[Tex/LaTex] Align Text in Footline

beamerheader-footervertical alignment

I am new to LaTeX – Beamer. I am trying to create a template, and am almost done. However, there I am unable to align the text in the footline.

If i play around with the hspace vspace it increases the width of the footline which is something i do not desire. I was wondering if there was a way to vertically align the text in the footline to be in the center of the bar.

\setlength\barwidth{24pt} % width of bars set here
\setbeamertemplate{footline}{%  \begin{beamercolorbox}[sep=2pt,left]{footline}% 
~\hfill \fontsize{12}{14}\selectfont% 
\end{beamercolorbox} }

Putting my comments into an answer (and shamelessly stealing the MWE from @samcarter; thanks for that)


\setlength\barwidth{24pt} % width of bars set here
\setbeamerfont{title in head/foot}{series=\bfseries, size=\fontsize{12}{14}\selectfont}

      \parbox[c]{0pt}{\makebox[0pt][l]{% doesn't use any horizontal space
        \usebeamerfont{title in head/foot}\inserttitle%





\title{This is longer title, which might take up too much space}
