@Reyfox I looked at Newblue Total FX last yr, it was £1500-ish, then it was on offer at Xmas for £700, i was tempted but I prob already have a lot of similar fx's, but when looking again earlier in the yr it had gone back up to £1500 so that answered that for me, But looking just now it's £699 again,
So i can't imagine that offer on the Magix upgrade is the full Newblue Total FX ,
@browj2 thanks for that. I am a "basic" transition user for the most part. But the questions you ask are important ones. Will the transitions work with another NLE? And they SHOULD work with MEP/VPX. There is a HUGE oversight somewhere to not have this compatibility.
I did see for $10 more that Illuminate comes with the Premium purchase. But I "think" it's included with Total FX....
@Gid, yes Boris shows up in VPX on my computer, but like you said, it's problematic in working. I have Title Pro 5 (I uninstalled TP7 because I had too many issues with it), but that too doesn't show up in VPX, but Elements, Filters, and others.
Hi, bit of a pain, I already had MEP 2022 & had these NewBlue already on my system
When i upgraded to MEP 2022 last yr i got Stylizers Ultimate, I couldn't get rid of the red cross, so i went back to Stylizers Excite, still couldn't get rid of the red cross, even after emails with NewBlue. this partly put me off getting TotalFX originally, I have considered just uninstalling all NewBlue because there's nowt worse than clicking on an effect to find it's red crossed out, even though apparently it's activated, & i've been spoilt having the full Boris suite 😁
Anyway, Paid for TotalFX £41, cheap enough for a gamble 🤷♂️😂 got emails, download & activation key for MEP 2022, & a link for TotalFX,
MEP install was no prob, link to TotalFX opens this window, the download link doesn't work, it just reloads that window
Install was quick, can't decide if that was too quick 🤔
This is what shows in MEP, 4 main categories, Elements, Stylizers, Essentials & Filters, they all have about as many subsets as you can see behind the drop-down
NewBlue TotalFX page https://newbluefx.com/products/totalfx/ shows these categories + Transitions, that last one is still eluding me, 🤷♂️ a lot of these fx's i can find but haven't been through them all,
The next list on the website Titler Pro,
This a standalone + plugin program it seems, i found it in MEP but not played with it yet,..
lots of 'Magix's' but MEP doesn't show on the Titler Pro compatibility list ,
I have had a very brief look in Vegas, it's in the Media Generator tab
click on the little grey symbol in Video FX & it opens the separate window
From what i've tried so far most of the NewBlue fx's i had are in this 'one' TotalFX so at the mo i'm not going to re-install my old NewBlue stuff, & when it does go wrong i've just got 1 activation code to deal with,
For the price i would give it a go 👍👍👍
Perpetual licence or time limited i still have no idea, I've not read anything saying either so far, The orig price for this at the mo is £699, i'd want perpetual for that 😏 there is a subscription offer on their site so i do think this is perpetual 👍👍,
It will be interesting to see how GID makes out playing around with Titler Pro 7 with MEP. From what I have seen so far, it is problematic.
@browj2 Titler Pro does open really slowly, you'd think you didn't click on it, but it works fine once opened, back in MEP tho & it slows everything pretty much to standstill, I won't be using it in MEP.
I installed Boris CC Title Studio that I got when it was free, and it is still terribly slow in VPX13, even with my new hot machine. At least I get smooth playback after Preview Rendering, something that doesn't seem to work with some other effects. Still, it's a dog. I'll stay away from NB Titler Pro and stick with BluffTitler. BT is much better and is the poor man's After Effects without the slowdown.
@browj2 👍 Boris Title Studio is quite slow, comes to a standstill if you try putting the text on a pic in the timeline, converting/exporting the jpg/png to mp4 helps, There's 'splines' that are for creating background shapes, the corner points are impossible to get hold of to move, It's a shame because i'd like to play with that but i just end up getting frustrated,
