Add motion titles

You can design custom titles and graphics with Adobe Premiere Elements. Titles serve many purposes, from identifying people and places in your movie to providing movie-style credits. You can create your own title text for your clip or use a Title template.

Motion titles are ready-to-use and customizable. They are preloaded with animated graphics, stylized text, and background styles.

  1. In the Quick view timeline, drag the current time indicator (CTI) to the clip to which you want to add a title.

  2. On the Action bar, click Titles & Text.

  3. From the Titles & Text panel, select a category of your choice from Motion Titles, pick a theme, and then a template.
