New to Title Studio here, so I apologize for the very basic question and I hope it has a very obvious answer. I’m fine with slapping my forehead.
So in Vegas Pro 17, I’m trying to composite a Boris Title Studio title onto a photograph or video. I duplicate the photo or video in a video track above the one I want the title to appear on. Then I click on fx on the upper track, add BCC Title Studio as a plug-in, and then select a preset (typically from the drop-down menu, but sometimes from the FX Browser). I put my new text in the various fields in the FX Browser, click Insert Text, click Apply, at which point I’m returned to the Vegas Pro timeline. So far, so good. I hit Preview to see what I’ve got, and the title appears just as it should, composited beautifully onto the photo or video. But when I render the video, the title isn’t there.
I thought I’d figured it out when I noticed that I could open up the top track’s fx chain and move BCC Title Studio ahead of pan/crop so it was first in the chain, but I can’t get that to work consistently on other projects. I’ve tried to figure out what’s different project to project, but so far I don’t spot any differences. I readily admit that I’m a newbie trying to pin-the-tail-on-the-donkey, so I may well have flipped a switch somewhere and forgotten about it.
Bottom line for me is that I can’t figure out how to make a BCC Title Studio render over a photo or video, at least not consistently. Since this is the most basic thing one can do in this environment, I figure there’s something simple and obvious I’m just missing.
I appreciate any help provided. Thanks.
