I'm adding in Text Layers into my timeline and need fractions. I went looking for an answer online and learned about the Legacy Title feature, but (as far as I can figure out) that doesn't work on the Text Layer. In other Adobe products the special characters are under Open Type, but I can't find information online about that in PP.
How do we type speical characters into a Text Layer in PP?
In the end, I cut and past the characters I needed from a random webpage into th Text Layer, but I'd like to know the correct way.
As far as I'm aware, Premiere Pro does not support OpenType features. (I'm admittedly no typeface expert, but I know I've tried to look for OTF features before and couldn't find any). Come to think of it, I don't think After Effects supports it either.
I think that you did works fine, and is what I've done too. I think the only other option would be to import them into Photoshop or Illustrator, make the text appear as you want, and import that as a graphic into Premiere.
Maybe we can keep our fingers crossed for OpenType support down the road. Ironically enough, wasn't Adobe part of OpenType's creation? Eh, I digress.
