Program Layout: - Hey, - what's up? - This is Philemon er with video school online bringing to you another lesson for Premier Pro - . - This is a W from mere prayer. - Right now I'm in, - and today I just want to give you a little bit of an overview of the program itself. - I'll walk you through each of these boxes because I know when you open this up, - it's kind of daunting. - When I first started video editing, - it was always scary opening up a new program and it took me a while. - Teoh even start with working with Adobe Premiere Pro, - So I'm glad you're here. - Uh, - I hope you enjoy this lesson as always. - Let me know any questions or comments in the comments section. - Uh, - so let's get into it. - And actually, - before I get into it, - make sure that wherever you're watching this, - you are watching it in HD Quality 10 80 1920 by 10 80 watch it in full screen because if - you're not, - if you're watching on YouTube or you to me, - you know it's just going to be a small screen and you won't be able to follow me far along - that well. - But if you're watching full screen in HD. - It should be as clear as if you were just watching your own screen. - So go ahead and do that. - Now, - if you aren't already in HD quality. - Cool. - Thanks, - guys. - I'm excited to have you here, - so let's just go through. - Ah, - This, - um, - this great program, - uh, - over here in the left top left, - you will see, - I have my project been. - So this is basically ah, - where you're you keep all your files. - Um, - are you gonna have multiple projects if you want? - Um, - but as you can see here, - I have my all my files organized into different folders such as video sequences, - titles, - audio and graphics. - Each one of those you know, - you can double click, - and it opens up another box. - Um, - another window. - Or you can just use the drop down menu. - You can label these different colors, - um, - if you want and, - ah, - do all sorts of different things from it, - so you can import items by just dragging and dropping. - So say you're whether you're in ah, - windows or a Mac. - You can just go through your documents, - find your video, - and then just basically click and drag and drop into that window, - and I will bring it in down here. - There's just different view. - I, - ah, - view view options for your folder so you can do icons where you know it opens up icons, - opens up your your files in a Nikon view so you can see, - like for videos. - This is maybe nice. - I personally like just the list view, - so it's nice and easy and aligned. - Ah, - you confined things. - If you have a ton of items in here, - it might get a little bit hectic and crazy so you can actually search through all your - folders with that. - Ah, - you can create new bins for you know, - whatever you want, - music or whatever you have with that folder option and down here with it looks like a - little post it. - Note. - It's called The New Item. - This is where you can create new sequences, - new titles, - you know, - black video color mats, - all sorts of things. - Ah, - so this is you'll be using this a lot as well. - Let's go over to the center section. - This is your source kind of viewer. - This is where when you are looking at your video or your audio, - for example, - you'll double click it over here, - and it will bring it up here into the viewer. - And here you can preview it and, - uh, - you can make selections of you know what part of the clip you want. - So in this video, - I was pouring a beer for my how to brew beer course beer making course. - And so I did. - A couple takes and, - you know, - I find the right take, - and that's where you you can make selections through here with all these options down here - , - um, - the marking in and out buttons right here. - This will mark the spot where you want your clip to start, - and then you go to the end of it and click this mark out. - Or you could just press the I and the oh buttons on your keyboard. - There's lots more over here that you can do. - I There's different ways to play and, - you know, - so you can use these buttons to play. - You can use the shuffle slider to, - you know, - fast forward or, - uh, - we're wind and same with this jog slider, - you can go back and forth that way. - There's other options right here to, - um, - such as even exporting a frame, - like taking a still of your footage like this. - And then if you just want this still image, - you can quickly do an export image right there. - You'll see this video, - uh, - an audio option right here. - If you want to get both the video and the audio to your timeline, - you would just click and drag and drop. - Or you could just do the video by clicking this and dragging or clicking this and dragging - . - So as you can see, - when I do the video, - it just brings down the video layer. - If I do both by clicking the video itself does both and just the audio we'll just bring - with the audio down This this window also has, - um, - tabs as the audio mixer. - So this is for the entire project. - It's kind of the master mixer, - so don't think that it's just for this clip or whatever clip that you have selected. - This is for is the master audio mixer. - So you have the master track, - and then you also have for each track you have, - uh, - levels and you know, - different options to make it left or right speaker increasing decrease the levels and - whatnot. - Metadata might be up on yours. - Um, - And if you don't see these specific, - uh, - windows or tabs, - you can go up to your window option click window up at the top. - Sorry, - it's off the screen right now, - but it's just up in your file Menu are on the top of your screen, - got a window, - and then you can click on and off. - Any of these bins are folders or windows, - whatever you want to call him the effects control. - OK, - so, - metadata. - This, - uh, - holds the metadata for whatever clip you are selecting. - Um, - so you know, - if there are there, - if there is metadata than you'll see it for effects control. - This is if you have a clip selected in your timeline, - it will bring up that clip, - affect controls, - and from here, - you can adjust the motion, - the position, - the size you can rotate. - You can change. - The opacity, - can even speed up or slow down the clip. - You can also control the audio. - If you add any effects, - they will show up here, - and from this menu or this tab, - you can control them over here on the right. - This is, - I guess your canvas, - I would call it. - This is I calls because of the program, - but I would call Ah, - canvas. - Um and this is where you see whatever's on your timeline, - So this is kind of like the final product view. - So when you play your timeline that gets into the beer, - the more chance for it to get, - you know, - certain bacteria. - So there you have it. - Like I was playing my course and it was playing here in the canvas. - And of course, - there's the for options for viewing it so you can do, - like, - 50% 10% or just make it fit to the size of this. - You can change the size of any of these windows by going to the edge or the corner and - clicking and dragging. - So go to the corner. - And if I want to make that campus bigger, - which sometimes I like to have it bigger. - So it's easier to see. - I can just do that and same here. - You can have lots of different options for, - um playing or doing screen caps and all that kind of stuff down here in the bottom left are - is some other are some other tabs? - Uh, - first and foremost, - you have your effects panel. - You have lots of different bins with, - ah effects that already come with the program. - You have video effects, - transitions, - audio effects and audio transition. - You can just search through them by going through each folder or if you have, - ah, - fact that you know you want, - you can just type it in. - So say I have I want cross dissolve. - I can just typing cross and cross dissolve comes up or for an audio fade. - I can do constant power and, - you know, - typing constant and constant power. - Constant gain comes up. - So that's the effects man. - And like I said, - when you click and drag those effects onto your clips in your timeline, - though, - also appear in your effects. - Control up here, - where you can change the settings and customize there's some of these other tabs, - like the media browser. - This is actually kind of like in Mac, - your finder or in Windows. - If you're looking through your computer, - your documents. - It's Adobe Premiere pros own sort of file system so you can actually look through your - files this way and click and drag and drop items into your project. - Appear info just shows the info of whatever clip is selected. - You know, - it's kind of, - I don't know, - it's kind of pointless. - I've never really used it. - So usually have that off history again. - Well, - um, - or not again. - But this will show you all the edits that you've made and all the different things you have - done. - So you can go back to a certain, - um, - edit that you did by double clicking, - and I will go back to that item. - Um, - so that's awesome to do, - in case you made a lot of changes. - But you you know, - you want to go back back in time and rather than having to re edit everything can just - cooked to your history and do that, - the big thing is the timeline. - This is where you lay out all of your footage. - Um, - you have different video tracks right here. - Right now. - The standard is three. - You have three audio tracks. - You can zoom in on these using the scroll, - bar the slider of down here so you can zoom in on the timeline. - As you can see here for my video. - I have, - You know, - my video down below. - I have my titles and my effects up here. - Um, - and you can see the time up here. - See, - it goes on 44 seconds. - 59 seconds. - Um, - you can make these tracks larger or smaller by hitting this triangle, - and this allows you to see, - like, - the wave forms for the audio. - Or you can see, - like, - parts of the video clip. - You can see the video clip and I image from that video clip eso. - It's easy to tell what that clip is, - so you'll be spending a lot of time doing working with the timeline. - Over here, - you have your audio, - um, - meters. - So as you play your clip, - you'll see this bouncing up and down. - We have prepped our bottles. - We've sanitized them. - We added our sugar just like so. - And that's great for, - um, - you know, - obviously monitoring your audio, - you definitely don't want it to be hitting up here and it will go red. - If it's peaking in, - it will be distorted down here. - You have all your tools or, - you know, - they might be up here is Well, - um, - these are all your tools for editing? - You know, - you have your sliders, - you're rolling. - Edit tool. - You have your razor tool that helps you cut. - You have your pen tool that will allow you to customize your own key frames zoom, - tool, - toe. - You know, - you just click these and you can zoom in our zoom out of the timeline. - Uh, - all these different things are great, - uh, - tools and you'll learn a lot about them in future lessons. - But for now, - that is a lot. - And I hope you're not too overwhelmed by everything that we've been talking about, - um, - in front in Adobe Premiere. - But, - ah, - I think you guys gotta get handle of it. - And, - uh, - for now, - I'm gonna leave it at that. - You guys were watching so much. - I really appreciate it. - Please leave comments below. - Hit the like button. - Leave me a review on DA. - Yeah, - I'll see you guys in the next lesson. - And I hope you guys have a really great day. - Talk to you later. - Bye. 4. Starting a Project: - Hey, - guys, - what's up? - It's filled here on. - And welcome to this quick lesson continuing our adobe premiere pro lessons Last time he - gave a little bit of an overview, - but they'll be premier. - So check out that tutorial if you haven't seen yet today. - I just want to talk to you about starting a project and what to keep in mind when choosing - you know, - , - settings and all that stuff. - So when you open up W Premiere Pro, - I'm using CS 5.5. - But really, - whatever CS you're using, - it's gonna be about the same. - The newer versions of Premiere Pro and the older ones might have different, - you know, - effects or the buttons might be a little bit different, - or things might be in different places, - but overall it's the same process. - So just go ahead and click new project, - and that's going to come up with this dialog box with some information that you need to - type in. - Most importantly, - on the bottom is the name of your project, - so you're just type in product name, - and then you would brow Dent's and choose where you want it to go. - So just go through your finder or your documents in Windows and just decide where you want - it to save the rest of the stuff. - Nowadays, - it doesn't make too much of a difference if you want your your display format to be in - frames or in time code or in feet, - like very. - If you're actually editing a movie shot on film one of these, - you would use one of these. - I use timecode, - cause this is easiest for me to tell. - Like it basically means the time the timeline is going t o be in seconds or minutes, - and it's easy to see that way. - Uh, - audio display format again. - I just do audio samples capture. - Uh, - this is for if you shot on tape and you're using digital video tapes or H h d Deve digital - video tapes. - Um and so, - uh, - that you typically you won't use nowadays with all of our digital cameras, - the scratch this This is where it saves some of, - like, - the previews and stuff like that and renders Don't pay attention to that right this second - , - that's that's more advanced. - But for right now, - you're just going to click, - OK, - you're gonna pop up with another dialog box. - And this is where you want to title your sequences. - So this is something that's really important. - Actually, - First, - I'm gonna go down to the bottom, - actually, - and Neymar sequence Before, - I didn't really pay attention to this, - but I found a really good method is to depending on what? - Whatever your product is called Project name. - I usually do this than I do an underscore or a dash and then the And then that means - whenever you start a new sequence, - it's gonna automatically have that name and you can easily add a 123 to change the version - . - Teoh, - name the new version of the sequence. - Or you could do something like Secret sequence one or two or three. - But this also helps with you are exporting at the end of pre in your video exports as this - name as well. - And so it will just export project name the whatever And so you, - when you export, - you'll have all these versions from one to have harmony you choose. - You make so name your project. - They're coming back up here. - This is Ah, - this is important. - This is available presets. - So there are sequence presets and This is where you have to choose what type of video - you're going to be editing. - So it's really hard for me that there's no right or wrong right here and I can't tell you. - Okay, - this is what you do, - because you really have to know what video type you're using. - Are you using a digital SLR such as I can? - And 70 year Canon five D? - If you are, - you can use this preset digital SLR, - and then you have to choose what frame rate, - the rate and quality use. - Did you shoot in 10 80 p. - H. - D. - Did you shoot and four EVP Did you shoot in 7 20 p? - And in each of those, - what was your frame rate? - 24 25 30 was something different, - and you'll notice that even though it's 24 the friend, - the frame rate is actually 23 976 and so saying for 30 it's 29 97 So don't can't confuse - when the preset only says 24 or 30 and doesn't have the standard 23 98 or 20 997 So we need - click to these. - The information pops appear more information about each preset. - And so, - really, - you're just going to have to find out what, - what type of video you shot and use one of these presets. - Or you can just go to settings and do it custom. - So if you shot on digital SLR, - you could choose DSLR frame size with etcetera display format. - Um, - all the stuff I would leave alone and yeah, - and then this last tab is this tracks. - And this is important, - too, - depending on how many video tracks or audio tracks you think you're going to need. - You can always add tracks later, - but it's nice to set it up right here. - Three is pretty standard, - Um, - for me and same with audio three Stereo is standard, - and you could even save these as a preset if you have a special combination of tracks or - settings. - So once you click high once you sat yours, - your video type and your secrets name. - Kick click OK, - that will open up your new project. - That's it for now. - That was starting a project in Adobe Premiere Pro. - This is Philip dinner with video school online dot com. - Check out the website video school online dot com for great tips, - tricks, - tutorials and more. - Sign up for our newsletter. - You'll get 50% off all my online courses. - Check it out. - Thanks for watching, - and I'll see you next time. 5.

Organization in Premiere Pro: - Hey, - guys, - it's Phil here with video school online dot com. - Thanks for checking out this tutorial. - Welcome to a lesson, - all about organization. - We're going through Adobe Premiere Pro, - and we're talking about video editing, - and I just want to get take an entire lesson to talk about the importance of organization - and show you kind of my tips and tricks. - So exactly how I organize. - So don't go ahead and skip this lesson because a very important one. - It's one that has saved me over I countless hours I can't even name. - I can't even count how many hours that saved me. - And I've also wasted hours upon hours sifting through footage, - trying to find clips that I don't know where they are. - And, - you know, - after I realized, - you know, - I you know it's one of those things where you just start editing and then you never really - change the way you do things. - And then one day I was just like, - Why am I doing this? - I need to organize my footage better. - And so from there, - then on I've had a system. - So the first thing you need to do is organize your footage and all your assets, - meaning your video, - your audio, - your photos, - whatever you're going to need for your video, - you have to organize them in your documents in your finder. - If you're using a Mac or in your documents if you're using a PC, - so start a new folder in your finder and title it your project title. - New Project. - This is how it always start new projects. - Within that folder, - I'm going to create a few folders video going to create an audio folder. - I'm going to create a pictures or photos folder. - I'm going to create an exports folder, - and, - uh, - you might come up with different, - different folders. - You might have a graphics, - or sometimes I just called in after Effects folder, - where you put all your graphics, - uh, - or whatever you need. - And then once you have all these folders, - put all the footage that you have into the right category. - It's under video. - You might even add more more folders, - so I might even add a the year old folder. - Um, - I add a can't interview folder, - and even within interview, - I might add a camera, - a folder or a camera be folder, - you know, - depending on. - If you have multiple cameras and go through all of these folders and make sure they're very - organized, - then you want to mirror this layout within your after within your adobe premiere Pro - Project itself. - So last lesson or last tutorial? - Uh, - in this series, - I imported some footage. - You want to do the same thing with organizing your footage, - so I'm going to create a new band by clicking that folder symbol down there, - and I'm just going to title it video at a new one. - Audio photos and another one you want. - Here is sequences because you're going to have lots of different sequences that you start, - which are different timelines, - so you'll have a sequence for your rough cut your selects just for even sinking your - footage together, - your audio in your video. - And so go ahead and drop. - You know you're the footage in the appropriate folder, - so I have some video. - Have some audio. - I have a sequence right here. - Sometimes I leave my sequence out of the sequence folder until I start a new sequence, - so I'll have my If I'm working on my rough cut sequence, - I'll leave it outside so it's easy to find. - It's just right out here in the project being over here. - And then once I move on to my fine cut all copy and paste that sequence just simply by - right clicking copy and pasting and I'll leave. - I'll leave the new new sequence that I'm working on the fine cut version out, - and then I'll move the rough cut version into the sequences and see out clean. - This looks. - You can even label your different, - uh, - folders with different colors. - Um, - if you want, - you can, - uh, - do different things to organize. - But the reason why I later I organized my footage here and in my finder the same way is - then it's really easy to find footage. - Sometimes your photos you gets lost. - Sometimes you have to reload your footage. - Or, - you know, - sometimes you don't know where you know a certain clippers. - But now, - if I know that this clip is in my audio folder, - I should be able to go straight to my new project folder going my audio folder, - and I will be right there. - So that is, - those are some keys that you need to to do when you're starting your at your Adobe Premiere - Pro Project organization is a huge deal for editors. - And if you want to be a really good editor and professional one, - you're going to have to learn how to organize the right way. - Thank you guys for watching, - and I hope you enjoyed this lesson and you are learning all the things you need to become a - great video editor. - Okay, - until next time. - If you have any questions, - let me know. - Email me at video school online at gmail dot com. - It's not. - Have a great day, - and I'll see you next time. 7. Timeline and Basic Editing Tools: - Hey, - guys, - this is Phil Abner with video school online dot com, - with another tutorial in Adobe Premiere Pro Today we're going to be talking about the - timeline is a very important part of video editing, - something that you are going to be spending the most time on out of all these different - windows. - So we talked about the timeline in the over years, - this area right here and this is where you're going to lay down all of your video and audio - tracks or any other footage that you you have and where you're actually going to be editing - . - So I'm going to bring down a video clip just ah, - to have and example So obviously, - like I just did to bring down video into this timeline, - you can just click and drag it onto the timeline, - or you can double click your your video in your project bend and then find it up here in, - um, - your viewer. - As you can see, - this is a clip from one of my other lessons, - and then you can click and drag and drop it down. - Here is well, - you can make selections by setting in and out points in this viewer toe only select a PSA - portion of this clip. - So say you only want a little bit of video. - This is more for if you know, - you you have a shot or an interview and you only need a certain part of it. - You can press I to set an in point. - Go to the end of the clip that you won't want all right at the end of the portion of this - court that you want and press. - Oh, - um, - and you can or you can click these buttons down here in and out. - Then you can click and drag and drop, - and that will bring only a portion. - As you can see here, - it only bring the portion you can drop Ah, - footage on two different layers down here. - So right now we have three video tracks in three audio tracks. - Or, - if you click this little video icon, - this video riel icon, - it will only drag the video down, - or the audio will only and drive the audio down. - So let's talk a little bit more about the timeline. - As you can see, - there's three tracks these little areas arrows next or triangles next to the video track - names will make the tracks bigger or smaller, - um, - for in the audio, - by collapsing them or opening them up, - you will be able to see the wave form, - which is something important that you will be playing with when you were editing audio to - zoom in on a part of this on into the timeline, - you can use the slider down here dragging to the right will increase, - zoom in and drive into the left will zoom out another way is to, - um, - use this a tool over here. - And we're gonna go through all these tools in a second. - But the zoom tool, - this magnifying glass down here will let you zoom in, - um, - or out. - If you have the zoom tool up and you press the option key for the old key, - it will turn into a negative. - Are a zoom out notifying glass or you can just press Z. - So if you're if you have a pointer uh, - just the regular selection tool, - uh, - which is the hot key? - A. - You can press is easy to bring up the zoom tool, - and again you can zoom out, - zoom in. - So as you can see we are, - we can see our our way forms down below. - Um, - you can add tracks by right clicking and adding tracks, - and it comes up with Xilai Box. - You can choose however many audio tracks or video tracks toe ad and select what type, - or you can just click and drag into a new track. - If you have video up here or video from your your project been, - you can just click and drag it into a new track, - and that will new track. - So let's go over some of these tools. - We have our selection tool, - which is, - uh, - which is the short, - the keyboard shortcut? - A. - That's just a click and move around footage. - You can click and move around footage. - This way. - This next one is the tract selection tool. - So that is T. - And this will select all clips on a certain track. - So say we have two clips on this video Track three. - If you bring up the the tracks like tool, - which is t you click. - See how it bring it. - Grabs all of the tracks, - all the video in this track or, - if you press shift, - it will. - It will, - um, - bring up all. - It will select all of the video or audio in the all of the tracks to the right of this era - , - Um, - and so that's a cool tool. - If you want to just select a portion of just a single track of video or I am, - there's some other tools. - But another main one is the razor blade tool. - Well, - beginning into the other ones in the future. - But the razor blade tool is for cutting your footage up, - so you just go to a certain spot and you can cut it in different areas. - If you press shift, - it turns into a double blade, - and it will cut all tracks at that point, - just like so. - So I'll zoom into this and I'll show you. - So if you want to cut all these tracks at this point, - you just press shift and click. - So I'm gonna leave it at that. - For now, - we've gone through a lot of stuff for this timeline. - Um, - as you can see here, - there's the numbers for the time. - You also zoom in by clicking this bar above the timeline and squeezing and stretching on. - And then, - of course, - you can go left to right by clicking this slider along the time line. - That's it for now. - We'll go over some more details as we go along and get into more editing functions. - But for now, - I'm gonna leave it at that. - If you have any questions or comments, - please let me know and, - uh, - have a great day. - Have a beautiful life until we meet again. - Taxi later. - Guys like 8. Creating a New Sequence: - Hey, - guys, - this is Philip Miller with video school online dot com today. - I want to talk really quickly about starting a new sequence in Adobe Premiere Pro. - There are a few different ways to start sequences. - I'm going to actually delete the sequence that I already started. - I've got some footage and some sample clips that you can download. - Um uh, - from the course website for taking the course. - Or you can just use your own footage if you're watching this on YouTube. - Um, - but let's talk about star new sequence. - Uh, - first of all, - a sequence is a It's basically a draft of your project and eso Each sequence consists of a - top timeline with all of your edits that you do on it. - So to start a new segments, - you can go upto file new sequence. - This will ask you what sort of sequence you want to start. - We learned when you start a project, - you go through this sort of dialogue box when you open up a new project in Adobe premiere. - But even when you start a new project, - it will open up as well. - So you condone Dio. - So I'm gonna call this project interview Do underscore V one. - So this will be my first sequence. - I'm going to keep that digital SLR 10 ap DSLR 10 a p 24 frames for a second. - Really 23 98 or 976 friends per second. - Click OK, - And that creates this new timeline. - So that is one way to create a new sequence. - Another way is to go to this. - It looks like a post it note right here in your project browser when you click that you - have different options. - But I'm going to go ahead and clicks sequence and again, - you have the same dialog box and you can create a new sequence that way. - And you can set your the the preset, - uh, - format this way. - And, - um, - you can. - That's another way that creates new sequence. - But let me show you the easiest way in the quickest way to start a new sequence with the - correct settings. - If you have your your footage, - you're going toe. - Want your sequence to be to match that footage US form that footage is format. - So instead of having to like, - figure out what the format is, - or even just take the time to click a button. - This doesn't in one simple step. - Just find the footage that you wanna start your sequence with. - Do interview, - drag and drop it on top of this. - Post it Note Icahn and that starts and completely new sequence with the right settings. - You can rename this, - uh, - this, - um this sequence if you want just by clicking it and name it. - Right name. - I'm going to delete that other one way start before and there you have it. - Now you have a nice, - perfect sequence. - Perfect settings was just with a click and a drag of your footage. - So that's how you start a new sequence in Adobe Premiere Pro. - Let me know if you have any questions or comments until next time. - Have a great day by 9. The New Item Button: - thanks for dinner with video school online dot com with another lesson in Adobe Premiere - Pro. - I want to go over this new item option because you're going to be using this a lot in your - project window. - So this little post it note icon when you click it, - you have all sorts of options for different new items you can use so you can add new - sequences. - We learned that before. - In another lesson about sequences, - you can add a new offline file. - So what does that mean If you have a If you're putting together a video and you know that - you want a certain clip at a certain spot in your video, - or if you're adding B roll, - you can actually add an offline file. - So you say. - OK, - you can say if it contains audio and video or just video. - Just all you can change the audio format, - and this actually creates an offline file that you can then add to your timeline. - And ah, - you can't. - Once you do shoot your your footage, - you can then re link it, - um, - which will go over in the future of exactly how you do that. - But it's really cool, - cause then you can kind of like pre playing your video and start editing. - Even if you don't have everything. - Even if you don't have all of your foot is shot. - You can change how long the media is to have specifically exactly how long of a clip you - want, - which is pretty cool it down. - Here s so that's new offline file New title, - This is Ah, - if you want to create titles will go over this Exactly how you create titles. - Ah, - but it it's a great way to add titles. - Two videos You can add new bars and tone. - So this is, - um if you are creating something more for, - um I guess, - like for TV or for a film festival? - Um, - lots of film festivals require bars and tone before video so that they can, - uh, - screen it correctly. - Projected correctly, - That's bars and tone. - You can create a new black video. - Just if you need a black background, - you can have black video or just something to take up space. - In your timeline, - you can create new color, - Matt. - So here you can select whatever color you want. - Sometimes I need a nice white background. - I usually rename it White Matt, - and then you can bring this down onto your timeline. - And, - uh, - there you have this white Matt. - Um, - and you can do a universal counting leader. - So this will be like a counter if you need a countdown, - and you can do a transparent video as well. - You just need kind of ah, - noel object, - transparent video that you have over your your other video. - Um, - you can add effects to that and stuff. - So that is the new item. - But in right here, - and you're gonna be using that a lot. - It's got a lot of cool tools if you're creating professional films that are going to be - screened and tools that we're just going to use all the time, - Like adding titles or sequences, - um, - or even color mats. - I use those all the time. - All right. - Thanks for watching. - I hope this lesson was educative educational, - and you enjoyed it, - so I'll talk. - You guys later have a great one. 10. Subclipping in Adobe Premiere Pro: - uh, - guys, - what's up? - This is Phil, - Evan er and I am with video school online dot com bringing you another lesson and Adobe - Premiere Pro. - Today we're gonna be talking about sub clipping, - which is, - ah, - form of organizing and for prepping to make a great video. - So what a sub clip is when you take a portion of video clip that you have, - and you basically create a new clip out of that short and video. - So it's for when you want to select a portion of a video and create this its own clip in - your project files so that you can easily find a great answer to an interview question. - You can easily find the best part of a ah B roll shot. - Um, - so let me go through it and explain it a little bit more. - So, - for example, - I would go into my video full or open up an interview, - the interview sample that I have, - and then I would play through it. - Leave my family, - you know, - and anybody who knows me will tell you. - So maybe I want that clip. - Anybody that knows me will tell you that, - and I want that to save that for a later time Because I know I'm going to use that clip - because that's a great sound bite. - Then I would set my in and out points around that clip. - So basically selecting that portion of the clip so I'm at the end of that clip. - So I'm gonna at the end of that sound boy bite rather. - So I'm gonna press o on the keyboard or select this mark out, - but it I'm going to go to the start and set my endpoint. - This is definitely my family, - so I'm gonna keep that part too. - And I'm going to press I on my keyboard to set the in or click this in mark in. - So now I just want that specific part Teoh easily be found later at a later time. - So I'm going to to go up to clip, - make sure you have this selected clip and make sub clip or you compress command. - You I asked you to name your sub clips. - All say, - oh, - I'll just say this sound by and I'll call it family. - So now you can see that a new clip has has been created in my project files if I double - click that and open it. - This entire clip is just that section. - Now, - this is definitely my family, - you know, - And anybody who knows me will tell you. - So now I have that great audio by. - I can easily bring down to my timeline at a later date when I'm putting together my my - video. - And so this is a great weight of organizing and I do this all the time. - When I'm making documentaries, - I basically go through an entire interview and sub clip everything. - I get all the best sound bites and I create sub clips of them. - I rename them, - create a folder for sub clips, - and this will definitely speed up the process later. - This is more of an advanced topic, - but it's something that will definitely speed up the process of editing later down the road - . - And you can do that with your B roll. - Say Okay, - I'm gonna bring up this sample B roll, - so it's a little bit shaky right there. - Say, - I just want that one little dig that big dig that he's doing see the coaches digging into - the field. - So I just want that part Well, - I'm just going to select that part, - Create a side clip command, - you sub clip. - We'll do, - uh, - probably called beer. - Oh, - digging. - And so there it creates a new supple. - It will drop it into my sub clip folder, - and I'll have that for a later date to use when I'm looking for when I'm looking for a - great great B roll, - I don't have to go through all my video again and find that great shot. - I can just go to my sub clip, - find you know, - the name of the shot, - and I already know that's a great shot. - So it's a great way for speeding up the editing process. - Thank you for watching. - I hope you enjoy this lesson. - If you have any questions, - please get back to me. - Email me at video school online at gmail dot com. - Until next time, - have a great day 11. Pulling Selects: - Hey, - guys, - it's Philip Inner Again with video school online dot com, - with another lesson in Adobe Premiere Pro Today. - I want to talk about the first step in actually making a video. - I've gone through kind of the basics of Adobe Premiere Pro. - We've talked about sub clipping. - We've talked about organization, - and we've talked about the timeline. - But now I want to talk to you more about actually what you're supposed to do, - what the next steps are for. - Making a great video on the 1st 1 is called Pulling Selects. - So a select is a clip or a part of a video that is good, - and it's basically the process of trimming the fat from all of your video that you've shot - and I do. - The way that I pull select is I create a new sequence, - So I'm going to do that. - I'm going to create a new sequence going to call it selects, - and in this timeline, - I'm just going to bring down all of the good footage that can potentially go into the movie - . - This doesn't mean that all that has to be end up in the final cut. - It's just pulling the good stuff. - So then I will go through all of my sub clips and bring down all of the sub clips that I - think will work. - Or, - um, - if I haven't done sub clips, - I'll just go through my interview. - So if this is like a, - um, - if this is a documentary or a non narrative film non basically fiction film, - then this is. - Usually you have someone speaking or you have different clips unless it's just a montage. - And so I would go down on I would, - you know, - select portions of my interview is sound bites that I like. - Obviously, - I'm not really going through it and doing it to show you I don't want to take up too much - of your time, - but I would go through my whole interview, - find the answers that I like and just put them down. - And no, - just in linear order and just chronological order of the interview. - You don't have to start organizing it yet. - That's the next step. - And then I, - um, - also for my B roll. - I go through my B roll and I pull selects and I just take all my B roll and awe unifying - clips that I like and I'll just bring him down onto my timeline. - Now some people. - There's two ways to do this. - There's either the sub clipping way for B roll, - and you can put sub clip all of your B roll clips and put him in a folder for later and - renamed them, - which is a great way. - Or if if you have gotten more comfortable with just putting clips on a timeline and working - later with them, - that's great as well. - And that's what I do so all I'll go through all my video. - I'll have all my selects hold. - So now I have, - ah, - a timeline of selects. - And so, - uh, - I have my whole interview down here. - Obviously not just three clips that have my B roll later and the next steps all edit this - together. - All used the B roll that I haven't put it over the interview and go from there. - But that is what pulling selects is, - and I'm sure you'll hear Hear that. - Ah, - if you are in the media or video industry, - um, - and you haven't heard it yet. - It's a term that we use for pulling the best clips down to your timeline. - So if you're working on a project which I highly recommend while doing this class or these - tutorials, - go ahead and do that. - Go ahead and pull all the selects for your video and put them down on a timeline called - Selects. - And then, - from from the select sequence will turn that into a rough cut sequence, - which will learn about in the next tutorial. - All right, - thanks for watching, - and I hope you learned a lot. - If you have any questions, - please contact me at video school online at gmail dot com. - Until then, - have a great day. 12. The Rough Cut: - Hey, - guys, - what's up? - This is Philip Veneer with video school online dot com. - Today I want to talk to you about what goes in a rough cut. - We're continuing our series of lectures on how to edit in Adobe Premiere Pro. - Last time we talked about pulling selects from your footage, - whether your interviews or your B roll or whatever video type you have. - And so what goes into a rough cut? - Ah, - few things. - First, - if you are doing a documentary style video, - I basically categorized my two videos into two categories. - Fiction and nonfiction. - Um, - in a fiction, - of course you're going to have a script, - and you're going to have Actor is speaking lines and all that. - And in a nonfiction or a documentary style, - it's more of someone speaking on camera as an interview that is B roll footage or it's an - informational video or it's just animations or something like that. - And so, - for a narrative film, - uh, - the the rough cut consists of putting together a and edit where you have, - uh, - set all your your clips in the places where they are supposed to be. - So for your scene, - you have you shot lined up. - You have the dialogue and the audio roughly edited, - put in order and massed up with each shot and you don't have. - You don't really include any titles or effects or transitions or anything like that. - You can, - but you don't have to. - And so say you have ah, - seen about a kid getting a ice cream sandwich from an ice cream truck. - You would have. - You would lay down each shot onto your timeline down here, - where the kid walks up wide shot of the kid walking up close up of him, - asking for an ice cream sandwich, - etcetera, - etcetera. - For a non fiction or a documentary style, - it's a little bit different because we don't have that kind of preset idea of how the story - is going to go. - We're kind of making it up as we edit. - And while we might have written down some notes or pre plan some things that we wanted to - be said, - Ah, - really, - it never. - You know, - it's never comes out perfectly in an interview, - and you're always having to kind of create the story as an editor. - That's what I learned in film school as as in my documentary classes. - We talked a lot about how the story really comes out in the editing. - So down here on my timeline, - I basically put out my interview, - and this is kind of what you're going to want to do in your in your rough kite. - You're going to want to lay down your interview on your first track video. - One track. - I always use this for the basic video editing, - the basic interview, - Um, - or basic dialogue shots. - This first track. - And then I put the B roll on the second and third, - and I'll put the titles on one layer. - Aziz. - Well, - so I keep it organized that way. - So I always know that clips on video, - too, - are going to be B roll shots. - So as you can see here, - I mean, - right now it's just an example. - It's 19 seconds, - but I lay down my interview down here, - have four clips, - and then I put my B roll shots over the video where I wanted to go and we'll watch through - this. - It doesn't make any sense. - I quickly just through the clips down there in no particular order and it repeats, - but you'll get the idea of what a rough cut should look like. - This is definitely so the coaches talking. - I have a B roll shot over it. - It goes back to the coach, - back to a shot of the coach playing, - uh, - practicing, - I think, - goes back to the coach. - And so I would continue this and keep laying down the story, - putting it roughly in the order that I want and have a rough story from start to finish - with my interview and with my B roll over it. - And that's what is in a rough cut. - You don't have toe edit any audio. - You don't have to add any effects. - This is the cut that is totally rough. - That's what is called Rough Cut, - and I that's all you need to do. - So in the next lessons, - we're gonna be learning all about adding titles, - adding effects, - tweaking things, - Um, - and once you have those, - you get kind of a fine cut what you call fine cut. - And that is the last cut before you make your final edits to create your final cut. - But the raka is that your first step? - So see how I did it here. - You have your first layer of, - like, - interview or or dialogue footage, - and then the second layer is your B roll. - Later, - we're gonna be adding titles to this third layer. - Um, - and adding effects to each of our videos. - All right, - cool. - Thank you so much for watching I Have you learned a lot? - If you have any questions, - please let me know at video school online at gmail dot com and reference this course in the - subject line, - please. - That would help me a lot and, - uh, - have a great day talking later. 13. Audio: Leveling: - still Abner back with another lesson in Adobe Premiere Pro. - This is for video school online dot com. - Check it out for more great free tips, - tricks in tutorials as well. - Some other online courses, - podcast, - e books and more. - So, - um, - today we're talking about audio lovely on, - and it's something you're going to need to know how to manually edit your audio to decrease - this audio, - the audio levels, - the loudness in certain areas of your video and leaving the rest at the the normal level - that you recorded it at. - And I have a great, - uh, - example here. - I recorded some some audio from this space ball game of the coach, - yelling at his yelling to his Blair's not yelling at his players. - Ah, - and it's it's good, - except there's a couple parts where he starts clapping and it's really loud. - So let's listen through that. - I think so. - You get a good idea what we're gonna be working with, - and before we do that, - I'm going to show you over here on the left. - I brought up this audio master meters and this allows me to see the levels of the audio. - Audio levels are quantified in decibels, - so zero is basically your starting point, - and negative six means negative six decibels. - And it's just a quantity of, - of how loud your footages or your audio is. - And so negative 30 is going to be a lot quieter than negative. - Six DB And so, - while we're watching through this, - you'll see the levels bouncing up run around between zero and negative six. - So for when you're making a actual professional film, - usually theaters, - movie theaters have a a decibel level that they want you to record at, - or your video and your end final audio mix to be bouncing around. - And usually it's around negative. - 18. - At least when I was in school, - when we were producing our our thesis films, - we had to level it at negative 18 db. - And it didn't mean that every audio, - every piece of audio in your film had to be exactly bouncing around Negative 18. - It just means that it should be around there. - The dialogue should be around there, - and then music should be, - you know, - under that and then if there's any loud bangs or gunshots or anything like that, - it can bounce up higher. - But it definitely shouldn't beginning around zero or in the red now for you guys. - If you guys are just making videos online, - you don't have to worry too much about what level is at. - But you do have to pay its engine to the I guess the change in levels. - You don't want your audio to be at negative six and then all of a sudden drop to negative - 18 or vice versa. - You don't want your dialogue to be negative 18 and then one clip is going to be at negative - six. - Or that will be super loud and it will be uncomfortable on hurt your your viewers ears. - So let's watch this clip or listen to this clip and see what I'm talking about. - So the coaches yelling, - he's clapping Greatcoat Marco on. - Great, - you know, - and you can see that for you Press jockey. - These levels are bouncing way up here and starting to be yellow. - If it turns red, - that means it's it's being distorted, - and it's way too hot or or loud. - That's what we call a lot loudness in in video editing, - it's too hot. - So what I want to do is see those ones are bouncing between native six. - Negative 12 and I like that these ones are bouncing up louder, - and I want to decrease those two between negatives six and negative 12. - To do that, - we edit it in the effects controls panel up here. - You don't see that you can go upto window and make sure you have effects controlled - selected, - and then you drop down those volume menu. - And here we're going to play with key frames. - And key framing is a way of manually editing the audio on and basically setting a point, - setting a key frame at a point in time and telling it to play the audio at a certain level - . - So right now it's at standard zero db. - If we decreased this, - it's going to decrease the level of the audio overall. - So, - for example, - right now, - zero dio it's playing up around zero and negative six. - But if we decrease this to negative 10 it should be down to negative no, - between negative 15 20 Marquand. - So as you can see, - we move the entire the entire volume for this entire clip down, - and that's hardly what we want to. - But now this audio at the start of the clip is way down below. - What we want it It's down a negative 20 Negative. - 30. - We want it to be right around between negative six negative. - 12. - So we're gonna get rid of that t frame by by selecting it and deleting. - And the way we set a key frame is by pointing this clicking this diamond. - It's a symbol right here. - So I want to change this to zero. - And then I was just gonna delete that key frame. - So now it's at standard zero and I want to be at Santa zero until after this first set of - of lines or the first audio that we hear do it So right there is It's still good, - but after that it gets too loud. - So I'm going to set a key from it. - Zero. - And before he starts clapping, - I'm going to decrease the this too negative 10 and we'll see how that comes out. - Begin zooming in on this timeline by using this slider down here. - I'm going to actually move this. - Keep this first key frame back, - so it's more of a smoother transition. - So let's play this Marquand Great. - You know So now the whole time this audio could plays. - It's balancing between negative six and Nega 12. - You can see that these key frames are shown on this timeline down here, - and it's kind of like a little hill. - It goes from zero, - and it goes down to negative 10 because we change that. - So, - as you can see, - let's play through it one more time. - You'll see these levels bouncing between negative six and 9 12 and still. - Now it's bouncing between negative 16 negative 12 a lot before you pressed jockey. - So now is exactly how we want it. - We it's not too loud. - It's not too soft and staying at a constant level. - And that's what you're aiming for when you're leveling your audio. - That's what this is called leveling your audio. - So I know that was is getting more advance and ah, - it's a little bit more confusing using these key frame techniques. - So if you have any questions, - please email me at Video school online at gmail dot com. - But let's do a quick overview of what you do. - The level you set a point in time on your timeline, - and then you said a key frame by clicking this this ad removed key frame diamond. - Then you move up or back in you press or you click this 0.0 db or whatever number this is - and you type in your desired decibel level. - And that is that is not necessarily your desire to decibel level of the actual audio. - It's just the change in decibel level of this clip. - So I was gonna go front. - It's going to decrease negative 10 decibels, - and that creates a transition between the key frames from zero to negative 10. - And then you just have to play with that and go throughout your entire audio and make sure - that the whole thing is at a constant level. - Whatever you determine is the best level for you. - Between snagged of six negative 12 is usually pretty good. - You just don't want it bouncing up near the zero and turning red and being too hot and - distorted. - I that was a lot. - So I leave you there. - Thanks for watching and have a great day. - Talk to you later. 14. Audio: EQ/Equalization: - Hey, - guys, - let's talk about another advanced audio effect or editing technique called equalization or - sometimes known as E. - Q. - You might come across that term when you are browsing online, - or if you're talking to someone a professional sound editor, - they might talk about e que. - It was a way of basically making your audio sound better by playing with the high frequency - sounds and the low frequency sounds and the mid frequency sounds. - And so what do I mean by high, - low and mid frequency sounds? - I'm not talking about the loud and the soft sounds. - I'm talking about the high pitched and the low pitched sounds. - So my voice is lower frequency wise than a girl with a high voice. - Ah, - there might be some girls with lower voices on me, - but on on average, - I have a lower frequency voice than most girls. - Um, - just so the sound of a car rumbling is going to be lower than the sound of a whistle or a, - uh, - siren are a doorbell or something like that. - And so to edit, - audio, - edit the e que There's an actual effect Cold e cube under audio effects. - So the way to bring up on effect is make sure your effects tab is open by going up to a - window and making sure effects is checked. - Go to this tab and you can either search by going into the audio effects and just finding - it or which is easy. - Or you can just type in e Q. - And then there's your e que equalization equalizer effect. - I brought up this interview to show you how to use it. - So first to Adam affected your audio. - All you need to do is click and drag and drop it onto that clip. - Now, - as you can see up here in this effects control, - we have this e que effect that we can customize. - So then we want to go to custom set up. - We just want to make this window bigger so we can see what we're doing. - So you can see all of this, - This whole program right here, - a little equalization program, - and I'm gonna show you how you use it. - First, - I'm going to play this clip. - Definitely my family, - you know, - and in this clip is actually the sound is recorded quite well. - We put a laval ear mic microphone on him on his jacket. - But you still hear some like high pitched, - just like nature sounds and the low pitch like noise of just like the street and everything - . - And so in this equalization panel, - I want to, - um, - uh, - basically play with the highs and the lows. - To do that, - the first thing you have to do to is to click check these boxes for lows or there's three - mid range is. - And as you can see, - there is graph. - It shows the, - uh, - the frequency right here on the bottom from 0 to 20,000 hurts and the decibels. - This is the volume or the loudness, - and that goes from zero up to 20 into negative 20. - You can also edit the loudness with this equalization, - some basic, - uh, - some basic things to do when you are equalizing. - Your footage is basically to get rid of the lows sounds and get rid of the high sounds so - that the mid range sound, - the mid range freak made mid range frequencies are the ones that are really being heard. - And those air, - like the rich ones. - Ah, - and also by getting rid of these low ones over here and the high winds over here, - you get rid of some of that external noise that we don't want. - So usually I just make sure all of these air checks that I can edit them. - And before I actually go in and show you what I'm doing with this clip to edit you just to - change the frequency, - you can increase and decrease. - Uh, - with this knob, - you just click and move up and down and you can see that green dot moving up and down and - then to lower the decibels, - which is the gain so controlling the gain, - you can increase or decrease. - So I hope you can see kind of the process of what we're going to be doing. - So by decreasing the game down here, - we're getting rid of everything you know, - below this 50 and it creates this nice, - smooth kind of graph. - Well, - it shows up as a smooth graph, - but that means it's kind of a smooth transition from, - you know, - zero to this next point, - which is the 202 100 frequency, - which is where this midpoint one is and we want it. - We like it to be smooth. - We don't want it to be all the way. - We don't want to Just to cut off at 50. - Sometimes you do, - sometimes you don't. - But usually if you can get away with not having to cut it, - which you do by clicking this, - it basically just cuts it off at 50 or wherever you put this hurts knob. - Um, - you do that by doing this cut, - um, - and that gets rid of all off. - All sound. - All frequencies 50 and below. - Throughout. - We wanna have it kind of smooth. - A smooth transition, - though. - So first, - I'm going to bring this up to zero, - and I want you toe here kind of what I'm doing, - and you can play with it while the the interviews going. - So I'm gonna play this. - This is definitely my family, - you know, - and anybody I know, - we will tell you that. - So let me play it again. - This is definitely my family, - you know, - and anybody know, - we will tell you that. - So I got rid of some of those noises that were, - um that were, - uh, - in the background. - And, - uh, - you can tell that I already got a little bit richer volume of a sound. - I'm gonna continue to play with this. - I'm gonna play with the lows, - and I'm gonna play with the mids. - This is definitely my family, - you know, - And anybody that knows, - we will tell you that this is definitely my family, - you know, - and anybody that knows me will tell you that. - All right, - this last, - uh, - But these last night down here, - the queue for each of these midpoint, - it basically creates how broad the effect is. - The higher the Q factor. - It means the more frequencies that it effects. - So you can play this and then you can bypass this effect. - Meaning you can take it off quickly without undoing it or deleting it. - But checking this bypass box right here and we're gonna play it, - gonna play it and turn off the bypass so you can see what the difference is. - This is definitely my family, - you know, - and anybody that No, - we will tell you so you can see that I'm losing some high frequency sounds. - And I'm losing a little bit of his voice. - So I wanna increase this spring. - Quit. - See? - Right here. - So it's not losing so much of his voice. - and actually move up this mid three, - uh, - frequency. - This is definitely my family. - You know, - anybody who knows me, - and then I want I like boosting this kind of mid range right here a little bit, - uh, - as you saw. - And as you can see, - I can just actually affect all of these knobs by just clicking and dragging. - Uh, - these boxes and these two boxes to the left and right of the big box are the Q factor. - So you can play with that. - So that boost that mid sounds and it's making it sound a lot better. - Definitely my family, - you know, - and anybody who knows me will tell you that. - So you still get the background noise of the street and, - um, - you know the players in the background. - But overall, - it sounds a lot better, - and his voice sounds a little bit more richer. - And it's not, - as I guess, - digital that those high frequency sounds make it sound kind of digital and fake. - And so equalization is a great way to make your video sound a lot better. - And it's relatively easy toe easily done. - Really, - all you have to do is just drop the lows. - Drop the highs and boost the mids, - or at least keep the mids around this range. - So in the end, - you should have a graph that looks about like this. - It's like a mountain, - basically, - Um, - and this is also a great way to get rid of sounds like if there is a, - ah, - air conditioning rumbling in the background or, - you know, - who knows? - Sometimes there's like high pitch noise or high pitched frequencies that are just playing -

Audio: Fades: - guys. - Let's talk about another advanced audio topic, - something that I used in almost every video that I make, - and it's called a fade. - And, - you know, - you probably know what a fate is. - It's sometimes most times you refer to a fade when you're talking about video, - the actual video and not the audio. - Um, - where you know you have fades from white to black are from, - you know, - different transitions but an audio. - There's also ah, - use for fades, - and it's basically fading from no sound to sound or from sound to no sound or from one type - of sound to one another clip of sound. - And it's a great way to get rid of any bad pops or noises that happens at the start of - clips, - because when you're laying down multiple clips of video with multiple audio cuts, - sometimes the audio cuts are are weird. - There's either pops or are some sort of snap or some weird sound. - Just cause you're cutting into a sound. - And an easy waiting to change that is with a fade, - especially when you're you are are introducing an audio clip for the first time. - For example, - in this video, - this wedding video that I edited I It's a montage of clips and then it has a an audio clip - from one of the speeches. - So take a look here, - just a montage. - And then I go into this clip of, - uh, - the the one of the bridesmaids giving a speech. - But as you can see right here where the audio starts right here, - See, - that's a very abrupt jump, - and I don't want to be like that. - I want to slowly fade in. - So there are two options, - one of constant gain and one is constant power. - If you just type in constant into your effects browser, - they will both come up. - Either of them will work for the start of the clip, - so I'll show you how it works. - So you place it on there like that, - just drag and drop, - and then you can. - I'm going to zoom in here so you can see creases kind of purple effect. - At the end of the clip, - you can increase in decrease the length of the fade, - so I just want very quickly fading into this clip, - so we'll play it. - So as you can see there, - it's a slower fade into the audio s so there. - It's a lot nicer than if it's off. - You get this kind of abrupt of abrupt, - um, - abrupt jump in audio. - Same with constant power, - just a quick fade into audio. - You can do it longer or shorter, - depending on what? - How soon the talking starts. - I mean sometimes literally. - I'm putting on one frame fades just to get rid of like a pop or just an awkward sound. - And I keep referring to the term pop cause. - You'll notice as you do more more videos. - There is a distinct sound called a pop when you went when there's audio being cut into you - can also fade between two audio clips. - So I have two speeches on it is very subtle. - You don't really hear the back change in the clips, - but you can add. - You know, - these. - These transitions and the difference between constant power and constant gain is that when - you're you're transitioning, - putting this transition between two clips, - so as you can see, - you can drag it and you can drag it on either side of this edge of the clip. - If you put on the middle, - it's ah transitions cross fades both clips. - If you put on one side, - it just cross fades the second clip into the first clip, - and if you put on this side of the cut across fades the first clip into the start of the - second clip. - I'm gonna put it on the middle, - and with the constant gain, - it actually slowly fades out the first first clip. - And then it fades into the second clip at the same. - So the volume it actually goes higher toe lower for the first club and then the volume on - the second club. - It goes lower to higher for constant power. - It basically leaves the level of the volume the same throughout the clip. - So if you um, - if you put this constant power on and you increase this the length of it, - you'll notice that the first clip you'll still be able to hear it well into this second - click. - And it does. - It does fade out, - but it's not as abrupt as this constant gain, - which I recommend when you are cross training between two clips. - It's hard to hear on this lesson, - but, - uh, - that's basically how it works, - So use these transitions between clips between audio to fade in music at the start of a - video to fade out music at the end of the video or whatever use you need, - but it's a great tool tohave when you are editing your audio. - Thank you for watching. - Let me know if you have any questions until next time. - Have a great day by 16. Audio: Effects: - guys, - let's talk a little bit more about the audio effects that we have in Adobe Premiere Pro. - If you just open up this folder in the effects panel, - you'll notice that there are a bunch of different effects, - and I'm going to go through some of them the most useful ones. - So, - uh, - first of all base will increase Thea amount of base or lower sounds. - You might need this, - So let's play with that. - Definitely my family, - you know, - and anybody know we'll tell you that. - So it's bringing up the lower frequency sounds, - obviously, - for this clip. - I don't want that because, - as we learned before in the queue session, - we want to get rid of some of those based sounds. - Ah, - channel volume will allow you to increase the volume for each channel, - left or right, - if you're doing a stereo. - If you're doing like a 5.1 surround sound, - uh, - you'll have different channel pills for for each or different volume meters for each - channel. - And so this is kind of cool if you want to change, - sound from one year to the next are from one side to the next. - So if there's a car going from one side of the screen to the other side of the screen. - It might be cool to play with with these effects. - Ah, - let's see Dick D clicker de crack ler di essere and D Hummer and D noise. - Er these air all effects that try to automatically fix your sound if you have clicking in - your in your audio or if there is, - ah, - hum like a steady hum of a vacuum while they're probably gonna be a vacuum. - But study home of ah, - air conditioner or a refrigerator or something in the background, - these ones, - you basically just click and drag and drop, - and you can customize them, - but they try to fix them by themselves. - Phil Left and feel right. - These air. - Good, - because sometimes you record audio, - and it is only coming out of one speaker, - so you can use these to basically fill the other side of the speaker or the other side. - So, - um, - if you recorded in mono, - but you want to make it stereo or if you recorded in stereo but Onley in one side, - one left or right then and the other side doing it recorded, - say For example, - I have, - ah, - audio recorder that zoom h four n and I have my lovelier microphone plugged into my left - input, - but nothing plugged into my right input. - And so when I'm recording a record sound stereo, - but I'm actually only recording sound in the Left Channel, - so it's really actually mono. - But these Phil left and fill right will allow you to basically multiply that audio into the - other channel so that you have audio coming from both speakers High pass and low pass. - These are interesting. - This is kind of what? - What e que does high pass Will, - um, - basically cut off any noises above, - um above this frequency right here. - So anything that is below that, - it's it's good. - It'll keep it there. - Um, - and above it, - it will, - uh, - we'll get rid of it. - So let's play with this. - No. - And anybody who knows me will tell you that. - So for high pass, - um, - it is going to, - as you can see, - when I brought down the frequency, - a more audio, - more sounds were available for us to hear. - This is definitely my family, - but when I bring it up, - it's cutting the sounds that are below this 9 84 I'm sorry if I confused you earlier. - I think I said it the opposite. - So for a high pass, - it basically passes. - Let's pass any sound that's above this That's higher than this. - So any number that any frequency that's higher than this it passes through, - and it allows you to hear it for low pass. - It does the Ott opposite, - so it allows any audio below this number toe to play everybody, - As you can see, - there, - you listening. - It's all the load noises cause it's letting anything lower than this number through. - So there is air good to play with. - Ah, - and you can actually use those instead of eq you if you want to. - Um, - Volume. - You can add another volume, - uh, - effect to increase, - say, - because these volume controls will only allow you to go plus six db You can multiply them, - though if you have a not audio that you want to bring up or make louder, - you can add multiple volume effects on bring it up. - But you got to be careful because the more and more you increase the level of the audio, - the more that it can get get distorted. - The last one I want to talk to you about his reverb. - This is kind of a cool Effect River, - but as a little bit of echo to your sound. - And so there it sounds like he's standing in auditoriums, - speaking to a crowd and say, - You need that effect for some audio Instead of actually having to record in a big studio or - a big, - empty room that has an echo, - you can just add a little bit of reverb to it. - So those are some of the cool effects that you're gonna be using in Adobe Premiere Pro. - Let me know if you have any questions about the other effects or any of the ones that I - talked about, - and I hope you have a great day. - Keep making your movies. - I'm excited to see anything that you produce, - So if you're working on something and you finish it up, - send it over to video school online at gmail dot com or through the course website. - Thanks for watching and have a great day 17. Audio - Music: - Hey, - guys, - what's up? - This is fill with another lesson talking about audio. - And today I want to talk about music and what type of music music you choose for your - videos, - where you find it and how to actually place it in your videos. - I'm working on this promo video for a side project window jerseys dot com We create jerseys - for your car. - Um, - so here, - you can see, - um, - I've got this video of, - um, - my my buddy putting on installing a jersey window jersey for your car. - So, - um, - check it out with New Jersey's dot com. - A violent today. - Uh, - so that's my plug. - But let's talk about music. - So I have a few basic tips for choosing music. - One is, - don't go with whatever's popular. - Uh, - don't go get the lid. - Is Justin Bieber song or whatever? - A because in a couple weeks it's probably not gonna be popular anymore, - And B because unless you have the rights, - you're technically not supposed to use that music. - Um, - so you do have to have the rights to whatever music you use, - and this limits our options a bit. - There are a few a few, - um, - websites that you can use. - I'm gonna actually just go ahead and write them out right here so that you can see the - websites that that I use. - Um, - so we have ah, - audio jungle dot net. - I mean, - she's fun. - I always get this wacky fun. - Eso audio jungle dot net is one. - Um, - you license is another one, - you license dot com dot com And these are two sides where you can actually purchase music - for your videos, - you can go to gym endo dot com It's another one. - Um, - Endo and all these have some decent songs. - Audio Jungle is one I used all the time. - Now they have a ton of songs, - thousands of options. - You congrats very through a variety of genres, - or you can just basically type in a feeling and I'll come up with different music for you. - Um and so I know it's hard work, - but these finding a good song is really important for your for your video. - Another idea I have is is, - uh, - you can search for free creative Commons music and there's a few sites you can go to. - Video music store has a few eso. - That's just the video site. - Actually, - de Meo, - I think it's just been you dot com slash music. - We'll have. - We'll take you to a music store where you can purchase music. - But also there is some free stuff. - Tremendous also has some free ones. - And if you type in Creative Commons music into Google, - you'll find some free music. - The quality is not that great. - You'll have to really sift through, - ah, - lot to find good stuff. - But you might. - You might find a diamond in the rough Now, - now and then on The big thing with choosing music is to another tip is to not have music - with lyrics in it When people are seeing the background, - it's really hard, - uh, - to lay that music over a video if your video has dialogue. - So, - for example, - this this video, - it's a how to video, - and I'm actually narrating it. - And so I didn't wanna have music with lyrics with someone singing in the background, - because then it lyrics and my voice would get mess all mixed mashed, - and it's hard for the audience toe. - Listen to so finding an instrumental piece is definitely key, - so I I got this little song, - This song from Audio Jungle. - It's called, - uh, - your little planet, - and so you can listen to it here, - I'll I'll play it for you. - So it's a nice tune, - you know, - Super happy, - super bright, - perfect for a little how to video. - So there's different ways to set the levels for your audio because you're definitely going - to want to put your music, - uh, - lower than your dialogue. - So I have this track of audio up here, - and I have my music down here. - I could either go to my each clip of music. - See here I've spiced this song together in different parts to extend it. - Um, - you can do that as well. - You can either click on the clip and good a volume and make the volume lower, - and you could do that for each clip, - or there's a easy, - an easier way to do it. - You can just go to your audio mixer, - and this controls the audio for each track, - and then you can lower. - You can have all your music on one track, - and you could just lower that track, - and that's what I did. - So now track three with my music is about negative 12. - It's about 12 D DBs or now you actually 13.3. - That's a lot to put a negative 12 decibels lower than my voice. - So now let's play it. - Hankins here, - my voice compared to the music. - First, - clean your car window and get rid of any dust using a lint free rag or paper towel. - You may even want to get your car washed. - I might even build. - Bring this up to about negative 10 without your jersey with your fingers or a credit card. - But you also want to make sure that the level of the music stays the same throughout, - because sometimes certain parts of the song are lower than others. - Right now, - the song sounds great, - but I can tell here by looking at this wave form down here that see these wave for it this - way. - For him, - it's a graph. - It's a representation of how loud the music gets is. - The waves are bigger over here, - so I think it's gonna be louder. - Intel, - as the drums, - adds some other instruments, - and it is louder, - then a long strip. - My my audio is still loud enough, - and I don't think it. - It's to the music is to outside. - I'm just gonna leave it at that. - And so that's how you add music. - Um, - and again, - See, - I spiced it up, - but and I basically extended it by repeating one of the verses. - Then I used a cross dissolve or a constant, - uh, - gain dissolves starting to to dissolve the two pieces of music together. - And it sounds just like normal again. - Slowly apply your jersey onto the window, - starting from the center and moving outwards. - You couldn't tell if that was you know how the song was supposed to go or if it was an edit - . - And so that is how you choose music, - add music and edit your music. - Remember that you can edit the audio levels through this audio mixer. - Um, - if you don't have, - if you don't see that you can go upto window audio mixer Or make sure audio master meters - is select. - It is on an audio mixer sequence 01 So whatever sequences, - you can have it up there. - All right. - Thanks for watching. - Let me know if you have any questions. - Have a great one 18. Color Correction vs. Color Grading: - Hello and welcome to Chapter Five video editing 101 We're moving onto a new chapter on this - first lesson. - We're gonna be talking about color and color grading versus color correction because there - is a difference. - And a lot of people, - especially people who have not been in the editing world, - don't know what that difference is. - But first, - let's start out with the movie. - Quote another one from Casa Blanca from Humphrey Bogart. - Um, - here's looking at you kid, - a famous line from the movie made in 1942. - A pleasant movie to watch. - So I urge you continue watching your movies, - and that's what I'm trying to get you to do. - When I do these movie quotes is, - if you haven't seen this movie's watch them, - they're amazing. - Um, - and you know, - they're not what movies are nowadays, - but just enjoy and appreciate what they were for at the time. - And they still live on today. - So color correction versus color grading. - Some of the key points are there are differences in correction. - It has to do with white bouncing, - adding contrasts, - just making the image pop a little bit more, - depending on what camera you're using. - You may not be getting images that looked like real life, - and that's basically what color correction wants to do it. - We want to turn footage into what it looks like in normal life. - Sometimes your settings air off on every camera, - um, - and you or you just don't know how to color but white balance on your camera. - So you get your footage back and this could be in photos or video. - You get your photo back in its blue. - It's got a shade of blue or shade of orange. - So color correction is, - you know, - taking that and turning into an image that looks normal for color grading. - Um, - that what sets get grading, - apart from correction is grating. - Gives your film or your video or your photo of feel it gives you, - gives it more emotion. - It has more of a meaning to it, - so you might add a a, - um, - at some reds or some yellows to make it feel a little bit warmer. - Um, - and or you might make it blue to make it a little bit colder, - and the feeling that that gives off is is either happiness or sadness or you may, - um, - crank The contrast may get super contrast E or or use use some sort of grading to make it - look old fashioned. - I mean, - in every movie, - now they're doing some sort of color correction and tip, - and in most they're doing doing some sort of grading to give up feel and any you can. - You can accomplished each of these goals through any editing software out there. - I'm gonna be using Final Cut pro for this, - and you can use it with the basic color corrector. - Of course, - there are our software programs that you can, - and by that I have great effects presets that turn your video from dull and boring, - too, - something that looks like it came from a film camera. - Um, - So if you if you really get into color, - correction or grading, - which is something that I've gotten into, - um, - just, - uh, - yeah, - do your research and get some, - you know, - get some software, - and you will be ableto Teoh play around and do some magic. - But today we're gonna be working in final cut pro, - and I'm just gonna show you what I mean, - because next lesson we're gonna actually do the application. - So in final cut pro opening up my white balancing clip, - Um, - and it's gonna show up here in the viewer. - And as you can see here, - the color is really blue, - and this could have either come from the camera itself. - Just not doing not white balancing while you were shooting. - And this is a is a huge problem because you don't want to add to money effects to correct - your video. - The more effects you add, - the more problems that can happen with your film, - and it will just become. - It'll end up looking unnatural. - So the less effects that you have to actually do in post production, - the better. - So when you're out shooting or when your friend is out shooting video for you to add it, - tell them to color toe white balance because it's so easy. - Um, - and it will save you a lot of time, - and it will save your footage from looking rather poorly if you add a ton of effects to - make it look normal again. - So this footage I actually tweet in edited it to make it look poor, - and I added some blue to it. - But this, - you know if your if your camera has an auto white mounts um, - white balance feature, - then, - um, - it can easily get tweet whack when you're out filming, - because lights have different temperatures. - So sunlight has more white light or blue light compared to tungsten, - which is like your light bulb, - your incandescent light bulb. - That is it in your home? - Um, - so which is a lot warmer, - And so it just depends on where you're shooting, - that whatever settings you have to set, - there's also, - you know, - when you what you really should do, - rather than using the presets on your camera is to actually white balance. - And to do that, - uh, - you have a piece of white paper and you use the white balance feature on your camera toe - white bounce. - But that's getting more into the production side of it. - So we're here to do the editing. - So this is why balancing next lesson, - we're gonna be he actually doing this changing this, - how to make it look better. - But we can use the same clip for grading because maybe this was normal and you made it look - blue like this. - Maybe you wanted it to look, - um, - cold outside or you wanted it to be. - You know, - the the moment in this baseball game was kind of intense or getting, - uh, - you know, - sad Are you having? - You wanted emotions that were negative. - And so you add this color to it to give that feel. - Of course, - this isn't that great of, - ah, - grating job by Smith. - Two seconds on it. - But basically, - that is what you can dio to your footage to give it a feeling. - So that's it for this lesson. - We're gonna be getting hands on into it in the next couple lessons is a short chapter, - but today we have a exploration for your activity. - It's called World of Color, - and the activity is to collect paint chips from a hardware store wherever you confined - paint chips from your They're your drawer from the last time you painted your bedroom and - find colors that you respond to in the world. - Attempt to mask them, - using the chips to make notes of where you saw the color. - So go out fine colors in signs and buildings and nature and match him up to the color trips - . - It's really fun activity, - and it's a great way actually to pick a color for painting a room or or something like that - , - Um, - and it's also a great way to come up with color schemes for titles and fonts. - And when you're doing animations when editing and titles, - well, - beginning into a little bit more in the future. - But I hope you have fun with X to this exploration. - Of course, - if you ever need help editing uh, - your video if you have an issue in a problem, - just you can contact me if you need advice for a project you're working on. - Or if you have suggestions for my course, - because I'm always trying to make it better, - trying to get on the points across while not taking up too much of your time but also not - going too fast. - So please send me your suggestions and email me at dinner dot you to me at gmail dot com - for any of that. - So thank you for watching, - and that's it for Chapter five. - Lesson one 19. White Balancing: - Hey, - guys, - what's up? - This is Philip dinner, - and today we're going to start color correcting. - And in this lesson, - we're going to white bounce our footage and learn how the white balance. - Last lesson. - I talked about the differences between color correction and color grading, - and I was using a lesson from another course video editing 101 So even though that the - program I was using was final cut pro, - I'm sure you still learned the process and the meaning behind color correction and color - grading. - But we're back in Adobe Premiere Pro, - and I want to show you how to color. - Correct. - So, - um, - I brought up this clip the sample clip of this picture pitching, - and I actually tweak this. - You know, - I I a color corrected it poor leads. - Teoh show you this lesson so it's actually blew her. - But this is an actual, - um this is actually, - uh, - a type of video, - an error that you will come across because sometimes your white balance on your camera is - set to indoor lighting or light bulbs or shade or something like that, - and you end up with this bluish colored video, - or it might be super yellow and warm. - So to correct this, - there's a few different options. - But if you go under, - ah, - video effects were getting into our effects. - There is, - ah, - an entire color correction folder, - Um, - so there's lots of different things that you can use to correct your your colors. - But for white white white balancing, - there's a simple, - fast color corrector. - So take that click and drag and drop it onto your clip up here in your effects control - window, - a fast color corrector effect. - Customizer comes up with all sorts of different things that you can do but toe white - balance. - There is an easy There are two ways to do it. - One is automatic and one is manually to automatically white balance. - You click this pen, - I dropped tool this I dropped button. - Then you go into your footage and you find what should be white. - So in this clip, - the thing that should be white are these numbers on the outfield fence and his pants are - actually a grayish um so you can probably use those two, - but we're going to go ahead and use these this color this white quote unquote white white - letters on the numbers on the fence. - So then you just put your pointer over that your mouth and then click. - And it should make your your your video color corrected so you can see here that it tried - to make it color corrected. - Ah, - a bit. - You can take it again and try another spot because that London, - it seems to work so well. - I took his the color of his pants, - and that seemed to work a little bit better. - But then you might have to go in and tweak it a little bit, - so we know we want it to be warmer because it's a little bit blue. - So we want to take this bubble inside this color wheel and drag it over to the warm colors - . - And, - as you can see here as I drive it further and further, - if I drag it completely to the extreme, - it's almost better. - It's not technically worse than this. - It is a little over color corrected, - so I want to bring it back and just play with it until it looks natural. - So as you can see here, - it's between the red and the green that I want it to be. - So just play with it until the colors look natural. - And I would say about about right there is looking pretty good. - The numbers on the fence air white, - his pants are are a gray and they're not really a blue. - And this is a nice white balance picture. - There's a lot of things weaken due to this, - but we're going to learn those in the next lessons a lot of things to make it look better. - But for now, - that is how you white balance a clip. - So thank you for watching if you have any questions, - please. - Uh, - message me, - but if not, - have a great day and I will talk to you later. - Bye, - guys. 20. Adding Contrast: - uh, - guys, - this is Philip Ner back with another lesson in the color correcting chapter of the video - school. - Online dot coms Complete Guide to Adobe Premiere Pro. - So last time we talked about white balancing and we got our footage should look pretty good - , - pretty natural. - Um, - and there But there's a couple things that we can do to make it look even better, - because right now it's looking a little flat. - The colors aren't as punchy as we like, - so we want to add some contrast. - And what contrast does is it makes the darker colors darker and the brighter colors - brighter. - So basically, - it's like squeezing the color spectrum or the, - I guess, - the brightness spectrum of of the image. - So we can actually add contrast with our fast color corrector, - which we added last time to white balance. - So to do that, - we looked down at here at our input levels and output levels, - and you can either change them with these numbers down here by just clicking and dragging - these yellow numbers to the right of input black level and put gray level input white level - . - Or we can click these little icons. - They look like little, - uh, - Pentagon's, - um, - or not really Pentagon's. - But it's a five sided object, - and, - uh, - it is, - um, - we have the blacks over here on the left, - the graze right here in the middle of the white, - over here on the right. - So if we click and drag this one on the right and drag it to the left as we do that, - it's making the image brighter. - If I do it a lot, - you'll see. - Really? - See, - what I'm doing is making the whites whiter or the brights brighter. - So I want a pump. - Pump those up a little bit, - so I'm gonna do it about right there. - Then I'm going to take the blacks and with the blacks up just a bit. - If we go up here and we check Tuggle, - this effects. - But an on and off we can see what it looks like with and without our color Traction. - As you can see, - it looks a lot better, - but these colors, - um, - aren't as poppy as we want. - So by adding contrast, - it actually adds saturation at it makes the colors richer, - and that's a good thing. - Most times, - if we're going for that look, - but there's also a saturation but and right here or saturation option right here. - So I'm gonna pump this up to 1 25 just to make see what it looks like. - And that's looking a lot better. - I shot this footage using theme neutral settings in my canon seven D, - and so that makes the colors a little bit subdued. - But it also helps me to color correct later. - It gives them more options. - And so, - by adding that saturation and adding the contrast it pump, - it makes it a lot. - Look a lot better, - as you can see. - Look it here just like that. - So another thing we can do is I'm going to duplicate this fast color corrector by copying - and pasting Gonna turn one off. - Then I'm going to reset the saturation and the black and the white inputs. - As you saw, - I didn't play with these mid range ones because for this fast color corrector in Adobe - Premiere Pro, - the mid range slider, - it really, - really effects the look of the image. - And it, - like, - dramatically changes with every single notch that you put it up. - So I just like playing with the blacks and the whites and not really with the mids for this - effect. - But I want to show you another way to add contrast. - I'm gonna move these all the way back to what it was. - I'm going to close this. - So now I only have the color corrected version. - The white balance version of this fast color corrector on there is actually a brightness - and contrast. - The fact that I can drag and drop onto my footage and see here it has to quick options. - This is basically if you want a really quick option for adding contrast or broadening up - your footage and using this contrast sliders, - we can also That's another technique we use to make our video. - Better is if we want it brighter or darker. - You can use those sliders as well. - I'm just going to click and drag this this number up and see what it does as can see there - . - When I go way, - I see how bright these brights are now and the blacks it's just pure black. - And obviously I don't want that, - but that I just want to show you what the process is doing. - It's making the white so white that they're they're over exposed and distorted and the - black so black that there's no detail. - We want to be wary of that, - because in this black, - if it's the opposite, - as you can see, - if I go down to negative 24 contrast, - you get this detail. - It's hard to see for you, - probably. - But you see the shadows in issue, - and it's not just a black blob. - And these trees back here is not just a black blob. - And this is a look that, - um, - you know, - you might want as well a very d contrast it look, - um, - was something that if you've seen the latest Samsung commercials for their galaxy Siri's, - they use this very low contrast style so but we can add contrast. - So say we add about up to 15 that's, - you know, - looking about as good as our color corrected version. - Um, - one thing I noticed. - When we look at this color corrected version, - you can tell that it's really green, - and so maybe we are white Balance is a little bit off, - so we're going to move this bubble up a little bit higher into the Reds on, - maybe bring it back down towards the middle, - so it's not as as dramatic of a color correction or white balance, - and that looks a lot better already. - I so back to our brightness and contrast. - Um, - here you see our our colors are looking really good. - You can brightening up if you want just a little bit, - even just five or or 10. - Give it a little bit more brightness, - or you can make a darker depending on how you want to look. - But adding con dress is a great way to make your colors pop, - to make your image look better and just to give a little bit of a style to your video. - So those are the two ways that I have taught you how to add contrast. - There's lots of other ways you can use thes loom a curves. - You can use the RGB curves. - You can use the three way color corrector, - but for now, - I'm gonna leave it at that and let you guys practice that skill. - Thanks for watching. - Let me know if you have any questions until next time. - Have a beautiful day by 21. Color Grading - Styles: - Hey, - guys, - what's up? - This is Phil, - back with another lesson in the Adobe Premiere Pro course. - Today. - We want to talk about color grading, - so color grading is different than color correction because and it's often mistaken. - Ah, - two are used interchangeably interchangeably, - but they aren't supposed to be. - Color correction is making the colors look correct, - and color grading is adding a style or an emotion to your your footage through manipulating - the colors. - So I'm going to show you a quick example of how you color grade a piece of footage using - the fast color corrector, - which we've been using this whole time. - So I have his great image of the coach, - the baseball coach in this short documentary that I shot. - He's sitting in the dugout looking out on the field and depending on what kind of emotion - we want shown in this video. - Ah, - we can make it feel that way through colors. - So whether we want it to be kind of sad and depressing or just a little bit no, - just he's getting older, - the stories about how he's getting older and he's going to end his coaching career, - and so it could be we could make it a little bit sad, - depressing, - or we could make it warm and happy to make it sad. - We would add some blue to make it happy. - We would add some some yellow and some red to this. - So basically, - it's kind of like how we were were white balancing. - We take this color wheel, - we just play around with these colors. - So I'm going Teoh, - move it this way towards the yellow and this is making it look a little bit warmer. - He's a little bit happier. - I'm gonna add some saturation to make it, - you know, - even a little bit more colorful. - I'm going to bring down up the whites and bring up the blacks or make them darker just to - add a little bit more dramatic. - A dramatic look to this piece of footage. - So already you can see that this is a very warm feel. - It's a style compared to that which is the original, - and then you add it looking like that is definitely a style. - Say we want to make it a little bit sad, - depressing or just if we wanted to look like it's in the winter, - we can add some blue, - like so adding some blue, - maybe dropping the saturation a little bit so it's less saturated, - maybe making it, - uh, - a little bit brighter. - Um, - just something like that guy's a completely different feel than what we had before. - So, - as you can see, - there's many different ways to make your footage. - Have a certain feeling. - But you got to remember that usually adding yellows and reds tends to mean it's a little - bit happier at some warm feelings to your your footage. - And adding blue is a little bit Saturday, - more negative feelings, - and that is color grading. - So go ahead and practice that just with this fast color corrector, - it's super easy, - super easy to use. - And, - uh, - yeah, - that's color grading, - grading. - Let me know if you have any questions until next time. - Have a great day 22. Choosing a Font: - guys, - What's up? - This is filling. - We're moving onto a new topic in Adobe Premiere Pro. - We're going to be talking about titles. - And in this first lesson, - I'm just gonna talk to you about different fonts, - different titles, - what they all are. - And then we're going Teoh, - really Get into how you make title. - So I'm gonna just quickly create a tile right here. - But don't worry. - Later, - I'm going to show you exactly how to do it. - And, - uh, - what to dio I So there are basically two types of fonts. - There are Sarah fonts and Sohn Sarah fonts. - You might have heard these terms before, - but you might not have heard these term before. - Ah, - Sarah, - fun. - Let me just type in. - It's there. - If bonds let me change the color really quick again, - I'm gonna show you all this in the next lesson. - How to do this? - Let's pick a good Sara. - Fine. - Baskerville, - old face. - This is a great Sarah. - Fine. - A serif. - Is this little the edge of the letters, - So I'm gonna make this a little bit bigger so you can see it so you can see on the top of - the eye There's this fancy little edge on F again, - there's this edge on the bottom of end. - There's this edge. - It's basically a more artistic type of font Times New Roman is another. - Is another example of a Sarah fought, - Um, - and there's lots of Serra fonts in the library that comes with your computer. - Uh, - right here. - I'm just going through a few. - Charlotte, - Maine, - is one. - Um, - let's see. - Corey Courier new. - This has the Sarah's on the edges s. - So I think you get I think you get the picture. - Ditto. - And another one I. - So let's talk about Sohn Sarah fonts. - It's on me. - Create songs. - Serra Far Not sure if there is a dash in between sun surf, - but a sensor far is something like, - Let's see, - Ariel is a good song. - Serif font Um, - core bell, - this is one is they don't have the fancy edges. - They don't have the fancy edges and future. - This is a good example of a sans serif font. - Um, - and basically, - you can use either type of foreign in your in your video. - But editing programs like San Serif fonts better because when you're rendering these pixels - , - your video is made up of thousands of pixels, - and when it has these fancy little edges and curves, - sometimes it it doesn't render it right, - and it ends up being weird and glitchy. - But when it's nice, - smooth edges and it's not too fancy, - like this Future or Helvetica, - Helvetica is one of the most popular and cleanest fonts out there. - Helvetica Neue is another one that I use all the time. - And so I would I would stay away from these Sarah fonts, - Um, - unless the topic of your video calls for them say you're making a documentary about old - English writers or Shakespeare, - something like that, - that, - stylistically, - it might be nice to have a Serra font, - But for standard titles, - I would stay with sawn Sarah fonts. - So in the next lessons, - we're going to learn how to actually make these these titles. - We're gonna learn how to make introduction titles lower thirds and lots more. - So thank you for watching. - Have you got the difference between serif and sans serif fonts? - And, - uh, - let's take it from here and we're gonna learn a lot. - So So I'm looking forward to the next few lessons. - Talks later. - Bye 23. Lower Thirds Titles: - guys, - let's talk about creating lower thirds. - The last time we talked about creating some intro titles, - we talked about the basics of adding titles. - But let's quickly go over what lower third is and how you create one. - So what? - I brought up this interview clip and basically lower thirds go over interviews. - Or when someone is speaking on camera, - it basically gives more information about them. - Typically, - it has their name and then subtitle with there attribute something that they do something - that they are. - Ah, - so let's go head with an example, - and I'm going to create a new title in a caught coach G. - I call it lower third Coach G. - So I have this image up now I'm going to add text. - So I'm gonna his name. - We're just going to use for this. - Lower third is Coach g gonna make it black first, - and I'm going to change the flaunt. - Just gonna use something like let's use euro style is pretty cool. - We'll use future future at just, - uh, - show you what you can do with this. - Um, - so first they called a lower third because it typically appears in the lower third of the - screen. - Eso That's one thing to keep in mind. - Uh, - one thing you have to pay attention to is place when placing it is what is the background - and where will you be able to see it? - I place it right here. - This G kind of gets lost in this black bag in the background. - Um, - so if I wanted to be in the lower third area, - I would place it around here. - This title editor has these action safe margins right here. - You can see these two boxes, - these air title safe also called title safe Margins on. - This is for when you're making titles that for videos that are going to appear on TV or on - film, - some of the stuff gets cut off, - and so it's better to put it within these margins. - But for most of us were creating videos that are going to end up online and online, - we see the video all the way to the edge, - so you don't have to really worry about that too much. - So right now, - the, - uh, - the, - um text is black. - Let's see what we can do if it's white to make it appear so I like having white text. - I think it's really nice, - but of course it's hard to see here. - So let's try adding a shadow to see if that makes it stand out more. - And already it does. - I'm gonna make the shadow a little bit smaller green and drop the opacity. - See what this looks like. - Maybe the size of it all increase. - So there its a nice title that you can you can see well, - another idea to have to have white text. - But if you don't want to add a shadow, - is by adding a shape behind the text. - You have these shape tools over here so we can take this rectangle tool, - create uh, - and then just click and drag in here, - create a little box. - By now it's white. - But if we go ahead and change the color over here on the right of black, - then I want to right click and arrange and go. - I want to send backward, - and I can adjust this triangle so that I have this nice space for this title. - Oh, - something that I like to do is to drop opacity on these shapes so that it's not a solid a - complete. - Saad, - you can't see through. - And that looks nice. - Now I want to add this guy's lower third. - Um, - So, - Coach G, - I'm going to copy and paste this text, - Gonna put it down below, - and I'm gonna decrease the size. - It's always good to put make the subtitle. - You know, - maybe anywhere from 30 toe 50% smaller, - you or even smaller than that. - So that fits beneath this title. - Um, - And then, - since you know, - maybe this guy for this lower third, - I wouldn't even need a lower third or a subtitle, - because typically, - I have its first name. - And then down here, - I would say, - coach of some someone. - So maybe for this one all, - uh, - just say Compton, - California, - where he's from, - It's tohave a little bit of lower Third, - a little bit of a subtitle right there to give you an example. - Gonna create, - make this box a little bit bigger. - So there's equal equal. - Um, - I guess edges around equals space around all the text. - And there I have a nice little lower third. - Once I exit out of this, - I have my lower third right here. - You can drag it on top of my footage, - and I can just keep it there like so And then, - Ah, - put it on the whole clip or however long you have. - That is easy lower third, - super simple. - Nothing too fancy. - If you are interested in getting really fancy and create some professional lower thirds, - you should check out my amazing lower thirds class class where I teach you everything you - need to know to make some professional video titles in adobe after effects. - Eso check that class out as well. - But for now, - I think you give the picture of what a lower third is. - Next, - we're going to talk about adding motion to our titles. - Thanks a lot. - Have a great day, - and I'll see in the next lesson. 24. Intro Titles: - guys dinner. - Thanks for joining me in this lesson. - I just wanted to remind you Check out video school online dot com. - I have tons of great free content, - free articles, - free podcasts, - free videos, - just everything for you guys to help you make better videos. - Today we're gonna talk about intro titles and actually just talked about how you create a - title in Adobe Promote Premiere Pro. - So let's get straight into it. - So you click our new item button that we learned about way back When and Click Title. - I'm gonna name this title intro title and automatically creates it the size of your - composition, - which is what I want. - And the main thing I want you guys to think about when you're creating inter titles or any - tiles and at all is be different. - Don't just put a title in the middle because that's what everyone does, - and that's what is standard put to the side. - Put it on the bottom, - put it, - you know, - in the bottom third, - or just be different. - So came that in mine. - I'm going to click this type tool over here on the left, - and basically this whole thing is kind of like its own photo shop editor. - It's a complete little program in here for editing titles, - So click on the type tool, - click on your your video and then add your title. - So I'm gonna typing Coach G, - which is this guy's name. - It automatically shows Oppa's white, - so I want to go over, - adhere to color, - click on the white, - and I'm gonna make it black. - It also automatically makes it the font that is the first alphabetically. - And I have this a trip to hell unpack from a project that I worked on a while back. - And so the first thing I would want say is to pick up fonts and go appear to this flaunt - tat tablet, - Click the down arrow and scroll through your fonts and find one that you like. - I typically stick to a few fonds here and there. - But, - um, - like I said last time, - maybe you want a Serra far. - Maybe you want something a little bit more interesting. - Or maybe you want something that looks like a jersey for Coach G, - which is I is. - It would be something interesting to do with this title. - Um, - so I don't think I have any Jersey fonds, - but, - um, - I have some that are close. - So this Princeton one is a nice kind of sports looking one. - To increase the size of your font, - go to this text size and you can just click and drag to the right to increase the size of - the fund. - So this is kind of a cool title. - Cool font for this, - uh, - title this Kern ing option right here. - The A V this is spreads out the letters or each figure within your font. - So each ladder eat each symbol, - anything that's in your in your title, - it will spread it out or make it closer together. - And that's something that you might want to play around with. - If you have multiple, - um, - multiple rows, - you can play with this leading, - which will spread it apart vertically. - You could make it right justified, - left justified or center justified. - Using these options right here And over here, - there's Tom more options as well. - You can change the font over here. - You can, - um, - change the the with or the height of it. - You can change the size, - the aspect, - so if you want it to be stretched out or squish. - You can do that. - You can play with the leading turning and tracking here you condone. - You can make it, - uh, - slanted. - So there's a ton of different options for you over here and play with the opacity. - You can add a stroke by clicking the add stroke, - but in and you add an edge. - Change the color so you can see what looks like that as a stroke. - But I don't typically add strokes to my my fonts at all. - You can add a shadow. - And when I recommend when you're using us, - adding a shadow, - you play with these options because this shadow is really harsh. - I like a little bit more subtle of the shadow. - So I drop the opacity of 25. - I'll increase the size of 10 maybe decreased the spread to 15 or maybe even increase the - spread. - I forget exactly what I like. - That makes it a little bit more fuzzy and a little bit more natural to me. - So there we have it. - We're getting along or getting forward with our title. - Maybe we want to add a subtitle, - so I'm gonna go ahead and click the type tool again Click on my video and then all say, - a documentary film gonna click back onto my selection tool so that I can move it around and - also decrease the size And I don't think I want this part of the the title to be this fun. - I just wanted to be some sort of standard fun. - A cool thing you can do to scroll through your fonts and see it appear is just to click on - in the the tax up here and then it just use the arrow keys to move up or down. - And there it changes your you were text Teoh each of the fonts so you can really see what - it looks like without having to guess. - So I'm going to go up to something like Helvetica Neue. - Maybe I'm going to do a italics, - maybe a light italic. - I kind of like that. - I like using italics and, - uh, - non italics in the same titles. - So you can do that. - You can put it underneath, - you can put it on top. - You know, - maybe aligning it with just this word coach is something that you would want to dio Um, - so just it's all about playing around with your your your titles, - changing the alignment. - Maybe I want these to be down on the corner, - so that is a little bit lower like this. - That's kind of cool as well. - So there we have a nice title. - Maybe I don't want this period there. - I'm gonna change this and align it to the right. - It's always good to align your titles either centered or a wound to the right or to the - left. - This makes it look nice. - So say we're done with that title. - I'm going to exit out of here. - Then our intro title is saved over here in our project folder, - I'm going to Then click and drag it and drop it on to the second video layer. - Or third, - depending on what you want, - you can increase the time of it by just clicking and dragging the edge to keep it on their - longer. - And there we have a ruling nice title to move this. - It's a we don't want in the bottom third anymore. - You can go into here and edit it, - which I highly recommend doing it that way or, - if you want to quickly move it around You can click on it in your program viewer right here - . - Actually Move it around. - So say you want it up here. - Just easily move it around. - So that is how you create a title. - Guys, - are you create an intra title. - I like injured titles. - You know, - with the title of the movie, - maybe a subtitle or the filmmaker's name or you can do multiple titles. - You can have the title first and then the filmmaker's name or whatever other tiles you want - . - You can put these before the title. - Say you want this so you don't want us over. - This foot is you want over black at the start of your movie. - I'm going to copy and paste this title to create another version. - So you have to do it over here in this project file, - I'm gonna title it be I'm going to double click and see how it shows up over the coach G - image right here. - I'm gonna go at an excited that I'm gonna put my timer over black and then I'm going to - double click. - This is title. - So now it's over black. - Now you can see the title because it is black, - so I'm going to change it to White. - I'm gonna change my lower title. - Toe White. - Maybe I don't want this Princeton thought. - Maybe I want it to be the same family as the under title are the the documentary film title - , - and it's always good to use the same thought for all your titles. - I highly recommend men not using different funds for the same title, - but you can use different family, - different fonts within the family. - So maybe for this I want a bold maybe something, - you know, - small in the center, - something a little bit really subtle. - Maybe I want to make it small caps, - meaning the first letter is a large. - It's all capitalized, - But the first letters of each word are large, - Um, - and so you can play around with this idea, - maybe a documentary film. - You don't need it anymore. - Maybe you make it super small the middle. - So I just want this centered. - So doing something like this and just having that at the start of your film might look nice - or doing something a little nontraditional, - putting it on the bottom third or something like that, - just making a little bit different, - making it unique, - making it so that when people see it, - they think, - Oh, - wow, - that's interesting. - So now exit out of this, - I would move my footage over and I would add my intertidal be to the start of my movie. - And so it would go say, - I had my whole movie edited over here. - It would go from this nice little title under here into the start of my movie. - I I think you've heard enough of me talking about titles, - introduction titles. - So next time we're gonna be talking about lower Thirds, - but until then, - have a great day. 25. Adding Motion with Keyframes: - we owe you guys, - This is Philip Neri. - Let's talk about adding motion to our layers. - And specifically, - let's talk about adding motion to our lower third that we created last time. - I want to add I want this title to kind of pop in and then pop out. - So first thing first, - I want to set a couple key frames. - Um, - and we learned about key friends when we were doing audio. - So I hope you remember what a key frame is if not go back to the audio, - uh, - levelling course our lesson and rewatched that. - So I'm going to make sure my lower third is selected. - And then I'm going to go up to my motion tab. - Gonna make a little bit more space so I can see this key frame timeline up here. - And then where says position? - I'm going to click this stopwatch where it says toggle animation. - And you noticed, - my timer is is not at the very start of this this lower third, - because now I'm sending because I'm setting this time this key frame right here at the end - point of the motion right here. - Now, - I'm gonna go back in time and I'm going to actually move this position off of the screen by - clicking and dragging the X axis a little left. - So now, - across those two key frames, - you can see the motion of this title. - See how it appears like that. - Now I'm going to go a little bit further. - Enough time for someone to see the entire the entire clip. - I'm going to select this first, - the second key frame right here just by clicking it Copy and paste that can command C - command be. - I'm gonna go to the end. - It's like this 1st 1 copy and paste it and I have motion of this title exiting so you can - see it like this. - See how it comes in? - You can read it now it comes out. - So that's an easy way to add some motion to your text. - Maybe we want ah, - our text to move a little bit while it's on screen. - So maybe I'm gonna take these key frames off and we just wanted to be on the screen, - but moving a little bit or growing, - how about growing a little bit? - So I'm gonna create, - say, - scale key frame out of the start, - go to the end and increase the scale to 105 And so now, - across time, - this title is growing a little bit. - No, - I wouldn't do that for this title. - I don't think it looks that good, - But if you have B roll footage of photos or different layers or images or even video and - you want to add some motion or some growth to it, - you can set key frames for the scale, - position for the scale or position, - and this creates and night and awesome effect. - So I liked how this this We add emotion to this to pop in and pop out, - and that just makes it a little bit more professional. - It makes it a little bit more unique and eye catching. - And it's not just a plain title on on the screen, - so play around with motion. - Play around with that when you're adding photos and other things to your to your video as - well. - Thanks for watching. - If you have any questions, - please let me know. - Otherwise we'll see in the next lesson 26. Transitions: - guys, - let's talk about transitions. - So, - um, - it I'd say transitions are condom in conjunction with video effects. - There, - under this effects tab, - there's lots of them, - and transitions are basically away from a way to get from one video clip to another. - One of the main types of transition is a dissolve. - Ah, - cross dissolve is one of the most popular ones. - Let's check it out here, - like all effects, - you just click and drag and drop it to the edge of a A clip on. - You can increase the sup, - the timing of it, - the length of it by just clicking and dragging the edge or dragon into short in it. - So it crosses. - All will kind of blend the first image with the second image examines These videos aren't - rendering rendered fully eso. - That's why it's a little bit jumpy, - but you can see how the second image blends with the first image. - That's kind of a nice effect to use, - whether if you're going from an interview to be role or if you're if you're editing between - two clips to be role clips, - Um, - but definitely, - like, - uh, - it's it's a certain style across assault are certainly start. - And when I was starting editing, - I should add dissolves and fades to black is another one all the time. - So dip to black. - It dips to black and then it fades up, - Um, - and these air great for starting and ending your movies. - It's a good way to to transition from the blank screen to video these dips to black. - But dipping the black between all your clips is probably not a good idea because I've done - it. - And I realized that after a while that it's kind of, - Ah, - amateur. - And all of these other transitions can look a little bit funny to They're a little bit. - I just makes it look cheap or or amateur as well. - You got these page peels where part of the, - you know, - the image peels away. - Um, - but as you can see, - it's just it's just a little bit funny. - That's the only way I can put it. - Um, - but some of these other ones, - you know, - uh, - people do use, - especially for like in music videos, - thes thes wipes. - All right, - Wife's from left to right. - Something like that. - Um, - and you can affect change these, - um, - transitions by playing with them in the effects controls as well. - You can reverse it so that it goes the other way. - The wife goes from right to left rather than left to right. - And so, - with all these different transitions you can, - you can add, - you can customize them. - There's some three D motion ones, - and you can download MAWR transitions online. - So this one's kind of like a three D paged page turn or Cuba spin. - I guess, - um, - I'll probably look better if you're transitioning between two clips. - See, - now you have a A cube spin like that. - Hi. - So you have a ton of options for transitions? - I Tech tend to stay, - stick with cross dissolves and fades to black. - Um, - if you don't have any footage after a clip and you just add a standard crosses all it acts - as I fade to black because there's no clip for it to fade to like so it's like that. - Or you can of course you did. - The black Oregon dipped a white. - You can dip toe white, - and then maybe a nice thing to do when you're dipping toe white is create a new item color - . - Matt and make it white. - Call this white Matt, - You're going to put this down on our timeline. - I'm going to put all this footage, - raise it up onto another. - Ah, - another time, - Another layer. - I'm going to put this white mat underneath this transition so that when it dips toe white, - it stays white. - And maybe we can have some nice titles over white. - Why is very clean? - And there's a lot of people using white backgrounds in their video productions nowadays. - So play around with it, - play with your you're dissolves and transitions and let me know if you have any questions - until next time. - Have a great day. 27. Special Effects: - we owe you guys talk about some effects. - And Adobe Premiere Pro has a ton of cool effects that are already preset and ready to use - in underneath the video effects. - I'm just gonna talk about a few of them, - a few that you might be using, - and few that might come in handy for you in the future. - So you in your effects browser, - you can look at all these categories you have adjust which will, - you know, - do different things for your color, - blur and sharpen. - These are good. - I all I'm always using, - like this gouge in blur or the fast blur. - You just click and drag and drop it. - And then it always appears up here in your effects controls window. - And then you can change it with Theo. - The effects of with us, - the sliders up here for these blurs, - make sure you have repeat edge pixels, - that the edges don't blend into the background. - And I mean, - obviously I wouldn't make it like this. - Just tow, - watch it. - But sometimes it's cool toe. - Add a blur to something and then, - um, - put a title over it or something just adds a little bit of uniqueness to it. - A little bit of style. - So both the gouging blur and the fast blur are great to use. - For that, - some distort tools you can use, - like a mere function which will, - uh, - well, - near your your objects if you're looking for that sort of that sort of effect. - Um, - something. - It's kind of cool. - If you're you've probably seen this in some ads where, - uh, - you know, - some car commercials or something like that. - That's kind of a neat effect. - Um, - all you know, - all these I you know, - you really have to go through them and play with them yourself. - But, - uh, - so this your eyes, - you can see that it's bulging right here. - So depending on what your purpose is, - um, - you you might have an effect to use, - but that's the main key here is to use effects with a purpose. - Don't just add, - you know, - crazy styles to them just because use it because there's a reason. - So, - obviously, - this is kind of a cool style. - This mosaic, - it's kind of like eight bit old school video game ah, - style, - But don't use it just for fun. - Uh, - you know, - maybe you're making a music video or something like that, - and you want to make it look super cool or just stylized with lots of effects. - But if you're just making a nice video, - don't just throw on effects just because they look good. - Um, - this transfer under transformed there's a lot of good ones right here or is on till flip. - It will flip it horizontally, - basically nearing mirroring it, - uh, - or vertical will flip it upside down, - like so. - So you can do a lot of cool stuff like that. - You can crop. - Um, - you can crop your footage. - This is a good one. - You can change, - you know, - crop a certain amount of percentage. - You do split screens this way. - Maybe you maybe you want something like this. - Um, - and then you want your coach speaking on the right side and your picture pitching on left - side so we can move these around just by clicking and dragging these images on the on this - viewer. - So something like that might be kind of cool. - Um, - that's kind of cool, - but again, - just play around with these, - but I don't go overboard with effects. - I think it's unprofessional when videos have, - like some a ton of effects, - cause a lot of them look kind of cheesy. - Um, - in reality. - So the ones you know that we talked about before with color correction, - um, - are great to use because it's basically creating a a professional style or a look to your - video with some of these other ones, - like the glows and all that stuff. - It really has to have a good purpose to use them. - So those are all effects. - Play around with them. - I'm not going to spend any more time going through all of them. - But if you have any questions about specific ones or how to use them properly, - please let me know. - Have a great day and I'll see in the next lesson. 28. Adding a Beautiful Vignette: - Hey, - what's up? - This is Philip Inner back with video school online dot com for another tutorial today. - I want to show you how to create a beautiful of in yet in adobe Premiere Pro. - So Adobe Premiere Pro doesn't have a built in vignette effect like after effects, - and it doesn't give you the option to easily create a layer been yet, - But it does have one option called circle that I'm gonna teach you how to use it to make a - vignette. - So in your effects, - you can just type in circle. - It's under the video effects and generate. - You're just going to actually lay this on top of your video. - I'm using an image right now, - but you can use, - you know, - you do it on your video or whatever you have, - so it creates this white circle. - First, - we're going to make this circle black by selecting the color and making it black. - Then we're going to invert by clicking this invert circle button. - But now you still can't see anything because the blending mode is none. - And so that's all black. - We want to turn this to multiply. - Now we have this little circle right here, - and this is the beginnings of RVing. - Yet this radius feature a year will increase the size of our circle. - So we're going to increase the size of a circle to about depending on the size of your - image. - You know, - for me, - it's about 7 50 until you know, - the edge of the circle is around the edge of the image. - We want to feather this out, - So click down this drop down feather menu and increase the feather outer edge. - So we're gonna keep doing that until you get a nice then yet. - And this is a very, - very nice, - easy off option. - Excuse me to create a good been. - Yet you can decrease the opacity if you don't want it to be so extreme. - But by clicking this little affects toggle button. - You can see how that adds a lot of, - you know, - quality, - and it makes your image more dynamic. - It direction. - You're the viewer's eye to the center of the screen, - and it just adds no. - A little bit of, - you know, - interesting thing is something interesting to your video, - and Vignette is not for everyone is not for all video types, - but it's an option. - Ah, - to you know, - increase the quality of your video quite easily. - That is the circle effect. - That is how you create a beautiful been yet in adobe Premiere Pro. - Thanks for watching. - Check out video school online dot com for more great tips and tricks, - right? 29. The Color Key: - Hello, - everyone. - Welcome to another chapter in green screen editing Today we are going to be going over - Adobe premiere and how to green screen used green screen footage with Adobe Premiere. - So today for this chapter, - the topics like the previous chapter if you watch the final cut pro seven chapter, - we're gonna be talking about King the green. - So how, - what, - what effects and filters, - we can use an adobe premiere. - Two. - Key, - the green. - How using cropping can help you improve your key image. - Adding backgrounds, - of course, - and what types of backgrounds we can use and how to do that on, - of course, - correcting the edges of your green screen key and then color correcting and using color - correction to improve your image in the overall look of your green screen. - So let's get right into it. - And first, - um, - we're just gonna show you Adobe premiere, - so hopefully you're a little bit familiar with this program. - But if not, - we have you know your project files. - Over here in the middle is your your your viewer, - where you can preview clips and your effects controls where you will be spending a lot of - time in this class ongoing of your effects and tweaking those your viewer over here of your - final image of your movie. - And then down here are is your timeline where you actually police your footage and over - here on the left is where you can find your effects. - So I've already built this project out a little bit. - I've added my video clips and some images that I found online that we're gonna be using for - background images for the clips. - I found them on archive dot org's, - which is a great site where you can download free to use public domain, - green screen images or or lots of different types of video and images. - And so I found a couple good ones, - one of an interview sort of setting, - and then one of a cute dog that we're gonna be using mostly for this course. - So let's go ahead and bring some of this video clip down onto our timeline. - So right here I have about four seconds of our dog selected, - and we're gonna put him down on the timeline. - Then, - um, - for this lesson, - we're gonna basically be going over using the color key and then over the next three - lessons, - we're gonna go into more detail about all the rest of the topics. - And so down here in our effects browser. - If if you don't see this effects brother, - you can goto windows and make sure that effects is selected up here in the top menu and - then go your effects and you can either find different, - keep different effects by going to video effects and selecting key. - So there's a bunch of keys there. - Or a great thing about Adobe Premiere compared to final cut is that you can actually just - search for effects. - So for this first effect, - we're gonna be using the color key. - So just typing color key and it pops right up and go ahead and add that to our video clip, - then to effect to control this, - you go up to this viewer window where we have our effects controls. - So basically what this effect does, - it will allow you to take out a certain color, - any color from your video footage, - so it doesn't have to be green or it doesn't have to be blue. - It could be any color for this clip. - We can take out this pink tag or you know, - the brown for or like, - we want to do it. - We can take out the green screen that is behind the dog. - So what we do is click this selector tool right here and then go over to the clip itself. - We want to select a greening, - Um, - and it's maybe hard for you to tell. - But if you have your own green screen footage, - usually there's some shadows, - or that the color of the green varies across the background, - and what you should do is click select the darkest or a darker version of the green on your - screen. - So up here you can tell us very bright, - and down here it's a little bit darker. - So we're gonna select this green down here. - And the reason that I suggest selecting a darker green is because for some reason, - the different effects find it easier to keep out the brighter greens. - Um, - so vice selecting the darker green. - You're specifically telling the program that those are that's the color you want to select - , - and then, - by adjusting the brighter greens are automatically going to be taken out. - And so, - um, - and another reason is that because the darker greens are more similar to the rest of the - colors of your subject. - Just because it's a darker tone and hue will be more similar to the Browns. - Um, - it's it's better to specifically pick that color so that the editing, - the filter that Clarky filter knows how to differentiate on between the dark's, - the dark green and the dark brown. - Whereas if you click the rider greens and then you try to change the color tolerance to get - rid of these darker greens, - it may. - It may actually take out some of these darker browns. - Well, - that's getting really advanced. - And all you need to know is select your green and select one of the like, - some of the darker green, - usually at the bottom around your subject. - And then you're gonna go over to this color tolerance wheel, - um, - are option, - and you're gonna just crank it up and keep going until you have a pretty good Keith. - And so this does a really good job already at taking out the green. - As you can tell. - The more I do it, - it starts taking out colors similar to it, - so it takes out this bluish color it's more of an aqua. - And then, - really, - if you keep going the tolerance it'll take out everything that's at all similar. - So what we want to do is take it up, - going to nowhere. - Everything in the middle of your subject in this area over here is still visible. - So right there you have it. - But we still have this green edge around the dog. - And so to get rid of that, - there are two options that worked hand in hand. - The edge then will basically increase or decrease the edge around the key to subject. - So we're going to decrease it by sending it a little bit. - Go up to three. - You can you can really go up as you know, - pretty high. - And then we want to add the edge feather which will make this look a little bit more - natural, - a little better. - And so that is getting to be a pretty good key. - So this is the color key, - and that's it. - For this first lesson on going forward, - we're gonna try out the ultra key, - which is I feel the best way to key out the green in adobe premiere and then really - tweaking the green screen adding backgrounds and the rest of the whole green screen picture - will be in future lessons. - So thank you for watching. - And if you have any questions or comments, - please message me on you to me. - And aside from that, - keep practicing. - I hope you are following along while we're while I'm teaching you this. - And if you ever need toe, - you know, - uh, - rewind watches service up again. - Please feel free to do that. - And thanks for watching. - And I'll see you for next lesson. 30. The Ultra Key: - Hello And this is Philip dinner, - and I'm back with another lesson for green screen editing. - This is in the Adobe premiere chapter, - and this is a lesson to today. - We're gonna be going over another way, - another effect that you can use for King out of the green before we looked at the color key - . - And today we're gonna go look at the culture key, - which is a better way to keep your green. - And whereas the color key, - you know, - it's built for a king out different colors, - the ultra key is really met for kicking up debris. - And so it's a lot more powerful, - and there's a lot more ways to tweak it and finesse it. - Look, - look really good. - And as you can see here in the color key, - we still have a little bit of green around it, - and the older he is really going to get rid of any of that green. - So we're gonna bring down another the same clip of our dog so that we have a new fresh - start and just go ahead and type ultra into your effects search window and bring up the old - turkey and just toss it onto your clip. - Now you have this selected you can go up to the effects control you can weaken, - start tweaking our ultra key. - And so what were The first thing we want to do is key. - Choose the key color. - So again, - go ahead and just click. - Select a green color around the pooch. - And already it does. - Ah, - really good job is a little bit of stuff that we're gonna have to work to get rid of, - but it's pretty much almost, - you know, - almost done. - Um, - So what you want to do then, - is just go to the mat generation drop down menu, - and, - you know, - you just want to play around with these. - Uh, - you can tell that some of these colors that are still green are from the highlights, - and some are from the shadows down here. - And so you just want to bring down the highlights. - I'm gonna bring him up to really show you what It's king out. - And so those are the highlights on Just bring it down And those are all gone. - The shadows, - those air, - the darker greens on. - And so I'm just gonna bring those down. - But as I bring those down. - You can tell that some of the dogs darker hair in the middle is being keyed as out as well - . - So we have to be careful not to go too far. - So it's about their and you don't want to go past this because it's starting to take out - some of the colors within within the dog. - So what we can do is go down to this pedestal, - which is a great way for, - uh, - really take out specific leave the green color. - And so you just increase that and that's really taking out most of it, - um, - so increased that. - And then we can try toe bring down the shadows again to make this dark green on the side - disappear. - And so that's that's looking pretty good. - But it's not perfect yet, - so we'll see what we can do with the mat cleanup. - So we're gonna choke it a little bit right here. - So that's basically increasing and decreasing the edge thin. - We're gonna soften a little bit, - so that's looking pretty good. - Maybe a little bit too soft on increase the contrast. - So it's really getting this helps with fine tuning the edges of your subject. - Last looking pretty good. - Um, - but let's rewind, - and I'm gonna show you uneven, - easier way to make this look just as good. - So take off the ultra key on. - We're just gonna start over at the ultra key Selector Color. - Select one, - The Darks. - You know, - the dark start down here is we're going to select those, - um, - and then in the setting mode, - we have these different relax, - aggressive or custom. - If you're tweaking these numbers on here, - it's gonna automatically be custom. - But we're just gonna select aggressive and it basically does everything for us. - It's it's got rid of all the green. - It's pretty much a perfect key. - All the colors within the dog are still there. - The darks and lights and the blues are still there. - And we didn't even have to touch these colors over here. - That's a really great way to easily key out, - um, - your your subjects. - So I know I can trick you, - and we went a long way. - But sometimes you have to go a long way to learn. - Then you get the quick, - easy tips that will help you in the long run will make everything go faster. - so again, - ultra key selector color switched to aggressive and pretty much have a perfect key. - Thank you for watching. - We're gonna go forward in the next lessons for into using cropping to help out your your - king using color correction and adding backgrounds and more. - So thank you for watching this lesson. - I hope you learned all about the ultra key filter. - And if you have any questions, - message me on you to me and if not, - enjoy and have a great day. 31. Cropping for Keying: - Hello and welcome back to another lesson in green screen editing. - Again, - this is going further into Adobe Premiere Pro on. - Where is the premiere pro chapter? - Last couple lessons We learned the different tiers you can use when you're editing out - green screen footage. - And today we're gonna be talking about how using cropping can help you when you're editing - and keep trying to get the perfect key. - And so I'm gonna go ahead. - And for an example, - I'm gonna bring down a new dog. - Bring it down to the timeline. - You know, - say you're doing Ah, - quick job. - You wanna You just are in a rush. - You add your ultra key and you selector key. - You don't really pay attention to where you're selecting your keys. - You select some brights and then you go down to Matt Generation and you're trying to, - uh, - make this the perfect key. - And it's just not working. - We still have some, - you know, - noise down here in the bottom left. - Because if you try to take the shadows, - we start taking out some of the dogs. - You know, - his darker hair. - So we can't do that. - Um, - so we still have these like shadows down here of the green screen that are left over. - And so the best we can do, - uh, - with quickly doing this is to get it about like this. - We got some shadows down here in the bottom, - left and in the bottom, - right. - So an easy way to get rid of these is to crop the map. - And so what you do, - go down to your effects tab, - search for crop, - add it to your your if your video, - and then just increase the left. - It's a crop out that that that noise that is in the bottom left and then do the same for - the bottom. - Right there you have a pretty good. - I mean, - it's a perfect key of this dog, - and instead of having to worry about the shadows that are in the bottom corners, - you're able to focus about the green screen that is around the dog. - Um, - and you have a perfect key now, - and even better way to do this. - And what I suggest you doing whenever you're keying something is to actually crop first, - and so what you should do is you can either use the crop future or there's a couple other - options for getting, - um or, - uh, - finessed crop with more options of your video clip. - We're gonna go down to video effects, - and we're gonna go down to Key. - And we have these different garbage mats, - and we have a four point in a eight point we're gonna add wanted to our club just to show - what it is. - Um, - so you see that I was added up here into our effects controls, - like clicking this symbol right here. - We are able to view it, - um, - on the screen and you can see the different corners, - all the bird taxes and the the points of this effect. - So it has eight points, - three along the top, - three along the bottom, - and then one on the side of news middle. - And this gives you a great way to crop your image so you can just click these, - drag him in. - You have a really good, - nice way to crop your image, - especially using the eight point Matt is good for, - um, - for if you have, - you know, - someone that is using their arms or something that's not sitting still, - because then you can really crop around the image of your subject. - Luckily, - your dog is just sitting still in the middle. - So he's a good dog. - And, - you know, - I was just going to stay within this garbage matte that we have built out right now. - Um, - so again, - you can see view, - defects and take it off. - So what this basically does and means for us is that when we add our green screen filter - now all the filter has to do is key out. - This green around here doesn't have to worry about any of the green that was previously - around our dog, - and that's way better. - And we'll give you a better key because who knows? - Like we saw before. - There's shadows down here, - shadows down here. - We don't even want to worry about those. - So you add your old turkey, - select your selector green. - Now you only have this screen that worry about and as easy as that. - It's a perfect he. - We can switch this to aggressive to make sure that it is the best that it can be. - And there you have it. - It's a perfect key, - and you're gonna run into this a lot. - This is in the best video clip to use for an example for how propping can assist you in - green screen editing, - but you'll find if you're no. - If you're using your homemade lights in front of a homemade green screen, - that there are gonna be wrinkles and or light stands in the middle of your frame or - something that you know don't want in your video screen and cropping is a great way, - Teoh. - Get rid of those without having to worry about the green screen too much. - That was it for this lesson on propping. - Next, - we're gonna be going into actually adding a background and bring this foot toe life. - So thank you for watching. - If you have any questions or comments, - just message me on you to meet, - please rate the course of your enjoying So far and all. - I look forward to seeing you in the next lesson. - Thanks a lot. - Have a great day 32. Adding A Background: - Hello and welcome to another lesson in green screen editing. - This is the Adobe Premiere Pro chapter. - And today we're gonna be going over adding backgrounds to your green screen footage where - we already learned how to key out the green. - How to fix your edges and make sure it looks perfect using cropping to make it look look - good. - And now we're actually going to be getting into actually building your video and adding - cool backgrounds. - And so, - for this image of our dog, - we're just gonna, - you know, - put an image that I think fits. - Um, - and that is, - of a backyard eso download this image of some grass I'm going to bring down onto the - timeline and I'm going to put it underneath our dog underneath like that. - We have our dogs sitting on grass, - except now we have to edit the background so that it looks good. - And so under the motion tab for under effects control for this clip, - we can edit the scale, - position and lots of things to make it look good. - So we're gonna increase the scale so it covers the entire background and I want to bring it - down so that it looks like your dog is actually sitting on the grass so that it looks good - . - Of course we're using an image which is is nice for now, - Um, - but when you actually play this clip, - you can tell that the backgrounds not moving at all and our dog and foreground is sniffing - around, - moving his head, - wagging his tail, - and so it looks kind of awkward. - So what I suggest doing is whenever you're shooting green screen video and you wanna have a - background that looks dynamic and matches the foreground, - definitely go out and shoot video, - even if it's the same exact shot, - the same exact angle. - It would be better if this background was moving slightly. - You know, - even though it's hard to tell when you're taking a photo and you're looking out there, - you don't think anything's moving. - You will be able to notice if it's video versus a still image. - The grass will move a little bit with the wind. - Lighting may change slightly if the clouds are moving etcetera, - and so that would really make it look like this dog is actually sitting in this in this - grass. - And this is pretty good for just throwing on this image right now. - One thing you want to be careful of two is, - you know, - having the right perspective for your background. - For example, - I have this other backyard image, - and I was searching for one. - You know, - just searching through group will define a good background image, - and I found this one that I thought would look fine. - So I added the it is to our timeline, - increase the scale so it, - you know, - covers the background. - And I tried editing this to make it look good, - but you can tell that our dog looks like a giant right now. - His is bigger than the swing set in the background. - I was taller than this fence. - And really, - there's not much you can do to make it look better. - This might make it look a little bit better, - but the reason it looks awkward is because the angle of this photograph is different than - the angle of the video of our dog that photograph the angles taken from probably about the - height of a human. - And so you're really looking down at this backyard, - whereas the dog is kind of straight on, - so the angle is coming from maybe a foot or two off the ground. - And so this image of the grass behind is really a better image to add for your background, - because it's from that low angle. - Of course, - you don't need to try to put your dog in your backyard and while editing this, - because it could have just taken your dog outside and shot him. - But it does give you control to do fun things like putting your dog on the moon or - underwater or anywhere. - And so that's why green screen is so fun. - And it gives you a lot of control because you can create worlds that you don't have access - to when you're shooting a movie. - So it's pretty cool what you can do with green screen. - And, - uh, - yeah, - so this is Those are just some tips for adding backgrounds again, - Just make sure that when you're adding background, - adding, - uh, - actual moving video behind will make it look more realistic now and making sure the angle - of the background and the sizing of the background matches your foreground. - Of course you can. - You can do something completely different, - like adding just a color behind our dogs. - So to do that in the w premiering Go down to this new item, - it looks like a post it note down here in this menu. - Click that and then add color. - Matt say OK, - that is just saying that it's the right size and we're going to pick. - Well, - let's put Pick this. - I mean, - like a magenta color match. - His leash, - his or her leash. - Just call this magenta at it underneath their dog when that looks pretty fun. - And that's a really cool Um, - you know, - it's a lot of fun, - too. - Change up the backgrounds at different textures to it. - 11 way to you know, - you can add it, - vignettes to it to make it look really good on. - So, - yeah, - it's just up to you for what you want to add in the background. - And that's why green screen is so cool. - So that's how you had a background. - I hope you enjoy this lesson and learned a lot. - Hope you're following along and actually practicing while we're doing this. - I encourage you to do that and after this lesson to go shoot your own green screen video or - practice with the video that I provided and add your own background to make it look cool. - Anyways, - next lesson we're gonna be going over color correction and how that can enhance your video - to make it look even more realistic. - Thank you for watching this lesson. - If you have any questions or comments, - please message me on you to me. - I'll get back to us in this possible Thanks for watching and have a great day. 33. Color Correction and Green Screen: - hello and welcome to another lesson in green screen editing. - This is the Adobe premiere chapter, - and we're getting down to the wire with last few lessons in this chapter. - And today we're gonna talk about color correction, - one of the final techniques that you can use to enhance your footage and make it look more - realistic with the background. - So we have Here are timeline that we've been working on, - and I want to bring us back to the image of our dog sitting on the grass. - And as you can see, - um, - it's really you know, - it might be tough to see, - but the grass background it has this, - you know, - yellowish orange. - Look, - it's just a little bit warmer. - And that's because it was out in the sun, - and the camera settings, - you know, - made it look like it was, - you know, - warm and sunny outside the shot of this dog. - It's a little bit cooler. - The colors aren't as vibrant as the background. - And to really make the subject match the background we have to color. - Correct. - There's a couple ways to do this in Premiere Pro this ultra key filter. - It has a color correction addition to it, - so you can go down here and increase the saturation, - and doing something like that can automatically make it look better already. - But to have a um, - better, - more intuitive option with more control is by using the color crap. - One of the color corrector filters in under our video effects. - So down here there's a lot of different cool effects. - And under color correction, - there's a few as well when the best ones and easiest wants to use. - That, - I suggest, - is fast color corrector, - so we can just take that drop that onto our our dog there, - and we want to make him a little bit warmer. - So we just take this color wheel here for, - for example, - and bring make it a little bit warmer. - You just click the center and drag it over to in between the reds and the yellow, - so that's a little bit warmer. - You can, - you know, - change the effect here with these different options on here to make it really warm. - And as you can tell, - um, - you don't want to make it to warm cause. - Then the dog will look even more yellow than background. - That won't look natural, - but you want to be somewhere in the middle that maybe we want to increase the saturation. - Zor has the saturation option. - Frieze that to about 1 26 or so. - You can see this effect on work by clicking and tumbling this effects, - but in here, - on and off, - take it off to get on to get off. - Take it on Really telling now that before you added this color correction, - dog really does look a little bit cooler on the color tone is more blue and it's a little - bit colder and the saturation isn't as high, - adding, - it makes it look a lot better and makes it look more natural, - like the dog is actually sitting in this grass with the sun beating down on it. - That's a great way to make all of your your video footage and your green screen footage - match match better. - Of course, - you can do the opposite if you want to color, - correct the background instead, - color color. - Correcting our dog. - We could have added this effect to the background. - We'll go ahead and do that right now just to show you how that works. - Color correct the background so the background is a little bit too yellow, - so we want to make it even more blue. - So just like we did with the dog, - make this color correction a little bit more blue. - Maybe de saturate a little bit. - There we have a good image of the dog and the background. - Of course, - it depends on what the mood of your video is if you want it to be happy. - Sunny, - you want to have more warm colors. - Yellow tones. - If you wanted to be a little bit more dreary, - your cold or dark, - you can Ads are more blues, - or it's just the preference of yours if you like warmer tones or cooler tones. - So that's a great way to really make your images match and make your green screen editing - look just like regular ending. - Eso. - That's it for this lesson, - of course. - Keep practicing this green screen editing. - Play with color correction. - Add some different backgrounds. - Put your dog no on in a snow patch and then make you color. - Correct him to make him his colors a lot bluer, - a lot, - a lot colder and do things like that, - just a practice of color correction. - So thanks for watching. - If you have any questions or comments, - as always, - message me at you to me, - on you to me dot com, - and I'll get back to you as soon as possible. - Next lesson. - We're gonna be doing a rap video for Adobe Premiere, - where we're gonna be taken a new clip, - video interview clip and going to be making it look really cool. - So look forward to that, - and I'll see you next lesson. - Thanks for watching. 34. Green Screen Wrap Up: - Hello and welcome to green screen editing. - This is the final lesson in the Adobe premiere chapter. - We're gonna do a wrap up of everything we've learned so far and create a great looking - video. - Right now what we're gonna do is edit this new clip that we downloaded. - I gave you the the the euro. - Well, - that you can download it at mark. - I've dot com. - So this guy talking in front of a green screen. - So it'll be a good example to use because I think a lot of you will be using green screen - for a similar, - uh, - type of video of someone you know talking in front of a green screen, - whether it's an interview or it's, - ah, - business video, - talking about your product or whatever. - And so this is a good example for us today, - so I'm just gonna select a little bit this video clip to use, - bring it down to our timeline and remember the first thing I said to do when you're editing - green screen is to crop it as much as you can or add a mat to it. - So I'm going to add are eight point garbage matte. - So I'm going to search into our effects. - Been for eight point garbage, - matte. - There it is. - And then just add it on top of our video. - Go up here to our effects controls panel. - And then, - like I said before, - you can either edit it numerically by editing these numbers for all the different points or - visually by clicking this icon right here. - That brings up all the different points of the garbage matte that we can edit that easily - allows us to create a Mac around our character here, - just like this. - We're going, - Teoh, - decrease the amount of green screen that we are going to have to edit. - And so this is a good example for using this map because our subject isn't moving around a - lot. - But you just have to be careful that he doesn't move out in front outside of this Matt - Range say if he was using his hands a lot when he's talking, - he might bring his hands up around here and his hands will be cut off. - So you have to be careful when you're doing this to make sure he doesn't do that. - But are subjects of standing pretty still. - So it's good. - Then once we do that, - we're gonna add the ultra key effect. - Our favorite key Earth in Adobe Premiere Pro. - Go in and add that to our clip. - Then select the green. - Select something around our subject, - something a little bit darker. - You can tell that appear. - It's writer, - and then on this side it's a little bit darker, - so select one colors that's a little bit darker. - And we can either go through Matt Generation and clean up to tweak these effect this effect - . - Or we can easily just go ahead and change its setting. - Too aggressive. - That automatically makes our key practically perfect. - And there you have it. - There is a key. - We've got a nice, - uh, - image with no background, - and then it's there for us to edit as we will. - One thing I want to do is to at least start off, - make our subject in the middle in center of our video screen. - I'm going to increase the size in this under this motion tab here in the video effects - control panel. - You can do that. - It is the size and then move it around, - or you can just click here on the viewer and move our subject around there he is in the - middle. - The 1st 7 background that I want to check out and see if it looks good is to add a plain - white background. - It's something that is really popular now in just how to videos and product demonstrations - . - If you watch any Apple commercials or Apple product demonstrations on their website, - have a nice cleaning white background behind their their spokesperson. - And so go down here and we're gonna add a color Matt. - So click color Matt and a white one right there. - I'm gonna call it white, - and then we can just bring it underneath our video clip there and there you have a nice, - clean white background. - Well, - it's purpose. - It's completely white. - There's no kind of effect to it, - so it's nice and clean. - But one thing I want to do to make it a little bit more dynamic is to actually create sort - of a vignette, - look to it so that it focuses your eyes into the middle of the video screen. - And so to do that in total we premiere, - there is is there is not a vignette effect, - but there is something called circles, - and basically it's either to generate image of a circle or you can create cool vignette - lift light with it. - So right here the circle was added but small behind our subjects that were going to - increase the size increase the radius of it right here. - So increase that up to about 600. - We're just gonna play with it the edge feather of the feather. - So we want a feather, - the outer edge so that it looks like I've been yet, - basically, - just crank it up all the way until you have a nice been yet that's looking pretty good. - But maybe it's a little bit too much dark around the edges. - I don't really like that. - So what I'm gonna do is, - instead of increasing just the radius, - you can also just increase the size of our white. - So that gives you a nice effect where your eyes are automatically drawn into the center of - the video, - the black from the been, - yet it just makes the center image pop. - One thing we want to do to this image is correct. - The color a little bit. - He's looking a little pale, - and his white suit is blending in with the background, - So we want to add some color. - So we wanna add the fast color corrector to go ahead and find that in your effects bin and - add that to our video. - We're just gonna add a little bit of color to him, - so make it a little bit warmer. - Drag this center senator icon in the middle of the color wheel over to the reds and oranges - . - Maybe add a little bit of saturation. - It's looking a little bit too orange now, - so I'm gonna bring down this this orange. - And another way to make your image pop is to add some contrast. - So down here in the levels in the input and output levels, - what we can do is by bringing this triangle down here down and increasing this blacks. - What it's doing is it's making the blacks blacker and the whites whiter, - which is adding contrast, - which also adds saturation. - So once you're when you're adding contrast to video clip, - your actually adding contrast to so you may have to go back to the saturation, - uh, - change edit that you made and decrease that a little bit. - So it's not too much, - but that's looking a lot better. - You can see you can toggle it on and off with this effects icon right here again. - You can see that lapse looking pretty good. - His whites are a little bit blown out down here, - which is a cool effect if you like it. - If not you Kenbrell back this the whites up here to the top 2 55 in the input levels. - That's looking pretty cool. - That's that's a nice, - nice video right there. - And that's clean, - professional looking. - If you want something different, - though, - let's try adding something cooler. - Temic. - It looks maybe a little bit more hip, - a little bit more modern, - and so you can play with different textures in different colors. - What I've done is I just went on. - Google and I searched for some images. - Search through images for different textures, - and I do this lot when I'm adding backgrounds to green screen footage, - for example, - I have this old map texture. - It's a really cool texture of that. - It just adds a little bit to the background and well, - that is. - I don't I think that's looking to gay because it looks like he's standing in the middle of - , - ah, - map blob. - We can add another pattern to it and then play with the layering options to make it look - really cool. - So I added this, - uh, - this pattern, - effect texture. - I'm gonna decrease the scale that's looking cool already. - But I want I want to blend the old map texture, - which you can see here with this this texture that I just added of the stripes Cool way to - do that is by going under the opacity, - uh, - effect drop down menu under the video effects for the top layer, - which is the stripes stripes layer and go to blend mode and then just play around and see - what these different modes I look like, - so dark and dark in the blue image but also have shows some of the map texture behind - through. - I really like, - um, - different modes like overlay, - which adds a lot of contrasts and makes it look cool. - A soft light will be a little bit less jarring, - a little less contrast, - even still look cool. - Eso you can play around with those and come up with a cool background. - What? - You know, - maybe you wanna rotate this image of the stripes a little bit to give it a cool effect. - Something like that. - Now, - now we're talking. - Looks like a cool video that could be on, - you know, - MTV or a new online program, - something really cool. - So those were just different types of background so that you can use. - Of course, - you can add background, - a background image of something out in the real world. - Teoh make him look like he's talking out by the ocean or wherever. - But what's so great about green screens? - You can add the school backgrounds like this to make a really clean and professional look. - Make it look really poppy and cool whatever you want. - So that is basically green screen editing in Adobe Premiere, - Um, - we have gone over the different color keys filters that you can add two key out the green. - We have gone over cropping and how that can't help you create a better key gone over. - Adding background images and footage to your video, - we talked about how color correction can enhance your video and make the subject in the - background match and make it look like a real in real video. - And then we just did this great overview rapid video that I think has helped you a lot. - So thank you for watching. - If you have any questions, - please email me or message me at you to me dot com. - If you want to go ahead further, - we're gonna be going into after effects next, - which is going to be a little bit more advanced than this. - And I'm also going to teach you how to use after effects and Adobe Premiere at the same - time. - And how you can use those two programs together when you're using green screen. - So thank you again for watching. - I hope you enjoy this class and I'll see you next time. 35. Exporting and Uploading to YouTube: - Hey, - YouTube, - this is Philip Inner with video school online dot com. - I'm here with a quick tutorial on how to export your videos from Adobe Premiere Pro to - YouTube. - So with the best export settings and all that jazz is for how to do that so quickly you go - in your project. - I made this little Thank you. - What am I thankful for? - Video for my girlfriend for Thanksgiving is really nice. - So if you like that idea, - use it so to export. - Once you're done editing, - you just go up to file export media. - Or you can press command E that you're on a Mac quickly. - You can, - uh, - change your name by clicking this output name, - and you could rename and then set where you want to save it to format format. - YouTube loves H 264 You can open all these different types up here, - but we want we want to use, - um h 264 That's what you to blacks. - Make sure export video and export audio is checked off down here with the frame within the - frame height. - If you shot 1920 p. - Um, - then you can change the frame with and frame height to 1920 by 10 80 I shot 12 80 by 7 20 - So both are HD. - One is just a little bit larger frame size for the frame rate. - YouTube likes 30 and all these settings can be found on the YouTube slash Google guidelines - on their website. - I brought it up here. - Um, - you just type into the sport that people dot com for him. - What the If you want your YouTube settings and it says compression type H 264 frame rate, - 30 is preferred but like these other ones are accepted. - So the data re and all this other stuff you want to just set as automatic for within - Premiere Pro with this bit rate encoding vi br one pass will be quicker and a little bit - lower. - Quality and Phoebe are to pass. - Will be it will take a lot slower because it actually goes through the whole movie twice. - But that also increases the quality in regards to the color qualities and is the image - sharpness. - Um, - it won't really increase the size of your video. - It'll just take longer, - so if you're in a rush, - you can do V B R one passed or V b R to pass for this target bit rate. - Um, - this is where you can, - you know, - if you rash it up to, - uh, - really high. - Then again, - the size of your file will be larger, - and the quality will be higher. - But, - you know, - you can just set it around 15 or so. - That's where I like to set it and then lower the target to maybe 12. - So the maximum is around 15. - Then, - um, - make sure your audio is set to a cease A. - See. - The Kodak right here is set to a a C 44.1 kilohertz equality high, - and that's about it. - So from there you just go to export export and only be great high quality video for you - tube. - So I hope you like this video and you learned a lot. - Head over to video school online dot com and subscribe for more tips. - And to get some great free resource is and deals for, - um, - my online courses and everything else that comes along with video school online dot com. - Have you enjoyed watching? - And I will see you next time 36.
