Many of users need to insert multi-colour text, however unfortunately, into single
Text media object you cant insert different coloured text. I don’t know why Dev.Team didn’t noticed this simple thing and they haven’t yet to be solved, so we don’t have that availability till date. As a temporary workaround, there could exist several methods, but the following 2 methods are most realistic:
Method 1 (harder)
With METHOD 1, you have to create separate
Text Media elements for each different-coloured phrase. Lets say, you add the first part of text and choose it’s colour. Then, in the timeline, you should add a new video track , above the current track. To do this, right click on the left part of timeline, and click
Insert Video Track, like on this image:
and then insert another
Text Media element (exactly above your existing text ), and make its colour different, and position it as you need (with “PAN/CROP” tool).
Method 2 (flexible)
More advanced and flexible way is to use the special tool: Open
Media Generators tab and insert
That will give you an ability to add text (in black rectangle) and make it multi-colour. You select each phrase, then go to
Style tab in that window, and choose
Fill color as you like. Hope, that is a workaround for your problem.
Method 3 (unkown)
Another way could be to search for plugins/addons which add that feature into Vegas. However, you might try Google for that.
p.s. If you know better solution for recent Vegas versions, please comment.
