Bold Type Project!

Sometimes you need to create a title that feels IMPORTANT without making it too flashy! One way to do that is with a texture and a cinematic fade! Usually a simple opacity fade leaves graphics looking washed out, but by color correcting the fade out, you can add color and contrast to the fade! I also used CC glass to give the text a little bit of bump!

So right, I always saw opacity as being too simple to really use. The color correcting and changes that on the fade is a great idea that I will certainly be using from now on. Thanks!

    I'd like that too! I hate that we can't study the projects in detail anymore! You miss a lot of things when you're trying to replicate things from a tutorial

You’re a generous guy, I dig that. Thank you.
My favorite part with these tutorials is when I’m following along, doing “exactly” the same thing as what I’m seeing being demonstrated and it looks nothing like yours. I’ll spend an inordinate amount of time tweaking and changing things - trying to recreate what I’m seeing - and in the process learning even more than I anticipated.

It’s a great setup and I really appreciate what I’ve learned from you and your team.
