Do I need the PRO or ULTIMATE edition of BluffTitler?

Yes. By using the BluffTitler GUI you can export the templates in any resolution and aspect ratio you like. Choose FILE > Set show resolution... to change the resolution. BluffTitler has presets for all standard HD and UHD resolutions.

The maximum resolution BluffTitler can render depends mostly on the available video memory. For HD resolutions you require a graphics card with at least 512 MB video memory. For 4K, 2GB is preferred. The more video memory, the better the antialiasing quality.
