General

What is a BixPack?

A BixPack is a collection of BluffTitler templates. The texts, pictures and photos can easily be changed by using the BluffTitler GUI. The result can be rendered as a video file in any resolution up to Full HD & 4K.

Why do I need BluffTitler to use the templates?

BixPack templates are provided as BluffTitler show files. This means that you need BluffTitler to play and render them.

A free evaluation version of BluffTitler can be found here.

Please note that a BixPack license does not include a BluffTitler license.

What are the system requirements of BixPack?

Detailed info about the system requirements can be found here.

Do I need the PRO or ULTIMATE edition of BluffTitler?

No. The BixPack templates play exactly the same in the EASY as in the PRO and ULTIMATE editions. The EASY edition allows you to edit basic things like the texts, pictures and resolution. If you want to edit all effects and properties you need the ULTIMATE edition.

Can the BixPack templates be rendered in 4K?

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 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.
