Want to add shapes in your titles and motion graphics?
Since the Resolve 17 upgrade, there are some great shape tools available in Fusion.
Shapes are vector-based tools that are easy to manipulate for any 2 motion graphic needs you have.
In this video Casey Faris will teach you about:
- Finding the Shape nodes
- Overview of Shape Render and Merge
- Using Shape Transform
- Duplicating Shapes
- Placing Shapes on a grid
- Expanding and contracting shapes
- Turning a solid shape into an outline
- Adding a jitter effect to Shapes
- Boolean controls with Shapes
- Making a diagram with Shapes
- Example Title with Shapes
And that’s just the beginning! Once you’ve got a handle on using these shape tools… you can animate, overlay, combine, use them as masks, and much more! You’re only limited by your imagination.
