I really love effect files. They add so many cool new material and lighting effects to BluffTitler and yet, they are very easy to use.
The new CHANGE EFFECT button on the tool window shows a magician's hat with a rabbit. Yes indeed, using effects feels like magic!
The text layer on this screenshot uses the REFLECTIONMAP_LIGHTENED.FX effect. In previous versions reflection mapped objects have always been 100% reflective, but with effect files more suble materials are possible. This effect combines reflection mapping with lighting.
Don't forget to check out the new fx page in the updated user's guide. The link is below.
