titles in premier are ODD
heres how u do it
create a title, and drag it into a seperate video stream above the video. CLICK and hold shift, then click both the title and the vid track
you have to set a transparency. Click 'clip' from the menu, go to video opions, and select transparency.
select screen, and play with percentages. After you render, your title will appear over the video
note...the title must be ABOVE the video in the timeline. if the video is above the title, the video will overlay OVEr the title and it will looked all fucked up
hope this helps
