Here are the release notes for BluffTitler version 15.8, launched today.

Fragment explosion

Version 15.8 introduces a new explosion system called FRAGMENT EXPLOSION. In contrast to the existing EXPLOSION property, that simply uses the mesh polygons, it deconstructs text, vector, traced bitmap, picture an video layers in solid fragments.

Constructive deconstruction

It's not only about destruction, the screenshot shows an example how the fragments can be used to create a fresh new text style. The show comes with the installer: Text\ExplosionText3.bt

Text, Vector an Traced picture layers

The new explosion system explodes the text into solid fragments and can be controlled by 2 new properties FRAGMENT EXPLOSION and FRAGMENT EXPLOSION SIZE:
outerspace-software.com...

The installer comes with demos:
Text\_TextLesson10.bt
Text\ExplosionText1.bt
Text\ExplosionText2.bt
Text\ExplosionText3.bt
Text\ExplosionText4.bt
Text\ExplosionText5.bt
Text\ExplosionText6.bt
Text\ExplosionText7.bt
Text\ExplosionText8.bt

The EXPLOSION property has been renamed to POLYGON EXPLOSION because that's what it does: exploding the text model into its polygons:
outerspace-software.com...

And the JUMBLE property has been renamed to CHARACTER EXPLOSION, because it explodes the text into its characters:
outerspace-software.com...

Picture and Video layers

The new explosion system explodes the texts into solid fragments and can be controlled by 2 new properties FRAGMENT EXPLOSION and FRAGMENT EXPLOSION SIZE:
outerspace-software.com...

The installer comes with demos:
Picture\ExplosionPicture1.bt
Picture\ExplosionPicture2.bt

The EXPLOSION property has been renamed to POLYGON EXPLOSION because that's what it does: exploding the picture model into its polygons:
outerspace-software.com...

Model layer

The JUMBLE property has been renamed to SUBMODEL EXPLOSION because that's what it does: exploding the model into its submodels:
outerspace-software.com...

The installer comes with demos:
Model\ExplosionModel.bt

Thank you

Thank you all for your ideas, suggestions and reports!

Use the new explosion features with responsibility. Try to limit blowing things up to computer gfx. Thank you. Peace for all.

Great! I really appreciate all the detailed information on this new release, especially on what the new demo-shows are.

And the fact that the complete installer is still only some 52 Mb including all the shows, textures, models etc. is simply astounding as far as I'm concerned. Thats a lot of good stuff in a very small package.

Add to that the entire installation takes about 10 seconds.

Magnificent effect. I wanted to ask for a clarification please, this effect is only found in new text layers or can also be applied to old animations. Thanks for the outstanding and continuous work.

Franco Aversa, 2 years ago


Franco, the FRAGMENT EXPLOSION property is only available for a limited number of styles including FLAT, SOLID and STROKED. So you might have to switch to one of those styles in order to use the new prop:

A suggestion:
Import a transparent png for fragment pattern like breaking glass

Thanks Michiel I didn't realize that maybe the old animation wasn't set to those properties. Thank you very much, a fabulous effect with tons of possibilities to create new things
