Review: NewBlueFX's Titler Pro

Post by Jonathan Moser

One of the perennial complaints you’ll hear from Avid users concerns the Title Tool in Media Composer. While great for basic slating and lower thirds, as well as crawls and scrolls, it’s basically unchanged since its introduction and has few bells and whistles.

Several years back, Avid introduced Marquee within the title environment — it remains a powerful tool, capable of a tremendous amount of flexibility, animation and graphics work, and it is almost entirely ignored and unused by many Avid editors.

There are other titling apps for Media Composer, but none as dynamic and robust as this new entry by NewBlueFX out of San Diego, a small company with a roster of useful cross-platform products for the most used editing systems.

The app is available for Avid Media Composer/Symphony, Adobe Premiere Pro CS5 & 6, Final Cut Pro 7 & X, Grass Valley Edius 6, and Sony Vegas Pro 10 & 11 as well.


Titler Pro is what Avid’s Title Tool should have been: it’s powerful, flexible, intuitive and fun. It is capable of a wide range of easy-to-implement customizations and effects.
