When you want to share information with your audience and hold their attention, graphics and titles can be the most effective way to do it. Perhaps you’re announcing a new channel, or describing a location for a travel-themed vlog. Including text information onscreen and adding movement with animated graphics can be an engaging way to inform your audience.
Graphics can help your audience understand complex ideas. There are several ways to use them:
- Lower thirds are often used to introduce a speaker’s name and role. They can also be used to introduce the names of locations, products, and events.
- Titles can confirm specific details that you share on camera. They can add detail, and direct attention to further information.
- Animated graphics add visual interest and keep your audience engaged. A familiar opening animation helps your audience recognize your content.
Create dynamic graphic designs
In the Adobe Premiere Pro Essential Graphics panel, you’ll find lots of prebuilt motion graphics templates that you can adjust for your project and brand. Motion graphics templates can include graphics, text, and preset animation.
The Essential Graphics panel offers a complete set of graphic — and title — creation tools. You can even create your own personalized motion graphics with animation and multiple layers.
Work your fonts
The font you choose when designing a title can have an enormous impact on the mood it conveys. Adobe Creative Cloud includes thousands of font options to choose from. You can access them in the Essential Graphics panel while creating or editing your graphics.
Add graphics to libraries to use them again
Creative Cloud Libraries can store graphics that sync automatically wherever you log in with your Creative Cloud account. You can create and browse libraries in the Essential Graphics panel. You might create a library for the graphics you’ll use on a particular channel so you have a one-stop shop with the right designs to use for your next piece of content.
