Here are two simple Camera Point-of-View templates. Both of them free! Use the DSLR one (made by me) to simulate the viewfinder of a DSLR camera. Use the other one (generously contributed by Immanuel Heims) to simulate a Video Camera viewfinder.
Audio Editing is what most people struggle a lot with in Premiere Pro, especially if coming from other NLEs like FCP, Vegas or Avid. Premiere Pro CC handles audio in very different ways from all of these. Once you understand the logic behind the audio handling in Premiere, you’ll see that it’s very powerful and deep. You’ll get a full overview of the complete audio chain in Premiere Pro CC!
In this chapter you’ll learn everything about how to decide what channels from a source to import and what channels to put on the timeline. You’ll learn how to make Premiere treat Stereo clips as Dual Mono (like FCP and Avid does), and understand the difference between Mono, Standard, 5.1, Adaptive and Multichannel clips and tracks. You’ll also learn how to make Multichannel timelines where you can route audio tracks to whatever outputs you need – and how to treat a 5.1 mix. Need to export 32 audio channels? You’ll learn how.
This Premiere Pro CC template enables you to quickly put an image and a text onto the board. Provide your own photo – the rest is included. Everything (yes, I mean everything) except the texture and the photo was created from scratch in Premiere. That includes the notepad paper and the push pin, the shadows, the crimps and the image frame. And it’s free!
Finally, the fourth chapter from The Cool Stuff in Premiere Pro is ready for download! Using the techniques explained in this chapter will let you stay within Premiere Pro and still create professional looking motion graphics!
Download the PDF file below and learn everything about Lower Thirds, End Credits, Rolling Titles, Pincture-in-Picture, Animated Travel Routes, Video in a Comic Book, Grungy Image Frames, Photos on boards, Reflections, Text Techniques, Motion Graphics for Non-Standard Screens, Split Screens , and much, much more!
Here’s a useful collection of Premiere Pro Titles. You get three Lower Thirds templates, an End Credit template, a collection of special characters that you can copy/paste into other titles, a Push Pin (!), an empty title with Arial font at 40 px that you can set as your default title and a subtitle template with a clever bounding box.
Everything is free, and can be used on any project – even commercial ones.
The 1.0 version of my presets has been downloaded more than 22.000 times, and is used daily by documentary film editors, wedding video makers, students, and even by big broadcast companies. Now, you can download version 2.0, with even more cool presets.
I’ve added presets for Dynamic Garbage Matte and other compositing tools, some audio enhancement presets and a very cool Bounce In – Fly Out animation preset. There are also 30% PiPs and a nifty Opacity Keyframe Killer, to get rid of the default Opacity keyframes.
This template enables you to quickly make a cover flow sequence in Premiere Pro CC, and easily edit it. It’s as simple as putting your source videos in the source timelines. Then go to the main timeline and play, render or export. Now you can create cool cover flow sequences in a couple of minutes, entirely inside Premiere Pro, using built-in effects only. No third party plugins!
If the Play button doesn’t work, click here to watch the video. A user manual is included in the project file. You can even zoom out from a full screen video to the cover flow, or from a cover flow to a full screen video. You can of course change the background and the “floor”. The timing of each video can also be controlled.
With this free Premiere Pro template project you can use your own video clips and create this animation in seconds. Made entirely inside of Premiere Pro CC using built-in effects only. A users manual is included in the project file.
Free download includes Premiere Pro CC project file and comic book drawing. There are 14 frames in the drawing, so you can tweak the animation and add as many video clips as you want. You can animate the “camera” in any way you like. Poke around in the project to learn how it’s built, and then make your own version. Feel free to post links to your versions below!
This is probably the coolest of all the cool stuff you can do in Premiere! Compositing, Green Screen, Keying, Blending Modes, Track Mattes and other techniques are so much fun to work with. You get 47 pages crammed with tips and techniques for doing high quality compositing inside of Premiere. Everything is done without the help of third-party plug-ins.
Get inspired! Download the PDF file below to learn advanced compositing techniques, including expert keying, skin smoothening, witness protection, custom soft wipes, sky replacement, muzzle fire. You’ll also learn how to use the CC plug-ins from After Effects in Premiere, so you can add effects like Particles, Radial Fast Blur, Snow and Rain. Read more…
This chapter is for all you lazy, smart and busy editors out there! And for the editors who’d like to earn some money on their editing! Due to ever-decreasing budgets, tight deadlines and quick turnaround we need to complete projects faster and speed up our creative timeline with time-saving techniques.
