LostBoyz, vincent, Alex-Raymond T. and 6 others like this!

A few small changes in BluffTitler version, launched today:


The following translations have been updated: Español, Chinese(Simplified) and Chinese(Traditional).

BluffTitler now speaks 23 languages, of which 10 are 100% up-to-date!

For more info press <Ctrl><F1> and select the LOCALE tab.

Robotic arm layer

The robotic arm layer assumed all limbs (submodels) use the same texture and colour. All models of BixPack 43 use this system because it speeds up rendering, but of course it should correctly use the textures and colours as stored in the model file. This has been fixed now:

Happy new year tags

To make it easier to reuse your happy new year cards, a few new tags have been added:

<nextyear />
<nextyearX--- />
<nextyear-X-- />
<nextyear--X- />
<nextyear---X />
<nextyearXX-- />
<nextyear--XX />

For example when you enter the text "Happy <nextyear />" in the textbox of the text layer, the text "Happy 2022" is displayed. This way the year is always automatically updated!

The BixPack 18 and 34 templates have been updated with this new system:

Exploding models

The model layer now features a JUMBLE property. It works the same as the same named prop in the text layer, only it operates on submodels instead of characters. It can be used to create fancy explosions. On the screenshot your can see what EZ looks like with the JUMBLE prop.

As always, the latest version can be downloaded from the download page:

Thank you all for your reports and suggestions!

Fantastic news! VideoCopilot's top AE plugin Element3D does it the same way as the jumble prop. E3D alone costs more than BT Ultimate - not to mention the AE subscription on top. And we get this feature for free - what more can you ask? I'm super happy! Physics simulation would only slow everything down.

Thank you Michiel, fantastic!

I'm still wowed by this feature. Thanks again. The only thing I've noticed: Attached particles don't follow the moving submodel parts like in the text jumble effect. Would be cool to have some trails on the exploding parts. :-)

Thanx Michiel looks great.

Thank you very much Michiel

Thank you all!

Making the attached particles listen to the JUMBLE prop is a good suggestion. Here's a quick test. It indeed creates nice trails 🌠🌠🌠

Michiel, the trails look even better than I've imagined! This opens up so many possibilities. Thanks a lot.

Hello Michiel,

You indicated that BixPack 18 and 34 templates have been updated. Do we have to purchase them again or is there a way to update. If so, how?


JCB, 6 days ago

John, both are free updates. Simply download them again with the same info!
