    Beginner tips

    fliiper

      Hi guys

       

      Iam using Adobe Premiere Pro CS3 to create edit a video for a project in university

       

      What i want to do is create title pages

       

      Modify audio - there is alot of background noise in which i would like to remove ( i have already tried using the denoiser effect, with no great change to audio)

       

      Also is it posibile to encorporate text in the video?

       

      Sorry if these are really basic questions but if anyone can suggest resources i would be very greatful!

       

      Thanks alot

      Phill

          A great place to start is the PrPro-Wiki, which has tutorials for PrPro. I'd recommend not just looking at those particularly for CS3, as one can easily interpret from earlier versions, and also from tutorials for CS4.

           

          Another site for tutorials, is Curt Wrigley's. Many are for earlier versions of Pr/PrPro, but they are easy to interpolate. I even link to these for users on PrElements.

           

          As for your particular questions, most can be done right in PrPro. You will want to read up on the Titler, for the text. It is a great application, and is right in PrPro.

           

          The Audio clean up can be a bit more involved. I use Adobe Audition for this, but that is a separate program, with much more power.

           

          Good luck,

            Here is an ARTICLE on Audio noise, that might prove useful.

             

            Good luck,

              Here is a look at Titler, so that you can see some of the Tools available there:

              Titler_Text_Blocks_01.jpg

              Titler will allow you to create all sorts of Titles, and they can be used in many ways, in PrPro. The program comes with several Title Templates, that can be used, and modified. From the main Toolbar, choose Title>Based on Template and then look at the Templates in the Library.

               

              Good luck, and after reading up on Titler, if you get stuck, just tell us what you are doing, and what is not working for you. There are some little "tricks" in Titler, but without a background, they would be worthless now.

               

              Also, there are several Titler tutorials on Curt's site, linked above, and some on the PrPro-Wiki too.

               

              Last, Curt Wrigley has published a great book, Adobe Classroom in a Book Adobe Premiere Pro CS3, Adobe Press. He also did the CS4 version too. He covers almost every general topic in PrPro, and does it very well. I highly recommend that book.
