Meet Adobe Premiere Pro, and learn the skills necessary to professionally edit video. Abba Shapiro first introduces a "fast track" approach to Premiere that shows the entire import to output process in eight quick steps—ideal as an overview for new editors and a preview of the new features in CC that experienced users will want to see right off the bat. Then transition to the expanded workflow that begins with importing media, creating a basic rough edit, and then refining the cut with music and sound effects, transitions, visual effects, and titles. The course also includes information on exporting and archiving projects, as well as advice for becoming more efficient in Premiere with actions, keyboard shortcuts, and other workflow enhancing tricks.
One of the most popular uses of the title tool in an editing program is to create what's called a lower third. These are the identification of whose speaking and what we're looking at that are located in the bottom third part of the screen. Now I've already started with a graphic on top of Vanessa and myself speaking. This is just a simple Photoshop document to single layer document. In the Media folder within exercises, it's called BLUE_DelightCorporateLogo, and I've already positioned it into place.
Now, I've pre built the lower third, and I can double click to open it up to show you what it looks like. It literally is just two properly positioned text boxes, and you can make as many text boxes as you want just by starting to type. I'm going to go ahead and delete that, and I've already picked the type face and everything. And I'm good to go. And I have the Delight logo. Now remember if I click this button, all I have here is the text. The background is a separate element. I'm going to go ahead and close this and show you how we would bring it in, and then use this to make more lower thirds to ID everybody else in the program. So I'm going to grab the text or simply drop it on to track three make it the same length, I probably put a dissolving so it comes in more gradually. But there you go we're good to go, we have her perfectly positioned over the delight background.
Now what if I need to ID myself? So I can go over here and wait till she introduces me. >> Kitchen. My friend Abba. >> So my friend Abba, so all I want to do is I can copy and paste this or I can even Option-drag it if it's close enough to make a duplicate. And the duplicate looks perfectly the same, and all I need to do is change these two lines of text. I can double click on that. So, all I need to do is add my name and change my title to Guest Chef. And as soon as I close it, you'll see that it's been updated, and I don't have to worry about going back and reinventing the wheel.
So the trick is, to be able to make your lower third once, and then you can simply copy and paste or duplicate. Now since we did a copy and paste it's important to go back into your project and rename the new one, in this case it's no longer Vanessa, it's me. So I'll just type in Abba lower third, and this is great because if I'm doing a one hour show I can just reuse this over and over again. If I built it once and I want to use it in other shows, I can always select any lower third.
Go up under File > Export, and I can export that title as a document that I can import into other programs if I like that look and feel.
