Text appears behind door as we slide it opens???

Hi all,

In Motion 3, how do you make text appears behind a door as you open the door (sliding from left to right)?

Did a search but nada. I have seen it in some tv programmes and would like to do that effect for a project.

Any help is a big thank you!!!

Besides doing a search. Have you actually had a go at it?. Also what level are you on with Motion. The reason for asking i have just started to familiarise myself with the software. Reading from your statement you need a effect of a door or import from FCP also one needs to understand Motion.

If you had a green screen behind the door and keyed the titles onto that (in FCP) , then I guess as you opened the door to reveal the green the titles would appear. However there's probably an easier way to do it; must be something to do with layers and wipes but I don't know enough about Motion I'm afraid.

Hope you find a solution!

Barn-Door effect. Go into motion and get yourself a template of Barn-doors, then go into text and type out what you want. Keyframe your titles according the size you want. I hope that helps as i had a go and it works.

Frank has a good point, though I don't know of the barn door effect. This effect is exceedingly simple to do, at least if you keep it simple, and could be done in FCP as well. Duplicate your clip and layer it, top to bottom, duplicate clip, text, clip. Use a crop tool on the top duplicate clip to reveal the bottom two clips by applying keyframes timed to the door. Motion would allow you to do that in real time, though it would be a little tricky.
