    Also, if they allow subframe (or sample based) editing in Media Composer, then we can truly roundtrip to Protools.

    Re: Stuff I wish they'd fix

    I read thru the entire thread and maybe I missed it but, I'll go ahead and mention it just in case. This is not a feature request but a needed fix. For many years the Title Tool as been unable to create a title EXACTLY where it's created within the tool. What I mean is if you create a simple title and then try to go into Title Tool and create the same title in a different color, for example. Notice that no matter what you do the two titles don't line up exactly. In other words the second title doesn't completely cover the first title, but just in the new color, because there is an offset. And that offset can be anywhere from almost nothing to a substaintial number of pixels, creating a kind of drop shadow. The shift can be both vertical and horizontal.

    So to boil it down, make the title tool accurate, within itself.

    Avid has abandoned the title tool. They expect you to use the New Blue titler. :-(

    Re: Stuff I wish they'd fix

    In spite of repeated requests, there are a number of Avid components that have not been updated or fixed in 10-20 years.  The Title Tool is one of them.  I would suggest looking at the free version of NewBlue that Avid provides -- or the latest paid version that is available on the NewBlue website.

    Re: Stuff I wish they'd fix

    Thanks Terry, I know they've added in Blue Titler, but I didn't know that the title tool was kaput. I've been stuck back on MC v5.0.3 version for a while because of a long term feature doc (with a lot of script sync, something else that's gone kaput). I am finally going to be upgrading to MC v8.4.1 very soon so I'll get to see what's what, but seeing title tool abandoned is somewhat bitter sweet.

    With regard to Blue Titler, I'm going to do just that.

    Re: Stuff I wish they'd fix

    The title tool is (was?) an excellet tool for nitty gritty dirty titles, and easy to use, if they pull it off I'll miss it, whoever is in need of a fully featured titler will switch to something else with no regrets. Funny that Marquee is abandoware as well, or not?

    Re: Stuff I wish they'd fix

    The big plus with the Title tool is it's fast. Realtime and even if you render it's quick.

    All the 3rd party solutions take longer to launch, longer to Render (NB 1 & 2 where massively longer render times)

    And the biggest issue is support 5 years plus down the line.

    I can still open old projects and modify a title. Thats a big plus.

    For TV post work we find Title tool is perfect most of the time (could be almost all of the time with some overdue tweaks) If we need 3D or flash effect we go off to After effects.

    I'd love the title tool to be re-integrated and improved. So would many many Avid users.

    Re: Stuff I wish they'd fix

    I agree with Pat. So do most editors I know. But this has been unsuccesfully pushed in front of Avid extensively and I think it might even be high up there on the ACA request list. As of now, beside the issues that already exist with title tool, it doesn't do anything beyond HD. 

    It's a shame as the tight integration and backward compatability have made it an idnustry standard. Almost all the shows that we finish use the the title tool.

    What was the explanation to the ACA on this ?

    Hmmm.  Gonna have to check that out!

     

    It looks like a Media Composer version is in the works.
