Put Text Behind a Moving Object in DaVinci Resolve


Placing text behind a moving object is very easy to do in DaVinci Resolve using the Color page.

If you have complex movements, then you may want to consider using the Fusion page.

If you haven’t do so, be sure to read this article and watch the video FIRST!

That will go over all the basics you need to know.

After you have everything setup, you’ll need to use the Tracker to track the movement of your object.

If you need to modify the tracking, click FRAME, and manually move the mask where needed.

Once you’re done, you can setup the animation for your text layer and view the results.

In the video we’ll go through all of the steps, and go over the Text+ tool which is more advanced than the standard Text tool.
