    Is there a way to put multiple text objects in the same frame but with different timings?

      I am editing a video of my self talking to the camera and would like to impose text on the screen to highlight what I am saying. When I am discussing each point I would like them to appear as text separately.

       

      Imagine the video of me standing and talking to the camera

       

      "Today I am going to talk about travelling in the North of Scotland and give advice on how to get by. I will talk about the best value hostels " - the word 'hostels' appears first at the top right of the screen

       

      "I will describe the best routes to take" - the word 'routes' now appears under the the word 'hostels'

       

      "And finally, I will describe the best places to eat traditional Scottish cuisine" - the word 'food' now appears under 'routes'.

       

      Apologies if this seems basic but the documentation is focuses on using one title or the set effects. I suppse I am trying to create a presentaiton style of video.

       

      Cheers

          The quickest approach that comes to mind is

           

          a. create 3 separate titles in the Titler (Text Menu/New Text/Default Text)....

          food, goes on Video 4

          routes, goes on Video 3

          hostels, goes on Video 2

          Arrange them so that when viewed they are viewed as

          hostels

          routes

          food

          b. Move hostels (Video 2) to where you want it to start in relation to

          "Today I am going to talk about travelling in the North of Scotland and give advice on how to get by. I will talk about the best value hostels " - the word 'hostels' appears first at the top right of the screen

          Move routes (Video 3) to where you want it to start in relation to

          "I will describe the best routes to take" - the word 'routes' now appears under the the word 'hostels'

          Move food (4) to where you want it to start in relation to

          "And finally, I will describe the best places to eat traditional Scottish cuisine" - the word 'food' now appears under 'routes'.

          c. When all that is done to this stage, it might look like this...

           

          Title2.JPG

          Now to arrange and drag out track content so that we see

          hostels

          then hostels + routes

          then hostel + routes + food

          when they are supposed to appear in conjunction with the video's dialog.

           

          The final workspace should look like

           

          Title3.JPG

           

          Please give this a try. And, do not hesitate to let me know if you need clarification on anything described.

            Thanks! That's done the trick and was very simple. Very similar to editing sound tracks - quite new to video editing in adobe but trying to get serious

             

            Thanks for all the helpful images you copied in as well -  I couldn't find any documentation on adding video tracks or in using expert mode.

             

            If anyone like me is new to adobe premiere elements, I found a tutorial on youtube that used video tracks in expert mode https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XMFGWNFYrbA

             

            Cheers
