    Is Title + fixed yet?

    Hi all,

    I'm running 2020.9, with the hideously broken and fairly unrealiable Title + tool.

    Is it properly fixed yet in the latest version?

    Thanks.

    It works fairly well for me in 2021.3 - A lot more intuitive and doesn't crash as much. What sort of codecs do you work in?

    Oh, right. Yeah, I know it's not the best tool.

    There's a difference between 'not the best tool' and a tool that doesn't even work. E.g. I re-arranged the titles, pressed play and the titles instantly reverted back to their original position.

    I'm hoping Title+ in the latest version of Avid actually works.

    Re: Is Title + fixed yet?

    There are incremental improvements in many of the point releases but there are still issues and depending on what you need from a title tool some still find the issues serious enough to make it unviable. Sadly it also leaves a long line of releases with a range of issues so working across systems is a nightmare.

    For many the answer would be no its not fixed and its easier to use other solutions.

    Well it works for me... I do all my Titling with Titler +

    Just because it doesn't work for you, that doesn't mean that it doesn't work in general for everyone else.

    Re: Is Title + fixed yet?

    The problem for many users is if you find a show stopper limitation you have to then use an alternative solution. Once yoiu have that alternative you are less likley to go back to the Avid Titler +

    One issue I had was a limit on the length of a rolling title. The parameter you enter to control the position of the roll vertically maxed out with only 2/3 of my roller displayed. I've also not been able to align objects on screen as much as I need.

    And various other show stoppers.

    James et al.....  

    I did post this earlier to FaceBook as there was a LONG string of conciousness regarding the titler +

    "  I normally wouldn’t post something along these lines but in this case I am going to break my own rules.  Everyone and I mean everyone at Avid knows that Titler+ has been a huge issue for our customers. We’ve been working to rectify the issues as quickly as possible but there is a lot to do. We have changed out some of the team members and brought in new team members to take a fresh look at the implementation and design.  

    Elad Dadon, bless him, took it on as Product Designer under David Colantuoni with Edith Gosselin Picard manning the team of engineers like Bruno, who many of you know and a few other really talented coders.

    The rub here is it’s a new team this year and they know they have a lot of catching up to do but the new team is focused, dedicated and more moola was relocated to the features development.

    We also are using the beta program to make sure everything that we implement will be done with the editor being represented in the process. The next 2 releases will be fix based with bugs getting squashed before you see added features to the tool. I know it stinks but we lost a good chunk of time and now that we have the right players with a common focus… let’s give them a chance to make it right.

    Thanks Marianna, as always.

    Really good to know this is on Avid's radar.

    I'm going to try the latest version and keep my fingers crossed it works.

    Re: Is Title + fixed yet?

    Here's a video recording of the Title + tool screwing me over.

    You'll see as I scroll, the title jumps in position. (error)

    Yet when I'm in edit mode, I've correctly set the title in place and it doesn't move.

    Anyone have any clue as to why this happens? No keyframes exist in the title. I can only conclude it's a bug.

    Re: Is Title + fixed yet?

    I just upgraded to 2021.9 and I can confirm this bug still occurs.

    However, the workaround seems to be adding a keyframe at the start and end of the title effect, thereby 'locking' the title in place.

    I would also like to add, that Title+ seems to be a bigger drain on processing resources, as playback is far from smooth in realtime and often needs rendering.
