1. Adobe Premiere Pro CC Trailer: Hey, this is a trailer for my course on Adobe Premiere CC essential strategies. My name is Bill and I had been filmmaking for over 30 years and I've taught thousands of students across the world. But this course is so much more than just watching him pressing buttons. This is about giving you the knowledge in a way that you can understand and the tools you need to get you up and running. So you can take that video footage you have on your phone or your laptop and make amazing video stories with it. I want you to be able to create videos that people, when they see them go what, given a walk away with all the knowledge and fundamentals, you need to gather the materials and video, edit and manipulate your videos into amazing video stories. All the real-world techniques that you need to make amazing videos all in one single course. I really am so excited to guide you on this journey. So if you're ready to get inspired, then put down your distractions like social media and YouTube just for a short time. And I promise you take this time for yourself. You will learn the techniques that will make your videos stand out from the crowd. You'll also have the confidence and skills to go from strength to strength as a video editor. So if this sounds appealing to you, and I look forward to seeing you in the first lesson. 2. Getting assets : First of all, let me thank you for choosing this course. I'm sure you're gonna learn a lot and have a lot of fun along the way. In this chapter, we're going to look at getting assets. So what assets? That video clips, pictures and music and sound effects. So you can put over your video or pictures to create a movie. If you don't have any of your own assets, don't worry. We've included sample footage down in the projects area, somewhere in the description of this course. And you can download that and follow along. Also. We can show you sites where you can go get stock footage and pictures and videos so you can download and practice a free. Remember the more that you practice, like anything, the better you'll get. Especially with things like Adobe Premiere. It takes a lot of practice and skill to get familiar with it and get better and better. And the only way to do this is to continue repeating the process. With all this said. Let's get into Premiere now and start this journey together. So if you don't have any Asset, so videos and pictures and things to practice with. We will provide some that you can follow along during the course. However, it's really great, as we said, to be able to go and get more free assets. So a really good website for that is Paxos.com. For a thing to note here. And they have lots of things like videos and pictures and stuff like this. You should read that license. Their licenses is pretty simple. Photos and videos on pixels are free to use. Attribution is not required, but giving credit to the photographer or Peck cells is not necessary but always appreciated. Meaning attribution means if you have a YouTube channel or something. For example, if you see something on a free stock site that you download, clip or music or something. If it's attribution is required, they'll tell you that you have to give credit in a link, in the description or somewhere on your site, back to the person that gave that footage. So you can modify the photos and videos and Paxos be creates banana them as you like. So it's really, really good. What's not allowed? Identifiable people may not appear in bad light or in a way that is offensive. Don't sell unaltered copies of the photo or video. Eeg is a poster print on physical products without modifying it first. And don't simply doesn't imply endorsement on your product by people or brands on the imagery and don't redistribute to other stock footage sites, for example. So, you know, don't take advantage. And you can upload if you're a photographer or something or a videographer, or you can upload your own stuff and get ammonia. So it's very simple to do this. It's great for practice and if we go back to home, we can go look for look for I don't know if he had drone shots and something that I love. So these are you can see these are photographs. If you're looking for something in particular over a city, for example, you can tells you what it is. The set its free tiers. You can look at the information, tells you who the photographer was. It tells you the size, the resolution of the picture, the software he used to Jarrett, and the aspect ratio. So it's free to use and no attribution is required. So this is a license. That means you don't have to even give this guy recommendation if he used his picture. And this is what he's put up here to do. And then just to download, all you have to do is go up to the top. And the free download. This has an Assad downloading on wherever your download area is. On Windows is normally just under downloads. And that's where that is downloaded two. It says here you can say thanks to Thomas. So you can follow him on Instagram. You can donate on PayPal If you want to give them a dollar or something if he were using this for some other projects, have you just practice in? I think it's okay. And then if you need it to give attribution which you don't, but you can copy this link and it will be a link back to here. So this guy will get sort of credit and acknowledgement for upload him his picture. So that if we go back to the home site, we want to look for some videos. For example. You go to videos. And this is still looking for drone shots. Maybe I won something like people into people. And he has video clips. And if you just hover over them, they'll show you a little footage sample of them. And it's the same thing. They have lots and lots of whatever you need for your project. It's actually you can get stuff here that will, will work. So he has one on someone rolling out some dough. You can open it up. You can look at the information on it again. So you can see this is 4K ultra HD 3840 by 2160. That's 3840 pixels this way by 2160. This way tells you what the aspect ratio is. 16 to 09:00 AM. It's 50 frames per second. That's what it was filmed. And so you have this information and then you can play it and you can see if that's what the type of footage you were looking for. And then you just do the same thing. We can then just download, starts to download. And also is a link to click back here to the person that uploaded event. In this case. And that's the way you can explore this and get lots and lots of stuff. There's MAN group is lots and lots of footage and lots and lots of photos that you can pick. The big red, they're great for your projects and great for practicing. Whatever you need to practice along with the course or beyond the course, we just want to get some you don't have any footage of your own. Maybe you're not a videographer or photographer. This is a great site. One of these, a few other sites too like this, just explore, search for them. And it gives you lots of great footage to be able to practice. So here, then if we go down to my dynodes area, wherever it is on your particular computer. You can open up the picture that we just downloaded. We can look at the other one that we downloaded here. And the last one is that video, which I believe is this. And they're on your computer ready to use. So coming up, we need you've downloaded some video footage if whether it's a project files or we've supplied or you're getting some of your own. At this point, it's really important to organize everything. In the beginning, you'll be tempted just to frank footage into a folder, put it on your desktop. And as you get more and more for age and more and more stuff, you have to be organized from the start. This is a really important tip and I would really suggest you follow this along with this. So looking in Premier, I'm going to show you where you can organize some stuff now. So if we go to the computer, there is a folder here that will supply for you cold ZZ temp. We do that just because it's easier to find. And what you're gonna do is right-click on this and say copy, and then control V to make another copy of it because you don't want to spoil the original one. This one here, we're going to rename that, just right-click on it or just click on it slowly. And when I call it my project, for example, whatever, whatever your project is a young working on. Okay. So inside of here then you'll see that it's laid out with folders called Audio, Copy footage, graphics, project files, and renders. So audio is we're gonna put all your sound effects and music and anything like that, like narration or whatever you're doing. And then copy is if you make a script and you follow a script when you're talking to video and a token head thing like this, and you talk into a camera. Yeah, some people use teleprompter as other people use no pans, whatever you wanna do. So whatever way it works for you, that's somewhere you can put the copy. Or even like if you download some music that you purchase, you can put your license and there in such a way that keeps everything organized. The next thing we'll have is all of our footage over video clips are in here. Any graphics pictures, things like that? Project files, any premier files when he met the Premiere project file, this is a great place to keep it. And then the final renders, so you'll find a line put of the video and it keeps it really organized. And as you make more and more projects and videos, this is a great little structure. The keep it under. It isn't my idea actually. It's another guy and you can look him up. Its Geico Daniel Scott. So looking inside of here now under my project you can see that this is where you'll put your stuff down. So in audio, there's some sound clips in here or music. In footage is some videos that were downloaded. And then under graphics you bought some other pictures in here. And then this way a project file would go and your final video, there's nothing in here right now. And also under my copy, I would have a text document or something in there that if I resume my narration, I would keep that in there. Whatever you want to. It's just for documents basically. Alright, and this is a really good idea to keep everything organized as you make your video, moving through the process. 3. Opening premiere : In this section, we're going to open a premium for the first time. What are all the settings mean and how to set up your project. So now that we have some, some assets or videos and pictures put together, Let's open up Adobe Premiere Pro. If this is your first time open in Adobe Premiere, you won't have any recent files than he ever if you've been in here before, are opened up. Another Premiere project. This is where you can click on to actually go and reopen it. So for us, we're gonna click on New Project. You're gonna then put a title name and here, so we're gonna say practice movie, for example. And then he, you're going to select a location where you are going to store your video. You want to choose a joy that has a lot of space. And what we're gonna do is put it in. We have a folder made pixels, which is what we copied out videos into in the previous chapter. So I'm going to select that as my folder. This is where it's going to go. So my location is D pretzels and my case, my project is called practice movie. And as far as the rest of this, you don't really have to change anything. As far as scratch disks go. I always say this is same as project. Just make sure you have enough space on the hard drive that you're going to try not to put it onto a separate USB Drive, try to, try to put it on the fastest route. You have an SSD drive, for example. This is rendering. If you have RAM on your graphics card, you want to select that. You can select playback on software only, and that will just slow things down quite a bit. So if you have a good graphics card, so Adobe Premiere video editing is actually very memory hungry. So what you wanna do if you have a great graphics card, choose that. And then we're gonna say, okay, and that is the beginning of our first new project that we're going to start creating a movie in. 4. Workspaces : In this chapter, we're going to take a look at the workspaces or panels as they're known. When you first open premia, they're pretty intimidating. And you'll click on a button for sure that will move them around. And you try to figure out how to get him back to the way you said, look, don't worry about all this. We're going to take you through each panel, how you can customize it, move them around, and if you make a mistake for him back to where they were. So let's get into this. So welcome to the interface or panels as they call them. And Adobe yours might look a little bit different than this, depending on the version that you have. No problem. They all work the same. You see up here there's a learning tab, assembly, editing. So we don't need this S is learning. We can get some tutorials. You can these little three lines, you can click on them and say close panel. You can see that all these little panels that we'll be using will be working with editing. We can change these panels to our layout however we want them. In editing. If you don't see that you can get a window workspace and then you can just choose editing right here. Now the other thing we can do is if you click in a panel, then you move your cursor over until it turns into this double line. You can drag the panel to whatever size. So if you click on another panel, you can move this up or down. So they can be manipulated around phi2 something by double-clicking. And then this happens. We don't freak out. You can just double click on this again and it will go back to where it was. And you can change these layouts that whatever suits your needs. Now, if you change it, and let's say you did what I just did then if I double-click on deaths, for example, and it does this in the middle of your edits and it's quite scary initially, and you don't know what to do. What you can do is change them right back to default by going to window. Workspaces, reset the saved layout, and then everything will go back to default. One other thing to let you know is that if you click on the top here, you can move the panels around. However, if you want to change these. So now this will be down here. And then you could take this one up here and move it down here. So if you do this by accident, I pretty much work in the default. So I go back to Windows workspaces and reset to saved, and everything goes back to normal. So no need to be too scared, get to panic by it. You can always go back to where you were. So that's enough about panels right now. The next session we're going to start employed in some media into this area here. And this will all make more sense. 5. Importing media : In this section, we're going to import your media. Your video is your pictures you send. And it's really important to organize it inside a premiere. Just like we did outside of Crimea. We just dump a bunch of files and then your project gets bigger and bigger all the time. Well, pretty soon it'll be uncontrollable that we cumbersome and you won't be able to find things. And if you've gotta go back to it later on, then it's really difficult to do that. So it's important that we organize the files within the project manager, just like we did when he was in New File Explorer or your Mac. So that's what we're going to go through now. And trust me, you want to do this if you don't start off in this little mode of learning, when you get bigger and bigger projects and files, it'll get a lot harder. So take good Note that this one, Alright, let's get into it. Alright, so let's get some media into here. So this is the project panel. Best-practice movie is what we made in the very beginning. So now we gotta get some medieval inside here. So there's a bunch of ways to do this for free. Just double-click in here. It will take you to where your media is stored. So again, we have our very own here which you could choose the images individually and pulled them in. Or you can play in folder by doing import folder. So I have some other videos and pictures that I want all in this folder called all here to give us a sample sum I select all. And what you can actually do here is if you just select all of these bitumen shift on a PC, you can just do OK. And it's going to now import them all into here. We're going to look at this a little bit bigger. We can go to assembly and they're all in here, just gives the window. It's the same things which in between the two, which is different view. And then this gives us an idea of what we are looking at. A lot of people will say Now, you can separate the side between your video and your audio, for example. So you can see here this is a tells you everything about this here. So this icon here as it tells you what it is, if you just hover over it. And it's a video clip, it's 23s, 0.976 verses 24 frames per second. And it looks like it is 28 seconds long. This one is video, which is the purple one, and it's got an audio track, this little green track here. If we look down here, this is just an audio track. And it tells me that here you could see where, where, where there's a purple and a green edge car audio and video. I've just got the purple, that's just video only. And if you hover over, it will tell you that as well. So if you want to organize these two, nice actually the Chopra jpegs pictures has a different icon again. If you want to separate these out, and if you have lots of them, you can create a folder also called a pin. So you can click on this and then say, video is one thing. And then what you could do is take all of your video tracks. Just buy. If you're doing them individually here, you can just do control and command and take all of your video, like so. And then just drag him into the video folder and then see that actually this is open. You can just click on this little arrow and it tidies it up here. And then we can make another folder called, for example, sound. And then here you would just drag your sound or music up into that folder or bin as they call them. And your last ones here that we just have a picture one if you want to make another one called patch. Right? That's what a lot of people actually do. They'll just create pins and we'll drag this one up here as well inside of here. So that just sort of separate summary. So if you want to get video, you do this and you can pull them over. If you want to get the sound file only you can do this. You want to get a picture, you can do this here. Just separates it all, makes it neat and tidy. And now we'll go into, just go over to the editing tab again. And you can see it's the same thing here. If I look at the video tab and I click on this, they settle down and arrow, he's all my video clips. And then we can make this a little bit bigger if we want to, like you. We looked at before, like this. And if you also look down here, this is showing you a ListView, but you can look at an icon here as well. Double-click on this, and then you have an icon B over the video. And actually if you just go on these videos, you don't even have to click trained hover over left to right. It'll scrub through your video clips so you can see maybe this section you're looking for. So I personally like to work in the ListView. And neither we made a couple of folders in here or bins. You can see all you've gotta do is click on this up arrow on the folder or pen. And it'll get you back to your different bins that you've made. So the video sound, again, clicking on each one will give you the assets here. Right? So don't forget this guy up here. He will always take you up Identity inside of one of these guys. And you have the change views for whatever reason. It's however you want to work. You can always go back up a level and go back to our ListView. And here. 6. Sequence settings: In this chapter, we're going to talk about a sequence. The sequences are nothing more than timelines. We can place your video clips, pictures, and sang along the timeline to create your finished movie. You'll probably have different clips of different sizes. Maybe 24 frames per second, 60 frames per second, along with different resolutions such as four, K, ten, ADP or AK. So we're going to look at organized all these. So the output of your movie is exactly what you want for the outside world, whether it be Youtube, Facebook, Instagram, or what have you. So let's get into this one. So before we can create a movie, we have to create a timeline sequence. So what's a sequence? So first thing we have to look at is pulling over some of these video files here so that they can create a set of different videos or pictures, music on a ration in this title timeline. And this will create a movie first. And we're going to do though is sorta what type of video we have. So double-click on this practice movie. This opens this screen a lot bigger. And we can see here that these were not all shot on the same camera. There's shop by different people. And basically the camera settings are all different. We have 60 frames per second here, 24 frames, 23.97625. You, the thing that we have over here is a video information. The resolution, we have 3840 by 2160, which is 4K video. Time to seven hundred twenty nine hundred or 1920 by 1080, which is HT. So the first thing we want to try to do is sorted some of this information here. So I don't really care whether media starts. If you click on this and just drag it further down, we can get the way. So I like the frames per second here. I don't care where the media ends shares information we don't need right now. And we saw we have frame rate, we have media duration, demanded time. Let's grab this video info and bring it down here. So now we have these three columns here that make more information for us a lot easier to find. So double-click on this project panel again and it'll go back down here. So now we can see very easily if in our video Ben, we have a bunch of videos. We can see this when it's 4K, This one is h t. And this is how we're going to make a sequence. A sequence is going to be made up of the frame rate and the resolution of what we want for our final movie. So we, For me, I always pack the 4K version. So what we're going to do, we also have another video here, this drone rock 4K is actually higher than this normal 4K forage. So I'm gonna right-click on there and say new sequence from film clip. So here we go. It actually places that video over into here. And this is a preview window in the program window which called. So when we drag this slider across it, the video moves in the project wearing the other program window. So okay, this is what it's going to preview, what the video is as we make this sequence up. And you can see here that it changed from the name of the video that we pulled him was called ten Joan rock four K. This has ten. Rock for k is the sequence now. And it's actually here. So this is the video that we chose. And this is the sequence is little icon here that you see is actually if you highlight over it, it says sequence. Now, the problem is that it's a great resolution. We want 24 frames per second, which is 23.976. I know this is a bit confusing, but just go with it for now. It's 28 seconds long. And this is the video resolution. So I want to change that to match true 4K. So we'll click in this window here, will go to sequence sequence settings. We can see here on the custom, it's 23.976 frames per second, which is what we want. But we don't want the original frame size. So what we can do is type in these new numbers, which is 3840 by 2160 and its ratio of 16. Tonight we're going to say everything else is okay. We're gonna say okay. And it's going to give you some information here. So now sequence setting is what we want it thirty eight, forty two, twenty one, sixty. This is the sequence again here. I want to change the name because it's taken on the name of the video that we pulled in here. And you can see that up here as well. So what you can do is just click on this icon it again slowly. And that's changed that to practice movie or anything you want to click Enter. And then you can see it's changed up here. This is our sequence now, and the sequence is called practice movie. So now we've created a sequence ready for us to start building our video. And the output will be 4K video. 7. Editing : In this section, it's the editing section. It's a reason why you're here, right? So we will manipulate your video, showing you how to use some of the tools to be able to cut, move, move in just the video, moving just the audio, and manipulate the video to start building that timeline for your finished product. So let's get into this. So we're gonna start editing now, you're moving. So the top half of the timeline window is for video. The bottom half is for audio. That's what these a channel, a, a2, a3, V1, V2, V3. So you can just left-click on, uh, on your video and you can move it along the timeline. So video goes above here and audio goes down here. You can use this playhead to scrub through or just use a space bar. And it will scrub through. And you can watch the preview of the video. In the top. Press the spacebar again to stop it. And you can do the same thing up here for the start and stop video head. Well, I'm going to most people will just have you come into the video section, bring in all the video clips and then start doing it. Well, I'm going to show you a way that might make sense to you if you're a beginner. And we'll put these things in step-by-step. So let's just click down here on I can view. Double-click on this folder or bin. And then you have these these thumbnails that you can scrub through. So I will, I'm thinking I want to use this one next. So what you can do is just double-click on this and it opens in the Source panel. Now the Source panel just gives you a bigger area too. Scrub through where you want to stop and start this video clip. If you want to completely there, or you want it just a little bit. So I'm gonna start right at the beginning. And then I'm going to stop it around. Let's say here. And what you can do is this is your mock out point. Now here if you look closely, it says video and audio. You would just grab this and you can pull this down into this area here. You drag this on the video. So we have a video here now. But one thing you'll see, or notice as I scrubbed through this, the picture resolution isn't the same as when it's over here. And you can just click on here and you can scrub through your system here. So what does that mean? It means that this one was a 4K image and that's what we made our sequence with. This guy over here, is a lower resolution. So if we go back over here and we just hit on the ListView, and we will check at this woman walking on the beach here. We can actually, we can just scroll along with this and take a look at our information as well that we had before. So you can see here that Woman walking on beaches 1920 by 1080 versus the drone rock is 4K. That's why they look different. Sheet oxidize walking on the beach. So how did we fix them? So it's quite simple. You will just right-click on this and you set the frame size. And now they both are the same size as 4K. The other thing that's going on with this thing is it says that it has audio and it has video. But I can tell when we scrub through this, press the space bar or what have you. There's no audio because it would be coming up here on this on this bar indicator. He and I can't hear anything. So we're going to get rid of that audio just by you can do this and see on link if it was linked together. In this case it's not. We're just going to highlight the audio pod and click Delete on my keyboard. And that gets rid of this, has no audio in this anyway, even though it had some wacky setting, whoever uploaded that. Ok, So that's at two clips. So how do we move these sands? You can move things together by left clicking down, highlight and everything, and this dragon it together and it will move together. It doesn't matter how many clips you have here. So if we wanna go backwards, there we go and leave a little space here for right now. The other thing you can do here, this little rubber band thing is actually a zoom in and out key. So you can zoom in, for example, and then move this back and forth to scroll along here. But another simpler method is as long as you're in this window here, this, this timeline window, you can use your plus keys on your keyboard and your minus keys to just zoom in and out a lot quicker when this is highlighted. So let's pull it in another clip of something here. Let's take these people on a moped double-click again. So in this case, I want to see where I wanted to start. Maybe I wanted to start here. That's the endpoint and that's also you can do on your keyboard for n. And then you can just drag it along to where you want it to stop. And you can do mock out or out on your keyboard. This guy here, it shows there is no audio, has nothing to drag it. There was you could drag the video by clicking on this icon or the audio only on this icon. So in this case, we're going to drag this, bring it down to the timeline. And we're zoomed out a little bit here, right? So we can just do a rubber bands here to zoom in. And then you can move along here. And now we can see by clicking in here we have these guys. So this ducks all okay. So the next thing we wanna do is show you some of these, these tools here in this two panel. And the tool we're going to use, the selection tool, which is v on your keyboard, and the razor blade, which is a cut tool, which is C on your keyboard. And you can scrub through here just like this. And let's say we want that this dot right here is two ways of doing this. You can click on this and you can just cut that. And then you can use the selection tool and highlight the part that you want to delete and just press Delete on the keyboard. I'm going to do Control Z or Command Z to just show you again. The other way you can do this is if you're on the selection tool, you can see as I come near to that, it turns into this little red arrow. You can just do this and drag it. And it's the same as doing the cut command. Like so. I know you don't really cut the video because if you want to replace it or go back, you can just expand it again. So it keeps it in there. Three Clever. So let's say we want to start it here, for example. So we can do that. And then we want to go around here and just get this guy to stop right there. I could use C on my keyboard, a Brit which brings up the Cut tool, and then do that. And then I can use my rubber band to see where I am. And then I can just use the selection tool and press Delete on the keyboard. And now what I could do is just highlight this next video and drag it over until it snaps into place here. So now we've got these two bits of video. And this one is a bit long. So what I'm gonna do is cut that down. So again, select CMA keyboard, cut that down, and then use via my keyboard to highlight this. Use the Delete key. And inside of here. Now, instead of dragging this like we did, I, you can right-click in here and do ripple, Delete, and it will automatically bring this up here for you. So now if I hit the space bar, we have our open-end beach scene. And then it will go into the next video with a, just a straight cut. So that's enough. Let's say we wanted here. I want to stop that there and just trim it up to there. Now use him my rubber band tool again. I can right-click here. I can drag this again, as long as I'm in the selection tool up here, I can just drag that and move it down to the snaps in place. Or again, I can just right-click and rippled delete. So now we have a three little clip CIA all glued together. So it's Beach, fact. The lady walking on the beach. And the guy he's on the motorbike or the moped. Okay, so now we're using the, the supplied clips or ones of your own. Just make an another project, call it whatever you want to in this particular case is so-called practice movie. I can check what settings. This is where I go into sequence and sequence settings. I can see that the frame is 3840 by 2160. So that is 4K. That can be changed by going up here and custom and then type it in. They wanted it 19201080. You would do that by just changing that here. And again, you know, just something that you can do. Just check that again. But I actually wanted 3840 by 2160, which is 4K. And when I hit Enter, it closed up. But before I hit that, I want to show you that always make sure this is in square pixel. And this area then here says 1920 by 1080. This means this program window here. So just say OK. So we know this is a 4K sequence. Grab some files of your own. And I want to see that. I wanted to try to get like a 1920 clip here. So if I drag this onto the video here, it's going to tell me that this cut doesn't match the settings. So when this pops up, it's talking about the sequence settings. We just set it for 4K. So if you want to keep the 4K settings, it's not going to affect the clip. It's going to say yes, keep the sequence or timeline and 4K, if not, I dragged in a clip which is 1920 by 1080. It's going to change the sequence, not the video clip, to 1920 by 1080. So I'm gonna say keep it. And now you can see that the clip art I dragged in here, it looks like this because it's 1080. And as we remember from our resolution stuff, there's four. There's you can get four of these in 14K clip as far as our resolution. So what do we do again? So right-click and you're gonna go set the frame size. So now it's at the right frame size. This just happens to be a fly through in-between some trees. So just drag that and drag another, another clip on here, whatever you want. People on a moped for example. And that's fine. So now we have these two. I can zoom in a little bit with this guy just by moving this hit my spacebar And then it's the people dragon through. Now, this didn't need change and because the resolution was fine. Okay. I want to get back to like we did before here. So what I want you to do is. Practice cutting this up where you want to add some other movies, anya, and do some cuts. So we're gonna get into transitions and stuff later. So let's say we wanted to just see where this is coming in. And I wanted to start here, for example. Now, remember there's two ways of doing this. You can cut it just by bringing this up, clicking on it, are doing commands, just the C key on your keyboard. Or you can click on this guy and just drag it to where you want this. And then you can move these together by highlight that in both. And during that late you'll notice too and you move this around. I click it off it, just click on one. It will sort of snap to where that is, doesn't go past it unless you force it sort of snaps and you get it near to the area. The reason why it's doing that is because this snap in timelines on this little magnet by click that off, it's white. And I can zoom in here just by doing plus, if I'm in this blue area here, du plus on the keyboard. And then what you'll see with this snap into off, you can move this around, but I can also move it just a little bit by little bit. It doesn't just snap to the end of the previous clip over here. And that's because this is off. This is handy when you're trying to fine tune a clip and butted up against another one, for example. So let's move that all the way back to where it was turned this on. And now when I drag this towards it, it will snap to the edge, just like so. The other thing that you can practice too, while you're in here is remember, now I don't know what this is. It says DJI 0114 and there were in the ListView. But now remember what we can do is we can go into the icon view. We're gonna go on videos, go back to the ICOM view. And now I can see that this is this one. And if I scrub through, I can see what it is. So I want you to do this type of thing and then I want you to double-click on it to bring it up into the source area here. And then playlist. So you can see here that the monkey goes out of frame and then comes back in frame. So there we go. There's there's that I would like it to finish there. So I'm as either do 0-4 out or I can click on mock out. And it highlights that area. I don't want all that background noise, just people talk and so I'm just gonna grab if I grab this and drag it down, it's an a bring both things then the audio underneath and the movie. I just want, so do Control Z to get rid of that or Command Z. I just want, and I'm going to zoom this out a little bit so I can see what I'm doing. I am going to just drag the video portion then. Alright, so now we're on this video clip. There's some things that we can edit while we're in here. So if I press play, I come to here. Now the monkey's going out of frame here. So I can use this step back, frame-by-frame. Just keep clicking on it until it's about here. And then I can use my C, C0 and do cut. And then I can press play again. And I want to pick up where the monkeys backend frame over here. For example, a little bit further right there. So now I can use the SI, you know, the Cut tool, eraser tool again, like in cut this here, that I can use the V key or I can click on the selection tool. Click on that, press Delete, and then right-click and press ripple delete. And now that will look like this where the monkeys coming into frame and we pick up back over there. And instead of having all that stuff on the video, on the original video, where the monkey is out of frame for such a long time. Okay, and we were coming up in the next sections, we're going to talk about putting transitions. And so you can do things like write at that little, that little frame area here, right-click and do apply default transition. And now what we'll do is come in here and sort of fade in, and then the monkey will come out the other side. My computer is just buffering because they have so many things that right now. But just like that makes it smooth and we're gonna get into those transitions coming up. One other little chip here. As you can see that all these clips are in on the same line, v1 and some blue here. So you can drag the little playhead, you want it. But one quick tip is, if you're clicked in this box here, and these are on the same line, you can just use your up arrow key and it'll take you to the cuts. She'd go back very quickly. And same thing with pressing the down key. It'll take you along here. So now what happens later on again, this is all coming up, so don't worry. I know it's a little bit overwhelming, but just for you to practice, you can't mess anything up. The clips on damage your source clips are never damaged. That never change if you cut them or delete them and hear nothing changes to the original clips. These are just when this opens up and looks for those clips and just makes a copy inside of here. It doesn't affect the original ones. So if you have other clips here on another time lines like this, and then you do that same thing where you go back, you'll see that it's sorted and then down again with a down arrow. It skips setup of one. So the reason it does that, if you look over here, is only that V1 video one is on. If you'd like v2, and then do that. It'll then stop even at the B2 video as well as the v1. So it's just a quick way for you to get back to to where you want to be. All right, so enough for editing right now. Just practice a little bit. Bring in some other clips and just practice during cuts and moving. Don't be afraid to move the things around here and mix them in like you want them just by dragging them, et cetera, and like this. And then see, see how your playhead moves and what it's doing. Just get used to that. And we'll get more in the next section. 8. Resizing media : So in this chapter, it's really likely that most of the eclipse you've got, unless you shot them all yourself on the same camera. We've different sizes. Some OB in 4K, somewhere between ten ADP. And their aspect ratios will also be different. What do we mean by that? Well, economical aspect ratio of 16 by nine. Or someone shot something on their phone. For Instagram, for example, you could have 39 by 16. So that means it'll either be horizontal, 16 by nine, or the box will be flipped like vertical phone, Nairobi nine by 16. And a bunch of other things, whether the shoulder and go pros or the type or cameras and phones. So the goal of this chapter is to look at all the different clips. So you God, And we've supplied you with a bunch of different ones here. And we want them to be a certain size and aspect ratio for output our final video. So we're gonna show you how to manipulate all of the videos so that they will all match in your timeline. So that when you put your final video, it's exactly what you want, whether it be ten ADP or 4K, 8K, whatever you need. So let's get into this. So OK, so there's something else going on with this first video here. If we look at this here and we look at the resolution, this is an oddball one, like normally sequences set to 4K, which is 3840 by 2160. But you'll see that this actual resolution, 4096 by 2160. So whoever they they did this with a GoPro or some other Kimball system. Again, because you didn't use the same camera, that these are different settings on different people's cameras and what have you. So we would click on this right-click and say scale to frame size. But what I see now is look at these black bars, come up here and here and here. So what does that mean? How can we fix that? So if we clicked on here, were in the editing panel, we're just gonna go to affects control. And then while we're clicked on here, you can see this scale and position. We can literally just highlight over this and we'll see that little pointer will move the scaling number in an ad. So we can make this smaller or bigger. We can make this up and down. This is how you load effect then is special effects on user with text or video or titles or anything. If you don't remember numbers that were sad, you just click on this to reset the parameter and go back to square one. So to get rid of these black bars here, or we're going to do is zoom in just a little bit. Just like so. And then we're good. And I can click black on here and we're back. So that now matches these other ones that we see on here. So let's take this a little bit further. So for example here, let's say you dragged all of these media in here into your project folder here. So we have drone rock over here. We have a woman walking on the beach and couples swimming, bla bla bla. These are all different resolutions. We have a picture here which is 2832 by 3665. It's not unusual for pictures to be totally large size. Then what we've done here is we have mileage, drag this drone rock over into this and it's created this drone rock sequence here. And this sequence setting then will be 4096 by 2160. Then we have another video clip of, if I double-click on this, this woman walks on the beach, which is 1920 by 1080. And then we have another video clip of people jumping into the water, which is 1280 by 720. Again, totally different people, different cameras, different resolution. So we have some samples in here. So we dragged in us, in our example, we drag this first video here, this speech scene. And it's called ten drone rock for k. And it may, when we drag that onto here and made this sequence setting. So now what we want the output to be 4K. So first things first, we want it to be 4K, which is 3840 by 2160. If we look at our sequence setting by looking here, we can see if we hover over its 4096 by 2160, it's the same resolution as the first video we dragged over. So we want to change that. So I'm gonna go as sequence, sequence settings. And you can see here that it's 23.976 frames per second. A check on the frames per second also of the video clip, which is what we want for cinematic video. It's 24 frames per second. And you don't know me type in 24, you put in 23.976. And then our frame sizes here are actually want to change this from this to normal 4K, which is 3840 by 2160. And then we just say, OK, And this is changes the Preview file format or the frame size required all the previous files to be deleted. Okay. We're gonna say yes. Ok. Now we can see that our drone Brock sequence here is now 3840 by 2160 kids. This is what we want to output. So let me go through each one of these clips. We can see that they're all different sizes. So each one of these video clips. Different. They were filmed differently. This is 1920, the woman walking on the beach and then the people on the water, and then our photograph. So the way that we can to each one of these is this looks fine here. But if we right-click on this free, zoom in a little bit. So make sure in this box here to the plus arrow. And then you can right-click on this and say set the frame size. That will set this to the 4K resolution that we want. Now, like in the previous section, we have these little bands here because of this drains setting that was, this was film then probably it was obviously a drone. So now we're in here and we click on this clip. Let's go up to this source area. And we will do affects controls. And I were on this guy. I just click on this once and these will come up. So I mentioned he used the scale slider just to move this. You can see, just like the other video we were doing, just move that to unpack the size we want. Okay, so now this is our first video. It's now in 4K setting, and we resize that for that. Let's go to the next clip here. The next clip is this lady walk along the beach. Again, right-click, set the frame size and automatically. Now she has set up here. And you can tweak these things up here if you want to be can see it goes up to a 100% because it was 1920 by 1080. The 3840 years is going to increase the zoom or the scale by chu 100%. Okay, that's good. Now we're on this one, is these people jumping into the water. So if we click on couple with this one was in 1280 by 720. So again, right-click, set the frame size. And we had this little pillow box here on the side. You can see the black bar here, but not on this side. Again, click on this. And then we can just drag these guys wherever we want this. So we're going to do this if we can't get rid of them like here, we're just gonna do a little bit of a zoom just to get rid of that. And then they're gone. And then our last one over here frees him over is our picture. And the picture, again, you're going to, you're going to click on this and there. Set the frame size. The set the frame size if you like this, look, you know, because it's a photograph. It's up to you, but we will zoom this around, rescale it. Now pictures are always much bigger and you're not going to be able to get this job at the whole picture in. You're going to have to just have it like this with these big black vertical bars here. And this isn't a fact that some people do for photographs. But we're going to zoom in as much as we can here to fill the screen. And then we're going to go up and then maybe to get this guy looking over the city just like that. So now we have all of our video all in 4K resolution. And when we explored this out, they're all going to be in the right frame size. And that's it for this one. 9. Color correction & Grading: In this chapter, we're going to talk about color correction and color grading. So what's the difference? Well, color correction is changed in things like your exposures too high or too low, or your column balances off. And color grading is where you can change the contrast of the look of the video. You can take different lots literature lookup tables, for example, and overlay them onto your video so that it will give you certain looks more like that orange untill look that they use a lot on YouTube over the past couple of years and things like this. So we're gonna get into all these little things now. We're gonna take a little look at Scopes. Color grading, and color correction is a vast subject on its own. Somewhere you just going to touch the base x and this course. Alright, so let's get into the next thing we can look at that I do is I build it all night, do the color correction as I go. Well, people will have you click on this and make a, an adjustment layer here. Say OK. And then this says adjustment layer over here. And they'll put that on the next video slider in one above it. If they've got more video in this area and you can drag this alone. And then what they'll do is able to make the color correction into on this adjustment layer. So this is imagine like a film over the top of all of these clips and the adjustment colors will then be applied to all of them without doing individual ones. So we're not gonna do that right now if I just press Delete on that and I'm gonna get rid of it, edit my bin as well. Because each one of these bits of film were filled with different cameras, with different light settings, different apertures. And we want to tweak them a little bit individually. So we're going to do is color grade, and color correct these individually. So how do we do that? So the first thing to do is go to the top. If you don't have color at the top, you've got a window workspaces and choose color. And I choose the color panel here. Now, be careful when you choose this. Make sure you can see this defaults to the blue around this one or this one. So I mean, I'm adjusting their color based on this guy. So click on the one that your video clip in the program panel and you clicked on it down here. And now what we can do is we can, you can see there's an auto button. This is where over here we're in a luminary color, rim, basic correction. If it comes up with anything else like creative or curves or whatever, come back to basic. And then what you can do, first of all, is you can just try, make sure you've clicked on this one, say auto. And it will try to order correct to what it thinks exposure should be contrast. Highlights and blacks from whites. If you don't like that, you can just click on Reset and it resets. So also if you do auto and then you click on this little checkbox, Show tricks on, on unhealthy effects. You can see the difference. So we do reset on that. The other thing is you have a white balance corrector here. So you can click on something that's white in the picture. And then what you can do is you can, again, make sure you're in the right area. We can make this cooler. For example, Walmart. They can go crazy, right? You can make your break green are wary. The idea here is to make it natural. So basically if you mess up in here, just double-click and they go back to 0, ok, and you can also reset this. So again, make sure you're always in this panel. One thing you can do, it's a bit advanced here, but we can do window and we can check on geometry scopes. And these scopes. Then look at the color signatures. And now there's a whole science behind this and people just make their living doing color correction. However, one thing you can do, which this helps with is you're looking at this. You can use the exposure appear to go 255 appears pure white and zeros pure black. So this is looking at all the, the signature information in this video clip over here. So click on this again and what we're gonna do is move that up with a suit with the exposure because this is really white here. And then the next thing you can do is move the blacks up and down as well. So what you can do is try to bring them down towards 0, but don't make them pass 0. So we're just trying to make it look roughly there. Then when you're done with that, you can forget about that panel right there. Now to close this panel, Daniel C, it's opened up here. We can just click on these three lines and say close panel, and that goes away. And you're affects panels back or your source panel where we were right here. Okay. Now we what you can do then, you can play around with again, making sure you're on the right, right video clip on the right panel it's looking at you can play with saturation to make it really die. This is all down to your personal taste or black and white. So again, double-click and makes it a 100%. The idea is to make it natural without going crazy and you can play around with contrast that a little bit. And then the highlights so you can see what the highlights two. So if I do that, you can see the, the waves of washed-out. So if I move that back down, you can see you start see in more detail in the waves itself and maybe bring the contrast Dan a little bit. Again, it's all personal taste and same with shadows. So if I do this, all the shadow is really light. If I bring him back down a little bit to go really dark so I can double-click them making back in the center. And then the whites are blown out, oversee their faded here. So again, you're just trying to play with this so it looks natural to you. And then we can just play this again to see what that looks like. Ok, so if you're happy with that, what we're gonna do is move on to the next one. So for this one, same thing makes sure you clicked on that, on that video source. And during that window, try auto, you can see it just went a little bit brighter. I might want to bring that down a little bit. You don't always have to use a scope, so I just showed you that. And it's just what it looks like to you if you wanted a bit warmer here, because it's a sunset, you can actually make it a bit warmer by dragging this guy. This is like opposites of each other. This is warmer, this goes Kula. So whatever you feel like to me, it looks like a sunset, so just some a drag dot like that. And on the last one, this talks a little bit washed out. And in the beginning part of the video here, again, you know, this guy has a white shirt on. Maybe you can click on that. That gives you what it thinks is a white balance. You can click on auto. You can see it went a little bit, a little bit brighter with colors compared to what it is on and off. Very subtle. And again, you can play around with it. A little bit of saturation may be. And you can just see what you think like the exposure. Touch on that a little bit of contrast. And again, click this button on and off here just to see the difference. So again, don't go crazy. That's what you wanna do, but you want to do this for each clip. You just sort of color correcting. All right, so that's it for color correct data is a lot more. 10. Using B roll & transitions: So in this chapter we're going to talk about payroll and transitions. So first of all, what is be wrong? So B-roll is nothing more than imagine me. This is what's known as a talking head video. So it's like an interview, you're talking to the camera. But if it's just someone like this going on and on, it becomes monotonous. So to fill in the gaps and make it more interesting, you'll put in other parts of videos. They'll fade in. These videos at fade in and out also have transitions on them. And that transition is nothing more than maybe you've failed between one clip to another, where you'll have a straight cut between two clips. And you can give a lot more stuff with fancy zooms and spin effects and all these things that you can buy news. My advice would be in the beginning. Get used to the basics. Learn to use them because they're the most professional looking. And then a lot of people will buy these packages where there's 200 video transitions with spins and bounces. And then it just becomes crazy. It sort of doesn't look professional and people go overboard with it. So a little bit goes a long way. So in this chapter we're going to learn about putting some B-roll over a role. So ava would be the main video like this when MY token on it. And it'll fade in two other video known as b wrongs. Alright, so let's get into, okay, so we've got our three clips in, and then we want to look at what they call B-roll. So B-roll basically is if you have lights, they call it a talking head video. It's stuff that gets faded shoe. So you have someone talking on camera and they fade into what jump to some other clip. So just to show that a fact, because we're only using one, we're still using just video one channel. We can use 23 and more. So we can, what we can do here is look at something here with if we're looking at this guy drone on the rock, I go, well look at this guy. So what we can do is drag this guy over here and have it may be there, for example. So if we go here now, this is actually a picture of an hour late or forest or something like that. So we can do this. Let's see what that would look curd. So maybe here we would cut into their syllabi. So right now we need to do a few things are there, so let's use our keyboard or rubber bands to just go on in and zoom in a little bit. And again, several loco we got here. So this will be this and not for much longer. Don't you have very long here. Again, we can do c and cut that one right there then do v to get rid of that, to lead. Okay, so now if we play this back here, first things first, that is just too small, so we're gonna click on that. Again. We have that same issue. You could use this here. And we go to the editing panel, which is easier for us to work in. And what we'll do here is we can click on this video. We could go to effects control and we could manually move this up, whatever wherever we wanted. But say we wanted to put that as a video and move it somewhere up in the corner. I don't know, it's there we go. You can even use the tool here, double-click on it and they move it where you want to. Sort of easier. So that would be a way where you could have a video and video, for example. Or let's say we want to, we want to go into that video here. Again, what we could do is click right click on this and do scaled a frame size. So now, because we move this by the way, just now, what we gotta do is go back over here and then make sure we're clicked on that and this to reset, reset. So now wouldn't be the same size. So now for that little bit of video was just fade into this other thing here. And then what we can do is if you right-click for transitions are coming into, we're gonna right-click on this and say apply default transition. And then this is going to show it to you in a cross dissolve as they call it. It's going to fade into this and then it's going to harshly jump back out. So we need this to be a little bit longer. Maybe. We just drag that and the cross dissolve here. You can actually see, you can actually go to the end and drag it down. So it's a little bit faster. And let's see what that looks like. So now you fade into that. And then again, you can crossfade back by, come to the end. Right click, apply default transition. Highlight over it, just make it a bit less of a transition time. Just gonna fade in for this B-roll as they call it. And then back. And again, he would colorize this the same way we just did in the previous chapter. So that's what it would look like. And then maybe for whatever reason, whatever clip you want to put in there. Okay, so let's use our keyboard by the minus button, and let's go back out to here. So now we're looking at some sort of transitions right now. This is called a cut transition, should go straight to the other one. But maybe you wanted to do like this is a crossfade in my cross fade out and then a cut again down here. So let's say you want to change some of these things. So what we can do in here is we, so we're going to click on this and go to the facts. And here are a lot of effects. So you can see there's lots of things you can do and this is a totally different area, but we can go to video transitions. And then you can see what you could do here with immersive video or dissolve. So what you can do is drag one of these onto, let's say we're gonna do like dip to black, will pick that one in a second. But let's zoom in here a little bit. So we'll do plus and our keyboard. And then what we'll do is just move this around so you go back to where we want to be. There. We go right about here. Okay? So right about here. And we're going to then just drag this video transmission dip to black. Right on to this thing right here. They can see it actually landed on this part of the video. So if we click on this one, we can actually see this is how you can control the effects. And I can just drag this up here to its half over the end of this other clip right here. Before it goes on to the second types of we take a look at that now. It looks like this. So it's sort of a classic one right there, but there's a lot more that you can do. If you don't like that one. You can just click on it, press delete, and then we can do film dissolve for example. Maybe go. Same thing. You can click on this one and then you can move this up here. Let's see what this one looks like. So you can get, you get the idea. So you can have your, your transitions between Eclipse. And there's a lot more of this other stuff up here, this 3D motion, iris and page P, L and wipes and zooms. So zoom if we do that one, if you delete this, click on zoom, make into crosses zoom. Let's see. Oh yeah, handed on there. Click on that one. And he can. But trying to go as bringing this guy back where we want it to be. Let's click on this one and then just do across a zoom. So let's have a look what that one looks like. And this, uh, do a little zoom in to the next one. So there's a lot built into premia. You could do a lot with it. So I'm going to stick to the crosscut. Nice and simple are actually what we can do. Let's make it a little bit better than that. Let's go to video transitions and then do the one we had earlier, which was tip to black. There we go. And I'll put that on there. And I can click on that. Move this a little bit over two both. And we have our debt to Black video that goes into the next one and then goes through the trees, dissolve zygote. And then we have a cut to the last one. So that is how we would use some transitions, a lot more to it, but I want to go crazy with transitions. You can go, you can have so many transitions and affects that it just gets, it loses the story of the video. Keep it simple. Use a couple of basic ones. It's much better. So, alright, so now we've added some transitions. We've added a B-roll piece of video and we'd use the Select tool and the Cut tool to have videos. It'll sequence coming together that he, as we go through it all. And we've done some color correction. The next thing we're gonna do in the next section is added some titles. 11. Creating Titles: In this section we're gonna talk about entitles. Why do add them? How to create them? Now to manipulate them, we're going to show you how to add a motion graphic template known as how to install them and utilize them. We're also going to give you some practical examples in the next couple of sections coming up where you can make some cinematic titles and some animated titles that will enhance your video to another level. Alright, so let's get into this one. Okay, so the next thing we're gonna do is add some titles here, at least at the beginning. I'm going to show you in a fact that is sort of a tidal effect as well. If you are on your timeline here and you want to go back to like the first frame. So you can just keep doing this until it goes black. And then you click on this 12 steps forward. One frame I want to capture that frame is the Z opening of video. And I'm going to use this guy here says Export, Export frame. If you don't see this here, you can click on this plus button and then you can go get it and add it to your, to your layout here. The other thing I want to do is close this up in the effects tab that we're in. So click on these to Chevron, so arrows and just go back to Project, practice movie, and then we're back to where we were. We were. So I'm on this this area here. I now want to take a picture of it. It's going to ask me if it wants to keep a copy of this, where it should store it as a jpeg. And it's an ally was to give it a name. So I'm recall it from picture. Anything that makes sense to you. And it's going to import it into the project. And then it's going to put it in a path here as well. So to say, OK, an ad that picture, if I double-click on it, is right here. So I'm going to drag that into keep everything tied here, drag it into my pictures bin. And then I'm going to drag this onto my video timeline right here. And this is a picture. And it's the very first clip of this. And you can see it's about three or four seconds long here. So as I move this timeline, you see this guy Kang thing. And another way you can do things here as you can right-click on this and say speed and duration. And you can actually change this duration or speed of a, of a, of a video or what have you. So if you click on this, you can just change this to, let's say five seconds. And if you want that to be exactly five seconds, you make 0. Say okay. And then now I'm, what I'm gonna do here is just right-click on there, do ripple, delete. And now this guy isn't to start off with a still picture and then start out video at that same frame. Okay, now let's make this a little bit more fancier. Skip this sort of a blue background with the title of the top of it. So what we're gonna do here is look for effects were on this guy here. We're gonna go over here to effects. And then I don't know where the bluer effect is NEA. So I can, I think it's called corrosion blur. Sociologists are typing it, it finds anything with that name. So I can just drag this on top of here. And if you say nothing really changes the UNO. So let's close this up here. The facts, we're going to click on this two arrows. Come back to the practice movie. And just like the tidy up as I go along, this is the source picture. So if we click on this guy now over here, for this guy, we're going to click on effects. We have this audio clip mixer open. I don't want that with a hose up panel. This is what I'm looking for. This is the effect so that we, the Gaussian blur and I can see it's actually down here at the bottom. Wherever you add it, it's always at the bottom. You can see blurriness is here. And you can just start making this blurrier like this. So it's a slight blur as such there. So we can make it 0%, we can make it sort of a go, a 100% or so, right? So that's the way that works. So we have sort of a blurry background. So if we look at that, when that runs into here, it's an undo this, okay? The next thing we want to do is I'm going to go to the very front because I want it to start open with the do apply default transition. So when it starts off, it's black and then it fades into the blurriness. And then we can even make another transition here just by doing a play default transition and then drag the timeline back. Let's see what that looks like. So fades into like a blurred version of that and then starts to move. So not too bad. This is all whatever you want. Maybe this doesn't have to be as blurry. We can make it. But clicked the wrong one. So I checked opacity there without looking. So again, if you mess up, you just do reset parameter goes back. I'm looking at this one goes from blur. And I'll make it not quite as blurry, maybe 70% or something, just to see what that looks any better. And then we will to that and it'll fade into the existing one. Okay. Okay, so we're happy with that. And then I wanted to just sort of zoom in a little bit just to get where we are. Now want to put a text effect on here was some text. So you click on this toolbar, then he and just click on the Type tool and just click in here once and sat tight type insert saying my new video. Okay. Now what you wanna do is we want to change this, make it bigger or what have you. The best thing to do is. Click on the selection tool. Don't click on the S because it affects like circular rotation or something. You can just highlight this here and make it bigger. You can just grab it and move it around the screen wherever you want. Like so you can see the timeline then deviate is here. So we're going to just drag that back a little bit because this can go into the other video. So if we just look at that right now, that's a sort of pop on the screen. Okay? On the other thing you could do is when you click on this here, you'll notice that if you're in the effects panel, you see this is my new video and the effects panel, if you were in something else, for example, or editing, again, normally, just while you're on this, click on effects. And then you can see what we have up here is the text. My new video. Click on this down arrow here. And then you can pick the font that you pad if you want it to be bolder or something, or any other type of thing, you can make it really big. And then you can move it around. And what have you. You can make it in the center. You can just like you're using different editors or you can just click on it, it as long as you're in this selection tool, click on that, just drag it to where you want it. So maybe like here. And there's other effects to ten years removed down here. You can see a give it a background box I think. And what have you. So to that and then stroke. And the fill. So fell means fill up the tax itself. I think the stroke would look at that. Let's do a different color for the stroke. Actually, I wanted just double-click on that. Say it's a stroke is black and it makes like a background on the back of it, like a highlighter, you know, make it stand out or whatever. And they go, there's lots of things you can do. There's lots of other effects. You can give it again, but just keep it sort of simple. There we go. It's just a simple one. And what we can do now is, you know, it'd be nice if that was sort of fade in and out as well as just sort of fade him with it or something. So you can do the same thing, apply default transition, make it much smaller. And let's see what that looks like noun. So if we do that or you can make that actually longer. That was a little bit to Crick. And then you would do that. It comes in and then goes back out. That's saying that's the best, you know, text to use. Or like you said, if you don't like it, you can come back. It's totally up to you what you use. And I can come down here to take distro cough. So it doesn't have that. And you can change the. The font again, maybe not extra bold, just something simple like this. And then again, you're in that mode. You can move it around and you can change the colors of it and what have you is have you just double click on that? It can be yellow or whatever color you want. Here. Say okay, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan there. So you can just do a Control Z and no go back or Command Z if you're on a Mac, okay. And you had to put a text in and give it an effect like a fade in and fade out or something to fade in by default again. And then we can take another look at that. Say, my new video fades back out and then you video starts. So before we go, I just wanted to give you guys a tip on when I used to watch all these YouTubers and these big guys, you know, with all these fantastic tidal affects and intro isn't all this other stuff. And I was like these guys must be geniuses at making all this stuff. And then you have figured out later on they're using this stuff is a website called embargo elements. And Video Hive is a lot of them. And basically you can actually see these packages that'll give you like 70 lower thirds maps and subscribe things and design packages and what have you and you can actually go in and buy these things for Premiere Pro. So like neon light titles and what have you. So this is a way they have packages for things like this. You know, I mean, so if we look at this one for example, this is one where if you play that little video, it shows you what this package will do for you. And then all these things that we see popping up on the screen, for example, you're not making these by scratch, you're actually just download and embeddedness. It'll plug-in that allows you to do all these little. In this case is it'll titles like this on the backend. So if you're doing it for YouTube or Instagram or what have you, this saves you. Davidson's available is of time. So as a template you, you can download and put into, look for. It's for premia for example. And then like here's another one for lower thirds. For, for Adobe Premiere, be careful because a lot of them are for After Effects. But did they go, it's like making titles like we were just doing that symbol one. All these are built in. So it's a lot easier. You just can edit them. However, be careful though, because some of them are actually, it's a great website, were not affiliated, NOT being sponsored by these people. But all. Sometimes you download these, these, these little packages and it's like, man, that makes no sense whatsoever to try to get it going. So just look at the reviews and play random as you get more experience, this will definitely help you out. So what does it look like in real life? If we wanted to put a title over this, for example, we gotta graphics and your download circle Margaret files and there's a video that had to install. These is pretty simple. And then you'll have them in your local folder. So you can select all, for example, and he has all the different ones that you can just drag and drop them onto the, onto the timeline and they go home. It's as simple as just drag that in. And let's, let's make that more in here on this other video, which is easy to see. There you go. It's just like this. So the way you do that then it's once you're on here, you would just go to add it. And then you can just actually changed the name of my video, for example, is the one video tax file. Look at that on here. I want to maybe change this so we can see it better. They go. So my video is the piece down here right now. And again, if we click on this guy, you can change stuff in here. So say it's a my video is whatever. During Great. Whatever you guys want to say in here doesn't make any sense to me right now, but basically you can change it in here, look as well. So these are all the effects and changes that you can do. So again, all of this stuff here has, like, for example, it says doing grade up here and then you can actually change the scale of it. You see if you go too much, it can cut off each one of them is different. And then my video down here, we can make that a little bit bigger. You can change the tax and what have you. And you can work your way down. You can change the colors and the size and what have you. So with the different lines and what have you here. So we can do position and scale. You can move it around wherever you want it to be and you can scale it up and down. So again, then if we preview that, for example, you can see that it basically does this for you. Now, if you owe video gets choppy Like This was just showing it's because you're trying to run it at full speed. You need a really powerful computer for premia. So what you can do to help that is go down to like a quarter or an eighth. So we've got a quarter. You'll see that this gets blurry. But it should help you just to preview the thing. Yeah, I mean, but when he bet on there when you really exported out, it's gonna look crisp. So that's just to show you that that's how these guys do that stuff. Just some extra information for you. 12. Title practice 1 cinematic: Okay, so we're going to make a cinematic title is your first effort here on a black background. So if you're in a brand new project, we want to make a sequence. So we can go down to New Item create sequence. And we're just going to go up to settings custom 3840 by 2160 is for 4K. It's a ratio of 16 to nine of you were doing ten ABP 1920 by 1080. Like so. And that will give you also 16 to nine. So I'm gonna go to 4K, which is 3840 by 2160. Okay? Make sure this is set to square pixel. And you're in 24 frames per second, 30 frames per second, whichever you want. 24 frames per second is a cinematic look for your video. So I'm going to say o k, you can give it a names. I'm going to put mine cinematic title. For example. Say okay, so now what we've got is we made this sequence here. This will give us his Blackberry we want to create. And we have a sequence in our project folder here. All I'm gonna do now is go down to here and select the Type tool. Click once, click it once in here. I'm going to make cap locks on. And I'm an approach. I can't spell makerspace. One thing to note here is that if you're still in the text tool and you click anywhere on the see this red area now comes up, that's another text tool. So to controls the for that, you wanna change over once you type your text in to this selection tool so that you can click on this. Now there's a few ways to manipulate this. You can go to the effects panel and this will give you some larger highlight that's zoom into this by taking the rubber band all the way down. And this defaults to about 4.5 seconds, which is fine. I click on here. We can do affects controls. And then you can see as the cinematic title. And I ask them some ways to manipulate this right here. However, you get used to use in the window. Essential graphics, essential graphics area is actually what's used a lot and has more control. It's very similar to this and you can use either one. But a lot of the effectual do later on you will use the essential graphics. So again, we see the same thing. Go to edit. In here. We can use these but with this selected here, with the selection tool, like we said, this one, you can use these boxes to center the text in the area here. I want to change the font to, you can scroll down, but I know there's a thing called plateau, which is quite cinematic. And I'm going to do not so bold. Actually, I don't like the Bold, so I'm gonna change that to light. And I'm also gonna spread this out a little bit here by doing this VA. And I'm changed at the 300. And it sort of spreads out the distance between the, the letters also centered up, back up again. And you can also use this here just to make this bigger like so. I can use the selection tool to do the same thing. Again, alike to center things up as I'm going. So that looks a little bit better for a nice, clean look in cinematic look. Okay, so we have a title. I'm going to make this lengthier by clicking on this insane speed and duration. And I'm gonna set this for six seconds. Six seconds make i 0. And so now we have the CIA. The next thing we have to do now is with this selected, I'm gonna go up to facts control. And we want to animate this a little bit over this duration as this moves in and out, we want it to fade in and out. So what we're gonna do is use some keyframes. So I can just go up to him and infects controls. I can click on this arrow to clean it up here. And I'm looking for opacity. Okay? So right when the playhead is right at the beginning, like here, we're going to click on the opacity stopwatch. That creates a keyframe here. I'm going to set the opacity to 0. That means it won't, you won't be able to see it. And then I'm going to move the play head. So this is up. At two seconds. And now I'm gonna move the play head thirds at two seconds from here. I'm going to click on this. It will add a keyframe. So it makes us keyframe. And I may change your possibly up to 100. I'm gonna move along again to four seconds. And just add a keyframe here. So it's going to be 0, one hundred, one hundred. And then when I get to the end of this, I can drag it. And, or you can also use the down arrow and it'll take you to the end. And then we're going to hit another key frame like that, and we're going to make it 0. So if we go all the way back and see what that does, so fades in and fades, I'm OK. So one thing you can do is highlight all of the key frames. And then just do. These. Actually do is I was actually there we go. That what that's gonna do is as it goes into each one, if we do this, we can see it can be highway ramps between different key frames. So it should make it smoother. Just like that. Don't worry about it too much. What they're actually doing is this is later on, it's a little bit more advanced stuff. Okay, so now what we can do is just make this a little bit more fancier. Causal effects control. Then here. And they project powder or facts that start happening garage, garage Ambler, drop down to the type itself and you'll notice that this popped up here and the effects control. And it's actually right here. So what we're gonna do now is make sure we're at the beginning of the sequence and we're going to do blurriness. Click on stopwatch when a type in 15, 50%. And then we're gonna move on to the Go down here we did opacity. It'll just go to the next section which is two seconds. And then I'm going to make this 0 shuttle make another keyframe and they match up with this, go to the next one, and leave that at 0. Again. Hit that, which will make another keyframe in line with this one. And if we go to the last one, it will be again at 50%. So these keyframes all match up. So now what we've created is it'll be blurry in the begin end. As it fades in. It's clean. It's clean and blood gets fades out and gets blurry again, such as schedule another dimension to it. Let's do one more thing. So if we just use the up buffer collectiveness parks, Dionaea, a sequence title box and just go up arrow and go right back to the beginning. And then basically we're going to now click on the scale. So right here, you know, being a 100%. And if we come back down to here, click on the down arrow, where at the very end, go back to click on the title again. We're signed scale and maybe do a 110. So it's an upgrade, a keyframe where we'll start off with a 100% and slowly zoom in just a little bit. So if we go all the way back now and take a look at that. So it's just zooming in by 10% and fades out again. So another thing we can do is add another subline to their CIA. So instead of doing all that work again, we click on our title, hold the Alt key down, drag it up, and then let go of your Mirsky. You'll have the same thing on the upper layer. Go to your window, make sure essential graphics is turned on over here. And then we're collect on the top one. So we want to change what this says. So I'm gonna say coming soon, for example. And then I can manipulate this down position to wherever I wanted. Let's go below here. And I'm going to actually change this because it's all caps locks. So I'm gonna take that off and say coming soon. Become my wherever you want to Began may get centered. Drag it down. So to make sure you're in the selection tool here. And then you can just drag this a little bit, make it a little bit smaller. So and I'm joined the center it and keep it in that wrong button, but that's fine. We can move this down to wherever we wanted here. So now if we go here, Let's see what we've got. We have them both coming in together and doing the same thing. So we have all those effects that we did initially, but we don't have to remake them. So the other thing we can do is if we just take this upper one which says coming soon, we can drag it over a little bit. So now it will be, it'll come in at different timings are free. Play that back. This one we'll fade in, fade out. And actually I'll move that a little bit more. Just so it looks like this. Then you get the idea here. So finally, just to top it all off, we go back. I have some friends, some sound that will add onto the top of it. So I'll just drag some sound effects that are found on the internet here or on YouTube. You can get them in multiple places as search around for Warsh sends and see what that looks like. So one last thing. So one last thing is you don't have to have it on a black background. This is a nice opening effect for sedimenting opening to a video. Where you can do, you can also just highlight both, drag them up, and then drag in a video clip that you might have. For example, if this was your video clip here. And then that would do the same thing over a video clip. But again, having that dramatic by background to make it just makes it more dynamic, in my opinion. They go, that's example, one. Simple but effective way to use titles. 13. Title practice 2 Mask effect: Okay, for this first effect, we're going to use a mask to create a text animation. So the first thing to do is to why you're in graphics. You can select the text button, click once and type the text. And from here, if you change the the selection tool, you can just make this the size you want. If you use the alignment tools over here, you can center it in the frame and also change the color I'm on. Leave my white and then select your font by here. I'm going to leave it as railway light. We can then go up to the pen tool here, if you hold down on the little arrow, must like the Rectangle tool and just draw a line underneath here. You can then use the horizontal button here to align it to exactly where he wanted. And this moves at the center. We're going to move it just a little bit down below the text. And I selected a red line. So if we just click on that again, you can see that you can change the color here to whatever you want. If you want it to be yellow or what have you, it will be whatever you want. Now you can see that it made the shape called shape or tomb. We're going to just click on this slowly and change this to line so we know what it is when we go over to the effects controls. Okay, and I've gone over to the effects control. You can see there's a shape called Line that we labeled over a year. Now we're gonna go over here and it comes down to this rectangle tool. And you can see it makes a mask sooner. We're just going to reshape this so it fills a line area that we want. Just like that to make it a bit more square if you want. Really doesn't matter. Now drag your timeline to where you want the light to appear in the animation. So about right here. And then just click the stopwatch umax path right here is sets the keyframe right here. And then what we're gonna do then is go back to our using the up arrow, the beginning of the clip. Now to see the mask again, click on the mask right here. And then over here you can simply drag this over here so it won't be sane. And you can see up here it made another keyframe. So if we just press the play button now, you'll see that the line will be revealed from left to right. So next we're going to animate this. Welcome to my stuff to come out of the line. So go here and collapse the shape line. You just give yourself more information and go to the text. Welcome to my stuff. Click on this little arrow. And then if we have the same sort of information. We're going to select the rectangle again here. And this time we're going to select the masker again. But this time we want the bottom here to be in the middle of this yellow line. So if you just double-click on this panel, it'll bring it up here. And then what we're gonna do here is just when I'd be in the middle of that yellow line. Like so. Just intersecting it. Yes. So you need more accuracy. You can zoom in, for example, to get it even better here. So that's to that. And that looks pretty good. And then just double-click on this again to bring it back down to where you were going to fit. The other thing you wanna do is for the mask feather. Here we just wanted to type in 0. So the next thing we wanna do is see where we want this text to be revealed from. So if we just click on this text here, you'll get rid of the mask itself or CNN. You click on this again to bring it up. So I'll just click on this. We're going to come down to the, to the line here to the playhead and see when the yellow line gets revealed. So when it gets revealed, i'm gonna hold it right band. That's when the tech should be real. Next thing we wanna do is scroll down and click on the position stopwatch here. So this is the point where it's fully revealed. If we move the play head here, the line will stop. And if you look up here, we're not quite at that point. And we made a point here. A couple of I press Second further for the line to be its final position. And we're going to come back a little bit to where line just finishes. And that's where the tech should start coming out. So this point, this is where we want the text not to be here. So we're gonna go to the position and just move this below the line. And you won't see it right there. And you can see it makes another keyframe. So if we just use the up arrow to go to the beginning of the animation press Play line is revealed and then Welcome to my stuff pops up. You can then if you wanna go down to where your two timeframes are on position. You can make this a little bit smoother by just highlighting over both of them, right-clicking and saying temporal interpolation. You can do is in this shouldn't make it a little bit smoother between the movements. Okay, for the outro, we're just gonna go in the opposite direction, so we're still in the position. We can move the play head for however long we want that text to stay on the screen. Let's say here, we're going to then hit another key frame here. So that's where it's going to reveal itself. If so, if we go back using this little toggle previous keyframe, It's gone. It will appear that it stays on the screen to this point. And then move the play head than that point to when you want the text to disappear. And then we're just going to move this again to make it disappear. From this point. Go up and minimize the area here. For the walk into my stuff. Click on the Shape Line, and then you're going to hit the mass path again. In the starting position. You wanted this data, which will be this position when the, when the text is gone. I'm here to keyframe here. And then you can hit the mask itself, move a little bit further forward, and then just use this guy to move the text out the way. And now if we play that back, let's see what that looks like. You have a nice little graphic animation that brings on your tax, makes it a little bit more interesting. Using a mask. 14. Title practice 3 MOGRTS: Alright, so we're looking at a MOG herbs which motion graphic templates they're actually titles and animations that get animated. People make them in After Effects and they look like this. Now, you can download them from YouTube or somewhere. Or you can purchase them from other places like Video Hive or elements for example. And then you'll see here then Kemeny, a zip file. And in this particular case is a help file and shows you how to use them. And then also some fonts that have certain fonts that were years in making them. And this particular case it's neon social media. So there's one, some Facebook. And you can see they all have a mogul extension. So what I've done is I've taken the ones for you to Fannie, I've copied them and I put them on through a separate drive. So I have them on here. This is the three that we're going to install. I have to change the name of this just because it's something that I need to to find easier. So I don't know I could, let's call it my stuff just for this particular example. And if I get any other mode shirts that I want, I can actually just load them in here and add them to this folder. And we're a member in Crimea. And right away you are, if you're an editing or graphics. If the essential graphics don't come up on the right-hand side here I've got a window, essential graphics. And then this will load here now. And a lot of tutorials you'll find that if you want to load a single maneuvered file, it asks you to click on this. Go to wherever this is and you can choose one mode at a time. I particularly don't like this at all. Because if you have some of these boulders might have 15 things in them. So I'm not going to load one at a time. And also for whatever reason I don't get along with that. So I like to use folders. So the simplest way to do this is to click on inessential graphics has these three lines. The Manoj manage additional folders and then just to add. And then go down to your folder. All my stuff, say select folder, say OK. And now. If we sad looking for our folders, we click on local. And we have the folder right here called my stuff. Click on that. And there's your three mobile phones. And it's as simple as that. When you search in, you can see if you went the local folder. These are all the different local folders supply and click on just the folder Kolmogorov. These are all these type of Margaret's or templates. If I click on this, click on my stuff again, these ones will be removed from there. If I select all and I have everything. In my particular case, I have a lot. So if I just double click on my essential graphics, you can see here that I have a lot of overt false, but you can, I purchased over the way and some are free from YouTube, I guess side nine. To get out of this, just double-click on this again and it will minimize this guy right here. So again, if we're trying to find the ones we've just loaded, I want to go into my stuff and just utilizes here. As I said, if he sets a new tube, for example, some people have given away 20 animation titles, free text mode births and things like this. And there'll be a link somewhere where they can download some free ones. I've got free and purchased ones. So by the way, this for PC users is the path that you will find all your MO vert folders and the different logins that are loaded n three. And I'll put this up on the screen for you for Mac and PC. So how do we use these? So I'm back in editing. I've made a sequence, and I am going to go to a graphic. We have, there we go. We can look down here and see my stuff. I can simply drag one of these onto the timeline. I will say keep exist in settings. I made this for k. These are not. So it will keep the setting for the sequence. It takes a second to load it. Now in our case two. And it tells us that this uses fonts that are not currently available. And you can get them from Adobe. And say, I'm resolvable. So it will be, use a default font, which I don't really care about. And I move this over here. I'm going to zoom in a little bit here. Now if I play this, if I go back to editing, that's easier to see. I'm going to the works praises reset to save land. And then press play. We see that this is your logo and some animation. Sam, Follow me and looks like it's for you to in this case. Ok. So one thing I can do here is to set the frame size that'll make it bigger. I'll set it to the 4K signs. So if you want that to come up on the screen, whether it's over a video or what have you. It doesn't matter when you're on here. We go back to graphics. And now you can see with this selected when the essential graphics, you can see the text up here. How are you added? This says, says follow me. So we'll say your name. You can change the text or whatever you want. And it gives you the font, the size. You can make it bigger or smaller. And then your YouTube channel name, say you type in here. Whatever it is, you know, just put it in nothing for now, but some way that would be. So YouTube channel name. And again, you can have some control over this here. Exactly like that. And we can move things up and down. And again, the global scale, if you want to make that so big in the picture, we wanna make it 50% of that. And then you can move this guy, enact. And why, for example, you can see at some point it might disappear. All right, so let's say that's here. Let's go back to edit ten, for example now. And then this is what it will look like on the screen, whether it's over a black screen or over someone talk and whatever heavier. And again, it looks a bit blurry there because my resolution has set the quarter or the fall. Let's see. We can run this Avalon within is running. And again, when you render it out, it'll be crystal clear. So that is how we would use a motor. And each one of them is slightly different. Began you gotta graphics. Make sure the essential graphics as I can. So when you're on it, there's all sorts of things here. You can change. The line color. Could be, I don't know, whatever color you want, the yellow. So now you can see it's a yellow color. So there's lots of options to change stuff. The text colors, the icon color, what have you, right? So that's how we use a motor. Again. Just search YouTube was somewhere, get some free ones, go to Video Hive or invite o elements and purchase some. Just search the Internet. And play around with them and then install it. So that saves you having to do all that work to animate something. So if we look over here and we go back to browse, and I have a lot of different ones and all sorts of ones here that you can use. And there's lots of like lower thirds or simple one thing. For example, like this. Try this one then. Again. Here we go. I'm going to actually set this to frame size and see what we have to add it. I gotta just cuz it's easier to see for me. And that's a nice title intro and moves in and out again. And again. If you click on it, called a graphic and an essential graphics, this has a lot more things to edit. So master properties. We go here, click on this and it gives you like scale Text1. So it says here topography templates. And you could put two, for example. And then how you can change the type of font. And then text position. Wherever it's had a big a playwright I'm really saying is. And then you've got text tail, which is unique design this guy here, for example. And now we take a look at that. And now we'll read this comes on the screen. So, you know, saves a lot of work, gives you a nice fancy graphical titles coming in. All right, so one last thing here is, let's say you want to clean up this thing. He got a graphics. If you don't see graphics, you can always go to Window and then go to the graphics window and the workspaces graphics, for example, see here, well in review is essential graphics. Again, you want to clean this all up. You can click on the three lines, go to Manage additional folders. And my stuff that you really don't want that ego just trying to clean it up. You can just remove it like that and say, okay, they might have to reset Adobe Premiere just to refresh it all. But we'll see if you go back to here now. And it's already gone. So my my stuff is been removed. Okay. I hope you enjoyed it and play around with it. There's lots, as you can see, yo can build up a whole library of this stuff. So enjoy. 15. Music and sound design : In this chapter, we're going to talk about art and music and sound effects or send design. Audio is 50% of the viewing pleasure. You can get away with. Pull video. If it goes in and out of focus a little bit, it's a little bit fuzzy. Or low loss. So it's half of the viewing pleasure. So make sure you do your best to get as good as audio as you can. So the other thing I will enhance your video is sound design. Not just having someone talking or some music over the background. But what about ocean sounds? If you're looking at the ocean or birds, if you're in a jungle or a forest or park, wind, while he's, it'll sound effects make and build a story for you finished video. So let's take a look at all this and let's get into it. So just to give you an example, here is a little movie that I've made up. There is no music in this at all. It's just using free stock footage, video and some sound effects. So take a look and see what can be done. So. So in this next section we're gonna talk about SIMD design and music. We're in the Graphics tab, we wanna go over to editing again. So we need to get some music and some other effects here. So I am going to go to my sand panel over here. And I'm just going to click on this one as his moped and birds because I already have this ocean of Fact one here. I'm going to drop it into my sound effects folder or bin. So now we have three. We have some background music, some birds and trees and a moped sand. So in our example, I'm going to look around here for where I thought the birds in the trees will work. I believe it's in sort of this jungle area here, which isn't very long, but then we have this mopeds. And so right here I'm just going to drag this bird's music sand. And I'm gonna put it on this A1 line. And this is our audio. Now you can make this look bigger or smaller just by clicking, but hovering over the line here and this clicking on it and drag down. And then were able to raise the volume up and down of your audio just by clicking on this line and going up or dam. So we got some bird noises here. And then I'm just going to put them in this little section around here, just subtly. So let's just click on that and delete that for now. So I just wanna get a little bit of that. So I can double-click on this, which we have up here. And I can just play where I want this in and a point that I could just see by this sort of wave form. This is roughly where the senza. So if we go here, you can see this sign over here. So for me I'm going to try to capture between here. So click on this endpoint. And then I have here captured the a point. Then just click on the sound icon here and drag it down to where I want to rent here. This is from before. We'll just get rid of that. So if we play that over and it plays into the moped signed as well. So okay, so let's go and then put on our moped sound. I also want that moped science here too. So my closes up little bit for now. And then I'm going to drag this moped sound over here on line a2 now. And just two. Then it's just background sounds or sound effects. So now we're going to have we can have the birds actually be a little bit. Even while she's on the beach, maybe they go, we can just do that and drag it out more. And then we'll have this mopeds same when the moped pot is coming up. So if we go here and then that's all we have for there. So we can zoom in a little bit and take your razor blade and just cut that off. Pick your selection tool, cut that away. Ok. So now these are pretty abrupt. I want them to be a lot quieter. So what did we do here? Again, it's moved to where we want to work. Now. We can fade this n Actually really quickly here. And fade this in here. I'm afraid this out just by right-click and do apply default. And you'll see here that it creates a fade even though it's on audio. So if we listen to that, and we're actually, and I don't want to listen right now. I can hear both things, so I don't want to hear this, I just want to heat this fade on this, the birds. So if you go to m over here and click on that, that will meet this sound, but play this one. Okay? And I'm gonna get rid of that because I don't like it are doing CLIA because there's nothing really here but the sign of it. So I'm going to drag that back in a little bit. Less of small bird sounds over here. And let's hear that. Okay, and that's cool. She got your bird sound. And then now we want to just get rid of that moped saying a little bit more because it's just ramping up. If we change over and listen to that versus this one. So the bird sounds and listen to the moped sounds. Decided go and write started from the beginning. Let's listen to that. Now. The other way of doing that to another way of fade and stuff in and out. If we just go over here, click on this guy. I'm going to expand it then so I can see it a lot better. And I'm going to, well, I'm one here. I'm going to go to effects. Over here. I'm clicking on this audio. Here is a decibel level. So as I click inside of here, now again, like I said, you can actually dropped this sound of the moped just by dragging this little slider up and down with the a minus. So we listen to that. It goes a lot quieter. Another way, if you want things to fade in and out by using a key frame, for example, this is another subject altogether, but what we can do is see when you rip up inside the effects, whenever you have these, it'll stop watches on that means the effects can be on. It makes a keyframe. You just sort of made it here. Wherever I clicked on that. So I can drag this along this timeline. Do another keyframe, you just click on this little button here. Again, that will say constant from this keyframe to this keyframe. Then when I get to the end, I wanted to sort of control what it does. I can click another one and you see a made another point here. So what do you gotta do is click on that point and then drag it them. So now this will play, play, play and fade out. So we can do like this. Every golfer makes sense for more time. So again, this is a way you can use some keyframes. There can be quite complicated, but just showing you that you can affect not just video but audio as well with, with even same the facts and what have you. So what we've done currently right now is we have just put some bird songs over the beach time and then a little bit over the moped when a couple on the moped. Got it muted. So let's take that back. It's quite loud. I can tell already before we even put the music on the background. You can drop that down a little, but he's just want, I don't want that sound effects to be overpowering. You want them to be in the background. So that's the first place we are. The next thing we gotta do then is we've got to put the background sound and I guess I'm ambient ocean sounds, which will cover the entire section that we're building here. Okay, so first things first. Let's close up these or just drag him up a little bit so there's smaller in size. So we can see the other channel down here. By the way, these little bands down here allow you to move up and down within the video audience sections. This is for the video section. This is for audio. So the next thing we're gonna do now is we're going to drag this ambient ocean effect and drop it onto a timeline here. So now if we just use our keys on the keyboard for zooming out, we can just drag this guy right to the beginning. And then if we listen to that and we can zoom in just to touch. All right, if we go right to the beginning, we'll have some ocean ambient sounds. Now the ocean sound obviously is very loud right now. So again, you can come down to the bottom here and drag it down. And then you could just drag this down here. Let's see what that sounds like compared to the, the, the birds and the moped. And that's the Sun too bad at all. Another way of doing this, by the way, you can right-click on this and say audio gain. And you can actually adjust the gain by whatever you want. For example, five decibels. And then you'll see that the whole thing peaks up and makes it louder. So if we played it MAO. So again, just to control Z, to drop it back down where it was. And the simplest way is that drag this line up or damn, it. It's normally halfway on a stereo clip. So we'll leave it where it was using axe cut tool. Right now. We can just cut it off, use our selection tool. Click on this guy, press delete. Now when you're ready to export your media, just make sure that this little timeline bar here is not overhear somewhere. It's at the end of your clips right here. Okay, and we'll talk about that in the next section. So everything looks good. We got some titles. We have some ambient background music was sound. And then we have some other sound effects as well. We have some birds, smoke had signs when you can put whatever you want them. To just build up these sound effects. It just makes it more interesting. It's layers and layers of different sound. So where do you get your sound? So I'm actually, there's all sorts of paid subscriptions and also free. You can search the Internet. But for one thing, if you actually have a YouTube channel and you go to your, your create section here, then here is the audio library. And you can see here by using this ODE library, you agree with YouTube. These are actually free to use for your YouTube videos. And you can pick a genre by clicking on things like the sort of mood. Then it will become play an endeavor. And then you can actually download it like this. You can, you know, all sorts of things. So you can do that. Or you can go to a place like epidemic sand. It cite I can't remember how much a month, like $10.15 dollars. But you have all sorts of sound the facts and other stuff and we're not sponsored by them or anything again. And there's another one called list. Again, a paid subscription. And then you can download sound effects. So think of all sorts of music for your videos. So there's lots of ways to go. So make sure you're not using any copyrighted music and stuff like that. Unless you've paid for it. Again, if you are looking for free video, make sure it's copyright free or royalty-free. Make sure you read licenses and always stay legal. So OK, so that's enough for a sand design right now. And the next thing we're going to be doing is exploiting your video. 16. Exporting your movie: So Hazara went that point now where if energy EDU video, he made all your adjustments and transitions and affects its timeline to explore those video. She whatever platform you want, whether that be huge issue, just for yourself, Facebook, Instagram, what have you? So next section, we're going to take you through the export settings to get a movie out so that you can put it on whatever platform you want. So let's finish up this video. Okay, so now we're ready to movies all made. Now we're ready to export it and build it. So a couple of things here. We see a little panel here is not all the way along to the end is drag it over to the end. And again to the end where your video stops. Bring your cursor all the way over to the frontier. And do I on your keyboard for in, you see the soul point becomes visible. Go to the end. You want it to stop, and it will snap to the end of the video and select o when you keyboard. And then that's the area that it's going to export. And then I always save, it'll auto save anyway, you might see this coming up on the videos and then they fall. Export Media. And now we have some things to set up here. You just need to change the name and location wherever you want. Your I uploaded video, GIGO, choose your location where you want to save this. The next thing we have here, you always want H.264. There's a bunch of other settings here, but H.264 is actually may not have heard this splits an MP4 video, which is a standard, and that's what you want to do. We can see here are output's going to be 3840 by 2160 at 24 frames per second. And that's what we want. It you can do export the video and the audio. You can also use this slider down here if you wanted to just export part of the video, for example. But we actually want to export all of it. So we are making sure that it's, it's dragged here all the way to the end. So in our case, 25.02 seconds, then you have some dropped ends here, which you can choose many preset formats. So if you're not exporting to YouTube or online somewhere, I recommend that you use these ones and say high-quality settings depending on what your frame rate and resolution was. I was was for case a, we would use this one, for example. Briefly the ten ADP or 720 or four AT what have you. And you can see there's a lot of preset ones for Facebook and what have you. If you are going online, I recommend that you use the YouTube ones down at the bottom. So we can see there is he a YouTube or Vimeo onesies? One's work fine too. So we would choose YouTube for kale to HD because that's what we set. And then it sets all the things for you. It's quite easy. One thing I would check on is used maximum render tab here, and then you just press Export. And your final video is made. With that, that's about done. I hope you've enjoyed this course, this crossroads for beginners. And even if you have been doing some, some video in video editing or you've been self-taught on YouTube or what have you. Hopefully you've learned something as well. Because we can all learn from each other. So enjoy it, play around. And I can't wait to hear about your video creations. 17. Extra Tips & Tricks: Hi everyone. Today we're gonna talk about high resolutions video and images and posted them to Instagram. Today, k, even though really expensive, is not normally four moved to the average customer, but it is available. But 4K and 5K and are widely available and can be used and also to devices from your monitors and TVs, smartphones. This high-quality resolution looks great. And all these devices, even though they compressed onlines by sources such as Vimeo and YouTube. However, Instagram, which is a huge platform, it's not going to handling these high resolution bit rate footage. Maybe you tried to put your video to Instagram, just defined it doesn't look like good compared to the original. That's because Instagram, we uses high compression algorithms. Instagram was never meant to handle such high resolution and bit rate video. Adobe Premiere, for example, doesn't even have a preset for Instagram like it does for YouTube and Vimeo. So today I'll show you how to serve your sequence settings and how to export your video to get the best video on Instagram. So let's jump in the Premier and start editing the video. So you can upload in 16 to nine aspect ratio, which is like cinematic. However, it's not good because Instagram is vertically oriented and prefers that. So holding your phone straight out versus horizontal. Another way to do it is a one-to-one ratio. So you get a little bit more real estate on there. It's a square, and that is what is known as the resolution for that is 1080 by 1080. And this is what it looks like. Another way that we can do this is the four, the five aspect ratio gives you a bit more real estate and it's 1080 by 1350. To get a little bit more room on there for your video. Last one is nine by 16. That's 1080 by 1920. So Instagram Stories which erupted 60 seconds. You can see here it's full screen. And also the new one, which is Instagram's version of tech Talk, is Instagram reels which you can shoot video for 15 seconds. Okay, so now that you've picked one of the three options, let's jump into premia and set it all up. So what we're gonna do is I have Adobe Premiere open. I've put in some 4K forage and here is, this is 3840 by 2165 as a size goes. So this is four k footage and an aspect ratio of 16 to nine. So now we want to create a sequence. So I'm going to choose the square when first, I'm going to click on this stand here and do sequence. This is an a pop-up here. What we're gonna do next is, doesn't matter what it pops up with at the moment this go to settings, go to Custom. Up here on the editing mode. My video is 23.976, so that's why I wanted this as well. And for square resolution, for Instagram, we want 1080 by 1080. So I'm gonna just choose 1080 by 1080 or so. And then you're going to see that this changes to a one-by-one ratio. We're in square fields. This is important here, and That's what we wanna do here. Make sure that we have the same thing, 1080 by 1080. And then say, okay, and this is r squared box that comes up here. So all I'm going to do now is drag this over on my timeline. It's just a video clip. This is an a pop-up saying that you want to keep existing settings. Okay, this is talking about the setting of the sequence, not the video clip them just drag in here. So now that we have this up, it is 4K forage and at 16 by nine ratio, we want to click on this ones, go to effects controls. And then we'll have to scale it up and down. You can see right here, it's normally looking like this. Okay, and then what I'm gonna do is just zoom up. And then you can move this left to right or whatever the focuses of your particular video clip. So minds it and be sort of right in the center here. And if we take a look at that and we'll play this, it's just a drone footage somewhere in Miami. And that's my one-by-one ratio, 1080 by 1080. So let's say that's good. That's what I wanna do. Iv colored you video, everything that he wanted to do with it. We're going to look at exploiting it now. So we're gonna go to File. And then when they go to Export Media, once Export Media comes out, we're going to do match source because we want to keep it by the 1080 by January. We can change the name of this. And we're going to just call it Sequence two from you, wherever you want to put it. And then what we're gonna do is obtaining and this is where you can do your options. There are a lot of people will tell you that what they do is they make the bit rate as high as they can, like this highly carrying 4K. And then when it goes to Instagram and sometimes in a compressed compress it a lot. So my take on that is I'm going to try to get it as near as I can do what? Instagram once. And then it's not going to go into compress it a lot more because you have more control over it when it's in Crimea. Then when you uploaded to Instagram and you don't know what their algorithm is doing? Well, I was going to compress it. So my feeling is on that, that was just my opinion that I tried to get the best results by compressing it in my premium first. And then Instagram doesn't have to do a lot of work. So to do that, just click on here. We didn't match much stores where we can change some of the things in here. So we might saw sitting here. And then we're going to come down. And some things you can do is this one you can do render maximum depth, depth, but death. And then hardware encoding. I always do because I used my GPS. And then when we come down here, the other thing that you can change these two things, Variable Bit Rate, you want to try to do for cheap pass. It just means that it's going to go through that footage twice and tried to adjust and get better quality. So as the easiest way to understand it, as far as ese islets naturally will put these danger eight and keep the maximum bit rate also at eight. And then that hopefully will be compressed enough so I can look at the quality before we upload it once again. So that's what I do, like buffer this method, you might even have to go lower. So you're going to test it out here. So the other thing you're gonna do is use maximum render quality. Then just say export. Then it exploited I. And then what I do then is if I drag in my footage over here, this is, for example, my original data under forage. This was the original video that I'm poor and I'm looking for like the water, this rippling effect here just to see how the original one looks. And then what I'm gonna do then is go in my renders folder and we just loaded this one sequence of two. This is an eight megabytes per second in the square format themselves looking to see what the code looks like before we uploaded to Instagram. And I did a couple of other ones too, with some testing, I went back in, change the settings for a six megabytes per second. So eight or six, sometimes you get better image quality or video quality if you use a lower bit rate for whatever reason, depends on the footage that you're using. And that's it. That would be how you would do the one-by-one quality to upload to Instagram. Now there's lots of ways that you can upload from your premiered, see a phone to get it onto Instagram. You can even do it on your computer. If you are running from a Mac to an iPhone, you can use air drop. If you are running from a PC to an iPhone, you can use iCloud to get it onto your phone. If you are running from PC to Samsung or Android, you can use Dropbox or Google Drive, whatever method you want. You can just Google Hangouts or transfer video from your, from your computer to your iPhone or your Android and lots of tutorials out there. So that's the first one. So the next one we're gonna do is the four by five aspect ratio. So I'm gonna work on the same thing. Well, I'm gonna do is go back up to my sequence settings, and I'm going to change my 45 sequence settings. So four to five means it's still 1080 along the width, but the vertical is 1350. So I'm going to be 1350. Here. It tells me that it's going to change the file formats. That's a nap. And right now you can see that this changed here. So now we got that four to five aspect ratio. It's a little bit taller than square one. Again, you click on the clip and then you will change your zoom settings if you want to. Zoom in again to use the full area, like so. And then again you can, this gives you more real estate. Same thing. If you just do Control M or command them. This will put up your export settings. And again, Match Source, run through, select the same things except for this one is set for whatever reason you're chewing, suffering coating Am I do hardware encoding? So what we have here is an example where I said You systems hardware does not support hardware accelerated for the current settings. Okay. So at default into software settings for me. All right, so now what I'm gonna do right now is either mad, I'm gonna come down to my bit rates aside, the RB2 pass eight Nate, my maximum render is already sad. And it rename this to sequence O2 and the scroll one. And when you export, once again, this is really only like eight seconds or something just for this tutorial. And you can just play around, just play around with what you wanna do. And this is already done. So now if I go to my settings here again, and the rendering, this is the one that's in the four by five aspect ratio. I can open that up and then play through here. Again, just looking at how it looks on my computer and see how it looks, if as anything different, that little thing that you're seeing in here is actually on the original image. So if I go back to forage, This is how I got downloaded. I would play around with this realistically. And you can do warped stabilizer on it on Premier to sort of stop that generating a little bit. It's a drunk setting that when a film this, we can smooth that out. Again is however much you want to put into it. So our last setting is actually for Instagram Stories and reals. Reals is Instagrams version of tick tock. And it's up to 15 seconds, I think right now. And Stories is up to a minute. So what that rate ratio is, is like you have a camera or your phone. It's a normal mirrorless camera. Dlsr 16 by nine is. The horizontal, it's OK in this way. So imagine if you take your phone and you do it horizontal, that's a 16 by nine ratio. Instagram is vertically orientated. So basically they were going to flip this up so that if you took the foam and the flipped it vertically, that's now nine by 16, so it's taller versus the wet. So that sequence for that is I'm going to go back up to sequence, sequence settings. And then we'll go into again, leave this by 1080, by 1929 hours, I'm saying for this one. And you'll see that this guy, if I go here one more time, it's shut it down. It's in a benign way, 16, which is what Instagram Stories and wheels need. And we're gonna say, well chain. And now you can see that it's much taller. Again, you have to play a little bit round with your with your zoom from the original footage. So I wanted to be like this. And now its full screen. It'll look full screen on your, on your Instagram when you play it on your phone or your tablet or whatever. So this gives you the full real estate. Again, same thing now, if we actually go ahead and do control m or command them on a Mac, we're going to say much so a settings you can see it's nice and vertical here it's nine by 16. And then we'll go into R1 gaming. Bring down again. You can see in my case, my high-growth my heart and I can't do it sort of defaulted to software. And we're gonna come back down. Everything else should still say the same BOB CIO, eight Nate. Okay, and then basically we're going to export side. And now this one is an export ever again. And the sequence of two on the sculptural. And then once this is done, we're going to go and look at our video itself on your computer. Go here, in my case to renderers and sequence until I'm going to run it on here. And that's what it would look like for Instagram Stories. Okay? So one of the little thing that we can do here, especially on the different ratios. What's popular sometimes is where you can put a little text buyers in and things I've asked above and below you video club. So to do that, what we can do here, if we go back to our sequence settings, I'm going to move my video up. I'm gonna change my sequence Settings Back to even Mumbai one square. So let it be 1080 by 1080 right here. So it's a one by one. Now, the other thing I can do then is I click on my video clip. Role play with the settings here. So I can make it just like passive gives me a little bit of real estate top and bottom. And then what you can do is put some texts and here you can leave a black background and put some white text in. So what I do is click on this. It'll new items go to come up and say OK. And I'm going to choose white. Spray Instagram me, say OK, drag the color mat underneath, and then go up here. Grandmom my, uh, my actual clip again and then do it a little bit, adjusting to the size. And then just use my text tool in here now wherever I want it. And you can just start typing in here. And then I'm actually in whites or fly. Double-click on this. And I go to my graphics panel. And we can do essential graphics edit. I can click on the color, make it black. Sale j. And then this will actually play too. Size it up. And what have you here? They are playing around with this link. So I'll drag this down to give us a little bit of a better view. And then I can center it using this guy. And if I change it to the selection tool, I can just click on it and drag it, damn indissoluble it. And I then this will be what your Instagram video will look like with text above it. You know, like if you want to give it a title of something else or somebody else that you want to. I'm show or explain whatever on Instagram. And they go and you put some other text on here as well. So that's it. That's how you're gonna do it. By exploring from Premier over to Instagram, experiment, load some tests, ones up to Instagram. So you see what it looks like actually on your phone or tablet and see how it looks as far as quality. You might have to come back in and change some of the rendering settings in premia and just see what works best for you, the footage that you're using. Hope you really enjoyed this and we'll see you in the next one. Thanks a lot.
