You might have seen so many Vlogs, Movie Scenes, and other videos on Platforms like Netflix and Youtube that have text that goes behind an object. Isn't it so fantastic and remarkable? This cool text behind an object makes the scene more lively, and it feels like the text was already there while filming the scene. But actually, it is not. These filmmakers and video editors use different video editing tools to get this kind of effect in their movies and videos.

These kinds of effects are created to increase the viewers' engagement and interest to keep them watching the video without being bored. It is a great way to grasp your audience's attention.

If you love this kind of effect, like me, and want to use it in your videos to make your videos stunning and engaging, follow this step-by-step guide to creating an excellent Text behind an Object scene using Filmora X. There are two parts of this guide:

Part 1: Recording of an object that can be used in front of the text

For this wondrous text behind an Object Effect, there should be a visible and unique object used in front of the text. To get perfect results, try to reflect the following instructions:

  • Focus the Object: For high-quality results, it is essential to record the video while focusing on the main object. You can select any object. It can be a human, a building, an animal, or any plant and tree. This rule applies to all these objects.
  • Keep your object at the center: The main object should be placed at the center of the frame to get the required outcomes. An object that is placed at the center can make this effect more deliberate.

Once you have successfully recorded the video, keeping the above points in mind, you are good to go to the next and most crucial part of this Guide to Put text behind an Object, which is editing the recorded video using Filmora X.

Part 2: Editing the video to put text behind that object using Filmora X

Editing the Recorded Video to put text behind an Object using Filmora X: A Step by Step Guide

After recording the object, the actual task is to add the text behind that recorded object. We have made this complex process easy with the help of a step-by-step guide using screenshots to make it clear for you. This guide will help you keep the text behind the object from importing the footage to exporting the final results.

Step 1: The first step to putting text Behind an Object is to import the video of that object which was recorded following all the above-stated guidelines, by going to 'File > Import Media > Import Media Files' or click on the empty space on the left side of the screen.text-behind-objects1

Step 2: After dragging that imported video into the Project Timeline, or clicking on the "+" sign on the video, go to the "Titles" and select any title that best suits you. In my case, I have selected the "Default Title." Now add this title to the Project Timeline by dragging it or by clicking on the "+" sign of the title.text-behind-objects2

Step 3: To rename the title, change its font style, size, and color, and to add animation to it, double click on the title. A Screen will pop-up. Click "Advanced" on that screen.text-behind-objects3

Step 4: This will allow you to play with the title according to your requirements. You change the title, font color, size, style, and more. In my case, I am renaming the title as FILMORA, keeping fonts as Impact, size as 125, and keeping the default white color. But you change it according to your requirements that best match your video.

Step 5: On the upper left corner of this advanced settings, click on "Animation," select "Right Roll" animation and Click "Ok." It will make your text move from left to right.

Step 6: Now, we have to make a sandwich of the video and title. Go to the "Media" again and drag the video again over the title.text-behind-objects6

Step 7: Now, we have to mask the upper video by going to "Effects," go to the "Utility" category and drag the "Image Mask" effect and drop it on the upper video. It will help us select and Mask only a particular part of the video that we want in front of our text.text-behind-objects7

Step 8: In the project timeline, disable Show Track for the lower video and text by clicking the Eye symbol at the left of the project timeline. It will help us to work on the upper video without disturbing and messing with these two.text-behind-objects8

Step 9: Double click on the video on the top to open the settings. Scroll down to "Video Effects" and select any Preset Mask that best suits your object. In my case, I am setting a circle to visible only the head. Adjust all the parameters, X, Y Width, Height, and Feather, to mask the object perfectly. These parameters will help you get a perfect fit. Use Feather to increase its smoothness. When you think it fits with the object, click on "ok." Now, you can enable the Show Track of both title and bottom video. text-behind-objects9

Step 10: If you want to increase or decrease the speed of text that moves behind your object, right-click the Title track and select "Duration." text-behind-objects10
