Creating a simple title

First, you'll create a simple, text-only title. In this exercise, you will add a sample frame to the Title Designer window, add text, change the text attributes, add a shadow, and kern the text.

Importing graphics and titles

You can import graphics to use in titles from other software such as Adobe Photoshop (3.0 or later) and Adobe Illustrator. You can import entire title sequences created in other software, such as Adobe After Effects. You can also import an individual layer from a multilayer Photoshop file. Note that Premiere 6.5 supports 8-bit TIFF images, but does not support 16-bit TIFF images created in Photoshop or other graphic applications.

For more information on importing graphics and animations for titles, see Chapter 2, “Capturing and Importing Source Clips,” in the Adobe Premiere 6.0 User Guide.

An alpha channel is a fourth channel in an RGB image that defines which parts of the image are transparent or semitransparent. Many programs, such as Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop, use alpha channels. Premiere preserves alpha channels when you import graphics that include them.

For more information on using alpha channels in titles, see “Adding a title to a project” in Chapter 6, and “Using the Alpha Channel key” in Chapter 7 of the Adobe Premiere 6.0 User Guide.

You can use the Edit Original command in Premiere to open a clip in its original application, such as Adobe After Effects, so that you can edit it and then have those changes automatically incorporated into the current project without exiting Premiere or replacing files.

For more information, see “Editing a clip in its original application” in Chapter 3 of the Adobe Premiere 6.0 User Guide.
