Hi All

I was wondering what this best way to do tiles was. I need to produce a video for my company and it needs to have tiles appearing over the film at different places and in diferent ways i.e. top right, middle, etc and fading in and out or possible flying on to screen. I have premier 6.0 but the titles in that don't seem to be up to the task. I need to be able to produce these titles fairly easily as I am a bit unsure of what I am doing.

If anyone could give me ideas I would be very grateful

Kind Regards

With Premiere 6 you have all you need already in the box. Amazon.com sell Antony Bolante's Premiere book that will explain in step-by-step detail exactly how to make all sorts of titles.

Another avenue may be to check out the installation disk that came with your capture card, often there are titling programmes included on the CDROM that have to be loaded individually.

I've always had trouble with Premiere's titles, sad to say, mostly causing crashes during renders. For short stuff, like a name or title fading in/out I use Photoshop so I can keep and control tranparency via the alpha layer etc. If the titles are scrolling or crawling then I use TitleDeko which came bundled with my Raptor card. I only do 'minimalist' titles with legible typefaces and sensible colours (no swoshing zooming, spinning stuff for me!) so between Photoshop and TitleDeko, this gets me through. Hope this is of use.

Hi All

I have managed to get a hold of Title Deko which I previously never had. It seems to be okay for the titles I need. I have also manged to add motion to them which is something new for me. I have almost finished the project which is being shown at a conference next Monday.

Can I just say many thanks indeed to you all for you help, without which I would still be scratching my head.
