How do you "lock" two clips TOGETHER so they animate in sync??

Hi there,

Having a lot of trouble trying to figure out what should be a relatively simple thing.

I have text over video of a car...... as the camera pans right to left (panning along the car).... I want the white text to stay in sync with the moving video, keeping it exactly within the width of the two doors.


Problem is.... if I manually animate the text just by itself.... it'll never look as good/precise as if the two clips were just "linked" as they were moving together.... like how Final Cut Pro can do.


Check out my image, is there a work-around??



Any help here?? Thx!

Thanks Dave,

Got another question, perhaps you can help here, too....


Take this "ideal vehicle" text with the Autotrader logo from my image above.....

So I gotta now make this a movie file, so that I can drop it into After Effects....

But when I exported this little clip, I get a black screen background.


So I need to make this text the equivalent of a .png for Photoshop.... so that the movie is just the text, no background.

Can I do this in Premiere??

I guess the longer way would be to just put all the elements into After Effects and create that quote from scratch again.

But just asking if this is possible...... thank you!

Final Cut Pro has a way to have text track with an object? That's pretty cool. I didn't know that. With Adobe and Avid, I have to use something like Mocha Pro to do the tracking.

To be clear, what you want to do is lock the text to the side of the car so what when it moves, the text moves. Yeah, that's exactly what a TRACKER is for. And the best one I know of is Mocha Pro.

Yeah, in FCP you can pretty much group the clips together with a Shift + click, exactly like you would be able to in Photoshop...

Or really.... everything is the same in Adobe Premiere....

They just need to allow the "Effect Controls" box to open up when you have clicked together more than one clip. That's it.



I've been meaning to learn After Effects, kinda sucks this small little technique can't be done natively. But ah well... maybe I'll look at Mocha Pro.


Thanks for the help, guys!
