I've been trying to create a certain font in Adobe Premiere Pro with no success. The font is basically a white rectangular text box with transparent letters inside of it. However, it seems like the program doesn't have the ability to "color fill" the text box containing the transparent letters. Does anyone know how to do this? (It would be helpful if another program could do it, such as Adobe Photoshop, Adobe After Effects, or Adobe Illustrator, if Adobe Premiere cannot.) Than you!
Negative space requires to employ mattes and such. You cannot find any solution, because you have things backward. You are not filling the surroundings, you subtract the letter contours from e.g. a solid area. Read the help files on the Track Matte effect in Premiere or the respective equivalent techniques in AE.
