I don't see any way to create a background color for the text using the watermark filter. That's why I've been using DynamicText, to set background color/alpha and padding. Am I missing something?
Brian,For what you are trying to do, you would be better served by the watermark filter. Here is an example:
>Is it possible to force a line break in the text supplied to the DynamicText filter? For example, let's say I wanted the text overlay to look like this.
>In some environments I could do "Line 1\nLine 2\nLine 3". It appears that DynamicText doesn't recognize the "\n". Is there a line break it does recognize?
melt colour:red -filter watermark:"+line1~line2~line3.txt" composite.progressive=1 producer.align=centre composite.valign=c composite.halign=c producer.fgcolour=blue
The "producer.*" properties are passed to a pango producer and the "composite.*" properties are passed to a composite transition.
