Premiere Pro Tutorial : Create and Animate a Lower Third Title

 Lower third titles are a great way to add text and graphics to the bottom of your video footage. They can be used to identify speakers, display locations, or provide other relevant information.

To create a lower third title in Premiere Pro, follow these steps:

  1. Create a new title by clicking on the Title tool in the toolbar.
  2. Type your text in the title box.
  3. Adjust the font, size, and color of your text.
  4. To add a background to your title, create a new layer by clicking on the Add New Layer button in the Title panel.
  5. Select the Rectangle tool in the Toolbar and draw a rectangle on the new layer.
  6. Fill the rectangle with a color or image.
  7. To position your title, drag it to the desired location on the canvas.
  8. To animate your title, open the Essential Graphics panel.
  9. Click on the Effects tab and select the Motion effect.
  10. In the Motion effect settings, adjust the position, scale, and rotation of your title over time.
  11. You can also use other effects to animate your title, such as Opacity, Transform, and Color.

Here are some tips for creating and animating lower third titles in Premiere Pro:

  • Use a font that is easy to read and that matches the overall style of your video.
  • Make sure that your title is large enough to be easily read, but not so large that it blocks the view of your video footage.
  • Choose a color for your title that contrasts with the background of your video footage.
  • Use animation to make your title more visually appealing. You can animate the position, scale, rotation, opacity, color, and other properties of your title.
  • Be careful not to overdo the animation. Too much animation can be distracting and make your title difficult to read.

Here is an example of how to create a simple animated lower third title in Premiere Pro:

  1. Create a new title and type your text in the title box.
  2. Adjust the font, size, and color of your text.
  3. Create a new layer and add a rectangle to the layer.
  4. Fill the rectangle with a dark color.
  5. Position your title at the bottom of the canvas.
  6. Open the Essential Graphics panel and click on the Effects tab.
  7. Select the Motion effect.
  8. In the Motion effect settings, adjust the position of your title so that it slides in from the bottom of the screen.
  9. Adjust the duration of the animation.
  10. Click on the Play button to preview the animation.

Once you are happy with the animation, you can add the lower third title to your video footage by dragging it from the Essential Graphics panel to the Timeline.

You can also use pre-made lower third title templates in Premiere Pro. To do this, open the Essential Graphics panel and click on the Browse tab. In the Browse tab, you will find a variety of lower third title templates that you can use.

To use a pre-made lower third title template, simply drag it from the Essential Graphics panel to the Timeline. You can then customize the template by editing the text, font, size, color, and other properties.

Creating and animating lower third titles in Premiere Pro is a great way to add professional-looking graphics to your videos. With a little practice, you can create lower third titles that are both visually appealing and informative.
