How do you create a custom background for your title graphic with Illustrator? In this movie, author Luisa Winters walks you through how to create a custom background for your titles with Adobe Illustrator.
- Most video editors have never opened Illustrator,…and I don't really blame them.…Most of the time Illustrator is used…to create logos and other vector graphics…that even though we use in a project,…we are not really in charge of producing.…So for most editors, there is really no need…to open Illustrator.…However, for the few of us that actually use Illustrator,…we see the tremendous potential of this program.…And after using it for just a couple of months,…most of us can not believe that we have worked…all this time without it.…
Go ahead and open Illustrator and create a new document.…From the Profile, choose Video and Film,…and from the Size just choose HDTV 1080.…That's gonna give you a document that is 1920 by 1080.…You can click on Advanced,…and you can choose a different color mode,…you can choose to see the transparency grid or not,…I usually choose not to,…and you can change the preview mode or other things.…
Right now all we have to do is click Ok.…Now you will see the tools here on the left,…and you will see the icons on some panels here on the right.…
