  • Drop shadow for .png

    Using EDIUS 5.5, I have several .pgn logos over video. Can't find a way in 3D-PIP to create a drop shadow. The shadow only appears around the invisible page the logo is on, not on the logo itself.
    What's the trick?

    There is no trick I have found. NewBlueFX has a drop shadow that works in one of their effects offerings.

    Another option would be to just add the drop shadow in photoshop before exporting. Of course if you are going to animate the logo to make it spin that may not be the best option.

        Just use Quicktitler and import the logo there. All the nice things like border and shadow will work.

          Exactly, this can be done with any Titler...

          * Quick Titler If the image is inserted, turn on any preset within it and change the file *.png, in question as shown here:



          * Then you adjust the parameters of the shadow and blur ideal for logo, as shown here:



          * Because of this you apply 3DPinP and turns if you want.

            Great idea....that method had not crossed my mind before. Learn something new everyday.

            And you could rotate it with the layouter keyframes and don't need the 3dPnP.

              Make sure that you put your "title" on a Video track and not in a Title track to apply your 3D PiP.

                Inscriber does not "see" any of the logos in either IMPORT or BACKGROUND. The file locations where the logos are is "empty" according to Inscriber.
                Is there some function I am not seeing or do I need to covert to EDIUS in order to get Inscriber to "see" them?
