Title Tool

New in this release of Premiere Pro CC  2017 | April 2017

The new Title tool in Premiere Pro is based on the Adobe framework for working with text and graphics familiar from Photoshop and After Effects. The new Title tool offers a simple and intuitive way of adding text directly on the Program monitor. It’s fast and easy to change size and position of your title, change color and font type, or use different alignment options.

Assign a title as a master graphic and every iteration of that graphic through your sequence gets linked. Alter the master graphic, like changing the font, color or size, and see that alteration ripple through all instances created from the master graphic.

Titles and Graphics created in the Program monitor are automatically added to your sequence, saving you time and adding flexibility to the creative process.

All controls for the new Title tool can be found in the new Essential Graphics Panel, part of the new Graphics Workspace.

Motion Graphics Templates

New in this release of Premiere Pro CC  2017 | April 2017

Typically, motion graphics specialists create templates in After Effects which are used by editors in Premiere Pro. Video editors often don’t have the bandwidth or expertise to create dynamic, professional graphics, or graphics packages such as titles, lower 3rds, bumpers, and closing credits. However, they want the ability to change core properties quickly and efficiently within the graphics throughout a given project.

Premiere Pro allows editors working with Motion Graphics templates created in After Effects to change some variables (dictated by the After Effects artist) such as text, color, size, layout, or mood of the motion graphic without changing the overall aesthetic. Editors and motion graphics artists can easily share Motion Graphics templates through CC libraries integration. 

To learn more, see Essential Graphics Panel.

Essential Sound Panel

New in this release of Premiere Pro 2017 | April 2017

With shorter turnaround times and shrinking budgets, many video editors mix their audio without engaging a professional audio engineer. The Essential Sound panel in this release of Premiere Pro empowers video editors to easily handle mixing techniques for their projects without the need for audio expertise. The Essential Sound panel can be found as part of the Audio workspace inside Premiere Pro. Using this panel, you can easily designate whether an audio clip is music, effects, dialogue, or ambience and choose are given straight forward audio parameters, appropriate to the selection made, so you can achieve optimal sound quickly.
