Need inexpensive app for titles

I need to make animated titles with transparency effects. While I *could* do this frame-by-frame in Photoshop, I'd rather do it with something like Flash, an inexpensive keyframe/tweener

I recall using a shareware app from years ago that could do this, but have since lost track of it.

Basically, a poor-man's After Effects is what I need.

Any recc.'s?

There's Swish which is meant to be a free/cheap alternative to Flash. That might be worth looking into. I haven't used it so I can't vouch for it, however.

I've been looking at some lately myself, and there are a few options

Inscriber (TitleMotion)
Ulead Cool 3d

They all have wacky interfaces which feel very unintuitive to me, strange timelines and cluttered. Unlead's one is about the best that I liked, but it's slow as a mother. You almost have to render everything out before you can see it in any sort of realtime. Shame, or I would have bought it.
