  • Click on the "Create" button and your videos will appear in the track at the bottom
  • Note: After your project is set up, within your editing workspace, click the blue “+” icon on the upper left of the window to add more titles or media or to create a voiceover
  • Below the “+” button is the project panel, where you can see all your project media and organize it

Creating Titles

There are two ways to create your own titles and edit motion graphic templates to match your own brand: using a default title or using a pre-built title design.

Use a default title:

  • Double-click on the Title button and a default title will appear in the center of the monitor. You can customize the font, style, size, character spacing, line spacing, and baseline shift, and also adjust the color fill, outline, and shadow from the Edit tab
  • Trim or lengthen the duration of the title by dragging the orange handles in the timeline
  • Scale, rotate, and change the title’s position directly in the preview monitor using the transform box

Use animated title designs:

  • Search for title styles and motion graphics by keyword from the Title panel on the right
  • You can edit the text and choose a new font, style, or color from the Edit tab
  • In addition to title templates, you will also find free transition and element templates from the panel, all of which you can customize for your video
  • You can also choose to search Adobe Stock for thousands of additional motion graphic templates to use in your video
