We downloaded and imported
the royalty free transitions into
Premiere CC 2014. We then
looked into ways we could
darken the transition to make
the text stand out.
We used Google to research
various darker images that
would help the text stand out
and we found a royalty free
graphic image of dried paint.
Which we downloaded and
imported into Premiere.
We Placed the image over the
transition and using the effects
panel we adjusted the levels to
make the image slightly
We increased the percentage of
the transparent feature ,and
added the text back to the
transition, and it stood out and
it was readable.
This is the final outcome of our
transitioning text which we put
in between clips within our
trailer, which included quotes
that linked to our Narrative .
We repeated this process on
the title credit , and we also
included an actual transition on
the text to draw attention to
the name of our trailer.
To create the ending credit
we used the ending to
Paranormal Activity: Ghost
We used the image directly to
recreate some of the graphic’s
we couldn’t get hold of. From
that using Photoshop we
manipulated the text away
from the background and filled
in the colour using the brush
I repeated the process to any symbols I
included within this ending credit. Using
the original image I lined up the
elements I had created in Photoshop.
I manipulated the text testing outline colours,
also glowing lines, bevel and emboss ,
shadows to enhance the look of the text on
I put a photo filter on the image and
using the controls of the density I was
able to recreate a similar effect like we
did on the transition, to make the text
and symbols readable and stand out.
