png image sequence white box behind text

Hy when I render a png sequence in videoscribe and put it as transparent layer in premiere pro I get a light white box behind the text (see Image 1). I opened a png image in photoshop and picked the white box with the magic wand tool you can see in Image 2. Is this a videoscribe bug? It is to complicated to edit allthe images in photoshop.

Yes I have heard similar problems mention before. Usually the problem is just a low opacity rectangle appearing behind the text in videoscribe but it makes sense that it would also show up in the PNG  images.

I'm afraid I don't know of a simple fix. If you want to fix all of the PNGs in photoshop you can make something called an action that memorizes the adjustments you make to a single image then performs the same adjustments on a whole folder full of images. It's too much for me to explain here but you can google it for lots of guides and videos.

I would probably make an SVG image out of the text. Here is a new guide I've made that hopefully explains the process clearly : Make Any Font, Text or Equation Draw Well (2016)

it may seem long and complicated but its really only 4 steps:
1) TYPE TEXT
2) CONVERT TEXT TO OUTLINES
3) CREATE "REVEAL STROKES" (this part can be time consuming if you want to be precise about your reveals)
4) SAVE WITH CORRECT SETTINGS

Hope that helps,

Hy Mike thank you for this guide, I will try this out. For now I fixed the problem by putting a copy of the layer on top of the textanimation layer and dropping a track matte key on it, this works fine, no more white boxes.

 

ohhh good solution!

 

Just so you guys are aware this is logged as a bug with the VideoScribe development team (ref #VS-3523) and I have linked this forum to that as well so we can drop an update here as and when it's fixed
