August Challenge - Kinetic Typography


#1

OK, so the text layer in Synfig has some issues. Let’s see if we can wring out some bugs, or come up with some neat workarounds to them…
Kinetic Typography is the animation of text to the words of a soundtrack from a movie, song, etc, using the motion size, style of the text to convey the emotions of the speaker(s). cs.cmu.edu/~johnny/kt/
If you don’t know what I’m talking about, take a look at these examples.

So pick your favourite quotes, and start typing!

I know it’s not only Kinetic Typography but it was to fun playing with that character.
I’m sure you’ll forgive me.

Impressive work madxav!

Besides the great drawing/animation you did I can notice the bug of text scrolling. It is almost impossible to produce a smooth slow text scroll (down to up). Did anyone noticed that?
