> Once you get used to it, you can download any of the examples and change the text to be your own
Where can you donwload the examples? I just got Bluff las month - Find it very powerful but very complex (lots of settings) and would love to see how they do some of the stuff they show on the examples page.
Actually, I'm finding that utilizing the tools in Vegas with a plug-in like Spicemaster can do some pretty amazing stuff. Using the existing fx/transitions/3d compositing and media generators might amaze you with some experimentation.
Plus, I find the knowledge and practice gained from using the tools pays off when applied to other aspects of my production.
Don't give up on Bluff Titler so easily. You can create stand-alone titles or overlay titles with transparency. I often compose them with a music bed, which I load as a layer in Bluff Titler, then export the title as an uncompressed file and add the original music bed back to it.
It's an awesome tool that can tempt you to overdue effects, etc., but just for motion and 3D in simple titles it's great.
You can also load a video layer into Bluff, then compose the title over that.
It's slightly complicated at first but once you accustom yourself to all the parameters and how to adjust them it gets easier and easier.
