Animated Titles - Best software??

Archived from groups: rec.video.desktop (More info?)

I was thinking of running something up in Flash, then digging out a Flash
to AVI converter.

Am I barking up the wrong tree?

    I've been using Flash for titles and overlays with great success.
    Just export your final product as an AVI , with a green or blue (or any
    color not used in the flash project) background,
    then key it out in your editor. I happen to use Premiere Pro, but all will
    allow this.
    I'm sure there is a way to save as an alpha channel like I do in Photoshop,
    but this is easy and at least in my experience, produces no artifacts or
    fringing that I can detect.

    Hope this helps.

    The thought of Seattle Eric cajoles my mind into reminiscing about the
    smell of poppy seeds and the image of morning dew making
    rec.video.desktop glint in the crisp autumn rays of a mature sun.

    No, but if you ask nice I'll define pedantic to you ;-)

    OK, maybe I deserved that, but you have to agree that "best CG" means
    different things to different folk and their different applications.

    It sure does, cheers Dave, also I didn't intend to blue/greenscreen, but
    I'll hold onto that idea for future use ;-)

    True, it may have been a poor choice, but I think we're all big enough
    to know that I'm just out to harvest opinion.

    Ulead Cool3d is pretty cheap and does a nice job on simple animated titles.

    Blufftitler also does a nice job for simple animated titles.
