Wouldn't it be cool if the fxhome products had a text engine, nothing advanced, but it would be cool.

I think that would be pretty cool. Though FXhome products aren't made for doing a lot of things you would use a text engine for, I think it would help with adding titles to movies. You're 'supposed' to add titles in an NLE, but you can get cooler, more custom ones if you use a Lab product, and I think a text engine (even just a simple one) would make it easier to do.

I agree. A text engine in Visionlab would be a much "cooler" alternative to using the usual lame NLE titling.

Yes, typing text beside the already existintg freehand, square and circle at masking, it would be good ... for creating burning letters logo, or snow falling logo...

...recently I can workaround with any bitmap editor, from Paint, Paint.net, PaintS...P.., Gimp, or Ph...Shop.

This textengine could be ... vectorbased ... what is better then bitmaps.

(Where can I vote?)

although it's stupid to buy this just for text, adobe after effects is great for text. We use it at uni and you get some great results

I agree with jawajohnny. A text engine would be 10x better then just typing in a title on your NLE. Man, this would be seriously a great upgrade to the Fxhome products.

NLE being Neon Light Engine? Because that's what I usually use for text.

Text engine would be cool.

NLE being industry standard talk of saying "Non Linear Editing" Basically it means Adobe Premire, Sony Vegas, ect. All the editing stuff.
