San Diego Video production company, BizVid Communications leads the way in the creation of media tutorials. As an example, the tutorial in this blog post is designed to show how to add a title to a video clip in Adobe Premiere Pro.
The first action is to position your cursor on the word “title” found on the menu bar. Once clicked, the drop down will present three title creation choices: Default Still, Default Roll or Default Crawl. For this exercise, click Default Still and the “New Title” box will appear. It is in this box you will name your title. We have chosen to name our new title, “Harbor” since it will be inserted over a video clip of a harbor. Click “okay.”
A “Title Box” appears and this is where you will create the actual title words. Position your mouse over the “T” to activate the “Title Tool” and click. When the “Title Tool” is activated, position your cursor over the main screen and click. This will activate the space which allows you to begin typing the word, “Harbor.”
The word “Harbor” will default to a font style which, in our case, is not the correct font for our purpose. So we will click the “Font Family” drop down found at the right of the main screen and select a new font. When clicked, it will change to the desired style. The font also defaults to a 100% size which is bigger than what we would like. So we will make that change as well.
To discover how to manipulate font size, add drop shadow, change the fill color and text position, watch the video tutorial found in this post. You will be creating titles in minutes.
