Simplistic CINEMATIC Title In Premiere Pro UNDER 5 Minutes

January 15, 2020

Today you will learn how to create this cinematic title in Premiere Pro. We gonna start off by creating a new text. So let’s head to “Graphics”, “Edit”, click right here, and select “Text”. So the first thing I’d like to do is center my text. To center your text vertically and horizontally just click on these two icons next to each other. Then we can change things like the text size and what font we would like to use. After that I usually check once more if my text is really centered by clicking on the icons I’ve mentioned earlier. Now that we’ve created our text let’s head back to the “Editing” tab. With our text placed on our timeline we gonna add a basic fading transition first. To do so, simply left-click on your text once and press “CTRL + D” on your Windows machine or “CMD + D” on your Mac. I like to adjust the fade of the start and the end to about 1 second. This really give the fading a cinematic feel to it. Next up we gonna create a mask. So make sure your text is still selected, move on to your “Effect controls panel” and click on this small square icon right below the “Opacity” tab. Now, let’s remove the “Mask Feather” of the mask first. So set this value to 0. After that adjust the mask so it will only cover a specific amount of letters. In this example I will split the word “cinematic” into three parts. The first one being “N E M A”. Now, let’s copy or text by holding down “ALT” on or Windows or Mac keyboard, selecting the text and moving it above the original one. Within the copy we will adjust the mask so only “C I” at the beginning will be covered by our mask. To adjust the mask again make sure your text copy is selected and click on “Mask” within the “Effect controls panel”. Alright, now we repeat the process of copying of our text and adjusting the mask one more time with the last remaining letters. Great, we are almost done. After all the masking let’s adjust the position of the two text copies so the fade-in of each text segment starts differently. If you want the fade-out to do the same simply leave your text just like that. But if you want everything to fade-out at the same time at the end, make sure to adjust the length of each text so they are all the same. Now we can finish off the text animation by nesting all our text elements together. To do so, select all 3 text elements, then right-click on them and select “Nest” and hit “OK” to apply these changes. Place the time indicator at the beginning of the nested sequence, making sure it is selected, and animate the “Scale” within the “Effects control panel” while automatically setting a keyframe at the start of the sequence. Then move on to the end of the sequence and adjust the “Scale” to 110% and automatically create another keyframe to create this finishing touch scaling animation.

    Also, at 2:03 I said „hold down the „ALT“ key on your Mac keyboard“ this only applies to older Apple devices, on the new ones it’s the „option“ key.

    Is Premiere Pro a good cutting software to change, if you used Vegas about 1 year?
