I am new to Video Editing.
I like the Premiere Page Peel transition but how can I get a title to appear with the second clip? i.e. Behind the page.

Hope someone can help

Before you apply the page peel, yoou can make the second film with the title overlay. Render the clip (export movie) or create a virtual clip and import and insert this one onto V1b. So your title and second clip are seen as 1 video track.

I guess that's why i should do...

Hope this helps,

Yep
Make an AVI at the resolution of your output as the title.
DVWorld (mag) is giving away a full working version of Hollywood FX which meshes neatly with Premiere 4.2 and 5. It is easier than downloading from Pinnacle.
Definitions of the word "working" are Pinnacle's. Look on their user's websboard for the veracity of such. But don't hold your breath.
Settings in projects fall of the edge at an alarming rate. But usually after you have saved and reloaded projects.
It pays to check because preview and render differ.
But Hey! its worth every penny of 5GBP plus registration. But not a whole lot more.
Great transitions though. Peels etc galore.

Consider COOL 3D it has some wonderful 3D titling effects, outputs as bitmaps and bitmap sequences or AVI's.
Or use one the free paint packages to generate files. I extract stills and peel and tumble them to good effect. Paste inside views in window panes at appropriate angles - all in paint packages. Save as Tiff or Targa uncompressed at greater than 720X576 (4x3) resolution to avoid multipre losses.
Try different codecs in Video settings, get the bitrates high and tinker.
Good luck.

Doug, depending on the sort of action there is on the second page with the title on it, you could save the first frame as a bitmap. Scrub the timeline with alt pressed to combine title and video,pull down file, export frame, save as bmp, re-import bitmap to project, put on timeline before second page clip, stretch to required length, put the page turn transition over the still image. You will now have a page turn where the action resumes after the turn has completed, or it can be adjusted so that the action starts after the page has cleared the lettering.

This obviously depends very much on the effect you want and wouldn't be appropriate for every situation, but it is much quicker than rendering, exporting video and recapturing. I have used it and it gives an effect of the still printed page coming to life.

Thanks to you both for the information.
I was expecting that Premiere would have some sort of layering which can be controlled.
I will see which of your suggestions I prefer.
Thanks once again.
