The cable company will probably want a video file that supports alpha channel.
The tutorial page here is a good start to learn the fundamentals. The graphic you are referring to is commonly called a lower third.
Thanks Curt !
your link took me to Adobe Tutorials , I know the basics of Premiere , i even made some music videos, but i had difficulties figuring creating such a thing.
The text part and creating the picture attached to it is easy, but how can the whole page besides the text can be transparent ?
I would ask the station what file formats they accept that support alpha channel.
When you put text over video in premiere the thing at work that makes everything transparent except the text is an alpha ch. Pr handles this all for you internally and makes it very easy. But not all export formats support an embedded alpha ch. (DV does not for example). So rather than telling you everyone that does, it would be easier to ask the tv station what format they want; and its very likely Pr can export to that format.
Thanks Curt !
Sorry I forgot to mention that , he asked me to make it .MOV
i believ its Quicktime
Give them a .mov with an alpha channel. (millions +)
Create it in AEFX is what I would do after an edit in PPRO
BTW : You will need to know where they want the graphics positioned so they allow the BG material to broadcast without being infringed. eg Upper thirds, lower thirds.
They are sure to have a guide sheet regarding this
