Hi

I downloaded the trial version of Premier Pro CC 2017 and cannot find a way to add 'Titles'.  According to tutorials I've found you 'right-click' the add button in the project panel but there's no 'Title' function.  I also tried the Workspace under Window and under File but 'Titles' is not there.

Any idea what I'm doing wrong? Do I need to install a secondary piece of software for Titles to work?

Any help would be great ... I'm completely new to video editing.

Thanks

Graham

The older Titling tools were sooo much easier to use from an ergonomic standpoint.  Please do not discontinue those and or please still make them available.  This tool is painful to use when you are under a fast deadline.

I've just finished editing 6 dance show DVDs. The legacy title tool is perfect for simple song titles and class names. I can create a title, add transitions and blurs, then duplicate and edit the text for the next act. SIMPLE! I did try the new title tool but gave up, instantly.

If you're coming from expectations of behavior like the Legacy Titler, the EGP is rather opaque.

However, the EGP has capabilities & tools available well past what the Title can do (except for gradients & a couple other things ... which you can do in Ae). It does take a bit of time to get used to working with it, but is well worth the time.

The text ... use the text tool, and type on the program monitor ... for additional layers of text, in the EGP edit panel click the new layer icon, start typing. Use the EGP controls mostly for type/styling things, and pinning and roll/crawl directions.

Use the ECP to animate the layers of text & graphics, save your creations to say the library or your cloud account.

What with old title?

Why Adobe TOTALLY crash old workflow and old projects ???

Why do You always make work harder and You have to keep pushing to do not go back previuos versions of projects ?

Now all old projects are completely useless becuse Adobe cut them out...

No, you can still open the old projects and change something within the previous title tool. The problem just exists if you are creating a new title. So please, calm.

Hey Bernard

If you're sure its a CC2017 issue then I'd strongly suggest you reinstall CC2015.4, just for compatibility with those older projects.

For what its worth though, old (Legacy) Titles are still accessible on my own Windows 10 / CC2017 system... last time I checked I can open and edit old projects with Titles intact. I can work with template (PRTL) files (although to do that I now use the Media Browser panel rather than the Titles > Templates menu). The only thing I can't do is export new template (PRTL) files.

Cheers

Andy

I will record my desktop to show You that new Premiere (my premiere) is NOT compatible with old titles.

It just show empty clips with no edit options.

About the versions

Thank You for your suggsestions but my opinion is that this is NOT fair that just for Adobe whaim I need to do completely madness steps just for opening projects which i made a month or two before.

This should be in Adobe care to continoues compability between the versions.

Now it is madness ... even small update cut You our from any project made in older version. MADness just for hunting $$$$.

The problem is Adobe which give us software which going worse from version to version.

It's a shame that there is no other software on market.

I will give You example.... there is a option in Premiere "Amatour" (i will never use "pro" for this s) which call Apply Defeult transition to all clips on seq... I will be very thankfull If somebody tell me how to remove all transitions from all clips.

I think you are referring to the "Automate to Sequence" feature, right? If so, that has nothing to do with Graphics, so it should be migrated to a separate thread to avoid totally confusing this already hard-to-follow one. Once you start a new thread about that, we have many great users on here who can no doubt give you a reliable answer pretty quickly. If not, post the link to your new thread on here and I will go to it and answer it myself when I can. (hint: there is an option to not apply transitions in the Automate to Transitions dialog)

Also please note that I am a member of the product development team, not an official support representative. The time I spend helping people on here is as a fellow user, on my own time, outside of my regular job duties. So if I am slow or unable to respond to certain issues, that is why. Things like app crashes, very slow renders and poor output quality are not known issues specific to Graphics. The best course in such cases is to contact Adobe Customer Care to help you troubleshoot your hardware/software issues.

Really?

I appreciate you developing new features. I don't appreciate a bunch of googling to re-learn something that wasn't broken. You should have at least left "legacy title" in the add menu.

File/New/Legacy Title ... and you can set a keyboard shortcut to bring it up or create a custom workspace for it ... I did. I do recommend going through the following links, as there's a lot the new EGP does very well, and much of it isn't obvious.

There's a few things we still need the legacy titler for, and a lot of things the EGP is better at. An in-between state it seems.

This "update" and the loss of critical Titler editing functionality has cost me immeasurable time, money, and frustration.  It is now impossible to make minor changes to titles in "old" (1 month) projects.  For us, that means redoing completely, any title that needs changing.  Try that with 500 words of full screen graphics. On 15 pages.  For many projects.  And make them look the same. Without any new mistakes. 

Adobe, this is horrible.  Please bring back at your earliest ability, the essential function of being able to re-edit existing titles.

Adobe, this is horrible.  Please bring back at your earliest ability, the essential function of being able to re-edit existing titles.

That functionality is not gone. Try one or more of these methods:

  1. In PrPro 11.1.n, choose File > New > Legacy Title to create new titles with the old titler.
  2. From within a project which already contains Legacy Titles, find a title in the Project panel or in an open Sequence, then double click on it to open and edit it in the Legacy Titler.
  3. Choose File > Import then Browse to find ".prtl" file(s) you want to work with and Import them into your project and then open them as described above.

If one or all of those methods are not working for you, then there is some other probem which may need to be worked out with Adobe Care people or perhaps with help form fellow users (like me).

Agreed. No Legacy Titles, no business.

Switched to Adobe after that crap Apple pulled on us with FCPX.

Guess it's time to finally time to leave Adobe and switch to Avid.
