San Francisco, CA, and Amsterdam, the Netherlands, July 23th, 2007 - Outerspace Software today announced the availability of BluffTitler version 7.0, the next generation of its realtime 3D motion graphics and titling software for Windows. BluffTitler uses Microsoft's DirectX technology and 3D hardware acceleration to create broadcast-quality, animated 3D titles in realtime - results are shown instantly, without rendering. Animations can be played in realtime by the BluffTitler player or exported to video and still image formats for use in videos, computer presentations, Podcasts and websites.
BluffTitler is the ideal 3D titling and motion graphics tool for use with any video editing application including Adobe Premiere, Canopus EDIUS, MAGIX Video, Microsoft Windows MovieMaker, Pinnacle Studio, Sony Movie Studio, Sony Vegas, Ulead VideoStudio and many others.
BluffTitler 7.0 represents a breakthrough in speed and flexibility for broadcast professionals, filmmakers, VJs and video hobbyists who want to rapidly create high-quality titles, animations and motion graphics, said Michiel den Outer, founder of Outerspace Software. BluffTitler 7.0 is faster, more flexible and more fun to use than ever. And all of the power of BluffTitler is still offered at the incredible price of less than 40 Euros.
BluffTitler makes it easy to create dazzling, animated 3D titles from any TrueType or OpenType font with a wide variety of font effects and texturing options - including high-resolution JPEG, BMP, TGA and PNG textures, animated MPEG and AVI movie textures, reflection mapping and bump mapping. Still or moving images can be imported as backgrounds, animated design elements or morphed into a variety of animated 3D shapes such as spheres, cubes, cylinders and donuts. 3D models in DirectX format can be imported and animated. Animated lights illuminate the scene and can cast shadows or visible light rays. Any number of independent layers containing 3D text, smooth scroller text, video files, live video streams, images, particles, 3D models and plasma effects can be created, composited and animated independently.
In addition to its powerful text and graphic animation capabilities, BluffTitler's particle layer can be used to create special effects such as fire, explosions, smoke, fireworks, dripping ooze, rain and snow. Particles can be attached to 3D text objects so the effects appear to be emitted from the object itself. BluffTitler also makes it easy to produce seamlessly looping plasma background animations such as fractal clouds, bouncing lights and tunnels. Cloth simulation effects allow still images and video files to be warped, stretched and morphed in creative ways.
BluffTitler's simple, intuitive user interface lets even novices quickly create professional-quality titles with ease. Animation options include simulated physics for creating text that bounces, pumps, speeds up or slows down. The software even includes wild font effects such as hairy, spiked and exploding text. A special VJ mode allows BluffTitler to be controlled from a MIDI keyboard for live performance applications. Advanced RSS features allow BluffTitler to import dynamic text and images from network locations.
BluffTitler 7.0 includes numerous enhancements over previous versions, including:
