BluffTitler DX9 Brings Affordable, Realtime 3D Titling and Effects to Desktop PCs










San Francisco, CA & Amsterdam, Netherlands (PRWEB) February 11, 2004

Outerspace Software today announced the availability of BluffTitler DX9, the easiest way to add 3D text animations and effects to videos and photos. BluffTitler DX9 uses Microsoft’s DirectX 9 technology and 3D hardware acceleration to create broadcast-quality, animated 3D titles in realtime – results are shown instantly, without rendering. Animations can be played in realtime by the BluffTitler player and screensaver or exported to video and picture formats for use in videos, multimedia presentations and websites.

BluffTitler makes it easy to create dazzling 3D titles from any TrueType font with a wide variety of bevel styles and texturing options – including high-resolution JPEG, BMP and PNG textures, animated MPEG and AVI movie textures and reflection mapping. Still or moving images can be imported as backgrounds or morphed into a variety of animated 3D shapes such as spheres, cubes, cylinders and donuts. Animated point, ambient and directional lights illuminate the scene. Any number of independent layers containing 3D text, video, pictures, particles and plasma effects can be created and animated independently.

“At less than $ 40 US, BluffTitler DX9 is the first program that delivers the power of professional-quality, hardware accelerated titling at a price that even hobbyists can afford,” said Michiel den Outer, founder of Outerspace Software. “Video and graphic design professionals will appreciate BluffTitler features such as realtime display, customizable effects, intuitive animation facilities and reusable preset features that allow them to work more quickly than ever.”

In addition to its powerful text and graphic animation capabilities, BluffTitler’s particle layer can be used to create special effects such as fire, explosions, smoke, fireworks, dripping ooze, rain and snow. Particles can be attached to 3D text objects so the effects appear to be emitted from the text itself. BluffTitler’s plasma layer creates instant animated “eye candy” effects such as fractal clouds, bouncing lights and tunnels.

BluffTitler’s simple, intuitive user interface lets even novices quickly create professional-quality titles with ease. Animation options include simulated physics for creating text that bounces, pumps, speeds up or slows down. The software even includes wild text effects such as hairy, spiked and exploding text. A special “VJ mode” allows BluffTitler to be controlled from a MIDI keyboard for live performance applications.
