Playing around with some design ideas and automation for creating the lower thirds and titling.
The design is done in Inkscape. A bash script modifies the template with the appropriate text, outputs the individual frames via Inkscape's CLI, and then avconv strings them together into the final animation. ImageMagick is used for creating key channel.
I am currently using Kdenlive as my editor.
It also helps that Mattie shared such great toughs with us.
