Creating the Title


This movie is built within a single composition, which you'll create now:

1.

Create a new comp named Master Comp, using the Medium, 320x240 preset, with Frame Rate 30 and Duration 10;00 seconds.

2.

Select the Title-Action Safe button at the bottom of the Comp window.

3.

Click the Horizontal Type tool in the Tools palette, and set the following properties in the Character and Paragraph palettes:

Fill Color: white

Stroke Color: None

Font Family: Myriad

Font style: Roman

Font size: 40 pixels

Tracking: 50

Centered text

Your text will be big enough to be read easily, but these settings leave enough room around the title so that a background and other animated elements can also be viewed.

4.

Press Ctrl+Alt+Shift+T (Windows) or Opt+Command+T (Mac OS) to create a new text layer in the center of the Comp window. Then, type the title LA HI-RISE.

5.

Select the layer in the Timeline, and press the up arrow key several times to nudge the layer upward to make room for a second line of text underneath.

We used all caps so that the tall letters keep the high-rise theme of the title and project.
