Caching and Performance
Note: This feature is not supported in Titler Pro for Avid or Titler Pro for EDIUS.
Titler Pro comes with versatile caching and performance options that adapt to your workflow. You can choose how Titler caches your titles, set motion blur or manage cache settings. This is useful to optimize how Titler works in your ecosystem.
Preview Render Quality
Preview quality determines the render quality of your title while working in Titler Pro. This render quality may also be used when playing back the titles in your video editing program. Higher settings may impact playback performance, as they are more resource intensive.
Typically, setting the quality to “Good” provides a smooth and visually crisp preview image.
Setting Preview Render Quality:
- Go to Edit>Preferences>Preview Quality
- Select from Draft, Good, Better or Best preview qualities.
Feel free to play with different Preview render qualities to find the one best suited for your system and workflow.
Final Render Quality
Final Render quality determines the quality of your final render output. This is the quality of the title as it will appear in your final rendered video.
Higher Render quality settings will take longer to render and be more resource-intensive, but will yield the highest quality result.
When title caching is enabled, it will draw from this setting for caching purposes.
Setting Final Render Quality:
- Go to Edit>Preference>Final Render Quality
- Select from Draft, Good, Better or Best.
Using Caching Options
Titler Pro has caching options that let you decide how Titler utilizes your resources. Caching helps with playback performance to make your editing experience smoother when dealing with a large timeline and multiple titles.
Caching may also help in your final rendering times, as having pre-rendered graphics can help your video editing software focus mainly in rendering the video timeline assets as opposed to including your un-rendered titles on top of that.
Enabling and disabling Title Caching:
- Go to Title> Enable Cache for this title
- Choose whether you would like to enable or disable title caching.
Title caching is enabled by default to make your first experience as smooth as possible.
Depending on your title and editing workflow, different caching options are available to you to allow you to customize your editing experience.
Using Caching Actions:
- Go to Title>Cache actions
- Choose from one of the caching actions.
Available caching actions:
- Cache un-cached titles: This option will start caching all titles that have not been previously cached in your project. This is helpful for rendering multiple titles in a project and only need to re-render titles that have been changed or updated.
- Re-cache this title: This option will force a re-caching of the current title. This will include any changes you may have made to the title.
- Re-Cache all titles: This option will re-cache all of the titles in the current project. This will update and changes you have made to any of your titles.
- Enable cache for all titles: This option will enable caching for all of your titles in the current project. You can use this option to globally enable caching of all of your titles at once.
- Disable cache for all titles: This option will disable caching for all of your titles in the current project. You can use this option to globally disable caching of all of your titles at once.
Adding motion blur makes your fast-moving motion graphics look more natural and adds visual interest to your titles. Motion blur is disabled by default.
Enabling and disabling motion blur:
- Go to Title>Title Settings…
- Check or uncheck the “Use motion blur when rendering output.” Checkbox.
Note: Enabling motion blur will make your final render time longer.
Understanding Title Analysis
Title Analysis analyzes the frames in your title and determines which frames are static to more efficiently render out your title. This means that Titler Pro will render each frame of animation in your title and then duplicate static frames for faster and more efficient rendering.
