If you are creating a lower third for Adobe Premiere Pro, a great place to make it is inside of Adobe After Effects. Here, you can take advantage of text styles so you can create text that best matches your project. In this movie, author Luisa Winters demonstrates how to create a lower third in Adobe After Effects.
- After Effects is intimidating for most people,…including me when I first opened it.…In here, we have plenty of titles…that address After Effects.…So this will not really repeat what the other titles have.…I will just address a way that you have…to incorporate After Effects…into your Premiere Pro work flow.…So there will be plenty of other option in After Effects…that I will not mention.…Go ahead and open After Effects and create a new project.…
Once you have your new project, create a new composition.…So Composition, New Composition,…I'm gonna leave it at 1920 by 1080,…which is what we had before,…and 30 seconds in duration is fine.…You can give your composition any name you want,…I'll just name it Title 01, and click OK.…Let's go ahead and type some text in here.…You can grab the Type tool,…and then just simply click in the composition.…
Now you can write anything you want.…I'm gonna write Adobe After Effects.…To select all of the text, you can double click…anywhere in the source name here in the timeline.…That selects all of the characters.…
