Instantly Add Stylish Text Treatments to Your Edit with the Fitness 01 Style Kit

I always love it when a new type of element comes along in one of the Style Kits, and in the Fitness Style Kit, that new element comes in the form of Word Art.  



You’ll always hear me say the same things over and over again.  Rampant Design thinks of things that I need before I even know that I need them, and the Word Art category is, again, one of those exact situations.  


The biggest problem with cutting videos, is that when you want to do some stylish text treatments, it can take a long time to not only get the text looking the way you want, but then figuring out how you’re going to get in a actually do something, anything, stylish with it.  Well, as we all know, that’s where our Fitness Style Kit elements come into play.  What struck me right off the bat after downloading is that there’s a staggering 38 different Word Art elements to work with.  That plus all the other elements in the Animated Elements, Animated Mattes, Light Effects and Transitions element groups.  What’s great about these elements is that they work great as just standard white text on whatever background you’re working with but, much like most of the other elements that Rampant Design Tools offers, they come standard with an Alpha Channel, meaning they’re instantly drag and droppable no matter which NLE or compositing application you’re working with  What I also like to do is to have a few happening on screen in different places to change it up and keep it fresh.  In most cases, you brain can interpret that information, whether you actually read it right away or now, so subliminally you can get the message across, by keeping it stylish along the way.  This is another Style Kit where the unique elements, Word Art specifically, can transition over into other edit types like Sports, very easily!  Don’t forget you can check out the Fitness Style Kit, plus all the other Style Kits that Rampant offers at
