This tutorial by Avid Certified Master Trainer, Jeff Greenberg, brings creating titles center stage. Jeff starts out by teaching you Media Composer's title tools and how they function. Next up there's an in-depth look at Kerning and Leading typesetting techniques and how you implement these typographical traditions in the digital world. From there you'll discover how to make your text really pop using basic effects like Outlines, Drop Shadows and Glows.
The following section is all about 3D: this is where you'll learn how to create elegant Extrusions, with Surfaces that you can Rotate and "illuminate" in a three-dimensional space. Following that is a series of videos that show you how to Animate and Automate your text on a Path, as well as creating Rolls and Crawls.
Finally, Jeff explains how to edit and revise your title creation in the Media Composer 6 timeline.

I have found the Basic Title Tool that is built into Media Composer to be just enough to be able to construct nice and professionally looking lower 3rd's and other titles on screen. It is fast and flexible and very easy to use. Your titles become immediately available within a bin of your choice right in your project, ready to be edited in straight to your timeline. For animated titles or 3D objects and text, you are going to have to try the other flavor of titler called the Marquee Tool. Overall I am glad that I don't have to go out of the program and look for a specialized tool in order to fly in something so simple as a text or a shape on screen.
