Add a Title in Premiere
Edited by Djinu, VisiHow, Eng
You're watching VisiHow. We're going to show you how to add titles in Adobe Premiere Pro 2015.
Ensure that your sequence or clip has already been dragged from the project window into the timeline.
There are three ways to get to the title menu.
The first way is right-clicking a blank space in the project window.
Move the cursor to "New Item" in the list.
Then, click "Title..." in the expanded menu that appears.
The second way is clicking the bottom-right icon in the project window.
This icon is for "New Item".
Then, you can click "Title..." in the menu that appears.
The third way is clicking "Title" in the horizontal menu at the top of the screen.
Move the cursor to "New Title" in the menu.
Then, click "Default Still..." in the expanded menu that appears.
A pop-up box will appear with the default width and height settings. It will also contain a title under "Name".
You can click "OK".
Otherwise, you can type in a custom name by clicking the text box next to "Name".
After selecting "OK", you can click the video preview in the left half of the screen to add a title.
Let's type "Block And Unblock Skype Contacts".
If the text is too large, you can adjust the font size on the right side of the screen.
Locate the "Font Size", which is currently at "100%".
Click the percentage and drag it to the left or right to adjust your font size so your title fits in the preview window.
You can also add a line break by clicking the entered text.
Then, move the cursor to the desired location and press "enter".
This will create a new line after the word "Unblock".
Align the text by highlighting it and clicking the alignment icons at the top of the video preview.
The text will be centered for this tutorial by clicking "Center".
Let's click the "Vertical Center" alignment.
You will find the vertical alignment icons in the vertical toolbar on the left side of the screen.
Then, click "Horizontal Center".
This will place the title in the middle of the video.
Choose the "Fill" color for the text by clicking the white "Color" box.
The white "Color" box is located under "Fill".
Let's click the color black.
Click "Add" next to "Outer Strokes".
You can add an outer stroke too.
Then click the black "Color" box in the expanded menu under "Outer Strokes".
Click a color.
Let's pick white.
Now, change the size of the outer stroke so it's a little more noticeable.
Do this by clicking the "Size" value underneath "Outer Strokes" in the right-hand column. Then, drag the mouse right or left in order to increase or decrease the size of the stroke. Now that the title is added, you can apply a title style.
You can click one of the "Title Styles" icons.
"Title Styles" are preset styles in Premiere Pro that will instantly change your text. "Title Styles" are located just underneath the video preview. Clicking a style will also change the "Title Properties" values on the right-hand side of the screen.
You can undo applying a "Title Style" by pressing "command" + "Z" on your keyboard.
Then, you can close this window by pressing the red button in the upper-left corner.
To add the title, simply click the title you have just created in the project window.
Then, drag it onto the timeline.
You want to make sure that you're dragging the title into the track above the video into which you're putting the title.
If you drag the title below the video track, the title will not be shown.
If you drag the the title onto the video itself, then you will only see the title and not the video.
