Make your life easier with Master Styles in Premiere
Have you done any translation videos for your clients? If you are working with Adobe Premiere Pro and If you have like 100 text layers — you need to change for example the font color for all of them – that’s going to be hard (to change the color to the 100 layers) – UNLESS you have applied a MASTER STYLE to your text layers. You can do as many master styles you want and use different font families, color, size etc. for each style. This “master style” -thing comes very handy when you think you need suddenly to change your video’s 100 text layers font size or anything else. This little tip saves you lot’s of time.
You can see the Master Styles property in Premiere Pro:
- Click your text layer
- Go to Essential Graphics
- Under that tab, you can find the Master Styles property
- From there, you can make a new one and apply it to text layers
I have made another tutorial on how to make subtitles with Aegisub subtitle editor, you can find it here.
A little backround story
For example, I did some time ago a commercial video for a client and they wanted four different language versions for the video. They wanted the subtitles to be burned to the video because they did not want to struggle with separate subtitles files. So, I exported the same video with three (finnish was the fourth one, but obviously I did not need to do that one) different subtitles burned to the video. And the languages were Japanese, Chinese and English. I needed to change (for example) the chinese language font size to be bigger and the font color to be yellow, so this Master style thing became very handy at that point! At in the end, I needed to change the styles little bit for every one of these languages. This master style literally saved me. But, I hope this helps you somehow, I just wanted to talk about this a little bit!
