NEXT GENERATION 3D TITLING AND ANIMATION
Continuum Title Studio is the next generation in 3D Titling and Animation. With Title Studio, it’s easy to create 2D/3D vector titling and motion graphics (including C4D and OBJ 3D model import) directly inside the host of your choice. Built on a powerful and accelerated 3D engine, with a modern user-configurable custom GUI, Title Studio gives you the power to quickly design and animate 2D/3D graphics with complete control over lights, cameras, materials, bevels, extrusions, and more.
Title Studio includes hundreds of factory installed presets, which can be accessed via the integrated FX Browser and can be customized for use in any supported host or platform.
The new split 2D / 3D scene modes allows objects to cast shadows in a true 3D environment. When in 3D scene mode, objects that are in the path of a scene shadow light can now cast 3D shadows onto other objects in the scene, making for more photorealistic 3D graphics compositing. In 2D scene mode, objects are rendered according to their track hierarchy, meaning that objects closest to the top of the stack will render in front of objects that are lower in the stack. In 3D scene mode, objects are rendered according to their position along the Z axis, regardless of the track hierarchy.
Simplified user-customizable timeline which includes the ability to hide/show transformations and / or materials at the touch of a button, which makes traversing tracks in deep composites a speedy task. The new “Uberkey” function includes a visible button in the timeline which, when clicked, switches the visible track listing to display only those tracks that contain animated parameters, making it super easy to view and fine tune keyframe animation.
This new addition makes it easy to configure the GUI to work with cameras and lights. Title Studio includes an option to incorporate multiple cameras and lights in any scene. The toolbar in Title Studio has been expanded to include 2 new buttons, each of which provides a quick way to automatically switch the GUI so that you can interact directly with the 3D cameras and lights in a 3D viewer. Simply clicking either of these buttons will switch the viewer over to the World view and display either the camera or lights parameters in the Control Panel.
This new feature provides users with an option to offset the pivot point of any 2D or 3D object from it’s source, which is very useful when designing animated title graphics and lower thirds. Users can now rotate and scale an object around independently positioned points or from the center or the edge of the 3D object.
Included now in Title Studio is a Motion Path filter for animating the position of multiple objects along a user defined spline-based motion path. Simply add the Motion Path filter to a scene, draw an open or closed spline shape and all objects in the scene will snap to the contour of the spline shape. The Motion Path feature includes controls to reposition and animate objects along the couture of the user defined path shape.
The start and end of any track can now be trimmed using industry standard click and drag directly in the timeline window, which reduces the work involved in controlling the timing of animated graphic elements in any scene. It also makes it easier to tell at a glance by simply viewing the timeline when objects are set to appear in the scene.
The “Hold Parameter Value” option is now enabled by default. This feature sets parameter values to “Hold” before the first and after the last keyframe in the timeline, which matches the standard for most other motion graphics generators. The Record Button, which automatically sets new keyframes whenever a parameter value is changed by the user, now defaults to off which prevents the accidental generation of keyframes when making adjustments to objects in the scene.
With Continuum 11, Title Studio now includes hundreds of brand new professionally designed preset motion graphics templates, all of which can be viewed (with animation) from within the integrated FX Browser prior to committing any preset to the timeline. All presets are fully customizable and users can augment the factory installed preset library with their own customized templates, which can be shared over network devices.
In general, the overall performance while working in Title Studio UI has been improved and static titles in particular show a 400 percent improvement in render time.
One of the areas of improvement for Title Studio has been with the quality of the edges of 3D Objects. While earlier versions of the software produced objects with edges that were acceptable, we have improved the quality of the edges and now offer multiple anti-aliasing options for 3D objects. Users can lower the level of anti-aliasing while setting up a complex 3D scene, which provides a speed boost and then switch over to higher quality edges for the final render.
Title Studio provides a custom UI window to enable a vastly richer motion graphics toolset than can be achieved with just native host parameters. Yet, in addition to that flexibility and power, it offers very simple browsing, applying, and customizing pre-made animation presets/templates using the FX Browser. Title Studio is located in the 3D Objects category and is 100% GPU accelerated using an advanced OpenGL graphics engine for fast, accurate rendering.
The interface is designed for true 3D interaction, with multiple views and the ability to create unlimited graphics and titles inside of a single effect instance.
