Download here

Here's a download link for all 3 files Marty created:

http://group101sf.com/gl2_ntsc_title_letterbox.zip

I'll leave them there indefinitely . . .

Marty's instructions:

When using these templates don't shoot in 16:9 mode. Just shoot in normal mode and use the title mix function to add them to your shot. It works great. If you open this file it will at first appear all black. The upper and lower bars are RGB 12,12,12 but the middle is RGB 0,0,0,. The GL2 will key out the center section.

Thanks!

This looks good while you shoot and while you edit, however I ran into trouble.

After I exported my video out of Vegas in Widescreen mode.

AKA - Render - DVD - 24P Widescreen

The footage that used the title mix function comes out completely wrong. Basically it shows on my 16x9 Sony HDTV as a 4x3 letterboxed movie, unlike the rest of the movie, like titles and such. which fills the entire television as it should.

So, all in all I have to use the 16x9 ratio in Vegas on top of the title mix anyways, so I don't see the benefit of using the title mix function. I have to crop off the footage anyhow, ya see.

the benefit would be better framing... instead of shooting with a horridly looking stretched image on the LCD or Viewfinder, you can shoot with the correct image proportion while shooting... of course you should crop it in post :)

but then again, you can also use the 16:9 guides instead of this (title mix) option...

Wow! This thread sure has received alot of attention. It is just about a year old, and still at the top of the list.

I am so glad that so many people are using their GL2's to the fullest capabilities.

I am so glad to be back, I missed this place!

I will be glad to assist in your TM questions...

Keep on Title-Mixing!

Hello everyone... I just wanted to drop by and say hello. I received a TM question last week via email... I am amazed that people are still talking about/using the title mix function.

I have been out of the video loop for a little while now.

Let me know if I can help in any way...

quick time tutorial

Howdy folks,

I just came across this thread and tried to download the quick time version @ the link Tustin recommended but it seems to be a dead link. Does anyone know if the quick time version of this tutorial is still available? I would greatly appreciate any help with this; I have been using just the 16:9 guides in the viewfinder and applying a mask in post with varying results with apple software. This feature sounds like just the ticket! Thanks much, Pablo
