    is there some open-source or public-domain character generator software on
    the market, of quality and function similar to Inscriber? Is there going to
    be ongoing support for it?

    is there something that can be recommended for a character generator?

    we need to see several screens worth of preview and switch between them
    rapidly, like powerpoint, but also pop up text periodically on the same
    screen. We also have images that need to be displayed one in a while. If
    there are other requirements, I don't know of them yet.
    We have a special interface card for the PC for a CG switcher panel.

    The text doesn't need to be fancy or have a lot of special effects, just
    very readable.

    There is something called TITLE DEKO from pinnacle systems. It should be
    cheap (less than $100 on ebay). I stopped using it because Premiere Pro's
    built in titles do everything I need.

    As nobody said, "there used to be". Cayman, at
    http://www.caymangraphics.com/ has 4 different products, depending on your
    needs/applications.

    thanks. I'm checking out Power CG Live and the newer Inscriber.
    Apparently the newer Inscriber 2.0 is purposed for newscasting, and hence
    the rapid-fire keyboard control, which is what we need, but it would require
    a rackmount HW (probably PC) upgrade.
    Power CG Live (Cayman Graphics) would probably also require a new PC. I
    would have to try it out first, but I am not sure it would meet our needs.
    We would need more of a newscaster-style CG than canned screens for the few
    requirements we have. Maybe we'll have to stick with our older version of
    Inscriber?
    If Jasmine could do this, too bad it's not still around.
