One line split into 2 or more colours

Postby hun_wun_gal » Thu Jan 15, 2009 12:37 am

Sorry if this has been asked before, i was curious how do people split lines into a number of colours. For example Top half is one colour and the bottom half of the whole line is another colour.

I'm using Aegisub.

Thanks in advance. :cheers:

For example if your text is natural black, and you had the following subs

"Here you want it black,
here you want it grey"

First of all, you will have to put in the line break yourself if it's not there already. Then you add the tag. So your final result will be, looking at aegisub

"Here you want it black,\N{\c&H888888&}here you want it grey"

Where the "\N" is for a hard line break, and the {\c&H888888&} is for the tag to change the colors. The "888888" is a hex representation of the color, in bbggrr (so NOT the same as the ones you use for webpages). You can find the whole color code (including to two ampersand signs) by trying to change the color of a style in aegisub.

Hope this helped.

And if you mean the same text having two+ colours, you need as many lines as you want colours, \clip, \pos and of course colour changes for \1a, \3a or \4a depending on what you wanna change (fill, outline, shadow).

Example:

Me too, I'm using aegisub and I've difficulties splitting the same text with 2 different colours.

Thanks sungie.. the above example that you've posted "Thank you very much"... How did you do that?

I've another question, how do I zoom in/out the text i.e. starting from big and gradually the text goes smaller or from small and gradually become bigger.

Thanks for helping :salut:

{\pos(320,469)}Thank you very much!
{\pos(320,469)\clip(210,457,442,476)}Thank you very much!

And they have different styles. Of course you can type colour settings to the lines as well.

Adjust fscx<value> and fscy<value>. X obviously being width and y height. Value in percent.

So if you for example want the word to be twice as big as normally first, then go to normal size and then grow again, the line could be like:
{\fscx200\fscy200\t($start,$mid,\fscx100\fscy100)\t($mid,$end,\fscx200\fscy200)}

You can also do it by using layers. The line that has clipping must be on the top, of course. In this case positioning is not needed.

You'd have to use some clippings and different layers if you want colors for teh same text
