Text Overlay in Adobe Premier Pro



Want to share a video on YouTube or on your blog or any other website but you want to put your credits on it so that everyone knows who the author is?

Achieving a Text Overlay effect in Adobe Premier Pro is actually more simple then you might think.

  1. Start a new project in Adobe Premier Pro
  2. Import your source footage by clicking on File -> Import
  3. From the project tab, drag your source footage to the timeline into the video1 slot
  4. Click on Title -> New Title -> Default Still
  5. Click OK
  6. A new window should have popped up with text editing tools. Write your desired text. Mine says chris-fletcher.com, then close that window.
  7. You should now have Title 01 ( if you left the new title with the default name ) in your Project tab. Drag that to the Video2 timeline spot. and expand it to the length of your source footage.
  8. You’ll now see that when you scroll from the beginning to the end of your footage that your text overlay is present.

To finish up just export with your preferred output settings and you’re done.

This is one of my first attempts at writing a tutorial for Adobe Premier Pro. Hopefully some of you found it helpful. Please let me know if I have missed anything or if anyone needs a little more clarity.
