REVIEW – TITLER PRO 5 FROM NEWBLUEFX
A few hiccups doesn’t stop this from being an awesome titling app!As a Media Composer editor, I’ve been exposed to Titler Pro for a while now. When Avid added the ability to work in larger than HD projects, they licensed Titler Pro 2/2.5 to perpetual/subscription editors, as the Title Tool and Marquee Tool are not supported in larger than HD projects. At the time that Titler Pro 2 was released, it was a cool tool to use to create animated 2D and 3D titles inside of Media Composer. Looking at it today, it’s showing it’s age, and many editors might not be willing to give the latest version of Titler Pro a try (version 5). In this article, I want to take an in-depth look at Titler Pro 5 (TP5), and show you why it’s a product that you need to put back on your radar. Now, in this article I’ll be addressing more the Media Composer version of the plug-in, but keep in mind that the plug-in is supported in Magix Vegas, Resolve, Premiere, After Effects FCPX HitFilm, EDIUS as well as a standalone version you can use outside of the NLE’s.
WHICH VERSION IS RIGHT FOR YOU?Titler Pro 5 comes in three different flavours, but before I move on and talk about the different editions, I want to talk about the other effects packages across the NewBlueFX (NBFX) product line. Now, you’re probably wondering why I would even bring this up in a review of TP5, and there is a simple reason for it. NewBlueFX has added the capability to add any of the effects and transitions product lines directly into TP5, meaning that you can now have effects like glows, etc right inside of TP5, which is a very cool feature. The more effects packages that are added by NBFX, the “bigger” TP5 can get! Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, let’s talk about the packages.
