Titler Pro

Lights & Wide Angle
The Scene tab allows you to adjust the Lighting and Camera settings for your Titler Pro project.
 

You can add up to three lights to your Titler Pro scene. Choose from Directional , Point , and Spotlight settings. Adjust the Brightness, Position and Direction settings to create the lighting environment for your scene. Finally, adjust the Wide Angle Camera setting to change you depth looks in your scene and the Depth of Field setting to add new depth to your title.

Camera Settings
 

At the top of the scene tab is the camera settings. Wide Angle controls the lens for the camera. Adjusting this setting will be most noticeable with Extrusion on your text.

Depth of Field

Depth of Field is the distance between the nearest and farthes objects in a scene that appear acceptably sharp in an image. By using these controls, you can control the depth and the focus area of the title. This allows you to emphasize a specific area while de-emphasizing the foreground or background.

Focus Distance determines the distance from the camera that is in focus. This setting will let you determine which area of the title is in or out of focus.
Aperature determines the size of the focus area. The larger the number, the tighter the focus area. The smaller the number, the larger the focus area.
Blur Level specifies the amount blur to apply to the out of focus area. Larger blur amounts will also tighten the focus area.

Light Settings

Titler Pro comes with several lighting presets. You can choose to start with one of the presets and then adjust the settings to fine-tune the desired look.
The Ambient Light settings controls the light for the entire project. Increase this value to brighten up the title.

 

By default, a new project will start with the 3 lights set to one of each of the different types: Directional , Spotlight , and Point.
Use the Type dropdown to select which type of light you want to use
The Directional light is a fixed position light that casts a wide beam of light across the scene. Adjust the direction that the light is pointing by using the controls in the preview window or adjusting the Direction X, Y, and Z sliders. T
he light can also be any color. Change the color of the light using the Color palette or the Eyedropper.
Next, Adjust the brightness of the light using the Brightness slider.
Finally, each of the lights can be keyframed individually. Select the Turn on Keyframing option for any light type you want to keyframe and adjust them individually.
 

As its name implies, the Spotlight can be used to illuminate a specific section of your scene.
Adjust the position that the Spotlight is pointing from using the controls in the preview window or adjusting the Position X, Y, and Z sliders.
Adjust the direction that the Spotlght is pointing by using the controls in the preview window or adjusting the Direction X, Y, and Z sliders.
Change the color of the light using the Color palette or the Eyedropper.
Adjust the brightness of the light using the Brightness slider.
Adjust the Beam width to increase or lower the size of the area that the Spotlight illumantes.
Use the Soften control to blend the edges of the Spotlight gradually into the scene. Turn this all the way down for a hard edge on the Spotlight.

 

Point lights can be especially useful in creating different lighting effects.
Adjust the position that the Point light is pointing from using the controls in the preview window or adjusting the Position X, Y, and Z sliders.
Change the color of the light using the Color palette or the Eyedropper.
Adjusting the Brightness slider changes the brightness of the Point light and also adjust the width of the light beam. Lowering Brightness on a Point light will cause the light to become more localized.
