Been having a play in HitFilm Express (recently updated to v9)
Edit: Starter pack purchased and installed (<£9)
Set up a new composite project at 1080p
Corn jpg imported
Clouds effect applied and coloured, maybe not the best choice of colour yet.
Cartoon effect applied to corn.
midmarsh..... text on a new layer
Heat distortion and emboss effects applied.
(The first time I've experimented using key frames to change effects with time)
Followed by Neon Glow, Diffuse and Light Flare effects.
Most of the effects have many different adjustments which can be made.
Lots of experimenting needed to see what each did.
Result saved as a video file.
Temporary title made in ArtText 3 on a green background.
Saved as a jpg.
Both imported in iMovie.
Blended using green screen.
Title text made to move using Ken Burns effect panning from a blank space to the text.
Saved as a video file (no sound)
With this set up it is easy to make a new title in ArtText 3 and replace the temporary one.
As yet I haven't managed to eliminate the small green dot.
