I went to art school when I was a 15 years old where I studied the basics of drawing, shadows and light (Mangas style) and after that I went to law school where I got my bachelors degree in private Law.

But my love and passion for art and animation was bigger than the love for law, I wasn't feeling conformable studying it but it was too late I couldn't just drop off I told myself at least get the degree and then do something else.

How to Download Class Files: Before we start the class, I just want to show you where you can download your files. If you head over to Projects and Resources, you can click on Download files, then you'll be prompted to Google Drive and you can download from there. If you have any question, you can just click on Discussions and then you can start a conversation, ask a question, and even share your projects. The other files, you can download them from here because I didn't put everything in the folder because it's going to be so huge to download. You can go to red.com/sample-red-files. Okay, this is the address. Make sure you write it down. As you can see right here, you can download 4K, 6K sample red footage raw so you can practice a little bit your color grading if you want. The other website I recommend is pexels.com/videos. Or you can just go to Google and type in any other sample footage or any other camera that is famous, that it's expensive and you will have to sample footage of the camera. If you ask me, that's pretty much all I wanted to say. One more thing I want to mention is that some files are going to be hard to find. For example, if you come over here to Cuts and you go to Age of airplanes like this, you won't find anything so you have to click again here, then click here, then Users, then this thing, then Desktop, then Age of Airplanes, and then you can find the videos in here. It comes like this, I didn't want to change stuff, so I won't miss stuff. I did download this one from the official training website of the Blackmagic Design. Guys, that's pretty much all, and let's start with the class. 3. Tips to Make Adobe Premiere Pro run Faster: I want to start by showing you a couple of tips to make Adobe Premiere Pro run faster for a smooth playback and to avoid any collateral damages like breaking screens and chairs. Anyway, let me just explain what I have here. I have this sample footage from the red camera, it's raw and it's a 5K resolution footage. If I come over here to my Sequence right-click and then go to Sequence settings. Here you can see what we're work in with here 5K resolution, 25 frames a second, you get the idea. Also, I went ahead and applied some basic auto contrast and lots to this clip. Just for the sake of explaining what I'm about to explain. If I come over here and click on "Play" you can see the lag, because it's high res, because it's raw, because I'm recording. Anyway, it just happens whether you have a good computer or not. You can never escape the lagging, especially if you work in high-res footage, 6K or 8K, and high frame rates. Let's see how we can fix this. First thing first, what you can do is come over here to the playback resolution and instead of working in full res, you can go ahead and decrease it, maybe to have 1/4, 1/8, 1/16. It doesn't matter, I'm going to choose 1/16. If I click "Play" now, you can see now it runs much smoother. Now, guys, you don't have to edit in high res. You don't have to, unless you're working with a shady footage, which I understand, then you can use proxies and we're going to talk about proxies on the next lecture. But for me, it's okay. You can work in low-res for smoother playback, especially if you're working on big projects and depending on your computer or you can try maybe if this is too low for you, you can try 1/8 and see how it goes depending on the specs of your computer. The next step then is to remove any effects that you add to your clip. In my case, I added a couple of color effects. I'm going to go ahead and toggle those off. Come over here to this plus icon, it's called the button editor, click here, and then find FX. Click and drag and put it here, whatever you want and then click "Okay". Now if I toggle on and off, you can see that the effects are still there, it just hides them. If I click "Play", it's going to help even more with the playback. You see this, amazing. If you want it back, you just click here again and boom. What else can we do again to make Adobe Premiere Pro faster? If we come over here to Edit and go to Preferences, look for Media Cache. If you are on a Mac, you go to Premier Pro and then Preferences, and then Media Cache. Now pay attention here where it says media cache files. You can see that the location is in my computer, which is bad. What you can do here is add your media cache into an external hard drive. You can go to Browse, I have my external hard drives right here and I can select one where I can save the media cache files. That will save you a lot of space on your computer. The next thing you can do is delete the media cache files because it will take a lot of space from your computer, and it will slow down Adobe Premiere Pro. Make sure you delete them every now and then, especially if you spend too much time on Adobe Premiere Pro, you don't have to change a database location in here. Down here we have media cache management and you want to set this one probably to automatically delete cache files older than and you enter the number of days. The number of days will depend on how much days you spend editing one single video. If you spend 20 days on a single video, you make here 20 days. If you spend less or more, you enter the correct number of days. Once you are happy with all these settings, you can go ahead and click "Okay". One more thing I want to point out is the autosave, this one. I have it automatically save projects every 15 minutes. But if you uncheck it, it's also going to help make Adobe Premiere Pro faster. But keep in mind that if you're not in a habit of saving your projects manually, I don't recommend that you uncheck automatically save projects. You should be in the habit of having the right arm on the mouse and the left arm on Control or Command S for saving. If you don't work like this, it's better to leave it automatically save. Because here is the thing, why did I tell you to uncheck automatically saved projects? Sometimes when you working on a big project and you add any effects on that stuff Adobe Premiere Pro will stop for a second, it will freeze to save whatever you doing and sometimes when it freezes like this, it may cause an Adobe Premiere Pro crashing. Guys, so just keep in mind everything that I'm telling you right now. Once everything is cool, we can go ahead and click on "Okay." Now one more thing. If I come over here to File, and then look for project Settings, General, right here where it says video rendering and playback or render make sure you have Open CL. Either you're on a Mac or you are on a computer, Open CL is the way to go. If you work with this one, you're going to run into a lot of problems, like slow playbacks, much more Adobe Premiere Pro crashing and rendering is just rubbish. Based on my personal experience, I highly recommend that you work with this thing or this option right here, Open CL. Okay, guys. One more thing is proxies but we're going to talk about proxies on the next lecture. 4. Working with Proxies: Now it is time to talk about proxies. What is a proxy? Proxy is a low resolution copy of your footage. Here's the thing, guys. If you're working with the high res footage, like 4K, 6K, or 8K and a high frame rate like 60, you always going to have problems with the playback. No matter what specs you have on your computer or laptop, you always going to have problems, especially if it's a big project, something like 10 minutes, 14 or more. This is where the proxies comes in. Also, if you don't want to use this playback resolution, you want to work with something in high res, proxies are the best choice. Guys, let's see how we can create this lowest copy of our 5K red footage. Right here, this is the original media. Go ahead and select it. If you have a lot of footage, go ahead and select them as well. For example, let's say, I want to create a proxy for this video on this one. Click on this one and select this one as well, then right-click, go to Proxy and then Create Proxies. Right here under Format, you can choose this one, H.264, and Preset you can choose between low resolution, medium resolution, and high resolution. This one is 540, I guess. This one is 720, and this one is 1080p. I'm going to go ahead for now and choose low resolution. Down here, make sure you have Next to Original Media in Proxy folders, which means it's going to go ahead and create the proxies near the original files and the documents in your computer. Guys, which means, if you go to your computer, to the original media where this one is located, you're going to find the folder called Proxy near it. Click "Okay", and then we wait for Media Encoder to open. It may take couple of minutes, seconds, hours, depending on the length of the projects that you're working on. Sometimes if you're working on bigger projects, it's going to take a lot of time to render, but it's worth it. Better to wait for the proxies than break in your computer or you can choose other different ways that we've talked about earlier, especially lowering the playback resolution. Once it is rendered, I'm going to go ahead and close Adobe Media Encoder. Now, how do we add the proxies to our timeline? This is pretty much easy, what we need to do is again, come over here and then look for this icon right here, the Proxy toggle button, hold it and drag it to whatever you want. Click "Okay". Now if I toggle it on and off, you can barely notice a difference in the resolution of the video. Pay attention here, we have resolution as full. Guys, this is without. I know it's still lagging guys because I'm recording the screen in the same time. This is weird. You can barely notice any difference in the resolution, and here's the thing, even with the proxy on, you can go ahead and apply your effects, whatever you want to the clip. It will be applied also to the original media, which means even if you have the Proxy button on, it's not going to affect what you do to the clip. If I go ahead and apply any adjustments, it's going to affect my original media as well. If you're exporting, you don't need to worry about this button as well. Is it on and off? It doesn't matter. Because when you export, it's going to export the original media and not the proxy. The proxy is just there for a smoother playback, it's not there to be exported by Adobe Media Encoder. Go ahead then and export in whatever you want, 5K, 6K, 4K depending on what you're working with. Hopefully that was a brief and clear explanation about proxies, why do we use them and how do we use them. Thanks for watching, and see you in the next lecture, when we will start with actual video editing stuff. See you. 5. Professional Video Editing Tips: Let's start with the video editing tips, guys. The first thing I want to talk about is titles. If I come over here to T, type tool, and click on the screen, I can easily add my title to my image or video. I'm going to go ahead and open Essential Graphics and then just increase the size of the title like this, and then just align everything in the center. If you don't have Essential Graphics here, you can go to Window and then find Essential Graphics. For the fonts, I'm going to keep the Gothic one. It's bold, so I'll like it better. It not a thin font. Now guys, as you can see here, we did add a title. Super easy, all good. Well, the thing is it does look like, I'm not sure if it the correct term, but it's receding into the background. There is no enough contrast, it doesn't stand out from the background. You always have to ask yourself when adding titles to your videos, does this contrast enough with the background or does it not? It's all going to depend on how much brighter the clip is and all that stuff. In my case right here, there is not enough contrast, so what can we do to improve this? First thing first, I'm going to come over here where the text ends and then just cut right here. Select the clip. Then under the effects controls panel, I'm going to look for Opacity, this one right here. Make sure we have normal and then just decrease this, like this a little bit. Now you can see it's already standing out. This is one way of contrasting the title with the background. Of course, there are a lot of things that you can do but I'm just showing you here a couple of tips. The next thing you can do is add a blur, so if I come over here to Effects and then type in Gaussian Blur, this one right here, or I can grab it and put it here. Look for it here and then just add a little bit like this. Just a little bit guys. Don't add too much because you are going to have some weird blurriness on the edges, and we don't want that, so just add a little bit. Just like this, you see right now that we did add enough contrast between the title and the background. Because you have to ask yourself guys, why are we adding such a big title in the middle? It's because we want the viewer to focus and be able to read whatever we want them to read. If this wasn't the case, if we just want to add something as a pop-up information or a note, then we can go ahead and add a lower third. Guys, one more thing you can do, of course, before we finish this first step, let me just undo real quick. There we go. Now, we can see the difference; like this, it doesn't look that good. If I come over here again to Effects or look for Tint, click and put it here. I can adjust this more here. Now you can see with this one, it does look better as well. You can also animate this tint effect if you want. Guys, there is a lot of possibilities out of creative solutions that we can apply. The main point here is that you need to make sure there was enough contrast between the foreground and the background so the viewer can really read what you want them to read. The next step I want to talk about is quick copy. Usually, a lot of people copy with Control Command C and then move the play head and then Control Command V to paste the clip wherever the play-head is, but there is a much faster way. If I click on this clip and then unlink the audio and the video, I can just hold "Alt" option and then drag as many copies as I want, wherever that I want. Guys, so this is a much faster, quicker way to copy clips instead of using Command Control C and Command Control V. I'm going to undo this real quick. The next step I want to talk about is the speed playback. If I go ahead and click on "Play", you can see that the video is playing at normal speed. If I click on "L", it's going to speed up the video, it's going to speed up more. So the more I click, the more it speeds up to video. This is a good tip or technique that you can use when you want to view the clip before you start editing. Let's says someone sends you an interview or a wedding video, you need to view the clip before you start any editing process because you never know what's going on. The other thing that you can do, of course, is that you can click on up and down arrows on your keyboard to move the play head from clip to clip. You can see if I click on "Down" it's going to move forward to the beginning of each clip, and if I click "Up", it's going to move backwards to the beginning of each clip. If I go ahead and select the entire clip, so I click "Unlink". If I select the clips hold and duplicate them like this. Let me give this one another color. Now, if I come over here and check V2 and uncheck V1, click on the up or down arrow, you can see that now I am toggling the up and not the down. I'm going to go ahead and then just adjust this another way. Now if I click up and down, you can see that I am toggling the V2. I uncheck and check here V1. Now I am working on the V1. If I select V1 and V2, it's going to toggle them both. So we jump into the next clip in V2, then it's going to jump on the next clip in V1, then the next clip and V1, and then the next clip in V2, so you get the idea. The next step is export while editing, and this tip, you will only use it if you have a strong computer. Because if you have a low spec computer, it may not work as it should, and it may give you problems while editing. So Control or Command M to expose or to render. Instead of clicking on "Export", you click on "Queue". Media Encoder will open like this, and you can start rendering your clip. Minimize the Media Encoder, and then you can create a new project and start editing whatever that you want to edit. Guys, the next step I want to share with you guys as called Hide Clips or Hide Media, whatever. You can see right here we have a lot of videos, some of them we use already on a timeline. Some of them we still haven't used. What can we do to free the spacing here? We can hide the clips. Let me switch the view to icon view, and now I can go ahead and select the clips that I don't need and then just hide them. Right-click and hide. Now, even though we have this icon down here, you can see it it says video used, but it doesn't matter. It's still bothering me, I need to free up some space, so I need to hide my clips. It makes it much better to work. I'm going to select on this one, scroll down, shift and select this one. Now I have three of them selected, right-click and then hide. This is the sequence, I'm not going to hide it. Now we only left with the clips that we still didn't use. If I go back to my list view, you can see we did free up and clean up the space. Now, you're probably thinking, where are my clips? What if I need them again? You can just right-click here and then view hidden. If you need them gone, right-click again and then uncheck view hidden. Guys, the next step I want to talk about is the Master Clip Effect. Let's say I want to apply a simple, nice grade to this video. If I come over here to Effects and then look for a Lumetri, I'm going to grab this one right here, cinematic two strip, drag it and put it on first video clip like this. Come over here to Effects Control. A camera look for creative, look, and then maybe try this one. You can reduce the intensity a little bit. Now, if I want to apply the same thing to the other clips, what I can do is click on the Lumetri control command C, selects the other clips, control command V. Now, everything has the same look. But what if I want to make some changes. What if I don't like this and I'm like or maybe the clients don't like whatever you did with the colors and he tells you that you need to change something, maybe add more blue, reduce the intensity of the look, whatever he demands. If I'm using this method, I'm going to have then to select a clip adjust it, and again select the others and command C or adjust them individually. Anyway, it's going to be a pain in the you know what. There's another way to fix this, and it's called the master clip effects. In order for the master clip to work, the footage need to be from the same source file. If you work in with random videos from pixels or any royalty-free website, it's not going to work. Guys, so what I'm going to do now is control command Z to undo everything. There we go. Now, with the first clip selected or any other clip, I'm going to come over here under the effects controls and click on master. You see this one? Master color. Now, I can grab this look for this plugin and put it here. Creative, skill, reduce the intensity, and now you can see all the clips look the same. If I zoom into the timeline, you can see that there is some red line beneath the effects. That means the master clip effects is applied. Now if I want to apply changes, I can select any clip and modify it. It's going to affect all the clips. Guys, so now it looks like the matrix. The next step I want to talk about is exporting sections. If you're working on a clip especially if you are calibrating a video, the client will put such a pressure on you to show him the progress, to show him what we're doing. Usually when I'm grading a clip or video, something, the client keep asking me, "Oh, so how is this going? Can you show me what are you doing? How's this going on?" Anyway, you know what I'm talking about. It's a good idea to export a section or a selection from your clip just as a sample to show it to your client or as a sample if want to put it on your social media as a teaser or whatever. Anyway, to export section, you come over here to the timeline, click on a Playhead and you select from where to where you want to export. I want to export from here, click I on your keyboard to here, click O on your keyboard, or to here. It doesn't matter. I and O, Control Command M. Guys, now if I export it will only export my selection. How do I know? If you look here, you can see the selection that we've made earlier, sequence in and out, export and then it will export. The next step is ins and outs. As you can see we have this video, it's almost two hours. It's about my Photoshop course. Let's say I want to make a promo of this video and put it on YouTube for advertising. I need to select the important scenes or clips that I will use to create an engaging or attractive promo. Instead of bringing the clip to the timeline and then find whatever I need to find with the playhead and then cut in, what we can do is to use ins and outs. I can double-click on my clip right here. This one will open, and I can use this playhead to select the clips that I want to use in the promo. I can click I to select and O to select again. Like this. Then I can grab this and put it here, and I can go ahead and delete this one and put this one here. You get the idea. Let's say I want to use this part too. I can click I and O to make my selection and then grab it, put it here and then put it here. You can of course give them a name, Part 1, Part 2 so you won't get confused. Guys, I will continue doing so until I have all the clips that I want. Guys, so you can either drag from the video to the project or you can drag directly to the timeline, whatever you want to do. 6. More Professional Video editing Tips : Adjustment layers. Let's say we want to apply an effect to all these clips that we have right here, but we cannot use the master clip effects because these videos are not from the same source file. All we can do, of course, is to apply the adjustment layers. If you come over here to File, New, you look for Adjustment Layer. What is it? You can see it's grayed out. Why? Because we need to select the sequence. File, New. If you go to Adjustment Layer, it's here. Select whatever the time-base or the time frame on your timeline and then click "Okay". Now I want to bring it to the timeline, put it on top and then adjust it so it can fit the length of the clip. If it's not snapping, make sure you click S on your keyboard maybe snapping is not activated. Here we go. Now with the adjustment layer selected, I can go ahead and apply a slight color adjustment to my clips. Now, since all these videos that I have right right on my timeline are shots with the red camera and they're all sample from the red camera, I'm going to go ahead right here to Effects and type red, and then look for red colors. Here we go. Here it is under the folder read. I'm going to choose something cold, sad, blue, like this blue moon right here. As you can see, it will go ahead and apply the color grade to all my clips. This one, I don't need it, so I can delete it. Then click here on the "Leads", here we go, select the Adjustment Layer and then I can just look for Lumetri, Creative and then reduce the intensity a little bit like this. Next, let's say for example we want to apply a crop, I can come over here to Effects click on "Crop" and then apply crop to 2D Adjustment Layer. I don't know what happens some times my tongue cannot spell the words. Like this under Effect Controls we can look for Crop. So top it's going to be 12 and bottom it's going to be 12. We can have those cinematic bars or cinematic look whatever you want to call them. Click on the Effects right here for the text, position up a little bit. Anyway guys, you know now how to use adjustment layers. It's a good technique or tip that you can use in your video editing process or workflow. Instead of importing videos into the project's panel right here and then organizing your videos inside the bands in Adobe Premiere Pro, you can do this on your computer first and then import to the folder in Adobe Premiere Pro. If you're on a Mac, you can use Finder. If I double-click right here, you can see that I have my folder right here with videos. If I click, you can see how everything is organized with the files and the names, and everything looks cute. Now I can click on the folder "Videos" and then click on "Import Folder". Now I can hit "Control" or "Command N" for new sequence and then choose this one right here. No video is recorded with the ARRI camera, but the settings are the same as what I need some I'm going to choose this one and then "Okay", there we go. Now we can start importing our videos. One cool thing that you can do actually is go ahead and open the folder with the video and then you can select the videos, right-click and then choose a color. Okay, you can label them like this. Now, if I go ahead and import my videos, you can see that it will be imported with the color code that we've chosen earlier. Changing the thumbnail of your videos. As you can see right here, we have this video and it's a quite long video. If I hover over it, you can see what's going on. But if I remove my mouse, you can see that the thumbnail is fixed on this particular picture. For any x, y reason, you would need to change the thumbnail of your videos, maybe to recognize the scene that you want to import to the timeline or for any other reason. Now to do that, it's simple. You can double-click on the clip, but instead of watching the clip each time to find the scene that you're looking for, we can just move the play ahead until you find the scene that you want and then just click "I". Now if I click here, you can see that the thumbnail has changed to the specific scene that I want. Now if I'm working and then I need it, I can go straight to that video without looking for it. Finally, the final tip, audio looping. As you can see here, we have this video of mine talking again, and I want to play a song in the background, but as you can see right here, the song is only one minute, but the video is almost five or six minutes. I really like this song and I want to apply it. So how can we loop this song over and over and over again for the full length of the video? Now if you do this, this is not looping. In other words, it's a technique that you can do manually where you have to find the right beats to loop. But is there any automatic way to do it? Yes, we can do it in Adobe Audition. What you're going to do right here is go to Edit and then click on "Edit in Adobe Audition" and then choose "Sequence". Give it a name. For example, I will name it Loop. You don't have to select anything from the timeline guys. Click "Okay" here. Once this is open, you're going to come over here to File, New and then multi-track session. Same name, Loop, make sure you have stereo here guys, very important, this one. Now I'm going to go ahead and grab from here the audio that I want to loop, it's this one right here, Premise Extracted. Click and drag it to the timeline, make sure you have properties here. If you cannot find it, just click on this thing and then look for Properties. Click on "Enable Remix". Right here where it says target duration, I'm going to go ahead and change one to five or six minutes. Let's make it six. Here we go, let me zoom out like this. As you can see right here, Adobe Audition will go ahead and find the right beats and it will loop the audio over and over again, around that beat until the full length of the audio. You can see this zigzag wavy lines, these are the loops and it does a pretty good job. I promise it does pretty good, amazing job. You can try from here with minimum loop. If you don't like eight beat, you can increase it to 10 or 20 and see which one you like best. I don't recommend increasing all the way to maximum, although sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't work. You're going to have something like this and this is very bad. In my case, when I increase to maximum loop right here, it sounds like hell, like shit. So I'm going to go ahead and decrease it to around 20, 20 is perfect for me right here for this audio that I have. The less those zigzag lines, the best. I just wanted to hear, anyway it does an amazing job. Once you're happy here, File, Export and then Export to Adobe Premiere Pro. I'm going to leave it like this, the name is fine. Exports, give it a moment. I'm going to put it on audio number 3, and here we have. Now I think I messed up here with the length of the audio, it's not the same as the length of the video, but it's not a problem. Delete this one, we don't need it for this one here. Final thing we can do is add some audio transitions. We don't have to start with constant gain because as you can see here the audio starts very slow. You can see right here from the timeline it's like there is a constant gain by default. But we can add an exponential fade we can cut like this, clear and then add an exponential fade like this, increase the size of it a little bit like this and we're good to go. Guys, that was it and see you on the next one. 7. Different Cuts Techniques: In this lecture, I want to show you different cut techniques that you can use to improve your video editing skills in Adobe Premiere Pro. This is supposed to be very exciting. Let's start with the first one, the most basic one that everybody uses, which is just a simple cut. Basically you just click ''C'' for the Cut tool and then you cut and you separate. Then you can add another clip like this and here we go. Just give it another color. Guys, this is the basic, simple normal cut that everybody uses. The next cut I want to talk about is called the jump cut. We use it's literally to jump in time, therefore creating a more exciting interests in video to watch. Let me show you this video so we can get an idea about the jump cuts. As you can see right here on the timeline, I have the video already here. I want to adjust it to this song, so I'm going to go ahead and place the music here. I have it on mute for now. I'm going to zoom into the timeline. Right here we can see from the waves on the audio, that the beat starts here, so I'm going to cut here. Then I'm going to move the play head, here when she raises her legs up then cut, ripple delete. Move a little bit like this, and then cut here. Then move a little bit right when she wants to raise her second leg, I'm going to cut here again and then move a little bit to play head here. I'm trying to keep these cuts the same length. Now let's go back here when she brings her legs down and she's trying to get up. Now before she gets up, I'm going to cut again and then cut here again when she tries to turn like this. Here we go. Here we have it. I will now just adjust the length of the video. Cool. As you can see right here guys, instead of watching how she does the entire move, we jump cut to the final move or results. Now of course, I went ahead and try to mimic the silhouette challenge that you see on TikTok. Of course, we can add the adjustment layer. Find new adjustment layer, bring it here, adjust the length, click on it. Go to tints, apply tints. We want from black to red. Something like this. Let's go ahead to Blend Mode, then try Linear Burn. Guys, of course, we can add more adjustments to the video like lumetri colors and then adjust the shadows and the blacks. But guys, we're not trying to recreate the TikTok look, I just try to show you how you can use the jump cuts in real life. The next cuts I want to talk about are the J cuts and the L cuts. These cuts are pretty much the same, it's the same technique almost. We use them to let the audience know what's going to happen. What is about to happen before it happens. Let me show you first how to use the J cuts and then we'll jump to the L cuts. As you can see here, we have two clips. The first one with this man talking. How the airplanes changed the world. It was really important to go out and shoot. The other one with the plane taking off. To use the J cut, this is what we're going to do. I'm going to take this clip and then put it on top of this one like this, unlink, and then I'm going to trim the video right here. Now I'm letting the audience know what's going to happen next just by using the audio and the audios could be either a narrative, a guy talking or a man or whatever, or sound design like I'm using right here. Now if I click "Play.". Has changed the world. It was really important to go out and shoot. Usually I would go ahead and trim the audio one, but since this is a narrative, I cannot do it because we need to listen to the full interview. This is why I am not going to trim this audio, but if it was something like a sound design or an effect, I would just go ahead and trim it. We move it from here. Now, with the L cut. The L cut is pretty much the same as I said earlier as the J cuts. But now instead of trimming the video, we're going to trim the audio like this. We're going to let the audience see the video first, let them know what's coming by watching the video instead of listening to the audio. Then we're going to put the audio right here just when the first clip is finished. How the airplanes changed the world. It was really important to go out and shoot. Guys, this cut is called the action/the perspective cut because we cut in the middle of an action and then we switch to a different angle of the camera. To do this as you can see here, we have three videos, they're pretty much the same. Well they are the same. They're just shot from different angles. What you need to do here is find the right moment to cut, to create that continuity, to create that flow in the movement to make it look like it's just one shot. Anyway, I have my three videos lay down here. Let me show you how I'm going to proceed with the cutting. First things first, I'm going to be moving the play head like this, then right here when he tries to jump, you see the foot is on the floor, flat on the floor, I'm going to cut here. Ripple delete. Now I'm going to move to this shots and now see the foot is still on the floor now what he's trying to do is jump, go ahead. I'm just clicking on the right arrow on my keyboard to move frame by frame. Now here it's flat. Once it's extending like this, I'm going to cut here again. Control Command Z cuts here and ripple deletes. Then I'm going to move the play head again and then right when the ball is above the basket net like this, I'm going to cut here again. Then move through the shots. Move, move, move, and then when the ball is here, like this, I'm going to cut here again, and here we have this. Now, if I click on "Play". Once you add the music and everything, it's going to look awesome, it's going to look good. It is more exciting than just having one shot. A lot of work because we have to shoot from different angles, but the results are amazing, and it makes you look very, very professional. Let's watch again. Full screen. Hold on, let me do this from the beginning. Full screen. Click on "Play". Here we have it. Next is cutaway, and we use cutaways to add visuals to a narrative or just to inform the viewer of what's going on with the video. Again, right here in this example, we have me talking which is a narrative, so instead of the full video, just people look into my head talking, I can add B-rolls. To do that, I'm just going to go ahead and cut here and then move to the end and then cut again here, and then I'm going to go ahead right-click "Unlink" and then right-click and "Clear". Now, I can go to my folders with the B-rolls, and I can start adding whatever area that I want. I'm just going to grab the video because we need the narrative to stay the same. The audio should stay the same, we're just changing the videos. Basically, we're just trying to make people understand more what's going on with the video by using the cutaways. Next is the match cuts. Basically, what we're doing here is that we cut the action of the character and the right frame to another frame or to the next frame, creating that sweet, smooth motion. You're going to understand better when we start actually making the cuts. Right here, as we can see, I have different cuts, I'm wearing same T-shirts, I have to come around the tripod, and I'm jumping with different T-shirts. Now, let's see how we can create these cuts. I'm going to go out and drag the first cut to the timeline like this, and then just unlink the video, and then just mute the audio for the moment. I'm going to click on "Play". I'm jumping here. I'm going to move to play it frame by frame. Right here, when I touch the ground, I'm going to make a cut. Delete this, and then look for cut 2, and then just find the right frames. I'm jumping, I touched the ground, my hands are going down. On here, and then move this around here, and then I will place the cut here. Now, if we just play these two clips, you can see what's going on in here. Again, I want to keep moving. Delete this. Next, what I wanted to do is that I want to cut to the next frame before my dad bod stop bouncing. I'm just looking for the right frame. Boom, the body stops bouncing around here. Right here, I'm going to cut again. Find cut number 3, and then cut here and here. Here we go. Now, let's see what we have here. Maybe we should cut in this then. Here we go, Ripple Delete. Try again. This looks better. Now, the next thing I'm going to do here is I'm going to design the sound a little bit to make it look more interesting. I already have the clap that I do with my feet when I jump, the Mozart right here, this one, I'm going to use it. Now, what I want to do next is that I'm going to add an effect, a glitch effects just right here. Let me zoom in a little bit before I change to the other color, around here. Finally, I can make some background music right here. Cut here. I can hide those that I don't need now just to save some space. I'm just going to go ahead and increase the audio from this one and this one, so they won't get mixed in with the sound of the background music because I really want these effects to stand out. Finally, before we finish the video, I'm just going to go ahead and make a cut here, a cut here, because I need these effects again. Hold "Alt" and "Option" and drag it here to the end of this video right here. Now, if we click on "Play". That's pretty much all, guys. I'll see you in the next one. 8. Animating with Keyframes: Before we start with text animations, I want to explain how you can work with keyframes and curves in Adobe Premiere Pro because this is very important if you want to do any type of animations. First thing first, let's start with the basic text animation. I'm going to select the "Type" tool right here, click on my sequence, drag, then type in pretty much anything, my name for example, go back to the selection tool, and then just adjust this bounding box. Now, if you come over here to the effects controls panel, you can see that we have different options right here. If you cannot see this panel, you can come over here to Window and then look for effects control, the shortcut is Shift plus 5. Let's start with the position, okay? Let's say we want to animate the position. I'm going to go ahead and place this thing here and you can see this stopwatch right here beside the position. I'm going to go ahead and add a new keyframe. You can see here that I have a keyframe, it's right here. Now I can move a little bit, the play head, and then adjust the position of my type, move it to the right. As you can see now, right here we have keyframes. If you cannot see this window, you just need to move the panels like this, just try to adjust your UI. Now if I click "Play", you can see what it's doing so I'm going to go ahead and move it a little bit further. To try now, okay this is better. Now let's say for any x, y reason, I want this type to hold in this place for a minute before going down. What you can do is click here to add a new key and then move a little bit further, and then I can bring this type down like this. Now if I click on Play, we can see what it's doing. Let's say we wanted to stop here for a second and then move here. I'm going to do the same. Click on Add keyframe, then move a little bit, and then I want it to move to the left, again stop for a little bit, and then go up. There we go. Okay guys. You can either move the play head to move between keyframes or you can click on these arrows like this, it's much easier. Now if I click "Play", you can see what I'm talking about. Let's go ahead and try and mix it with scaling. Let's say I want it to start small like this, and then move here and then gets bigger, and then move again and hold the same size, move again it's smaller, move again hold the same size, move again get bigger a little bit, move again hold the same size, and then move again and way bigger this time. Let's go ahead and try the same. All right, looks good. Now let's talk about ease in and ease out because if you ask me, this animation does look pretty much generic. The way to know that it's generic is that if I come over here where it says scale or position, and then toggle this arrow down. If I click here you you see the curves, and you can see the shape of the curve. It's like a couple of rectangles or triangles, we don't have smooth curves in here. We have sharp edges, curves and that means that this is a generic animation. You could click here, for example, let me show you. I can click here and adjust the line, but this is a little bit of an advanced technique I don't recommend you use until you know what you are doing. Control command Z to undo. On the other hand, what you can do is add ease in and ease out. The rule of animation is that you start with ease outs, select both keyframes, then right-click, and then you select ease out. Then you move to the next keyframe, and then right-click "Temporal Interpolation", and then ease in. This is the rule. Ease out, ease in, ease out, ease in and so on. But I want to try something different so I'm going to select the entire keyframes, our downloads is not ready, here we go. Right-click and I want to select bezier. Now if I click on Play to see the animation, you can see how cool it looks. That was pretty much everything you need to know about working with keyframes and curves in Adobe Premiere Pro. Same things apply for the audio if you want to animate it. Now I'm going to go ahead and finish editing this clip and see you in the next one. 9. Creative Text Animations in Premiere Pro: Now this lecture was supposed to be exciting guys because I'm going to be sharing with you my favorite text effects/animation in Adobe Premiere Pro. When we talk about text animation or motion graphics, nothing beats After Effects. But that doesn't mean that we cannot pull some amazing creative text effects in Adobe Premiere Pro. Let's see how we can do this. The first one I want to start with is called Roughen Edges. As you can see right here I have the video, right here. The first thing you're going to do is I'll select everything, go to File, New and then look for Legacy Title. Leave everything as it is, I'm just going to go ahead and change the name to Woods, there we go, type in Okay. This window will open with the type tool selected, click on it and then click and drag like this. I'm going to go ahead and change the font size to 400. Let me just adjust the UI like this real quick here we go. Type in the woods or maybe the woods not woods like this, The Woods. There we go, select the Selection tool and then just adjust the bounding box. Then I'm going to go ahead and change the font family to something that will suit the video or the mood of the video. Probably this font, Verdana , move the bounding box more, there we go. Then I'm going to go ahead and center the text like this. Once you're done with everything, you can close this window, now you have your texts right here. Click on it and then put it on top of your video. I'm going to go ahead now and adjust the length of the texts to the same duration of the video. Now make sure you have the play head right in the beginning of everything. Now, click on a Text Legacy, and under the effects controls I'm going to go ahead real quick and just adjust the position a little bit like this. Go to Effects panel and then look for Roughen Edges. This one right here. Click on it and then put it on the text legacy like this. Scroll down on the Effects Controls panel. Again, make sure the play head is at the beginning of everything. Now, you can see right here that we have border. I'm going to go ahead and change the border to 500, and then add or click on the stopwatch to add the keyframe. Then I'm going to move the play head to the end of everything and then change the border to zero like this, complexity to one, and then right here where it says Edge Type you can leave as roughen, or you can change it to spiky. It doesn't matter pretty much you going to have the same effects. Now, I'm going to go ahead and right-click on those keyframes and then ease out and ease in. Now if I click Play, you can see it's forming but right here, the words we can barely see the S. I'm going to again reposition it down a little bit like this so we have enough contrast, and here we have it. You can see that when I click Play, the effect does take quite some time to manifest. It does take some time to appear, it doesn't appear right away. How do we fix this? Again, bring the play head to the beginning, click here, look for Border, click on this arrow, now you will have those curves, those animation Bezier curve. Click here on this one and then grab the handles and then just put it down like this. Now if I click on Play, you can see that the animation appearance right away. Let's play again in normal speed and here you have it guys, this is the first animation. Next effect is basic 3D and the animation we're going to do is spinning barrel animation. Again, as before, come over here to File, New and we want to add a legacy title I'm going to type in serve adjust this a little bit like this choose type tool. Type in Surfing I cannot see a fan, so we're going to change the color to black. We have enough contrast between the background and foreground and we will adjust the font size, change the font to something cool like font trust here we go and center everything close this take the surf and put it here the title legacy, adjusted to the clip. Make sure it snaps here. Select it and then effects and the effects we're going to type basic 3D this one put it here. Now scroll down in your effects controls panel make sure the play head is at the beginning where it says, tilt I'm going to add six x value. You see when I type x, it doesn't show on the backside because the letters are in capital. You cannot type in capitals values. You need to type small letters, values like this. Six x add stopwatch. Move the play head here before the end of the video because we want the title to stop so people can read it, change the value back to zero. Now if I click on Play you can see that it's spinning. What we need to do now is ease in, ease out the keyframes. Always you start with ease out and ease in. Next what I want to do is that I want to spin into start fast and then slow down as the video plays. Right here it tilts, click on the arrow, we have the curves. Now what you want to do is that you want to click on handle and then drag to the left like this. Make sure you drag in a straight line, don't go up and don't go down, keep it in a straight line. Do the same thing for this one. Now if I click Play, you can see that it's spinning fast and then it slows down , there we go. Now let's take it up a notch and we're going to add a blur to the stain, to the spinning to make it a real. Type in blur here and then selects directional blur, apply the effect to the Legacy Title. Scroll down, find blur length, I'm going to change the value to 26 at the keyframe, and then move right here before the spinning stops, I'm going to add another keyframe. This one is zero, and same thing ease out and ease in now if we play. Next is background mask or video inside a text. You've probably seen this effect 1,000 times. Let's see how we can do it in Adobe Premiere Pro. I have my sequence right here, go ahead and select your type tool. Click on Screen, I'm going to go ahead and type in Marrakesh. Go ahead and open Essential Graphics. Now I'm just going to adjust the size like this and center every thing, center again. There we go. One thing you should keep in mind is that you need to work with a bold fonts like this one. Don't choose a regular fonts like this one right here, the Gotham nights. Let me switch to the selection tool so I can change the fonts, there we go. This one is not going to work with this specific effects, so you need something bold like this one. The Gill Sans Ultra Bold, or you can choose any other bold font that you want to work with. Next, you see right here where we have the text layer, go ahead and click on the ''New layer'', and then "From File'', and then choose your video. Here we go. Now put the text layer on top of the video layer, scroll down while your text layer is selected, and then mask with texts. Here we have it. You can of course, select the video and position it as you wish. Now if we play, we have this beautiful effects. One more thing as now we need to animate everything, so go ahead and select both by holding "Shift", "Right-click" and then "Create Group", now select the group, come over here to "Effects Controls", right here where it says "Group 01", open the arrow, "Scale", I'm going to go ahead and change the value to 0, add stopwatch, move the play head here, and then change it back to 100. Now again, I want the animation to start fast and then slow down, so instead of working with the curves again, I'm want to select both key frames, right-click and then "Continuous Bezier". Let's take a look at the final results. Here we have it. The next effect on the line is the "Glitch". You can see right here, I already have the title "Legacy", and I have the sound effects for the "Glitch". I'm going to grab my texts, put it here, because I don't want the "Glitch" to start right away. Over here. Then just adjust it to the video. Here we go. Now I'm going to come over here to "Effects" and then look for "Block Dissolve". This one drag it, put it here, make sure the play head is at the beginning of the title legacy, like this, scroll down. Then you can see right here we have "Transition Completion". I'm going to go ahead and change the value to 100, add a stopwatch, and then move here a little bit, and change it back to 0. You can see that the duration of the effect is not a lot because this is a glitch, it should be around three seconds or so. Now let's see what we have here. Cool. Now I'm going to go ahead and change the block width to 130 and block height to 130 as well, it maybe less. See. I just put it back to 136. Cool. Now I'm going to go ahead and look for another effects and it's "VR Glitch". This one, "VR Digital Glitch", add it here, bring the play head to the beginning. The master amplitude is what controls the glitch, so 100, I'm going to leave it like this and then add a stopwatch, then click here to move to the next key frame and change this back to 0. Let's see what we have now, that's cool. Now let's add the sound effects here. Let me zoom in a little bit, and just mute this for now. I'm just going to adjust those key frames and zoom in. Adjust those key frames to the sound effects. There we go. I Just ease in and out everything, and the final results will look like this. The final one for this lecture is the wiggle texts effect or the wiggle text animation. Now this one is very cool, have seen it used a lot and here's how to do it. First thing first is that you can see right here that I already added my title legacy. I'm going to go ahead, put it here, and then adjust it. One quick tip here is that if you want to zoom in or out your videos in a timeline, you can come over here to this area where there is nothing, hold "Alt" or "Option", and then with the middle mouse button, you can scroll up or down to adjust the size as you wish. Now look for Turbulent Displace", which we already did, click on the "Effects", put it here on the title legacy, scroll down. Now you can see right here where it says "Displacements", if you click, you can find a lot of choices, options. You can experiment with all of these, but for the sake of this lecture, I'm going to go with "Turbulent" because this is the one I want to explain. The amount is 50 by default, I want to increase it to 40, maybe to 42. Size, something around 36, 34, like this. Now right here, complexity will add the bubbles to the text, so as you increase the complexity, you get more bubbles to the texts. Just find something nice. I'm going to type in 1.8. "Evolution"; I'm going to change it as well. So what it does is that's going to loop the wiggle displacement effects throughout the video, so I'm going to increase it to 40. Now the offset turbulence is we're going to make the animation. We're going to make the wiggle animation. Make sure the play head is at the beginning of the timeline. Add the stopwatch or a key frame, whatever you want to call it, move to the end like this because you want the text to move through the entire video, and now go ahead and increase those numbers. Increase the numbers to the rights and to the lefts. Just like this, there we go. Keep in mind that the more you increase these two numbers, the more it's going to wiggle. How much you need to increase will depend on what type of fonts you're working with and all that stuff. Experimentals guys, experimentals. Now let's see how it looks like in normal speed. Guys that's everything about this lecture, this is Part 1 of texts animation, and see you in Part 2. 10. Text Animations-Neon and Underwater: Hello everyone and welcome back to this lecture. We're going to be doing now Text Animations Part 2, and we will start with the Neon Text Animation. As you can see right here, I have my image and a timeline that will act as a background. Go ahead and select the type tool, and now I'm going to go ahead and click on my screen like this, and then I'm going to type in something creative like Neon God. Go back to the Selection tool, so I can just click "V" on the keyboard. I'm going to go ahead and then just increase this and then adjust it right here in the center, like this. Under Effect Controls, you can see right here the texts Neon God. Go ahead and click on this arrow. I'm going to change the font to something that will suit the Neon animation, like this one right here. Maybe I need to scale this down a little bit like this, I will go maybe more. Next, I'll go and then change the color. Something pinkish, be here, click "Okay" Now what I want to do is add a rectangle right here. You can see the rectangle tool right here, click on it and hold, you can see that we have the pen tool, so you can draw any shape that you want, or you can choose from these shapes. I want to choose a rectangle, and then just draw a rectangle like this. Something like this right here where it says, "Shape 01," go ahead and click on the arrow. If you have fill checked, make sure you uncheck fill, and you can adjust the stroke size from here, okay guys. I want to go ahead and open Essential Graphics, and then just adjust this thin and center, center into the text. You can see right here when I'm trying to select the text, it goes and selects the shape. What you can do, of course in this case is that you can lock the shape, and now if I select the text, it's going to select the text. I can just center the text as well in the middle and here we have it. Now, the next step will be to duplicate. This is a bit tricky guys, we have to duplicate it two times. I'm going to unlock the shape, and then I'm going to make the videos on a timeline a bit smaller like this so we can work with this thing. Now I'm going to put the shape on top like this, and then hold option, click on a text and then duplicate it two times, and you duplicate the shape one time but not before we change the color because I almost forgot, here we go, now we go and duplicate this. Select both shapes, and then I'm going to change the color so we won't get confused, and then for the duplicate, I'm going to change the color as well so we don't get confused, there we go. Now select this one, the second duplicates, this one, and then go to Effects and then look for Gaussian Blur. For graphic designers this is the same procedure as making Neon stuff and Adobe Photoshop, so we're going to go ahead and look for Gaussian Blur, there we go, and then add it here to the second dup. Here we go, I'm going to go ahead and adjust the blurriness to 40. Do the same thing for the third duplicate of the texts, add Gaussian Blur again. But this time we're going to increase it because we want the blur to spread. But you can see right here that it's only going horizontally. So we can change the blur dimensions from horizontal to horizontal and vertical. Here we go. Now I'm going to just adjust this thin because we want it to spread all over like this, so find a nice look. Guys, remember this is a creative process, so my values are going to be different from yours, but the techniques are the same. Then I'm going to look for Opacity and then just reduce the opacity a little bit, there we go, just like this. You can see that it's looking good. Now, I'm going to go ahead and do the same thing for the box. So select the one on the top and then add Gaussian Blur, and then just add blurriness like this, and then reduce the opacity. I'm just going to adjust the UI real quick. Now we can forget about the shapes, we can just like them if you want, and we're just going to focus on the duplicated type. So we have right here type Number 1 and type Number 2. For the strobe effects, we're going to go ahead and make cuts on text Number 2 and text Number 3. Then you're going to have to choose a nice interval that you want to do. So I'm going to put my play head at the beginning, and then hold shifts, and then right arrow two times so I can move 10 frames, five plus five. We just zoom in, and then I'm going to cut on text Number 3 and and text Number 2, and then move again without holding shift, this time I'm going to move a three frames and then cut again, so I'm just using the keyboard. Same thing again, hold shifts and then 1, 2, cut, and then 1, 2, 3 without holding the shifts, and then cut again. I'm going to do this throughout the duration of the video. I'm speeding this part and I'm doing and voice-over over the speedy parts, because I cannot speed my voice, I'm going to sound weird. Of course you can switch the intervals, you don't have to go the same pace, you can switch it if you want. For example, you can hold shift, move three times and then cut, four times, whatever we want to do, mix it a bit. Now I want to switch to the selection tool and then just delete those by selecting them and then pressing backward on my keyboard. I can add my sound effects, cut it here. Finally what I can do is that I can select my first text, the one with nothing, just the color, and then I can scroll down and then make the color just a bit brighter, I add in some whites like this. Of course we can do the same for the bounding box. Make this thing a bit brighter like this. Now let's see the final result. Next is, Under the Water Animation. So I have my underwater here footage, I'm going to go ahead again and select my type tool. Click on the image, texts, so you can see that I'm working with a font similar to the one used in the movie "Nemo." Increase the size to your liking, now I'm going to come over here, click on this red box, and then I'm just going to type in "Under Water." There we go. I'm so creative guys, I'm so creative. Essential graphics, and I'm just going to align this. Now, I'm going to go ahead and adjust the length to the video of this texts, and then with the text selected, come over here to Effects, and then I'm going to look for Turbulent Displays. Here we go, this one, double-click and it will be added to the text, so this has a nice tip. Now, scroll down under your Effect Controls, and you can see the effects right here, turbulence displays. Make sure the play head is at the beginning, this one is pretty much similar to the Wiggle Effects. Click on the Offsets and then just move this thing here to the end of the video, and then you can increase the x value. If you hold Shift, it's going to increase even faster. Complexity, I'm just going to increase it a bit, 1.6 or seven, again, I'm going to place the play head to the beginning. Evolution right now is at zero, so I'm going to leave it like this and add a key frame, and then move to the next key frame, and then increase it to something like this. Now if we click "Play." Now, finally, I'm going to go ahead and look for opacity or the text, and then I'm just going to decrease the opacity just a little bit. Now, just decrease it to your liking. Now let's see the final result. You can see how it looks, it looks pretty much good. 11. Text Animations- Typewriter and Write-on: Next is typewriter. I'm going to come over here to my Type tool and then just click on my image like this. Then I'm going to come over here to Effects Controls, click here. Then you may want to choose a font that will suit or that will go with the typewriter. I'm going to be working with this one, Stampwriter-Kit. Now, you can increase the size of your font from here. Once you do that, I'm going to come back here and then type in the first letter, S. Make sure you click inside the red box. Right here where it says source text I'm going to go ahead and click to add a key-frame, this one. Then I'm going to come over here to step forward and then I'm going to click four times so I can move four frames. You can see right here I moved four frames. Click here again and add another letter. I'm going to keep doing this until I finish my word, and I was thinking about typing just stamp here. Move again. Then again, 1, 2, 3, 4, click on M, 1, 2, 3, 4, and then the last one. I'm just going to change the color of this, and then I will just move It a little bit here because I don't want it to start right away. If I click "Play" you see what we have here. If you want to make it slower, you can just increase the length of the text like this and it will get slower. The more you increase, the slower it gets. Once it's as slow as you want it to be, just cut here, delete. Now let's take a look at the full animation at normal speed. The last one in this lecture is Write-On text animation and this is probably the most complicated one, okay guys? Let's see how we can do this. First thing first again, I'm going to go ahead and select my type tool. I wanted the text to be in this empty area. I'm just going to click here again. Text, so I'm choosing Fontrust and I'm increasing the size as I wish. Now I'm going to go ahead and type in holidays. There we go. I'm just going to adjust the text to the video. The next thing I'm going to do is that under Project I'm going to come here where it says New Item, and then I will add Transparent Video. I'm going to go ahead and add the transparent video right here, again adjust the length to fit the video. Now on to effects, I'm going to go ahead and look for Write-On effect and put it on transparent video. Don't put it on the text. I will go ahead and hide this video so we can work on the text. Click on the eye poke the eye like this, and here we go. I will zoom in like this. There we have it. Scroll down under the effects controls. Right here, under the right effects, I'm going to go ahead and adjust the brush size to 20. Click on Write-On so you can select the brush. There we go, and just put it here. Stroke length, I'm going to put 10. Then brush space, I'm going to put.001 because if you leave it at.10 you may have a brush with bubbly edges. One one more thing I'm going to do before we start tracing holidays is that I'm going to go ahead and select the text and then just change the color of the text to green so we can track it easily. It's easy to track the green color and it's hard to track other colors. Something like this. Now select the Transparent Video. Select the Write-On. Make sure you have the brush right here before the H. Go ahead and add the stopwatch to the position of the brush. Make sure you select Write-On. Then I'm going to use my keyboards arrow to move forward a couple of frames. Make sure this thing is selected, Write-On, and then trace like this. When you trace it can only go one way. Again, if you go like this, one way, move the play head so you can go another way, like this. Then I'm going to move two frames or three and then boom. Then move a couple of frames, and then boom. Then move couple of frames. You can see right here that I'm moving, and then boom. Like this. You can of course, adjust the brush stroke using these anchor points. Make sure that when you're moving the brush, that you hold the brush from the side, from the side of the circle, not from the middle. I'm going to move a couple of frames and then move to the O. So you get the idea. I'm going to go ahead and speed up the process because it's a bit tedious and it takes time. Now after you do this, you're going to select the text holidays, bring this thing to the beginning. Then look for Track Matte key. Here we go, and put it on top of the text. Now if I click on "Play" now with the text selected, you can see right here Track Matte Key, change it to video 3. Now if I click on "Play" you can see what's going on here, you get the idea. Now bring it back to video, head to the screen. Here's the color of the text because we done with the green color so put it back to white. You can see it nice. Now if you want to adjust this, increase the size, whatever, what you can do is that select the transparent video and the text, right click, Nest, then click here. We can scale this thing up or down. Adjust the position like this. Now if we click "Play" let's see how it looks. That was pretty much all my favorite text animations to do in Adobe Premiere Pro. Go ahead and do these, Practice them. It's really nice. Of course, it doesn't beat After Effects but I think if you're just working in Adobe Premiere Pro, these are super nice. Creativity has no limits. You can go out and experiment and all that stuff. Thanks for watching and see you next time. 12. Creative Video Effects in Premiere Pro: In this video, I going to be sharing with you guys my favorites video effects in Adobe Premiere Pro. The first effect I want to show you guys is the comic book look. As you can see here, I have my Spiderman footage. You know to set the mood for the comic book. Under Effects, I'm going to go ahead and look for Checkerboard. This is the first effect I'm going to apply. Now as you can see right here, we have these checkerboards. Go ahead under Effect Controls and then look for the effects that we just added. [inaudible] You have to be careful when you scroll in under the Effects Controls. Sometimes you may change stuff accidentally. Right here under the Checkerboard, I'm going to come over here to size and you can see that we can adjust the size of the checkerboards. I'm going to put the value around 10 so you can choose between 8,9, and 10. Something like this. Looks nice. Then for Blending Mode, you can choose between Overlay and Soft Light. Blending Mode for Checkerboard is going to be Overlay for me. As you can see right here, when we apply the Checkerboard effect, it does make the video look a bit brighter than it was before. What I can do is come over here to Color, click here, and reduce the pure whites from the effects. Maybe something here, something gray. I'm just saving for good measures. Now the other effects I'm looking for is Posterize. I'm looking for Posterize. Here we go. Apply this one under Stylize. Of course you can go ahead on Google and then look for comic book looks just to get some ideas and inspirations. Now I'm looking for Posterize right here and I'm going to go ahead and reduce it to six. Now if you want to view full-screen, you can just double-click here. You have the full screen. If you want it back, just double-click here again. It's 6. Six look better as well. Posterize is almost the same thing as Photoshop. What it does is that it's going to go ahead and reduce some colors from the video as you can see, while brightening and saturating other colors so you end up with something like this. If you want something fancy, you can leave it like this but for me, I think six looks good. This is a creative process. It's going to be different from a person to another. Now let's see how the video will look. Okay, guys and that was the first video effect. Next is Emboss. The idea here is to create black and whites clip with RGB colors. I have my Emboss effect right here. I'll put it on a timeline like this. We can see we have this thing. I know where it is. I'm just going to scroll down here and then just adjust a little bit the Direction of the Emboss, the Relief, and Contrast. There we go. Once you have something like this which means you can see stuff inside this gray thing, you know you're doing good. I'm going to go ahead now and duplicate this. Select the first clip. I'm just going to remove the effects and just keep it on this one. Next thing is I'm going to come over here to Blend Mode and then just change from Normal to Color. I click "Play." You can see that we have black and whites with some nice RGBs going on. What you can do to make it look better is add keyframes. Right here, I'm just going to add one keyframe for Direction and one keyframe for Relief. Then I'm just going to move the keyframes a little bit here because I don't want to just start right away. Then move here. Increase, increase. Move. Now if we play. You can see what I'm talking about. Next one is Prism. This one, you can do it either when you shooting with your camera or you can do it in post-production. First thing first, I'm going to go ahead and look for Replicate. This one. I'm going to put it here. You can see that it's going to go ahead and replicate the video four times. You can increase the counts from here if you want. For now, we're just going to leave it two. Then I'm going to come over here where you see these masks and then you can either draw your own shape or you can select one from here. I'm going to go ahead and select the rectangle. Click once. There we go. Then what I'm going to do is increase the expansion of the mask. We do 900 and see. Like this, maybe less. I want the mask touching the edges. Then I will go ahead and increase the mask feather to 150. If I click "Play" and see what we have here. Now I'm going to come over here and then just inverts. Here we have it. Next is Invert. I have my clips right here. If I go to Effects and then type in "Invert." I can drag it to the clip. You can see what it does. It just inverts the colors. You may think boo, it is not good. But if you come over here to Channel where it says RGB, and then you switch to either or both chrominance right here. You can see that it creates such a nice look. This one is all blue cold look. You can apply this one in nature if you're working on a nature clip. This one is a warm look. If I try them on this close-up shots for the face, I'm just going to copy this real quick, select Inverse control command C, select declared control command V. If I change it to in-phase chrominance, we can see how cool it looks. You may want to apply these effects if you're working on social media videos, music videos, whatever that may be you're working on. Next effect is similar to stop motion, but it's posterize time instead. We're going to have the same effects as stop motion, but it's a bit different. Let's see how we can do this, I have my video right here. The first thing I'm going to do is to dupe the video, so hold Alt Option, then duplicate video like this. Now with the duplicated one, I'm just going to change that color, there we go. Go ahead and look for posterize time. Once it's added, you can see right here that at 24 frames a second, our timeline is 25 frames a second. What am going to do is bring this thin almost to half, like this. I know 10 is not half of 24, I'm just saying. This is half. Next. You see right here blend mode. Now the tricky part is that you need to understand which blend mode you're going to use depending on the footage you're working with. Let's try screen back to lights. Then try overlay. Looks good. Soft lights looks even better. If I click "play." Here as you can see what's going on here. I think I'm going to decrease this more because I need more blurriness. See with seven. I think with seven, it's better. Next thing I'm going to do here is go to opacity, this one right here. I want to smoothen, the blurriness right here. I'm just going to decrease the opacity a little bit just to make it look, to make it feel smooth. Because maybe here, that looks good. One more thing I want to do is that I want it to look like stop motion, but also wants some RGB color going on with the blurriness. Under Effects, I'm going to go ahead and look for Channel blur. This one, double-click, scroll down. I'm just going to go ahead and increase the red blurriness. Something like this. Then right here, where it says, Repeat Edge Pixels. I'm going to go ahead and check this to smoothen the blurriness, blurred dimensions. You can leave it horizontal and vertical or you can change it to horizontal. If I click "Play", you can see what we have here. The last one is flashbacks. I have my video right here. I'm going to go to effects again and we're going to look for strobe lights this one right here. I can drag. There we go. Now, I'm going to scroll down. Let's hear now just to show you if I click "Play", and see what I'm doing, I guess you're probably thinking, why this? But just bear with me a second right here. You can see here where it says strobe, I'm going to go ahead and click and change it from operates on color only to makes layer transparence. Then I'm going to put the video on top and then bring my other video and put it beneath it. Cuts here. Clear. Select the video and then I'm just going to scale it down to fit the resolution, of the timeline. There we go. Now if I click on "Play", you can see what I'm trying to do here. The guy's probably thinking of her, trying to create a story here for the flashbacks. He's probably seen her and then he starts thinking of her. Hopefully you get the idea. I'm sure you can find better use for these effects than me. Just go. Here we go. Now we can make it's better. If I click here, you can adjust the duration of this strobe, the duration any period. Let's increase this to do duration to obtain here. Then the strobe period like this. Now if I click Play. Now before we go, I want to show you how you can save your effects as presets. For example, if I want to save this, I'm going to come over here to strobe lights effects. Right-click. Save as presets. You can give it a name. I'm just going to leave it like this and then 01. Okay? Now if you come over here you can see that you can find your saved effects under presets. That was pretty much my favorite video effects in Adobe Premier Pro. I want you guys to go ahead try those switch values, experiments with something else and see if you can come up with your own effects, okay? Thanks for watching guys and see you in the next one. 13. Creative Masking Techniques in Premiere Pro: In this video, I want to explain to you guys how we can use different masking techniques in Adobe Premier Pro. So the first one is going to be removing objects from a static shot, which means the camera is not moving, the camera is staying in one place. Let's see how we can do it. Now, I'm just going to play this thing real quick so you can take a look. Never start at this end before playing the entire clip. You never know what's coming. Now, let's say we want to remove this tennis ball from here. I'm going to go ahead and duplicate the video real quick and then change the color of it. I'm going to adjust this. Here we go. Guys, keep this in mind. When we try to remove an object, what we're basically doing is that we're cutting from a surface that has the same color and texture and then we hide the object using that surface that we just cut. You just need to make sure that the surface is bigger than the object that you need to cover. So right here are the effect controls. You can see opacity. I'm going to go ahead and select the Free draw bezier or the pen tool and then I'm going to cut in a rectangular shape from the surface right here because it's similar to the surface we're trying to cover. Then I'm going to adjust the position, my mask just like this. It looks good. Maybe we can add some feather 14. Now let's zoom out. You can see that it looks really clean. Even if you play the entire video, you won't have any problems. Now, the reason why I didn't try to remove the tennis racket because it's on top of the surface and it has shadows and I don't have enough space to cut from. So you can try and do it, but you're going to end up breaking something or your computer, so better not. Now, let's go ahead and try something with a moving camera. So you can see right here if I play, the camera is moving. Let's say I want to remove this area. Now, you see as I move, the rocks get bigger. So again, same thing. I'm just going to unlink those real quick, delete the audio, duplicate the clip, change the color, zoom in. There we go. Select the pen tool and now I'm going to go ahead and select a big area, big part from here, and then place it on top of the rock. Then I'm just going to rotate it a little bit. There we go. Now I'm just going to go ahead and add some feather. Here we go. Now, if I click "Play" looks good, but you can see that it starts showing right here. What we can do is that right before it starts showing, I'm going to go ahead and add a keyframe to the position and then move a little bit. Then just adjust the position like this. Remove, adjust the position, and then move right here, and then maybe we can just adjust the position further like this. If I click "Play". Right here before it starts messing up, I'm going to go ahead and then just cut and here you have it. That was two techniques of removing objects from a moving camera and from a static shot. Next, we're going to be using masking on our text to add more 3D look to the text, to give it some depth. I'm going to go ahead and select my type tool. Click here. I have my stuff in here already set, so I'm using Nexa Bold. I have the font size ready, 200. I'm going to go ahead and type in something like adventure. Just type, position it, and scale it up a little bit. Then maybe I'll go ahead and then just decrease the opacity of the type a little bit as well. Now, I'm going to go ahead and select the free pen mask tool and then just draw a mask on the side of the text like this, so we can hide the other side of the text and make it look like it's behind the tree. Next, I'm going to go ahead and add a keyframe to the mask path. So basically what are we going to be doing is that we're going to be moving couple of frames like one or two, and then adjusting the mask to reveal the text. Make sure you select mask one and then adjust the mask to reveal the text. So move one or two keyframes using your keyboard arrows move forward of course, adjust to reveal the text, and so on. Move one, two frame and adjust the mask. Move, adjust, move, adjust until you reveal the entire text. So I'm just going to speed the process. Now we're done. If I go ahead and click on Play, you can see what I'm talking about. Next, I'm going to be showing you how to use masks to apply effects to a specific area of your video. So let's say we want to target that beautiful fire over there. We want it to be brighter. Let's see how we can do it. Now if I come over here to Effects and then type in lumetri, you can of course look for any effect that you want. It could be blurring, lumetri, anything guys. So lumetri, color. I'm going to go ahead and apply the effect to the video. I scroll down, open up the basic correction. If I increase the temperature, for example, you can see that it's affecting the entire video, but I don't want to, I just want to target this fire. What I'm going to do is first refresh the temperature. Now, select the mask, or the pen tool right here. Let me just zoom in to the fire. Now, I'm just going to go ahead and draw a mask like this. You can adjust it afterwards, no problem. Now, if I scroll down to temperature and increase it, you can see that it's only affecting the fire. I'm going to leave it at 20. You can adjust the mask feather a little bit. Exposure, 0.2. Contrast, I'm going to increases this a little bit. Same thing for the highlights. The shadows just a little bit. The whites, reset to 20 something and then the blacks, it's going to be minus one. Now, if I click here to deselect, you can see what we have. It looks very good. So here's the without and here's the with. Now, if I click "Play", let me just select the mask so you can see what's going on. You can see what's going on. The mask does move because the camera is moving as well. So what we can do here is just track the mask path. So click on Play or track selected mask forward. It actually does a pretty good job when you're working with an easy footage like this. So you can see it did a good job. Thank you so much and here you have it. You can see the keyframes right here, tracking keyframes. Now, let's go ahead. I want to show you something else right here. I'm just going to open another sequence. If I go full screen, you can see that I already applied the mask to the woman. It has more colors and contrast than the background. So here's without the mask, and here's with the mask. You can see the difference. It's huge. Now, if I want to select this, it's going to be very difficult. You can see what happens here. Even if you track it, it's not going to work. What you need to do is that you need to track the mask path manually. So base the play-head at the beginning of the video, add keyframe, select the mask so you can see what's going on. Then you can move like this and then you need to adjust it. Once you adjust it, another keyframe will be added automatically. Then move a little bit again here and then adjust it. So you get the idea. It's not going to be easy. It's going to take lots of work. You adjust and then you move the play-head and then you adjust them and so on. So you can see right here that the keyframes are added whenever we adjust the mask. So it's going to be, as I said, a very tedious process. I'm not going to do the entire video because I don't have to. I'm just showing you guys. So these were some of my favorite masking techniques in Adobe Premier Pro. I want you to go ahead, learn those and try to implement them in your video editing journey and remember, masking and calibrating are two of the most difficult aspects in video editing. So it takes time, patience to master these two aspects of video editing. Thanks for watching. See you on the next one. 14. Frame Rate Explained: Before we do the speed RAM tutorial, I want to explain frame rates and how to use them in this lecture. I'm going to be talking or explaining different frame rates, and when to use them properly. The first one is 23 dots, 976 frames a second or also known as 24 frames a second. This is the standard cinematic frame rates. You shoot or edits in this frame rate if you want your shot to look cinematic, and also if you need to synchronize your audio, for example, you shot the video with the camera, and you recorded the audio or the different microphone, you need to sync both of them. Then you need to shoot in 24 or 23 points on 23.976 frames a second, okay guys? The next time frame is 29.97 frames a second, or also known as 30 frames a second. Now, you shoot in this time frame if you don't need to synchronize your audio, for example, the audio is good as it was shot with the camera, and also if you need to apply a slight slow motion, like decreasing in the speed of the video from 100 to 80%. The next one and the last one is 59.94, or also known as 60 frames a second. This one, of course, you use it if you really want to apply that amazing looking slow-mo, and of course, you don't have any audio or conversation that you need to synchronize. Now that you guys know the difference between each frame rates, don't shoot everything in 60. I know that people love to shoot in 60 frames a second, but try to choose the right frame for the right job or for the right video that you're shooting. As you can see right here, we are editing in 23.976 frames per second because we want that cinematic look. Now the first clip, this one, it's the same frame rates as the sequence, so it's going to place smooth. It lagging a bit because of the recorded and stuff. But it's going to play smooth because is the same frame rates as a sequence or as a timeline. The next clip of this guy throwing the football, if I click on "Play", you can hardly notice any lagging and the playback. But what's actually happening is that, Premiere Pro is skipping six frames per second to compensate for the frame rates change. How do I know it's skipping six frames per second? If we take the frame rate of the video minus the frame rates of the timeline, so 30 minus 24, we get six frames. This is the time-frame difference that's Premiere Pro skipping. The first method to fix this is right-clicking speed duration, and then I'm going to go ahead and decrease the speed to 80 percent. How do I know it's 80 percent? Because we divide the time frame of the timeline or the frame rates of the timeline on the frame rate of the video. 24 divided on 30 we get 0.8. We add a zero, then you do the math., it's 80 percent. This is how I know I need to decrease it to 80 percent. If I click on "Play", it's going to look more cinematic, more smooth, it's going to look better. Same thing with this next clip at 60 frames a second, as you can see right here, so if we click "Play", you can hardly notice any difference, but it's skipping 36 frames a second. How do we know this? 60 minus 24, 36, so Adobe is skipping 36 frames a second. Why? To compensate, of course. Again, what we need to do right here, is right-click Speed Duration and then decrease it to 40. How did we get this number? Now you should know, 24 of the timeline divided by 60 of the video clip, you get 0.4 add 0, so we decrease it or we slow it down to 40 percent. Now if I click on "Play", it's going to play so smooth, the playback is going to look so good, you're going to get that cinematic look. I know offset cinematic look a lot because cinematic look can meet a lot of things. Color gradient can be cinematic look, frame rates can be cinematic look. It just that thing that makes it look cinematic. Guys, this was the first method of fixing the difference and the frame rates between the timeline and videos. Let me show you the second way, and more simpler way that you're going to hate me for showing you the first way of fixing this. What you're going to do first, is delete everything from here, or you can just keep the first video in here because it has the same frame rates. Select the clips with the different frame rates. All of them. Hold Control or Command and select them. Right-click, modify, interpret footage. Assume this frame rates, and then change it to the frame rate of your sequence. 23.976, "Enter". Now we can see that all of them now changed to the frame rates of the timeline. If I add them here, it went ahead and did the job for us. Guys, before we finish this lecture, there is one rule that you should never break is that, you cannot add clips with lower frame rates than the timeline. If the timeline is 60 frames a second, you cannot go ahead and add the clip, that is 24 frames a second, but of course, we can do the opposite. Why? Because Premiere Pro is going to go ahead and create fake frame rate to compensate for the frame rates, that it cannot find the clip. I'm not saying it's going to look bad, but it's not going to look natural, as natural frame rates. Same thing can be set for resolution. You can add 4K resolution clip to a 1080 timeline, but you cannot do the opposite. You cannot add a 1080p clip to a 4K timeline, and expect good results. It just not going to be as natural as if you shot it in high rates. Guys, so very important to keep this in mind and see you in the next one. 15. Speed Ramp Time Remapping: In this lecture, I'm going to be showing you guys how to do speed ramp. Basically what I mean when I say speed ramp is that you either ramp your clip from fast to slow, or from slow to fast, but you don't ramp the entire clip, you just ramp the most exciting parts. Okay, so let me show you how you can do it. Now first thing first, we're just going to go ahead and extend the video on a timeline like this, let me just zoom in a little bit to the timeline. Guys, remember you can either hold Alter option and then scroll down or up or forward. I think it's down or up, to adjust the size of the video, or you can move to the clip like this, and then hold Control, and then you can do the same thing. Control or Command and then scroll down or up. Now just scroll up until we can see this line. Now this line controls the opacity. Make sure you see effects right here, like this one. Right-click, unlink distance first, then right-click and then change it from opacity to time remapping speed. Now what I'm going to do is that move the play ahead until I find the exciting parts, so that's before I smash this pen, like this, hold Control or Command, and then I'm going to add a marker, and then move right here, and then add another marker here. Now, since we have audio, we can do the same thing to the audio. Place the play head on top of the marker, and then just cut the audio right here and do the same thing for this one. Here we go. Now back to the selection tool, just click V on the keyboard, or sometimes it's R, depending on what you have. Now, remember what we said. We're working with a timeline that is 24 frames a second. The video clip is 60 frames a second, or 60 frames [inaudible] second, and the slowdown is going to be to 40 percent. Why? Because we divide the timeline, 24, we divide it by 60 frames a second. It give us point four, add a zero. There you have it. Now, right here, select the line and then just bring it down 40 percent, like this. Then we can just move this audio here, select the audio, right-click, speed duration, same thing, 40. There we go. Now if I click Play. Okay guys, now, can we make it better? Yes. If I scroll or zoom in to the timeline, you can see these markers. You can see when I hover over them, there is the left and the right black arrows down the main white arrow. I'm going to select one and then just move this, separate them couple of frames, and then do the same thing here, just to add that ramp we're looking for. You don't need to adjust the handles for this, because if you select one of these, you're going to have a handle like a curve that you can adjust with handles. No need to adjust this one. Now you can see that we have added more duration to the video. Let's again fix the audio here, and this one we can just compensate by extending this further, okay, it won't be noticeable. Now if we play. Okay, guys, now one more thing you can do to be more creative, is that you can right-click on this speed duration, and then just try and experiment with reverse speed and see how it looks. Then I'm going to do the same thing for the audio. Okay, now let's click Play and see what we have. It looks amazing. It looks very good. Now let's go ahead now and try the same thing with this one, but this thing is going to go from slow to speed. This footage was shot in 120 frames a second, but right here you can see 23 frames a second, that's because it was slowing down to 23. But the original frame rate of this footage is 120 frames a second. Now, same thing, I'm going to go ahead and right-click here, switch to speed, and then move the play head right here just before the cars. Star like this, and then Control Command, and add a marker for the time speed. They move like this, and then I can add another one here. Down the images. Think here, yes it's good. Now since this time we go in from slow to fast and we're not going from fast to slow, we're not going to divide the timeline on the video. We're going to divide the video on a timeline, which means 120 frames divided by 24 you get five. Move the decimal two places to the right and you get 500. Did some Maths in my school. Now, I'm going to go ahead and move the middle line up until I hit 500. Now let me zoom in a little bit. I'm just going to move this here, and this thing here. We can adjust those handles a little bit like this, to have that sweet curve in here. Same thing here. Like this. Now I'm just going to go ahead, and then Lumetri color just to add some colors to this flux footage. All right, you know what? I'm just going to type in Red, there we go, and then just add a lux that will go with the race. Let's see this one. Here you have it guys. 16. My Best Export Settings: In this lecture, I'm going to be sharing with you guys my favorite export settings in Adobe Premiere Pro either to upload the video to the Internet or to send it to a client. Now, before we start with the export settings, I just want to show you the timeline. We work with 4K timeline, guys. Keep this in mind. Now if you don't want to export the entire timeline, you can just select the video that you want to export, so click "I", then "O" to select the video. There we go. Now, with Sequence 01 selected, I'm going to go ahead and click on "Control" or "Command" plus "M". As you can see right here, we have the export settings. Now the first thing that you need to pay attention to is the encoding formats. I always make sure I have H.264. Presets, I will go ahead and Match Source, High bitrate. I'll select this one. Now, since the video was shot in 6K and a timeline as in 4K, and I want to export in 4K, so I'm going to go ahead and choose Match Source, High bitrate. It's going to go ahead and match the settings of our timeline, which is 4K, 24 frames a second. When it comes to bitrates, I will explain the difference between different bitrates in a second, just a moment. Once you chose these two, I'm going to go ahead and just hide the export settings for now. Then make sure you have video. You see right here Basic Video settings, we're not going to touch anything. We're going to leave it like this because it's matching the timeline. Make sure you check render at maximum depth. This will ensure you export in the maximum quality possible. Scroll down, down, down, down. This one right here is very important as well. We have bitrate settings, and if I click on bitrate encoding, we have constants and we have Variable one pass and Variable 2 passes. I personally always choose Variable 2 passes. Then I'm going to go ahead and adjust the target bitrates to minimum 42 and maximum 60, something like this, 62. The bitrates encoding will depend on the resolution and the frame rates of your timeline. The higher the resolution or the frame rates, the higher is the bitrate to ensure maximum render quality. Guys, I want you to pay clear attention here because I'm going to give you customized bitrate dependent on the resolution. For 4K, you can use a minimum 53 and a maximum 68. For 2K, you can use a minimum 20 and a maximum 35. 1480p you can use minimum 12 or 15 and maximum 20 or 22. Then for 720 you can use like minimum 8 and maximum 10 or 12. Now that we're done with the video, we're going to move to the audio because these are the two things you need to worry about. Now for the audio, make sure right here you have AAC, sample rate; 48,000, maximum, audio quality; high, bitrate also leave it at 320, and that's pretty much it for the audio. One last thing you need to do is that you can go ahead and check this, use maximum render quality. Then when you're done with everything, you can click on "Export". Then it's going to export. It's going to do two passes, so you need to be a little bit patient. You can go ahead and grab a cup of coffee, check your messages, do whatever you want. I know it's going to take some time but is going to be worth it at the end, especially if you want to upload it online or sent it to a client. Guys, Now I want to show you how you can export in 1080p. First thing first, if you want to get rid of the ins and outs, you can just right-click and then clear and announce. Now with a sequence selected "Control"/ "Command" "M". I forgot to change the output name, so you can change it to whatever you want. For example, I'm going to do car racing 1080. There we go. Now to change to 1080p form 4K if you want to export in just 1080p, you only need to change two things. First thing first, right here on Basic Video Settings, we're going to uncheck this thing. We don't want it to measure the source and then we will change the width to 1920. It will change the height automatically because it's linked. The next thing we need to change is the bitrate settings. Again two passes, and then we're going to change this then to 15, okay, I'm just going to type in 15 because it's driving me crazy. Then here to 30. Next click "Export" and then wait for it to export or grab yourself a cup of coffee, whatever you want to do. I forgot to check, use maximum render quality, anyway, so this is how you do it. If you want to save these export settings, you just come over here to export settings and click on this then Save Presets. Then just give it a name like this. Now you can choose it from here, whatever you need it. Okay, guys.
