Polishing Your Skills: How to Make a Title Shine in Adobe Premiere 6.5

By Antony Bolante

Why settle for a dull title when you can make it shine?

I mean literally—and not a static reflection, but one that sweeps across the seemingly burnished surface of your text or graphics. With Adobe Premiere 6.5 and a little know-how—brought to you by the Premiere 6.5: Visual QuickStart Guide—you can make a lackluster title gleam. And while you're at it, you'll polish your Premiere skills as well.

As you'll discover, the Premiere 6.5: Visual QuickStart Guide distills a dense, multifaceted program in the time-tested QuickStart tradition. In other words, it breaks down each aspect of the program into bite-sized, step-by-step, fully illustrated tasks. In this tutorial, you'll get the chance to integrate what you've learned to create a complex, and well, polished final result. I think you'll find that the Premiere 6.5: Visual QuickStart Guide, like Premiere itself, is more than the sum of its parts.

In this tutorial, you'll use Adobe Premiere 6.5's most celebrated new feature, the Adobe Title Designer. But more importantly, you'll use it in conjunction with Premiere's long-established motion and transparency settings. And although you should be able to follow along without it, you can consult your Premiere 6.5: Visual QuickStart Guide along the way. I've included references to the pertinent chapters and page numbers.

Now on with the tutorial; it's your time to shine.
