Please DO NOT retire Legacy Titles

The new essential graphics tool is VASTLY inferior to the old legacy title. This is not just a title creator. Legacy titles can be used for all sorts of simple graphics that can be animated later on during editing. It's almost like having Photoshop / Illustrator built into Premiere. It's amazing. 

 

Here are some of the things legacy titles can do that essential graphics cannot: 

 

1. Create a larger number of shapes and precisely adjust their positon, height, width, opacity, and rotation. 

2. Distort shapes to simulate orientation 

3. Duplicate text/shapes by holding Alt + click and drag (amazingly useful!)

4. Adjust the color of a shape or text in many different ways: solid, gradient, 4 color gradient (very useful!), bevel, eliminate, ghost

5. Create custom curved lines with the pen tool

6. Have text follow a custom path (example: have the bottom side of text follow the edges of a circle) 

7. Insert graphics into the text editor

8. Add shadows, sheen, and texture to shapes and text

 

I have used the Legacy Title editor to easily illustrate furnaces, houses, planes, pipes, gears, and so many other stuff that I could then animate in the timeline. It's one of the most powerful tools in Premiere and you want to take it out 😞 

 

I've attached a few screenshots of the things I was able to do with the Legacy Title.

Might want to check out the beta.

Can do nearly anything on the list except text follow path.

Quick example:

I would not even consider making such graphics with the legacy titler.

Photoshop would be the app to use. You can animate any layer.
