If you don't already know how to change the text included in the transitions, please refer to "Tip-3 Modify "Texthere" for HFX 169". so I will skip the details about how you edit the transition.

You also know how to modify the envelope parameters as you've already seen in the "Tuto-5 Creating effects".

But in the transition 191-france, if you change the name of a city, it will no longer be in the right place on the map of France. So, it will be necessary to change the city's name and move it to the correct place on the map.

  1. I suggest replacing BORDEAUX by MARSEILLE.

  1. In the FX tree panel, select the plugin Text3D 1 (below BORDEAUX).

  1. In the Display Properties, in paragraph Text3D, replace the BORDEAUX text by MARSEILLE.

  1. The change is made but the city of Marseilles is not in the correct location on the map, so we have to move it.
  1. To move it:
  • 1 - In the FX tree panel, select the BORDEAUX object,
  • 2 - Hide the album (if not already hidden) to display the envelope window,
  • 3 - In the Display Properties, in paragraph position, click one of the X, Y or Z parameters. (This action will reveal the envelope for MARSEILLE highlighted),
  • 4 - Finally, on the second keyframe. move the cursor to the intermediate value of the envelope 38% of the duration of the transition.

Hello Philip,

In general, it is delivered with Pinnacle Studio, but you can maybe obtain it elsewhere, like PriceMinister, Amazon.
I know that it can be used with Adobe Premiere as well. See this tutorial: Tip-7 Installing Hollywood FX Pro V5.1 into Adobe Premiere Pro
