The real power of Adobe Premiere Pro lies in its effects. One of these effects is the Text effect. This effect is similar to WordArt in MS Word and other applications. However, these text effects can be animated throughout the video. If you wish to add text and text effects to Adobe Premiere Pro, then please read through this article for the procedure.
How to add and create animated Text Effects in Premiere Pro
The procedure to add text and text effects to Adobe Premiere Pro is as follows:
Add text to Adobe Premiere Pro
- Open Adobe Premiere Pro.
- Either Open or Create a new project file in Adobe Premiere Pro.
- Upload your media files or create your output file in the timeline.
- Bring the play hit to the exact point from which you wish for the text effect to appear.
- Now, you will notice a few elements just left of the timeline column. One of those elements is shaped T. T represents Text. Please click on it.
If you hold the click, you will notice two type tools – Type tool and Vertical type tool. Please select the Type tool.
If you click on the Text element once (without holding), it will invoke the Type tool by default.
Now, you can type the text at any position of your choice in the Program window (which is just above the timeline window).
As soon as you type the text, you will notice a pink-colored surplus layer in the timeline window. The text will appear from when you entered it, to a few seconds later. You can stretch or contract the layer for the text to increase or decrease the duration of the appearance of the text.
