How to Add Intro Titles with Adobe Premiere

YouTube contains many videos about various subjects, but not every video contains a title sequence at the beginning of the video. For example, you may view a highlight video from a sport that does not properly introduce the content. The description on the video's webpage may have some kind of introduction, but I prefer to add simple intros to videos before I upload them to YouTube.

In this tutorial, you will learn how to import a a video into Adobe Premiere, edit the video with titles in the introduction, and how to upload the video to YouTube with proper tagging.

To complete this tutorial, you will need the following:

Import the Video File into Adobe Premiere

Open Adobe Premiere and click New Project.
