Are your titles text titles created in the project's Titler workspace?
After the Titler is closed and you return to the editing workspace and you want to apply transitions...
a. What is the nature of the pair for that transition on one video track - - title file/video file or title file/photo file or title file/title file or other? What transition(s)? What is the transition alignment?
Are you using Premiere Elements 13 Mac tryout or purchased product?
Let us start here and then decide what next.
I have attached a screenshot for your reference. I have tried all combinations of title file/video file; title file/photo etc.
The transition is highlighted; fade in by line. Alignment makes no difference.
I am creating the title within the workspace. Initially I had tried copy and pasting text into premiere; however after your post I tried this test version with same error. I have the purchased product. Brand new.
All help much appreciate. Thank you.
I will be back to your thread shortly. But I think that I got detoured by not reading your thread title.
Instead my eyes hit
I am unable to apply any transitions to my title text.
You mention titles and transitions in the body of the thread, yet in the title of the thread you are referring to text animations in the project's Titler.
Your screenshot in post 2 is definitely a Titler text animation matter.
Back shortly focusing on Premiere Elements 13 Mac Text Animations in the Titler.
Great thank you, sorry for the miscommunication, I am new to Premiere.
1. I am strictly an Elements Windows users, and this is my second hand information on where the Adobe Premiere Elements Prefs file is in Mac.
I want you find that file and delete it. I believe that path to it to be
Users\Owner\Libraries\Application Support\Adobe\Premiere Elements\13.0.
2. Start a new project. Create your title in the Titler as follows.
a.. Text Menu/New Text/Default Text
b.. Type your text in the Text Section of the Titler. Select the Selection Tool at the bottom of that section and then click on the text
on screen to select it and obtain a bounding box around the text.
c. Switch to the Animation Section of the Titler. Click and drag the Text Animation named Fade In By Line from the animation display of choice area
into the text on screen or select Fade In By Line, scroll to the bottom of the text animations, and click Apply.
d. Close the Titler.
e. Render the Timeline content by pressing the Render button above the Timeline, and observe you text animation result.
How far in the process did you get? Same problem as reported? Or this time it worked?
that seemed to have done the trick!
thanks for your time and effort.
Wonderful news. Great job in sorting through the details.
Another interesting question that comes up from time to time is how to apply text animation to more than one line of text in one title file.
We can go over that for version 13 when you are ready for that. The key is not to close the Titler for each line. You want to end
up with more than one line of text in one title file rather than more than one title file.
