The "Fadetext" slide lets you have the same amount of main text as the "Simple slide," but with "Fadetext" you can place the text in different positions on the slide and also get different alignment depending on the position. (More on that below.)
The text animation is not a write-on as with "Simple slide" but instead a fade in of the whole text block. This makes it a bit more subtle, and with clever use of the different text positions, you can create quite a bit of variation in your movie.
NOTE: Text position and alignment is not previewed in the editor at the moment, all text will appear to be center/center/centered.
Behavior and usage
The "Message" field holds 100 characters in "Large" text that defaults to theme color "White." This can be changed on each slide, of course.
The placement options are combinations of x- (left, center, right) and y-positions (top, center, bottom). The alignment of the text also follows x-position: Left is left-aligned, center is center-aligned and right is right-aligned.
When using the top right position, the text will adjust its position to whether or not you have a logo on the slide and the same goes for the top left position that will adjust itself to whether or not you are using the segment number on the slide.
The styling defaults to a non-fade tint that uses theme color "Darken" at an opacity of 65%. That can be changed under "Main asset styling."
Credit text is derived from the credit field in the asset browser. Since all assets in Story Engine are their instance, you could use the credit field for additional information as well, such as a source reference or other. This field is not directly editable from the storyboard view. Instead, you access it through the asset browser’s detail view. You can turn off the credit text altogether from the storyboard side pane if you wish.
