Small selection of animation options for Vegas titles

Vladimir-Maslov wrote on 2/2/2023, 12:40 PM

Hello.

Is it possible to make an animation for the titles, like in this video?

Maybe with third party plugins?

In general, in my opinion, in Vegas there is an extremely lack of options for animation of titles, it would be great to see new options in the next updates.

Thank you!

Did you try the Mediagenerator Titles &Text or ProTyp titler with all its possibilities?

I'll just about guarantee the easiest and highest quality "titler" for Vegas is Affinity Photo, Photoshop or a similiar program that can create PSD files with layers. Bring alpha png's into Vegas as tracks and apply FX and transitions to your hearts desire. It's simple. You can easily adjust timing and other actions. I have yet to find a title program that comes close. You're only limited by your creativity and the quality can't be beat.

@Vladimir-Maslov Use the ProType Titler. It allows you to make animations like the one you showed.

Enable in: Options>Preferences>Deprecated Features>Enable ProType Titler

Here is a video tutorial about the tool.

Could you show some examples of text animations created with this workflow?

Elynde wrote on 2/3/2023, 12:10 AM

Yep. Titler Pro will do it. So will Vegas with Title Preset 4, two text layers, the layer dimensionality glow effect, and masking. Maybe a lens flare keyframed to the mask motion....

It is also possible in Vegas Effects using the String Fade Behavior, a duplicate text layer, super glow, and keyframed masks (this is all way easier than it sounds).

I give this as my alternative Listing.

1 - NewBlueTitler Pro5, but not, I repeat, no higher than NBTP5.

Pros: Works inside VP; Realtime previewing within the GUI. Has immense capabilities

Cons: None that I can think of? Other than NB's development program "appears" to be with "Live". Pity . . .

2 - BORIS Title Studio

Pros: As part of the BORIS Ranch, it can supply integration with BORIS FXs - Nice!

Cons: In my opinion, not there, yet, in being User Friendly. Hey, its BORIS!

3 - VP Text.

Pros: Simple easy Quick 'n Dirty?

Cons: Not very feature-rich.

4 - ProTypeTitler

Pros: Has an undying following amongst us here, who will be generous with their expertise and ingenuity.

Cons: Promised much, but, for me, fell at the last hurdle with the timings of certain Controls. Also, development hasn't been resurrected, which signed the death knell for PTT.

And, "Food for thought . . . . "

@monoparadox - Never thought about PSD Layers for Text. I've only been using this for importing "shapes".

Pros: If you're using this working flow anyway, give it a go, and slot it into your work. You will be able to slip n slide stuff as you want - almost 😉.

Cons: If you want to adjust the Text Plates you've gotta get back to the Plate in your Graphic editor. Which may be what @3POINT wishes to "appreciate".

Going back to @Vladimir-Maslov enquiry: What is it you really, really wish to do?

Thank you!
I'll try to study BORIS Title Studio.

It is necessary for work, video clips with such animation of titles, as I indicated in the title, collect more views.

Since I make 5 videos a day, I need a friendly interface and the ability to create templates.

I'm sure BORIS will do.

If you want to see something a little different, and is only a standalone titler, google BluffTitler.

Vegas does need a new updated built in title editor. People should not have to depend on 3rd party software to do basic things that consumer editing software does easily.

Lay out your title components using layers in your graphics program. Once you get individual elements of your title on layers ie. text and/or graphics, then import it into Vegas as a PSD with layers, You can apply any of your effects or transitions to individual layers/elements. Move them around, set lengths, etc. It's just basic compositing. Plus, you can add other elements directly from Vegas such as graphics, video, etc. if you want to. I would venture for most of you working in Vegas it's more intuitive to construct a complex title using basic Vegas features with this method than the complexity of many "advanced" title programs. My experience is they're all clunky. I've wasted more time setting keyframes and trying to get the right effect just to have it all crash down or have some quirky thing happen. Also, you can use individual "titles" as nested files to keep things neat and organized. It's also good in developing your Vegas skills and learning the power compositing.
