The "Intro – Cutout Line" has an effectful animation with a connected "swipe" move that reveals the Title and the Description (if you use it). If you don't use the Description field, the Title will instead be underlined.
The Description text is a cutout on a solid plate, so the background is visible through the lettering, for a cool effect.
This intro is really useful when it perhaps is used with a short player slide for one second or so before it starts, to let movie start playing and then you set the Tint and Monochrome to fade in and out and keep playing the background asset into the slide after as well. Check the examples below to see this in action.
Behavior and usage
The Title field holds the usual 40 characters. Only the Huge text option is available on this slide. But the Title has an automatic scaling function that scales text to almost full width in the Square and Portrait format. So you can create some impactful slides with this. Check the example movie above for a few different versions.
The Description holds 20 characters, so it's not for the wordiest of subtitles. This is because we want it to hold it's single line correctly.
The default styling is that the Tint is on, in Primary color and with a 65% opacity. It also sets Monochrome to on.
Credit text is derived from the credit field in the asset browser. Since all assets in Story Engine are their own 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.
