaviour is that if I try to scale the font up to the piont that it actually makes the mask visible, it has this strange behaviour. It seems somehow clipped, see picture.

Thank you for the bonus tip about Image Resizing, very useful as well! :mrgreen:
