About this blog

Reflection template

Once I’ve made this, you shouldn’t have to

This is Jarle Leirpoll’s Premiere Pro blog. The purpose is to spread knowledge about Adobe Premiere Pro, so editors can use it to its full potential. Jarle has written a book on advanced editing techniques in Premiere Pro. And, you guessed it, the title is “The Cool Stuff in Premiere Pro“.

The philosophy behind this blog is that Premiere Pro editors around the world should share their work. If someone has made a 3D reflection effect, then no one should ever need to build that effect from scratch again. Everyone should be able to download a template, insert their own footage, and hit Play!

Need for speed

Creating everything from scratch is time consuming. Sharing and using templates will speed up everyone’s work so we can spend time on the more important editing decisions and be creative. I urge everyone to submit your effects presets and templates so we can all benefit from a pool of useful, fancy, beautiful, time saving or just plain Cool Stuff.

The book “The Cool Stuff in Premiere Pro” has lots of info on using templates and describe time saving workflows and techniques that every Premiere Pro user should know.

Posts will be made at a very irregular schedule, so subscribing via RSS feed might be a good option.

Have fun!

Music and Sound FX can make good images look great, so Lars Nårstad has helped Jarle by creating the audio for some of the templates. Want some awesome music for your next film? Lars is your man!
