  • Edius 5.1 surprise, QuickTitler colour eydropper

    Found this by accident, was most surprised to find the eyedropper can at last now be used outside of the titler window in Edius 5.1.

    Hurray!

    Matching to a colour in the Edius main preview window is now possible just like all good apps.

    This was a pain before, or did I just not know about it in version 5.01? Certainly previous versions did not allow it.

    However, Quicktitler PDF for Edius 5.1 still says... "Color picker: It cannot be used with QuickTitler".

    Then you also will like the following.
    Right click on a quick tile on the time line.
    Look in the panel that comes up way down you will see title detail settings.
    Very handy when doing hd and Sd switches.

      The QuickTitler PDF pre-dates the version shipped with EDIUS 5.10.

      Haven't received a new PDF yet, so some things may have changed..

        Autosave as

        Another pleasant surprise in QuickTitler: "Autosave as" (even with toolbar icon). This solves the issue with accidentally saving a title with the same name. By using "autosave as" the title is automatically saved with a new name (i.e. number).

        Thanks GV!

          How about the "Preview" button!
          I could barely read what I was typing before.
          A vast improvement!

            Can you explain what has changed with the "preview" button? This button is functioning the same since at least Edius 4. Or am I missing something?

                Well, the preview button was definitely there in 5.01, though I found the F3 key more convenient.

                But now... wait for it... you know what? The eyedropper in V5.1 I enthused about, being able to sample from the recorder window? Well I just went to use this and it's not working anymore!!!! It's back to restraining it to the colour picker window.

                Was I dreaming this? Nope, my business colleague watched me do it that first time, picked up a colour from the video preview and assures me it definitely happened.

                Puzzled...

                    Ok, I believe this is nailed...

                    It must have been Layout tool and not QuickTitler that I was in at that time I was able to move the eyedropper to the recorder window. The eyedropper in Layout is not restricted as it in QuickTitler, I just checked on my other computer and I see this was the same in Edius 5.01, so nothing new there.

                    So why is QuickTitler's eyedropper restricted to it's own window when this same tool is not in Layout? I suggest it's something to do with Layout being part of the Edius .exe while QuickTitler is a separate application that merely plugs in.

                    Macromedia Fireworks 4 is some software I still use a lot and there I can take it's eyedropper across to almost any other app running on my 2nd monitor where it's colour picker eyedropper works just fine, here's hoping Edius will be able to do this soon as I really miss it in Edius titler.

                      Here's a gem of an app that's still on my short list to pick colors until we see further integration.

                          I think you meant 3D PIP, becaue the eydropper can now be used in recorder preview window

                            Anton it was Layout, yep, I was setting a background colour for it when I made the discovery about the eyedropper.

                            Besides I never use 3DPIP, if Layout doesn't do the job I would rather go into After Effects where everything works properly.

                            Like drop shadows for instance.
