Digital video is a medium that is now available to almost everyone. It can be captured on anything from a mobile phone to a high-definition camera, and published anywhere from YouTube to Blu-ray discs. In Premiere Elements 4 Essential Training, Adobe Certified Instructor Chad Perkins explores all the video editing capabilities of Premiere Elements 4. Chad starts with a real-world sample project, then covers techniques for importing and editing video; and adding effects, transitions, and animation. He concludes with a final project incorporating all the steps, including exporting and posting. Exercise files accompany the course.
Our final step before exporting to YouTube is to adjust the titles in this Movie Theme. Now in this project, which by the way we're using the Titles project, from the Chapter 13 folder, if you'd like to follow along here. In this particular project we only have to worry about the ending credits. Typically when you apply a Movie Theme, intro credits are added as well. Basically kind of like a intro title, 'Welcome to my movie' or whatever and that was the case here, but we kind of deleted those, when we deleted this stage graphic in the last movie.
So those aren't there. Now I happened to know that these closing credits start at 34 seconds in, so I just want to jump to that point. Here is a quick and easy way to do that. I am going to go to my little time display here. I just click inside. I'm going to type 34, so now I want to jump to 34 seconds in. If I were to hit Enter here, I'd actually jumped to 34 frames in, not seconds. So the way that we tell Premiere Elements we don't want to jump to 34 frames in, instead of 34 seconds is by adding a period, interestingly enough. So type 34 period, hit enter and you'll jump to 34 seconds in time where our credits begin.
So let's go ahead and click on Add text here and let's go ahead and double-click that to enter into text editing mode. Let's go ahead and change these graphics. Because I'm somewhat egocentric, I am going to put Created by first, and I'm going to hit Enter there, Chad Perkins. And of course we've got to give credit where credit is due Guitar by Mikey, it just goes by one name now. He's kind of a rockstar; he's kind of like a Madonna or a Sting. He just goes by Mikey. Let's stay Music by Wedgecase and of course we have to show that we're truly humble and say thanks to lynda.com here. Delete those.
Then once we have got our text the way we want it, we'd even scroll down make sure you don't have any additional text and I'm going to go over here to the right side and just select Done. As we scroll we'll see that the credits are customized here. Oops, for some reason it didn't get the lynda text. Let's go ahead and Enter that in again. Sometimes the text animation here is a little bit weird and it doesn't always pick up all the ways. So I'm going to highlight that last little part and type in lynda.com, again after deleting the Add text here text and maybe we can select the Selection tool, select the textbox and then click Done. There we go.
All the credits are exactly the way we want them and our project is essentially done and we're now ready to export this to YouTube, which we'll do in the next movie.
