Timing -> Shift Times.

 2009-03-13, 09:06 Link #284 guest0815 Member   Join Date: Aug 2008 I wanted to use draw commands in \clip to give characters shaped glows and stuff but I can't figure it out. Can the drawing vector coordinates somehow be placed relatively to font positions? I tried drawing a star around the zero point and then enter the coordinates as functions with x/y variables but it didn't seem to work. And just moving one star approximately on top of one letter "by hand" was a huge pita. thanks for reading

I can't really imagine what you mean by that, and even less why you've already jumped to the conclusion that vector clips are the only way to go about solving your problem. Perhaps try using Photoshop or similar to illustrate what you want to achieve. __________________ Aegisub developer [ Forum | Manual | Feature requests | Bug reports | IRC ] Don't ask for: More VSFilter changes (I won't), karaoke effects, help in PM's

I know it's not necessarily the way to go. I just wanted to show I've given it at least a minute of thought instead of just coming in here and basically demanding to be handed the code for custom shaped borders.

Spoiler:

Code:
{\3c&H5FFFF5&}{\clip(m 406 660 l 498 660 l 423 717 l 453 626 l 482 717  )}{\an5\pos(!line.left+syl.center!,!line.middle-14!)}{\blur0\bord0\t(0,800,\bord20\blur23)}{\alpha&HFF\t(0,200,\alpha&H00)}
I placed a starshaped clip there that's masking everything but that growing border. I wondered if you can get an effect like that automagically in the right place once per line or even each character. Moving the starshaped clip around by changing all coordinates by hand everytime is brutal.

Then it's just generating your clipping coordinates using that as center. I think letting all stars have the same rotation will look a bit dull, so perhaps make a way to have each star have a unique (random) rotation. I'd write a generator function for a star as a function in a "code once" template. (Parametrise it on centre coordinate and radius.) __________________ Aegisub developer [ Forum | Manual | Feature requests | Bug reports | IRC ] Don't ask for: More VSFilter changes (I won't), karaoke effects, help in PM's

Thanks!

And only 41 hours passed between googling parametrise and finding out how to write a function that returns a sequence of variables and strings \o/ Knowing shit about math and programming blows ^^#

 2009-03-22, 15:55 Link #289 hancock Junior Member   Join Date: Mar 2009 Hi. I'm new here and I'm still a beginner at typesetting. I want to ask how we can copy an exact texture of a word in a video? Like in this picture below: How did they typeset the exact textures like the written Japanese words? Is there a tool in Ageisub that let you do that? Thanks!

Hi. Do you by chance know the font that was used? Thanks.

 2009-03-23, 05:36 Link #292 pichu Senior Member Fansubber   Join Date: Jul 2004 I don't think After-Effects can determine the vectors in the edges (i.e. the direction) as shown in the picture -- how the etches are created based on the directions -- at least not the default effects, or you'll have to go into plugins/SDK. Other than being too precise, I would think you can make a text layer; duplicate that text layer and put it above the regular text layer: check no fill color, add stroke width (maybe 3); and then apply Checkerboard or maybe even Grid effect with Stencil Alpha blending. This way, you'll get an etched outline on top of the regular text. Finally, apply Alpha Inverted Matte on the lower regular text layer and get it over with. Last edited by pichu; 2009-03-23 at 05:49.

Can we perhaps go a little bit slower into doing this?
I have just started learning how to typeset a week ago and frankly, i have no idea what you're saying. Can you show me how it's done with snapshots? Or a basic guide about how to do text layers would be okay too. Thanks a lot.

 2009-03-23, 12:14 Link #294 pichu Senior Member Fansubber   Join Date: Jul 2004 Well I would think that discussing about 'how to do so in after-effects' would be off-topic in this thread, yes?

But isn't this a help thread where people ask for guides and stuff? On the previous pages, some people even wrote down a bunch of command lines as to how something is done.

By the way, do you know a font that looks similar to the word texture above?

 2009-03-23, 21:53 Link #296 Deddo typesetting ftw! Fansubber   Join Date: Feb 2009 Too lazy to check all of my font database. This one was on my mind. Use it with another font, put it behind. It will look similar. DL link: http://www.mediafire.com/?zoxtgoj9xtu

I won't say this thread is a general typesetting help; it's specifically for aegisub. If you're looking for a font, there are tons of sites available for you to search on. I don't have a good database for the fonts I own.

And, as for After-Effects comment, I just did a quick mock-up of your sign. I'm sure there are better ways than this.

 2009-04-16, 14:11 Link #300 BOFH_of_OZ Gamemaster   Join Date: Apr 2009 Location: OZ Here's a quickie question (or so I hope): I'm trying to follow the advanced tricks tutorial, with layered borders and motion blur. For motion, I'm trying to emulate getting closer to the viewer (by fscx/fscy) as well as moving syllables. Here's the code: {\an5\r\alpha&H80&\t($sstart,$smid,\fscx!100+$laye r*20!\fscy!100+$layer*20!\1a&HFF&\move($SX,$SY,!$S X-($layer*1.5)!,!$SY+$layer!))\t($smid,$send,\fscx10 0\fscy100\1a&HD0&\move(!$SX-($layer*1.5)!,!$SY+$layer!,!$SX+($layer*1.5)!,!$SY-$layer!))} The problem is, even though the "zoom" effect is working for each syllable, the whole line is also being moved, and in the end all 7 layers are spread like butter on a slice of bread, unreadable and ugly... Here's a quick screenshot explanation of what I'm doing. (1) is the start of a line. (2) shows that the move/zoom is working for a syllable. On (3), we see that the lines are sliding down, as per first "move" tag. And (4) is the end of the line... Does anyone know why the move tag applies to the syllables and the whole line? And how to fix this? Or maybe there's an easier way of doing it?
