1. What You Will Learn: get everyone in this 70 minute tutorial, you're going to learn all of the fundamentals of Premier Pro Sisi 2020. This tutorial is perfect for the absolute beginner that has never used Premiere Pro before . You can also download the project follows for this tutorial, using the links in the description below and you can follow along with me. So by the end of this tutorial, you'll be able to create this 55 2nd short movie. Okay, get that again. 2. Creating Our First Project: Okay, so let's get straight into it. We're gonna open up Adobe Premiere Pro Sisi 2020 and we're gonna credit a very first project together. Now, if you're using a previous version of the software Ah, then it won't make much of a difference in terms of what you see, if you're using a previous one or two versions, So if you need to at any point, you can just pause the video and come back. I'm not going anywhere, and you can continue on. So when you open up, the software for the first time might look very intimidating. But we'll start with with credit, and you project here so you'll see new project open project to click on new project. You'll see this window here, so you need to do to start with creating a name. So we'll call it something like Wonderful Planet, something like that. So wonderful planet. And you can select the location that you want to store the project. So you click on, browse and put it where you need to put it. I'm just gonna chuck it on my desktop, just like that now down here might get a little confusing in terms of your options, but the only one we're gonna can care about changing is Theoren Durer. So if you click on the drop down, if you've got software only and a few other options for GPU acceleration, make sure use of like, cheap you acceleration. It just means that things that go around a little bit faster during your editing process. So if you've only got software only than that's fine, you don't have any other choice. So otherwise, so, like GPU acceleration. If you've got that option now, we're not gonna worry about this these other options because it's a beginner tutorial. So scratch disks and in just settings that just things that are not worth talking about if you're just starting Premiere Pro for the first time. So we'll come back to that in sort of little lighter videos. So click OK and Premier Pro is gonna open up a brain new project. So now if you're not saying what I'm saying, if I just go, if you follow me and click on window at the top here, goto work spaces. At the moment, Premiere Pro is set toe learning mode. Now I don't want to set it to learning mode. I want to set it to editing mode. So if you click on editing, if you do that with May, then you should see what I'm seeing right now. So pretty much empty. Not a lot is happening Pretty boring, To be honest with you, we just have four major windows, he or four major panels. And, uh, there's nothing here. So when you click on a panel, you'll see a little blue line appear on that panel and so on and so forth. So let's make this a little bit more exciting, so that's add some footage to our project. So down the bottom left hand corner here, it will say, Import media, to start just here. Now you can either drag your footage into this window on your computer, or you could just double click like that to be double click on that panel. Go to wear your footages. Now, in the description of this video, all of the travel footage that we're using in this project you'll be able to download. You'll be able to follow along with May so you'll see here. We've got travel footage, so if you double click on that you'll see I've got four folders now. I'll talk about this for a minute or so. I like to organize all of my footage into separate folders. It just makes things a whole lot easier when we're getting into the depths of l editing work flows. So I like to put on my background music into one folder allowed to put on my drone footage in another folder, GoPro footage and any sound effects I like to put in a separate folder. And if I'm doing daily vlogs are like Teoh credit like a separate new folder, and I like to date stamp that folder. So it just keeps things nice and organized. And so I suggest to do that just before you start a new project in Premiere Pro. So what we're gonna do, and this is really, really easy rather than just import these individual videophiles, we're going to import the entire thing all at once to save a whole lot of time. So we've got travel footage here. Inside, we got four folders. Watch this. If I click on travel footage, click on import folder, watch what happens. It's gonna import travel for Teach the folder and then inside that it's gonna preserve those individual folders so you'll see we got GoPro drone for double click on that. We will see thumbnails or previews off our video clips in there. If you click on this up arrow here, it will take you back to the top, just like a normal kind of a Windows Explorer sort of experience. And this is pretty much the area that you'll navigate your footage. So if you need to, I'll show you something really cool. You can click if you just drag your mouse, see where your cursor changes. There you can click and drag that up to make things a little bigger so you can manipulate the size of these panels simply just by clicking and dragging as such. And this is a little tool box in here, so we're gonna use a couple of these thrill features. A sui moved through the video tutorial. Click and pull that across and click and drag it up. You get the idea, so just play around with this and I'll show you something else real quick. Now, if you want, you can click on any one of these tabs up here right, and you'll see more options as we start working on their project. And we'll talk more about this as we move through it. But you can click on these tabs and you can click and drag them out. And you can move them somewhere else if you want. And if you say where it's blue here. If I release my mouse right, it'll move that tab down here. No, I don't want that to happen. So in disco window workspaces and I could just go reset to save layout and will take me back to where I started. So all right, let's get into some fun stuff. So let's go into travel footage and we'll go to drone and we'll see how. Drawing clips in here, right? Little preview clips. Now just another one quickly. You can either select a list of you if you want to see your like, all the frame rates and all that, that kind of stuff for each of the clips or icon view, which I prefer, which means you can just scrub. You'll see here you can just get a little preview off each of your clips just here in the media window so if you double click on any of these clips, it is going to show up here in the source monitor box again. I could just click and drag that to make it smaller. And in this source monitor box, I can just click in and move this around and have a look at what part off this footage I want to use in my timeline so 3. Creating A New Timeline (Sequence): once we've got our footage imported and weaken. Sort of see it up here in their source monitor box. The first thing I like to do is create a timeline. So all I gotta do or a sequence all I'm gonna do is right. Click. Now, this is the easiest way of doing it. There's different ways you can do it, but without complicating at the easiest way is to just go right Click on the clip and where it says new sequence from clip. If you click on that, a new sequence will be created over here. So will pop up over here. And it'll automatically populate the new sequence with the same clip that you used. Right Click on, right. So and also at the same time down here, we've got a new sequence that's being created here. And you can see like a little tiny icon there. If you run your mouse over it says Sequined. So that's a sequence file. The name of the sequence is up here. D j. I underscore. 0092 You can rename that. So if you just click down here, right click off it, click down here. Click again and just call it Wonderful planet. Well, whatever you wanna call it, that would change the name of the sequence and you'll see the name change up here is Well, now I'll show you something real quick if see that cross there? If you click on that, your sequence will disappear. I used to think that this deleted my sequence. When I first started, I freaked out. I spent hours and hours. I'm like, Oh, no, I've just deleted my sequence. Where is it? I've just closed it. If you go down here, double click. It will reopen the sequence. So no need to worry about anything. You haven't deleted your sequence. It's just closed the sequence. 4. Basics of the Timeline Panel: so I'll show you a couple of things here in the timeline windows. So we're going to spend a couple of minutes on this. So if you need to pause the video, just pause the video and play around with it, then come back. So here we've got our play head. Now, as I move my play head but they call scrubbing, I'm scrubbing my play head from left to right. I'm seeing how that looks here in my program monitor box. So this is pretty much in this top right hand box. This is what the final product is gonna look like. The final video will look like this up here. So my timeline, if I have a look at my timeline window is organized as such. We've got video tracks here. V one B two, B three, and we have audio tracks here. A one a two, a three. So you'll see here. We've got a our first clip, which is on V one video track, layer one. So here we've got little eyeballs. So if you want, you click on that and I'll just make this entire track invisible. Right? So you're working with multiple tracks, video track layers. You can turn a couple of tracks on and off so you can only see certain layers, right? So that's like an eyeball. You can just turn that on and off, and if you want, you can add more track. So right now we've got three video tracks and three audio tracks. If you want, you can right click click on add Track. It will stack another track on top, and you can do the same thing with audio. If you just right click down here, click on add track. It'll add another audio track. Down here is well right now, if you have a look up here you've got, you can do the same thing. You can scrub the footage in your in your program monitor box and over here, if you're running a laptop or computer, that's quite slow. Then you can select the playback resolution to be ah, lot less just to make things run a little bit quicker so you can set it to 1/4 or 1/2. It's up to you, but personally, when I'm working with four K footage, I'd like to just drop that down to 1/4 withdrawing footage now drone footage doesn't have. If you have a drone, it doesn't actually record any audio, so that's why there's no audio down here. 5. Assembling Footage to the Timeline: what we're gonna do firstly is we're going to start to assemble our project. We're going to start cutting out clips and putting them on to our timeline and laying them at on our timeline. So what I like to do is I use my toolbox over here and I use my razor. It'll over here. So if I click on my raise it all or C is the short cut key on the keyboard. My cursor changes into a razor, and I can just click any part off the clip that I want to chop out. And I can use my scrub tool and I can click again right and that I can click up here on my selection tool or V on the keyboard. Aiken. Slight that and just press the late and that I could just click and drag this across. And that's how I cut my clips just like that. So for go back to razor, I could just cut, cut, cut, cut. And if I find that I made too many cuts, I can just go undo, undo, undo. So controls ed. Well, command said, or I can go edit, undo and redo up here right. So let's just delete all of that for now. We're going to go over here, So we're gonna go to a drawing clips. I'm gonna double click on this, and I'm going to use my source monitor box to figure out what part of my clip I want to use in my final product. So I'm gonna scrub for this footage here and I am going to from this point, for example, I'm gonna press I on the keyboard to select what they call an in point. So that's where I want the beginning off my clip to start. And then I'm going to scrap it along and then on the hit O on the keyboard or out you can either. But, you know, so select mark in and mark out as well, right? So that's another option. And then what I can do is I can, where it says drag video. Only I can click and drag that over to my timeline. And it's only going to drag that part where it shaded only that peace will be taken and dropped under my time on over here right now. Watch this. If I decide that I want to I want to include a little bit more of my clip. I just run my mass over here and where it changes to a bracket. I can extend that out if I want. I can trim that back in. And if I go to selection over here, click on that, which has already selected. I can click and drag this clip around again. The bracket will change just like that. If I click, I can pull that out or I can trim it back if I want. I can click and drag and move this to a different video layout if I wish. Right, so I want this clip to start at the very, very beginning off the timeline. So it's flush up against the timeline there. Now I'll show you something as well if I want to make these tracks bigger so I can see the preview or the thumbnail off these clips. I just go over here in a double click like that on the track, and that track will automatically expand outwards so you'll see here that I can see exactly what's inside this clip here, right? If I double click again, it's going to collapse. That So it's up to you. You can double click there, and they're for your audio track, and you can see the audio wave form as well. Okay, So what I'm gonna do, we gonna start building out my timeline by going through each of my clips, And I'm going t this exact same thing I did before. I'm gonna just have a click around. Okay? This is great. I'm gonna I'm going to start here by selecting Mark in or I on the keyboard. I'm gonna pull this along a little bit more, and then I'm going to select O on the keyboard or just click mark out. And then I'm going to drag that over to my timeline as such, right? And there we have it. They noticed something as well. And I need to talk about this is pretty important. So we've actually selected in terms of our timeline. You'll notice here that this is more zoomed in, right? And this is zoomed out. Now, if we go to sequence settings, you'll see here that we have in 1920 by 10. 80 sequence. Now, if we have a look at our clip here from our drone right click on that and go to properties . We actually have a four K that's shot in four K. So without getting too complex, we're going to right click on this clip. And then we're going to click on Set to frame size and you'll see here that it's automatically conformed this clip into this timeline, which is 1920 by 10 80. So before it looked like that, so four K sort of comes out over here more zoomed in now, after it looks like that, so we'll get into more details of that in another video. In terms of dealing with different frame sizes and different sequence sizes and things like that. The next clip is this one here for my drone again, I'm just going to click in. I'm gonna scrub it a little bit and click out, and then I'm gonna drag the video over and drop it on to my timeline as such. Now I'm gonna continue doing this. Ah, I just want to show you I'm about to drop into my timeline some clips from my go pro, so I'll show you here now inside our footage folder for GoPro footage, and you'll see here the preview images off our footage. So the 1st 1 or double click on that and you'll see here that the GoPro's recorded audio as well as video. So if I click over here, it's his drag video only. I just click on that. You'll see the audio way form. That's part of the GoPro clip. If I click on video, only you'll see the video side of it so the same principle applies. But I'll show you something. So I'm going Teoh, play this through. So get a couple little kids that we met in Indonesia. So I'm just going to select any point here, okay? And then that's the piece there that I want to include in my project. So I'm going to move my play head over here, and I'm gonna show you this. So if you click on insert so there's two options to insert an override. So by inserting watch what happens? So we're gonna play head over here if I click on inside. What what happens? It has now inserted that small piece from over here directly onto a timeline, and at the same time it's pushed these three clips along to the right if I just hit, undo and show what this option does, which is over, right? Watch this. It is now inserted. That clip that these three have not moved. Right? So what that means is that this clip will override anything that's after the play head. So watch this. If I do the same thing again, watch this. It's now overridden everything in front, off the play head again. Again. So you get the idea, So just be careful. So this under that I like to use this option here, which is insert, which means everything along the time line gets pushed in to the right. So I'm gonna do that. I'm gonna insert this, right. So if I get my play head and play that back right, so you'll see here that the audio, that if I select that it also selects the video as well. It just means that these two are linked together and you'll see that the audio has been automatically dropped on audio. Leia One as such. So what I'm gonna do and it's gonna continue along on and click on my go pro footage, I'm gonna find bits that I like. So by using this space bar on my keyboard here. I can stop and play the footage using space bar. I can use the eye on my keyboard and then I can use Oh, and then if I want, I can just either press insert or I can hit the comic e, and that's gonna automatically drop that. Under my timeline, we're gonna move to the next clip. So I'm spearfishing here in Indonesia. So you fight the space bar by on the keyboard, and then oh, and then if I hit comma, it's going to drop that onto my timeline, so watch what we have. So now we have three clips. If I'd space bar. Great. So I'm gonna continue along, and I'm gonna do the same for these two here, and then I'm going to add the background music, so let's go. Okay, now that we have all of their clips on our timeline, it looks pretty rough the way that we have it all dropped on our time line like this. And, ah, just real quick. Actually, I just noticed here. If I just select all of these clips you actually notice before that's a little bit zoomed in, it's because of the four K footage inside a 1920 but 10 80 sequence of right click on this . And if you click on set to frame size, there we go. And if we move over here, the same thing with this clip as well, said to frame size. There we go. That's much better. And the same thing over here said the frame size. There's a quicker way of doing it, but we'll go into that in another video, so 6. Adding Background Music: Now let's add some background music to our footage. So we go over here and you'll see the copyright dot text. Now, if you plan on using this clip in your own work, then just make sure that you read the text file that I've included that will ensure that you're using the background music properly. So this is our background track. We're going to click, and we're gonna drag that onto a timeline, and we're gonna drag it down to aid to audio track Layer two and release. Now, we're gonna double click on this layer so we can see the way form off our background music , and I'm gonna zoom out. So if you need to zoom about on the timeline or you need to do is down here, you'll see this little bar. Now you can either click and move the bar to the right or left. That just means that you're going to be scrolling through the timeline left and right or these little notes here. If I just click and drag that in to make it smaller, then I'm zooming into my timeline. If I click and pull that out to make it larger, I'm zooming out of my timeline as such, right? So that's just a little trick that you can zoom in and zoom out off your timeline. I like to personally hold down the altar key, right? I like to hold in the old K and use the scroll wheel on my mouse just like that. There we go. 7. How to Sync Music to Video Clips: So now that I've got the background music in my timeline, I am going to show you how to sink the beat. Ah, well, the rhythm off the music track to each of the clips here. So this is actually very hard to teach because it really comes down to feeling the music. And then, based on how you feel in the mood off the track, you'll you'll have the video clips change accordingly. So usually if there's a very strong beat or a snare drum in the video in the audio clip, that is very easy. To make these changes off, sinking your audio to the video clips, we're gonna play this audio back and we're gonna work on it together. So that's the very beginning. Okay, so already there, now what I like to do. Personally, I like to listen to the background music a few times. Sometimes I go for a long walk, and I listen to the music that I plan on using in my videos, just to get a bit of a feel for the track and what kind of mood and how I'm going to use that track in my videos. So I listened for things like the buildups, the Bates, you know, the base effect that if there's a base, I like to listen to that. I like Teoh. Just listen to the track and get a bit of a feel for it and see how I can integrate that into my video. And I like to pretty much conform my video tracks to the background music that I'm using. So already we have quite a significant inflection will change in the music track. So already I want something to change. At that point, then this is me. Personally. Everyone's different. So what I like to do is alike. Toe added Marcus. So over here we've got words Azad markka where you can press em on the keyboard, right? Little drop a little market there. So that just is a visual reminder for me that there's something I want at that point to change rights. If I play that three. So if you listen carefully to just ignore what you're seeing, I can even turn that off using the, uh, the eyeball here. I just want you to listen to the music. We want to change their and there and the and then And there, there, there. So there's quite a significant change here, So I want something toe happen there as well. That's quite significant. So I'm gonna drop the market there as well. So what you can do, you can zoom in and you can If you look at the way form closely, you can see where there's some changes along and this track is not really attract. That has very distinct beats in it. It's quite a soft a lot of, you know, just a very soft cinematic kind of background tracks that doesn't have any strong beats in it that you can easily determine from looking at the way form. But I'm gonna play this back, and I'm gonna show you what I'm gonna do. So we could have market there and do that again. Marco Marca I'm just clicking for now, Marca boom whom boom. And that's a big change right there. So what I'm gonna do is I'm firstly right here and there. Some background tracks now the background tracks. I usually get my background tracks from other sounds striper epidemic sound, and I'll show you real quick if I go over here. I've got epidemic sound here only Goal this up. In the description of the video, I have memberships for both of these and sound stripe. I've been using a sound strike for about three years now, and they're absolutely fantastic. I'll show you real quick. And when you working with your own poach projects, if you click on playlists here, you can actually find music according to a certain mood or feeling that you want to recreate in your videos. So this hip hop there's, you know, soaring and inspiring. So if you want, like the clip that where the background music that I'm playing now is more of a soaring and inspiring track. So if you want upbeat, if you're creating a travel video, you might want to go with something a little bit more cheerful. Or perhaps maybe inspiring. Cinematic. If you're doing a really beautiful um, you know, you know, shot of India or you know what I mean. So it's up to you. Just have a look around if you go to epidemic sound. If you click on moods, you'll see here that they've organized their tracks according to you know, happy or epic or, you know, euphoric and so on and so forth. So whatever mood that you're trying to recreate, if you click on any one of these, it will give you a whole list of tracks and you'll get to see, you know, the beats per minute and have a play around with it, and then you go from there. But for now, I'm going to use this track. Okay, so you notice here that we've got at the very beginning of your background music, there's actually no sound. There's no music, right? It actually starts at this point here, and you can see that on the way form. So we're just gonna What we're gonna do is we're going to press if we press Q on the keyboard. What that does this little really cool short cut? If we need press Q on the keyboard, it's actually going to delete everything that's behind the play. Had watched this even the video track as well, right? So watch this now. Music is playing from the very beginning of that timeline. And if I press on the eyeball here, it will now make that video trek appear again. So I'm gonna play this so you'll be familiar with This is the opening video off the opening clip off our little video that we're creating. Okay, that's what you want. The change to take place. Now, what I like to do moving forward is I like toe lock my background music track. Now, over here, there's a little padlock team. If I click on that, it's gonna actually lock this layer so I can't actually click it. I can't select it. I can't even cut it if I wanted to Just wind let me. And the reason why is because I wanna work exclusively with this content over here. And I'm going to start editing and chopping this, content these clips against the beat or the rhythm and feel off the background music tracks . So I am going to work with these couple of layers. I'm just gonna leave this one alone, and I'm gonna work exclusively over here. So that zoom back in and I want to select all of my clips as such. I'm then going to drag them out this way just to get myself a little bit more room and I'm just gonna drop them there. I'm gonna zoom in. Now This here, I'm gonna click. And I'm gonna expand that out as such. Right? You'll see that when he goes so far, I'm gonna drag this out. There we go. 8. How to Import Still Images: All right, so now we're gonna insert our background image. So if you have a background image that you want to or any kind of image that you want to bring into your timeline, we're going to go and get that. So double click over here, we're gonna import it. So where is it Images. And it's called Wallpaper. In this case, you can download this is part of the project files and we're going to import that directly into the project. So we're gonna click and drag that over here, and we're gonna just drag it anywhere for now. We'll just drag it onto video two and release and plant back. Right. So that's the background wallpaper that you would have seen. And again, you can click and make it longer or shorter. It's completely up to you, right? So I'm gonna play that back, and at that point, we'll get my other market. I'm just gonna chop it there, and I'm gonna bring this back 9. How to Add Basic Text: All right. So the next thing we're gonna do is I'm going to drop in some text, so I'll show you how to add some text to this wallpaper here. Very. Is it a text going to do is click over here. It says type tool where he could press t on the keyboard. And over here, inside the program, on it to box, you can click anywhere, and this is what will happen. A little cursor, which you can't see will appear inside that red box down here. They'll be a new graphic layer that added to your timeline. And if we go over to and I'll show you this window down here, look for essential graphics. Click on Essential graphics and over here, essential graphics panel will load up if you click on edit. We now have all of the options that we can manipulate for our text layer. Right. So if I moved my play head, I've got my graphic text layer right here, right? And if I want to add some text, I just click inside this little red box and I start typing. So I'm just going to say Brad, spread presents enter for new line, Wonderful planet. And then what I'm gonna do is I'm going to click on Selection Tool or V on the keyboard. Oops! Selection tool or V on the keyboard. Just remember that I've put V is inside the text light. So select the selection tool of here V and I'm going to center that text. So if you're not sure what these options are, you could just run your mass over them and it says horizontal center. Ah, line top, Align vertically aligned bottom. And you can manipulate Aled different types of settings here. Right. You can display around with this in your own time. You've got the different font options down here, cried. You've got the size. You can make it bigger or smaller, right? So we're gonna center this first. So if we click on center, it's gonna send to the text. And then if I just select these two options here, it's going to select its going to send to vertically and horizontally as such. So it's very hard to also know, like, is your text centered perfectly if you click it around and it's very hard to try an eyeball that the easiest way is to just click on these two options here, vertically center in horizontally center, and that'll automatically sent to the text in this in the center, off your frame. So what we're gonna do is we're gonna make some of the text smaller, so we're going to go back to a type tool, and we're going to select that text there. And over here we've got the size off the text that we can modify so we can make that smaller crying. And we can slick this text here and make it bigger just like that now, because we're creating a very kind of a cinematic of a video. I like to use text that is quite cinematic looking. And so if you go to Google and type in cinematic fonts, you get a whole list of fonts that you can use that you'll often find in videos that are very cinematic looking. So the current fund that we have is to Homer, and time is not a very cinematic looking front. In my opinion, uh, I'm gonna use Nixon. Somebody is next. A light. Now, this is a fun that you can download is part of the project files for this little project we're working on together. If I click on that, in my opinion, that looks much nicer, right? And so I'm also going to make the the, uh let is a little bit feather apart from each other. So if I select all of that text as such and then down here where it says if I run my mouse over here, it says tracking. So if I click over here now, remember, for click on zero, I will then be able to modify the setting inside there. Or alternatively, I can just click and drag the mouse, and it will change the value and you'll see the text will start to get a little bit wider. Right? So that looks about right. I like that. So I'm just gonna let that go at the same time, I want the distance between the top line in the second line to be a little bit closer together. So you'll see here If you just have a look at the little images here, you'll see leading. So again, I'm just gonna highlight these two here, and I'm gonna select that zero, and I'm gonna drag it to the left and you'll see that the two lines deciding to come together a little bit and release some relatively happy with that. Now you'll notice that this is not perfectly centered again. So I'm gonna click on the selection tool and then going to gov here vertically center and horizontally center. And that's going to make everything nice and sent it again. So I'm gonna line my text layer with my wallpaper and then I'm gonna make the text move. I'm going to give the text a little bit of an animation. So first and foremost, I'm gonna play this back, and that's what we have so far, right? So I'm just gonna manipulate this so that the war paper and the text exactly the same length as such. 10. How to Add Keyframes: and now to animate the text to make the text move a little bit, I'm going to click on the text layer. I'm going to go over here to affect controls over here. Click on that. And here I'm going to get all the effects that I can apply to my text layer. So if you click on these little arrows here, you'll see a number of different options. You can change the position. You do the same thing over, he could change the position scale, which is the size, make it bigger or smaller. You can make it. You can rotate the text, you know, have a play around with the settings in your own time. I'm just gonna undo all of that serve. You click on these little arrows here, it'll reset those parameters back to their default just like that. And that one there as well. So over here, we've got a little stop watcher. A little time. If you click on this, it's gonna drop down here what they call a key frame. Right? So this is a whole other discussion which will get into in another video. But when we click on the stopwatch, it drops a little key frame down below where the play head is. If I move this play head along, you'll see the play had moves down here as well, as well as up here. And then if I click on this arrow to drop down the scale, I can then increase the size off the text. Now. What's happening is that between these two key frames, the actual size of the text is going to increase. So for click and click on this key frame here and drag it out. Click on this K frame here and drag it to the beginning. What I'm doing is from the very beginning to the very end. The text is starting to get a little bit bigger, right? So if I play that back and I'll play Beckett full resolution, apply that back again. And what's this? Watch what happens over here. This scale is slowly starting to increase between these two key frames over here, right? So that's very, very basics off using key frames for very basic animations in your video. So in this case, we've just applied the animation to our text layer. Okay, The next thing we're gonna do is we're going to now conform our video clips to our background music. So again, we've actually, as I said before, we've put a padlock here. So we've locked down a background track so we can't move it by accident. And now we're gonna play back, and we're gonna chop these clips or move thumb so that at each of these markers, the video is going to change. The clip is going to change, and we're gonna drag these clips along. What's this? Right? And we're gonna use that raise a tool and a click. It's like the point here. Click on that. And then we're just gonna hit the selection tool and then select and delayed. We're going to zoom out a little bit. We're gonna drag these other clips down, right, so we can see them a little easier. And we're gonna do the same thing. So I'm gonna play this back, and we're gonna drink this over, so you'll notice you when I'm dragging the clips over It was a snapping into place. Right. So watch this house snaps in a place, you'll see that there's a little icon here which says snapped in timeline a little magnet. And so what that means is that when you're clicking on a clip and you want to snap it right , it just makes it easier to snap these little clips to the next clips on the timeline. So apply that back there we go. And again trade that over here, right? So again, I can just click on this clip and it overrides if I just drag it over this clip here, let it go and so that you play around with this in your own time. But at that point, remember at this point here, with a music change quite significantly, I wanted something quite big toe happen there. At that point, I want the kids voices to come in because I feel like the music can really bring out the mood and feeling off thes kids that were playing around in Indonesia's. So apply this back. So I want those kids voices to come in at that point. So I'm gonna drag those two clips back over here, right? And then I'm going to drag these clips now. I got some drawing clips here, so and then we've got this clip here on a drink that across and these two here. There we go. So pretty much got the jet, the basic layout off the the video that I want to create. So at some point that I want to fade this video out, I want the music to fade out because as your notice, the actual background music track is around, you know, three minutes long. So I'm going to take the padlock off, and there's two ways of doing it. You can actually just fade out the music, and I'll show you how to do that. So if you have a look at our audio track here, we've got this line here. If you click and drag that down, that's gonna manipulate the decibel level. So if you click or destroyed that back up again, if you take the pen tal over here or purse P on the keyboard, if you click at any points here, that will create a little key frame right there. If you click anywhere else on that audio track and then drag it down, it's going to fade that music out. So I'll play this back for you. So they just fade that this is a very basic fade out there. Now there's another way of doing it, which I also like to do every now and again is I'd like to just take the ending off the background music, and I like to just chop it and then drag it back up here and then put a little cross dissolve for a little power, constant gain or something like that, like a little transition. But I'm not gonna go into that right now. It just takes a little bit more time. But I'm just going to use a very simple fade out on the background track, and at the same time, I want my video clip to fade out as well. So if I right click on this video clip, go to show clip key frames and then click on capacity click, make sure it's clicked. A little line will appear there as well. If I take my pen tool, click over here, you see a little key frame is, Ah, put there in that little spot there. Click over here to create another key frame. Drop it down. What's this? It also fades out the video as well, so that's pretty much how you do it. And then All I do is I just take the the razor tool. And then I just cut at that point and just delete the rest of the audio track there. Right? So, as you can see have you hear in the program, on it to box video is gonna be around 57 seconds along, right? I can also click Drag this out so that the video and the audio both match. Take this key frame. I can click on it and drag it out. I can take this cave frame, click and move it across so that both the video and the audio fade out at exactly the same time, just like that. 11. Basic Colour Correction & Grading: Okay, So the next thing I'm going to show you is how to do basic color correction and color grading. Now, this is a whole other topic which does definitely deserve a separate video. But I'll show you very quickly how to do color correction and color grading. So Oh, I'm not gonna do every single clip all that you play around with each of these clips in your own time. But I'll show you a couple of drone clips here which definitely do need a little bit of work off color correction and color grading. So what I like to do first and foremost, is a lot to create an adjustment layer. And ah, and I like to apply the color correction and color grading inside the adjustment layer. I know that probably doesn't make any sense, and that's okay. I'll explain it to you as we go along. So down here, you'll see where it says New item. If you click on that, go to adjustment layer. Click on that. Just click. Oh, came and a new adjustment layer will be created, so I'll click and drag this over to our timeline, and I'm just gonna drop it up here. It doesn't matter where you drop it. Just drop it over the top of the clips that you plan on making the changes to. So we've got drone clip number one to 34 So I want to apply the color correction and color grading to these four clips. And also a cup of clips down here is well right, which I'm not going to do with you or let you do that in your own time. But for the purposes of demonstrating how to do it, I'm going to just use thes full clips here. I'm gonna take my adjustment layer. I'm gonna click and drag it out. So the adjustment layer of falls on top off these four clips now, essentially what an adjustment layer is is pretty much a layer that we add to our project so that any changes or anything, any effects that we apply inside the adjustment layer will impact everything below it. So if we click on this adjustment layer on and we first and foremost or show you real quick , we go to over here. It says color up here in the top menu. If you click on color, then our whole layout is going to change their elementary scopes is all part of the process . We're not going to go into that in this video. We're just gonna push that away a little bit and we're gonna move this over here. You'll see here this panel loom. ITRI column. So this is Thebe panel that we're gonna work in an under limit tree panel. We've got basic correction, right? Here's if you click, it expands that out. We have basic correction here and then underneath that we have creative. If you click on that, you'll see here Ah, whole other set of selections for Creative. So in terms of color correction, technically speaking, color correction is the first thing you should be doing before you call a great footage. Again, it's a discussion for another video. But if you click on color, a basic correction and we've got our adjustment layer selected here, pretty much any change that we make over here inside of our adjustment layer is going to influence everything below it. So these four clips going to receive all of those changes that we make to the adjustment layout. So if I click on the adjustment layer and I look scrubbed. This fort agent I got like, that looks a little bit too, you know, a little bit too flat. I might. Just in this ways, you can use thelancet tree scopes. I'm I just closed this temporarily because it makes things a little bit more complicated. We're just going to do it by visually looking at the footage. Okay, so over here we have all their basic corrections away. These little slider taps that we can manipulate if we want to adjust our basic color for each of these clips here. But we've got a adjustment way selected, so I'm not going to spend too much time. I'll let you just kind of click and move these around in your own time. You can adjust the exposure, the contrast, the highlights, the saturation down here. It's very, very self explanatory. Pretty much you're trying to correct the footage back to how is intended to be shot. And so you just go through and you just play around with these settings will save the discussion for each of these in another video. And if you make a mistake, you can just click on reset here and all of these will reset back to zero. But for now, once you've done those changes, you can click on the creative, and here is where you can add a certain look to your videos. So if you click on this drop down, you'll see all of these different options here. These are called Lutz or look up tables. So this is where you can add of certain kind of mood to your videos to make your videos like feel a certain way when people watch them. So, you know, if you click on and in my case, I've got a whole bunch of different lutz or look up tables installed if I want, you know, the movie drive has a certain kind of looking a click on that. You see that, um, the look up table will be applied to the adjustment lamb. If I move my scrubber header across, you see that that look up table has been applied across each of those four clips. So remember, got my adjustment layer is selected. If I don't like that, look will look up table that I just click. If I remember the movie Hannibal so you can actually download these. You can pay for them as well for certain types of looks, and you construe all them into Adobe Premiere Pro. So the movie Hannibal, right? So that's the kind of look that the movie Hannibal has right click on this. Now the lot that I've included as part of this project is called M 31 which is a very popular um, our engine teal lot. So M 31. If you click on M 31 rec seven on nine again, you can download this. It's in the description of this video. It's going to create a very orange and teal look right, and if you click every here where you've got a tick box, you can see what it looks like before and after the look has been applied. So this is like enabling and disabling it. If I move my scrubber across, turn it off, turn it back on, you can see the before and after you can see that this particular look is more of a teal look. So there's more teal there more orange, right, and I've dried that across. You get the idea right, so this is very, very basic what they call color grading. So in this particular tab here were doing what they call color grading. And if you want, you can change the intensity off the look. So if it looks a little bit too blown out of proportion in terms of the colors, you can bring the intensity off that look up table back down to say, 80 or 75. It's up to you, right? So then what you do and I'll let you do this in your own time is go through each of these clips and you'll first and foremost do color basic correction first, and then you'll apply on adjustment layer over the top of these particular clips, and you can then apply a look up table if you wish. Okay, so what I usually do once I've got pretty much everything laid out on my timeline, I've got on my clips. I've got my adjustment layers here have also put another adjustment layer of the top of this footage here and again. I can turn this layer off, which turns off the adjustment layers. I can see what it looks like without the adjustment layers just like that and turn it back on right so you can see the color grading that's been applied before and after 12. Adding Sound Effects: said. The very next thing I like to do is that I like to add in my special effects, almost sound effects. Rather, I want to put in my sound effects now. So if I play this back right while you're hearing is the background music and you're seeing the visual from the drone off the Philippines, I want to add some sound effects there. So if I go back to my folder to travel footage, SFX And if I go to this one here now you see, if I double click on that, I can see it here in my source monitor box. If I play this back by pressing space bar, do you hear the wife's crashing ride? So all I like to do is I like to just take a small pace off this sound effect, right? So all I do is I click here. I take the in point press play by the hitting the space bar and then O on the keyboard. So now I'm going to use this piece of my sound effect. Obviously, it's audio only, so I'm gonna click and drag that over to my timeline and drop it down. Now if I had play now, obviously, if I drag this out so that the sound effect matches thean tire length of this video clip. There we go. We have a basic sound effect. Now, if I just Salo this track, if a click s for solo, only the audio clips on this track will play back. So what's this? All right. And that's pretty much how you do it. Now this is a whole other topic of discussion as well, where you know it's important to match whatever is happening in the sound effect with whatever's happening visually. And remember that the sound effect should technically not really be something that you really able to listen to. It's got to be quite subtle enough that it adds enough depth to the video that people are watching. So in other words, you don't want this to be too loud. So if I click on this little what they call rubber band and push that all the way up and if I just take, that s off so it plays the whole thing back together Now, obviously, that's way too loud. And the sound effect is drowning out the background track, right? So in terms of when you're using sound effects in your videos, the sound effect must be quite subtle. Um, so I like to just pull that down if I play that back, so you'll notice that you'll hear the waves crashing. But it's not overtaking or dominating the background track. You might even want to bring that down a little further. So if you just click and drag that down, you see minus 7.5 and just have a play around with that in your own time. And what I like to do is I like to just go through and add different sound effects to my project. So over here, obviously, this is a very big shot. This is a wide shot taken on my drone in Utah. And so for go over here to this sound effect and click play. We've got some desert wind noise. So pretty much with this sound effect, I want people to feel like the kind of soaring through the air. And so I'm gonna just take out a piece off this sound effect, and I'm just going to drag it under my timeline as such, and it's gonna drop it straight there now you can increase the volume of this a little bit . It's very, very subtle. Now, obviously, with this clip here, I don't want the audio to be very prominent here, so I'm just gonna drank that all the way down as such. Also, just toe give you some advice here. I like to keep on my sound effects on a separate track. So with this particular sound effect, I'm gonna drag that down to audio layer three. And this one here is Well, so we'll get into more timeline organization later where you have all of your dialogue on one audio track, all of your background music on another audio track and all of your sound effects on another audio track as well. Now I'm gonna expand this out. And this one more sound effect that I want to add And what's great is that you can actually layer up different sound effects. So if I play this back again, we've got the waves crashing there on audio track. Layer three. Now, if I want, I can add some seagulls to the mix. Okay, so we got some seagulls there, something just gonna drag that over here and onto audio track, layer four, and I'm just gonna pull that out. So as you can see, we've got to sound effects at it. If you want, I can just write this Had to make a little bigger like this smaller and listen to this. All right? So obviously the seagulls are a little bit too loud. So I want to pull that down and play this back so he waves crashing any Siegel's. Okay, So that's the general principle of adding sound of basic sound effects to your projects. And, as you can add, as many sound effects and lay them up is possible. And the play head will play all of these back all of these audio tracks back simultaneously . And so I'll leave it up to you to to manipulate and play around with these in your own time . But that's pretty much how I do it in my projects. 13. How to Add Simple Transitions: The last thing I want to show you is simple transition. So if you go over to this panel over here and you click on these two arrows and go down to effects, we pretty much have the effects off audio and video here that we can select from. So if you click on, we have video transitions and video effects. If you click on video transitions and drop that down, you have all of the different options for dissolve and zoom and wipe and all of that. But to be honest, I do. I like to keep my transitions of really, really basic I like to use, Ah, my transitions of dip I'll show you so far. If you don't have to go down through the different folders here, you can also type in the search box up here. For example, dip or cross dissolve, so when you type in cross, you'll see over here. Cross dissolve will come up and you can just click on that, and you can just drag it to anywhere between your clips or at the beginning and end of your clip. So if I want, I can just drag it to the beginning of this clip. Zoom in, play that back and we have a nice little cross. Dissolve their or weaken, do dip toe white or dip to black. I'll let you play with these in your own time, but pretty much if I play these clips back there just what they call a straight cut from one clip to the next, which is perfectly fine. You shouldn't really be using transitions that are like wipe and a little bit too crazy. I like to use very clean transition. So if I take dip to black and drag that over and put that in between these two clips, watch what happens so the clip will dip to black into the next clippers. Such dipped a white watch This tiptoe white right, But typically dip to black is what I use, and cross dissolve is what I use as well. So I'm just going to delete those and I'll let you play with those in your own time. 14. How to Export to YouTube: Okay, so that is pretty much my project. That's pretty much all there is to this particular project. You can go through this and you can manipulate things and make changes and play around with it. But once you're ready to export the project or you need to do is go up to file goto export , go to media and I'll show you how to export to YouTube. So, pretty much, uh, this does get a little bit technical. But to be honest with you will keep it super simple. You don't really need to do many changes here first and foremost, where it says format. It's a h 0.264 and the next, so you'll leave it h 0.264 Don't touch that. And where it says preset. If you just click on that scroll all the way down, it'll say YouTube 10 80 p. So obviously, in this case, we just want to export it at 10 80 p to YouTube. If you click on that, all of these settings will automatically change to reflect this preset, so this pretty set will automatically change accordingly. All of these other options here, But we have a quick look. So we've got airport name. Wonderful planet dot mp four. That's gonna be the name off our project. If you click on that, it will take me to wear this practice project is going to save, so I click on Save and then if I just have a quick look here got video 1920 but 10 80 if I scroll down frame rate, field order progressive, You pretty much wanted to change anything. Here. Square pixels. One point home, right? Hardware encoding. Right. So you don't need to change any of that here. Just leave everything as is, and I'll show you real quick. You'll be able to see what the project looks like over here in the preview window and you'll see here that the project is 57 seconds long and source ranges sequence in and out. Right? So pretty much from the sequence in point, which is over here to the secrets out point is what's going to be included in the final product. So if ice Havas quick scrub through here. This is exactly what my final product is going to look like. Oh, came and then you'll see down here is his estimate of false eyes. This is the approximate size of the final product, and then I just click export, and it will be done in less than a minute. 15. Project Files and Final Movie: I have. That was super helpful when I was a very long tutorial. But if you want to download, if you haven't already downloaded the project files, you can do so in the description below. Also, if you have any questions, Brad at bad news and dot TV, I'll be more than happy to help you out. This is meant to be a very basic tutorial. So I hope this has helped you in your building. Your first project in Adobe Premiere Prime. Thanks for watching. And I'll see you in another video. Okay, get that again.
