Chapter 4. Designing Title Effects
You don't need to search in any particular area for ideas for titles and credits; if you keep your eyes and mind open, ideas can be found everywhere from movie trailers to cereal boxes to the night sky. You can also get ideas by first designing something you might consider conventional and then working to transform it from there. That's what you'll do with the project in this chapter.
One common approach to bringing text onto the screen is to have it fade in as a blur and then come into focus once the text reaches its final destination. You'll use that approach as the basis for the main title in this chapter's project. But you'll customize the technique by using shooting stars and light flashes to introduce each section of the title.
