Credits don't always have to be black-and-white! Adding color splashes to your credits can be a great choice. Or, you might want to just dim those white letters to a lighter shade of grey.
How to Change Font Color
In your project's Fonts section, pick the style you want to edit, then click on the font color square to bring up a color picker widget. You an see the color changes in real time. The value is stored as a 6-digit hexadecimal number—for example, white is #ffffff and red is #ff0000.
RGB, HSL, Hex — what do they mean?
These are different color models. The good news is that you don't need to understand exactly how they work. The graphical color picker widget will handle it for you.
If you're working with a designer, they will likely give you exact color values. In this case, you'll want to directly key in these numerical values. Your designer should be giving you color values in one of these three formats:
- RGB: stores three separate numbers between 0 and 255; one each for Red, Green, and Blue.
- HEX or Hexadecimal: does the same thing as RGB, but uses 16 digits instead of 10.
- HSL: stands for Hue, Saturation, and Luminance. The first value is an integer between 0 and 255. The latter two values are stored as a percentage between 0 and 100.
