    Default Zooming in on text from a letter...

    Hi,
    I'm making an entertainers video demo for someone and there are newspaper and magazine articles, as well as letters of commendation I'd like to put on the timeline and then have specific sentences "fly" forward to fill up the screen, sort of like the TV show (in the US) Dateline or 20/20 does.
    Does anyone know how to do that?
    I have both Premier Elements 4.0 and Premier Pro 2.0 but can't seem to figure it out.
    Thanks.
    Jerry

    Hi Jerry - Try creating another layer in photoshop using an identical font and size. transform and rezize to fit exactly over the sentence in the page article.
    Save the text background as an alpha channel and import both into premiere.
    V1 article V2 text - alpha key, transform and move the text to suit.
    Hope this helps -

    Thanks. I don't know that program at all.
    When you say Photoshop, do you mean Photoshop Elements or the full blow pro version?
    I have the most recent Photoshop Elements and I think a copy of version 6 or 7 of the pro version.

    Photoshop Elements will work fine and the suggestions you've gotten at the Adobe forum are very good also

    Spotted a clip on Sky last night that may be another option for you.
    A news page where a ripped out section springs out and moves into full screen. Same solution as above, but copy the required rip section.

    Pretty much any image editing app will do this, but IMO Photoshop would be the best bet
