          One possible solution would be to see if you can make your titles in Photoshop (I know it handles the Hebrew font, though I've not tried in PPro) and then import them to Premiere... it's slightly more work intensive, but should work just fine. Just create your titles on a transparent background, one title in each layer, and then import your entire PSD into Premiere with layers. Then just drag each layer into your timeline where you need it...

            You should also check After Effects. I know that many people are successful using Hebrew fonts in After Effects.

              Welcome to the forum.


              How an Adobe program handles Aribic/Hebrew is usually dependent on the Language of the program and the OS. Search on "Aribic Fonts," will reveal a lot of hits, and especially in the PS Forum. You will also see posts/solutions in the AI, InDesign, and probably some in PrPro and Encore, but I recall fewer such questions there. Just having the fonts on the system is usually not enough to get things correct.


              David's method should work fine, though PS suffers, if the install Language is NOT Aribic, or other right-to-left Language. Most word processors do not have this issue, so the production of the tilte's text in them, and then the use of Copy/Paste usually works just fine.


              Good luck,

                Quick AE question, please: is AE capable of doing right to left text, regardless of the install Language and the OS's Language? If so, then its use would probably be as efficient, as doing the Copy/Paste from a compatible word processor. I know that PS, AI, InDesign and Encore (PrPro too, probably) suffer from issues with the right to left aspect of Aribic and Hebrew.

                  To use Hebrew fonts you should scroll down the Font Family option until you get to Adobe Hebrew.

                  There you have all the Hebrew fonts in Windows and you can use them.

                  I do so for many years and it works perfectly.
