    Hey everyone. As some of you know, I am editing the videos the SSRG crew made at RWX last summer. In one of the videos we introduce the team members to the audience. I'd like to show a graphic with the person's name / alias in some Sonic-y marquee. Unfortunately, I am at a lost what to do here. Does anyone have any suggestions or ideas which I can draw inspiration from?

    Below is a sample I whipped up quickly to give you an idea of what I mean.

    could always do something like the different title cards (whipped up in like a minute as a rough idea)

  3. Lyrica's idea is great! My suggestion was going to be a ribbon like on the Sonic title screens that pulls apart from the center to show the name, holds for a moment, then folds back into itself.

    Lyrica's suggestion would be pretty easy to do in a video editor, in particular the text movement.

    SoNick's is intriguing. I did a quick mock-up for Rlan's name and it looks good, at least for short names/aliases such as "Rlan" and "Saxman". For longer ones such as we "Striker" or mine, it will be harder to fit. I'll toy around with it for a bit and see where I land. I'll see if I can widen the banner.

    Thanks for the suggestions.

    Here is how it will looks using Lyrica's suggestion. (Ignore the "fuzz" in the video resulting from GIF optimizer)

    I think it looks pretty good
