I have a text layer in After Effects that I'm using as a text template for a Premiere Pro project. Is it possible to make the editable text multi-line, and if so, how would I go about this?

Just to sync our watches: Both point text and paragraph text have the potential to be either single or multiline.

If you create multi-line text using so-called point text like this (ie, single-click of the Text tool, w/ multiple lines created by hitting the return key) ...

enter image description here

..then Premiere will display the multiple lines like this:

On the other hand, if you create multi-line text using so-called paragraph text like this (ie, click-drag a rectanglar area with the Text tool, w/ multiple lines created by hitting return key or word-wrapping) ...

enter image description here

..then Premiere will display editable fields like this:

So basically Premiere will add additional editable text fields whenever it sees linebreak characters in your text, whether it's point text or paragraph text. Hopefully that helps!

  • Perhaps I wasn't clear. After Effects has a setting where the text of text layers can be made editable in Premiere. This only appears to work with point text (I can only edit one line in Premiere). I was wondering if you can add multiple lines. – a-- Nov 7 '16 at 4:48
  • Sorry about that, I didn't even know about that feature, ha. I'm taking a look at it right now. – Bobby Circle Ciraldo Nov 8 '16 at 15:33
  • Ok, I think I've gotten the hang of the "text template" feature now, and have updated my answer. – Bobby Circle Ciraldo Nov 8 '16 at 18:50
