New blue should have something, It won't be a text effect per se...you'll actually have to be creative and think of which effect to use and modify it.

If you use the effect, please don't use it for as long as they did. It was irritating after a while.

pretty sure prodad hyrogylph will do this - they have a 'airport notice board' type effect.

I'm thinking you can do that in Vegas, but it would be tedious. You'd just change the letters in the timeline over a certain span of time and then set it to fast. Am I wrong?

No you're right it would be tedious beyond words. There is another titling program...Bluff Titler...don't know, but it might have something Marcus.

Of course, the short answer is - yes it's POSSIBLE. But, the question then becomes HOW.

It looks like it's doing a LOT - the letters are actually changing as they grow which would take a LOT of keyframes. I don't know of any "easy" ways to achieve the results - no matter what you use.

Not that it helps, but that exact effect is identical to a Preset in 'Livetype' ,
the text plug in for the old Final cut studio.
Was pretty good, type your text, hit random letters/numbers, then set how long until your text appears with key frame.
To easy.

If you really have to have that sort of titling then you can also do it in any flash based software..I used to create an SWF file way back in Vegas 5 and then just import the file into the timeline.

ProDad would probably easier and quicker and also can do multi-layers...it does run as a Vegas plugin too.

Personally for me it's way too boring having such a long intro and also slightly annoying!!! Rather get the titles over fast and get down to the car!! You could always drop in a lower 3rd during the clip as extra info rather than give it all at the start (which no-one will remember anyway!!)

You can do anything in Bluff Titler, it's great and playing the demo suggests ideas.

Cheers.

For anyone that does want to do it in Vegas, the veg is attached.
It's not that hard to do, maybe do it once, takes about half hour, then keep a 3, 4, 5 ,6 etc letter version on file for future use, its generic in that its only your last keyframe that determines what your subject matter is.
And you could change fonts with a group select.
This one is much longer than you would typically use, as people have pointed out, and I agree, it would get annoying if used for more than one or 2 words.
cheers people
:)

The veg is 250kb, limit is 58, if anyone wants it just email me and i'll send it.
