Star Wars Text

Here’s a fun project template that mimics the iconic Star Wars opening titles. Just edit the text, and you’re good to go! The project is made in 1080p50 format, but can easily be changed to whatever you need. As always: The template and the music are free, and you can use them for whatever you want.

The Galactic Center image is not included in the download. Download the full res JPG (6149 x 2902) of Hubble-Spitzer Color Mosaic of the Galactic Center from the Hubble Site before you import this project into your own project.

Proper crediting is expected and increases your karma, but we will probably not bother to sue you if you don’t. “Star Wars Text template from by Jarle Leirpoll. Music by Lars Nårstad“. If you use it, a link to your film on the great interweb would be much appreciated. Don’t forget to also credit NASA and STScI for the image.

Works in Premiere Pro CS5 and newer. The background image is huge, so don’t expect any real-time goodness. If your system is slow, you might want to scale the image down in Photoshop before you import it. Quick user guide included in the project. And there’s a longer version of the music should you need it. Enjoy!

Expect to see lots of cool and time saving techniques in the upcoming book “The Cool Stuff in Premiere Pro“!

    This title effect was not created in Star Wars for the first time.

    I found the same effect in Christian Jacques ‘s movie : “Les disparus de Saint-Agil” dated from 1938 !!!

    The final generic title is as Star Wars title…

    Back to the future !

    Best regards (and thanls a lot !)

    Thanks for the opportunity. I’v been looking for this. Downloaded & unzipped BUT when I tried to open the text got reply from computer that it does not recognise file type suffix & so can’t open. what to do?

    • The suffix is .prproj, and this is a standard Premiere Pro project file. It will open in Premiere Pro CS5.5 and newer. Try launching Premiere Pro first, and then open the project file with File > Open.

    Hello Jarle, I like really much this template, but have a problem. The text that I would like to paste (change) is bigger (longer). And after I paste it, half of it not show. I try it to fix, but can’t… How I can fix it? Thanks in advance!

    how do you take of the directions at the beginning without deleting all the text? also how do I add an image behind? and import this to another premiere pro project?

    • The directions are just a title. Select it and hit the Delete key to remove it. Those directions tell you how to add the image behind, so make sure you read them before deleting them. Alternatively, you can just hit the Eye icon for the track, so it doesn’t show.
      If you want a different image than the one I used, just throw it on Video track 1. Import it to another project using the Media Browser, and only import the sequence – the rest will follow automatically.

    • I’ve kind of stopped making new titles in Premiere after the Live Text Templates from After Effects feature came. So sorry, but I don’t have any more Premiere Pro templates.
