    Military style titles in premiere

    Hello everybody,

    could anyone help with the following ?

    How can I make titles, that appear in a movie like
    military style ? That is the letters appear gradually,
    one after the other, if possible green on black screen,
    with appropriete sound effect, which could be seen
    for example in Terminator II and III.

    For example there shows a date "11.12.2006 1426 Florida, day one".
    That time means 14:26.

    Thank you

    You cna use Photo shop, and make each letter a diffrent layer. then bring in one layer at a time. When i get back to FL (away for thanksgiving) I will help you a bit more indepth....Ill show you exactly what i would do.....


    What editing program do you have? If you have Avid, Premire pro, or FCP then there is an easier wat to do it

    I am using Adobe premiere pro 2.0.

    The title is supposed to be in a video, that I make for
    a amateaurs actors, to serve as backround.

    ok then in your video (text) generators, there is a typewriter option. all you have to do is find the font you want. then go in and add the SFX, which you can find on any SXF site or CD Set.

    dude instead of doing all that, just open up windows movie maker, real simple and easy, make credits and choose typewirter as animation, export the video and input it into any application you want, this is what i always do when i want arabic writing, and ive used the typewrite option on one of my movies... the sound effects can be retrieved anywhere like

    www.sounddogs.com
    or anyother sound effects website..

    i think this is what you might want, i took the liberty of actually creating the above title in windows movie maker, check it out, no sound effects, only text...

    Unfortunately Premiere doesn't have this effect - you need to do it in After Effects (it's called write-on animation).

    There are also third-party plugins available for Premiere that can do the typewriter - I don't think they are too expensive.

    If it's a one-off project and the text isn't too long, I'd go for the Photoshop option. You can also import layers as a sequence which helps speed things up a little. A good idea might be to change the default still image duration to about 5 frames before you import the Photoshop file, then add the whole sequence to the timeline.

    I suppose another option would be to create a sequence of titles in premiere which adds a new letter each time.

    Thank you all for the effort. Although the moviemaker thing is not exactly the one I needed, it is very close.
    The sounddogs seems to be a good site.
    Thank you again.

    Special thanks to Dave for offering more options.
    You hit the target.
