Premiere Pro is a video editing software that offers a range of tools to enhance your videos. One of the most common ways to improve your video is by adding text. Whether it’s a title, subtitle, or any other text that you want to include, Premiere Pro makes it easy to do so.

To get started, you first need to add a video clip that you want to use as your background into your timeline. Once you’ve done that, select the type tool on the side of your timeline. Click anywhere in the video preview and start typing to add your text. Premiere Pro will automatically create a pink clip for your text above your video clip on the timeline.

You can drag the clip center to change where your text shows up in your video. You can also drag the edge of the text clip to adjust its duration. To change your text properties like its font, hover over your text and drag from the beginning or end of your text to select all of it. You can also just click your text with the type tool and use the Control+A keyboard shortcut to select it all. Once it’s selected, go over to effect controls under text.

Here, you can do various things like changing the font and its size. You can use the buttons to turn your text bold or italic. Under appearance, you can change the color of your text by clicking the color box next to fill and selecting your desired color. To give your text a stroke, check the checkbox next to it and change the stroke color if you desire. To increase your stroke width, drag this number to the right. You can also easily give your text a background or a shadow by checking their boxes and adjusting a few settings.

Under transform, you can drag these position values to change where your text is located in the frame. Although, it is recommended to use a selection tool and move it in the frame. One other thing you might want to do under transform is decrease the text opacity to make it more transparent.

And that’s it for this tutorial. By following these simple steps, you will be able to add text to your videos in Premiere Pro with ease.
