Hello everyone. I'm trying to create plugin that writes filename and timecode on clip in sequence. And i'm stuck in the beginning. How to write text on video? Can't find it in premiere SDK guide. Is this possible?
I have Premiere CS6 and Premiere CS6 SDK with Microsoft Visual Studio Express 2012 on Windows 7 x64.
The SDK doesn't offer this functionality (eg an API to the Titler).
You'll have to use some other non-Adobe way to do it like OS text to bitmap libraries (bare in mind you'll need to port for Mac and Windows) or some other multi-host text to bitmap library package (that isn't GPL if you plan on selling it).
Thanks for reply. Excellent thinking - use text to bitmap libraries:) I'm not going to sell it, and if I will be able someday to program it, it will be free on the internet.
To get the clip name and timecode, you can use the UtilitySuite available to After Effects effect plug-ins running in Premiere Pro, built using the AE SDK. This post has a little info on using that suite:
