    NewBlue TotalFX

    NewBlue TotalFX for PS 25U is now available and, with '177 plugins & 1500 presets,' is on sale for € 86,99. Does anyone already have experience with this package? 

    I noticed that a post-2015 GPU is required. Would a graphics card w/o OpenCL work at all?

    It mentioned the following message: 'We are aware that there may be display issues when using Background Generator and Progressive Stretch but we are working hard with our partner to get them resolved quickly. You will receive updates automatically as they are finalized and ready for you to use.' What does this refer to?

    It means that these 2 plugins doesn't work well and need some fixing.

    Re: Re:NewBlue TotalFX

    Ah, that makes sense. The 'working hard with our partner' got me confused but I guess it's indeed two plugins that don't work too well.

    Re: Re:NewBlue TotalFX

    I'm wondering exactly what plugins are included..... they even mention a titling package.

    Ok where exactly are you seeing this as per my previous post I'm not seeing anywhere that it says it's compatible with PS25U and when looking at prices, nowhere near 87 euro (see screenshot)

    Re: NewBlue TotalFX

    A lot of what they are offering I already have in VE1-7, Elements, Filters, Essentials, Stylizers. and Colorfast 1 and 2

    But what really has my interest is the title editor they might package with the software. Curious to if it's Titler Pro 7? They mention nothing. 

    Is it worth the cost? I would say so if you have none of the NBFX plugins and think you are going to use them, but I think I'll pass for the moment, especially if there is no GPU/CPU utilization to speed up the rendering on both timeline and export.

    It's included as a standalone app.

    Re: NewBlue TotalFX

    Thanks for the info. I already have Titler Pro 7. I would like even TP5 to be integrated in PS. 

    I'll skip TotalFX. It's a great package for those that do not have any NBFX. But as I wrote above somewhere, I have most of what it offers already.

    Re: NewBlue TotalFX

    I tried out NB Titler Pro 7 and was pleased to find out that it works as a standalone but also as a plugin of any video editor that uses OpenFX. In my case, I have HitFilm Pro as well as PS 25U. In addition, all NewBlue effects, transitions etc. that came with TotalFX work also work in HitFilm.

    I like the NB titler a lot. Took me a while to figure out the basics (some YouTube tuts helped) but I am finding out it's quite sophisticated and versatile.  

    My GPU doesn't have OpenCL -- it's one of the requirements NewBlue lists -- but uses Cuda and everything works. Perhaps OpenCL would have made rendering faster.....

    Re: NewBlue TotalFX

    I have several NBFX plugins for OFX. They aren't that well optimized, even though I do have OpenCL.... btw Nvidia supports is also IIRC. 

    I also have NBFX TP5 which I also like much more so than BorisFX Title Studio, again, another OFX plugin. 

    If someone doesn't have any NBFX and want a bunch of addons, the price is more than fair. My only complaint is the price is in Euros although I am Stateside at the moment.

    Isn't there a similar offer in the US, payable in dollars?

    Are you saying that the OFX plugins don't work as well as the ones available in PS? 

  •  11-12-2021, 14:22 818286 in reply to 818285

    Re: NewBlue TotalFX

    The OFX plugins are suppose to make better utilization of the hardware or so it seems. I have old and new NBFX plugins within PS. I just don't use them that much for the work I do to comment specifically. I do know the "old" Video Essentials aren't hardware accelerated at all.

    I treated myself, but not used them yet as I'm away and PS25U is only on the desktop

    Enjoy the anticipatory fun and, when you're at your desk, the exploratory fun! It's quite a package. :-)

    Re: NewBlue TotalFX

    I have a bit of a question as well. I got an e-mail about this special, not an in product notification. I download the app and there is absolutely no place to enter in the license key. Most of the effects show in Pinnacle 25u, but they are x'd out. Does anyone have any thoughts on this.?  Like the variety that is showing...but cannot use anything. The Titler Pro shows up as a standalone, but when I try to activate it I just get sent to the New Blue website where I am prompted to enter in what kind of plan I want. Kind of frustrating. Would appreciate any help I can get.

    Re: NewBlue TotalFX

    Who did send you this email ? Corel or NewBlue ?

    A tool called NewBlue Application Manager should have been installed too. That's where you must activate the package by entering your license key.

    saby:

    FWIW I received the email too - sent by Corel from a @pinnaclesys.com email address. I'm guessing I received the email because I recently bought an upgrade copy of PS25U...

    However there was quite a substantial discrepancy in the quoted price...

    • Clicking the "buy" (IMO misleadingly labelled as "download now") link in the email, a Pinnacle online store page was opened, a coupon code was automatically applied, and the total I was shown was GBP 90.99 (same price as shown in the email itself)
    • However, going via the "NewBlue TotalFX" link on the in-app "Welcome" page in PS25U itself, the price shown is GBP 74.99 - GBP 16 cheaper!

     Is what is available as an in-product purchase inside PS25U "the same beast" as was offered via the email?

    BTW I probably won't be buying at this time as I doubt that the effects would run very well on the weedy integrated graphics in my general-use PC that has PS25U Sad

    Re: NewBlue TotalFX

    You can do two things to activate TotalFX 7: Start Titler Pro and go to Help/Manage Activation or enter "NewBlue Application Manager" in the Windows Search Window. There you enter the serial number you received.
