Hi all, looking for a little assistance for a project. I'd like to apply a VFX (screen shake) to just affect the overlaying text of the video, leaving the video alone. I've checked the routing and can't seem to have much pleasure there (see attached)
Can anyone help?

Hello,

Disconnecting the input of the titles effect and merging both chains with a Blend would be one whay.

While testing it, I detected that the version I have here isn't the version downloadable on the forum. My version sets the alpha channel to 1.0 for all pixels, which is solid black and hides the background. The downloadable version however preserves it, thanks to jwrl.

That shows how it should be connected to shake the text, but not the background:

I also strongly recommend using the Enhanced blend effect instead of the Lightworks blend if you use hugly's suggestion. Using the Lightworks blend effect in this way changes the appearance of the title effect. "Enhanced blend" will correct that. The routing is almost identical, and will look like this:

You just set the "Enhanced blend" effect's source to "Crawl/Roll/Title/Image key" and the blend mode to "Normal".
