Subtitle Tutorial?

Mar 22, 2013 7:39 PM

Hello:

 

I realize the subtitle in the linked clip, below, is very basic, but I'm new at Premiere and have been asked to duplicate the essence of it for a project. That being the case, I'm wondering if somebody might be able to direct me to a tutorial which would allow me to produce more or less the same result.

Thanks for you help.

    I'm really looking to have the text appear as the bar scrolls along the page, as in the example.

    Ok...

    Set up your title (including the transparent bar) in the titler,

    then use a wipe transition.

    note:

    Generally, the term 'subtitle' is used to describe

    on-screen text that mirrors the spoken words.

    What you are doing is simply referred to as a 'title'.

    Why are you giving up?

     

    Open the titler.

    Create a transparent rectangle.

    Add your text on top of the rectangle

    Save your new title.

    Add the new title to the timeline.

    Add a wipe transition to the beginning of the title.

    A wipe transition on my gradient color bar layer?

     

    No, you apply the wipe to the title.  You can also 'reveal' text using a keyframed Crop effect on the title.

    My title is three separate text layers created in photoshop but I could easily combine that to one.

    Either do that, then add the wipe transition to the collapsed .psd,

    or compose the title in Premiere as described above.

     

    Or, use an animated crop as Dr. Jimmy suggests.

    (is it Dr. Jimmy or Mr. Jim?)

    Flatten it.  Use Crop.
