Cover Flow Template for Premiere Pro CC
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 embedded video 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.
You should know Premiere Pro CC before you use this template. You need to put source videos in source sequences, and if you want to alter the timing, you need to know nesting. The template comes with a users manual, and you can also watch the 6 minute video tutorial below.
It’s highly recommended that you have a system with GPU acceleration enabled, meaning you should have a Graphics Card (GPU) with 1 GB or more VRAM. Adobe has a long list of “approved” cards here – but any card with 1 GB or more VRAM should be OK. Software Only mode will stress your system, and may cause lagging and even crashing – so make sure you have a system with a decent GPU.
The Template is made in 1080p25 – so it’s Full HD at 25 fps, but that can easily be changed. You’ll need to change it in each nested sequence. It will only take a few minutes – and then you can save it as your own template. (If you’re willing to create 29.97, 50i and 24p versions for me, let me know!)
