Tutorial 6: Images on a Text Frame
Creating Text on a Sequence
One of the advantages of a text frame is the ability to edit the text later, but one limitation is the lack
of options for inserting images directly on the frame. However, there is an option that places an
image on the background layer of the text frame.
This tutorial explains how to:
1. Enter text on a text frame.
2. Import an image.
3. Copy the image to the background layer of the text frame.
Upon completion of this tutorial, the sequence will look similar to the example below:
1. Open the Sequence Designer by clicking Edit in the Venus 7000 Shell.
2. Click File > New. Click the plus sign next to 96x224 or next to the desired sign. Double-click the
Default folder. Type “Text Frame Image” in the File Name text box. Click OK.
3. When a new sequence opens, the first frame is a graphic frame. Click File > Import >
Image/AVI… Navigate to the Bitmaps folder in D:\V7000; double-click the Fish image. The
Import Controls open. For more information on importing, see Tutorial 12. Click OK.
4. When importing an image, it is always placed on a new frame. This results in a blank frame at the
beginning of the sequence. Click the First Frame button followed by the Delete Frame button
. Click Delete Current and click Close.
5. Click the Block tool and draw a rectangle around the
fish image. Click Edit > Copy.
