Premiere Pro CC 2017.1 Graphics Panel Explained
The latest release of Premiere Pro is great vlog editing software. The latest version is Premiere Pro CC 2017.1 and has a completely new way for us to make our titles. It’s now known as the graphics panel and access can be found at the top of the screen in the menu bar, as shown in the first image.
graphics → new layer → (choose your option)
As you can see, you also have the choice to create a rectangle, an ellipse or import any graphic image/video file on your computer.
The timeline panel needs to be selected to access the new layer option, simply click on any empty space in the timeline and you’re good to select your new layer option.
After making your selection, Premiere Pro places a new layer on the top video track at the position of the play head.(1) The new clip is automatically highlighted. Next you need select the type tool (3) If you can’t see the tools panel, go to the top menu bar again and choose
window → tools
with the text tool selected, click and drag to highlight the ‘new layer text’ in the program monitor (2) and start typing your jaw dropping title. Now you can design your text like there’s no tomorrow using the controls in the effects control panel (4) position the text anywhere on the screen, scale it to your preferred size, even make it see through using the opacity controls. If this panel is blank and has no visible properties to adjust the title, click on the new text layer clip in the timeline to see all your adjustable elements. Don’t forget, the elements are keyframeable, so you can make your text fly around the screen, just like a pro YouTuber.
