Tutorial: Sliding Panels – Part 3 (Text Layers)

This is the 3rd of 3 planned tutorials on “Sliding Panels.” In this tutorial, I use the panels created in Part 1 as a backdrop for the caption layers. The intent is to show how to manipulate the text placement using tilt, rotation center changes, layer pan settings, rotation, and the caption position settings.

Text layers are unique in that the layer content is adjustable … that is, you can move it around without actually moving the layer itself. So, it is possible to use only caption controls or only layer controls or both sets of controls at the same time.

But too, there’s an awful lot of confusion over how to actually use these ProShow features.  This tutorial isn’t meant to represent a comprehensive treatment of text layers. However, if you master the concepts presented in this tutorial, you will have know how to effectively use text layers in your show. You will not need to guess about how to do something, you will know how to do it or at least have a very good idea on how to proceed.
