    Premiere elements 12 Re-using (self made) titles.

    Stephan-Katka

      Hello,

       

      My name is Stephan and i am new here. I used to work with an other program but i had enough of the eternal problems. I decided to buy Premiere elements 12 (Dutch version) and i am very glad i did so.

       

      My question is about the use of titles. I made a small title and would like to copy that and use it a little bit further in the movie. But changing the tekst in the first title also changes the tekst in the second (or other copied) titles. In some way the parts are linked withe eachother and this is of course not what i would like. I tried to change the name of the title, but still all the other titles change also. What can i do about this?

       

      Also i made a title myself with some animation and i would like to uste that in other movies. I saw something from Elements 11 in which they said that you must select the title and export it as an title file. In 12 i can not do that. The Export button can not be selected.

       

      Can someone help me??

       

      Many thanks, Stephan

          What computer operating system are you running Premiere Elements 12 on? If you have not already, please update from 12 to 12.1 via a project's Help Menu/Update. Just background information for now.

           

          The immediate issues...

           

          "Change one title change others" is a classical happening since you are working with titles with the same file name. In Project Assets, right click the title's thumbnail, select duplicate to duplicate the title, and then drag the duplicate to the Timeline.

           

          The secret to success in saving the title created in the Titler is to

          a. With Titler closed, go to Expert workspace, Project Assets, and select/highlight the thumbnail for the title created in the Titler.

          b. now when you go to File Menu/Export/Title, Title will be active and ready for use.

          Thank you.

            Hello ATR,

             

            Many thanx for your answer. I have now something to try and see if that is working. I am running Premiere elements 12 on win7 (original and updated). I am not sure if i have version 12.1. I must check. About saving titles created in the titler, i think i tried it the way as you described in a and b. But i was not able to select EXPORT.

            I'll let you know soon if i succeeded.

             

            Greetings, Stephan

                Yes,

                 

                I succeeded and i understand now how it works. I am used to copy titles from the timeline and paste them on an other place and change the text. Like you told me you have to duplicate the title in the PROJECT ASSET (in Dutch called PROJECT ELEMENTEN).

                 

                Again thanks for your explanation.
