Chapter 9. The New Abobe Title Designer > Bringing in a Sample Frame

Bringing in a Sample Frame

Many times, text attributes such as font style, size, and color are determined by their position onscreen. The last thing you want is to place text over a key area of interest in your video, blocking the most important part of your video. The hard part is guessing where the text should be placed. So why guess? Premiere has an option that allows you to view a frame of your video or still graphic as a background image for your text. This is extremely handy in determining the positioning and attributes for your text. It saves a tremendous amount of time by taking the guesswork out of deciding which fonts and colors might look good over a clip you can't see. You can place the appropriate frame in the background to size your titles perfectly every time. This frame is not saved as part of the title. It is visible merely for positioning the text and seeing how the applied attributes will look over the clip. To view the video reference frame from your timeline while working in the Adobe Title Designer, simply click the Show Video check box at the top of the interface. You can even scroll or enter new timecode numbers to view different frames of video before leaving the Title tool.
