Manifesto lets you create static titles, title rolls and title crawls.
The static title generator offers a unique way to create and adjust simple one-line titles without leaving the parameter inspector. More complex titles and styles can be entered via a separate text editing window:
Manifesto lets you match the duration of your title rolls and crawls to the duration of the clip, thus eliminating the need for keyframes.
• Keyframing optional: no keyframes are required for animation. The text of your choice is scrolled in and out of frame automatically, based on the length of the generator track. This feature also lets you match a title roll (or crawl) to the duration of a different clip.
• Use existing RTF files: this plug-in can reference an existing RTF file on disk, allowing you to rely entirely on an external program for text input and layout.
• Built-in motion blurring and de-flickering: create high-quality animations at any frame rate with built-in motion blur and the ability to reduce interlacing artifacts.
• Easy masking abilities: use external media to determine which portions of the title are visible, or viceversa.
