I apoligize first as my questions may seem so lame. I understand Premiere CS6 and use it all the time. Now I want to jazz up with some titles not just the ones you can create in Premiere.
Here's where I'm at. I have a 4:30 video I've done in Premiere and this is where I get stuck..
I have a lower third comp that is in AE CS6 and I want to use it in serveral spots in that video. I believe each comp would need to be seperate as the text is different. I understand that. Here's where I get confused.
How do I take the 4:30 video and put into AE and them place each comp (title) at the time location I want.
Do I create a new comp that is the 4:30 video and then place each title comp into that?
One other question. Seems so simple. I have tried a new comp and set the time ength to match the 4:30 video and put the video in it but when I look at the timeline it seems I can't get it to show the whole video like the timeline view is spread out. I tried the slider view on the timeline but can't seem to get the view compressed to show the video from end to end.
Thanks to all! I really appriciate the help this site and members always provide.
Composition length is set in the Composition settings.
You add layers in AE just like you add layers in Premiere Pro, the difference is that each layer can only be a single resource.
You can use Dynamic Link to bring a clip or an entire timeline into AE as a composition.
You can render your lower thirds to a production codec that supports alpha channels.
Great feedback I will try all these and need to take the time to "Learn" rather than jump in it appears.
