nicely done Ian.

I've used some full screen Jumpbacks in Avid and just cropped them down to a lower third and it's worked well. Easy way to make a "themed" set, but using the full JB as a graphic backdrop for the title and then squeeze/crop it for a lower third. I'm using Vegas at home for my own projects, still with an older version of Avid at work, but moving toward Vegas. Just need to get around state purchasing regs etc.

As mentioned earlier by Don Bloom, Bluff Titler is a neat piece of software for $50. Some of the effects are a little over the top, but the inclusion of texturing and particle attachment allows for some very nice 3d stuff for my casual level of work.

This is start up DVD video for a magician that I created using Digital Juice and Bluff Titler.
DVD Introduction Media Video on Vimeo

I have started to use DJ Fonts as well. I am working to coordinated print, web and video titles to have the same look and feel.

I also use Heroglyph from time to time. I can usually get a good looking title in quick order. This video uses Heroglyph

Nice work, Harold.

To pick up on your 'coordinated print, web and video' comment, I'm almost always bound by the client's existing look and feel, especially font choice and colours. The big guys (like T-Mobile, Tesco, IBM etc) have style guides that run into 50+ pages in some cases! Before they will sign off on a project, it has to be viewed by the 'brand police' - if there is any deviation from their guidelines they will will reject it without hesitation. Deviations could be slight colour differences, use of substitute fonts, alteration of their logo or text style in any way (eg making it 3d). Sometimes it feels a little restricting, but on the other hand it does mean that I know exactly where I stand and I don't have to come up with new ideas each time!

But playing with Bluff Titler looks like a lot of fun!

Thanks Ian, For most of the stuff that I do (local business), no one really has an official logo that they worry about. Sometimes I can get a jpg but almost never. I usually try to match the lettering or Photoshop out the signage from the business. Titles are always a pain for me. It really makes a difference in your work regardless if it is Sony Titles or 3rd party stuff. I always have to go back and look at all the titles because I have a tendency to make them too large!! :)

Harold I have also been a fan of DJ and have been playing with various of their products in my productions. I have been on the fence on the DJ Fonts. I'd like to hear your assessment of them as you have and use them Thanks

Chris

PS what other (if any) compositing or Special effects software are you using?

Hello Chris,
There are several things I like about the fonts. The community fonts is a great idea and gives you additional versions of fonts that everyone shares with the community. I have seen some very nice variations there. It is very difficult for me to get creative when it comes to titles but DJ really gives you the tools you need that focus on font creation plus you can open them up in Photoshop for more customization. The fonts provide options for all delivery formats you need and the resolution you want. So I can match the video titles to the DVD cover to the website. You can break them up by line or character for more creativity on the time line. I use Vegas for compositing. Right now I don't have any examples to share but using the Juicer I will be able to customize a font with playing card pips for the magician that I do work for. I bought the fonts on the first day to take advantage of the $50 gift certificate. Hope this helps with your decision.
