3 small changes in BluffTitler version 15.8.1, launched today:

1) Dot effect

The new Effects/Text/Dot effect does funky things with the dot on the i (the "tittle"):
-colour it
-move it
-size it

It can do the same with the dots of the j, I, J, ! and others!

2) Default font

In the SETTINGS > OPTIONS... dialog, the style (weight and italic) can now also be selected for the default font.

This default font is used when you choose FILE > NEW SHOW. Default default is Arial Black. My current personal default is Bahnschrift (Bold).

3) Optimization

When your system has lots of fonts installed and your show uses a lot of text layers, realtime performance is significantly faster.

Choose the FONTS tab in the nerds dialog (<Ctrl><F1>) to see the cached fonts.

Thank you

Thank you all for your feedback!


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

Great Michiel love it. Already playing with it.👍

This effect could maybe also a letter effect? Then Slider 1: nr. eg. 20 (=T) of the alphabet?

Thank you all!

Filip, use the FX DOT UNICODE VALUE prop to select the character. The letter T has Unicode value 84. This however does not work because the T is, for most fonts, not constructed out of 2 parts. The vertical position of the line that separates those 2 parts is set with the FX DOT DIVIDING LINE prop. This is different for every font and has to be set manually. Maybe you did this on purpose, but this prop is not correctly set in your video.

@ Michiel I did not do it on purpose but I couldn't split it. But it is a nice effect.
