Avid Marquee and placing text along a path

Untitled-2.gif

You can place text on and crawl text along straight or curved paths. A path is a text container that uses a straight or curved path as the baseline for the text. The text can crawl (scroll) along the path. You create and edit paths using the shape-drawing tools. As you can do with other container objects, you can move, scale, and rotate the path in three-dimensional space.

To create a path:
1. Draw the path using any of the shape-drawing tools.

2. Select Object > Convert Shape to Path.


To convert a path into a shape:
1. Click the Edit tool, and then click the path.
2. Select Object > Convert Path to Shape.

After you create a path, you can use the Text tool to add text to it.

To add text to a path:
1. Click the Text tool, and then click above the path object.
An insertion point appears on the path.
2. Enter text as you normally would for any text object.

Now use your standard crawl settings to allow your text to follow your new path. Do not forget to sign up for one of our up and coming Avid bundles to further your career!
