Convert your Legacy Titles into Source Graphics that can be saved with your projects and edited using the modern titling and design tools in the Essential Graphics panel.

Please note: The Legacy Titler will no longer be available in the next major release of Premiere Pro (v. 23.0). 

If you have not done so already, we strongly recommend transitioning to the Essential Graphics panel for your titling workflows.

Convert Legacy Titles when opening a project

When opening a project containing Legacy Titles, a dialog asks if you would like to update your Legacy titles to Source graphics.  A copy of all Legacy Titles will remain in the project, next to the converted Source Graphic, and Source Graphics will replace all Legacy Titles used in sequences.

You can convert Legacy Titles to Source Graphics at any time using Graphics > Upgrade Legacy Title. Or set keyboard shortcuts for these commands using the keyboard shortcuts panel. For more information, see Keyboard shortcuts in Premiere Pro.

What are Source Graphics?

Source Graphics are Essential Graphics that work in a similar way to Legacy Titles: 

  • They have a project item.
  • You can track usage through the metadata column for Video Usage.
  • Edits made to the project item or an associated track item will ripple through all track items.

Source Graphics do not support the Responsive Design – Time feature.

Why upgrade Legacy Titles to Source Graphics?

The Legacy Titler workflow in Premiere Pro will be retired in 2022. Premiere Pro 23.0 will no longer support legacy titles. We strongly encourage you to move to the new titling tools in the Essential Graphics panel to become familiar with the new capabilities and smoothly transition to these workflows.

If you have projects with Legacy Titles, use the following procedure to convert them to Source Graphics that you can then edit using the Essential Graphics panel.


As a best practice, Adobe recommends making a copy of projects before upgrading Legacy Titles.

Upgrade Legacy titles

To upgrade Legacy Titles into Source Graphics:

  1. Select the Legacy Title in the Project Panel.

  2. Do one of the following:

    • To upgrade a single Legacy Title, click Graphic > Upgrade Legacy Title.
    • To upgrade All Legacy Titles, click Graphics > Upgrade All Legacy Titles.

     To compare the upgraded Source Graphic to your Legacy Title, duplicate your Legacy Title on the track and only upgrade one of the copies in the Project panel. This way, you can make a side-by-side comparison of the results.

Premiere Pro adds a Source graphic with the suffix "-Upgraded" to the Project panel and replace all instances of the Legacy Title on tracks with the Source Graphic. If you used a Legacy Title in multiple sequences with different frame sizes, Premiere Pro will create multiple instances of the upgraded Source graphic to match each individual sequence.


Make sure you quality check the upgraded graphics, as not all characteristics of a Legacy Title translate perfectly into Source Graphics.  Rolls, crawls, tracking and rotated text are not translated. There may also be other minor differences.

How accurately does Upgrade Legacy Titles work?

Upgrade Legacy Titles does not provide a perfect copy of the original title. Source Graphics use a more modern codebase and do not share all of the same attributes as the old Legacy Titles.

  • Font
  • Font Size
  • Font Style
  • Outer strokes with Edge type
  • Underline

Text box wrapping

  • Shadow substring (different shadows on different characters will take the shadow of the first character and apply it to the whole text)
  • Radial/Linear text gradient substring (same as with shadow substring)

  • The positioning of multiple lines when there are different font sizes used
