Bring your movie titles to life with ready-to-use and customizable motion titles. Motion title templates are preloaded with animated graphics, stylized text, and background styles.
 

While Classic Titles are also customizable, Motion Titles provide you with the convenience of customizable templates. These templates come with popular predefined layouts and components that you would otherwise need to create individually.
 

The titles and text options that are available from the action bar are now categorized as Classic Titles and Motion Titles, for easy access. Each motion title template may include one or more text and graphic components and a background component that can all be customized to your liking.

Note:

Resize control handles for text or graphics are not displayed, if dragged outside the monitor area in Motion Title edit mode.
