I have four suites running FCP 5.04 and they all have this problem – Boris Title3D does not launch when you want to create a new title, but all titles from older projects can be opened and edited perfectly. Anybody else with this issue? Any workarounds? At the moment I have to copy and paste any old title into the timeline, double click and launch Title3D that way.
Does it work in 5.1?
At least one serious Boris Title3D rolltitle error was fixed – it used to jump on the second field of the rolltitle in FCP 3 up to 4.5, but it renders perfectly in FCP 5.04.
I’ve had similar issues with both our systems. I’ve reinstalled twice on each system, and it’s still a little buggy. Although, we’ve not had trouble with it not opening, we’ve had trouble with, once it’s opened, you can’t edit or close it. You have to keep hitting the Window close button until it says close without saving changes. Then restart FCP, and it’ll work ok. I know a lot of people don’t like to work with Title 3D, but I love it, and I’ve gotten to the point where it’s an essential tool for me and I can work very fast with it. I hope the next version of FCP will have addressed it’s quirkiness.
