We all know that you have create a title, hit the + sign to add it to the list.
These of course can then be selected as lower third titles, etc.

BUT is there a way to do the same thing but with a image background ?

I want to have a list of bullet points but with an image behind each bullet.
I have struggled (@#^#%^%^) with pages, hidden, reveals, etc and got no where.
It became so complicated that it was not worth it.

So, can you have a list of titles with different backgrounds or images ?
Keep in mind these are One Underneath each other not On top of each.

If a text field is blank then that Title is blank. But there is no way to hide an image in the Title input.

i.e.

Point1.text
Image1.Source
Point2.text
Point3.Source

You are correct that you cannot "hide" and Image field, but if you create and save a completely blank/transparent picture or image file (in Photoshop for example) and add that as your Image.Source it will effectively be "gone" from the graphic.


I hope that helps.

Ice clever idea, I like it.

So just so I understand what you are suggesting...
1. In the Title Editor, select the image I want to hide, browse to a blank image and select.
2. Setup first bullet with background and Add to the titles list with the +
3. Repeat for the next bullet I want to reveal but browse to the Actual graphic and select and add it as the next title with the +

Do I have it right ?

Again, very clever and I love it when we are able to solve a problem using ideas like this.

I will give this a try.

Thanks,

Lee
