Today we've launched BluffTitler version 15.2!

It introduces a few new effects and improves quality necessary for BixPack 40, planned for release later this week.

As always, download the latest version from the download page:

Here are the full release notes:

Updated translations:
Thanks to all translators for keeping the translations up to date!

4 new effects:
Layer this week, BixPack 40 will demonstrate the power of the new effects. If want to pioneer, try them out now!

Improved effect thumbnails

Mouse wheel control timeline slider
The time can now be adjusted by hovering over the timeline and rolling your mouse wheel. Use the <Alt>, <Ctrl> and <Shift> keys to control the displacement.

New resolution preset in FILE > Set show resolution... dialog: QHD (2560 x 1440).
This a nice resolution in between FHD and 4K. When you do not have the time/hardware to render in 4K, use QHD. This is especially useful when uploading to YouTube because it seems to switch to a higher bitrate making FHD look better as well!

New effect property in Special/NormalMapper: FX Space
This switches between text, world and model (character) space.

New effect property in AdvancedMaterials/ColourmapFrontReflectionmapSides and AdvancedMaterials/ColourmapFrontCubemapSides: FX Mirror
This is useful in the traced picture layer when the traced picture contains text and you want to make it readable from the back as well.

New effect property in Filters/SoftBorder: FX Noise
This can be useful when fighting JPG and MPG banding artifacts.

Resolution shadowmap doubled in super high quality
This removes resolution artifacts when rendering shadows using shadow maps.

Max number of vertices increased from 200K to 300K
This not only makes loading bigger 3D models possible, but also models generated by the vector, sketch, particle and other layers. Use it with care.

Bugfix: the Filters/ShutterBlades effect now handles transparency correctly

Bugfix: scroller layers now always restart when the show starts playing, except in playlists when a scroller matches a scroller in the previous show

Bugfix: plasma layers now always ignore fog

Great, I will wait for the new package to better understand the potential of the new commands.

I tried to play around with the many added features, but some examples would be useful.

Greetings to all of you

LostBoyz, for such small changes it works best typing the new time in the textbox. Or else use the MOVE LEFT and MOVE RIGHT buttons.
