How To Create Quick Captions Using Premiere Pro

Are you using Premiere Pro and want a quicker way to create quick, dynamic and eye catching captions? Just follow this simple step by step guide for your next Reel or video.


Before adding captions to your video, it's important to finish adding all of your media and organising it into the sequence of your final video. Because once captions are added, it can be troublesome to reorder, remove or add additional media. Adding captions should be one of the last steps taken when video editing.


When ready to add your captions:


1. Go to Workspaces and select "Captions and Graphics".
