  • Quick Titler Background

    Trying to create a quick title with a white background so I click on background white on the background properties panel. Goes white on the QT window but when inserted onto a title track or video track the background is still transparent ie you can see the video underneath it. Tried it with a still image as background but the same thing happens. Is this a bug or am i doing something wrong?

    (I got round it by using a colour matte under the clip but in this particular case changing to a coloured background would be useful)

    I am afraid this has been the case since Edius 3. I have asked support back then but no solution could be provided. Only workarounds as you mentioned.

      Regrettably both QuickTitler and TitleMotion "Pro" are less than adequate, and the most disappointing features of an otherwise excellent editor.

      You can import a still into QT, resize it to full screen and then send it to the bottom of the stack. This has the same effect as using a colour matte, but does not take up an extra track on the timeline. (Which of course begs the question: if this works why can't proper backgrounds be made to work?)
