1. Premiere Pro Masterclass - Welcom: Hello and welcome to this fully comprehensive Adobe Premiere Pro editing course, where I'm going to be teaching you how to become a great editor in Premiere Pro. Now if you know me, you'll see that on YouTube or I've got 50000 subscribers and I've been editing in Premiere Pro 45 plus years. I've worked with brands like HP, uni days, skillshare, many, many brands on creating high-quality videos. And ultimately, to be a YouTuber part time, you have to have a very efficient editing process. So my process is also very efficient. Now, I'm known as a bit of a whiz kid when it comes to editing in Premiere Pro. And today I'm gonna be taking you through exactly how to edit a video. Because when you first open Premiere Pro, if you're transitioning from old software to a new software, well, you're on Premiere Pro for the first time with no prior video editing experience. It can seem incredibly complicated and daunting, especially the timeline. But I promise you by the end of this class, you will have a full understanding of Adobe Premiere Pro. Today I'm gonna be taking you through everything from opening in the software and adding your footage to editing. Now for the very first time, adding motion graphics to make your video look very snazzy, color grading, sorting out the audio, exporting. And this finally leads me on to why you should watch my class because there's thousands of classes and Premier Pro. Now I've got a track record of working with brands consistently because they like my high-quality production value, which mostly comes from the edit. I've got a track record of being successful on YouTube. And I think that when you're starting out and Premier Pro, you want to learn from somebody who's been in your position before. I've been in your position. And so I think by watching this course, you're making a very good investment of your next two hours. I've got my Premier Pro shirt on. Let's jump into it. 2. Adobe Premiere Pro Layout Explained: So welcome to class 1. Now when you very first open Adobe Premiere Pro for the first time, you'll get this screen right here. And now to get started, you want to select New Project. And then just tied to the project, whatever you wanna call it, let's say Skillshare or cooler. And then you can obviously select the file and location you want to say the file in. So this is that when you add it will say your video, this is the location where the file will go to. So mind's going to deal in M1 Dylan May 2021. Perfect. Then you select, Okay. And then it brings you up to this and it can seem a first, a bit like what the heck is going on. So in this class, this class one, I'm going to teach you exactly what all of this is and how to use all of this and how not to get too scared by and how essentially understanding this right now is going to enable you to become such a better editor, more efficient editor. And by taking the time to watch this semi boring class, you can just save so much time in the future. So firstly, you've got the learning panel now, obviously, this is where they show you a few tutorials on how to get started learning the basics, etc. But this is not really useful panel because the tutorials are good, but they're a lot more complex than they need to be. I think in my opinion. Then we move over to the assembly panel. So on the left here you'll see that there's the project, the file you call the Skillshare I called mine. And whenever you code, your file will pop up next to the Project bit. This is basically where all of the files you drag and drop into this timeline go. So if you have music, the videos you add, they'll all end up here. And then you've obviously got media browser which hadn't really used markers are reuse, same for audio clip makes it overuse, and then Libraries again, not really relevant. The main thing I'd say the assembly panel is good for is seeing all of the different clips you've got in your timeline in a new project in one space? Coming down the other, no. Well, the thing is that when we talk about crazy adjustment layers later on, we're gonna go new layer, adjustment layer. And this will enable you to create a color grade. And by clicking on this little page peel here, it brings up a secret menu that we'd like a lot. Now, here we've got the timeline. Now the timeline is the most important thing in the whole of Premiere Pro. You'll understand more about this in the next class 1 MHC II footage. But this is why you see all of the audio and videos you've got, and next week you've got the main tool. So we've got the arrow tool, we've got the move everything along tool. We've got the report delete by basically brings everything to get declares that space race at all, which enables us to split clips. Then the pen tools not really relevant. And then we've got the text tool which enables us to type. And these are the tools, I'd say the pen tool and this one slip tool in hand tool. Then I'll really as important, we've also got know what the magnets that we'll talk about later on. Again, it's easy to see this via me putting a clip here. But just so you have a rough idea of what this is, because I'm sure they're very key stuff that bother very key, but we're gonna talk about it more in a second. Then we move over to the editing section. Again, we've got our timeline here. Our timeline is going to be on every panel at the top, symbol editing, color, effects, audio, graphics, captions, libraries. Now, editing, once you've kind of got your clips on the timeline, you might decide to select, select a clip and add an effect to it. Once you click on the clip on the timeline, it brings up the clip on the source section. And then here you can see media browser library info, then effects. And this is where you choose what effect to add to it. So we're going to talk about effects again later on. Again, a very useful panel, color. This is where you're gonna do your color grading Lumetri color pops up at the top right there, you select the clip on the source again. Then you can either color. Heading over to effects again, we've got a dedicated effects panel. But you can see how with all these different panels at the top here, if we're making an edit of a clip, we can see we can access the effects panel down here on the editing section, is there might not be a need to go all the way over to the Effects section. Once you get more advanced, she'll end up customizing your own workspace to make it the most efficient for you. We're going to talk about that later on. Here, the audio section, this is where if you wanted to customize your audio. Now this can be to make it louder, quieter, or just stuff. Again, it's a panel that I don't really use. Five-years of editing, don't really need it. We've then got the graphics panel at the top. And the graphics panel was one that I use all the time. This is where you'll find some default graphics from Adobe Premiere Pro. You can drag and drop them onto the timeline and they pop up in your video. Again, same sort of thing where the timeline stays at the bottom. They DO tools have moved up to the top here. And then you can see what sourcing more clip selected at the top with adding effects, again still possible down here. So you can see there's a lot of overlap in the different panels. Realistically, what I'd say is that when you're first starting out, when you're first going to add your very first video. Don't worry about many of them. Stay on the editing panel. There's also two workspaces at the end here, but they're my personal workspaces. That kind of irrelevant bananas show you how to create custom ones later on. But essentially, as soon as you open Adobe Premiere Pro, my recommendation to you is that you open up the editing panel. And from this editing panel, we are going to move forward. And we're going to look at adding clips to the timeline, subsequently editing those clips and so on. Now, there is so much to be getting on with on this layer initially. I, I wouldn't worry about it. You're going to learn so much through trial and error right now. So let's get on with it. 3. The Video Timeline (KEY!): So welcome to class 2. Now in this class, we are going to be looking at adding footage to the timeline and explaining the timeline. A very key concept for editing the whole video for the whole of your future editing career. This is probably going to be one of the most important classes. And the timeline is a concept that once you master, you can do so many things so that it's in. So firstly, we're going to grab that, drag and drop a clip onto the Adobe Premiere Pro timeline. And let's go ahead and do that right now. So once you're in the editing panel, panel, like I suggested you be on the end of last class. You simply want to find the file that you want to onto the timeline. So this is going to be all of the clips you've got for your video. Maybe it would be one clip, maybe several clips. You simply open up your Finder. Then if you have multiple clips, you would drag and drop them in the order they're filmed as so and then drop them. However, today we're just going to be working with one clip so I can really explain in detail the basics. So I'm going to drag and drop this one studio film clip where I talk about making a video in from the University of Sheffield. So I may drag and drop this clip onto my timeline, which is down here. It says drag and drop media hits credit sequence. It's going to import the files. And then once it's imported, we can see we are going to end up with a different layer on the screen. So we now have, is that we've got this kind of two-sided thing on the timeline. Now, I'm just going to drag and drop this arrow right here to make the timeline a bit bigger just for now, because the bigger this is easier to see sometimes. So right here we can see we've got this P over the name of the file below that we've got some audio bumps. So basically the top half of this time, I'm separated by this line here is for visual stuff like images for motion graphics, for the actual video. And then the bottom is for audio, music, bubble pops, sound effects, and so on. So we can zoom in and out on the track pad. And we can drag this cursor here to see the whole video. And then obviously when it ends, it ends and it goes back to being a blank timeline. So that is what we've done. We've now got the clip into the actual process of starting the process of editing. And we can see that now, whenever I click on this clip on the icing panel, it comes up with effects controls. So this is again, something we're gonna talk about later on, gray for zooming in now Eclipse, many other things. And then if we revisit some of the panels will see that we've now got a different source. So you can see the R source in the assembly section has got the file P1 000, which is the one I just drag and drops I was talking about earlier on. We can see all the files, audio, images, video that we've put onto our timeline here in this assembly section. And then again, if we now want to color something, we've now got the Lumetri Color window up here. So we're going to talk about that stuff later on. Let's head back to the editing panel and essentially talk about the timeline because there is a lot of things I wanted to cover here. So sometimes as a reference point, always save your work by going File Save right here because sometimes Adobe Premiere Pro can't glitch out. Now again, with our timeline, there's several different buttons here. We can see we've got this, which is an eye. If you toggle that I on and off, basically what it does, it removes the one of the visual layer. So we can see this timeline layer right here, kinda goes by the width and the height of my mouse. And it covers this first visual layer. If we toggle the eyeball on and off, we can see it makes the video come back disappear, come back this appearance so on, which is useful for reasons we'll talk about later on. And then we have obviously got this toggle sink lock, which I think we don't really need to mess around with. So it's going to say this AI tool will become very useful. The toggle, I wouldn't worry about it. Then the padlock tool again, this basically means that if I was adding a new clip, it wouldn't let me drag and drop it over the actual audio visual layer because it's got padlock on. It means we can't adjust this layer. However, you can see we haven't got the pilot comfort Jojo bit, which means that basically I'm adding a new clip. If I was being careless, I could accidentally add that new clip over my audio layer and then the audio is gone. So whites can combat that is to either firstly, turn on the padlock like we just did, or we can simply just ensure that we drag down a bit so that when I'm adding a new clip, it will go to layers below the original audio and layers above the original video. So there you go, perfect. Now, again, to play the video, you can obviously click Play and it will play the video or what you learned to do shortcut wise Spacebar. And then we can obviously drag and drop as we said. And then there's a few other things that I think are useful when you are creating videos. You might want to export shots, especially if you're making YouTube videos because exporting, for example, something like this and you find a good one might be good for the thumbnail. So I might go to this little arrow tool export frame. I click that and then basically it will let me save the file, what I've got to call a Skillshare to. And that was saved a JPEG file, which again is a very useful thing to do before we jump into creating the video. So again, here we can zoom into the video. Here we've zoomed down 50 percent. Here we've zoomed in 400%. And here we select fits, fits the best option. But obviously you can play around with that. Now, if you're layering up certain clips, the timeline is really how you do that. So for example, let's say I wanted to add and drag and drop a transition I don't wanna do. We're gonna talk more about transitions later on motion graphics. But I would never drag something on top of this, destroys a timeline. I'd always drag anything I wanted to overlay onto my tie, onto my video above the original clip that I put into my timeline. So the timeline really works in layers. So this would be layer one. This will be lead to, then if I wanted to add a third layer, what I would do is I would, for example, it can split this up above this font is add a fourth layer, that layer above it. Never drag-and-drop something to replace this file because then that original file, as we can see here, hopefully, the video disappears. So we never want to do that, right? And again, if we wanted to, let's say how our video on top of something and have some sort of background thing. Just don't want to tell you how today's lecture on. But you can see now I've got this background thing. The reason why the timeline and the layering is so key is because they get that effect. What I've done is I've had to make sure that the background layer is below the video layer. So really thinking about how things work like a puzzle in terms of layers and the different layers we have here is very key for moving forward. And I've shown you here at these things, but we're going to talk in detail about all of these a lot later, including the shortcuts which I'm now doing. So I share, redo that last one. Now in terms of the timeline and starting to edit your videos, a pro tip I would say, is that we always want this magnet tool to beyond because for example, what this does is if he was adding multiple clips, let me just grab another clip just to show you. So I'd go back into my finder. I drag and drop something and we can see a sugar carbon one. So I drag and drop this one, for example, and it automatically snaps on to the end of my video. So for example, with this magnet tool on, it basically ensures that my new clip, and when I'm adding a new clip to the timeline, it will go exactly to the very end of my other clip. It won't overlap it, it won't cut off the second clip shorts and make sure that it's perfectly magnetically attached to it. Whereas if this is often not highlighted blue, when you know, when you'll be trying to drop something, you wouldn't really know. If you're going to overlap slightly or if you're not going to overlap the last clip. So we always want to make sure that that is on. Now that is not part of this video. I'm going to turn back on the magnet. And we can see we're pretty much now we understand the timeline. We've got the clip, we're ready to edit our video. So without further ado, we're going to jump into the very first cut of this video. 4. The First Cut of your Video!: So welcome to class three, the first cut. Now this is what we're going to start making the video. Again. The first thing we're gonna do when we're making a video editing the first clip is that we want to make sure that both of the clips are highlighted by me. Go to edit them so that when we chopped the clips, both the audio and the visual sketch hot. So what I mean by chopped is we basically want to put the cursor and find all this dead space. But because as a viewer you don't want to see this dead space where people are thinking and you kinda want to swap it out. So once you've found the dead space, what you want to do to make sure that the database goes, is go over to this tool here. And remember I said that was a razor tool. Simply click on the razor tool and we can see it's got a shortcut C. So you can either press C or click on the razor tool brings up this tool. Then we're going to clip right here by selecting and it splits the clip. Then once I split lab, we're going to head over back up here to the arrow. And then we're going to simply drag and drop this, drag and drop this. And we can see that we've now, I basically dropped out the dead space. Now we've got this massive gap here. So how do we solve this gap? We can drag and drop that clip here. And I saw the gap. Now, drag and dropping is probably the thing that you think to do. But the best thing to do is essentially if, for example I had another split clip here. So three clips and I drag and drop to it. You can see that then have to drag and drop that one as well, which is pretty long. Now if I go back by pressing Command Z, instead of dragging and dropping the clip, simply double-clicked, then press ripple delete. You can see that it moves every single clip along from the right-hand side of it forward and clears out the dead space. So essentially what that video does, it goes from like this because it's yeah, it's just magically. And then you trim it real tight as we can see here, making sure it's real tight. Ripple, delete that just magically. So the universe, and again, then it flows a lot nicer. The video starts to flow a lot nicer. So you wanna make sure that, you know, it's really tight when you do this. And a shortcut way to basically drag and drop the end of that eclipse and drag and drop this way. The quickest way to do it is by pressing the shortcut W to trim the end of the clip. So and then Q to turn the star clip. Now that's really going to help in your process of being efficient. So you can either drag and drop and then highlight your mouse over the very end and trim it. Or you can press Q and W. And a pro tip here is to make sure that you're not cutting it. So there's literally no that space you can see right here, there's that space that you need, but you don't want to make it so that there's too much, there's space. You wanna make it sort of flows. But so it's not boring. So we can see right here, it's just magically. So the university, sabo a bit too much. So I'm gonna try. So I'm gonna trim, not just manually. So the University of Chicago it is. And then we suddenly starts to get this nice flow. Now remember, of course you can. If you wanted to, you know, stripped from another bit, you get the razor tool out again. You click on it. Then you got back to the arrow. Then you simply trim the sides of it by hovering your mouse over the split bit and then double-click the other ripple, delete up, and so on. So what I now need to do is go for the whole of this video and essentially ripple, delete the whole thing and make sure all the dead space is gone straight away. I'm going to click here. Now I really would encourage you to use shortcuts q and w. But let's just say I'm going to click here, I'm going to split this by gamma rays tool. Click here, delete it by pressing Backspace or Backspace to delete the clip. And then I'm going to ripple, delete the whole thing. Now. I'm now going to show you my whiskey way to do it. So essentially as a pronoun, I know that when I'm making these videos, I try and speak very good and flow stuff. So I make sure that if there I'm leaving a big gap. Last one, and yet it's a complete delete. So if I got here rapidly, Q, rapidly Q. And basically by doing this, it gives you a rough structure. And you notice by using the shortcuts Q and W, I can stand the ripple delete tool and just simply, simply repeatedly without having to change back and forth between my arrow tool. So yeah. So you can see are now making sure that the clips are all flowing. And woman to do is, I'm going to leave this video of five minutes long. Today's video that we're going to walk where there's going to be about five minutes, so we're going to end it there. But we can see here I'm slowly building on the process of making sure this is all nicely ripple, delete it, and you want to do exactly the same thing. This is very much the first step of video editing. Ensuring the video makes sense, insuring the cuts are there in basis. And then as you start to walk through a video next, you start fine-tuning these cuts so that the culture of making Flow very nicely. But it's important. The very first thing you do before you add music or Adelaide or anything else to do this trimming. Because if for example, I was to add a song underneath my video and then decide I want to trim lots of my video. It basically makes it so much more I should walk to sort out the timeline once you've already added several layers, like I could add music, but then if I wanted to, for example, delete something else, I have to reposition, position the music. So trust me, this is your first step and you can see already, I've probably lost about many of the movie of the video, but it's a lot more trimmed down. And a trimmed down clip is what we want, exactly what we want. So the next thing I want to do while I'm talking about the first current timelines. Unless I, uh, probably a common thing you want to do when you're new to Premiere Pro is add a video on top of another video though, for example, in this video I'm talking about the University of Sheffield. I find the clip that I wanted to overlay my video with. I would drag and drop it onto my timeline. As I said, making sure that the highlighted new to audio and visual clips are not overlapping. My original ones, drag and drop it and boom. Now the key right here. Essentially, this clip isn't good enough. We want to reposition it. We want to adjust the audio so it's not overlapping and all stuff like that. So yeah, that is an overlay. And that's what we're going to look at in the next class, adjusting audio and everything like that. 5. Adding Audio & Music to your Video!: So welcome to class for now. In this class we're going to pick up right where we left off. Now in the last class, we talked about the first cart and making sure that we got rid of all the dead space. And then we also looked at adding a little overlay. So I'm gonna click on the arrow, click on the highlighted clip, and delete that because we don't need that bit. And we're going to trim this down right here. So I said that I've now got a video overlay that I want to add onto my video. It's like a little cool intro thing. So the one I'm talking about, the University of Sheffield, what is going to happen in the video is that there's going to be an extra video on top of me, you know, my original video showing you the US, the University of Sheffield. And then the way to do this is we said is why laser so key, we made sure that this new audio and visual or above the layer of my original video and audio file. And the very first thing you noticed, we need to do how many unified adjust the audio because as you can tell, the audio is overlapping and we don't want it to be overlapping. So right now what we're gonna do is we're going to click the clip of audio. We want to reduce the chef at intro. Then I'm going to right-click on it, double-click, Sorry. Scroll down to Audio Gain. And I'm going to put this on minus a 100. What it then does is it takes you down to the lowest audio level. Heavy intros and say, Well, welcome back to the universe. And we can see again, I'm just gonna be about slightly, but we can see again that there is now no audio from my original video diaries, audio for my original video, but there's no audio for my new video and it's just got the picture nobody uses. Then an alternatively or if you wanted to, you could do a thing called unlink. So right now when I click on both this clip, you can see we've got highlighted video and we will the corresponding highlighted audio. If we double-click on that, scroll down to unlink, basically now means that when I click on the video, it only highlights one of them. So they're running it. Once they're unlinked, you can choose the backspace and delete whatever you want. So you can now see that I've deleted the whole file, basically freeze up a timeline of it. If you're editing a complicated video file or project, it might be worth doing this. So we can see now that the review series today we're looking at University of Sheffield. I'm talking about the University of Sheffield. Precisely. Perfect. Very good. I'm going to save this work. Always save your work regularly. So this class is obviously about audio. And the next thing I wanted to talk about, audio was adjusting, as we saw about adjusting it to essentially make it go down all the way to minus a 100 to make it quiet. Often, we might want to adjust the gain or cell again to a certain number by making sure that the volumes allowing the volumes be loud enough or the volumes to be quiet enough. Now what I like to do is to adjust the game by and just press numbers two or four dB outputs are down, and I keep going up or down until I reached the audio level that I want. So if I wanted to make it quieter, a pretty one minus four, minus four, and it will do that if wanted to make it louder, I press F4 and that will subsequently go louder. So for example, you can see that if I just did by four, watch the timeline. The fx goes yellow to show that we've edited something. And we can see that the audio peaks get a bit louder. Now when I play this clip, we'll see on the side right here, we've got the audio. This is one I've been to several times visiting friends. And we can see this a bit bigger and more aggressive boss than it was before. And you can see they're not quite peaking. If it's fully read, for example, then every bad audio for. So if I went to add 15 to this Snap enough for box a few times so we can see it stays at red. And when the audio stays at read, that basically means that it is too high. Take it down. But right here, hovering around slide, the amber zone, but a great Popular Unity. So I thought this bit of green, but it sounds go to my ear and I think this is the perfect level. So there is how you adjust the audio for a clip. If you wanted to adjust the audio for all of these clips, like it is, the same way I just did. Then highlight all of them. But the first one because we've already adjusted the first one, because the audio again and press F4. Now with audio if you wanted the video to come out one channel. So the S right here and yes, represents both channels, both bounce and sequence when the audio is being played. If for some reason you wouldn't really need to do this, you could change the channel just the left or the right, but scrap that. You would never wanna do that. You always want audio out both channels. So that is essentially what we're going to stick it with. Now, next up on the audio agenda, we're going to talk about again, layering the audio. Let's say if I had a background, so on. So if you had a piece of music that you wanted to add to your video, to the background of your video, etc. Find the file, simply drag and drop on your timeline. Boom, it pops on and then you just drag and drop it to adjust it. But you'll notice this in the series where we review every unified spotty loud. So all you then need to do is you need to adjust the volume. So you might want to adjust their bioassay. For example, I know this is very loud. Minus 25, minus 20. I just want this to be in the background, the UK. And today we are going to be excluded. Now that's perfectly sounds a bit too quiet. So I'm going to add a ton of Oddi again by three. So now I'm gonna gain of minus 17. Perfect. But another thing you'll notice is that that is a very heavy and the audio series where we review every unit, the audio of the star is now very quiet, but he gets a bit louder there. Hence the bumps change. So what you then can do is go back to our Razor Tool or press E on the keyboard, click, and then it splits up into two. Once the clip is split into two, we can adjust the volume of one clip without affecting the other clips. So we've got one clip here, one clip here. And I'm going to adjust this because basically a key editing tip is that. To create a soul vibe for the video, you often want to start a video with a bit louder music. The audience hear the music, then they go, Oh, that's the vibe of this video. That's cool. I like it. And then so that I can hear what you're saying a bit more clearer. You slowly fade down the music, bring down the levels, and so on. So right here. That is a very heavy intros. It's AICPA, welcome back to the university or up to again, I just did it by 2 and I'm no split it again right here. Make sure that this is one more louder tumor latter actually use series today we're looking at the University of Sheffield. And this is one I've been to several times and seeing friends and showed that video and up in that for box a few times when I was doing my flat six. And it's a really popular union, so I thought this should be next. And then what I did after that was I simply made sure that the entire eclipse loud gets a bit quieter. Quieter, quieter again. So that is called the effect of just chilling out. Now again, another key thing that I wanted to mention with audio, and so there's lots of good audio effects. So for example, just for simplicity, I'm going to say let's head over to the Effects panel at the top. Once you're on the Effects panel, what we wanted to do, there is actually the effects section right here, and we've got a whole lifted list of effects. Now we've got audio effects. I mean, go audio transitions. When you're transitioning between different audio pieces maybe or two different songs. Or you've got allow clip than a quiet clip, add a little constant power transition onto it as so. And what this does if you had a really lousy happen already quiet clip, it would match them so they kind of sink nicely together. She drag and drop that in. Really crazy smooth transition you might have sought to make in this series where we review every really smooth by dragging them out longer to make that transition long run smoother, or really sure. So a common thing that happens with me, I'm just gonna delete the rest of the song just because it was for a show, for the intro. Let's say, for example, I made a mistake and awarded for this episode. And I had to overlap some audio and I wanted to cut myself off, right. So I messed up on the one I want is coming some flood this. So you can see that I'm like episode. So like it's like a very quick transition by adding this crossfade, it makes it a lot less abrupt and nice if the viewer, later on in this episode, so the universe. So you can see how it kind of fades that transition I was having a listen again. It's really like fading between clips and merging between clips. Great point and changing audio. Great for when you've got a clip that fills quite harsh on the air when it transitions between and so on. So the universe. And you can see the difference if you can't hear the difference. Perfect, but that cannabis actually fine. So I'm gonna leave it like this. So constant power, a fantastic, fantastic tool, constant gain. This is great for having an intro that builds with music. So if you wanna do music buildup at the little constant gain effect, that is a very heavy. And let me make it a bit louder. So you can just here for now. See you here, star very quietly and he gets louder. And so are these effects simply drag and drop, make it longer or shorter to affect the, the amplitude of the effect. That is a very heavy intro. Exactly. Or we can make even longer. That is a very heavy introduces a for a walk and then fades in audio down to a t. So I'm going to leave the fade in there. Perfect. So kinda crazy survive for the video. This works really well on YouTube of them. And then I'm going to talk about the effects. I don't wanna use too many effects, but you can obviously echo and delay stuff by having a play around with these effects. Because realistically series, they're not really that useful when you're making a video. Reverb can be quite funny, but listen. Today we're looking at University of Sheffield, EJ Khalid. That's what it sounds like. C, you don't really need it. So I'd say if you're a beginner, audio effects, you're probably not going to need key, key transitions are the constant power and the constant gain. So what else do that? I'll mastering a clip. Now, a very, very cool thing with audio is there, let's say together cleanest and Christmas or crispy just audio. You can master clip. So for example, on the Effects panel search for Maslow. Then I'm actually most of this clip here just so you can hear the difference. This is what it sounds like right now. Anything like die basically everything surrounding the universe. If I drag and drop this special mastering effect. If shadow, let me drag it over again. And we're going to be taking a deep dive into it to see if now I completely changes the sound of your audio. Now mastering is known to make sure all the levels of consistent gives that rich full sound. And also many. So very, very cool and good thing to do if you're looking to get high-quality audio. Now I always Maslow my videos and my audio sounds a lot better for it. But once you drag and dropped the monastery on short piece of audio that you want to master. And it's often recommended to do this at the very start so that before you split up your clips. But we'll talk about that and why that's more efficiently drawn. But for right now to get a concept of mastering a piece of audio, you then scroll down and you can see that the audio, we've got the mastering, got this custom setup. I'd recommend clicking on Edit. Then going down to subtle clarity. We don't, uh, bri sound clicking on low shelf, high shelf, turning down that reverb and going on chub. Okay. No, for the campus, everything like die, basically everything surrounding the University of Chicago. And what that does is it gives you so much more of a rich Philae sounds rather speak is, which is so much nicer. The bright Hype may have found very like this and very much like nasally and you can really tell is fake and edited the cell. So clarity gives you that clarity that is subtle. Hence why it's called SO2 clarity. So this is a key episode or forgiveness mean kidneys me. This is a key episode. So a 100 percent. They are all the audio tricks in the book that I use. Take these if you're looking to create high-quality video, as soon as you put your clip on the timeline. Maastricht first thing master. Now I wanted to wait till audio to talk about this because I don't want to overwhelm you at the start, but trust me, first you wanna do before you even chopped up your clips, actually master all of them, and then chop them up, k. Remember that? Thank you very much. You're making great progress accompany you're going to be a second antibody and it is our promise you, you're going to be amazing. But yeah, I hope you're enjoying. Please leave a review as well. If you're currently enjoying this class, it really helps. 6. Motion Graphics, Zoom & Positioning (KEY!): Hello and welcome to class 5. In this one, we're going to be taking a look at motion graphics, how to zoom into a clip, how to zoom out of it, and how to reposition stuff. So it's a very key class. And motion graphics, I believe, of the things that are going to take your videos from level one to level ten because they make things seem professional. They give it the wow factor because you drag and drop a motion graphic and simply you get this cool animation. It looks professional, it looks cool, and so on. So firstly, we're going to talk about how to reposition something because this will be very relevant for, for motion graphics. And so obviously so far we've got the music of the style, we've got the chopped hold, Eclipse, we've got the fade in, we've got the audio transitions looking kinda nicely. And we've got an overlay clip right here, and we deleted the volume for this overlay clip. So I'm summing up what we wanna do right now because we want this overlay clipped to be covering the whole screen so you can hear my audio and voice from my original footage right here, but you can only see this clip right here. So what we wanna do is on the Effects panel, let's say freeze on the Effects panel, we click on the clip. It will then bring up this video section on the top left here, where it says motion. Once it says motion, click position while this clip is highlighted. And it brings you up this little box. Now on this little box, simply drag this out here series today we're looking at the University of Sheffield. And this is one that I've been to. And boom, we can see that it's completely covered and then start the video every brings out the box, click away, the box disappears. Let us say we didn't want to just make it bigger. We wanted to move it so I can make it smaller. Simply click on the middle, drag and drop for anthro rotates it down on the corner of it, do a little rotation and so on. So I'm going to leave this nice and big. Let's say you wanted to do a slow zoom. This is where it gets quite complicated, I should say, is we would, I'm just going to be this for a second. Click right on position and scale one showing the effects panel in the top left. And we can see we've highlighted the clip. We want to go to the very start of it. And this is how to do a slow zoom in and you can change the pace afterwards. And you do the opposite for slows him out. So the very start of the clip is highlighted. We then want to click a position and scale. This has a base position for the clip of the starts. And then we wanna do is you want to scroll to the end of the clip, Double-click again, zoom in. And it should pop up with another key frame here. And then if you change the position, you would pull up with another keyframe here in between the two key frames. Once it happens, basically, It's going to, it's going to slowly zoom in, in the duration between the start of the clip, on the end of the clip. So watch this. Let's give Sheffield. And this is one I've been to several times visiting friends and showed that video. And I've been there for box a few times when I was doing athletics. And it's a really popular uni. So I thought this should be next up in the series where we review every university in the UK. So zooms in very slowly. You can see zoomed in if you wanted to make this quicker, but keep it consistent, we can just drag and drop this scale keyframe all the way to the star there and watch this now, our C review series today we're looking at the University of Sheffield. And this is one. I'm a super zoomed in LSA. They offer this. We wanted to zoom by how we can literally just drag this right here. Might put in us and small change the position. Drag this along here so it's a bit slower. Position can be a slow change right here, so we can drag and drop the position change to make it slower device the review series today we're looking at the University of Sheffield. And this is one I've been to several times visiting friends and sure enough, video and up enough for box a few times when I was doing that. And it's a really popular. And there you go. That's roughly how you do it. So it's really about, you know, you've got two key frames. One for changing the size, which is the scale. And then he bought and helping with Zoom and stuff. And then you've got another one for position which changes whereabouts is going to be on the on the, on the clip. So wanna do on a lever. So they say only on this slow Zoom version. So now we know how to reposition things human and now that's sort of scale. We're now going to be one, so motion graphics. So let's head over to the graphics panel at the top. And then we should see this Essential Graphics panel open. And basically I've downloaded some additional motion graphics, but we're not going to use them today. We're going to focus on just a few default ones that come with Adobe Premiere Pro. So you can click on the stock section. And then we can see right here we've got premium or free, select free. Then simply click on the cloud button and download a few these motion graphics. So let's say for example, I decided I wanted sock will reveal title. Click Download was mindset. I got you basically click Download. And then what it does, downloads, it's your library, and then you can start to users. So once you've downloaded it, you'll see a new library. If not, just drag and drop it from the Adobe Stock place basically moves your template section. But we can see right now, I'm going to mute it because we're not going to do this. We've got a nice little transition with title. So this is great for the start of the video. So let's have a listen mind Troy finishes here in the UK. And today we are going to be exploring the good. The bad everything about University of Sheffield. So I might decide to put my title off that they've seen my face just like get connected to me and then I'll hit them with a cool motion graphic, another pro tip. So what I'm gonna do is I'm gonna put it here. Then it kinda comes in a cooler transition. Now the transitions are often good when you're mixing between clip to clip. So for example, if you put transition over this bit right here, because we're going from one clip to another clip learnings close this. It basically means that you wouldn't see, it'll be a very seamless transition. So you can either do a title transition at the start or its high school transition between clips. They both work really well. For the sake of this, I'm just going to do It's high school transition right here. Then you're going to press the T button. Once this on the screen, click on it, press T or click on this little texting here. Then click where the text is highlighted, delete it, and then just type in whatever you want. The unit of Sheffield. Boom, it looks very nice. Then you can obviously come down here and change the style on the right, make it a talent. You have to highlight those. So that's, that highlights it. Make it a Talmudic. Making a big, small, whatever you wanna do to change up the color, the scale. You can do a lot of stuff, change up the color of this. But I don't think you really want to initiate whether you might want to change the color just to make it nice and color coded. So I'll make this white color Sheffield, a light blue. Boom. And then we've also got the stroke, we've got the shadow. And then you can keep moving around the text. If you click the arrow tool, we can kind of break it down into the different components and move them around. But I'd say with motion graphics and the templates they give, you, just leave them exactly how they all, because that tried and tested walking, cool motion graphics, you know, so I'm going to put this back here. Then I'm going to play the clip. Like that looks pretty cool if you ask me, so that you have a motion graphic is added. Now, pretty much the same process is for all motion graphics. Let's say I went back on my templates. I've got this like Suggestion. Download is to encourage people to like my videos and stuff like that. This was a template I got from Adobe. Download it. Boom. Sometimes the template doesn't fit exactly into your video and what you have to do is you have to resize it. So how do you resize it, as we just talked about on the graphic section, click on the live life thing. It pops up with the graphics thing here. Click Position scale, you know, drag and drop it. If you want to make it smaller, make that like that. And basically it's going to stay small and in opposition now because we haven't added any keyframes, we're not changing the position, we're just making a start and end. So I don't making it bigger. Now, making a smaller, it's literally going to guess though on in there. So it's like if you don't touch these buttons, then it was thought in the, so perfect. And obviously if you wanna zoom in, zoom out, move around, mess around with these two buttons as we just did. Boom. To many of the motion graphics smaller, just do the same thing as always. Obviously, here's where layering comes in. If I was to now wanted to use the shortcut boss and w to end the clip to trim that leave a light thing happens, it turns the whole clip. So that's really why you really want to think about strategically editing the video first and then adding stuff on top off there. Because imagine if I had, you know, how to like this. Well, this was the thing I had fast and that was like, yeah, I want to add I want to trim this now. It breaks the whole clip, it messes everything up. So excuse me. So to show this, I'd say simply drag and drop it like so. Or you can alternatively padlock it. Wwf doesn't want ksi. So you really got to turn like that or you can get the old razor tool out by pressing C, then V to get the arrow tool, click the backspace, delete. So let's see what we got here. Again, a pro tip. You never want to overload the audience of motion graphics. So I'm going to wait for about another 20 seconds before I decide to pop this one up. And I think it's always good to do a little motion graphics transition, should we say, when we're going from clip to clip. So I can simulate this drag and drop this transition I go and I make it shorter by drag and dropping it. And I'm gonna put it over this clip right here. So sometimes you might go from one clip to another clip talking about new topic. Adding a transition just makes everything seem more smooth because it's like you can't see the clip being changed, but you can still hear the audio. And it sounds like one constant smooth thing that I'm gonna move this up a bit later on. So again, a pro tip, adding a transition over a clip, two different clips. Perfect. That's why you do the transition. Include a title which is relevant to the following section. And transitions are especially useful as motion graphics when you're going from talking about, for example, the campus, a university too, for example, the nightlife. You can transition in between like Canvas and live life by having this thing on the screen right now and put in my life. And what it does is it sets up the scene perfectly for the next bit of the video. So we're going to leave this as transition. We've looked at a ti's for motion graphics. We've looked at transition motion graphics, and we've looked at the Arduino code out all the old reminder to leave a like and stuff like this. Again, you can have no one of these. Then you simply click on it, customize it. You know, hello. Do it line by line on top and leave a review. Thank you. Skill Share. And we can see right here, here it is, boom, it's going to pull policy very cool, Cool out. We obviously want this to be in the location of actually touching on something. So we're gonna make sure we click Position, drag and drop a less safe. My respond was the thing I was pulling out. My pity that I want to make it a tiny bit smaller just because I don't have to be too overwhelming. And there it is, boom and pops out into the corner. How lovely is that? Then to move around, what we could do is we can click position and the stop, you know, pops out. Presuppose. Double-click on opposition again. Oops, I messed up. Okay, we're gonna go here. Double-click position, then we're going to move it. Let's say, let's say I'll pay it sets up for some reason. And I'm going to press play. And how quickly it moves. Slow it down once again. And this is really good. A few schooling are specific object that was traveling up on screen. Use position. Slowly follows whatever is moving up on screen. So it kinda stays with the object that is calling out. If that makes sense, That's advanced. But there you go. Motion graphics. What else did I want to say about them? Yeah, So I've told you how to get them, how to zoom in and out, what they are, how to use them, how to customize them. And then you go, probably one of the most useful classes in this whole entire series, get as many motion graphics as you can. Use them, your quality will improve, be consistent, and use don't overload them. Laughing. Thank you. 7. Colour Grading in Adobe Premiere Pro!: So welcome to class 6. And this one we are going to be taking a look at the color grade. A very, very important thing to do whenever you're making any sorts of videos. So to get started, obviously we've gone music or fades are building up our intro clip. Tie tools on motion graphics. I'll transitions, audios mixed and matched and sorted out. So and I'll call it or call-outs that we're going to put in different places where appropriate. The next thing I'd say you want to do is once you've added all the motion graphics, you want to, once you've added all the overlays in times of footage and images that you want to. Then what you can do is, let's say you wanted to change the color of your video. What you doing This is a pro tip again, you have to basically create an adjustment layer. And this is the quickest way to do it. So we're going to head over to the assembly panel. Then, like we talked about the star, we're going to head down to this little page flip click Adjustment Layer. What this adjustment layer does, it comes up right here. And then we simply need to drag and drop it onto the timeline. But before we drag and drop it onto the timeline, and we want to make sure it's only going to affect these videos right here. All of this, our main bulk of video, because with the color of this has already been sorted, the color of this is already perfect same for this, this same for this. So we're going to hover over to our adjustment layer. One or for visual double-click or right-click, press Add Track. Now, this basically means that everything that was on this layer up one. So we can simply now drag and drop this adjustment layer over to this massive, massive new track. Take it all the way to the end of the video. Then we've got all our adjustment layer. Now what this does, you can basically customize this adjustment layer without entering editing the original footage. So if I was assembly calibrate this clip, it will basically affect this clip and only that clip. And then I'd have to be hard to get rid of it by doing it on an adjustment layer. How do I describe it? It's like if you wanted to make peace of can look red rather than paints it red. You could get some yellow glass and put that yellow glow, red glass in front of the can, then it seems red as opposed to just painting the whole thing. Because painting the whole thing's little vector, right? So no, I don't know what it is that I have a sore throat. So skeletal drink. I hope you're doing well, guys, I hope I was pretty day to you if you're in this class. So I hope you're doing well. Hope you selling drawing it has the learning loss as well. That's the main thing, is yeah, we can head over to the color panel. And then we're simply going to have a look at the basic correction. And then we're going to have a look at the creative. So obviously for me, This video is all one color because I'm in the same location, therefore only needs color-code one section of clips. If I had different clips of different positions with different backgrounds and different colors in the background. Then color grading gets a bit more complex and takes me more time. But for example, this one right here, let's just take this though, called me semi smiling. I should at least get one of me pointing and spawning. Now it's me, the color doesn't look too bad and it's had on my brightness. So I feel like you have just making sure they're more or less warm up in more of a pop, a bit more of a fine finish. The first thing I'm gonna do in this instance is head to head over to the Creative section. Then look at a preset menu for the color codes. So let's click on them. We've got that one. No bad. We got this one horrendous. This one horrendous. And they might all seem horrendous. It stopped. But basically, that is because you want to turn down the intensity. We want to turn down the intensity. Really. A pro filmmaker told me this 16, I do acting. He told me that you will never have it higher than fatty around the 2009 mark is probably the best place to have it. So for example, if I turn on bleach HDR, put the intensity on 29, then an honest adjustment layer. I could hide it, get it back, how hide it, get it back out. We can see the economists, the kilowatts, in my opinion, I don't like it as much. So I'm not going to change it. So I'm going to head over to blue ice. Now this makes it even more interesting. It may say less warm, but it's still keeps that nice color of my face. And to me it kind of highlights the blues and the background. And it highlights the, the blacks quite nicely as well. So if it was on a 100, that would be too much, is too much, too much or does not deal with. So I said about 30 is perfect. So now we've got the default color grade. We're then going to start customizing it now this is the beginner intros, color grading. This is if you're creating high-quality videos or anything like that, It's perfectly fine to do it like this. If you creating a feature film, then obviously you probably want to liquidate the S curves and all this other stuff about for me just to give it that more consistent balance, I like turning up the fader film to about six, just so I make sure the background is roughly in line with my my colleagues and all the lights nor the front. It kind of balances out. Sometimes I like to set up the vibrance a bit because it's colors. But today I'm not going to have on 0. And I'm going to come up with the shadows. And I've got a brighter by one. I've shown you tell the shadows believed brightness as it is. Then I'm going to look at why is slightly turned down the whites, blacks again. Maybe going to put this in a custom one. Then contrasts wise. One side and slightly down. Then I'm going to go back onto vibrance one creates a panel and turn this up to about 10. And there you can see that's the sort of color grade I would like to follow if my videos, it basically gives it a bit more of a prestigious feel. And it's all about messing around with think while Express. I'm actually going to turn this contrast by 300. And I'm going to highlight slowly down. And evil at that last me happy. So we've gone from a very warm color. I'm saying about is known as cool as this blue eyes right now. And then you can continuously change up what you want, et cetera, et cetera. Certainly there's some fancy one. And as you can see, for example, now this color grade runs throughout the whole of the adjustment layer, which is exactly why one I can delete you just Malaya, because bytes that they're backed by that Haida. So I can see the difference. And it's really about changing the background color tone more bluish. It really depends what you like. It's all about what you think works well for your video, there's no right or wrong answer. There's obviously stuff like this. Let's see here. Click on the adjustment layer, Shadow Tint. And if you want to make it super green or humans to change out the S-curves. Let's call it the S-curve up, which is, for me a bit too much. I don't know, the midtones is quite good to turn out to be fair. But for me it's a bit much to be playing with. I'm not as confident. Looking at this stuff as I am with wider showed you, although I've just had a mess around with myself for the first time in awhile. And I actually quite like what it's just done. By turning out the midtones. It seems they're given a bit more lighter, lighter fill, which I call it like so they are even I just learned something new. So that's why I suggest playing around with basic correction, creative. And then once you understand a bit more, or maybe look at the mid-tones of see shadows and stuff like that. It's the highlights again. Player play around with more and so we think, but there you go. There is color grading. Thank you very much. On to the next. 8. Customisation In Premiere Pro! : So welcome to class seven. Now in this class I'm going to be teaching you how you can add new fonts and motion graphics to your Adobe Premiere Pro. So as I've shown you in the previous classes, you can add cool effects, fonts, and motion graphics towards your video, and it really helps spice up your video and everything like that. Now often as a beginner, it can be quite confusing on how can I get new fonts into Adobe Premiere Pro and how can I get call new motion graphics into Adobe Premiere Pro and use them because you might be washington video and think, I like that font. I want to use that font away. I don't have it on my phone list. How can I add? So this is what this episode is for in this, in this course. Now, essentially what you have to do, I just explained it before I show you, is you have to download and find the actual original file of the fonts online, save it to your hard drive and then import it into Adobe Premiere Pro. Now, when you later on, learn how to learn a lot more about Adobe Premiere Pro and you're comfortable using it. You can actually import 20 different fonts all at once, but inspire a much more complicated way on the computer where you have to go into the original Adobe Premiere Pro files. However, this way is the simple way on how to import Adobe Premiere Pro new fonts or motion graphics. And the only downside is that you can only import them one at a time. So if you have 10 new fonts, you'd have to click and certainly fallen inside the font in Sandy fun. Whereas later down the line, when you Milan more about motion graphics, you might decide to buy a whole motion graphics pack. And once you buy whole pack, this basically includes thousands of fonts and graphics. And instead of doing these one at a time, importing them into Adobe Premiere Pro, like this tutorial is about to show you. You can basically add them all to your Premiere Pro all at once. And that is a very helpful thing. But without further ado, I'm going to pause over to myself and I'm going to show you how to add motion graphics and new fonts into Adobe Premiere Pro. Today I'm going to be showing you how to install new motion graphics into Adobe Premiere Pro 2021. So first off, Google some motion graphics you want to download and download them. Once you download them, come in zip folder, double-click the zip folder, it'll open up the folder. There'll be transitions, fonts, and other stuff inside this zip folder. And for example, if I double-click and open one of these folders, you can seal the Adobe Premiere Pro files, et cetera, et cetera. Firstly, follow my other tutorial and install the fonts for the motion graphics. That's another video. However, once you've essentially got all the files you need and install the fonts head over to the graphics panel in Adobe Premiere Pro. And then the bottom right-hand corner. Once you're on Browse and graphics, there'll be an install new graphics button, click that, and then go into your downloads. Find the folder you just downloaded in terms of your graphics, and simply double-click open on the file you want to install and the motion graphic you want to install. And then just like that, the motion graphic is installed into Adobe Premiere Pro and it's pretty much fit to use. The only downside is that you have to click every single motion graphic individually in my in my case and probably your case purely because I don't know why, but it's a bit of a problem and a bit long, but it's still worth. It's a very simple way to add motion graphics. And you can see that they just pop up literally as soon as you double-click them. And then I can drag and drop them. Once they knew it takes a few minutes for them to kinda a few seconds even for it's a fully upload. And you can see straight away, it's boom is in there on the video. And it works. And it's great. 9. My Top Video Editing Tips: So welcome to class eight. Now this class again is a class where I'm going to be talking to you all about tips and tricks going forth. You're editing career because in today's class I basically told you how to get the whole layout sorted, how to figure out the first cart, how to color grade audio effects, cool transitions, and then how to start adding and bringing in new elements with motion graphics. And then subsequently how to get new motion graphics to customize your videos even further. Now, as a beginner and as a complete guide to video editing for beginners, I think those are roughly the majority of the tools you're going to need. I'm going to bring it out and advanced Premiere Pro editing course are very, very soon. So if you do want to see that, please do leave a review and please do leave a nice comment in the discussion down below. Now I think this is, although I'm not going to be showing you anything new in this class and this episode. This is probably one of the most important classes because I've been editing for five years, over five years, you learn so many, so many things. And all of the things that I've been learning. I want to pass on to you. So this class is all about tips and tricks for beginner editors. The first thing is that at it's saying, now sounds silly. You can get incredibly hunched over like this and be like this for absolutely hours. Take regular breaks. I know it's boring. You don't hear it, but trust me, take regular breaks, just get the back stretch is going because whilst you might love video anything, you don't want it to affect your posture. And this is one thing I'll try and maintain. Getting a good chair. Getting desk high is such a key thing for, for editors. It's a pro tip on being a good editor because if you're salmon for editing is low because you like on my back in the future, you're not going to be a good editor. If you keep good posture, you keep your fluid going forward. You'll be able to edit for long periods of time and it will serve you well. Secondly, of course, have regular breaks because your eyes strain editing, trust me, your eyes strain. So just tap breaks while you look away and reset and recharge efficiency. The key thing to look at Editor being efficient, making sure that for example, when you're opening up a file on your computer, you might have a folder on your desktop that has your logos. These logos might be logos that you are regularly adding to your videos by making sure that those logos are just able, you are able to access them very quickly. It'll save you having to click through loads of files and clicking like desktop, folder, folder, folder to get to the logos. So basically what I'm saying is confusing at the logos and the stuff you need for editing all into one folder so that when you click on that folder, it brings up everything you might need to edit. Because if you've got a search around for ages on your desktop, it can take fricking ages, bro to learn so that they can take extra time. Excuse my voice break. So that's again the added done. And the longer you spend on your computer staring, not making progress at the edit, the harder it becomes, the more boring it becomes an official job. Then ultimately, efficiency is going to be a very useful thing. So making sure that all of your Adobe Premiere Pro graphics, logos music is in one folder is a great thing to do. Secondly, making sure you edit your videos. And the way I've told you in today's video is also going to be a very, very good thing for just genuinely, genuinely, genuinely ensuring that your editing process is smooth, slick, and quick. And then just finally, pro tip. Have fun because sometimes you might decide you're losing your creative flare while editing. And then as you start to lose that creative flare can become boring. And as it becomes boring, you kinda drift away from what you think you might love. So by making sure you're constantly trying to try new stuff as opposed to seconds are the same formula. You're going to be happier and a much better and it's an editor and also look and put in the effort to learn new skills. Now I've told you the fundamentals in today's class. You might decide that you want to learn how to, how to calibrate properly. Now I can assure you that taking the initial day or two to learn how to properly color grade is going to be such a valuable skill going forward because it improves your quality production massively. So what I'm saying is, my final tip is to make sure you put in the effort before you start editing videos to really get a grasp of everything and to learn everything. Because in the long run, although in pace the heart to be patient, sometimes being patient and learning of the skills before you start sweating videos is going to be very, very useful, useful tool. So if there's anything else I've missed in this class, I can always add an extra episode, so please comment in the discussion board. But I've hoped you enjoyed this course. Let's get on with the next one. 10. Bonus Class - A Perfectly Edited Video: So welcome to the bonus class. Now as a video editor, I'm often using all of these tricks that I've shown you in today's class in all of my videos. So I thought, what could I do to show you how useful these things out I'm teaching you? And the simple answer is to show you one of my vlogs. So recently on my channel, I made a Day in the Life of 2021 where I basically use all of the elements that I've shown you in this video, in this block. And now the key thing is the weird thing is that half the stuff I've shown you and enables the flocked to flow smoothly. And you wouldn't even notice that I've got audio transitions on. You wouldn't even notice there's a small color grade. You wouldn't even notice when the background music fades in and out because That's the beauty of video editing. You just subtle things that as a viewer you don't really realize, but they make a huge difference whether you actually notice it or not. So if you don't notice it, then I've done a perfect job. If you do notice it, then great. You've got good a and good eyesight for spotting those things. But let me roll of log and then a life of 2021 where I just kind of update people on my life. See my friend James go for a COVID test and loss of stuff like that. So here is a terminal block that also starts off with the colo montage and runs throughout the whole video where I've got these, all these different colored rays and things going on. So I hope that you can see all of the things you've learned in this class in this following clip and this clip. And I hope that it will help you lots with your class project because saying all these things in action, it's going to be helpful when you do them yourself. That's a good test if you're trying to drive with a vlog camera, keep in a study if you are bad drivers, a slightly eggs and top challenge years ago, the UK is too humid. The first open the agenda today is to head into that Markey. I wish it was to watch the euros with some friends, but this really was the one day I chose the blogging and be like This is so good recently I feel like a few decisions just haven't quite gone my way. The weather, I was long three times the original Neo I made a 108 squid, can't complain if I held them for days longer, automated another 240 could. But listen, one can never be too greedy, especially when it comes to profit, because that's how things end up sound. Never be greedy, always be happy. You may prefer, never complained about the most. Is Cecilia Low a COVID test we draw must go on back on Monday every week would go get tests just to make sure we're safe. So I mean, fairly standard, fair enough. Oh, I guess non-literary happens to everybody else. Every surface around. What's this really? Does anybody know What's this? Well, I always wanted to write this next week 9. We learned. Now the curve is that's done. And now today's vlog was going to be about hot boy, some of a kiss. It doesn't get enough love. And it's random modes, so that's not ideal. So a good friend of mine, a drama school here. He was taking one of the weekly COVID test the score, and he sneezed like I did, and he cracked his rib from doing a COVID test services. Then I've always been kinda wired about cracking my ref from a COVID test by so we'll get 0. So you're probably wondering what the heck is going on. Basically it's running low. So I've had to put you in the boob. I saw good for now. Since today's video is going to be all about how you can get into shape even if you've got no Timmy experienced or nothing like that. Because I've got a friend, James, PT on a cruise ship for many years. He spent on the podcast, he's trailing insane amounts ready first fast MMA fight and he spread it. So the plan was to get him alone to come down. He's only its way now and fame to take us through a walkout for anybody that wants to get in shape. So I'm ready for for the session. And it's only really since I've hit 202122. If I go to the gym, I actually pull muscle because obviously testosterone, Django is the buying gym. This guy is ready to his head to get us ready for our voice omer. First time I ever heard of it was two days ago or three years ago when you text me. And I'll take everybody for those of us who are gonna get lean with you, yes. We're going to look at it. I know. You Sorry. Did I answer? It's been boiling hot and then I was like, Yeah, let's do today. James or channel a brand new channel, James Sullivan and check it out. First video on there, say they push up challenge. You'll see my camera. Sentencing domain for k with that thing. It's even evidence for RCA is actually runs for k from camera. There we go. Almost looks okay, from camera 60 frames a second archon changer for us. You know, I do actually, yeah. Yeah. Why should you listen to the podcast you came on how long enough? Our months ago, months ago, and he's talking about you're one of the goals was to travel MMA fight obviously posture. One of the goals was to travel MMA fight obviously. But then you're training certainly hard to tell him how much he trained. 56 days a week, one to three hours a day, depending on the day. And is that it's not a finished with that more for them. So think are definitely more for the technique of it learning the skills, like obviously the physical side of it comes with it. Because you're doing a lot of work every single day. It's more like trying to learn the proper technique or 7500 likes and I spy James and we'll see what happens. Yeah, good luck. By the little respond with Georgia for the blog. He picked up the nose and start bleeding. Stylized here, masters, sprints. Do you know how a lot of people doing cardio, forget train and six times a weakness, this 10 minute workout every day, every day, no days off, every day, identity. But you've got to tackle two issues right after lockdown. What is everyone got now? Let's we've got our belly. The belly away, which is what the hills principle behind tense your burn the fat. They also go upon the muscle. Now you've got the right idea it, That's the second part. You got to build up the muscles as well. So these are your compound movements, your bench press or military press your deadlift, squat as well, which I know you've been push poll legs. Best thing you can do. The worst thing is yeah, I know it's kinda be James and I didn't pull an air forces even though I knew he did a workout and I will then heal. Sprints are going to be brown already. M increases. I should have war actually want to running shoes, but for some reason for an air force, skip it. So first I'm going to do is five minutes of skip and just to get warmed up, obviously, you don't have spring when you're not warmed up, but yeah, it's just warm up to get the muscles go ahead and get the blood flow to get the heart rate, breathing, which gonna do skip into maybe five, 10 minutes, half an hour. An hour often will say, Yeah, I will say just trying to get up the heart rate. Fabulous. Yeah. Yeah. I always say if you guys need any extra stretches, then you're going to do that. But right now I've done that before, focused, skipping and wound up, blood's fine. Now, this is like a walkout. I think during lockdown when everything was closed, a lot of our group was just mapping this out because it keeps you super lean. X-dot. Let's go, let's go, let's go. Let's print shop. Running backwards, strengthens their front underneath. It's makes them bulletproof. So when you warm up just to a few few laps running backwards, nothing serious. My camera is about to run out of charge. 11. Class Project: The class project. Welcome to the class project. Now over the last two hours, I've told you everything you need to know about Adobe Premiere Pro. And I've told you how you can not only add to your first video there, how you can make it high-quality. Now for this class project, what I would like you to do is take some footage. It could be a float, it could be a sit down and talk video. It could just be some random B-roll that you filmed of outside your house or any footage you have on your computer. I then want you to sit down and edit this footage in Adobe Premiere Pro strictly. And I want you to essentially think about what's going to make that good. I've talked about several things that's gonna make it good. The flow audio transitions, where this smooths out between the two clips. You obviously want to add motion graphics so that you can add that sort of snazzy elements, your videos takes the production quality are massively. And then there's stuff like color grading now a color grade. I told you exactly what you need to do in order to create a color grade. But obviously that's done in the lighting. So I have to think about the lighting and then how that's going to affect your color grade and so on. So there are a lot of elements to consider when editing a video. I've showed you most of them today. So cranial video, leave it in the class projects and discussion down any questions as well, common them in the discussion board. But leave your class projects linked down below. I'll, what I'll do then is I'll watch a video and then I'll give you lots of feedback whether it be placing the motion graphics in a different place, speeding up the video, because maybe the energy of the video drops. There's so much to think about. So have a go editing. Now you've got the tools to do it, and then I'll provide you with some feedback so you can learn and understand how to improve your video editing process. And I should sell this. If right now you have a go and you get stuck, don't worry about it. This is what it is. So for the easiest way to learn Adobe Premiere Pro, the easiest way to learn Adobe Premiere Pro, in my opinion, is all by trial and error iss over many years, you become a great editor. You'll learn everything. But right now for this project, this is just a sum and what you've learned in this class to your brain. And once you have that cemented, you take them to school with you. The more you use them, the better you get, the quicker you become. So have a go today, don't worry about anything. And suddenly the video down below, and I look forward to watching it. 12.
