Visual effects software company NewBlue has released the fourth iteration of its powerful, resolution-independent titling plug-in, Titler Pro, featuring workflow enhancements and improved compatibility.
Filmmakers and producers are always looking for ways to set their creations apart from the pack. Obviously, a great title sequence isn't a substitute for writing, producing, direction, cinematography, sound, lighting, editing and all the other disciplines that make up a production. However, high quality titles, lower thirds and credits can give videos a polished, professional sheen and we should probably spend more time considering the quality of our titling.
Or, perhaps we should spend less time on our titles. For those that need a fast, robust and dynamic 2D and 3D titling solution, there's Titler Pro 4 from effects software company NewBlue. Titler Pro comes equipped with built-in styles, templates, a drag-and-drop interface and a QuickEdit interface, giving users the ability to "design epic titles in just 30 seconds." It's compatible with most major NLE platforms, including Premiere, Final Cut Pro X, Avid Media Composer, DaVinci Resolve, Edius and Vegas, so it will more than likely play nicely with your editor of choice. Titler Pro also works as a standalone program, although I would suspect that most would opt to use it within an editor.
Titler Pro 4, like the previous version, is completely resolution-independent, so it's suitable for timelines above 4K resolution. NewBlue touts 24 new features in Titler Pro 4, including PSD import (which is huge for anyone who creates graphic elements in Photoshop), OpenFX integration (meaning support for plug-ins like GenArt and HitFilm), title caching (improving workflow speed) and workspace optimizations.
According to the press release, Titler Pro 4 is available now at the following price points:
- Titler Pro 4 ($299), which includes the Titler Pro 4 plugin with a base of 40 design templates.
- Titler Pro 4 Elite ($399), which includes Titler Pro 4, 40 base design templates, 40 styles from the Classics Collection and 12 lower thirds from the GraphPax collection.
- TItler Pro 4 Ultimate ($499), which includes Titler Pro 4, 40 base design templates, 80 styles from the Classics and Reflections collections and 36 lower thirds from the OnAir, PrimeTime and GraphPax Collections.
A visit to the NewBlue site reveals that Titler Pro 4 is on sale for a limited time (and for first time buyers only). Through July 31, the company is knocking $50 off the above package prices. So if you're in the market for a new titling tool or you're investigating ways to give your videos a little extra pro 'oomph', Titler Pro 4 from NewBlue may be the solution for you.
