1. Download the practice file project and open it in Premiere Pro. Make sure that Graphics workspace is selected from the top menu. Chose the Type Tool from the Tools panel.

4. Type in "Pragmatica" and click on the font name "Pragmatica Extended" once it appears in the font list.

Tip: When "Pragmatica" font is not available on your computer you can download/activate it from Adobe Fonts by clicking on the Creative Cloud icon.

 

5. In the Align and Transform section of the Essential Graphics panel click on the value 100 and increase it until the title fills up the screen.

9. Click and drag the clip of your title graphic from video track V2 up to video track V3.

11. To create a copy of the Truck video, click on the clip in video track V1 and with Option or ALT key pressed on your keyboard drag it onto video track V2.

12. To trim the video clip on V1 move the mouse over the left edge of the clip until the cursor arrow changes to a bracket arrow, then click and shrink the clip to the 8 second mark on the timeline.

13. Click into the search field on the Effects panel and type "Track" to find the Track Matte Key effect.

Tip: The Effects panel is by default part of the top left panel group on the Editing workspace. Click on Effects to bring the panel to the foreground.

15. On the Effect Controls panel find the Track Matte Key section, then select Video 3 from the Matte drop-down menu.
