They call it “A Titler for the Professional Editor’s Schedule.”
NewBlue, Inc. is a software developer that had a booth in the South Hall’s plug-in pavilion. They were showing their NewBlue Titler, a dedicated title creation and animation tool that resides in most all the major NLEs. It has a clean, simple interface that didn’t look like it breaks any new ground as far as design goes but that may be okay if you’ve got the need to create and animate your titles in a hurry … which many of us do.
NewBlue Titler Pro was being demonstrated in Adobe Premiere Pro. Its compatability with Mac was one of the company’s announcements at the NAB show. It installs as a new menu item under PPro’s New submenu. It’ll be a generator in Final Cut Pro 7 and X and presumably an effect in Avid Media Composer’s Effect Palette.
After launching NewBlue Titler Pro you’ll be presented with an interface that includes all the usual suspects when it comes to creating titles: font choices, styles, sizes, attributes, all the things you’d expect in a titling tool. The left side is for tweaking any number of attributes, the right is a viewer and there’s a timeline at the bottom.
The presence of a timeline means animation! NewBlue Titler Pro is much more than just for static titles so animation can take place right in the Titler Pro interface. I mentioned before that the Titler Pro interface doesn’t break any new ground but that’s probably okay as an editor will feel right at home in NewBlue Titler Pro. It feels much more advanced than something like Boris Graffiti, that we used for so long in Final Cut Pro, but not near as complex and confusing as Avid’s Marquee. There’s a lot of presets as well and if you read over the feature list you’ll see that there’s a lot to this $299 tool. All the animation presets are fully customizable as well. read more...
