    Default how to overlay graphic over video in premiere elements 2????

    Hi guys,
    I wonder if you can help me with an idea.

    I have designed a logo in photoshop, thats mainly just text but in different styles.

    What I would like to do is have the logo over the video like you would with a title.

    The idea is to strink it down so its like a water mark that is always there through out a scene, a little like the sky and cable channels.

    Using Pinnacle 10 in the past I had to save the picture as a TIFF file for it to open up in the titler and the software to just see the graphic with a see through background, is this the same for premier elements 2???

    Also do I have to work on the size first in photoshop, to the size I want it to be in the corner or can I resize it in premiere later?

    I'd be very grateful for any help.

    Thanks

    Adam

    This is oh so easier than you would believe.

    Draw your graphic in Photoshop. make sure it has an alpha channel, i.e. the background is invisible and you see the light grey checkerboard pattern behind it.

    Save it as a PSD.

    Open your Premiere project

    Import yoru video assets and you grphicv, just created.

    Drop video on layer one of your 'sequence'

    Drop your graphic on layer 2

    Select your instance of your graphic on layer 2 and change it;s scale and position in the effect pallette.

    Job done.

    Oh and maybe lower the opacity slightly to get a better effect.

    Hi Alan thanks again for this my friend. Once again you come to the rescue. I will have a go at this tonight, that is alot easier than I thought it would, should of known that really as all adobe products usually recognise each others file types.

    Many thanks indeed for that
