Photoshop would be the option I would likely go with, but it's still going to be manual work--there is no automatic bullet option in any program (well, maybe Word) that I'm aware of.
Another option would be to use the Titler, but instead of creating an individual title for each bullet point, create whole pages of bullets. Then, use the Crop effect or the Edge Wipe Effect and animate either using Hold keyframes. Fewer clips to deal with, and easier to tweak. Here's an article at the PPro Wiki about this same effect: http://premierepro.wikia.com/wiki/FAQ:How_do_I_create_a_bullet_list%3F.
Never tried it but...cant you just copy and paste a bullet list from a Word document into the Titler?
Line by line or whatever.
I use the Wingdings (or is is Webdings) font for such things.
However, a Word-like bullet list function would be a valuable addition to the Titler.
You're right on both counts. Those font sets (1-3 on both) have all sorts of great "bullet points."
I do find it easier to do in AI, because of the Glyph's Palette, so you see what you get, when you type - saves hitting a bunch of keys, then doing Ctrl-z.
I usually do these outside of PP and bring them in as PSD's from PS. They are still editable in their native PSD format in PS.
Doing them in a wordprocessor and Ctrl-c/Ctrl-v works too.
I also agree that Titler could use this function, plus "spell-check," for me at least...
many thanks for all the suggestions.
The single title approach suggested by Colin is working a real treat and adding that extra touch of pro to the training program I'm creating.
Its also relatively easy to create/change as needed.
Once again - thanks.
