The two 3rd party titlers I've used for many years are:

NewBlueFX Titler Pro - https://newbluefx.com/products/titling/titler-pro/ - an update for this product was very recently released ...

... and:

BorisFX's Title Studio - https://borisfx.com/products/title-studio/?collection=continuum-premium-filters&product=continuum-filter-title-studio - which can be purchased as a single Premium Unit, as part of the 3D Objects Unit, or as part of the full Continuum package as a purchase or subscription.

There are trial versions available of both Titler Pro and Title Studio.

Others on the forum will no doubt be able to advise about other titlers with which they have experience.

Frankly, I find most titling programs cumbersome. The best and easiest? A good graphics program like Affinity or Photoshop. Export as layers and composite on your timeline or as a nested project. Use your transitions and effects from Vegas. Fast, easy to adjust, and you know exactly what everything is doing timewise and it's easily adjustable. Just my .02 cents worth.

Another big plus, the better you get at it, the better you get at everything else you do on the timeline.

@monoparadox - Best statement yet, and of course holds for many more too.

@Dexcon I looked at both of these programs you pointed out. They may prove useful in the future. Right now, I am just looking for some sort of text that is more elegant than Vegas Pro 17 offers. I wonder if such a plugin exists without all the 3D fancy stuff. I am putting together a wedding video, not a cartoon or a blockbuster movie. If I am stuck with these options, I may be better off sticking with the "Pacifico" style of text. I am looking for something like this:

Thanks @monoparadox and @Grazie for your input. I may have to do what @monoparadox is suggesting. It's yet another learning curve, but maybe a better option. Maybe someone out there has done a YouTube video showing the basics of what I need to do.

If you are just looking for different font styles, there are plenty available free or for purchase online. You can also sometimes fine disk full of fonts.

@DMT3, Thanks for the suggestion. To anyone else looking for fonts, (Vegas Pro in my case), I found some FREE fonts here: https://www.mediafire.com/file/vw7ki7uvutj3aes/Ultimate_Font_Pack.zip/file

The instructions to install can be found here: (SMASH "Like" to Help out Alex please).

I also found this FREE site: https://www.dafont.com/

The instructions to install are just about the same. You DO need to extract the folder first, THEN right click and select "install". I am using Windows 11. Be sure to restart Vegas or you won't see the fonts.

@DMT3 The FREE fonts are ok. I have a feeling I could do better with PAID fonts. Have you or anyone else any PAID site suggestions?

DMT3 wrote on 11/19/2022, 4:53 PM

@crown2020 I have plenty of fonts from other programs like Photoshop, so I have never purchased any. I have used some free ones from the web.

@crown2020  ... it's now a good time to consider purchasing if you are heading for a purchase option - Black Friday offers are now rampant and likely to be followed shortly thereafter by Cyber Monday offers.

And I'm just the opposite. I can compose a title in Titler Pro while I'm thinking about how to do it in PhotoShop. Plus, if you want an animated title, that's not really a job for a "photo" program.
