Premiere Elements 10 Essential Training breaks down the editing workflow into bite-sized pieces, covering everything from setting up a project to exporting the final video to any format. Author David Basulto introduces the basics of editing in Adobe Premiere Elements as well as the advanced features like picture-in-picture overlays and audio and visual effects.
Adobe Elements 10 ships with some ready- to-go title templates that will really enhance your videos. Let's take a look at how those work. So we're going to launch Elements, and now I'm going to go into Edit > Titles, and this is where you would see all of your themes. So this particular theme is called Fun, so it's got four different templates in it: Fun Credits, Fun Frame--if I just press the button, it shows you, nothing is animated there-- Fun Lower 3rd--nothing is animated there--and Fun Title, and there is nothing animated there.
But if I go into Fun Credits and click the button, we see that the credits scroll up. So I kind of like that. I want to use that in my project. So I'm going to go right about here and make sure that's selected and choose Apply, and it applies it right there. So once again we're back into the Text tool, and we're going to type in End Credits. And then I'm going to go down here and start picking some people I want to acknowledge. So we have of course, Alina, dancer was in it, and then we're going to say, "Thank you too," and then we'll choose Santa Barbara, and to me, because I need thanks.
We'll say thanks Adobe and lynda.com. So I'm done, and it's in there, and I can just use my Selection tool and let's go back here. And we have to render this once again, so when we see the red bar, let's press the Enter key. And let's go right here and press the spacebar, and here's our credits. So it's going a little bit fast, so I want to slow them down. I've still got more music here, so I'm just going to go, as we do with any other clip, and click on it and drag it to the end there so it snaps, and then we'll render that one more time, and then let's play that.
(clip playing) So there are some nice credits going nice and slow. So that's done. Let's take a look at the lower 3rd, so let's go back in the middle here, and I want the dance company to be acknowledged here. So I'm going to grab this lower 3rd and just bring it down here on top. So I'm going to type in "The Dancers." Drag that right here, and once again we've got to bring back to the front now, so let's go Arrange > Bring to Front, and there's the dancers.
And I might add a little drop shadow, and let's just render that out, and we'll play. So Premiere Elements 10 has some great and fun ready-to-use themes at your disposal. If this one is not particularly right for your movie, I would highly recommend downloading the other themes and content.
