Transcripts

1. Class Introduction: Well, hello there. It's nice to meet you. My name is Jodi and I'm a filmmaker and online teacher from Belgium which is that small little country in Europe, which has three languages and about six governments. That's a whole different story. You're here to learn Adobe Premiere Pro. Good choice. It's one of the leading video editing tools for professionals, you can basically do anything imaginable with it. So that's comes with many buttons, settings, bells and whistles and more. I started out with Premiere Pro, it was kind of overwhelming me. I didn't knew where starts, how things would work, it was just a big frustration. So that's why I decided to start teaching this program. I started giving classes about this editing program about 10 years ago. I've given tons of online Premier Pro classes, workshops and tutorials, and from all that experience I've gathered so much information from the students. I've talked to many of them personally to understand what their difficulties are at, which tools need to be explained and which doesn't. What's the best workflow and learning curve and it works, this is the fifth generation Premiere Pro class designed in such a way that you can start editing in no time, and it will be so much fun. We'll start off with the basic workflow. I want you to understand the mechanics of Premiere Pro so that you feel at home when you're using this program and then we'll start creating things. I'll show you how to edit your videos, use different effects, any needs custom designed text or graphics. We'll be looking at color collection and audio effects and by the end of the course, you'll be able to use the basic settings for every tool that a professional video editor uses. In this class, I'm not just going to show the information at you, we're going to do this together, meaning we are in direct contacts through the community. I'm going to give you some quizzes during the course to test your knowledge and so that you feel confident, so that you understand the information. Also be giving some hands on tasks. So in between two lessons, I might ask you to color correct eclipse, and then come back to the class. It's going to be a very interactive hands-on class. All the demo footage and project files that we'll be using throughout this class is also available to download from the project tab. You can use that for all the practices or film your own clips, of course. Now I'm very excited to learn Adobe Premier Pro together with you. Is already pretty awesome that you want to take this challenge, so let's kick it off. Let's start with editing professional looking video. 2. A Digital Video: Hi there. I'm so excited that you've signed up for this class. It's going to be really amazing what you'll be able to do by the end. Let's get straight into it. This lesson is the only one with theory, all the rest is practical. But before we can dive into Premier Pro, we first have to know some basic theory, so that we know what we are doing and to most importantly, know what's going on when something unexpected happens. We'll be talking about the basics of a digital video file. We'll be looking at resolution, frame rates, and image scan. If you already know these things, you can skip this lesson. But if that is all new to you, or you would just like to have a refresher, then please do stay as it is very important. A digital video file is that clip you drag off from your SD card, on which you've just filmed something. You can then double-click on it to open it and play the clip. But once we're going to modify it's work on this clip in Premier Pro, we have to know the properties of it. Let's start with the resolution. You probably heard about this before. You have high-definition, 4K, etc. These are names given to the actual size of the video. A digital photo or video is made up from pixels, small dots that represents one specific color. Because these dots are so small, we don't perceive them as a dot unless you would zoom into it. Having a photo or video with lots of these pixels will have a more blurry image as those pixels are becoming more noticeable. Having more of these pixels, meaning those dots are smaller, will result in a much sharper, more detailed video clip. Now back in the old days, we would talk about resolutions of 720 pixels by 576. This was the resolution that TV was broadcasted with on those old televisions. Today, that's no longer the case and we talk about high-definition, which is essentially anything above that old resolution. Your camera probably records in 1920 by 1080 pixels. Today, this is the most used resolution. Other dimensions are 1280 by 720, which is not used that often anymore. But 3840 by 2160 is. This resolution is called ultra high-definition, or just 4K. While that last one isn't exactly true, as there's a small variance with this resolution, which is used for cinema, but most people just refer to this resolution as 4K. Within this resolution, we can fit four times an HD clip. Just so imagine how large this is, and many cameras can actually record this. My smartphone can even do that and this class is also recorded in 4K. Does that mean that you're watching this in 4K right now? Well, not exactly. There's a big difference in the resolution we record in, and the resolution we export to. This class was shot in 4K resolution, but exported and then uploaded here to skill share in full HD resolution. We're talking about downscaling, which is done pretty often. Later in this course, you'll also see some benefits of doing this. Now can we also upscale? Yes, we can, but that's usually not such a great idea. If you would scale up an HD resolution clip to 4K, we have to magically find four times more pixels than there are. Luckily, modern software is good at that, but it will make your videos look soft and pixelated. Now we've been talking about one image so far, but as we all know, video is not one image. There are multiple images or frames in a sequence. Playing back these images gives us the impression of motion or video. We talk about frames per seconds. To trick our brain into believing there's actual motion, we only need 12 frames per seconds. This was actually the frame rate for old animation videos. If you still remember those, it was in motion, but not so smooth. Cameras shoot at a higher frame rate, but it's not everywhere the same. If you would go to the cinema, a film there is projected at 24 frames per second. Cameras in Europe and Asia shoot at 25 frames per second. In the US, you'll be shooting at 30 frames per second. Today, this difference doesn't matter that much anymore. It originated back when televisions had a refreshed rate, the same as the electricity net. Since the United States have electricity frequency of 60 hertz, they had to play back at 60 half frames or 30 full frames per seconds. We'll get into those have frames in just a second. In Europe and Asia, the electricity frequency is 50 hertz. Now people still shoot at their area's frame rate. Televisions also broadcast at those frame rates. But if you're making videos for yourself or for the internet, it really doesn't matter. Twenty four, 25 and 30 frames per second are the standard. But both cinema and internet platforms like YouTube have been experimenting with much faster frame rates. Usually, this is the double. For cinema that would be 48 frames per second. On YouTube, you can upload a video at 60 frames per second. This is called high frame rate and is considered to be more natural or closer to reality. Of course, just like with the resolution, you need to capture at those frame rates. You could digitally double your frame rates, but that would blur your video as those extra frame rates need to be generated. Downscaling frame rates, on the other hand, is a good idea. You could capture at 50 frames per second and export to 25 frames per second. The benefits of doing this is that you'll be able to stretch out your 50 frames per seconds to 25 frames per two seconds. In other words, slow motion. If you would do this with only 25 frames, you'll end up with an actual 12.5 frames per second, meaning that the playback will look sharper. That's why some cameras can shoot at 2,000 frames or even more per second, just to get that super smooth slow motion. I'll show you later down the road how to do this in Premier Pro as well. The final property is the image scan of a video. Earlier, we talked about how old CRT televisions would display their videos. 3. The Workspace: Welcome back guys. I hope that the quiz went well. In this lesson, we're going to launch Premiere Pro and take a look at its workspace so that you can get familiar with that. Let's head over here to the screen cast. Right here in My Doc, I have Premiere Pro installed and just going to click on it and that will launch Premiere. You'll first see loading screen and we'll be using Adobe Premiere Pro version 2018. Now f you have a newer version of Premiere Pro, maybe you're watching this in the future and you might have Premiere CC 2019 or 2020, doesn't matter. But Premiere Pro never drastically changes things within their updates. Usually they add small new features and after a couple of versions, when we believe that our class is outdated, we will make sure that we create a new class, or we might even update this current class right here, add some new extra lessons into it if we believe that is necessary. So right here inside Premiere Pro, the first end you'll always see is this start screen and from here you can start creating a new project or open a new project. The Team Projects is for an enterprise version. I'm going to assume that you don't have that. It's expensive and it's usually for teams of 10 or something. So we're going to take a look at the individual features which is either starting a new project or opening a project. We're going to click on Start a New Project. Now Premiere always wants you to first use the settings of your project, save it, and then you can start working inside of it. So let's go quickly through some of the more important settings and first up is the name, let's call this a walk in the park.That is going to be the project that I'll be working on. Then you want to choose a location where you would like to save this project and by default will always save that into your Documents folder, Bbut you want to be organized and this is something that we'll have a look at in the next lesson. For now, I'm just going to go quickly over this, but what you wanna do is click on Browse and that way you can browse through your Windows or in Mac. It's the same way and it's located folder where you believe this project file should get saved. So what I'm going to do here is actually head over to my desktop, because in here I already have a folder called a walk in the park. I've got a bunch of things in here like footage, images, music, and sound effects, but that is for later in this class. I'm going to say Select Folder, which one that I had opened right here, and now you'll see that the location is set to that folder. Furthermore, there's not really much settings that you have to pay attention to. Maybe this one setting right here, and this is the Render. If your graphics card in your computer is supported by the Mercury Playback engine, then you are able to select this option right here, Mercury Playback Engine, GPU accelerated. If you have that option, makes sure that it's selected, it will speed up your editing tremendously. Alright, let's like that option and hit Okay and that will launch premium approach workspace. All right, the first thing that you will see right now are tons of belts, tons of muscles. Don't worry too much. Here's how Premiere Pro is designed. Premiere has these different windows and I can just kind of click in it And you also see this blue light appearing around it, which means that that window is selected. We have the Program Monitor, here on top, you can see the name of that window. We have the timeline right here. Here we have the Project Window, but they're also sometimes different taps within each window. For example right here we can find that the media browser, we have libraries, we can even click right here on these two arrows, which will reveal some more tabs that are open within that window. Now each of these windows right here will serve you with a different functionality. If you need to do something, you might use a certain window and if you want to do something else. You might want to use a different window to get the results that you want. Now these are small panels or windows, and that means we can resize them by sitting here and this intersection and just dragging them larger or smaller. We can also change their position. For example, if you want to have here the effects controls window and we want to move this window right here to the program monitor, you can just drag that year from the top and insert it in here like that. Now here on top of the Program Manager, we see that we have two tabs, the Program Manager and the Effects Controls. What we can also do is, for example, here with the media browser, let's say that we don't use that window we can right-click on it and say Close Panel and that way we can close that panel. Having this functionality allows us to create a custom workspace that suits our needs. Now let's assume that we have accidentally closed the project panel right here, which is a very important panel. I'm going to right-click on it and say close panel. Now that window is gone but you want to recall it because it is an important window that we need. We can very easily do that by heading over to the menu and top select Window, from here you'll see all the available panels or Windows. We have closed the Projects panel and we can find that right here, Projects a walk in the park. Just click on that and that will reopen that window. If you would ever look for a certain panel or window, or you might have accidentally closed it you can always find it there in your top menu. Let's move a couple of stuff here around. I can drag this panel right here. I can enlarge it like that. I can move the toolbox to there, etc. At a certain point you might think, wow, this is a Mess. Why was I changing my workspace in such a way? I would like to reset it back to the default. Well, that is perfectly possible. Again, just head over to your menu here in tabs, select window, head over to Workspaces this time, and then below here, you can find the setting Reset to Saved Layout and that will reset everything back to its default.I see many students messing up their workspace and don't know what to do. Now you know that you can just head over to Window, Select to reset the layouts from there. Now on top right here this year is the Workspace panel. You'll see that we have different kinds of workspaces. Currently the editing one is selected, but we could also click, for example, on color that will change the workspace a little bit to a more setup for color corrections. We also have a workspace for effects. If you are going to apply and edit effects, you can click on that and then a workspace will change itself up again to be more user-friendly for that process. Now these workspaces can also be found here in tab and in the men, click on Window, head over to workspaces. Right here are all of those preset workspaces. But if you have something of yourself or you are working with multiple people on the same computer, you could also make a workspace that suits well for you and save that as your personal workspace. Let's see how we can do that. Let's change a few things here. I'm just going to drag a few things around. It isn't making much sense, but that doesn't matter for now. Let's just move these things over there and this over there. All right, let's say that this year is my ideal workspace. What I want to do now is head over to the menu and top again, select Window workspaces and say save as new workspace. Click on that, and now you want to give that new workspace a name, for example Jordy which is my name and press Okay. Now you will also see that my customer workspace sits within that workspace bar. So when my colleague who likes to work in the editing workspace and he's using his workspace, and then I'm going to take over the edits. I can just simply click on my name here on top and that will change your workspace to do on that. Now maybe later down the road, I believe that I want to change a few things to my workspace because now that I'm working more into its, I feel that, well, this panel here actually had to stand over there. That means that every time that I'm going to recall my workspace, it's actually going to recall the old workspace because I need to save my changes each time in my custom workspace. Again, we can do that from the menu on top, select the Window, head over to Workspaces and say Save Changes. to this workspace, the only the selected right now, click on it, and that's all you have to do. That's how workspaces work. Now one final thing if you are using this workspace panel here on top, many times what you can actually do to more customized this is, again, head over to Window Workspaces and right here head over to Edit Workspaces. Right here you can change the order of your workspaces by just dragging, for example, your name to the beginning, like so, orr you can also say, well, I don't want the libraries workspace, so you can just select that and press Delete like so. Then what I'm going to press Okay, you will see that my name, my workspace is now a France and that the libraries workspace is gone. That is how workspaces inside Premiere Pro works. It's something that you'll be playing with all the time, every time that you're going to need a different functionality. and you'll also see that throughout this class. No assignments here. Maybe play around with this workspace, save the workspace, mix some changes. Reset the whole thing. Collapse in different windows, try and play a little bit with the workspaces to get the hang of the mechanics. Thank you so much for watching. In the next lesson, we're going to import some footage here and there. We're going to actually use the functionalities of these different panels. 4. Organise Clips: Organizing your footage and then importing it inside Premiere Pro, that is what this lesson is going to be about. It's going to be something super important, whether you are a professional video editor or a hobbyist. Organizing your footage is a certain workflow and I'm going to show you guys my workflow today. Maybe you have a different idea in mind that is perfectly possible. It's just important that you have a workflow to organize your footage. Let's have a look here at the screencast on my desktop. I have a folder which is called "A walk in the park", and this is how I organize my footage. I would always create a folder. Within that folder, I have three separate folders, sometimes even more depending on a project, but usually it are these three folders. The first one is footage so in that folder, I have all my footage. These are the clips that I've shot and you can also download all of these clips right away from the project up here on Skillshare to also use these demo clips. Then I usually have a folder called assets or images and driving here I will put the images or icons, logos whatever, any kind of still that I would use in my edits. Then finally I would have music and sound effects and it's right here, we can find a bell sounds and an actual music clip. Sometimes when I have multiple songs and lots of sound effects, I would even break this up into two folders so one would be music and the other one would be sound effects. Finally, who would see this file right here? This file right here is something that we have created in the previous lesson. Remember that we had to create and save the project before we could open Premiere. Well, that is this file right here so whenever we are going to make changes to our edits or do stuff in our project, it will be stored within this project file. The reason why I put everything in the same folder, is that whenever I want to change this project with a colleague or with a friend or maybe take this to a laptop or to a different machine, it doesn't matter. I know that everything within my project comes with me so I'm never afraid that I would forget something to bring with me. A certain file that I shot extra or a certain logo that was sent to me afterwards and then I still head to my downloads folder. No. I always place everything within that one folder. That is how I organize. There are two ways to open up Premiere Pro. I can either double-click on this project file or I can just also just open up Premiere Pro like this. Let's just do it this way because once it's open, we again find that welcome screen right here. Before we didn't see anything right in here but now we do see our recent projects, which is a walk in the park. I can just click on that and that will open up my existing project and of course, it was empty. But let's import the footage that we had here in our folder. Importing and collecting your footage inside Premiere Pro, all happens within the project panel right here, and usually it sits in the bottom left of your program. There are multiple ways to import footage in here. You can start by double-clicking in this project panel like this, and that will open up your browser so that is one way. We can also head over to the menu on top, say file and then import and that will open up that same browser. But how I always would import my footage is by just dragging it into it. We live in 2018 so why not drag footage into our program and it's much easier than opening up these different windows and panels. Let's go back here to my folder where I have all my footage in and I'm going to open up the image folder and drag that image right here into that project panel like so. It will import it and now you can see that it sits inside your project window. Now, we have constantly been organizing in Windows. You have made different folders and all, and that is super. But you also need to organize inside Premiere Pro because we want to find our stuff whenever we are editing in here. We don't want it to be a big mess so what I usually do is just stick that same structure from my organization within Windows or a Mac doesn't matter, within Premiere. There are two ways you can do that. First up in your project panel, down below right here, you'll find a button which says "New Bin." I will just zoom in on that, this little button right here and it says New Bin. Click on that. That will create a new folder and we can give that any name, for example, images. In that folder I can drag in this image like so. Now, these are pretty big tiles. Maybe I want to view this as a list. It's sometimes easier to find your stuff in there if we have lots of footage and stuff and we can do that by changing the view down below here with these two buttons. Let me just zoom in back on this. We can switch to the List view or switch to Icon view. Let's click on switch to List View, there we go. Now we can just expand the image folder and right in there you can find the mountain photo. There's a second way to organize here inside Premiere Pro. Lets go back to our folder right here because what I actually have is also a footage folder and a music and sound effects folder. You know what I'm going to do? I'm just going to select both of them. You can do so right away by holding on your control key or a Mac, by holding down your commence key. I'm just going to drag these two folders inside Premiere, like that. It's importing the footage and right away, you'll see that Premiere Pro recognizes those folders as well so that means we don't have to create those bins anymore inside Premiere. It just takes over those bins, and it's right in there. You can find all of those files so we have here under music and sound effects our bell sounds, the music clip, and under other footage, we have all our clips. Now, let me enlarge this project panel for just a moment because when we are in List view, we can actually see the specifications of these clips here on the right side in different columns. All of our clips are shot in 50 frames per seconds and I can scroll here to the right side. You see some more information like how long is this clip. This clip right here is 9 seconds long. This one right here is 12 seconds, etc., and we can also find the resolution of that clip somewhere right here, the resolution so it's shot in 4K or ultra-high definition. To view one of these clips inside Premiere, you can simply just double-click on them and that will open up the clip here in the source monitor. You can see it's right here on top the source. Currently, clip number 1 is selected. Let me just enlarge this right here for a moment, like this. Now, by simply hitting your space bar, you can play that clip or pause it again. It's the same as with any other media player. Right away, now, you can see that each bell has its own functionality. This panel right here, the source monitor will play back the clips and then down below here, the project panel will collect everything that you can use in your edits. Now sometimes with music, for example, let me just open up that file, double-click on the music clip, you'll see that we don't really have a visual because it's not a video, it's a song. Then Premiere Pro will display this clip right here as a waveform. We can also play that and listen to the song, Etcetera. While I'm doing this, you might notice something going on here in the bottom right and already there, this right here is your audio meter. Again, a new functionality that we are learning here. This will display whether or not that your audio is clipping, but that is something for in the future of this class when we are going to mix the audio. This is all good and well, we can open up files, import it, but how do we start cutting them or editing them? Well, before we can do that, we first have to create a timeline or a sequence. Currently, you can see it's here on the right side. This here is our timeline, it says no sequences. In the middle you see, drop media here to create sequence so there is a very convenient way to create that sequence. We can just locate our footage and drag one of these clips, insides, this panel right here, like so. Let it go and that will automatically create a sequence. That sequence has the same name, you can see it here on top. Now, Clip number 1, and that is the name of the sequence, not of the clip, the name of the sequence. It automatically gave it that name because we use Clip number 1 to create that sequence. Premiere just used that name as well, but maybe you want to change that name of that sequence. What we can do is just right-click on that sequence and head over to Rename, right here. Click on that and say, "No, we can rename that to, for example, My Edit, there we go. The benefit of dragging your clips into the timeline to create a new sequence, is that your sequence settings are now equal to your source files or your clips. You can see it here in your project panel. Let me just zoom in on that, the sequence, My Edit, has a frame rate of 50 frames per second, the same thing as our clips. If you would scroll to the right side, if you're looking at the resolution of that sequence, you can also find that, that is the same as well. You've learned about this in one of the first lessons of this class. Now, let's say that we want to create a sequence with different settings to, for example, downscale, which we've also talked about. We can record any 4K resolution, but added any small sequence resolution. Then there are basically two ways to do that. We can right-click on our sequence that we have created, head over to sequence settings, we can open up this new window right here. From here, we can change, for example, the time base, which is 50 frames per seconds to 25 frames per seconds. We can also change the resolution right here, to a full HD, which is 1920 by 1080, there we go, now we are actually downscaling. We're going to keep the fields, which is progressive scan as it is. We also talked about this, we can choose upper field first, lower field first, and these two settings right here is the interlaced, which we are usually going to stay off from, and they just press "Okay". There's something that you might notice right now, is that in your program monitor right here, on the top right side, which is actually displaying your timeline here, we'll dive more into that later on, so don't worry too much. What you might be noticing here is that this clip has been zoomed in for some weird reason. Well, that is because we are sticking a 4K resolution clip inside a full HD sequence. Of course, our clips that we've shot are way bigger than the settings of the sequence and that is why, it seems like it's zoomed in,but in fact, it's just not fitting within that sequence.That was one way to create or change the settings of a sequence. Let me just right-click on this sequence and head over to Delete or Clear to remove that sequence. Let me just collapse this folder right here. I'm going to click here on the new item button down below here in my project panel, let me just zoom in on that as well, it's right here. The new item a button. A button that we'll be using more often throughout this class. When I'm going to click on it, it will reveal a menu of different items that are generated by Premiere probe that we can create and import into the program. On top you can see sequence, and that is how we can also create a timeline if there isn't one. Click on that, which will reveal a new window. This year are things that we have all seen in the beginning of this class. Right here, we can choose between some presets, pre-made settings within Premiere Pro that we can just select and start creating its sequence with. The most of these settings right here referred to specific cameras. If you are shooting on a Digital SLR. You can expand this folder right here to find rural settings for your camera. The premiere doesn't have 4K presets yet, so we can, for example, locate them in a different folder like the DNxHR. Right here you can find 2K, 4K, and also ultra HD presets to create a sequence. Now, let's create that full HD or 10 UHD sequence that we had in mind at first. We can find that underneath the Digital SLR folder and then right in here in the 1080P folder. We can find three different variations. This is also something that's, I talked about before in the beginning of this class is denotation of the resolution, the fields, and the frame rates. You can see it right here, 1080, which is the resolution full HD then the P stands for progressive, that unreleased progressive, and finally, the frame rate, which is 24, 25, or 30 frames per seconds, the most standard frame rates. I live in Europe, so I'm going to select 1080p25. When you select, you could also see it here on your right side, which the settings are. This is usually how you want to create a sequence, because you want to have control over what you are going to edit in and how you're going to export by the end of your edits. Keep in mind that there is not much difference between all of these different presets right here that you're seeing, so don't get too scared about that. Usually, you just want to go for that digital SLR sequence or for a DNxHR, if you want to edit any larger resolution like 4K or ultra HD, usually it's going to be ultra HD. Let's select that here, DSLR 1080p25, and I'm going to give this a name, My Edits, and press "Okay", there we go. At all times, you can right-click on your sequence, go into sequence settings and change those settings, so don't worry too much if you have selected something wrong and already started your edits within that sequence. Let's press again an "Okay" here, let's head over to the footage folder, and lets us drag in any of these clips into my sequence now, like so. Right away you will see that premiere will warn you, this clip does not match the sequence settings. Change the sequence to match the clip settings, yes or no. What premiere here it's asking you is that, we have created a 1080p25 frames per seconds sequence, but we have shut our Eclipse in 4K resolution, or actually an ultra HD at 50 frames per seconds, so they don't match. The source and the sequence doesn't match. Premiere here's asking you, "Do you want to change your sequence settings so that they match which are clip or do you just want to leave it as it is like you have created your sequence?" If you know what you're doing, you usually want to say, "Well, let's just keep the settings, because I know what I'm doing, I'm going to downscale, l'm going to export to a lower resolution." Let's just say that and now it won't adapt. That's how you should organize your footage. Remember to keep everything within one folder threads, so that you won't miss any clips, how to import your footage and also keep organizing that in premiere itself as you create sequences and change its settings and also understand the settings. What I want you to do now is create a sequence, import these demo files may be import something of your own, doesn't matter. Try and drag your clips and therein change the settings and see how Premiere reacts to the settings that you are creating. Thank you so much for watching, and I'll see you in the next lesson where we'll start actually editing our Eclipse. 5. Basic Editing: Welcome back guys. This lesson is going to be pretty exciting because we are going to actually edit our videos now for the first time. So here again, inside premier pro of course, and I already had my stuff imported inside Premier here in my project panel. Let's start by opening one of our clips. I'm going to expand the footage folder, and let's, for example, double-click here on clip number 12. Double-clicking on that clip will open it up in the source monitor here on top, and from here we can play that clip. We have a Play button right here that will display the clip as it is. We can also stop that. You can also take the play [inaudible] you scrup through that video. I believe that this is not something new. It's something that we are used to when just using a normal media player. But there are a few things right here which are a little bit different than a media player. Right here you can see a drop down menu which says a half. We can click on that and we can choose from full a half, a quarter and one eighth, and that is the playback quality. If you have trouble playing back your clips writing here in you source monitor, you can change that to a different resolution. Of course, at full, it will display the entire resolution, and thus it's sometimes not so easy for your computer to handle that. So if you are noticing choppy playback, change that to a half, or maybe a quarter, or even one eighth. We can also find some time indicators here on the left side and on the right side. If you are going to scrub through that clip, you'll see here on the left side some very weird number, no five hours, 20 minutes, 35 or 37 seconds. What is that all about? Well, that is your time code and usually you can ignore that. So don't worry too much about that. If you are going to sync up multiple cameras and such, then time codes will get importance. But if you are just going to edit individual projects, then don't worry too much about that left side. This right here is you clip length. It's 21 seconds and six frames long. So it's a bit more than just 21 seconds, and that way you always instantly know how long that clip is. Then there's one last drop down menu that I want to show you guys, and it's right here. It says fits, and that is the zoom level of our video inside the source monitor. We can, for example, change that to 10 percent, and now we are zooming out. As I'm going to rescale that window, it will always stick at that 10 percent. When I'm going to say at 100 percent , it's a 4K file, so that is actually larger than the actual [inaudible]. That way we can zoom in digitally on that clip. By the way, we are still viewing our source. We're not editing yet, keep that in mind. So this is not to zoom in into the clip. Let's change that back to fit, and fit means it will always change its size to the panel white. So I can just change the size here of that panel and you can see that the clip will adjust itself. So that is the basic functionality of the source monitor just to playback your clips, and that is going to be a very important window. We're going to use this very often. Let's go back to a project panel down below here, also a panel that we'll be using very often. What I'm going to do is create a sequence because I've deleted to one that I had created in the previous lesson. I'm going to click on the new item button down below here to create a new sequence, and I'm going to take that 10 ADP 25 frames sequence. Let's just name that again my edit. Press "Okay", there we go. So we have an active timeline now, because we have created a sequence. That is good. Now let's go back to that source monitor right here. We have opened up clip number 12, and what we can actually do now is bring this source here into our timeline. We can do so very easily by just dragging that entire clip like this. I'm drawing it right now into the timeline, and we've seen this in previous lessons. Well, premier will ask us whether or not you would like to change the sequence settings, and I'm just going to say keep the existing settings. Now you'll find that there is like a fourth window which is asking for some attention, and this right here is the program monitoring. The difference between a program monitor and the source monitor is that the program monitor resembles the timeline. So that will show everything that we're playing in the timeline. Again, if you have your timeline active, just click in it. Press the space bar to play that clip. You're now looking at that clip in your edits. So you would make changes to this clip right here. You would see these changes in our program monitor, and it's not any source monitoring. This will only here resemble the stuff that we're seeing out from our project or the source panel. So that is something very important to understand how that works. I know that for some who are coming from things like iMovie or Windows Movie Maker really only have that one screen that this could be a little bit overwhelmed. But eventually having these two monitors is actually very convenient. You just have to understand that we have a source and a program monitor or the results. Now looking at the program monitor, we can basically see the same buttons here as well. We can play that video, we can stop it. We can also use these buttons right here to step one frame forward, just per-click. You will constantly step one frame forward or one frame backwards. We had that same button here in your program monitor as well. We also see that resolution size right here, and you might think, why do we have that twice? If we choose for a certain play black resolution, can we just choose that for everything? Well, that's because usually your source clip are not that heavy. I mean, we can set that for example, at full into a playback just smoothly as we want like this. But if we are going to edit videos and if we're going to put lots of effects onto our clips, then it might not play back that smooth anymore. Then you might want to change your program monitor to a lower resolution to make sure that these clips playback more smooth. So that is like the main difference between these two panels. All right, let's have a look at a problem that we are running into. It seems like the clip here in our timeline or in the program monitor has been zoomed in. We've talked about this before. We are sticking a larger resolution file, a 4K resolution, into a 10 ADP sequence, which is much smaller. It doesn't fit them there. So how can we fix that? Again, we've talked about this before as well. We can downscale this clip. That is simply done by right-clicking on that clip in your timeline, like so, and then down below somewhere when you scroll down. We can say set to frame size, and that will change that clip to the frame size of the sequence. Click on that and it will adapt to it. This way we are down scaling, we are putting much more information, much more detail into a smaller sequence, which is a plus point. Hence later down the road you'll also see some more advantages of doing this. All right, we have our clip in a timeline, but what I'm going to do now is select that and press the delete key on my keyboard. Because this is not really a good way to edit videos. Let's go back to that footage folder right here. What it can do, for example, is double-click on the folder itself, and that will open it up in a new tab right here on top. I can also drag that tab to a different location. So let's say you don't want it to have it next to my project tab, like that. To the root folder where I have all my folders, and then next to it, I have my opens bin folder. Because I might want to change my view here to the icon view like that. So they can see the shots that I've shot. So you can see visually which shots that I'm picking out. The cool thing about premier here is that we can actually hoover these shots, and by hoovering it, we are already playing it back. So that is pretty cool. So that way we instantly know, okay, these are the shots that I need. So let's have a look here. This here is the first short, clip number one. This is something that I want to drag into my sequence. Is this the right shot? Yes. That's the right one. So I'm going to double-click on it to open it up in the source monitor. What I'm going to do now is actually only take out the part from this source that I need, and drag that to my sequence. The rest are already cut off from the source, and there's pieces and the way it's cutoff is, for example here all the way in the beginning where I'm telling Kim, and that you'll see her more often through out this class. She is going to be our lovely model to start walking. So only at the point where she starts walking, I want to let this clip start. Otherwise before that, I don't want to use. So what I'm going to do here is set an endpoint, and that way am telling to premier, all right, from here, from this, you can start using that clip, and there are two ways to set that endpoint. You can either click here on the mark in button in your controls here from the source panel. Let's just click on that, and as you can see, it has now created a selection of that clip. Or another way to deal with is also press the I key on your keyboard, and that stands for end point. Now let's move further. Because I want to use this whole walk here of Kim. She's waving like this, and right here, I want to stop that selection again. So now we can just press the O key on my keyboard or the outpoint. Or you can also use this button right here, which says mark out. Now you can see that we have made a selection of that clip. What will happen now when I'm going to drag this source clip here to my timeline, is that it will only take that specific selection. Let's just say keep existing settings for now. I'm also going to right-click on that clip and set it to the frame size like so. Let's play this clip now of the entire eclipse just hit the space bar like so. You will see now that we've only dragged in that specific part of that clip into the timeline. That way we're already editing a bit, we are throwing away the stuff that we don't need. We are making some pre-selection and that is going to help us more with the edit later on. Now a question that I always get to hear from my students is, did I just changed something to the source of my clip? Well, whenever you are editing site premier, you're never making actual changes to your source clip. Keep that in mind. Don't worry if you are deleting clips in here. If you are changing or selecting with these intermediate points or making any edits, you are never actually touching the source files. Let me demonstrate this to you. We have just made a selection of that clip. Now let me go back here to that same clip in the source panel. What I'm going to do is make another selection. Let's say that I only want to have the wave of Kim right here. Well, I'm going to do is set an end points like that. Go a bit further in time until he stops waving and set an out point. If made a different selection now as that I did previously. What I can do now is drag that clip again in my timeline. That means I can keep making selections, different selections from the same clip and keep dragging that to the timeline, because sometimes you want to use multiple parts of the same clip. Let's have a closer look here at the timeline, whats going on here? We can see tons of things going on in here. Let me explain what we're seeing. First of all, I'm going to zoom in a little bit more into my timeline. We can see this scroll bar, which we can scroll over to the left and the right. But even going to take the outside of that scroll bar, I can actually do zoom in into that timeline like so. I can also enlarge the tracks because we can see two tracks in here, horizontal and top here is the video track and you also see it here on the left side it says V1, V2, V3. You can see this as layers if you are familiar with Photo-shop or you can also work with different layers in Photo-shop. Here we can also work with different tracks in Premier Pro. So all the V's are video tracks. Then below that we can see all the audio tracks with the letter A. This clip right here has some video and it has some audio. Now we can enlarge that a little bit when we are going to work more specific on that clip. It could be a little bit more useful. What it can do is you stand here on the left side in this column right here, with my mouse, hold down the Alt key on your keyboard and you scroll. That way you are expanding that track. The same thing can also happen with the audio track like this. Now let's say that you have a clip. Let just take out another one right here. For example.this one where Kim was walking here and a close-up. Let's just make a selection of that's where she walks little bit goofy here. I'm going to make an endpoint will be further in time to make an out point and their go. Let's assume that I only want to have the video track of this layer where they can then do is instead of dragging this entire frame rate here is only drag this little icon right here, and this right here represents the video track only. It also says it right here, drag video only. Just drag that icon into your timeline like so and now you can see that the only dragged in the video track of that clip. The same thing can be done with the audio of that clip with this icon next to it. Drag audio only. Drag that into your timeline like so and there we go. Now of course we can rearrange, drag round these clips inside the timeline. Let's do that for a moment. I can just grab this clip right here and move that to the right sites. Grab this other clip right here and perhaps move that to track number two, we can also work with different tracks or layers. Take this one right here, move that perhaps below that other clip, and so on. You can just keep on moving these things in the timeline. With this, we can change the order of the clips and make an edit. Let's have a look at what we have in here. First, we had Kim walking. As she starts waving rights here, we might want to cut to a close up of her. Now, just like with layers delivered at a sits on top is the one that we see. You can see here that I have dragged in a difference clip below the second track. We can't see that clip because we have this one here on top. If you want to see the one below, we have to make room for that. So drag it back to the right site and now we can't see that one which was down below. That should be simple to understand. You can see it as stacking papers on top of each other. The paper that you see is always one that is laying on the top not to one that is laying on the bottom. Now we've been making the selection straights here in the Source panel. Does that mean that we can't change the selection anymore? Well, of course not. It's an editing program. The selections that we make here in the source monitor is usually a very rough selection so that we can just start editing with already the stuff cutoff that we don't need. Then in a timeline that we're going to fine tune. In other words, we're going to trim the clips even more. Let's have a look at an example. I'm going to delete this second clip right here that I've also inserted and move the clip number one here to the track below. Let's have a look at that clip. So Kim right here, she's walking and suddenly she starts waving like that. Then I have a second clip right here and let me just lift it high. I don't need that. Also going to scale that to the frame size like this. Right here we have a clip of Kim also walking and waving as well in a close-up. What I want to do now is align these two clips so that they match up with each other. Right here, Kim, is walking in the long shot and she starts waving, I want to cut to the close-up of her waving. That means that the rest of the shots here Is that really needed anymore. There are two things here to cut that off. The first way is by trimming a clip. That can easily be done by just standing here on the outside of that clip and dragging that outsides to my player hats like so. Now what I'm going to play this clip, you'll see that it's stops just at a point as she starts waving like that. That's perfect because at that point, I'm going to cut to her close-up, which is this clip right here. Let me just drag that clip here next to it, like so. That's clip here starts actually with Kim first walking and then she starts waving. What I can do is just trim that again, larger. We are making our selection longer. Dig the outsides and drag that longer like this. We're not stretching it or anything. We are just changing the in and out points, so well, let's look a bit further. Let's say that somebody right here, this clip has to start. We're going to stretch that's back to a plate like this and then move that clip next to the long shot like so. Let's play the entire thing right now, so Kim is walking and a long shot, she starts waving and we cut to that medium shots like so maybe it was a bit too short, but I guess that you know how it works. We can always change our selection afterwards, but just taking the outsides of the clip and dragging it longer or shorter. Let's double-click on a different clip again, for example, clip number seven. I'm going to make a selection in here as well. So Kim here is walking, set an endpoint, go a bit further. and science seven out points right here, just has the only moment where she's falling here. What I'm going to do is, for example, only dragging the video.I'm going to drag this, let's say accidentally over that other clip like so. Does that mean that we have lost that piece of that first clip because we have overwritten it. We want to have her walk a bit longer in this close up, but we cut off that piece with that third clip that we've dragged in. Well, no worries about that. We can always make room again. Drag that third clip a little bit to the side, trim your second clip a bit longer again, and move that third clip back to the play heads. As you can see, you can move clips around, you can trim clips, you can overwrite clips, but it's all time you're actually only making a selection. You are never really actually cutting into that clip. We're talking here about making selections, using selections and adjusting that selection in your timeline. One of the things that you might have also noticed is that when I'm dragging these clips around, that they snap against each other here you can also see that right here is also indicating limited zoom in a bit more here on this, when I'm driving that clip, it snaps against that other clip like so. That is because I have my snapping tool enabled. We can locate that snapping tool up here with this magnet. It also says snap right there. I'm going to zoom in on that as well. This snap tool, it's activated because it's blue, but I'm going to click on it, it's deactivated. Right now what I'm going to drag clips around, they will not snap anymore to other clips, as you can see. Sometimes that is useful other times, it's more useful to have your snapping tool enabled. Now let me enlarge that timeline here for a moment like this. What I'm going to do is just drag and a few more clips. Let's just drag them right away into it and track number one. There we go. double-click on a different one, drag that on track number two ends maybe one more, this one, clip number 11 also drag that into the timeline, track number two as well. Let me just zoom out a little bit more on that timeline. We have a bunch here on track number one and a bunch on track number two, which we can by the way, also enlarge holding down your old scheme and scrolling insights did track here on the left side like so. Let's think here about a few scenarios. Let's say that I have a good edits on track number 1 , and I do not want to touch that anymore. I'm afraid that I would touch that and mess it up again. What I can then do is lock that layer. Here on the left side of view track number one, we can find this little lock right there. If we click on it, that layer is locked, which means we cannot take those clips anymore, drag them around. We can also not overwrite them with other clips. As you can see, that track and everything within it is locked. Once is back safe, we can delock that track again. That can be done by the way for any track you can find here it is also for threat number two and three and so on. The same thing goes for the audio tracks. Then the last thing that I want to show you guys in this lesson is how you can enable or disable tracks within Premier Pro. You can see it as if you have a stack of papers and then you would always see the top paper. But what if you want to look or peak at the paper below that, what you can then do is for a brief moment, disable the first layer or the first paper to peak below that and see what's beneath that. Insight premiere here in our timeline, we can also do that. I have put number five rights here on a video track number two. As I'm playing this here, everything on my timeline, I would only see that clip as you can see. But what if I want to see that stuff below that. That means clip number 12. Well, what I can then do is disable track number two for a brief moment. That is done by clicking here on this eye icon, which says toggled track output. Click on that, which will disable that track for a moment and now I can view everything below that. When I say, okay it is looking good. That has enabled that again. That is how the basic workflow in Premier Pro work to edit your videos, you make a rough selection of your source clip , drag that to your timeline on which you can then fine tuner clips more. You can trim your clips, move them around to different tracks and positions. But I want you guys to do now is make a small edits with clips provided or you can also use clips that you shoot yourself and try to switch between long shots, medium shots, etc. Play around with his position with a timeline, with a trimming and all that kind of stuff. Practice with that and then I'll see you guys in the next lesson, we will dive into the more advanced techniques to editor clips, and we'll do that by using the toolbox. 6. The Toolbox: Welcome back folks. I hope that you've played around a bit in the timeline, so that you get used to the mechanics in there, because right now will be looking at the toolbox, and these are some more advanced editing techniques inside premier. A toolbox can be located right here usually next to your timeline, if you can't find it, you can always locate that through the menu on top select window and from there select tools,so once that is enabled you can find this box right here. The toolbox consists Adobe multiple tools, and those tools can be used on your clips inside the timeline. Let's drag on a clip to the timeline, let's start with clip number 1 right here that look like on it. Set an endpoint and an out point, and then drag that clip to your timeline, let me just zoom in a little bit more on it, because the first tool that we're going to take a look at is the razor blade tool, and that razor blade tool can be found right here. The shortcut for it is c. So if you are getting used to all of these tools, it also best to get started knowing these shortcuts that way you can edit a lot faster. Let's just click on that button. The razor blade tool is now active. That allows me, as you can see with this tool, cuts in this clip right here. You can also see here where that cut is going to be at. Let's cut into half right there, and what we've actually done now is separated this clip into two parts. Each of these two parts have a difference in and out points. At all time we're actually just changing its selection we're never really cutting pieces off from a clip. This means that we have two clips right now. Let me take back the arrow tool here on top, which allows me to move around these clips and let me put these two clips here on top of each other. Then look what happens when I'm going to take back my razor blade tool. What I can do is stand on one clip and that allows me to cut that one clip or the other, as you can see, but when I'm going to hold down my shift key on my keyboard it brings up this super razor blade tool. What that allows me to do is cut all the clips on that position. That means all the clips on every track. If we click right now, all the clips on track two and on track one will be cut on that location. Let's assume that you've made a wrong cut. We're just like with any other program in Windows or a Mac, you can undo your actions, and that's simply done by pressing Control Z and mark that'll be Command Z. All right, let's take back that arrow tool now or that selection tool. Since it's something that we use a lot, it's best to know the shortcut of it as well. That is the shortcut V by default. So just press that on your keyboard and that will bring back your normal selection tool. The next tool that I want to take a look at, is this one right here, which is the track select tool. Click on that and you will see that your cursor now will change in these two arrows as you can see when I zoom in that these two arrows right here. What that will do is if you're clicking in a timeline now will select everything from that point. That way you can move everything with one click forward. Let's add a few more clips here to the timeline in that way can show it better to you guys. I'm also going to add clip number 2 here to the timeline. Let's make a selection like that just going to move that right here. I'm just selecting here a few clips. It doesn't matter what I'm doing right now. I'm just filling up the timeline. See it as that. This point right there. Let's add one more, perhaps like this. There we go also using track number 3 now. Now let's add a few cuts in here. I'm going to take my razor blade tool and just going to add a few more cuts in here, that way I can show it to you guys better. What's going on in here? Like this. All right, let's take back that track selection tool. Like I was saying everything from this point where my cursor is at will be selected and everything will be selected. Let's click again. There you go. Everything from this point, from all the tracks are selected and I can just drag them to the right side now.You can also take them, move them back. Let's move our cursor a little bit more to the right side so everything from this point will be selected. That is how the tracks select tool works. Let's assume that you only want to select one track and move everything from the cursor to the right side. Well then just like with the razor blade tool, you want to hold down your shift key, and now you can also see that that arrow right here is changing from two to one and one means only one track. Hold down your shift key and stand anywhere in your timeline to move an entire track to the left, or you can also select everything from that point in your track and move it to the left side like this. This tool is very convenient to move big chunks of clips to the right or to the left side. Now in this tool here in your toolbox, you'll see this little arrow here down below. That means that there are some more hidden tools underneath that. You can bring those up by just holding down your mouse-click like this. And there is a variant on that track selection tool. We were just using the track select forward tool, but there's also a track select backward tool, select that one. This one just works exactly the same but backwards. So with this now we can select everything from this point to the left side, like this, or by holding down your shift key, everything from that point only on that track is now selected. That is how the track select tool works. It's just a very convenient way to select clips. Definitely if you have a long edit because lets me take back that selection tool. You can also just hold down our mouse-click and then select multiple clips like this, but if you have like a very large edit, it's usually more convenient to use that track selection tool. In the previous lesson we've already seen that we can take one of the outsides of the clip and trim them, which means making them smaller in length or just changing its selection or we can also make them longer, like that, changing that endpoints, but as you can see, the beginning point of that clip is changing each time. First it was standing right here and then I'm trimming it to the right side. Now that clip is standing over there, but let's assume that we've made an edit and we don't want to change its position of that clip. What we can then do is stick the next tool in line right here, that is the ripple edit tool. Click on that. When we go to stand on one of the outside of a clip right now, you'll see that it appears as a yellow trim tool. That allows us, for example, to make this clip larger like this, and when I'm going to let go, you will see that it pushes your entire edit forwards, but it will keep that beginning point right here in your timeline. We can also make that smaller like this, and that will push the entire edit next to it back to that beginning points so again, a tool that is very convenient to use, but only in the beginning, you might not be using all of these tools because it's pretty overwhelming at the beginning, it is easier to make a few more clicks to get your edit done, but know that it is there. Once you get more to hang of these edit techniques inside the timeline, you can start experimenting with these tools and along the way, you'll find out that it's actually more easy to use these tools. All right, under that ripple edit tool, we can find some more things like the rolling edit tool. This one here is pretty cool. We have a cut right here in clip number 6. If you are going to play this, you'll see that not much will happen here in your program monitor. That is because we just took the entire clip and just made a cut. We've done nothing more with this clip right here, but let's say that we've [inaudible] That's cuts. We actually wanted to have that cuts somewhere right here. Now instead of taking our Trim tool right here with the Arrow tool, moving this cut to the left side, and then moving the cut of this second clip as well back to that point like this, which is again too many steps, we can just take that Rolling Edit tool and you stick that cuts and move it to the position where we want. It's that simple. We can use that with any cuts and we can do that with anything. Let's take my Selection tool here again, what I'm going to do here is take clip number two, move it a bit to the side right here, and let's take clip number 14. These are two different clips right here. Kim right here she's talking, she's rubbing her hands together, and in the second charge she is walking. I want to change this cuts, but here is what's going to happen. I'm going to take that Rolling Edit tool, and I'm going to move this sketch right here to the left side. While doing this, you can see in the program monitoring as well, what's happening to the in and the out points. The left image is showing the last point of the first clip, and the right image is showing the first frame or the first point of the second clip. That way you know where your edit is going to be. Let's say that I want clip number two to end where Kim is starting to rub her hands, which is right here, because here she's starting, but that is going to be cut off, so let's take that right here. Let me just drag this a bit larger straight, you might see it a little bit better. For a clip number 14, we want Kim to start walking right here where she has her feet up like that. Here I'm just going to let go and it's right now you'll see that we don't see Kim rubbing her hands anymore, because we have moved that edit points. With one tool, we are actually changing the out points of the first clip and the in points of the second clip. Let's have a look at what we can else finds here within this menu. We also have the Rate Stretch tool. This one is pretty cool actually. We can see Kim right here walking and what the Rate Stretch tool will do, is that we can take the outside of the clip and drag it longer. Now we are not changing the out points right now, we are actually stretching out that clip. So let go and when we go to play back this clip right now you'll see that we have a slow motion shot of Kim walking. We could also compress that clip by taking the outside again, like this and now Kim will walk super-fast, like this. Then there is a way a tool to speed up or slow down your clips, and there is actually another way to do it if I'm going to take back my Selection tool, and that is by right-clicking on your clip and it's heading over to Speed/Duration. That will open up this window right here in which you can set the percentage of the speed increasement that you want or of course the decreasements. Now we have shot everything at 50 frames per seconds. That means if we were dragging this clips into a sequence of 25 frames per seconds, we have the bubble amount of frames available. That way we know that we can set the speed to 50 percent, which is exactly the half of the speed of that clip, in order to get a very smooth slow motion. Let's press OK, and let's have a look at it. This right here is a very smooth slow motion, we are stretching our 50 frames per seconds over to 25 frames per two seconds. Next up on line is the Slip tool right here. Let me just click on that, is also a pretty convenient tool. Right here we have a clip of Kim and she looks like this in the first frame, and in the end she looks like this where she is rubbing her hands, but we want to leave that off that she's rubbing their hands. However, we do like to keep the length of the clip. In other words, we just have to move up the in point to the left and the out point as well to the left. We can again start trimming this clip, but with the Slip tool, it's just much more convenience. We can just stand in the middle of that clip and click and drag to the right side. Now you will see here the first framing on the left in your program monitor and the last frame on the right side. We're going to move this right before Kim is lifting up her hands like this, and then let's go. Now that's clip keeps it's duration, we've just changed the in and the out point. Let's play that again, now we can see Kim coming in and we cut away right before she lifts up her hands. The next tool that we'll have a look at is the Slight tool. But for that, I'm first going to clean up my timeline, I'm just going to delete everything. You can select everything by the way, by pressing Control A. This also works in any other application on your Windows and for Mac users they'll be Commands A. That will select everything, now just press Delete to remove it all. I'm just going to drag a few clips back to the timeline, so let's see, this part right here, something from clip eight perhaps. Let's also set an in and out point like this, move that to the timeline and perhaps this shot as well here, where Kim here is looking at her feet like that, like so. Now we have 1, 2, 3 clips in our timeline, let me just zoom in a little bit more on that. Now let's say that we have made this edit with a bunch of tracks as we don't really want to move clips around anymore. We want to keep its position, but we do want to change clips around. Well then here is where the Slight tool comes in, which can be found under that menu right here, the Slight tool. What that allows us to do is actually grab a middle clip or any other clip and change its position. I'm going to move this clip right here to the left side like that. But as you can see, the right clip here, clip number nine will keep sticking to that clip because it doesn't want to create these gaps. The same thing happens with clip number 14. It's changing it's out points and with clip number nine, it's changing its in points, but clip number eight will stay intact, so nothing happens with that or we can just move that to different positions, and the only thing that happens are changes of in points and out points, that's the only thing. Though guys, I do have to mention that I don't use all of these tools myself either. These tools are there and some people like to use some of these tools and others not. It's really a personal choice, but it's important that you know that they are there and that you know what they are capable of. There are a few more tools that I want to cover, the next one is actually the Pen tool here in line, but I'm going to leave that for one of the next lessons when we are going to talk about text and graphics. Then we've got the Hands tool, the Hand tool is nothing special, it actually allows us to grab the timeline like this and scroll through it. But what I like to do more is just use my mouse and just scroll to the left and to the right. It's a little bit more convenient than using that Hand tool. Then finally, we've got the Text tool, which again is something for later in this course. These were the basic tools of Premier Pro, hope that it wasn't too overwhelming for you. But just like I said previous, don't mind it too much in the beginning, know that they are there and by time you will see that you will start using certain tools and others may be nice. Important to know maybe as a final conclusion to this toolbox, what you're always doing is changing in and out points, you not really making drastic modifications to your clips. These tools are there to modify the in and out points of your clips, in other words, the selection. Next up, I have a little quiz for you guys, it's best to take that quiz to test yourself to the basic things that you've just seen here in this class, to using the in and out point selection, the project's panel, the source monitor right here, the program manager, the timeline and it's different tracks, and of course the tools from the toolbox. Good luck with that quiz, and then we'll see you back in the next lesson, where we'll start to use video effects. 7. Video Effects: Welcome back guys. In this video lesson we're going to take a look at how to use effects but first we're going to take a look at how we can change the properties of a clip. By that I mean the scaling, position et cetera. Right here in my timeline you can see that I have a clip of camera feed, I was trying to make a point of view shot of her, but I accidentally also shot my own feet. What I want to do is zoom this clip a little bit so that my feet are off. In order to do that, I have to head over to the effects controls which we can find right up here. By default it sits right there, but if you can't find that window, let me just click on that, you can also head over to the window again and search for the effect controls right there. Opening up this window, you can see that it says, No clip selected. That means that we have to select a clip, of course, in order to use this panel. Let's select the right here, clip number 9 and now, you can see that some properties will appear within this window. Now, we can find two categories in here. We have the "Video Effects" and we've got the "Audio Effects" of that clip. Because the audio and the video right in here are linked together, we can also see both of them. But let's drag in quickly only the video layer of this shots right here into the timeline, let's go back to the "Effect Controls" and now select clip number 9, this right here with only the video track, then you won't see those audio effects. Let's get back to that first clip right here. Under the "Video Effects," we can find several categories. Let's start with the motion. You can expand that. Right in here we can find some basic properties of that clip, such as the position and we can change that position by just changing the values right here. By clicking and dragging this value to the left side or to the right side, you can see that we can change that value and also change the position of that clip. The other value right here is the vertical movements. That way we can change the position of our clip, and this is sometimes pretty cool if you are working with multiple clips. For example, let's bring in a second clip, this one right here, clip number 8. Let's drag only the video layer to track number 2, and what I'm going to do right now is click on clip number 8, head over to the "Effects Controls" again and offset that position like so. You can see that the track below will reveal itself because we are moving it to the right side. Knowing this, we can view multiple shots within one framing, use multiple layers and just offset their position. Let me just delete that clip again, like so, let's focus on this one right here. Let's assume that we had accidentally changed the position and we want to reset that back to the default. What we can then do is easily press here on the "Reset" button on the right side. There we go, and that will reset those values. Now, you can see that we have tons of these values here, we also have scaling. We're just pretty obvious, we can scale the clip like this, and also again, we can reset that value, we got a rotation like that, we also have an anchor point, and the anchor point is actually the point where the clip has to rotate around. To show that visually to you, what you can do with the motion property is selected here on top, and that way, we can visually change it in here in our program monitor. You can see that the wire frame comes around this clip right here and that means I can just take that wire frame like this, make it smaller, drag it to a different position et cetera. Though I know that I can select the motion property and do this visually because there's this small little icon next to it. We'll see that later on as well when we're going to work with effects. It's this little icon right here next to the motion property and that tells me that I can select that property and change these values visually in my program monitor. Let me change that anchor points. I can do that either right here by just changing that value and you can see right now that that middle point right here is getting a different location. So it can send it all the way to the left side, for example, like that and now, when I'm going to change the rotation, it'll rotate around that point and not anymore around the middle of the clip. That is what the anchor point does. Now, if you have changed many of these values right here and you'd like to reset everything with one click, then you can also reset the entire motion property here on top by pressing on this "Reset" button next to it, like that. Like you were saying, my feet is in this shot, so what I want to do is zoom in a tiny bits, you can change the value right here, just increase that like that, and then my feet are off. In other words, I've cropped my feet off this shot. Let's collapse that property right here and let's have a look at the next one, opacity. The opacity is pretty straight forward, we can decrease the opacity or increase the opacity. What we're actually doing is making the clip transparent. Again, to show this better to you, what I'm going to do is drag another clip, let's again take clip number 8 right here, drag that on video channel number 2, like that, select clip number 8, head over to the "Effect Controls, " and from here I'm going to decrease the opacity of that clip. Now, you can see that we are revealing both of these clips in one shot. There is also a function to blend this clip in a specific way with the clip below. Let's put the opacity back to 100 percent like that. Below that we can see the "Blend Mode." Internally, it says normal, which is actually no blending mode. But when I'm going to click on that, you'll see that we have many options from a drop-down menu. We can, for example, set this to multiply and that will blend this clip in a specific way with the clip below. There are also other blending modes like, for example, this one right here, linear dodge, like that, this one blows out a bit more, we also have some different things like subtract, which will make it negative et cetera. It's something that you can experiment with and see what these settings do. I'm going to delete this clip right here and the one on top, and let's focus again here on click number 9, because what I want to do now is add extra effects to this clip. We have seen the default options of the clip which is a scale position anchor point et cetera, but there are also creative effects and those creative effects can be found in our "Effects" library right here, which is again another window which gives us some more functionalities. Again, if you can't locate that window, head over to the "Window" menu here on top and select effects right here. This right here is a library full with effects that we can drag onto our clips. We can either expand these folders right here and look for a specific effect that we want, for example, under the distortion, we can find magnify, and we can drag this onto our clip like so. With having that clip selected, you'll now see under the effects controls that that magnify effect has been applied to that clip as well. It also gives us a bunch of options which we are used to. It works again the same way. We can change a certain value in here, we can see what it does in our program monitor or we can also reset that value at anytime. This works exactly the same as with the basic properties of that clip underneath the motion. Though what does magnify effects will do, for example, let's say, let's increase that size of that magnification like so. Now, we can increase the magnification itself and that way we can zoom into our clip on specific points. Though, like I said before, I know from the motion property that I can click on that and visually change my settings with any program monitor. This magnify effect also has that little icon next to it, as you can see right here. That way I know I can select this effect, [inaudible] program monitor and visually change something of that effect like so. To delete an effect, simply click on it and hit the "Delete" key on your keyboard. It's that simple. Let's say that you are looking for a very specific effect in your effects library. Do have to scroll through all of these folders? Of course not. We can just use the search bar on top. Let's type in here ''blur'' because I want to blur my image. Let's scroll down until it finds the "Gaussian blur", which is a standard blur effect, which is also used very often. Let me just drag that to my clip, like so. Now you will see [inaudible] in my affects controls and always make sure by the way that your clip is selected. If it's not selected, it could be that your playing head, sits on that clip, but that it is not selected like this, and then you also won't see anything in the effects controls. So always click on its to reveal the effects that have been applied on that clip. Now right here, disaffected doesn't have that little icon next to it. So I know, right now that I don't have to select that effect, like this, because I can't change anything visually in my program monitor. I have to do with all manually from here, within the settings. So here we can increase that blurriness. Let's increase that value like this, and that will blur the image. Does that mean that we can only play one effect to this clip? Of course not. Let's get back to the effects library. The next thing that I want to search for, is the "Roughen Edges ", right here, and drag that effect to error clip like so. Let's head back to that affects controls right here, and let's just change a few of these values. For example, increase the border like that. We can also change the edge type to Roughen and color. This is something that you have to play with. Change them at the settings, and see what they do. Let's increase the scale to enter it. There we go. Perhaps, maybe also increase the edge sharpness a tiny bit more, like that. Because there's something very important that I want to show you guys. We can add multiple effects to our clips. But there's something very important to keep in mind, to get a desired results, and that is the order of effects. Right now, I first Gaussian blur, my clip, because it's first in line limit is collapsed these effects, so that you can see it better. We have that one first in line, the Gaussian blur. It's applied to our clip, and the next one is the Roughen Edges. Roughen Edges are also being applied on the Gaussian blur effects. But wherever we changed the order of effects, let me just drag the Gaussian blur below the rough edges, like so, we can change the order. What we are now doing,is first applying the Roughen Edges effects to that clip, and then we're going to apply a Gaussian blur, on the Roughen edges ends on our clip. You can also see it here, in the program monitor, what it does. I'm just change that back quickly, so that you can see the before and the after it, like this, and like that. If you want to get a desired result, but you are having trouble to get there, then you might want to change the order of effects. There's something that you might notice now, while applying all of these effects to your clips, is that you'll start to get trouble playing this back because you've applied so many effects to it, and you can't play it back so smoothly anymore inside premier, and that is completely normal. So let's play this clip and see how that goes. This machine seems to be pretty heavy, so it's playing back pretty good. Let's maybe apply a few more effects to it, inside the lighting. Because I know that that is a pretty heavy effect as well, like this. It doesn't matter what I'm creating right now. Let's play back right now. So playing back smartly, might be seen as just way too heavy. Let's assume that it's not playing back smoothly. What we can tend to, is head over to our program monitor right here, and change its resolution. It's already set to one-forth, and maybe that's why it was playing back smoothly. But let's set full, and we'll see how it will now go. You can already see that it has a bit more trouble playing it back. Yes, now we are getting a Sharpie playback, exactly what I needed. So if you are running into this trouble, you can change your playback resolution to a half,one-fourth, one-eighth, it doesn't matter. Play with that and see what gives you a smooth playback. But let's assume that you're still not getting that smooth playback. Perhaps you are editing on a laptop or something. What you can then do is pre-render your clips inside the timeline. I know that I can pre-render my clips, because at this red line here, on top of this edit right here, and that threat line here, in the timeline says to me, that premiere pro cannot play this back in real time. It will have trouble playing it back. So it'll suggest to you, by showing this red line, that we have to render it. Rendering will actually do is export that piece of your clip in your timeline, to your hard drive. Does that mean that we have to go into the menus, look for the export settings? Not at all. It's just one simple button. When you are in your timeline, simply hit the" Return" key on your keyboard, like that, and you'll see that it'll start rendering. That's the only thing that you have to do. Now you will see in your timeline, that line becomes a green, which means that Premiere pro can play this back in real-time, because we have rendered that clip. Now it will always play back smoothly, even if we'd set this right here to full, look at that. But let's now assume that we want to make changes to this. Let's go back into the settings right here, and let's go the Gaussian blur. Let's add a bit more Gaussian blur to it. What I'm going to do this, you'll see that red line appears again. Didn't we render this before? Exactly, we did rendered this, but we rendered a different version of that premiere, actually exported that video clip, and because we made these changes, it also changed so it cans playback that exported clip anymore. That means we have to re-render it. So that is something to keep in minds. Guys, the last thing I want to show you, is how you can save the settings that you've made, to the effects that you've applied to that clip. Because maybe you want to add these same effects later in the future again, to a certain clip, which you can then do is save all of the settings right here, and do a preset. That can simply be done by selecting the effects that you want to have in your presets. You can select multiple effects, by clicking on one, and then holding down your "Ctrl" key or the" Commands" key for Mac users, to select multiple effects like so, and then simply right-click on it, and say safe presets. You can then give it a name. For example, my awesome effects and hit "Okay". You can also give it a description, if you want so, but you don't have to. Where can you locate that presets? Again, back into our effects library. Just going to delete here the search bar like this, and you will see that we also have a folder called "Presets". Let's expand that folder and right in there we can find "My awesome effects". The cool thing about this, is that this preset will always be available in any project you create in the future. So you don't have to relocate it here anymore. Let's drag this right here, "My awesome effect", to the [inaudible] clip that we have in our timeline? There we go. All three effects are now also are played to that clip. Do you want to make changes to your preset or delete that presets? You can always do so. Just right-click on it and say delete. That is how the effects work inside Premiere Pro. Remember that you have to pay attention to the order, to get this specific results and that you sometimes need to render or change your resolution playback. Thank you again for watching, and the next lesson, we're going to take a look at how we can make transitions between two clips. 8. transitions: In this video lesson, I'm going to show you how to create a transition between two clips and transitions can also be found within the effects library, which is right here. Now previously we had a look at the video effects folder, but now we're going to take a look at the video transitions. Let's open up that folder and straight in here here we can find some more categories. Let's, for example, take the 3D motion and grab the cube spin. This time we don't drag this transition to a clip, but in between two clips. You can also see here the selection of where that transition is going to be applied. Let it go and now you can see how premier marks it, that there is a transition between these two. Let's play that back and see in our program monitor how that looks. There we go. A beautiful transition between two clips. Now a transition can also be changed in length. We can select that transition stand on the outside just as with a clip and just drag that longer like this. What will happen now is when we're going to play this, the transition will take longer. I'm having trouble playing this back. What I'm going to do here is change my playback resolution to one fourth. Some transitions are also heavier for your computer to handle and that's why you would also again see it as red line on your top. I might need to render this, but I think it will go okay right now, there we go. That takes longer, if we're going to drag this shorter. That transition will go faster, of course, like this. Just like with effects, we can also click on that transition had over to the effects controls and then see some options of that affects. But usually what you would see in here is something to change the length of that transition and what I would recommend to you is just to pull that transition right here. Some transitions might have some more options. If we're going to scroll down below here, we can, for example, set it to reverse and that means that the cube spin will go the other way around. Let's have look like that and there might be some more options and here but usually it's pretty basic. Something very important to understand with transitions is that you're actually using a larger parts of your video clip. Let me just drag that transition a little bit longer like this. With transition, as you can see, it's overlapping the two clips. In the beginning of that transition right here, you will already see here under right side into my program monitor, the seconds clip in my timeline, which is clip number 14. That means we are already seeing that clip on this moment, but we've actually cut that clip right here. That means we are seeing something of that clip before we meet our cuts and that is something very important to understand. Let me just show that through a better example. I'm going to head back to my project panel right here, open up any of these clips right here. Right here in the beginning you will see Kim standing still. At a certain point I would say action to her hence right here she starts playing her role. At this point, I might want to set my in-point like this, then struggle a bit further in time and then set my outpoint. I'm going to drag this right here to my timeline like this. Let me just remove clip number 14 for a moment like that and align clip number 11 to clip number three. Head back to my effects controls and drag that cube spin back into it, like so. Let's also drag that cube spin a little bit larger. Let's have a look in the beginning of that transition. What you would see right now here is Kim standing still in that first part and that is because we are showing a little bit before we've made our in-points, which is something very important to be conscious about. Because what you sometimes might want to do is lay your in-point a little bit further so that you pay attention to you the transition that you're going to apply. You can easily do that by using the slip tool, which can be found right here, we've seen that in the previous lesson and with the slip tool, we can change that in and out point. Here's a great use of that tool. I'm just going to grab that stand on that second clip right here and drag it to the left side. Now my in-point is going to be where Kim is already bending herself, do tie her shoe, like this. It's actually a little bit too far my in-point, but that's okay because my in-point is moving up to the left side anyways because of this transition. Let me just pull this transition even a bit longer like that so that you can definitely see it well, right here. Now she's bending. It's actually at this point right here, we reset our actual in-points. I'm going to delete this clip again and what I'm going to do now is right-click here in my source panel and head over to Clear In and Outs. That will remove my in and out point selection. I'm just going to drag in the entire clip like this, next to it. When looking at this clip right let me just zoom in. I know that this clip does not have a selection and that the first frame is the actual first frame of the source clip and that is because at this little triangle here in the upper corner, this clip doesn't have that because it still has some video here next to it but this one doesn't. It starts right here and it doesn't have anything else before that. But look what happens when I'm going to apply a transition to it. Let's grab that cube spin again and drag that in between these two and right away you can see that we can't really apply it in the middle of these two clips. When I'm going to drag this transition longer in time like this, I can only drag it to the right side, I can't bring it to the left. That is because we don't have any more information on that left side and that is what's needed for a transition. For clip number three, we do have some more information here on the right side as you can see, which the transition is going to use. If you are running into a problem where you can't apply a transition over two eclipse then that will probably be the cause. Let me take back a selection right here from this clip, like this. Drag that into my timeline and apply that cube spin transition again over it like this. Now currently this transition right here sits in the middle, but we can also change how much it has to take from each of the clips. I can drag this cube spin to the left side like this and now you will see that the transition to cube spin, will take more of clip number 11 because it already starts right here. But only a small piece from clip number three, like that and that way you can steer how much and which parts that transition has to take from your clips in order to make that transition completion. All right, and go to delete this transition right now because what I want to show you guys is the most used transition ever. That is here under the dissolve their pressure and that is the cross dissolve. You can also see that there's something different with this transition right here. I'm going to just zoom in again on it. It has this blue selection around it and that is because this transition right here is set as the default transition because it's just used so many times. Let me show you first what this tradition does. I'm going to drag this in-between these clips and that will just create a feet between these two clips like this. If we are going to apply this on the end of the clip like that, you will see that it will fade out to black because there is no other clip next to it. That is why it's used so often. I'm going to delete these two again because since they are set as the default transition, I can actually apply them to a shortcut because we also use them so often. What I can simply do is select either the intersection between two clips or the end of the clip and then just press Control D or Command D for the Mac users and that will apply that transition to the clip. I could also select it right here, hit Control D or Command D to make a transition over two clips. There's something that I see happening with many of my students is this problem right here. Let me just delete these two transitions again. They have this very tiny gap between their two clips. Let me just stream it like that. There we go. As you can see, we have a very tiny gap between the two. But because we are zoomed out like this, we don't really see that gap. Then people want to apply a transition between the two and they do this. Then they realize why isn't this transition going over the two clips. Now it's just fading the one out and it's starting the other clip. Well, that is because of that small gap. You always want to make sure that your two clips sit next to each other like this and then you can apply the transition over it. Now let's assume that you would like to set another transition as a default because you happen to use that one more often. Let's pick something else right here. Let's head over to the Iris and let's take the Iris Diamonds. Let's say that you want set this as your default transition. Well, then you can do that by simply right-clicking on to it and say set select it as default transition. Now you will also see that this transition gets that selection and now you know that this is your default transition and we can apply that, let me just delete this one right here, by selecting two clips in between and hitting Control D like that. Now we can have a look at the iris transition like this. Now something else where transitions are also used very often is with audio. I'm going to delete clip here in my timeline and what I'm going do is drag in this clip again, but completely with its audio as well. There isn't much audio in it. It's just some backgrounds, audio is going to drag this one into it as well. There we go. We got a little bit audio in there. But what I'm going to play this right now, you will hear that in-between these two clips, you have this clicking sounds because we're suddenly going from one soundscape to another. Let's have a listen. Now that was minor because there isn't much background noise here. But if you would have driving cars in the background and you would certainly cut your clip right there then those cars or the sound of those cars would suddenly drop off as well. That's why you want to add a smooth transition in between. Let's go back to the effects library and head over to the audio transitions right here. Right here we can find the cross fades and these are pretty much the same. You can see that the constant power is set as the default selection. We're just going to apply that drag it in-between those two audio clips. What it will do now is smoothly attach the two soundscapes to each other and that way you don't have that hard cut in-between. It's just much more fluent and also more pleasant for the audience to listen to. Let's have a listen. There we go. It's again minor, but I think that you understand how it works. That's it for transitions. Next up we're going to take a look at how to create some text insights, premier pro, and also some basic graphics. 9. Text and Graphics: Welcome back guys. In this lesson, we're going to create some text and graphics using the essential graphics panel that was introduced in the 2017 update of Premier Pro. So if you have the latest version, you also have this new panel. They've introduced a whole new way on how text and graphics are created. So let's have a look inside the program. Let's locate that, span all the graphics essential. By default, you don't see it. So we have to go up to the menu, select, "Window" and say "Essential graphics" right here. Once you click on that, a new panel will appear on the right side like that, I'm using large title a tiny bit more. What we are seeing here first are some templates that we can use but that is for the next lesson. For now, we're going to head over to the tab here top and click on "Edit." Like that. In the edit tab, we can create our own text and edit the text of course. But first we have to create a text layer. There are two ways we can do that. First off, we can click here on that new item button. Then at the same button as we can find here down below in our project panel to create new items. So when you click on that, we can choose between texts, vertical text, a rectangle, eclipse, or we can also import an image file in here. The second way to create new texts is by using your tool box right here. I already have my text tool selected. Right here there's the type tool by holding down your mouse-click, you can also choose for the vertical type tool. But for now let's just select the type tool and those graphics can be found underneath the Pen tool right here. The Pen tool allows you to create custom shapes. But if you again click on that whole then you click, you can also create rectangles or eclipses. All right, let's take back that text tool right here. So what we can simply do is just head over to the program monitor and click in there, and that allows us to start typing. So let's type something in here. Let's say, "My first text." Like that. While doing this, you can now see in the graphic essentials panel that a new layer here has been created. My first text and a bunch of options will open up underneath that because we've just created that text. What I want to do now is grab my arrow tool right here and so that way, I can enlarge my texts like this. I can grab it, move it to a different position, et cetera. These options right here can also be changed from that spinal here on the right side. This is something that we've seen as well with the motion property of a clip, it works exactly the same. So we can change the position of that text like this or like that. Or we can also align it automatically in the middle. We can align its vertical in the center and we can align it horizontally in the center like that. So that way you are sure that you have your text in the middle of your framing. Or sometimes when you are for example, creating subtitles, you might want to stick your text here on the bottom like that and only a line it on the horizontal axis like that. We have a few more options like rotating this through this option, we can change the opacity as well. These are things that we are familiar with now. Scrolling down, we also see some more text options like the font, which is also pretty obvious. Let me just stick something else right here. Let's go for this segoe scripts. Then below that we can change things like, does it have to be in bold? What's the size of the texts, et cetera. These are things that we also know from text editors. Then below that we can change some more things so the appearance, so we can give it a color, which is the fill color. We can give that some a red color like this. So we can also give that a stroke by enabling that and changed that stroke color. Or we can also increase that stroke white, like this. Next to it is also a color picker. So let's say that we want to have the same color for the stroke as the fill color. What we can then do is just click on that color picker right here. We can select any color here on our screen. So that means we can either select the color from the middle of that text to get that red color. But sometimes which is easier, it's just clicking on that fill color right here, there we go. Now we have this very bold text because we've added the same color as stroke as well. We also give it a shadow, but because we are on a black background, you won't see that much from it. But I think it's all pretty clear. This is something that you just have to play around with, see what these different settings do. It'll just change the style of your texts, nothing more. All right, let's have a look here at our timeline because there's something changing here as well. Suddenly we have this new graphics layer in here, and that is that texts that we had before. While I have that clip selected, I'm going to head over to my effects controls, just like we can do with any other clip. We will also see that in motion property, that opacity property, but also and that has been applied as an effect, we have a text effects onto it. Basically that just comes down to having a text layer on this clip right here. From the effects controls, we can change the same settings as we would see here in the graphic essentials panel. But most of the time the graphics essential panel is a little bit more convenience or user-friendly to work with than through the effect controls right here. Then let's say that we want to add a graphic to our design right here. So a circle or something like that. Now we can add to that circle inside this layer as well. Or we can create a new layer that's first added to the current layer. We can simply do that by having this clip selected, we can here head over to our leaders from the graphics essential panel and click on the new item button right here. Or we can also take the Pen tool or the circle tool right here from the toolbox. Make sure that, that clip is selected and then we can start drawing inside our program monitor like this. Now that circle will be added to that same clip. That gives us a few advantages because since we have multiple items inside of that same clip, we can change the position of that clip. Let me show that to you guys, with the selected again, I'm going to head over to my effects controls. But this time you will see it right here, we have a text and a shape right here. But up here, the motion property allows us to change the position of that clip. Since these two graphics are on the same clip, all of them will move with me. But when I'm going to head into the options of those two layers here, the graphics or I can also just use my graphics essential panel here, on the right side, let me click here on the shape, for example. That will bring up some options. So from here I can change the position of that individual circle. As you can see, I can change the color, change size, et cetera. Also when I'm going to select the text layer in here, I can also change the size, change the position, and so on. Just like with effects like we've seen previously, the order of your graphics is important here as well. Because let's say that I'm going to put this text right here. Let's just make that white so it's a bit more clear what I'm doing right here, like that. Let me just also remove that stroke and I'm going to take back my selection tool. That way I can grab this text and move it in front of that circle. But not really, it seems to be behind that circle or that is because of the order of layers. Let me just scroll up here in my essential graphics. Let's move the shape right here underneath the texts. Also in our program monitor, now the shape is behind that text. So that way you can create your own custom designs that way. Now to create a new graphic inside a new clip, what you then have to do is just deselect that clip right here, take your type tool or something different. Let's perhaps take the Pen tool right here from my toolbox, which allows me to create a custom shape by just clicking multiple times in here, like that. Photoshop users are used to this and that way we can create a new graphic or a new shape inside a new clip as well. So that is something that you have to see for yourself if you are creating zines inside Premiere Pro that you can either group them within one clip, or you can also separate them within different clips. Now let's assume that what we have created right here is so awesome that I want to save this for all my future work. What I can then do is create a template out of this, but that is for the next lesson. Thanks for watching. 10. Templates: In the previous lesson, we have seen that we can create our own text and graphics. In this lesson, I want to have a look at templates. You can create your own templates, but also download or use existing templates from the essential graphics panel. Let's have a look. Right here on top of the essential graphics panel, you can see the browse tab, so let's click on that. In you browse tab, we can find different templates that we can just import right inside Premiere Pro. With some of these templates, you will see the words AE in front of it, and that stands for After Effects. It's important that you have After Effects installed to use these templates. Now, you don't need to open After Effects or need to know how it works, you just need to have it installed, and that can be done from your Creative Cloud's account right here. If you have an active subscription to Creative Cloud, you have access to all the applications from them. Right here, we can find After Effects, just make sure that that is installed. Just close that again. Let me just import one of these templates. Let's pick one out to start with that doesn't come from After Effects. For example, here under social media, let me just double-click on that, and let's say that you all want to subscribe to my YouTube channel, then we can just drag in that template right here into the timeline, like so. It might ask you to synchronize some fonts, but again, if you have Creative Cloud, just make sure that you are connected to your account, and that way you can synchronize or automatically download the required fonts. Let me just check this box right here that say, yes, I want to synchronize this fonts right here, and click on sync fonts, and then press ''Okay''. Sometimes it might take a little while, but there we go. This right here is an animation that Adobe has made for you and it comes in this pack. I'm going to leave it open whether or not this looks good. Anyways, this is a template which means that we can also change the things in here. Click on that clip right here, and that will automatically open up the edit step from your essential graphics. Right here, we can see that we can change the subscribe text. Double-click on the subscribe text right here, and that way we can change it. For example, instead of saying, "Hey, subscribe to my channel," you might want to say, "Like my video". You can type in here like. If you want so you can also change the colors and everything else of that text. Select your text, and then change the color to blue. There we go. Because it might be that you might want to change like one letter like this, then you can select one letter and change that to something else. For example, yellow like this. That is also perfectly possible. That way you can change the look of that template like so. I just go through these templates that Adobe provides to you and you might find something cool in there. But this is a pretty cool thing. You can also import templates. That means you can also look online for templates that other people have created. You can also sometimes purchase templates from certain stock websites and import them inside Premiere. Let me show you guys how that is done. I'm going to go back to browse right here, and I'm going to go to my root folder through this dropdown menu right here, where I can see everything, again, from this button right here next to the essential graphics dropdown menu, you can see the option to install a motion graphics templates. Let's click on that because on my desktop right here, I actually have a simple lower thirds folder, and that is something that I have created myself. It's on our website, silicon.net, I'll also leave a link to it in the description of this course. They are free, so just download them and once you have downloaded it, you have an option between 4K or 1080P. We have two resolutions available. We are currently working actually in a 4K resolution sequence, so that's why I'm going to select the 4K folder, and right in there, you'll find several lower thirds templates. Let's just pick any of them out. Let's say lower third number 8. Select it and press open. That way it will install itself into the graphics essential panel. The cool thing about this is that this also extends to any project you create in the future. It doesn't save in your projects here, but if you're going to create a new short film documentary, doesn't matter, in the future, then you will also find that in your essential graphics panel. Let's drag this one in it. This one was created with After Effects. Again, you don't need to open After Effects, just make sure that it's installed and then you can drag that into Premiere Pro. It's going to load, and this usually takes a little longer because it's making this connection with After Effects. Also here, I'm getting the same question. We use Myriad Pro Condensed in our templates. To use those fonts as well, just select that and say sync fonts and press ''Okay''. If it still has trouble to find your fonts, just restart Premiere and then it will find it. Right here, I have it imported, and you can also see that this clip here has a different color, it's more pink, the one with the graphic essentials layer. Let's just select that and it gives you some other options. We can't really change the position, the scaling and all because that was created inside After Effects. We do have tons of more options inside After Effects, and that is why it's so great to use these After Effects templates. Let's just have a look at it like this. This is not so convenient to create this inside Premiere Pro, this graphic. We can create it, but it's not so convenient. Anyways, with this clip selected from the edit tab here on top, we can change the stuff in here. This is also something that we have created. We decided to which things can be changed inside Premiere Pro. Every template is going to be different. Let's start off with your name, so long names can fit here. My name is Jordy, and it's my last name is Vanderput. We can change the color to that. Let's take something light blue, for example. Let's change the background color, which is here, in this case, the accent color 3. Let's change that to something blue, some darker blue, like that. Let's just go back in time to see which colors we also want to change. This one right here, maybe that other orange color. Let's take a variant of that blue, something more like that. There we go. Now we changed the colors and the text and everything in here. It will also change my job description, you can also change that right here in the edits tab as well. I think that you get the idea. This is how these templates work. Now let's say that you have designed something of yourself inside Premiere Pro and you would like to save that as a template. Well, here's how that goes. Let's first create something. I'm going to take the text tool right here and let's say, "My awesome title." Like that. I'm going to enlarge that a little bit, like so, and perhaps I want to grab right here the rectangle tool and create a rectangle around that title like this. I'm also going to move this shape right here to the bottom so that it sits behind the text, and I might want to change the color of that more to something dark yellow maybe, I don't know. Let's add some stroke to it as well, like a tiny stroke, white stroke to it. There we go. Let's assume that this year is something pretty awesome. Something that you want to use more often, and by the way, in the next lesson, we're going to see how to create custom animations, and then it's really starts to be interesting to create these custom templates because a lot of time goes into making these animations. Let's have a look here. What my text selected right here, this clip, we can just right-click on it and head over to export as motion graphics templates. Click on that, and it will ask you where you would like to save that template. You can choose to either import that into your essential graphics panel, which is mostly the case, or you could also choose to store it on our local drive. By doing that, you can also import it yourself inside this essential graphics panel, but you can also send it to a colleague or a friend through email so that they can import your templates. Let's just select essential graphics right here, and then just press OK. There we go. It's going to export that. Now we should also see that here from our browse tab on top. Let me just enlarge that a little bit. We should see our own, right here it is, the lesson 9, which was the name of the project, which is not really correct. This right here is less than ten. Let's just right-click on that, say rename, and rename that to awesome template, like that. Press OK, and now it's named like that. We can just drag that at anytime out from our essential graphics like so and import that, click on it and change through the edits tab the text and the shape color, which is only possible by the way, with Premiere Pro templates. We have seen how to create our own texts and shapes and all. In the next lesson, we are going to have a look at how to create our own custom animations. To be honest, this was one of the most exciting things when I started out with Premiere Pro. I'll see you guys there. 11. Custom Animations: Let's create some animations inside Premiere Pro and this is something that I was the most excited about when I started out with Premiere Pro. let's get straight into it. What I'm going to do here is head over in my project panel to my image folder and you open that up and right here I have an image of a mountain. I'm going to drag this into my timeline, like so and we're going to animate this picture right here. So select that picture and head over to your effects controls. I'm going to open up the motion property right here and I'm going to scale this picture a little bit more down, like this. Now what I want to do here with this picture is animate its position. We can change that position here to the left side like that, but I want to make an animation so that it starts right here and moves to that right side. In other words, we have to animate this value right here. Well first up, we need to open up the clip timeline. We have the edit timeline, which is right here. This is our general timeline, but each clip also has an individual timeline in which we can make these animations. Mine is already opened here, on the right side of my effects controls here, but sometimes you don't see this and that is because it is collapsed and you can collapse or expand it or show and hides the timeline view through this little button right here on top. Just click on that which will collapse it or click on it again to expand it. Now to create an animation and this is sometimes hard to understand for people who are coming from the photography world because they work in stills, is that we need to think about time. When we are going to animate something, it means it will go from point A to point B and that takes up some time, for example, one second. So that's why here in our timeline or mini timeline view of that clip. We also have to set that first point, point A in time, which always is a beginning point and that's why we usually want to set this here at the beginning somewhere and on that point we want to save the value of the current position. So what I'm going to do here is change my position to my 0.8 statements like that. So this right here is the starting point of that clip and I'm going to create now a keyframe which is a certain point which holds this value. I want to save that into it. To do that, I'm going to enable animation by clicking on this button right here and that will automatically all ready create that keyframe right here as you can see, a little dot. Now lets move a little bit forward in time, like this. What I want to do now is change that position of this clip. So let's change the value right here to the right side, like that. Automatically, you will see that Premiere Pro will create a second keyframe and Premiere Pro did that because he saw that you were changing that value. Since you have animation enabled right here, he knows, okay, let's just create a keyframe for that. He's changing a value, let's save that value. So we had a point A with the beginning position. Let's check that out right here and we have a point B with an ending position like that, two points with different value. Let's see what happens when we are going to play that clip. There we go, your first animation inside Premiere Pro. This is how animation works with using these keyframes. The cool thing about Premiere is that every single one of these properties have such a stopwatch, so meaning that we can create an animation for it. We can also do that for the scale, for example. So lets start back here in the beginning and lets just scale it down even more. A very small picture. Lets give it a keyframe for that or enable the animation, move forward in time and increase that scale. Now we have a double animation. Lets play that. Look at this. Now the picture is changing in position, but also becoming larger in scale. Now to disable the animation or delete all your keyframes, just click that stopwatch button again to, toggle it off. Premiere Pro will also warn you that all of your keyframes will be deleted. Press "Okay." Let's say that your animation right here at that position goes a little bit too slow. You want it to go faster, which you then have to do is just bring point A and point B closer to each other. You are giving Premiere or these keyframes less time to go from one point to another. Let's just do that. Grab one of these keyframes and move them closer to each other. Lets play it right now and it goes much faster as you can see. Now previously, we also saw that the motion property right here had this little icon next to it, which means that we can click on this property and visually change the properties here in the program monitor, but look at this right here. Let me just zoom in on that as well, just enlarge this a tiny bit more. We can actually see the path of the animation that we've just created and when we are going to play this clip, you will also see that the animation will go over that path. It might not be that clear because of this picture here, but it isn't blue as you can see. We can also change this path visually. We can actually grab one of these out points right here and drag that to a different position like that. Also with this one, just drag that to a different position, like so and when we are going to play it right now, it will just follow this line right here. Like this. We can visually change that path of the animation. There's some animations like the path of the position also had some levers and if you are familiar to working in Photoshop with the mask tool in there or a pen tool. Then you know that we can also pull these levers and you can see them right here. It's very tiny, you zoom in on that. It's an extra dot that is connected to your starting points and if you are going to pull on that, you can kind of see what we're doing here. We can make an arc of our animation like that. So we can also do that with the second point right here. Just pull on that and sometimes I have to look myself where that point is. It is right here. I believe, I know it's right there. Right here. I that. Now we're making this S curve at this animation. Let me just pull this a bit more like that and let's play this now and see how that goes. There we go. The photo is now going in to this S arc. So that's pretty cool. All right, I'm going to delete all the key frames for the position. There we go. I'm going to drag this clip right here. Also scale it a little bit down, like that. I'm going to create that animation again, but what I want to do now is do something different. I'm going to create a keyframe for the starting position, like that. I'm going to move forward in time. Grab that picture perhaps like this, move that to the right side, but now I want that picture to stay there for a brief moment and then move on. So I'm going to move forward in time and at this point, I want to create that same exact keyframe again, but because I'm not making changes, Premiere doesn't know that it has to create automatically this new keyframe. So that's why I manually have to do that for that same value. I can do that from this button right here, which sits next to your value and that will only appear when you have your animation enabled and by clicking on that, you can add a keyframe from the same value of the previous keyframe. So in between here these two values are exactly the same, so nothing will happen, which is exactly what we want. Now lets move a bit forward in time and now let's take that or select that motion again so that we can grab the picture and move that to a different location, like that and now when we are going to play this clip, you'll now see that clip will play, stop for a brief moment and move on. That is what we've created here and again like we've seen previously, we can always grab these keyframes, move them around. Maybe that part has to be a little bit longer, like this and if we're going to play this now you will see that that part will be longer. So we can always move change these keyframes at all time. I'm going to delete all of these keyframes again because there's one more thing I want to show you to these keyframes and that are smooth keyframes. This is a bit more advanced, but it is something that will take the edge off those harder keyframes and making your animations look a lot more professional. So let me show that to you guys. Again, create keyframe for the beginning, like that. Move on in time and change the value right here to the right side. So this animation right now will just push that image here from the left to the right, like so, nothing really fancy, but take a look at the starting animation. How does that picture start? How does that picture end? That was pretty instant, wasn't it? The images started moving right away and stopped moving right away. There wasn't really an acceleration, which is more natural to any animation. So what we can do here is right-click on the first keyframe, and heading over to temporal interpolation and say, ease out. That way does is click on that. That way we are telling to Premiere Pro, okay, slowly start your animation, accelerate and then go to your last point. For the final keyframe, we're going to say temporal interpolation, ease In. Some of you might think why ease out with the first keyframe and ease in with the last keyframe. Shouldn't that be the other way around? Well we always have to see it this way. Where is your animation going to? Looking here at this keyframe, the animation is actually coming out of that keyframe and that is why we are selecting Ease Out. This is our final keyframe, so it's coming inside this key frame. That is why we're saying Ease In. That's something to remember there. Lets play this now and look at the animation of this photo. It starts smooth and it also stops smooth. That is what we want and that will make the difference between an amateur and professional animation. I'm going to head over now to my Effects library right here. Lets just search for something. It doesn't matter. Lets back take to blur effect. It's somewhere right here, the Gaussian Blur and drag that to our photo and lets locate that directional blur, it's right here. Now also here we can find that exact same stopwatch here, that toggle Animation button next to that property, basically any property. That means we can also treat animations with certain effects properties. Lets go back to the beginning and lets add some blurriness to this photo, like that. We'll just add a lot of blur, like this, so we completely don't see what's going on in this picture. Lets make a keyframe for the blurriness, like that. Move forward in time and I will change that to zero, which is no blur at all. Lets play this here in-between and now you will see that this picture will go from a blur to not a blur. So that is a great way to reveal a text or an image or a video clip, doesn't matter. Speaking of texts, let's have a look at that. From the toolbox I'm going to take the text tool and lets just go a little bit further here in my timeline on a blank space, I'm going to create a new text, so let's say, awesome texts. As always, the only thing I can come up with. Awesome Texts. There we go. Lets just put that big in the middle, like that. Now we can head back over to the window here on top and select essential graphics. Open up that panel, head over to the edits right here. Let me just change my panels a bit so that you guys can see what I'm doing, like that. Now right in here, we don't really see that stopwatch to toggle the animation, so we have to select that motion graphic clip, which is right here in a timeline. Just move that up as well. There we go. Head over to the effects controls and from there we do see all the properties, the same properties of that text actually that we can also find within the essential graphics panel, but through the effects controls, we also see those stopwatches for the animation. The pretty cool is that within this layer, I have it selected right here, the text animation. Within there, we can change the position of that text. So again, we can create animation for the position like that. So that moves from the left to the right, there we go. We've done that animation on the text not on the clip, because if you want to add an animation to the clip itself, we have to go up and do that underneath the motion property. Here we also have that position property which will change the position of the entire group. Not of that specific texts. So that is something to keep in mind there. This is exactly why you want to create these templates which are graphics because once you are going to create animations, putting a lot of time and effort into it, you want to save that into your essential graphics library right here and we also do that for our work. We work for YouTube. So we have tons of SVOs, ends cards, intros, etc, that we have animated and imported inside this essential graphics library, so we can use that for every new episodes to keep the branding, of course. All right guys, next up a little quiz, a quiz about creating texts, creating animations, using the essential graphics panel and its library. Good luck with that quiz, and I'll see you guys back and then we're going to speed up and slow down some clips. 12. Speed Ramping: What up folks, welcome back to the course. I hope that the quiz went well. In this lesson, we're going to have a look at how to change the speed of your clip, and also have a look at speed ramping. But everything comes down to changing the speed, so that means slow motion or fast motion. Let's get started here in premiere. I didn't create it to my timeline yet because that is something important to know before we are going to start speed ramping our clips. Everything that was shot right here in 50 frames per seconds, and let's take a clip out of here on which we can add that slow motion to. There's one clip here where Kim is actually falling, right here is that clip, I just double-click on it and right here you can see her tripping over her shoes. Because this was shot at 50 frames per seconds, I'm going to make a sequence of 25 frames per seconds. That'll give me two frames per seconds, and thus, I can stretch the clip more for a slow motion shot. All right, let's create that keyframe. Back to our project here. Click on the New Item button down below and say Sequence. Let's just take that 4K sequence now under DNxHR, it's actually an ultra HD sequence. Right here I see 25 for the 25 frames. Let's just pick the first one here, this is just the difference in quality, but it doesn't matter that much when you're editing. Let's give that a name. Let's say "Slow Motion Sequence", and press Okay, there we go. Let's drag a piece from this clip right here inside that timeline. This selection right here. Let's drag only the video for now in that timeline. Of course, premiere will ask, should I change the settings of this sequence to my source settings? Because it was 50 frames and we're inputting that into 25 frames. But we know what we're doing. I'm just going to say keep existing settings. There we go. All right, let me just zoom in a bit more on this timeline like that, and perhaps enlarge here the tracks. By holding down the Alt key and scrolling in those tracks, you can open them up. There are a couple of ways to add slow motion to your clips or fast motion, that doesn't matter. The first one is just the static change in speed. That can be done by right-clicking on that clip and heading over to speed/duration. We have seen this previously in this class. Right here, we can say how much of the speed percentage has to be, or we can also change its duration. Let's utilize our 50 frames for that 25 frames per seconds sequence. That means we can change the speed to 50 percent, which means exactly half of the speed, then press OK, and now we should see a beautiful slow motion and it goes very smooth because we have actual 25 frames per seconds available. There we go. Let's say that we are going to, let's go back to the speed/duration menu. Let's change this to 10 percent. This is going to be a super slow motion. Press OK. Let's have a look here at what happens, let's enlarge that program monitor a tiny bit, because now we are only giving five frames per seconds to Premiere Pro. Lets see how Premiere handles that. As you can see, it's a very sharpy playback. It's playing back at 25 frames per seconds with only the five frames available. Now let's go back to that menu. Right-click on your clip and say speed/duration. We can say to the program that Premiere Pro has to create those frames in between that actually are in there, and that can be done from this drop-down menu down below here, Time interpolation. We're going to set that to optical flow. Press OK. You can see this red line here on top of the clip, which means that we actually render it as well. You could try to play this back, but usually it won't give you much results, we actually have to render this. Hit that Return key to render this, just wait a little, and it's rendered. Let's play back this clip and look at these guys. Now, it seems like everything goes super smooth. That is pretty cool, that Premiere can do this. It seems like we shot this at, I don't know, like 500 frames per second or something, but it's not. However, it might seem like a cool trick and like why do we need super-fast cameras in order to do this? Well, let me just zoom in here, I'm going to set this to 100 percent, you guys can see what's actually happening and definitely here in the bottom, let me just move one frame forward each time. You can see it here, these ghosting effects right here that we are seeing, are those frames in-between that Premiere is creating for us. Sometimes it goes pretty okay. We just look at here at her pants, you can see some weird things going on. It does work, but it doesn't always go that perfect. I'm going to set this back to Fit, right-click on my clip, go to speed/duration, I'm just going to set this back to frame sampling and set the speed to 100. These are the default values. One last thing I want to show you guys through this menu right here, that you can also reverse the speed right here by just checking this box and you don't need to set anything else, just press OK, and now that clip will just play back in reverse as you can see right here. You can make some real fun things with that. This is one way to add a fast motion or slow motion to your clip. By the way, we haven't seen fast motion yet, don't we? Well, that's simply done by just right clicking again on your clip speed/duration, and instead of going below the 100s, just go above that. For example, 200s. I'm just going to de-check the reverse speed, press OK, and now everything will go much faster. Also something fun to play with for some comedy or something like that. This was a pretty static way to add a slow motion or fast motion to your clips. You can only set like one certain speed. But what if we want to change the speed over time? Well, that technique is called speed ramping. Let's have a look at how we can do that. Now, just delete that clip right here, and bring back to your original one in the timeline, Keep existing settings, there we go. I'm just going to zoom in a bit more on this clip because that is actually done on the clip itself. If we are going to select that clip right here, head over to our effects controls, we could actually find a property called Time remapping. Time remapping allows us to change the speed gradually. We can do that from here, from the effects controls that you like, so where there's a much more convenient way to do that, and that is by key framing your properties on the clip itself and not through your Effects Controls, also something that is possible. Now, in here in your clip you'll see here in the top right an FX button. Let me just zoom in on that. Now, by default the opacity property has been selected for that clip, but I can right-click on that FX button and choose a different property. From the Motion, I'm just going to zoom out a little bit again. From the Motion I can select the position, the scale, the uniform scale rotation, etc. Also, your time remapping, speed. That is a thing that we are going to select. Let's select Speed. You will see this line appear right here in this clip. On that line, we can create keyframes, and that works exactly the same as here on top, to the effect controls. Their time remapping looks a little bit different than the conventional keyframing. Let me show you guys how that goes. Let's start in the beginning of this clip. What I want to do here is create a keyframe. We can do that from taking the pen tool from your toolbox. That means that the pen tool also has a second way of using it. Through there we can click on that point to make a keyframe. Instantly, you will see that that keyframe also looks a little bit different than usual. It's not just a dot, it's this marker with a line through it. We'll see in just a moment how that works. Let me take back my arrow tool now. What we can do now is push this line right here, up or down. By pulling it down, we will decrease the speed, making it in slow motion. By pulling it up, we will increase the speed. You can see it like this we are increasing the speed, and you can also see right there, the value, the percentage of how much you're speeding that up, or we can also slow that down. Let's bring that to 50 percent like so. You'll see now that there's a clear difference between the first part of that clip, which is normal speed 200 percent, and certainly right here, it drops off to 50 percent, which is in slow motion. If we would play this back, we would first see Kim walking, it's normal speed, and then suddenly when she falls here, that will be accident, but a good accident, she is now in slow motion. But this is still pretty sudden. We also saw previously that we had to create smooth keyframing. Well, here we also like to create smooth keyframes. We can't right-click on it, so what we have to do is pull this keyframe open. Let's do that. Take your right side of the keyframe, and just zoom in here, right side and just drag on that key frame like that. By doing this, we are opening up that keyframe. Inside that keyframe or right opening that up, we're telling to Premiere that it has to take so long to go from a normal speed to a slow motion speed. Let's play this back right here, and you'll see that it goes very smooth. Normal speed and Sony slow motion. You can pull that as wide as you want to like that. I'll just play this back now very slowly, we are going to that slow motion. That is pretty cool to know about that, and this also gives us various options to go from slow motion, fast motion, etc. Let me show that to you guys as well. Here, she's just walking and then we want her to go into slow motion right here where she trips. Here we might want to go into fast motion. Let's create another key frame, like that with the pen tool, and that's right side now is going to be faster. I'm just going to pull that up, let's say double the speed, 200 percent or around to here like that. We're also going to pull that keyframe open so that it's a bit more smooth, and maybe on the final end, let's create one more key frame there, and let's go back to slow motion, 50 percent or 84, it doesn't matter. Pull that keyframe open so that everything just go smooth over into each other. Let's play this back now guys. We are starting with normal speed, we're going to slow motion, then we're going to a fast motion and then back to slow motion. Let's have a look. Here, she trips fast, and back slow. That is how advanced time remapping works inside Premiere Pro. What I want you guys to do is also take the demo footage and try make as well, such an advanced time remapping by making keyframes on the clip itself in the timeline. Great way to practice that. In the next video lesson, we are going to make it really fun. We're going to clone ourselves. There's going to be some more advanced visual effects inside Premiere so it's going to be lots of fun. I'll see you guys there. 13. Basic Visual Effects: Welcome back guys to probably the most exciting lesson of them all. In this lesson we're going to create some basic visual effects. We're going to bring together some techniques that we've learned in the past in this course, what we're going to do is compositing. Compositing means bringing different elements together to create something new. Let me show you guys how we can do that by cloning ourself. What I have right here is a new clip that I've imported to concede here. This is my colleague Genic, and it's just a simple clip where he is standing here in front of these pellets. First he stands on the left side and a little bit further in that clip, he stands on the right side. The idea is to bring these two pieces together so that it seems like he's talking to himself or actually that he cloned himself. That's the first part. Set an endpoint somewhere, let it play a bit until he moves away out of the frame, set an outpoint and drag that piece into your timeline. We're going to place this on video track number one. On top of that, because we are going to blend these two together, we are going to place the second part, which is this one right here, set an endpoint again, and an outpoint. Then drag that video on track number two like this. We might want to trim that second clip the same length as the one below. I'm just Zooming it a tiny bit more like that. You are very important if you want to clone yourself from post-production is that you shoot is from a tripod because the two shots have to be exactly the same. That's why you have to shoot steady or ideally from that tripod. What I want to do now is cut out Genic. I can do that from selecting this clip here, heading over to my effects controls and underneath opacity right here, you'll see some of these pen tool and rectangle or circle options. That means that we can actually create a mask or a shape on that clip or using that clip. Important is that you always do that from the opacity property. Now I've seen many of my students creating their mask on a different property, usually an effect that also has these masks properties. Of course, then they're not getting the same results as they were hoping for. Make sure that you are creating that mask within the opacity property. Let's take that pen tool because that way we have a bit more freedom. Click on it, and we can create our own shape. Already you can see that the mask here has been created. We are seeing some more properties of our first mask that we've created and let's draw here around Genic. I'm just going to draw a very rough path, something like this. There is also the exact reason why you had to fill my tripod. I'm going to Zoom out a tiny bit more because I actually want to draw outside of my canvas like this. Let's create a very rough mask and close that, there we go. Hence, already you can see the effects taking place. Let me set this back to fit. There you go guys. Let me just show it to you better what is going on here. We have a top layer and a bottom layer. Let me just disable that bottom layer. This is the piece that we've just cut out. The rest of it is now transparent making sure that the bottom layer here is going to reveal itself. Let's enable that one back. That is how you can clone yourself inside Premier Pro a very simple process. Now let me just Zoom in a tiny bit more on the edge of that mask, let me just select that clip here again, select my mask as well. By selecting your mask, you can view it again. By the way, you can always change your mask afterwards. If you believe that you've drawn it wrong, you can just take one of these points, drag it to a different position. You can also select your pen tool from the toolbox here to create new points like that. That way you have a new point which you can use, etc. Now like I was saying, let's Zoom in here on a 100 percent on that edge right here. Let me just deselect that mask. It is okay right here. But sometimes it is possible that you are seeing your mask and usually that is because the lighting difference or something like that. To fix that, what you want to do is feather your mask and that way you cover up the edge between these two clips. I'm going to just base this back to fit right here. What I'm going to do is in my mask property here, you will see this option mask feather. The more we will increase that, the more the mask will be feathered. Here you can also see with this dashed line, how far that feather is going to reach. This way these two clips will feather over into each other, making them appear more smooth and thus we are not seeing that edge so much anymore. That's already it guys. That is how you can copy yourself or clone yourself inside Premiere Pro.Let's have a look at it. Pretty cool, isn't it? You can have a conversation with yourself there. Now because this was shot on a tripod, it looks pretty static. It's very static shots. We might want to add that handheld movements back into it and that is possible. Let me show you guys how that is done. First of all, we need to group these two layers because if we are going to add a certain motion to the entire shot, we have to apply the same motion to the two shots. If one of them would have a different motion. Let me show that to you guys as well. I'm going to select a top layer. 14. Color Correction: In this lesson, we're going to take a look at how to color correct our shots inside Premier Pro. It's actually very exciting because since the update 2014 or something I believe, they have added a complete color correction suite inside the application. So let's have a look here. On my timeline, you can see that I have tow shots of Kim walking. This one right here and then a second one right there. Something that immediately falls to my attention is that the first shot is more blue tinted. What I've actually done wrong here was to set the white balance inside my camera wrong. But luckily, we can correct that or color correct that. In order to do that, we can head over to our menu on top, go to Window, and I'm going to go to lumetri right here, lumetri color. Click on that, which will also open up a panel on the right side. Let me just grab this right here. The lumetri panel comes with a difference categories to change the colors of your clip. We got the basic correction. We got creative corrections. We got the curves, color wheels, HSL secondary and vignette. I'm not going to dive too deep into this because we actually have a separate course also here, on Skillshare that covers everything about color correction and color grading. Color grading is a little different process. It's where you give a certain look to your shots. As with color correction, you are correcting something just like something that we are going to do right now. What I want to do is head over to the correction tab first, the basic correction. Click on that and that will open up the basic controls to control the contrasts and the colors of your clip. Now very important is that you have the correct clip selected. Let me just make a little bit more room for everything, like so. Let's start here with the colder clip on the left side, it's much colder. So let's correct that. Having this selected, I'm going to change the colors of that clip now with these settings on the right side. The first thing that I see here is temperature and that is the exact slider that I was looking for. With this, we can add some more yellow or orange into that shot. We're just pulling it to the right side, and already you can see that it starts to match a bit more with the one here on the right side, just by adding a bit more of that temperature. So that is one way to fix your shots. Now sometimes when you are pulling these colors, you might introduce a different tint into it and that's where the tint slider comes in. Because as I'm adding more orange to this shot, I'm also introducing a bit more at magenta into the shot. That's why I want to add the opposite color of that, which is green. Just a tiny bit of green. Sometimes, it really depends on the shot that you are working with. Now it has a correct warm tone over it. Of course, this is way too much, it's not the same as with the second clip anymore, so let's just reset that value and I can do that by double-clicking here on this slider. That will reset the value. The same thing goes for the temperature right there. Let's just add a tiny bit of temperature into it. A little bit more warms, and you can go back and forward between these two shots, take a look at the sky up here, maybe that was a bit too much. Let's pull it a tiny bit back like this, so that the sky looks somehow the same like that, this should look okay. Now in our color correction course, we really take this to the maximum. We have, for example, two way different shots and we have to use more of these controls rights here to match them together. It's really interesting. If you want to take your color correction or grading skills to that next level, definitely make sure to check out that course here on Skillshare as well. Furthermore, taking a look at the basic corrections with this lesson here is about, we have some more options right here to change the contrast of our shots. We can, for example, decrease the exposure, which is the brightness of the shots like that. This is also something, a control that is used very often to match two shots because often that is a setting which is different as well. We have a Contrast slider which will make the shot pop more. This looks most of the time a bit better. Just be careful though that you keep or that you retain detail in the shadows right here. Let me just zoom in here on 100 percent so that we can see Kim a little bit better right there. You can see her coat right here. There is detail into which we see which shapes that coat has. But when I'm going to decrease the shadows a bunch more and maybe the blacks as well, which is really going to crush those blacks. You can see it here, also here on her inner sleeve. We are losing detail so be careful when you're going to add tons of contrast into shots. Let me just reset those values right here and go back to the fit view. Now one of the controls which I use very often is the highlights slider. A common problem is that you have over-exposed parts and sometimes you can save that with the highlight slider. So also here in this shot we can see that the sky is completely blown out. It is overexposed. But luckily, with this highlights slider, just look at what it does here in the shots. It will introduce that blue sky at tiny bit back by just decreasing that highlights slider. That is amazing that we had that option here inside Premier Pro. Finally, we have the saturation slider here on the bottom, which we'll just make your shot more vivid or less vivid. You can even decrease it all the way to have a black and white image. That is what the saturation slider does. I would say play around with these sliders. See for yourself what they do to your image means some of these are just way too convenient like the shadows or the blacks. What they will do, I mean, they'll just decrease the blacks or increase the blacks. Play around with these, see what they do for yourself. I'm going to collapse the basic correction because there's one thing I want to show you guys in the creative tab. Namely, we have here the sharpness slider. Sometimes you shoot something which is out of focus, what you can then do is increase the sharpness here a tiny bit. Don't increase it too much. You always want to increase something or change a value and then look at your shot, what it does to your shot. Because if you would increase this dramatically, let's just do that for a moment. You will see that Kim right here just looks way too sharp, which is not natural anymore. We can do that at tiny bits, something around 15, maybe 20, and not more than that. Now in the beginning of this lesson, I was talking about color correction and color grading. Two different processes. With color correction, you're going to correct a clip, the colors of it, and with grading, you're going to give it a specific look. Now grading is a whole different chapters, so it can't dive deep into that. But here under the creative tab, there's actually a very simple, one-click and go setting to add a specific look to your shot. You can either select one from the drop down menu right here. These are different looks. Or you can also navigate through it right here. Right away you can see how to look looks in this preview box. Let's go for something, maybe this is one here is pretty cool. Once you've got that selected, click on it and that will apply it to your shots. That way you can give your shots a very quick and dirty grading to it. I'm not going to dive too much anymore in to these color correction settings because it's a whole different chapter. But do try to experiment with these settings, try them for yourself and see what they do. Sometimes by just trying or experimenting with things, you learn something new by yourself. All right, a question that I also get a lot from my students is, I've applied a certain grading or a certain look to my clip, but how can I copy that now to the rest of my shots? Because I don't want to create this same grading every time for every new clip. Well, here's how it goes. When you are changing things here in lumetri, what Premier Pro actually did, was applying the lumetri effect onto your clip. So with that effect here selected, you can head over to your effects controls and scroll down right here, you can see lumetri color. Also from this effects right here, we can find all the same options that we got from the lumetri panel. You can also change it's in here if you like so. Of course that is not so convenient. I believe that this right here is more user-friendly to change your colors in here. But knowing that we have all of the settings here in that affects, we can copy that to the other clips. So we could right-click on the lumetri color, say copy, or you can also use your short keys Control C to copy it or command C, and then on your second clip right here, where you would like to paste that effect, just hit Control V or Command V. Or you can also just right click here, in your effects controls, with that clip selected and say paste, and that will apply it as well to it. Now be careful however, because we've done a color correction first with this one. So we are also copying that warm tone that we've added here in this clip, so we might want to adjust your a tiny bit to it and reset that temperature again. Now we should somehow get the same look in the two shots. If you are going to copy a color correction, you always want to change some individual settings for each clip. Every clip is different, so every clip needs a different treatment as well. But it's a good starts to copy it and then start from the same base. All right guys. That was it for color correcting your clips inside Premier Pro. Practice with a demo footage. In the next lesson, we are going to mix some audio. Because we've been talking a lot about video and graphics, and animations and all, but what about audio effects. That's for the next lesson. 15. Audio Mixing: Time to grab your headphones because in this lesson we're going to do some ideal mixing. We have a bunch of clips here in the timeline. As you can see, it's actually just Kim walking and then suddenly she says something to the camera. So we have some audio here on this clip and then she's going to walk a little bit further, but we notice that her shoe lace aren't tied, so she trips over her shoelace then she looks down to realize that, and she says something else and then she's going to tie her shoes like that and as she comes up again, she raises to you her thumb and then walks further. Now, what I want to do with this edit is first optimize her speech, then I'm going to add some music to it and I'm going to mix the music together with her speech and finally we're going to add a little sound effect to it where she raises up her thumb that we hear this bell sounds. First let's have a listen to the sounds. Hello, my name is Kim. It's cold outside, so I'm going to take a walk to get warm. All right, let's listen to that again. But while you are listening to it, pay attention to here, to our audio meter. Hello, my name is Kim. It's cold outside, so I'm going to take a walk to get warm. At all time you would see that the sounds will not really come higher as minus 12 decibel and that this is the value in which sound is expressed. So how loud is the sounds? Zero decibel is the maximum. Over that, we are over driving the sounds, which is not good. But minus 12 is also not that much for speech. But we want to utilize the entire spectrum, so we're going to lift up the volume against that zero decibel. Don't go over it though. There are two ways to lift up the volume of your clip. Either through the volume, or through the gain. Let's have a look at how that works. First of all, let's start with the volume. There are a couple of ways to do that. First of, you can just select the clip, head over to our Effects Controls on top and then right here you'll find the Volume under the audio effects. Just expand that and here you can increase that level in decibels. But there is a more convenient way to do that and that is again, on the clip like we've seen with the time remapping. What I'm going to do is expand this track here. Again, hold down your Alt key and just scroll in that track. Let me just change my UI a little bit here. You can see the waveform here of Kim or speech and you will see this line here in the middle. We can lift that line up to increase the volume. But you will notice that you can only increase that to a maximum of six. I can't go higher than that. Since this speech here was laying around the minus 12 of decibel, hence I can only add a maximum of six decibel volume to it, the actual result will be somewhere at minus six decibels which is still not enough. So what I'm going to do is undo my action, Control Z or Command Z for the Mac users. So we have to gain this clip and gaining there's no limits. But do be aware that when we are going to gain something,that that is completely done digital. That means if we have a certain background noise in that clip, you will also gain that. So gaining is not always such a good idea and that is why the volume is limited, because with volume or increasing the volume, you will never hear that much noise or you're not emphasizing that noise. All right. So let's increase that gain. We can do so by right-clicking on that clip, heading over to Audio Gain. It's that simple. We have a few options right here. We can either say, well, we're going to adjust the gain by, that means we're going to add x amount of decibels or we can say, we want to set the gain to a certain decibel value, or, and this here is an option that I use very often. Normalize max peak too. It has already calculated that while I was thinking that this clip here was laying around to minus 12 decibel, apparently there's somewhere a peak. Maybe where Kim says, hi or something like that, that we didn't saw and that peak came to minus seven and half decibel. Premiere Pro make that calculations for us, hence by saying, normalize max peak to zero decibel, is going to gain the entire clip automatically to that zero decibel level. Let's select that option and press ''Okay'' But while I'm doing that, pay attention here down below to the waveform. Did you see that? The waveform also increased. Something that we did not saw with the volume. Premier Pro is visually showing it to you guys how much that clip has been gained. So if you see very a big spikes in your waveform, that means that that clip is pretty loud and if you don't see much wave forms like for example, this part right here where Kim is walking, let us listen to the sound, what we hear and that are her footsteps, which are not that loud. Now, does that mean that we have to gain that as well to the maximum? Let's do that for a moment and just see what happens. Right-click, ''Audio Gain'' normalize maximum peak too and it's going to increase that by 25.4 decibels, which is really a lot. Press ''Okay''. Let's have a listen right now. Does that sounds natural? Not really, yeah? Well, that was because not all sounds are expected to be so loud. Usually, speech and definitely if it's a strong speech like Kim is giving here in the beginning, you do want to maximize that to zero decibels. But other times where someone might be whispering or doing small things like typing on a keyboard, sounds like that usually don't have to sit that high. It's a sound which is present, but it doesn't have to stick on that zero decibel on top. Let me undo my action again. I'm also going to undo my actions again for that first clip that we've increased in gain before. Now everything is back to normal where we started from. Usually when you have an edit and you're going to increase the gain of each individual clip, you'll hear a very big difference in volume for each of those clips and that is not pleasant for the audience to listen to. What I usually do is first make my entire edits and so the loudest sounds are usually the more present sounds, so they can stick at that maximum. What I'm going to do now is just select my entire edit like this, right-click on it, and head over to Audio Gain. That way, Premiere Pro will make a calculations for your entire selection and if you are going to normalize all the peaks now to zero, press ''Okay'' it will pay attention to the entire edit. This way, all the clips are gained up, but they all have the same amount of gain, making the entire edits more natural. Let's have a listen. Hello, my name is Kim. It's cold outside, so I'm going to take a walk to get warm. That already was a lot better. Like I've also talked about in one of the previous lessons, you can hear where that cut is in the sounds. First you have a certain background noise and suddenly you will hear these children in the background and that hard cut is really noticeable. I'm going to create a cross dissolve or actually a gain dissolve for something between these two clips. I don't always know the exact same name, but something that we saw in the lesson about transition. So what I want to do here is only select here the part between the two audio clips. You will see that automatically, it will also select the video track while clicking in between of those two clips. But I can solo select in-between these two clips by holding down the Alt key and then clicking here in the intersection between the two audio clips, and now I can press shift D, which is the shortcut for my default audio transition. Control D was for your default video transition, shift D for the audio. Now, let's do that for every single clip in here. Let's also press here, shift D, shift D, shift D, and usually this way your audio will sound a lot more fluent. Hello, my name is Kim, it's cold outside, so I'm going to take a walk to get warm. Oopsy Daisy. The end camera sounds and the speech of Kim is good now. Let's add some music to it. I'm going to make some more room because we are going to use the second audio track for that like this. In my project penalty would see this folder right here, music and sound effects. Open that up. Right here we can find a music clip as opened that up as well. Right here we can preview that in the source monitor. Now, what I'm going to do is select a more louder part from this music, and I can just look at the wave form right here. Make a selection like that, it doesn't matter that much, and drag that selection to my timeline like this. Perhaps trim it. That's the same length as my edits. Let's have a listen and a look at the video now. Hello, my name is Kim. It's cold outside, so I'm going to take a walk to get it warm. In the beginning it was okay. Now, we heard the music and we saw Kim walking. But as she starts talking into the camera, the music was starting to get irritating. That was because the music was way too loud for her speech. What we have to do is keep the volume of the music in the beginning, then lower the volume when she started speaking and increase the volume again of the music when she stopped speaking. We can do that again by creating keyframes on the music loop itself, we know that this right here is the volume control. We can increase the volume of the music or we can decrease the volume of the music. Just like we've seen with the time remapping lesson, we can add keyframes in here. I'm going to take a pen tool, and right before she starts speaking on this doom and a tiny bit more, I'm going to create a keyframe right here by just clicking on that line. You can see it here, the keyframe. I'm going to move a bit forward in time where she starts speaking right here. I'm going to create a new keyframe, but also I'm going to pull this keyframe down like that. Now, let's have a listen to it how that sounds. Hello, my name is Kim. It's cold outside, so I'm going to take a walk to get it warm. That was already a ton better. We understood Kim, what she was saying because the volume of the music was much lower. Now, some might ask me, how much should I decrease the music? Well, that really depends on the type of music. Sometimes you have music with more lower tones and then you don't have to decrease it that much. But if you have music with high tones like high guitar tones with electric guitar annul, then you sometimes need to decrease that a bit more because those sounds are picked up by our ears much better. What I would always suggest is to create something in your timeline and always play it back, listen to the sounds, and watch visually on your program monitor what the effect looks like. After she has done her speech, we're going to increase the volume again. Create a keyframe like right before she stop speaking and gradually increase that volume. Go a tiny bit forward in time and bring that back to around 0 DC Bell. Now, you would see this dip right here. It's always better to have a smooth transition to that volume. Never capture a clip and go from one volume to another because your audience will hear that. Always go smoot with these things. Let's go a bit further in time because there's also right here apart where she says, oops to Daisy. Let's create a keyframe for that again. Second keyframe, pull that down. Forward keyframe, and pull that up again. Let's have a listen. Oops Daisy. Because this was a very short sentence. It was weird that the audio was dropping away there. What I'm going to do here is increase that volume of this part a tiny bit more, and that's okay, we can do that, even though that those key frames are already created, I can just stand here in the middle of this bottom line and increase that. By doing that, I'm taking the two of those keyframes. I'm going to set this to minus eight, minus seven somewhere, which is the half of the minus 14 that I have right here. Let's have a listen to it right now. Oops Daisy. That was a lot better. It's a short sentence, so it's not irritating me so much that the volume of the music is a bit louder than her speech. But you do want to avoid to having too much of these drops all the time, definitely, if it goes for a small sentence or something. The final thing that I'm going to do is add a sound effects to it, so right here where she raised up a thumb. You can also natch our play heads by using the arrow keys on our keyboards to go one frame forward or backwards, because right here we want to have that bell sounds and it's right here as well. In my project panel there's double-click on it, and the bell sound starts right here. You can also visually see it in the wave form. Set an endpoint for that, and drag that to your timeline and align it to your play heads right there. Let's play this right now. Look at that guys an awesome bell sounds. Maybe that bell sound was a bit too loud, but I want to make it too presence like decrease at volume a tiny bits like this. Let's listen again. That was perfect. There you go guys. This is your first audio mix that you've done. What are the final things that I want to show to you guys is also if you have lots of tracks and you're going to start changing the volume, and again of everything, then you sometimes want to mute or solo certain tracks and that can be done here from each track settings. You can either select to mute a certain tracks, let's say that we've just done some editing here. I only want to listen near to Kim voice. What I can do is mute the audio track like that, it's enabled now. What I'm going to play this timeline, you will not hear. Hello, my name is Kim. It's cold outside, so I'm going to. That is all good and well, but sometimes if you have like 10 liters of sounds, then it's easier to solo that track, and that is with the S button right here. I can also say solo this one, which means mute everything but this track. Hello, my name is Kim. It's cold outside, so I'm going to. Now, for those of you who would like to experiment a bit more with audio mixing, there is actually an audio panel inside Adobe Premier Pro, it's right here. The audio clip mixer, and there's also an audio track mixer. Then just open up that to the window right here the audio track mixer and instead of two mixers, and said, that way you can use these sliders. You can use the suffer spiders to change the volume of your track or from a certain clip. This is a bit more advanced and that is also the reason why I'm not covering this. Also, I don't use it myself. I always do my mixing like this, like I've shown in this lesson right here. For really more advanced audio mixing and manipulation, I would suggest to install Adobe Audition, which is right here, which also comes with their Creative Cloud subscription. It's the same as what After Effects. I mean, we can do some creative things in premier, and that is true. But if you really want to create like these high standards, visual effects and 3D and all of that, then you will need After Effects for that, same thing goes with audio mixing. But we have some basic tools which really do your work, and I do have to be honest, I am not working that much in audition. Guys, we've been mixing our audio now, in the next lesson we're going to take a look at some audio effects. Just like with video effects, we also have some audio effects. I'll see you guys there. 16. Audio Effects: We're going to continue with audio effects, so let's bring in those headphones again. Previously, we have seen that we can find effects in our effects library right here. We can see some video effects and transitions over here, but also audio effects over there. Now we can find to tons of audio effects and here as you can see, but it's something that we don't use that often. If you really want to get into the details of audio manipulation and fixing things, and you want to go to that audition program. But for basic things like clearing up the sounds, making it sound better, and perhaps adding some reverb to it. We can use some of these audio effects and they are actually much more accessible through a different window. Let's locate that. I'm going to collapse this right here, head over to the menu at tops select to "Window", and from here and go to select "Essential Sound", which is again another panel here on the right side. Let's select a clip first. Let's start off with this right here, where Kim is giving her speech. This clip right here is a dialogue clip because Kim is speaking into the camera. From this panel we can then choose that this script here is a dialogue. Click on that, which will give you specific options for that clip type. If you have selected something wrong, you can say clear audio type and select something different, for example, sound effects. But let's go back now to dialogue. That's going to go through all of these options, just the ones that we used in most often. That is to start with repair. Something that happens so often is where you have the sound of a refrigerator or an air conditioning in the backgrounds. You can remove that sounds using this right here, reduce noise. Just enable that check box and increase how much you would like to reduce that. Don't just do something in here and then continue with your edits. Always change a setting, and then listen to the sounds. Hello. My name is Kim, its cold outside. So I'm going to take a walk to get it warm. Before you are going to listen to your track, always make sure to solo the track that you are manipulating, or you can also mute to the other close. Well, that's just click on "Solo track". Now let's listen with that reduced noise, how that sounds. Hello. My name is Kim, its cold outside. So I'm going to take a walk to get it warm. Let's uncheck that box and let's listen to it again. Hello. My name is Kim, its cold outside. So I'm going to take a walk. As you can hear it, it was a bit of that wind in the background wasn't irritating because it was so minor. But if you would have more wind or a refrigerator or anything like that, you can use that option right here. Let's close the repair and let's head over to the clarity. By enabling the dynamics right here, we can make the sounds more presence, and it's a simple slider, as you can see. Well, let's increase that value of tiny bits and let's listen to that sound again. Hello. My name is Kim, its cold outside. So I'm going to take. Let's increase at a tiny bit more and see what that does. Hello. My name is Kim, It's cold outside. So I'm going to take a walk to get it warm. As you can hear, this really makes camera voice pop out. That is great if you're going to mix music with it. Because often the sound of speech is not always that clear, but it has to fight up against volume of the music. Let's have a listen to this with the music now. Hello. My name is Kim, its cold outside. So I'm going to take a walk to get it warm. As you can see, her voice became so present. But I can actually lift up the volume of that music a tiny bit more. That is great because the less we have to push then or mixed that music, the better. Let's increase that a tiny bit more like this, and let's play that again. Hello. My name is Kim, its cold outside. So I'm going to take a walk to get it warm. Let's listen to that again. I'm going to disable, select that clip the dynamics again with such a high volume from the music, Kim is not that understandable anymore. Hello. My name is Kim, its cold outside. So I'm going to take a walk to get it warm. That was then which is one simple checkbox, the dynamics. Further in these settings under the "Creative" tab right here, we can also find the reverb. This is also a setting that we have with this right here with sound effects. I'm just going to show it to you guys with this clip right here. This is that bell sounds, let's just listened to that again. I'm going to select that click on "Sound effect". Also here we can find that same reverb option. Enable reverb and select a "Preset". Do you want heavy reverb, light reverb, outside reverb or room reverb. For those of you who don't know what reverb is, it is certain echo that is unique to certain space. A room will have a different reverb than a church where there's a lot of reverb. Let's enable some reverb criteria. Let's like that heavy reverb, solo that track for us to listen how that sounds. Let's uncheck that box. It's still a little minor, let's enable that again. I'm going to increase the amount of that heavier reverb. There you go a lot of echo to it and this might be something that you would hear in a church. That way you can adapt your sound effects to your speech or even your music to the room that sounds might be playing in. Now all of these properties right here that we are changing within the essential sounds panel are actually effects from the effects library, and they are being applied to the clip automatically as we make changes in here. Let's select your clip number 2, scroll a little bit down. Right here under the audio effects you will see "Dynamics Processing", which was that effect that we've applied to it. What I'm going to enable as well, the reverb for example, then you will also see that studio reverb has been applied to that clip automatically. We don't have to worry too much anymore about these audio effects. All the essential effects that we use on a daily basis are edits within that essential sounds panel. For more specific adjustments, you can browse through the other audio effects. But honestly, I never do that. Whenever I need something very specific, I use Adobe Audition for that. Guys, this was the last lesson in line. We are now done with our edits, we are able to cut, we are able to create animations, graphics, we know how to mix our audio properly. Now it's time to export the edits that we have right here. That is for the next lesson. 17. Export Settings: We have just made an awesome edit inside Premier Pro, it's now we would like to export that so we can share it with our friends or through the web. There are two ways to export your video, through Premier Pro, and I'm going to show you both of them. Let's get started with the first way. The first way to do that is by actually going up to the menu Select "File", and then head over to Export, and from here you want to click on "Media". There's sometimes you will see that this selection right here is grayed out that you can't click on it. That is because you haven't selected your sequence in here. If we would select, for example, just my project panel, and I would go back to the menu on top, File, Export, you will see that it is grayed out. That is because you want to tell to premier, which sequence has to be exported. Remember that we can create multiple sequences, that's why we have to say to Premier, this sequence has to be exported. So that's why you want to click on your sequence or your timeline in this case, that is my edit. Once that is done, you can go back to the menu select file, and head over to Export, click on "Media", which will open up a brand new window. You will see a bunch of settings in here, but it's actually pretty simple because there are just three settings that you have to pay attention to. The first one is the format which is up here. This is going to be the codec or the format to which you would like to export to. We have, for example, QuickTime, we also have MPEG2, we have AVI on top, and the one which is selected is the H.264 codec. This one right here is the most used codec of them all. The H.264 codec. Currently also the H.265 codec exists, but it's not that standard yet, so we still use H.264. It could be that you don't see that in your list right here and that is because you don't have that codec installed. In order to install that codec, the only thing that you have to do is download QuickTime and I have it opened right here a Chrome window, QuickTime. Now I believe that if you are working on a Mac that you had this installed by default, but Windows suitors always want to install that and you can find a link to the speech as well in the class description. I mean, just minimize that back because we are going to export. Then the next thing that you want to do is select a preset that goes together with that format. When I'm going to click on that dropdown menu, you'll see a bunch of options, and most of them are actually familiar to us. For example, the Facebook presets, we have the Twitter preset if you are going to export and upload it to Twitter, we also have some Vimeo and YouTube presets right there. What I usually do is select, Match Source-medium bitrate. That way you are sure that you are taking the exact same settings from your sequence settings, the resolution, frame rate, etc, and bring that to your export settings. By selecting medium bitrate right here, you're reducing that size so that it's more sharable. Or if I would like to have a different setting to export in, then that my sequences, I usually go for one of the YouTube settings which are a great presets. By the way, all of these presets are very similar to each other. If you would select here, for example, the Facebook 1080p HD presets, or the YouTube 1080p HD presets, they are about the same, so don't worry too much about that. Now, usually when I have created a 4K sequence inside Premiere Pro and I've been editing in there, but I would like to downscale that to 1080p, then we'd select the YouTube HD preset right here. However, if you are working in a 1080p sequence and you're going to upgrade that to a 4K export, don't please don't do that. You can do it but you are just losing in quality. If you don't have 4K, you can't create 4K. It is four times the resolution size, so Premier has to magically come up with extra pixels, which is never good idea. Let us go for that YouTube 1080p HD presets, which is something that I use most of the time. Then the next setting that you have to choose and is the last setting, which is the output name. Click on that and that way you can browse through your windows and select where that file has to be saved. I'm just going to save that you're in my folder, a walk in the park so that everything sits nicely together. Give that a name, for example, Kim is walking and then press "Save". Now, all these settings are correct and that's the only thing you have to do. If you want so you can dive into the video tab right here, head over into the settings here, maybe change the resolution, the frame rate, and all or bitrate settings, but really that's not necessary at all. Maybe in an advanced class we could go through all of these things, but nine out of 10 or almost 10 out of 10, you would just go for that preset and it is fine. Because what we are doing eventually is exporting for the Web, YouTube, Facebook and all, or just sharing that on a thumb drive with our friends or something. These settings are great. Now the last thing that we have to do is just hit on that "Export" button. There we go and now the video will start exporting. Unfortunately we can't do anything else we have to let it to export or do its work and just wait until it's done and then we can start using Premier again. The clip has been exported, let's check it out here, I'm going to minimize Premier Pro because on my desktop in the folder, a walk in a park, you will see that the clip is right in here and I can just play that back like so. Pretty awesome. You can see that the quality is actually pretty good here, I'm viewing this even on a 4K screen and the 1080p sequence looks pretty good. All right guys, I'm going to open up Premiere again because I want to show you the second way to export your video and that has actually through a different program. When you install Premier Pro it will also come with a program called Media Encoder, which I have in my doc right here. I'm just going to launch it, there we go. This application gives us two great advantages. First of all, if you have multiple sequences, you can select all of them and import them in this program. Let me show that to you. I only have one year on my project panel, but works the same with multiple sequences. You select one or multiple, and drag that's like this into the program like that. You want to drag it here in your queue panel. As you can see, we are in a list view, so that means we can have multiple sequences in here. Then it works exact same way. We can select our codec from the first tab right here, so just select H.264, then from the presets, maybe go for that match source-high bitrate, you'll always good with that, that finally the output file, again, maybe in that same folder, but I'm going to give that a different name, Kim in the park and hit "Save". Then the last thing that we just have to do is press the "Play" button here on top. There we go. You will see a preview right here while that is exporting. But a great way of doing it through this is that I can just go back to Premier Pro and maybe create a different sequence or make some changes to my edits right here, that doesn't matter and at all time it could just look back to how the export is going, it's going good. Let's just keep on editing here, it doesn't matter. We can just keep on using Premier Pro. That is the story behind it. The export is going on in a different programs. That's why we can still use premier. In a meantime, the export is done. We can also see that here in the list on the right side of this little check mark right here and through that, we know that the export has been completed. All right guys, you have now seen all the basic options within Premier Pro, so you have a very strong foundation now of knowledge of these programs or you can start editing professional videos. What I have for you left right now is a lesson where I'm going to go through some more detailed options within Premier that are going to be very handy once you are getting more familiar with the program. I'll see you guys there. 18. Useful Settings: When you are starting out with Adobe Premiere Pro, I usually don't recommend my students to go into the settings and change a bunch of things. Premiere Pro works great out of the box. But I do would like to go through a few of these settings and just show you guys where they are, because along the road, you will see that you do need some of these settings. The first one of those are just the general settings of Adobe Premiere Pro, actually the application settings. Those can be found in the menu on top. Just head over to edit right here, and down below you'll see Preferences. These here are all the preferences categories. Just select either one of them, for example, General, because once these boxes open, you can select all the other ones, again from the column here on the left side. I want you guys to know that this exist and I would also recommend to just go through all of these settings right here, because there are few things in here that could make a unique workflow for you. For example, under the General setting already, we can find a different way on how we would like to open up the bins inside the project panel right here. If we were to double-click on one of these folders, what should happen? Should that bin open up in a new tab, or should it open up in a new window, or in the same place? What would happen if we would control or alt-click on that folder? As you can see there, these small settings could make a more personal workflow inside Premiere Pro. So it's just very important to know that it is there. We can find some more things in here. For example, under the Appearance category, we can change the brightness of the program, we can make the buttons more lighter, as you can see here. Here's an example where we can reset that back to defaults. Small things for a more personal experience with Premiere Pro. Now besides this, there's also a more technical preference that I definitely want you guys to know about, and that is under the Media Cache category right here. Every time that you are going to render your clips inside the timeline, and by that I don't mean exporting but actually rendering some heavy effects in your timeline, then that clip is being exported onto your computer. From this setting right here, you can select to which hard drive or to which location that is being exported. Because after a while, your hard drive will get full because of all these render files and that way you can change that to a different location by just pressing on "Browse." For example, on my D drive where I have tons of more space. Select folder, there we go. Because I'm changing this, I know I have to select, whether I would like to remove the existing media cache or delete it. Let's just delete that. There are a few more options in here, just have a look at it yourself in the program settings. One last thing that I want to show you guys in here and that it's under Memory. If you are working on an older laptop or computer and you have trouble playing back or editing your videos, then you might want to allocate more memory to Premiere Pro. You can do that by actually giving less RAM or memory to other applications. Just decrease this value right here to, for example, three gigabytes and then just hit, "Okay." That way you have more available memory for Premiere Pro and everything will go a little bit more smoother. Let's press "OK." Next to the General Application Preferences, we also have Specific Window Preferences. Every window right here inside Premiere Pro has its own tiny little menu with some options into it. We can locate that menu through these three little lines right here, which is the Menu button. Click on that to reveal some options for that specific panel. Some give you some other options like with here, the Project panel, you can see that we have some other options. Also here within the timeline, we have some other options. Also here with the Program Monitor as well, and every single one of these panels has such an option menu. Again, very convenient to know that it is there. If you are looking for something specific, you know that you can find it in there as well. Now there are two panels that even have a larger menu, so that they can serve you with some more functionality. That is the Program monitor and the Timeline. We can find that extra little menu through this little gear or tool right here. Click on that, and that gives you some more options as well. The same thing goes with the Program monitor right here, which gives you a bunch of options. From that Program monitor, here are actually two settings that I do like to show to you guys. First up is the High Quality Playback setting. You can enable that, and by doing this, and also by setting your resolution to full, you could actually play back your videos here at the highest quality possible. That is good if you would like to review your edits for the specific colors that you've changed into it or a specific effects. But do be aware that it takes up lots of resources from your computer. So maybe if you are having trouble playing it back, then you might want to disable that function through this menu right here, High Quality Playback like that. Then the final setting from this menu, and I see that I already had that enabled from when I was preparing this lesson, that's actually called the Safe Margins which is right here, also from that same menu. It's currently enabled. When I'm going to disable that, you will see these lines disappear and I'm going to enable that again, there we go. They appear again now. I really like to have this setting up because that allows me to align my texts better or to add certain graphics more in line with the rest. So it's like a helpful grid's actually there. Then the final setting that I want to show you guys is on top here, in the menu under Sequence, and then all the way down below here we can find Selection Follows Playhead. Very often that option is selected by default and it usually annoys me very much. What that does is, when I'm going to move my playhead in the timeline, you will see that automatically, the clips below that are selected. When you are working on a specific clip here you have that selected, you are working on it in the effects controls. You just would like to have a quick peek at another clip, then that one will be selected and your effects controls will then show the settings for that clip. Sometimes that is very irritating. Note that that setting sits here under the menu on top, Sequence that you can disable that from here, Selection Follows Playhead. Now you know where the settings are hidden within Premiere Pro. You have the General settings and also each panel has its own setting too. All right guys, that was it for this course. I have one last lesson left for you and I really invite you to watch that because in there, I'm going to give you a final assignment. It's going to be really cool because you can actually upload that assignment here through Skillshare so that I can have a look to it and maybe give you some feedback. Thanks for watching. 19. Conclusion: Let me start by saying congratulations. It's not easy to sit through an entire online class, but you did it. We've just learned the entire foundation of Premiere Pro, a professional video editing program. Now, it's up to you to practice these basic techniques so that you can get familiar with the program and after that, you can start experimenting yourself and create really stunning edits. To help you further with that, I can recommend to subscribe to our YouTube channel or email list. Every week, we publish two video tutorials and very often, it's about Premier Pro, and just to make you warm, here's my colleague, Yannick, sinking through the ground. This step was entirely made inside Premier Pro, but it's more advanced, so give it some time. To practice the skills that you've just learned from this course, I want you to make an edit with the demo footage provided. Use Eclipse to tell the story, apply a basic color correction to make the video more appealing and make sure that you've mixed the audio and music correctly. Don't forget to add a fun intro animation in the beginning. You can use text or different shapes to design something, then use keyframes to animate a certain effect. This can also be on a clip. Perhaps dive a bit deeper in the effects library and see what else you can find in there. Post your final result in the project step where you can find also more information about this assignment, and I'd be happy to have a look at it and give you some feedback to help you improve even more. Thank you so much for participating in this online class and welcome to a whole new world of professional video editing.
