Tweak as you like
Everything is adjustable and tweakable. Want the video to be closer to the virtual camera? Adjust the Distance to Image in the Basic 3D effect. Want another color on the background? Throw a Fast Color Corrector onto the nested BG sequence, and drag the color wheel around.
Several formats supported
This template has ready-to-go sequences for several formats already built-in. And if your format is not included, you can build a custom one in a few minutes by making new sequences in your format, and copying and pasting effects.
Included format at launch: 720p50, 1080p25, 1080p30, 1080p50 and 1080p23.976. If you use another format, and you make a new template in that size and frame rate, then please share it so other people can build on your work! Also, if you use the template in your film, a link to the film would be appreciated! just shoot us an e-mail and let us know.
No real time
This is a fairly complex project, and you should not expect this to play back smoothly without rendering unless you have a high-end system. The Compound Blur effect is not hardware accelerated, so you will get a red render bar even if you own an MPE compatible Nvidia graphics card. But you can still scrub and tweak the settings before you render.
Expect more of the same
This Premiere Pro template project is a sample from the book The Cool Stuff in Premiere Pro. The book will teach you how to make this template and lots of other cool and time saving techniques.
