    Title Tool problem MC6

    Hi, I am having a roblem with the title tool.  Doesn't seem to save.

    My process..

    I make one title, set font sizes etc.  Then duplicate said title, drop into timeline and then open, edit and close (save).  I have always done it this way for hundreds of projects.

    However, when I am trying it now (first time in MC6) it goes to save but sits there and does nothing.  Then if I click again to close it it asks me if I am sure I want to close a title that is currently being saved.  I've had to reboot twice.  Anyone else had this problem?  Is there a work around?

    Just very basic titles... White on black, not promoted to Marquee.

    Thanks

    Works here.... Maybe with a slight variation on what you do because Title tool is now a seperate program from MC6.
    I made Title and chose Save as and called it template.
    Edited title to the timeline.
    With Effect editor open chose edit title.
    Edited then used Title tool save.
    It created a new title in the bin (rename?).
    The existing title in timeline automatically updated to new title.

    I ended up doing it After Effects as on a deadline but thanks for the response, appreciated.

    Next time I try it I will post my response here to clarify if working or not.

    Cheers!

    I have the same problem.  It's intermittent, happening in about one-third of the attempted saves.

    Re: Title Tool problem MC6

    I created a basic title yesterday and then clicked the close button and it asked me if I wanted to save - I answered YES and at some point in the process, a dialog appears stating that the title could not be saved. Strangly enough, the title was actually saved but something is not quite right here.

    I repeated this procedure and it worked just fine so whatever happened may have been a glitch - since the title tool has changed in the way it interacts with MC 6, there may be some timing issues - weird though...

    Re: Title Tool problem MC6

    I have had several issues with the latest incarnation of Title Tool as well.  I have seen the issue mentioned above, but also had others:  Since 5.0 (or maybe even 4.x) sometimes I design a title that is aligned on 1 line in the title tool window, then when I save and look at the subsequent frame, a word or words have shifted to the next line, yet if I re-edit the title in Title Tool, everything looks correct as I designed it.  To workaround this, I have had to add phantom spaces or tweak leading.

    My other issue now that it's a separate program is the time it takes to open.  With stopwatch in hand, I counted 24 seconds from 'edit title' click to open window.  And this is on an SSD system drive!

     

    Something is amiss in Title land!

    Re: Title Tool problem MC6

    Yes, i am having the exact same problem as DKxyz.

    I am working on an HP z800 with a Symphony 6 software.

    Also, when i try to import a Graphic or picture i get the error message Exception: out of memory.

    I recently updated to  version 6,01, but the problem is the same.

    What could be the problem?

    Those with problems- are you using a Matrox Mini MX02?  If so, try unplugging it, restart your machine with it off, and attempt to make a title with no Matrox.

    Re: Title Tool problem MC6

    This was an issue in 2006 june:

    http://community.avid.com/forums/p/18775/214290.aspx#214290

     

    SIX YEARS LATER, 2012 march 29, MC 6.01 and it is STILL NOT WORKING!

     

    Still the same issue.

    Title tool displays correctly but MC re-formats the lines and drops the last line.

    It seems happening when a line is wider than the avid-engineers' imaginery 'safe title' area.

    I can't find any switch like 'enforce safe title area'.

    Re: Title Tool problem MC6

    We have discovered its a Sony plugin related issue.

    If you remove all the Sony PDWU1/U2, FAM and ama plugins from your computer it should work again.

    Yes I had the same problem. After uninstalling PDW-U1 XDCAM Driver 3.0 and installing version 2.3.0 everything worked again.

    Re: Title Tool problem MC6

    Just upgraded to Symph-6.0.1.  I can't "Recreate Titles" nor open title tool and edit.

    Nothing happens...like it's not there. I'm putting the new upgrade through it's paces,

    and this cropped up today while I'm conforming a finished sequence.  I do have the XDcam

    PDW-U2 deck online as I have been importing media from ProDisc. That workflow is OK.

    Titles are being difiicult!

    Thanks for any suggestions,

    ScottK
