The Object Tabs' main features correspond to position, rotation and scale. Here you can change a paragraph's position in 3D space. The Objects Tab also gives you the ability to set keyframes to make your own animations, where keyframes, rotation can have an interval count. You are also given the option to make Text Variables for easy text changes in the Titler Live Interface when making templates. That way you don't have to jump into Title Designer for a simple text change.
Position, Rotation and Scale
Control Position, Rotation and Scale in the Object Tab by dragging the sliders left or right or by double-clicking to enter a specific value. Objects can also be oriented using the orientation handles in the workspace area. When using handles, values will change in real time in the objects tab so you can reference them whenever needed.
Use keyframes to animate the orientation of your title. This is helpful to keep a fluid animation and take control of objects' movements. To enable Keyframing, check the “Turn on Keyframing” box or by right-clicking in the timeline. Changing a control while in another area of the Timeline will place a keyframe where the playhead is resting.
The menu will expand to reveal Keyframe controls. Add and remove keyframes by clicking the + or – buttons on the “Add Keyframe” box.
Keyframes will show up as dots that you can move in time to adjust the speed and timing of your animation.
Note: When trimming paragraphs, keyframes will not move unless you Alt + Trim.
Creating Text Variables
You can create text variables in the Title Designer. When making titles, text variables make paragraphs editable in the Titler Live Interface. Check the Text Variable box and name your variable.
Jump back into the Titler Live Interface to see and edit the newly created text variable.
Limit Render Area
When “Clip To Paragraph Box” is checked, an effect or transition will only appear within the confines of a paragraph's bounding box. You may use the Margin slider to expand the visible area in which the effect or transition takes place.
This is a Title with the “Dropping Words” transition. The first picture shows how the normally applied effect looks in motion.
This picture shows the same transition at the same place in time when “Click to Paragraph Box” is checked.
As you can see, the effect stays within the bounding box of the paragraph, this is helpful for confining effects within an area, like a scoreboard box.

Control Column Layout
The Object Tab also contains options for setting column layout, justifying text and setting tab width. This way, you have complete control of your text parameters. This is helpful when creating credits where you need uniform space within columns. Just set the justification Center, Left or Right to get a symmetrical look. This also works for lists and bullets.
Choose Custom Render Settings
The Object Tab gives you the option to set Render Quality settings for a specific paragraph. You can select from Follow main settings, Draft, Good, Better, or Best. Keep it on Follow main settings to have the paragraph conform to the quality set in the settings menu. You can change the settings any time by coming back to this menu. This is helpful for eliminating anti-alias in alpha images.
