I'm trying to do something in Premiere Elements 11.
I have a text layer/track with four paragraphs of text that is over the video. Part of the video is a blinking text "marker" (not sure how it's called, I mean the thing that you have in every text editor or when typing text online). I want each paragraph to appear with a blink of the "marker". I thought of doing this by having four text "blocks" and have each start when I want. If I copy the text "block", then edit one of the text "blocks", it changes the text in all of them.
I haven't tried creating a new text "block" yet, but if this works (I imagine it does) then it means aligning them manually which doesn't make sense. I assume there's an easier way to do this and I'm missing it.
Thanks for any suggestions.
Have you created the blinking "text marker" graphic? That will be your biggest challenge.
Once you get that, it's easy.
I'll clarify. The "text marker" is not something I need to create. It is the video itself i.e. part of the video is of a big screen with someone typing text. There was the text on the screen that was being videoed and there's the extra text I needed to create to go over that, which is separate. Anyway I just tried some things and eventually managed to solve the problem.
If you've found a solution, please mark this question as answered. Thanks!
