Hi! Thanks for taking the time to help. I apologize if this question is posted elsewhere, but I've looked long and hard and haven't been able to find a post that quite answers my question, although many got me a lot closer.
So, in Hitfilm Express 2017, I created a long text box that moves from top to bottom, much like credits in a movie, but in the opposite direction. I placed a mask (not the mask in the text layer itself, as I didn't want the mask to move with the text) over that text box and make a slot so that only one line of text can appear at a time as it scrolls down.
I would like to add a second text box and mask combo as well, so that I can have two sets of single lines scrolling through two different sets of text. I want to position them vertically, one above the other.
However, the texts of one text box will also appear through the hole intended for the other text box and vise-versa. Essentially, because the text is scrolling through the entire screen, it pops up in the slot intended for it, but also in the slot at the bottom of the screen intended for a different set of text.
I have fiddled with the mask behavior (add, darken, ect.), but can only get either both to appear while interfering with each other, or both to be covered up. Is there a way to get scrolling text to only be visible on certain parts of the screen without exposing it to holes in other masks?
Thank you very much for taking the time to read this! I really appreciate any help anyone can offer.
