Unless you have a very fast hard disk and lots of memory, a video file is always a compromise between sharpness and smoothness:
Exporting uncompressed gives you the best possible image quality, but the files are huge and it won't play without stuttering.
Exporting compressed gives you small files and a smooth playing animation, but the individual frames look not as sharp.
For this reason exported shows will never look as good as when played in realtime by BluffTitler.
Take the getting started lesson.
BluffTitler uses the colour of the ambient light layer as the background colour. You can select the ambient light layer with the layers dropdown. Another option is to choose FILE > Set background colour.
You can make the texts smaller and bigger with the Font size property. When you select this property with the dropdown above the 3 sliders you can use the 1st slider to change the font size.
Choose MEDIA > Change texture... or press <F9>.
Select the text layer and choose LAYER > Attach particles to active layer....
You do not have to: layers are automatically sorted by their distance to the camera. Only in the situation where you have more than a single 2D picture layer, manually rearranging makes sense. To move a layer up choose LAYER > Bring active layer forward.
Move the mouse cursor to any edge or corner of the window until a double headed arrow appears. Once this arrow appears click the mouse and drag it up, down, left, right, or diagonally.
Simply move the layer to an invisible position.

BluffTitler combines the latest video and 3D techniques so make sure your system is up-to-date. In our experience it is possible to fix all stability problems by performing the following steps:
Shows that use big textures, video and audio files can take long to load. If the application does not respond it does not always mean that it has crashed. Sometimes patience is all you need.
Remember that all pictures have to be stored as uncompressed textures on your graphics card. A JPG picture might be small in bytes, but the number of pixels is the only thing that counts. For example a picture with a resolution of 4096 x 3072 pixels always takes up 48 MB, no matter its filesize. And realize that by quadrupling the horizontal resolution the number of pixels increases 4x4=16 times!!! A resolution of 1024 x 768 only requires 3 MB (3x16=48)
Make sure the resolution and framerate of your BluffTitler project matches your NLE project. Choose FILE > Set show resolution... to set the resolution and choose FILE > Export as video... to set the framerate.
Tips for exporting your show can be found here.
This happens when the software or hardware you are using to play the video is not powerful enough. Use a lower resolution, a lower framerate or use compression.
On this page you can find tips for the most popular NLEs.
If a codec refuses to work you have to do some experimenting with different resolutions and framerates. Some codecs have strange limitations. For example DivX seems to work only with a limited number of standard resolutions like 1280 x 720.
Some programs lock system resources that might prevent BluffTitler from running correctly. Close all other apps before starting BluffTitler.
