Composite the Text Title with the Shine Title

  1. Arrange the matte, fill, and background in the timeline.

  2. Drag each clip from the Project window to the beginning of the timeline, placing each in the appropriate video track. Drag the background clip to Video track 1 of the timeline; the shine title to video track 2; and the text title to video track 3 (Figure 19). This arrangement is required for the transparency setting used in Step 4(see pages 387-388 of Premiere 6.5: VQS).

  3. Remove transparency settings from the matte clip.

  4. When you add a clip to a superimpose track (Video tracks 2 and higher) Premiere usually applies a transparency setting automatically, guessing the transparency setting, or key type (see pages 369-371 of Premiere 6.5: VQS). Press Ctrl-G (Windows) or Cmd-G (Mac) to open the Transparency Settings dialog box (Figure 20). In the Key type pulldown menu, choose None. Click OK to close the dialog box.

  5. Apply transparency to the fill.

  6. Select the sheen title clip (the fill) in the timeline (Figure 21) and press Ctrl-G (Windows) or Cmd-G (Mac) to open the Transparency Settings dialog box (see page 369-370 of Premiere 6.5: VQS).

  7. Select a Key type.

  8. In the Transparency Settings dialog box, choose Track Matte from the Key type pulldown menu (Figure 22) (see pages 387-388 of Premiere 6.5: VQS).

  9. Preview the transparency.

  10. Under the Sample area, click the Peel button (the third button under the sample image) to see how the effect will look (Figure 23) (see pages 372-373 of Premiere 6.5: VQS). Click OK to close the dialog box and apply the transparency setting.
