Sorry for the inconvenience. Could you please elaborate the setting the Premiere clip to "Screen" part. Also, please share us more information related to the issue FAQ: What information should I provide when asking a question on this forum?
Screen as in blending mode?
Not all effect from Photoshop? carry over to Pr.
What effects have been applied?
Actually it was exporting the text with the black backdrop and then setting the Premiere clip blend mode to Screen that was getting the accurate result. If I exported the Ps text layer by itself, it would show up in Premiere with the mysterious added stroke as seen in the pics. So I've found a work-around for the time being, thnx!
