Joe, Thank you.
Assuming you are on CC:
Make the first title (Title 01) as you want it to be and set it on the timeline.
Now alt+drag this title to a new tilte (Title 01 Copy 01) in the timeline.
Double click and change the text.
This new title is independant of the first title.
Only thing with that otherwise nifty function is that one ends up with a bunch of titles ..all named the same in the timeline.
Changing it in the Project Window is easy...bu that dosnot get refelected in the timeline instance
...but I meant if one uses a naming protocol to id a title eg. 'Product Name ABC' then wants 'Product NameXYZ' for the next one.
That doesnt happen. Its just 'Product Name ABC Copy1'.
ie. a lot of copies called 'same thing Copy'
OK I see your point.
Be super cool and handy if they could enable a way to rename on copy to make it truly functional but thatjust gets one back to 'Create Title Based on' I guess.
I still have a problem that the title doesn't get positioned properly. It get positioned in the center of the screen. I have it on the botton.
We cant see what you are doing or what option you are using...but you are doing something wrong whatever.
If you make and save a template positioned as you want them all to be..it will open exactly as you left it.
If you copy a title set up as you prefered..it will copy exactly the same way.
If you messed around with Motion to position title...that wont save for each new title.
I'm confused about this. I created a template based on the current template, after I positioned the title manually (I did use the motion positioner previously). But when I create a new tamplate based on the saved profile, it gives me a different font, still positioned in the middle. I'll make a screen recording when I get a chance and post it.
..I positioned the title manually
That's where things went wrong.
You need to position the title in the Titler, then save the template
instead of repositioning them in the Timeline.
Otherwise, you will need to copy/paste attributes for each one
to match the position of your first title.
I don't really use templates much...
I use Ctrl > Drag to create a new title copy, rename it,
open and edit it, then add it to the Timeline pre-positioned.
Title naming convention changes has been a fairly constant Feature Request, by me, since about the time that Premiere dropped TitleDeko. I think that my last one was in CS 5.5, and without CC, I am sort of at the end of my chain.
Maybe you could post one, and articulate the need for better naming conventions?
Also, for some repetitive Title work, do not discount Styles, which can save a great deal of time.
By the way, what version of Premiere?
CS6- Creative Cloud version. Is that what CC means?
Thanks for all of the tips, everyone. I will adjust my methods accordingly.
The version wont make too much difference in this regard.
CC is Creative Cloud Version to which you would know if you are signed up to paying Adobe r for it on a regular basis.
Latest version is called CS7 and offer a slight variation on Title copying (duplicating)
Stick with a template for what you are doing here.
