I got a notification today to say there was an update to this program I have installed the update but have not used it yet. I really could not get on with this add on as it was causing me a lot of problems. Has anybody got any feedback on the update please? cheers John
The update opens and renders much, much faster. The playback of older projects is a little odd as it loops weird portions of the title, but it scrubs clean and renders great. Plus, it now exports to .png sequences, which future-proofs us against the depreciation of .mov formats in Vegas.
Interesting. No update shows as available for me for TotalFX 7, either on the New Blue account pages, nor on the New BlueFX app manager. What version of TotalFX shows in your App Manager? Mine reports 7.8.230213 (and was last updated back in November of last year, with nothing later showing on the New Blue website). Titler Pro itself reports the same version number
I do have a query out with New Blue support for further info
TotalFX 7 was not updated. That has been replaced with TotalFX 360 which was updated. If you have a standalone Titler Pro 7 Basic/Ultimate, that was updated. "Titler Pro for VEGAS" has not been updated at this time.
I installed the TP7 update in VP21 and found it to be a significant improvement with faster rendering times. An old project with multiple titles seemed to work fine. In the past the main weakness was integration into Vegas and using multiple titles was slow and often crashed. For some time now I have only used TP7 to create animated title backgrounds rendered out as movies. I even made an animated third background which I then repeated and overlayed animated text made in VP21 Titles & Text! Fingers crossed for this new update on the next project.
I contacted support and have several emails with them about how the later AMD drivers and TP7 would not work together. I was informed that they knew about this issue and was sent a beta of TotalFX 360 to see if that solved the problem. It did. I also asked about preview playback of the video, and that too, they were working on.
But, 360 that I was sent was a trial version which has expired. So, I am once again left with the same problems as before.... I can't use any of AMD's later drivers. TP7 would just stall when loading the Library and give me the 'white screen of death'.
Yeah, this is why I am disappointed. For a substantial period of time we have been told that the issues with TP7 were known, were being worked on and would be fixed - only for the fix to be released in a form I can't use. Or, at least, not without a substantial reinvestment.
Aha, and now NewBlue support have literally just responded to my query about this with "we are working on an upgrade campaign for TotalFX 7 users to upgrade to Titler Pro 7 for $59.99" - so offer may not exist just yet, but will do soon, hopefully.
I found this latest version a lot better. In the previous version, I couldn't even use it...it would hang and crash within Vegas 21....the latest update doesn't crash anymore for me. Render is faster. The library templates are beginning to look a little chessy (somewhat out dated).
