INTERFACES The screenshot below shows the default workspace View slide
PROJECT PANEL The project panel is where you store all the elements needed to create your finished video. It can contain individual video clips, audio clips, titles, photos and graphical images. When you import new items they appear automatically in the project panel. The project panel also contains sequences, which include all the data in a particular timeline. When you create a new project, the project panel contains a single sequence called Sequence 01. View slide

MONITOR PANEL The monitor panel is where you view video clips and edited video sequences. The left screen is the source monitor, which allows you to preview clips and make adjustments before adding them to the timeline. The right screen is the program monitor, which shows you the active timeline. Controls under each monitor allow you to scroll through the video and set edit points. In the top right corner of the monitor panel is a fly-out menu containing numerous additional viewing options, including technical monitors.
THE TIMELINE PANEL The timeline panel is where your video takes shape. By dragging items from the project panel or source monitor and placing them in the desired order, you create a sequence of clips and events which play in the timeline from left to right. With items in the timeline, you can: Adjust edit points, making clips shorter or longer, or stretch them over time. Create multiple layers of video, e.g. titles, superimposed images, etc. Create multiple layers of audio, e.g. voiceovers, music, etc. Add transitions, filters, special effects, etc.
You can also create "nested" sequences to help keep the timeline manageable. When you have finished editing the timeline, you can play it back in real time or export it in a variety of formats.
TOOLS PANEL (TOOLBOX) The toolbox contains common tools used for editing clips in the timeline. Click on any of the buttons (or use the keyboard shortcuts) to select each tool. The default tool is the selection tool. When you select a tool the mouse pointer will usually change to a new icon to represent the tool when held over the timeline panel. In some cases you can change the behaviour of a tool by holding down a modifier key such as the Shift key.

TITLES There are two ways to create titles in Adobe Premiere: (1) Premiere's built-in Title Designer. This the simplest method as well as quick and easy to access. The disadvantage is that the title designer is relatively limited — it's fine for most common requirements but in some situations you'll need to use the second option... (2) You can create titles in another program such as Photoshop and import them into Premiere. This allows you to use all the power of your favorite program for creating advanced titles. 09/20/14 13
Using the Premiere Title Designer Premiere's Title Designer is a utility which allows you to create simple text titles for use in Premiere projects. To open the Title Designer, select File > New > Title, or F9 on your keyboard. The title window appears as pictured below. 09/20/14 14
By default, the background of the title composition area shows the current frame in the timeline. The title composition area also shows the safe areas - the television safe area (outer rectangle) and the title safe area (inner rectangle). For best results your title should fit inside the title safe area. 09/20/14 15
To add text, make sure the text tool is selected. Click in the title composition area and enter your text. To alter the font style and other attributes, use the Object Style menu to the right of the window. When you have finished entering the text, you can select the move tool and reposition the title. You can also right-click the text and select Align for more positioning options. you will need to save the file (File > Save). Once the file has been saved it will appear in the project window as a new item. 09/20/14 16
