I'm trying out the demo and am pleasantly surprised at the initial output quality I'm seeing.
Question: I understand that you have to use it as an effect if you want to see the background video in the title designer. Is there any possibility though that in the future I will be able to see video if I use a title as a standalone on the timeline? Or is this not possible because of the way Vegas works?
I seem to remember that my NB FX were available in Titler Pro 2 but I can't find them in Titler Pro 3. Is there any way to access NB FX from inside TP3? I updated all my NB FX and TP 3 today but this didn't make them appear in TP 3.
I have successfully added NB FX and transitions to TP3 today. Install TP3 first and then install NB FX afterwards making sure, of course, that Titler Pro is selected in the installation box (it's the bottom selection) for each FX that asks you which platforms you want the FX installed to.
I should add that if you installed the FX first and then TP3, you shouldn't need to uninstall anything. Just reinstall the FX again and TP3 should capture them.
Marc, when used as an effect, Vegas sends the video to be affected to the effect. When applied as a generated media, Vegas does not send any background video to the plugin so I don't think that will change in the future.
If you are not seeing the NewBlue effects in Titler Pro 3, just reinstall the NewBlue effects and make sure "Titler Pro" is also chosen as one of the target applications along with the "Sony Vegas OpenFX 64-bit" option.
Just to clarify, using an Empty Event will not allow it to show the background video in the Titler Pro preview as the background is "Empty". To see background preview on the Titler Pro preview screen requires it to be used as an effect on the video event.
