About This Class

Editing is the art of storytelling through the ordering of events.  We create meaning by adding new footage, cutting some out, and rearranging the whole thing until we have a story that compels our audience.

In our digital world, we assemble footage into compelling stories with editing software.  So, in our Skillshare, we’re going to teach you basic and intermediate skills necessary to edit like a professional using our favorite program – Adobe Premiere Pro.  In addition to learning the basics, we'll show you techniques to fine-tune the perfect videos and speed up your process (from inputting footage to outputting final formats).  You’ll learn new skills by making your own HOW TO video that combines your narration with footage demonstrating something that’s important to you. 

Whether you’re showing your friends a fun talent, teaching how your new product works at a meeting, or making lessons on Skillshare – videos are an effective format to demonstrate “HOW TO” do something. However, unless we are ONE-TAKE-WONDERS, we often end up with lots of footage that needs to be edited together.  While learning editing techniques, our course will help you craft all that footage into something meaningful by teaching you how to shape a simple HOW TO video into an interesting story.

Everyone has something meaningful to share. Consider our class an onramp for editing together what’s important with Adobe Premiere. 

** There are 11 Lesson videos + 4 optional extras teaching further editing skills

2. Capturing Meaningful Footage: - hello and welcome to our school share class. - Cut it out. - It's all about editing with Adobe Premiere, - and in this skill share class, - you're going to be creating a how to video and not only a how to video, - but a meaningful how to video. - So this lesson is going to be all about how do you capture that footage and how do you - shape that footage? - And I gather things. - They're going to make this a meaningful how to. - And then at the very end, - we'll talk about some technical issues, - along with getting that footage and using Adobe Premiere. - I do want to say just right up front that at any point you have questions or there's - anything going on post things Teoh the community board. - And if I can't get to those answers, - then I'm sure there's somebody else in this class community who will be able to do that. - So I'm looking forward to interacting with you and seeing the final products that you - create. - So in creating a how to video first, - things are that we're going to ask you to gather two kinds of footage. - We're gonna have you capture narration or interview footage and they're gonna have to - capture B roll footage. - Now the narration interview footage is where somebody is going to be talking about the - skill that you are teaching or the product that you're showing somebody how to do. - This is the point where people talk directly to the camera or they could do interview style - , - talking slightly off the camera to another person. - But this is going to be the spoken element of our video. - We're going to use this as a base layer that everything else will be added onto. - But that is going to be ultimately your narrator speaking through your entire video. - The second kind of footage that we're going to get is what we're calling B roll footage, - and this is going to be you actually doing the skill or using the product. - And then also, - when we start talking about meaningful footage, - it's gonna be all the extra stuff that you get that helps shape the world or show why you - use this product or chose people how to get further engage with the product. - So that's the kind of footage that you're going to get. - But now how do you actually get meaningful how to footage? - Well, - a lot of times when people start talking about how to do something, - they just talk about how to actually do the steps and we're toe learn that. - Well, - that's just the middle part of the story. - There's actually two other elements that you can share that is really going to make this a - complete story, - something with the beginning, - a middle and an end or three acts, - as we often hear about with movies or with plays and things like that. - So talking to you about the three act structure, - let's get let's start off with Act One. - What are the things that have drawn you towards doing this skill? - Or what are the things that led you to create this product, - or what's a bit about yourself that actually leads into this skill or this product? - You're going to show people how to use? - What is what is that element that captivates you? - This is our story element, - and the key that I like to think about here is conflict. - Maybe. - What's the conflict that this skill helps you overcome? - So if I was teaching somebody how to play guitar, - I might talk to them about how music for me actually helps me overcome a lot of dark things - in my life. - Or it helps me really connect with people and helps me find community. - Or if I'm sharing about a product, - maybe it's, - you know, - we saw this happening in the world. - We saw people not being able to do this. - So I created this, - and this is how you use this thing right here. - The act one story is all about the things that are going to draw somebody in and give them - kind of the world and the reasons for why they're going to ultimately listen to this next - part which is act to this is your skills. - This is your actual doing of this is we're going to teach people the steps Iraq to are the - steps of your skill that you were teaching people. - And in this when you're teaching people the skills to teach them things that are very, - uh, - short, - concise, - keep it pretty clear on. - And for this kosher video, - let's keep that just a few skills to a few steps along the way, - and then this part here, - once you have this laid out there is the ending. - There is our Act three. - This is where we invite people. - This is the invitation. - We invite them to engage further with skill that we've just shown them the product that we - should show them how to use our whatever it is this this is the part of the video where we - give them maybe further resource is to explore. - Or if we were teaching them how to juggle, - maybe point them towards juggling communities, - they're out there. - Or if we're sharing a product with them, - show them how they can actually get a hold of that and how they can actually use that in - their life on different ways that they engage. - So think about it like this. - Your act one has brought them into the skills that you then show them in your act to the AC - three is you invite them to engage further with skill or with the product or with you at - the end of the day. - So it's a step for a constant step forward process towards the ultimate thing that you're - teaching them. - This is how you create something that is meaningful that draws people into how to do - something to demonstrate this three act structure of including the extras of this class a - link to a video that we created, - showing people how to use a particular product called Reclaim Micro Garden. - And on our narration track, - you'll hear the narrator talking about starting off in the act one the conflicts that they - wanted to overcome with creating this product. - So the conflicts where we live in urban environments we don't have much time on, - we don't have the space to create a full guard. - And these were the conflicts that things that people face that ultimately led to creating - this micro garden. - And then we talked to people how to use this group. - Michael Garden What exactly you're going to do the easy steps to get this thing flourishing - . - And then ultimately, - we end with time inviting people further into how you can engage with this skill and with - this product at the end of the day. - So that's how you're going to do it on the narration level. - On the B roll level, - you're going to create visuals that go into these three categories as well, - so you'll see in our video we started off with the very beginning process just this big - pile of wood. - And you know, - that's in urban environments that you're gonna have just trash each and you're gonna have - that. - That's kind of your conflict that you might see in an urban environment. - So we want to start with that kind of conflict element. - And then how do we take this thing into our product here in the middle? - And then we actually showed the progress. - We showed this skill and we actually show the steps in R B roll of doing that. - And then at the very end, - we wanted to invite people further in, - and so we decided we'll ultimately what they're going to do with this skill of creating - gardens is they're gonna eat the microgreens. - So we wanted to go from very beginning of grabbing the pile of wood to making the product, - using the product, - using this skill and then showing the invitation into the meal at the end of the day. - So that's how on your B roll level, - you can actually show you can tell the whole story. - So say you're doing you're teaching the juggling, - skilled somebody, - and you wanna show yourself as a kid juggling. - Maybe you grew up in a family that juggled a lot. - And you can show that the visuals of that, - as you talk about maybe the conflicts that it helped you overcome, - show your skill, - then ultimately show ways to invite people further in and engage further with that skill or - engage with that product or showing them how to use. - Okay. - And so a couple technical aspects that I want to talk to you about. - Now that we've talked about how Teoh gather meaningful footage, - let's talk about the technical ways of gathering that footage. - If you are going to use a camera, - you can use high end cameras all the way down to iPhones and anything for this class. - We're not being technical, - a very specific. - We're not going to get into doing a lot of like technical color correction, - which would require problem higher end cameras as well. - This is a class where you can use just whatever you have. - A Z could see. - I'm actually just recording this with my with my computer camera right here. - So any type of camera works for this. - What you do want to make sure you get you do. - A good job on, - though, - is audio and lighting. - Now for audio, - there are ways that you can record with a separate audio device, - and then you can sink that footage in. - We're assuming for this class that you are actually just going to use the audio that you - catch with the camp. - Same A camera recording. - It's ultimately going with footage that has your video crack and your audio track. - We're not assuming that you have access to external audio recording devices. - If you do want to do that, - there are ways to sink that audio, - um, - in premier, - and there are great extra programs. - I use one called plural eyes, - so look into that one. - But for this class, - we're just assuming that you're going to be using your onboard camera microphone. - So a big thing with that is onboard camera microphones will automatically adjust their - audio levels just based on the room that they're in. - So if you have a loud hum that's going in the background, - maybe have an air conditioning that's going, - it's going to adjust its volume to that thing, - and you're gonna have that really loud in the background. - So try to record in a quiet environment. - And if you can turn off air conditioning, - turn off fans obviously turn off cellphones and things like that, - but make sure that you can actually hear a person. - Interesting thing with movies and with videos. - At the end of days, - you can have the lowest quality recording of the visuals. - But if you have bad audio and you have noises and things that instantly takes people out of - takes him out of the visual, - that's happening, - so do what you can to make sure that people don't have to strain to listen to the audio. - Then day now we're gonna teach you how to do volume adjustments within the program, - but we're not gonna be showing you how to clean up audio. - If you have a funky noises and things like that in the background, - eso try to get the best audio that you can. - The second thing is lighting. - Make sure that you can actually see your subject's face. - That's the basic short of it weighs that things that happened that sometimes block that is - , - if you are recording in front of a window like this, - you, - ah, - well, - sometimes get like a giant silhouette on the person's face because you're camera will start - adjusting for, - uh, - lighting in the background. - Things like that. - Ways to compensate for that, - like I've turned on overhead lights or you can bring a lamp and shine signed on to face. - The big thing is, - we want to make sure we see people's eyes. - You want to make sure that you just kind of full visual of their face. - Now, - in the video that we showed you our how to video, - we never showed the person's face at all. - But you might choose to do that in your video. - You might want to show the person that is actually talking, - and so in that case, - we definitely want to see their eyes another way that you can. - You can capture this. - You can have the lamps there, - but you can also get those kind of half inch thick white poster boards, - and those things actually really good, - a reflecting light off. - So if you're filming outside, - ah, - sunlight will hit off that and bounce onto somebody's face, - and you can fill in the shadows that sometimes it here. - If you're filming outside of your film next to a window. - Sometimes you have light from one direction, - casting a shadow on the other side, - or you have, - like from overhead, - and that's casting shadows here. - So getting something like that, - it serves like a bounce card. - It bounces light onto somebody's face. - You can also put them just angle them around windows short of it is. - Let's just make sure we see people's faces really helps when, - when you're showing their face and when people are when people are listening to your video - . - All right to last technical aspects of this I will be using Premier CC, - which is the most recent version on the adobe is created. - You can download a trial version of this, - I believe a 30 day trial version that you can use. - Actually, - when Sisi came out, - switched over completely. - It's great version, - but I love the earlier versions of Premiere as well. - So if you are working with 6.0 or 5.5 or anything earlier, - you will be just fine, - because all these skills we're gonna teach you are in those earlier versions. - You just need Teoh. - You're just sometimes might have to search around. - They might be in a different place, - but they should all be there again. - If you have any issues or anything, - just post to the boards and we'll discuss. - I've worked with a lot of the earlier versions of Premiere, - so I know where a lot of those things are. - The last thing is storage video footage is massive on DSO. - You can put it all on your computer or on your laptop, - and I would work just fine. - I like using an external hard drive to keep my video footage just because it's just massive - . - Um, - it takes up a lot of space. - If you do get an external drive, - I recommend connecting something with FireWire 800 ports. - That's what I use for a lot of our editing. - Or you go even faster with that with USB 3.0 or thunderbolt connections. - But those drives can be more expensive as well, - so I like to sticking with FireWire 800. - It works really well at the end of the day, - but do not feel like you have to have an external hard drive for this. - It's just one thing that ah recommendation that I might have, - but you're just fine if you don't have it. - All right. - So that is our intro lesson here to talk to you about how? - What kind of footage you're gathering. - We've talked to you how to gather meaningful footage and then told you some of the - technical aspects are really looking forward to the next lessons where you gotta bring that - footage in and we're looking forward to seeing the meaningful how to stories that you tell - . 3. Creating a New Project: - all right. - Hello and welcome to lessen, - too. - So I hope you had a good time getting your footage that you're able to craft it together in - a really great story, - cause now we're gonna bring all of that footage and everything you have into Adobe Premiere - . - So first things first, - let's open up from near here. - And I've been actually really excited about Premier CC. - It actually was the version that finally got me to switch over fully into premiere here. - They've added a whole lot of cool new features and things. - But if you are using Premier Seat, - uh, - anything earlier than Premier CC, - I use those programs as well and actually really liked him. - They stuff that really great workflow between premiere and after effects and photo shop and - all the other great programs that were there. - So if you're using previous versions of Premiere, - you've got it just is great of a system just is powerful. - So all right, - so when you first start the program, - you're given this welcome to Adobe Premiere Window. - You can open up files that you've done before, - but for this purpose, - we're going to create a new project. - So let's click on new project. - Your new project window gives you a chance to name your new projects. - Let's call this, - uh, - skill share. - And let's call this, - uh, - how to video. - And then you get a chance to choose your location. - Regan, - do where you're going to save this file. - So I am going to choose a folder that I've created on my desktop called Skill Share on. - She's here. - We got some things going there, - So let's choose that. - Saved their now under this general tab, - leave most these things where they are. - One thing you might want to consider looking into is your render here. - Ah, - you might have three options on your computer. - Mine here has to like using the open sea El version here works pretty fast and just Well, - the second tab over here is your scratch disks. - Now, - scratch disks are where Adobe is going to put files that it creates along the way. - So, - like if you put a new effect over a clip, - it needs to render that section and it will put it on Ah, - hard drive somewhere. - Now, - these files can end up taking up a good amount of space And so if you do have an external - hard drive, - I recommend using that. - If you don't have an external hard drive, - that's just fine. - You can keep it on your computer, - but you do get to choose which folder you place all this stuff in. - I have an external hard drive here, - uh, - and folder right here that I'm choosing when you do, - uh, - choose a folder, - you'll see that it saves it in here. - Uh, - your W premiere pro preview files. - And also your auto save files everything. - So you choose that main folder, - you got to go down the whole list here, - just keep hitting. - Browse, - and it will keep going back to that same folder. - Choose. - And then here's also your auto saves. - Auto saves air. - Really great, - because sometimes something happens. - Your system freezes and crashes. - Look for this auto save folder and that will actually bring up previous versions. - Will tell you the time which it saved it. - It's just really helpful. - I've definitely had times where that has saved my life. - So all right, - so this jump on in What you got all us? - It hit. - Okay, 4. Importing Assets: - All right. - Great. - So this is what Premiere Pro started looking like from version six onward. - If you're running version 5.5 or earlier, - it'll probably look something like this for this purpose. - I'm going to set things up to look like it does for version six and onward. - I really like this. - Ah, - workspace. - I'll quickly run you through what all the windows are here and establish some terminology - that will use to the whole thing. - So we have four windows going around here. - You will also have these in 5.5 earlier. - Just look for the names of the windows in the upper left corner of the window. - So here we have the project window project windows. - We're gonna bring in all of our assets. - I'm going to show you about that in this lesson. - And then of here we have the source window. - When we open up a video before we start editing it, - it opens up here in our source window because it is our source clip that we're going toe - work with from the source window. - It goes down into the timeline here. - Timeline is where we will edit all of our footage and then we go up here to the program - window. - The program window is going to play everything that it sees on the timeline down here. - Now you notice is I click these boxes that a yellow outline forms around, - and that means that that particular box is activated. - That's actually going to be really important to use keyboard shortcuts. - Because if you go to use a particular keyboard shortcut and you wanted to work in the - source window, - but you have your project window activated, - it's not gonna work in your source window. - So for some reason, - something's not happening in particular window. - Take a look just to make sure that that window is actually activated as you go through. - Now, - one other thing I want to point out to you in the windows is that there are action buttons - along the way. - So if you are watching a clip in the source, - wind up well here, - I'm gonna just quickly bring in a clip. - Uh, - don't worry how I'm doing this right now. - I'm gonna show you just a second. - But if I open up a clip in this window, - then you'll see that these buds are activated and I'm gonna show you about those individual - buttons along the way. - Just want toe make. - Draw your attention to them right now, - then, - down here in the timeline. - We also have some of those action buttons, - but they are the tools that we will be using. - I'll show you about those tools when we get to that section, - and then you also have them over here. - You also have them over here as well in the program. - And they look very similar to what is here in the source window. - All right, - so whenever we've got those, - uh, - let's see. - Actually, - one other thing I want to point out to you is that there are also tabs for a majority of - these windows and we'll be going through some of these tabs won't be going through all of - them in this steel share. - But I just want to draw your attention to show you that those tabs air there as well. - All right, - great. - So the me clear out and bring everything back to a blank screen. - All right, - So let me show you how you're going to import all your assets. - Importing assets into the program is your first step and you can bring in whatever you want - to use for your how to video. - You're gonna bring in all your footage. - If you did extra audio, - you'll bring that in. - If you're gonna use music, - you'll bring that into here. - If you're gonna use photos, - all that starts all that needs to come into this project section here now bringing ah - bringing footage into this area is really simple. - It's just import process. - Teoh import everything that you're going to do to import needs to get to this import window - . - There's four ways ultimately get to this import window. - So take your pick. - You can either go file import and that brings it up. - You can hit command I or control I. - If you're on a PC on your keyboard that brings it up, - you can double click in a blank space. - That's a convenient way to bring it up. - You can also right click and bring it and import in assets that way. - Well, - Either way, - Ugo, - it brings you to this import window. - I have a folder that I've put some footage in for today's lesson. - So let me grab the clips that I want to choose and then hit Import. - There you go. - Now you have all these items in here in the project window. - I'll show you one other way that you can import these in. - You can go over here to this tab called Media Browser and Media Browser shows You basically - all the hard drives connected your computer. - You can choose that hard drive, - open it up, - go all the way to Well, - you're footages and click on the folder. - And there you go. - You have which would you want? - You can highlight it, - right? - Click it and hit import. - When you do that, - it is going to do exactly the same thing. - Which is just bring it all here into your basic project Been. - Now let me show you how to bring in assets without using the import window. - Sometimes you'll find this handy Teoh. - Actually, - just bring up a finder window and maybe already have your footage organized into another - folder someplace eso You can actually just grab that folder that you have assets in and - drag and drop that into the project window here and there you go. - Premier brings that on in. - It keeps the name that has for it. - And when I opened this up, - it has audio files in there. - And while I'm here, - I'll show you also that when you have a clip that has both visuals and audio with it to the - left of the name here it shows both a both a clip and also an audio file. - That's to say that this clip has both those assets to it. - If you bring in something that is just an audio file, - it'll have just like a wave. - What looks like a wave away file right next to it, - Not saying that this is just an audio file. - The same thing goes, - if you bring in a clip that is just visuals, - it won't have the audio wave with it. - It'll just have what looks like a piece of film behind it, - and all your assets will have different different labels ago with them. - It's a nice way to be able to quickly see what a particular file is and what it contains in - there. 5. Organizing Assets: - Okay, - so now that we have all this footage in here, - I'm gonna show you a couple different ways that you can organize this footage. - This is gonna be really important, - because once you get into a whole lot of things, - you're you just got to keep your bill to keep your mind wrapped around it. - So one way that you would probably think that you could do it is just re labeling, - uh, - your clips here. - You can totally do that. - I'm going to just quickly explain to you why I don't do that when you bring in a clip or - bring in any asset into Adobe Premiere. - This is your link to that file on your hard drive. - It doesn't actually bring the file into Adobe Premiere and copy it. - It just remembers where it is on your hard drive. - Now, - if for some reason that file gets moved around to a different location, - Adobe Premiere uses these title names to find that clip, - and it does have what they call metadata built in to help find if you change the name. - But I just find a much more convenient to keep the clip name on there. - You can change it around, - though, - if you like, - it's It's your call. - But one way that I really like organizing the footage without changing those file names is - using bins. - Bins are basically like folders on your computer, - Um, - and inside Premiere, - where you can just store your files and an easy way to bring that in is just clicking this - Dubin button right down here. - It's a folder you can when it comes up its label like that, - and we can label this one. - Let's say footage, - and then you just grab your footage and you can drop it into footage. - And now you'll notice that this, - uh, - you'll notice that this folder right here you can usually just open Close it. - And, - you know, - right now, - if you if your folder does not look like a list here, - you might be a little bit confused. - Let me quickly show you how we change that down here in the bottom left, - we can change our view. - We can go toe icon view an icon view actually shows much larger versions of the folder - gives you a key frame that you can see. - You can also do list of you a swell. - I like doing this view if I want to see all my files, - but at the same time, - like sometimes I just want to find that one clip. - And if you bring it into icon view, - it's a really easy way for you to take a look. - Your clip? - You can also, - if you run your mouse across here, - you can scrub through the footage, - which is really fast. - Way to help you find. - Oh, - yeah, - that's the clip right there. - Where do you put the seeds into the garden? - Okay, - great. - I can use that clip. - So list of you, - Um, - you can also, - when you're an icon view this slider right here increases the size of the icons here so you - can actually make them really big again. - That's really helpful when you get into when you get into looking at footage, - sometimes you want to like Syria big, - and then you can just the window size on get some full size clips here. - So that is a been I'm going to switch back to my list view now to show you ways that you go - even further into labelling are into organizing this footage within a been, - you can create a another been I showed you how to do that by clicking on the folder. - You can also right click and do new Been. - You can also do command or control be and that's going to bring up have been as well and we - can re label this. - Let's actually label this based off of the two types of footage I told you get So we told - you to get B roll. - And then we also told you to get either an interview or a narration. - However you want to call it. - All right, - I want to able to see which clips or which some research into my icon view. - Let's make that a bit smaller. - Be easier to work with. - Expand this window. - So I know that all this right here is B roll footage. - This all footage I'm gonna use to cover up, - uh, - my interviews, - all the stuff that shows people the actual product or shows them the skill that I'm - teaching them so I can put all that in the B roll folder interview. - Let's drop into the interview folder. - And if you wanted to, - you could go even further. - You can actually organize this B roll footage you could traded. - You could actually, - uh, - you could do your act one story section. - You could do your act to store your two step section, - the AC three invitation section. - That is a go as far as you want. - Go go crazy about that. - If you're an organizer, - I'm sure you're gonna love using the bins. - So let me show you one other nice way to organize footage. - Now, - if I, - um if I know like, - certain shots were really bad, - like, - I just know Oh, - plane went overhead and I got terrible audio or a dog jumped up on the camera or something - and I couldn't use the shot You can actually change labeled here, - which will help you quickly sift through your footage. - This label is by default this blue color. - But if you right click on the clip and you go down to label here, - you can change the color. - Now, - these air the default names that premier gives two different colors. - Roses are red, - so you can label that clip right to say no. - Good. - But say this. - So you come across the clip your like yes, - This one's great. - I want to remember that this one is really great, - right? - Click it, - go to your label and could choose Caribbean. - Caribbeans have green waters, - I suppose So. - There you go, - and then that's it. - That's a nice way. - I mean, - you can choose lots of different colors If you want to change the names of those colors so - you recognize them more quickly. - You can just go up to your preferences, - and inside here you can go to label colors and then label colors. - You can change all those to the colors that you recognize quickly. 6. OPTIONAL: Deleting + Offline Footage: all right. A couple miscellaneous things that I wanna show you about this project window. Now that you have assets actually in here, if you go if you need to, like, clear them out for any reason or if you need to delete them, you can do that. And it is not going to delete it off of your hard drive so I can go here to an individual clip. Boom. It's gone. Or you can actually delete a whole been if you want, I could delete everything I put into this act. One story been that takes away all the clips and any asset that is inside that folder there . So don't worry about if you actually delete something, you could always then just import it right back in. It's still there on my hard drive, uh, reason for that, like I was saying earlier. But Premier does not actually bring in the actual file. It brings in the reference to that file. Now, this is a second thing second detail that I find pretty helpful to know. Sometimes, for some reason, you feel like you've got to move a, uh, you've got to move a file, so I'm gonna show you. Um, what happens when you move a file to say under a footage here, you'll see in my premier window that I have a clip called 3576 What happens if I change the location of 3576 or even just change the name of that folder? If I move that clip when I come back into premiere here, it's going to say, Hey, there's a clip missing right here. And actually, um, it will give you an option right now to link that media. I'm gonna show you what happens at that link. Media Button does not come up and then box does not come up and then come back to it. But this clip right here, um, if sometimes when you are working with clip, you'll also see this big, obnoxious red thing coming up saying Media's off line. So if you get to this, you can right click. So it's a question mark. Now you can right click on it hit link media and that same link media box comes up and you have an option here to locate that media just located. And all you have to do is tell Premier where that file is Now I can see there that my 3576 is Just have to choose the folder and hit. Okay, Helps. I guess it's telling me I need actually click on the clips. I click it hit. Okay, Boom. It's back. Re linked right there. Sometimes you'll have a large amount of clips that go off line for some reason. Like if you read label a whole folder, Um, let me just so I made all these files off lying here. You can re link them by highlighting all of them. Right? Click Got a link, Media. It gives you the full folder here. Now, I know that some of these clips are actually in different locations. A really great thing in Premiere is actually this relinking cause I can hit, locate. And I know that some of the footage is in this footage folder. But I also know some of this footage is in my skill share folder. I can choose basically the most basic, the most lower level folder here, the most generally broad one. This folder skill share has my clips and also has my footage folder. If I choose that I hit. OK, Premier knows to search basically and all the way through that skill. Cheerful. Therefore those clips. And there you go. It's easily found all those clips I don't have to go through individually to each one. Sometimes you will have to do individual ones. They're all spread throughout your computer, But it's actually really nice search system, all right? And I believe that is it for our first lesson, that is everything in the project window. That's how you're gonna bring all your assets in and, yeah, bring them all in and organize them into bins organizing through different colors. Because in our next thing, we're gonna actually start using those clips, my great 7. Drag/Drop Edits + Creating Sequences: - All right, - now. - Welcome, - Teoh. - Lesson three. - So in this one, - we're gonna talk about getting your footage to the timeline. - And in short, - what we're going to do is show you how to take footage from your project window to your - source window and into your timeline. - And along the way, - we're going to teach you how to make something called a sequence. - All right, - so let's just start off with how to simply bring footage from your project up to your - source window. - Simple enough. - So I'm gonna open up to that b roll. - Been that I had. - Now you can grab your clip. - You can drag and drop it up there. - Or if you want to, - you can just double click on that clip, - and it brings it up there. - Now, - the way that you can do it is hit shift. - Oh, - and that will also open up the file into your source window here. - All right. - Now, - there are two methods that we're going to talk about bringing on how to bring footage from - the source window down into the timeline. - The 1st 1 I'm calling the dragon drop method. - Now you can just grab your whole clip and you can bring it down into the timeline. - Oh, - are you can take a segment of that clip to create a segment of that clip eyes. - Probably that where we start getting into the finessing of editing. - This is where you start getting kind of the technical side editing and also what I think is - the art of editing. - So noticing your window here you have this orange upside down triangle looking thing. - It is what we call the play head play had marks where in the clip you are at that moment - now you can grab it and drag it through the clip Here. - You can also watch a clip just by hitting the play button down here, - and then you can hit Stop. - Or you can also, - um, - hit your space bar on space Bar is gonna move things forward and hit space bar again. - It stops now. - There's another system for moving through this clip of the J. - K L keyboard buttons, - and this is probably one that you use. - You probably have using the most often this works in both in the source window and in the - timeline and also in the programme window as well. - J K L Buttons look like this. - If you want to move forward, - you hit the L button. - It's the same thing is him play. - If you want to stop, - you hit Kay, - and if you want to go in reverse, - you hit J and again K to stop it. - Now the great thing about the J K L buttons you can actually fast forward through this way - very quickly. - If you hit El wants, - it goes at a normal speed. - You hit it again. - It goes twice speed and you go even faster, - and there's a certain limit that it goes. - But it's a nice, - quick way to get through clips and then U K same thing happens with the J button. - You just keep going back and you can stop it where you want. - That's a quick way to get through. - I showed you then. - Also the scrubbing action here. - You can also zoom down if you want to get very specific on where you Ah, - on where you choose your selection, - you consume down using this grey bar at the bottom. - I just grabbed one section here and you zoom in and out. - You can also do that by hitting the plus and minus keys on your keyboard. - No need to hit, - Commander. - I think that just hit the plus and minus key on your keyboard and that'll zoom in and out - on that section. - All right, - so now I'm gonna show you how to choose a particular section of this clip. - We do this by setting the in point that we want and the out point of that. - Now you can set those by using the action buttons that air down here. - This is your in point marks the end. - This is your outpoint marks the out. - You'll also notice that it has the letter I next to it telling you with the keyboard - shortcut is and the o here. - So let's say that right here. - Let's find a particular point, - OK? - I want to see I want to see here when he grabs the soil and puts it into the garden. - So I'm going to start here and said, - This is my in point, - and then I can scrub two general points. - Let's see. - I want to see more specifically. - Okay, - Right there. - Uh, - just right when he finishes it, - I want to set my outpoint. - I can also, - Like I said, - I can do that by just sharing my eye and Okies. - Um, - now, - once you have those parts, - that you can actually move them around. - If I hover over here, - you'll see that I get the bracket that allows me to change my in point. - Let's say I want to go back to my original point just commands. - He takes me right back to it. - I can grab this whole section if I know that that's the actual length that I want this clip - to be. - But it's not the right section of it. - I can move this around to find that right moment in there. - Um, - again, - Command Z takes me back to it, - and I could do the same thing with the outpoint like So now sometimes you want to just - completely clear these. - Ah, - the in point and the out point. - To do that, - you can clear both of them together. - If you hit Option X on a Mac, - I think it's all ex on your PC, - and that gets rid of them completely. - I'm gonna bring him back, - though, - because I'm going to show you that you could also clear just one. - If you want to clear just the in point, - it's option I And if you want to see outpoint option. - Oh, - right there. - All right. - Great. - So that's how you're going to set your in points in your outpoints. - Now, - I want to show you just before you bring a clip into the timeline, - you have to create what we call a sequence to create a sequence. - You come back down to your project window here and you can go to the new item button. - It's next to the new been click New item, - and it gives you a lot of options to create. - But we want to create a sequence. - So we credit sequence. - Now it's going to give you a whole lot of options here on on what specifically what - specific kind of settings you want to do. - Now you can go through this and you can create something that's very specific to your - footage. - I'm going to show you a very simple way, - though, - that I find myself using pretty much all the time. - If you open up to a clip here in your project window, - you can right click on that clip and go new sequence from clip that's gonna actually give - you a sequence right here. - You'll see how it looks a little different on the left side. - Here, - um, - it the sequence is going to be specifically set for the same settings as that clip that you - just created. - I don't like keeping ah sequence all the times on deep buried in the folders. - I like having them easy to view. - So I just grabbed them, - bring them down to this blank space. - And you see, - now that I can easily find it Gonna relabeled this relabel this by just clicking on the - name, - click on a second time. - If I double click it, - it's going to open it up in the timeline here. - So if you click once pause, - click a second time and let you change the name and then you can also change. - The name would see I'm gonna call this one. - Um, - just called this lesson three right now, - or you can call this, - um we'll call it whatever you want. - Really? - All right. - So less than three, - you'll notice you now that my tab in my timeline has changed tell me what the sequence is, - and I can have multiple sequences open up, - and I can filter through them by clicking all the different tabs. - So once I've created a sequence by right clicking it, - I like to just delete that clip that's there. - And now I have a completely fresh sequence that set to the settings of the clips that I - want to use and I'm going to choose Clip. - I've already set my in pointing out point. - So in the Dragon Drop method, - I could just drag that clip and I can drop it down on the line down on the line here - quickly reset some things. - We try that again, - show you something drag and drop it, - and it brings and noticed two different parts that it brings. - It brings in my video, - which is everything above this line right here brings in my video, - and then it brings in my audio, - which is everything below that line right there. - No, - if I want to bring in just video with the Dragon drop method, - I can grab that clip right there underneath the window. - That's that just that clip icon and brings in just my video. - That's really handy when we're gonna get to R B roll section. - And maybe you don't want the audio of all of the B roll footage that you were using. - Um, - Or maybe you do want just the audio said ways to do that, - you grab just the audio and you can bring that in. - Drop that right there. - Now, - when you delete something off of the off the timeline here, - you can just select it. - Hit. - Delete. - It is not going to delete anything up here in these two windows. - It doesn't change your in point or you're out point on that. - On that clip, - I'm gonna show you one quick thing if I bring down that clip again. - And if I want to change one quick way, - I can change that in point in that out point so I can double click it when I double click - this clip now in the source window. - It is working specifically with this clip that is on the timeline. - It's not working with the clip as it appeared over here in the project file. - It's not working with your source. - Clip is working with the edit edited clip that you put on to your timeline here and so in - here, - uh, - I can zoom out here and I can change my in point again. - You'll notice how it changes down on the timeline here. - Oh, - I can change the out point. - We'll extend it out down here. - Um, - but we'll get more to specifics on how do I just want to show you that if you double click - on this clip, - that's going to open up? - Not your source, - but it's gonna open up your specific clip that's here on the timeline. - Hey, - And while we're at it, - if you do want to get into specifics of creating a sequence, - um, - you can find out exactly what your sequence or what your clip looks like if you go into If - you expand out this project window and it tells you a lot of information about your clip, - it tells you that it is a 19 by 20 by 10 80 clip. - It tells you your audio information. - It tells you your frame rate. - So if you do want to just create a new sequence, - this new sequence function here. - This is how you would get into then settings and then set your settings to match your clip - right here, - matching the frame rate of it, - matching the video the size of the clip. - And also you can adjust your audio information. - If this is the actual audio that you're using here, - eso I just want to show you. - If you did want to get tricky, - that's a way to do it. - But again, - simplest way just right. - Click the clip new sequence from Clip and they go. 8. Insert/Overwrite Editing: - All right. - So I'm gonna clear things out here. - I assure you the second way that we can bring clips from the source window down into our - sequence on the timeline. - This next way is your insert and overwrite edits. - And when you get faster using premier, - this is probably the method that you'll end up using the most. - It's really convenient. - I works really well with keyboard shortcuts. - Um, - so let me show you how this works. - Let's Ah, - let's let's bring back that clip. - Didn't mean to delete it there. - Let's bring back that clip that's on this timeline here. - I will show you what I just did with expanding the clip in it. - Another lesson. - But right now we have one clip here, - and let's say that I want to add a different segment to this timeline. - From from this clip that's open in the source window, - I can set new in points at a new point. - Let's say that I want to go now. - I want to see when the guy actually adds seed into this garden that he is creating. - Okay, - so I can set my in point using I Let's watch through it, - using Alec and quickly fast forward to when he's throwing in all those seeds there and I - can hit Oh, - to set my outpoint. - All right, - so now I have a new in pointing out point, - a new clip that I can drop in. - You notice here that the play head has a specific line. - This is showing me exactly the moment that's playing up here in the program window. - And I can choose here exactly the moment that I want that next quick clip to come in. - All right, - I'm first going to show you what it means to insert a clip. - So if you put your play head here in the center of your clip, - you just drag to get to that point. - You can then use one of these buttons here. - This is the insert button here. - You notice how it looks like a clip is actually being inserted in the middle of two squares - here. - That's because when you hit insert, - what's gonna happen is it's going to take the clip that in pointed out point you've - designated here and is going to insert it in the middle of this clip here. - It isn't going to delete any of this clip, - it is just going to insert it with the in point starting right at where the play head waas - and gonna push everything else down. - That is your insert. - Uh, - that is the insert feature here. - But if I click the other button overwrite override is actually going to As the name - suggests, - it's actually gonna overwrite the clip. - It's gonna cop. - It's gonna put this new clip up here over everything else from the play head from the play - had onwards. - Now this becomes really fast when if you have, - let's say you have, - like, - multiple clips the advantage of doing this insert overwrite thing. - If I create just multiple clips here and I strike and drop into my line Now, - if you end up with the tonic clips here, - well, - you're not gonna always want to drag these ones, - move them down, - then drag and drop this into place, - Then grab all these clips and bring it back into place. - That tape that's tedious work and it takes a lot of time a really fast way of doing this. - Every fast way of doing this is just move your play head between two edits that you want - and then just hit your insert. - But great, - your clip is there, - and everything else on the timeline gets moved. - Gets moved down. - This kid's even faster when you start using the keyboard shortcuts. - The keyboard shortcut for insert is just a comma keyboard. - Shortcut for overwrite is just the period. - I'll show you one more feature of the insert overwrite method, - and this is actually kind of a technical aspect it, - but because it's gonna become really handy as we start creating mawr video layers along the - way on the left side here, - you're going to notice that there's is V one and a one, - and if you have a clip that has multiple audio channels in it, - you'll have a one a two a three. - These are your source patches. - This is going to tell you which track the video information goes on, - which track your audio goes on. - So if I want to have it on my base layer here, - I can just hit my insert at it, - and it's gonna put everything on V one and a one. - But if I already have something on V one and let's say I want to move a clip and actually - put it above the one I just can click on to be one click and hold and move it up to my - second track here. - Another way you could do it is you can just click onto that track and it'll it'll move - those around. - This is really handy. - Uh, - when we start getting into the bureau section when you're gonna actually start layering - multiple clips on there, - it's also really handy when it comes to audio, - because you once you lay down all the narration, - you're gonna have all your narration on track one. - And if you want to do music or if you want to do extra sound effects, - you're gonna want to put those on these other audio tracks that air here. - Quick thing. - You can add in video and audio tracks by right clicking over here, - and you can add tracks by default. - It sets out to add one track. - Let's say that I don't want to add any audio tracks. - I can just click and drag that to zero, - or I can type in zero. - That way you can add as many video tracks is you want. - You can choose to place them after video track three. - That's gonna layer everything on top of it. - You can also choose more specifically, - maybe I want. - Maybe I want to insert something between tracks one and two. - Just go after video one. - I say How many tracks I want to add? - Let's add eight And there you go. - I now have eight video tracks that air layered in that the same thing goes with audio. - Just right click at attracts an audio you can Adam. - After three, - you can add as many as you want. - If you're just wind at audio the remember that you've gotta take the video tracks down to - zero, - and that's how you do that. - Now, - if you want to delete them, - you just right click again over in this space delete track, - and this gives you the chance to individually delete that track right there. - It's hard to see. - There we go. - Now you're going to see it. - You can delete that individual track. - The right click on. - You can also delete multiple tracks. - If you go to delete tracks plural and here you go. - You can delete all empty tracks. - Um, - click on delete all empty audio tracks, - click on delete all empty video tracks and hit. - Okay, - Boom. - And now you don't know that, - so 9. OPTIONAL: Editing Tricks: - All right, - So now that I've shown you how to take a clip from the project window up to the source - window and shown you the dragon drop method along with the insert and overwrite method to - bring it down to your timeline here, - I just want to show you a couple more things in the source window here that you might find - really helpful. - All right, - so and again, - these aren't things that you necessarily have to do, - and you read it. - I just find these to be really helpful things, - especially when you have ah long clips. - This first I think I'm going to show you, - is what we call markers. - Let's say that I'm actually have a long clip here. - There's a lot of action that's going on. - So I see a number of different like key moments here, - and I might want to use them individually. - Well, - rather than having to scrub through the entire clip again to find those moments I can do, - uh, - I can add what they call a marker. - Can adding marker here with this button, - and you should see here that it puts a green marker in place there, - and I could move. - Now the play head around where I want that marker will stay in place. - I can also add a marker and say, - I want to have one later. - Now when he goes for the seeds here, - I can just press am on my keyboard. - That is the shortcut for adding a marker. - Nice thing about markers is that you can double click on them and you can give them a name - and you can give details and put comments. - Say there's certain notes that you want to remember about this moment or a certain message - you want toe. - Tell yourself later. - When you get to that moment, - you can add in a whole lot of information. - There you can put a name here. - Let's just call this adding soil. - That's what happens at this moment. - So I hit. - OK, - all right, - Great. - Now when I hover over it, - you'll see that the title comes up saying, - adding soil, - and it tells me the exact time part with at the time code. - Where that happens, - it's just a nice way for me to go through. - Like if I'm back here at the beginning, - I can quickly get to that marker by holding on shift and hitting em, - and it moves my play head directly to the next marker in line. - I want to go to the next one, - shift em. - There you go. - Back at it. - Now you can delete a marker just by, - um, - right clicking on it and you can say cleared selected marker, - or you can clear all the markers that are there. - So there you go. - You clear it clears out that marker back to normal. - That's a That's a nice way to keep yourself organized. - A zehr going through all your clips, - you can just highlight this moment. - You can also do the same thing down on the timeline. - When you set a marker on the timeline, - though that marker stays in place. - Even if you're footage down here changes that marker will only stay at that. - At that point. - I don't tend to use markers down here all that often, - but, - um, - there's a lot of easy things you can do. - You can actually, - if you're turning this thing into a DVD, - you can change this into a chapter marker, - which will then, - when you export. - At the end of the day, - you can put into a DVD making program. - And that'll tell you where your chapter points are? - Uh, - it was extra information that you might not need. - All right, - so clear this marker. - It's clear. - All markers down that timeline. - I'm gonna clear this marker out. - Okay. - Ah, - a couple other things to of the things like to point out to you about this window. - Here. - You have the time codes. - Here. - Your time code on the left shows you where your play head hit is throughout the video. - And then your time code here on the right toes you the length that you're in and out points - are handy. - Thing about that is when you get Teoh editing down here in your timeline, - let's say you want a clip that is a specific length down in this. - This part down. - Your timeline here you can create something to that more closely to that length or even - specifically to that length. - By watching that time marker right there. - It's just a just a handy thing to know. - Sometimes it's advantage. - Just know where, - uh, - what the certain length of things are. - Ah, - One more thing. - Show you Here is this drop down menu. - This is your playback resolution, - so sometimes you have. - If your computer's running very slowly, - could possibly be because your footage is really high resolution. - Your computer is not processing it very well. - You can change your resolution down to 1/4 resolution here, - and then when you play back, - you can see that it's a bit more grainy. - I don't know if that showing up on this video or not, - but what I'm seeing is something that's more grainy, - less resolution. - You can kick it all the way up to full resolution if you want to see something at its - highest resolution playback. - I find that to kind of slow things down a bit, - so I keep things at half resolution as well. - Uh, - that's also over in the program window. - The same thing when you're playing back video. - If things were running slowly, - maybe think about dropping this down for some clips, - even drops down to 1/16 resolution. - That tends to be an option when you're using really high resolution footage, - maybe shot on like a red camera or things like that. - So, - yeah, - there you go. - There's a couple of quick, - handy things to teach you about about the source window 10. Timeline Tools for Drag/Drop Editing: - Okay, - so this is a lesson for up till this one. - We have shown you how to open premier, - create a new project, - how to bring all your assets into the project window here. - How? - Teoh open those into the source window. - And then we showed you two ways of bringing that footage from the source window down into - your sequence. - That's on the timeline here. - Both the Dragon drop method and the insert and overwrite methods. - So in this lesson, - you're going to create your narration or your interview track. - This is going to be the spoken track that is gonna be underlying your whole how to video. - And for this lesson, - we're gonna have you do that using entirely the Dragon drop method with the mouse. - This is a really there's a really handy way. - This is probably the easiest former editing to step into from the beginning. - So we're going to start off with using that one to create this entire timeline on your - first video track here and using your first audio tracks. - So okay, - we showed you how to open up a clip into the source window and you can start off wherever - you where you need to start with. - What if your first clip is? - We're starting off with that story section. - So I recommend you just start off putting that one together. - Choose your first clip and you can drag and drop it into place. - And as you can see here, - I've actually created a couple clips to make a whole spoken sequence here. - And so you can choose your 1st 1st bit of audio that you want to do. - Then you can choose your second bit that you want to do, - and then you can just keep dragging, - dropping them into places, - putting a man side by side. - Um, - until you have until you end up with something that looks kind of like this. - Now you can create your entire video this way. - Just setting. - You're in points up here in the setting you're in points up here in the source window on. - Then just dragging and dropping said you're in point out point drag to the next one dragon - eggs that can create your entire video, - and that's just fine. - There are a lot of ways there are a lot of tools actually, - that you can use, - though, - to finesse the video to make it to make it work nicer. - And I'm gonna show you these tools throughout this lesson. - So I recommend the U push yourself to use some of these different points. - There's there's a lot of different ways to edit. - Keep playing around at the different methods. - Do you find the ones that work best for you? - I will tell you. - The one is that I use the most and also show you something I don't use very often. - So all right, - let's get started. - So the first tool that we have here is thesis election tool. - That's this arrow tool. - The shortcut for that is the on your keyboard. - This is basically your common arrow tool that you're going to use for selecting individual - clips. - You can drag box around multiple clips and then you can also collect. - You can actually get just a part of a clip notice. - When I click on the video track here, - this video track is linked with all the audio tracks and basically everything that comes - with it, - so I can select just the specific video track. - If I hold down the option or all key and then click on that click on that clip right there - , - and that gives me just that lets me select just the video. - This is handy sometimes because sometimes you want it. - You want to actually move just a certain piece around where you just want to move a certain - piece of audio around, - Um, - and you don't want to on. - You don't want to affect anything, - affect any of the other pieces. - So then you just Ault click. - Get that audio and move it. - Now if you hold down the option or Old Key and you move something that copies it so that - copies that piece right there. - If I click on ah, - whole clip here and hold on the option, - drag and drop, - There you go. - I've duplicated that clip right there, - and I can I can move just that track up, - Teoh. - Another track. - Here you can. - There's a whole lot of options for that, - but that's how you duplicated Clip, - using that now, - using the selection tool, - you can also change your in and out point down here. - On the timeline. - You'll notice that there's a red arrow that's pointing to my left. - There's one point to the right that's tell me which clip I'm going to effect when I grab - onto and at a point. - So here I am, - affecting this clip to the left. - I click once and it shows me brackets around that side. - I can drag that and that changes the out point of that cliff, - leaving with a space right here and now. - This clip only plays up to that point right there. - Once I had once that gaps there, - I can click on that gap and then I can hit, - delete and their closes in that space. - So that's one way that you could do. - Your editing is just by moving points, - closing in gaps using the selection tool. - You can also open up clips from the timeline back up here to the source window. - Um, - using this selection tool as well. - Um, - way explain the center earlier lesson, - but that is the clip that is here from this timeline. - That is not the source clip there. - It's okay, - Great. - That's the selection tool. - There's actually a multi track selection tools your track select. - If you hit a, - it's going to bring up that tool now in Premier Pro Sisi, - The default for the selection actually brings up two arrows in anything earlier. - In six point over earlier, - you're gonna have a single arrow that your first thing that comes up Ah, - In both programs, - you switch between those arrows by holding down shift, - press shift or let go shift and it gets these arrows here. - So with multiple arrows that is going to select everything that is going to select all - tracks going to select all your video tracks, - Let me duplicate a couple, - duplicate a couple clips here to demonstrate this for you. - Now if I go back, - Teoh my track select. - If I click here, - it's going to select everything from this point where the arrow is forward and it's going - to select everything on all tracks right there. - Now, - if I want to select just an individual track I can use, - I can hold down, - shift and get this single arrow and I can select their It only does things that are on - video Track one. - Now The reason it's highlighted these clips down here for the audio is because those air - link those air audio clips that are linked with my that are linked with these video tracks - . - I can turn off that feature of selecting the link things by going up here, - see how this brings With links selection, - I can turn off linked selection, - and now you have control of just selecting individual things. - So in my tracks election, - I can choose just the video or just the audio, - or just that. - Or I can choose just things from this moment forward on there as well. - I like keeping the links selection on for a default. - Um, - so there you go. - That is how you that is, - how you move items around. - You show you one other elements. - Now, - when you move a clip around, - you'll notice that sometimes I get locks into place, - you'll move it, - move it to the left here, - and it just kind of snaps into place right next to that. - And it's not stops right at the red line with play Head is. - Sometimes you don't want that to happen. - Sometimes you want to actually have. - You don't want to just snap the place there. - You want it to not do that. - Notice this magnet up here. - Click that snap that turns it off. - And now I have into very smooth control of going one frame to frame. - I can I can control my in point by individual frames rather than having it actually snapped - to a particular point. - Eso closely. - So sometimes you'll find that really handy. - It's just a good thing to know about. - The shortcut for that is s in there. - So all right, - continuing on using all of our tools here, - I'm gonna talk to you about different editing tools that are here in premiere. - And actually, - you'll see them in all editing programs as well. - All right, - So when we were using the selection tool when we moved items when we moved the out point of - a particular clip or remove the in point, - it left a large gap here. - Their ways to edit so that that gap doesn't isn't left there. - That's what these next two tools are about. - This ripple edit tool here allows you to work with just one single clip. - It allows you to work with either clip a here or toe work with clip Be which is this on - this side? - Here. - Now you can bring in the tail side of clip A. - You can change that in point or that outpoint. - Sorry, - Maybe you want to bring it back to this point here in the middle of clip you can see in the - program window on the top, - right? - It's showing me what that new outpoint is. - And when I let go, - watch what happens. - It brings everything that was passed. - My was from Clip a onward. - It brings it back. - It doesn't leave the gap there. - So my a new outpoint is actually where I let go and everything else is brought back into - place. - The same thing happens. - If I change my in point here, - it's gonna bring everything back with it, - and it's going to put it. - It's gonna basically close the gap itself. - It just changes where my outpoint or where my in point is on that particular clip. - All right, - let's get rid of these things right here. - So that's if you want toe affect one individual cliff, - you would use the ripple tool. - Um, - the shortcut for that is be if you want to affect both clips, - though, - there's this thing called the rolling at it tool. - The shortcut for that is n rolling at a tool knows when I click on an edit. - It highlights both sides there. - The ruling Edit Tool is going to shorten clip A. - If I move this way and it's going to lengthen, - clip be if I move this way, - nothing changes about the beginning points in the end point of these clip, - it just moves that edit point. - Sometimes that's, - ah, - really nice thing to have their to build, - to move both those things together. - I'll be honest, - though I don't use this type edit quite as much as I use something like the ripple at it, - Um, - which is It's nice to just be able to affect the individual clip, - but sometimes you know you need effect, - both of them. - So that's where you get the rolling at it. - Tool. - Both of these tools air really handy when you have a whole lot of footage in place because - it becomes really tedious to do something like this over and over again and have to - constantly select to move it down. - So, - all right, - one of my favorite tools in premier I don't get to use as much as I'd like to, - but we do get to use it. - Sometimes it be role is the rate stretch tool. - Great stretch tooled as exactly what you think it do. - It does. - It changes the rate or the speed at which your clip is going to play. - So you'll hear his voice here. - I turn my volume here so you can hear it. - Um, - you hear his voice here. - So many of us live in a way so many of us live in cities way live. - You hear how it's playing at a normal speed. - So now, - if I do the rate stretch tool, - my in point and my out point of the clips stays the same, - but the speed of that clip changes. - So I'm gonna grab the beginning of that clip. - Sorry. - Here. - Let's try this again. - All right. - Great stretch, - tool. - I'm gonna grab the beginning of that clip notice here. - That tells me how long my clip is. - Now it tells me that I'm setting a new duration of this clip. - All right, - Now, - listen to way. - Sounds like he's at half speed here. - All right, - so that's not gonna be his handy when you're using. - When you're doing that for your narration here. - But that's gonna become really handy when you're using your B roll. - Sometimes your extra footage. - You know you'll find I want this segment, - but it's just too short. - It's Ah, - it's like a one second thing. - If I could just extend it to two seconds, - you can use that rate stretch tool toe extended to the exact speed that you wanted to go to - one other way. - You can do this without using the rate stretch tools, - right? - Click on your clip and go to speed duration. - And now you can say exactly what percentage speed you want to set that to. - You can also change the time of Of how long you want that, - Teoh of how long you want that clip to play for? - If it's two seconds, - you like all I need to be twice as long. - Well, - you can change your two seconds to four seconds here. - No note here that when we're talking about time on an editing program, - this is not 11 seconds. - This is 11 frames. - This is where your seconds are. - This is where your minutes are. - This is where your hours are. - Now you're depending on the type of camera you shot with or what modes you shot, - and you'll have either 24 frames per second or you'll have 30 frames per second. - But anyways, - if you're changing the time, - just know that this first number here refers to how many what frame you're in. - This refers to seconds here. - So anyway, - I want to get out of here. - So many of us live, - all right. - And we're back to normal. - Now I'm gonna show you another another tool here, - this one, - You will use a lot in one on one variation or another. - This one is the razor tool. - You can get to it with C or you just click here. - This tool does exactly what you think it does. - It cuts exactly the razors. - If you hold down shift, - it's gonna cut everything all the way from top to bottom of whatever video tracks you have - . - If you let go a shift, - it will cut just the individual track. - The individual clip that you are working with knows how it puts in a line here, - and I can grab that whole section and move it. - I won't do that Now. - That's that's also a quick way that you can add it if you know Well, - I wanted to start right here. - You can get your razor tool cut right at the line there. - Bring back your selection tool. - Select that bit. - Delete it. - Closure gap right there. - That's it. - That's one quick way that you can edit. - Now, - a short cut for this is actually doing command or control K. - And that's going to cut right here where your timeline waas and again, - Just elite. - And you can close your track in right there. - So it's another quick way that you can edit that I should show you right now. - These these markers right here. - Now, - we showed you that the ones on the very left here are for your source that determines where - something comes from. - Your source monitored down onto the timeline. - But these right here are your track targets. - This determines basically what track is targeted for particular actions right here. - So let me set up a couple clips here to show you what I'm what I'm talking about. - If I'm if I want to. - If I want Teoh cut, - maybe I want to cut out like a whole segment right here. - I want to cut everything from right here and back. - Well, - if I hit command k notice how it on Lee cuts the tracks that have been targeted over here - on the left. - If I want to get Track two here, - I have to make sure that that is also on hit command. - K They go it also it's now it's now created. - It's created to cut all the way down from everything that is targeted over here. - Another way that you can do that is you hold down shift and hit command K, - and that's going to do everything all your tracks, - regardless of whether it is targeted or not. - Same thing goes, - if you're doing the razor tool. - If you hold down, - shift now and you cut, - it's gonna cut everything all the way from top to bottom at that moment. - So track targeting also becomes really handy if you're back on your selection tool. - If you do your up and down keys, - this is going to move you from edit point to edit point. - But you notice here that I'm skipping past some of the edit points that are on my clips - that are on tracks two and three. - That's because those tracks are not targeted. - If I talk toggle on the track targeting for those clips. - Now, - when I hit up and down, - I'm going to go to each edit point that is on those individual tracks. - So that's really handy when you're quickly jumping through your video and you're wanting to - affect certain certain points here one to watch certain clips, - make sure that you have these toggle tracks on again, - like with the razor tour, - like with Thea Shortcut Command K. - If you hold down shift, - you will move between those edit points whether or not the track has toggled on or not. - All right, - two more handy tools to show you. - Here. - We've got the slip tool and in the slip tool. - So sure you've been more This is about and where you would possibly use this. - I'm gonna actually pull up one of my B roll clips. - Doesn't matter which one have got here. - Let's put this one. - Let's say that I've set my endpoint of my outpoint on this clip, - and I just want to work with the video here so I can bring down just the drag video only. - Let's say I'm showing in that here. - Once we commute those, - let's say that I'm showing okay, - he's pulling out that board. - Well, - you know what? - I like the length of this clip, - but I don't like that particular moment in the clip. - So here's where the slip tool becomes really handy. - Click on the slip tool or press why, - as your keyboard shortcut, - grab your clip and start moving it and you'll notice in the program window that you now see - what you're new in. - Point is in your new out point of that clip on the left is the in point. - On the out is out on the right is the out point I want to go for when there's a different - board. - So I'm gonna move all the way down till up there. - He's grabbing different board right now. - I can let go now and now My clip shows me a completely different segment when he's actually - grabbing that board instead of the other one. - So the slip tool is very handy, - particularly when we're gonna start working with R B roll shots. - It's can be handy also with these audio moments as well. - The next tool is the slide tool slide tools really great again for moving things without - having to create gaps. - I'll be honest. - I don't use this one whole lot. - But it's a good one to know about in case you ever run situation when you think you should - side to, - it works like this. - If I am clicked, - here are five selected here This clip that's between other moments. - Well, - I like the length of that clip, - but I kind of wanted to happen in different moments here. - When I move this around, - notice how the how the length the clips that air surrounding at the length of them changes - . - So the clip before it shortens the clip after it lengthens when I let go. - That clip that I was using is still the same length, - but the clips around it are different. - This can also You can also choose multiple clips by holding down holding down shift, - and that allows you to select individual clips that you can then move around. - The clips that are selected and everything between them does not change just the clips that - are not selected change. - So if I want to change, - maybe just these two middle ones well done shift. - There you go. - It's moving justice one. - So that is the slide tool there, - The pen tool. - We're going to use a whole lot in a later lesson, - but there it is right there. - We will get back to that one. - Are these next tools I don't use very often, - but you definitely show you. - Um, - let's say that your zoomed in really far and you want to move left and right on your track - . - The hand tool. - It's really handy for letting you slide between basically, - let you slide down that track. - You can also do this. - If you're using the selection tool, - you can smooth with this grey bar that's down at the bottom here, - and that allows you to do just the same thing. - I actually rather than doing that, - I tend to just zoom out. - Find the moment that I want to go to zoom back in and then find the zoom tool, - which is pretty self explanatory. - You can zoom in, - and if you hold down option or Ault, - that lets you zoom back out. - You can also do this by using the plus and minus keys on your keyboard, - though that will let use him and and zoom back out. - Let's say you're really far zoomed in and you don't want to press all those minuses to get - all way back out. - You can use the back slash tool, - the backward slash here and that will that will never That will bring everything that you - have done in your video back to fit into this space. - Let me show you on something that has ah longer segment here lets him really zoomed in. - Well, - it's gonna take me a number of keys to get back out here instead. - If I just hit the backward slash, - see how it just it now creates it puts it, - fits it perfectly to the window. - Great. - So that is all. - That's all your tools here. - Um, - start playing around with the start, - trying out the different things that are there. - And let's piece together your narration or your interview track. - Start off with that act one telling the story of why people should be listening to this - move into your act to which are the steps of why people steps of how people could do this - and then finish up with your Act three, - which is ways that people can further engage with either the skill you're teaching him or - the product. - He's like that. - So 11. Insert/Overwrite Editing Your B-Roll: - okay. - In this next section, - we're going to start putting together all the B roll in the previous section. - You would have used a lot of the dragon drop editing methods and used some of these tools - to put together your narration. - Video. - Now this whole thing should be should look just like this. - It's just all your video somebody talking to the camera. - So in this next section, - we are going to cover up a lot of this footage. - You can also keep some of this footage around. - It's ah, - it's your choice on on whether you want to see the person's face or not. - But to do that, - we are going to use our second video track here. - So let's let's get things set up so we can do all of our editing here on the second video - track. - First things first. - Move your move, - Your source Patch here up. - Teoh attract too. - Let's move the audio ones on down and then let's just turn off those tracks and then you - can lock them so that no, - nothing you do is going to affect those clips at all. - You can move everything around. - You can cut. - You can paste, - Do anything want. - Nothing is going to affect those this section. - Those clips are locked in place there. - And one more thing you want to decide in this section when you're putting together when - putting together B roll is decide whether you want to use the audio from your B roll or not - . - As you saw with this video, - I decided to keep the audio in there because it worked really well with with what he's - doing, - it's creates a kind of a tactile experience when somebody hears the sound of the wood - hitting throughout the video. - But you also don't need to use it. - I'm gonna show you what, - how to do it without having the audio in there, - and you can just quickly toggle off the patch. - The source patches here, - and this means now. - Anything that I add down, - it's not going to bring in the audio into this clip is just going to bring in the video to - this section. - All right, - let's get started on adding in a 19 footage. - So in your last section had you used the Dragon drop method, - you can do the dragon drop method for all your B roll all you want, - and that's totally fine on. - And, - um, - I just think for this time let's try something different. - Let's try doing this entire segment with the insert and the overwrite tools, - and I'm also gonna teach a couple other tricks that'll work well with this. - I use both methods, - the uncertain over in the dragon drop at different times, - and you'll probably the same thing. - You'll find some moments. - It's handy to use the drag and drop. - Sometimes it's hand use the other. - So okay, - I know for my story segments of this video quickly just mute this. - I'm not. - You're not having to listen to him the whole time. - I know for my story. - Second, - this video. - Well, - I want to see my character here actually grabbing pieces. - What? - I want to see where he gets these pieces from. - So I'm gonna grab. - It's true that all your there, - I'm going to grab a clip and now I can move. - I can put that clip here on this second track by just hitting insert, - or I could do it by hitting over right? - It's my first clip, - so it doesn't really matter quite a this point, - especially because I've locked these bottom these bottom tracks here. - So nothing's affecting those. - Alright, - for sake of speed this video I'm going to for this lesson. - I'm going to just quickly select a couple other moments here and show you what we could do - with those Aiken dropping another one. - But let's say Oh, - wait, - no. - I want to actually switch up angles here and show something different in that sector. - I want to show maybe from this angle now, - and I want to go between those clips. - Well, - okay, - let's choose that moment right there. - Okay, - Grabs it comes off the wood right there. - Okay. - I want to put that between these two clips so I can do insert and great. - It's moved. - Everything that comes after the play head on down and it's dropped in my clip right there. - Or let's say you know what? - I don't actually want to use this. - Clip it all. - All right, - let's do over right. - So I can overwrite. - And Hebei clip. - My first clip up here in the source window was longer than that clip. - So therefore, - just over writ that roped over that entire clip right there. - So insert and overwrite, - or how you're going to add clips to the timeline to the time when you set your in point in - your out point in the source window and then use these two buttons and that drops on the - timeline. - There are equivalent buttons that will subtract footage from the timeline. - If insert and overwrite, - add footage to the timeline than over here in your program window. - You will see lift an extract and those air going to take footage off of your timeline now, - like we said in points and outpoints on, - um, - in the source window, - you have to do that same thing in your timeline here to use the lift and extract edits. - So if I would say that I try adding in another clip here for sake of video, - I don't know why I would use that. - But let's just say for the sake of this video that I do want to use that. - Okay, - let's say that, - you know, - I actually don't want to do this angle here. - It all okay, - so I can go to the beginning of this clip here If I hold down shift while moving my play - head around it actually moves, - locks right into that edit moment. - I can hit my in point. - I can then go to the next clip here. - Come back one frame by hitting the left arrow and I can't make out point. - So now that clip is selected with an in point out point. - Now, - if I hit lift, - it's going to lift that clip just right out. - It's gonna leave the gap right in that space. - There just takes out what's between the end point in the out point. - If I hit extract here, - it brings everything that was to the right of that play. - Head everything to the right at the out point, - and it brings it back here. - So that's a nice way if you want to close that gap. - I mean, - if I didn't have, - that is an option. - If I didn't have the extract as an option, - I'd have to lift. - And then I have to select everything and move it back, - and that could be a real pain. - There's advantages, - Teoh. - When you would use both more often not, - you might use this extract bottom here, - but sometimes you might actually, - when you start editing, - you might end up having a lot of footage. - That's already that's or you have already locked and set in place down here. - Well, - you don't want any of that to move, - but you want to get rid of this clip here. - Well, - just use your lift. - It will lift out that clip there without affecting your clips that you have later down the - line. - Like most things and editing, - there's also a shortcut. - If you want to highlight a clip, - let's say OK again. - I want to take this clip out. - I can move the play had to go right over that clip. - And if I hit the X on the keyboard, - notice how it sets an in point in an outpoint around that clip that I that I am hovering - over here, - that's I can now use my lift or my extract and move that and get that clip right out of - there. - That's an easy way if there's one particular clip that you want to get out. - But let's say that you want to actually get multiple clips out of there so I can highlight - . - Let's I want to get both those clips out of there. - Well, - if I hit X it's only going to choose one of those clips, - not both of them away. - That you can get premier to set an in point and outpoint around multiple clips is, - rather than using X, - highlight the clips that you want and then hit your forward slash key. - And that's going to set in point and outpoint around your selection there. - Lifted on out Boom, - it's gone. - So those air shortcuts for how to use the overwrite our how do you? - Sorry to lift and extract one more note about using the lift and the extract, - and this is actually really handy. - Sometimes you want to move footage to a different place like you don't like the fact that - these two shots are right here so early on in the video. - Maybe you want to save them for later. - Well, - here's a really easy way to do it one way. - I mean, - obviously you can grab and just move things down, - but sometimes, - for whatever reason, - things get tricky and you don't want it. - You don't want to use the grab and selected move things down because that means you have to - arrange a lot of other clips. - Let me show you a really easy way. - Once you Once you have your in pointing out points set on the section that you want to move - , - you can lift it out or you can extract it out whichever one. - And when you do that, - it actually doesn't delete the clip it all or delete that selection at all. - It just moves it to your clipboard, - which means that you can then hit command or control V, - and it's going to paste that those clips where you want him to go. - This becomes really handy. - Let's say I'm gonna duplicate a lot of these clips and show you we're really handy way of - doing this. - So let's say that I actually want to move this clip right here, - and I wanted to go in right between those clips right there. - Well, - if I just using the selection tool, - I have to move everything down. - And yep, - that becomes kind of a hassle, - especially when you start getting into having multiple layers. - Let's move things back. - I'll show you a short cut on how to do that. - You can use hover, - hover your play head over that selection hit X that selects it. - I'm going to lift it right out of there. - It's on my clipboard so I could move my play head right to the moment where I want to paste - it, - hit command or control, - hold down shift as well, - and then hit V and notice how everything else moves down. - And that clip is now moved in there. - It's the same thing is if you did an insert at it, - this is an insert paste, - uh, - at it. - I guess we can call it now with insert overwrite. - I've been showing you that it works really well with whole clips, - but you can also take out just sections of clips as well. - I would say you want to shortened this clip, - and I wanted to start just right there. - He's sawing. - Well, - I can set my outpoint at that point that I want to get rid of. - I can come back here. - This is the in point that I want to get rid of, - and then I can lift that right out, - and that lifts out just a section of the clip. - It doesn't have to be the whole clip, - and actually, - I'll quickly show you a shortcut that I use all the time. - So I know that's the moment right there that I want because I have my track toggled on here - . - When I hit Commander Control K, - it's gonna cut that and then I can check the up arrow to go to the beginning of that clip - hit X to highlight it, - and then I can extract or I can lift it out and you can actually get for me that I just - find that to be just a really fast system, - I determined. - Hope that's the money. - Want command K go up, - boom, - Get it right out of there. - So that's the shortcut that I use. 12. Audio + Keyframes: - All right, - so now you have your narration track laid down, - and you also have your visual track laid down, - and you've got everything in place for those. - So now that you're visual side of your story is done, - we're gonna adjust the audio. - Sometimes you run into situations where maybe a person was talking to quietly and you want - to increase that, - or sometimes you have a particular noise in the background that you want to take out. - Or sometimes you will have music that you want to adjust the different volumes off. - So gonna show you how to do that in this particular lesson here. - So first things first. - What we want to do is actually expand our audio track so that we can see it. - I want to give us more space to work with the audio so I can grab this center bar that's - here between my video and my audio tracks. - Move that up. - It gives me a lot more space for my audio here, - and then I can grab this section right here. - And this lets me increase the individual track right there. - I can also now that's open. - I can also increase it this way that minimizes it gently. - The it's the one that's right below it that adjusts that particular track right there. - So if I want to adjust track to move that up, - I grab the bar. - That's below it like that Now that's how it works in CS six and everything earlier. - New Teoh Premier Sisi is the ability to just do command plus, - and that increases your video track size and option. - Plus on that increases increases the audio size here. - Now when you do the option or all. - Plus, - that's going to increase all of the tracks and then if you do minus that decreases the size - of it. - If you want to do an individual track, - though, - you can one do it. - You can do it by grabbing this, - uh, - this bar grabbing this bar that's on the bottom here and bring it down or another way that - you can do it is using the scroll. - The middle scroll wheel on your mouse hovers over the section. - Scroll up increases the size with scroll down, - decreases it, - and when you increase the size of this, - you can go on for a huge distance. - Here you can see all the different wave files, - the of the audio that you've been using. - So let's say that we get into a clip and I play it and I'm like, - OK, - well, - that's really quiet in comparison, - and you can see the way files are a bit quieter than some of the other ones. - If I want to increase the volume of that whole clip, - I can use my selection tool and this center bar. - Here is our volume level. - I grab that I can increase, - you see the decibels or going up, - and then I could decrease it and the decibels air going down. - And now, - if you wanted to be completely silent, - you have take it all way to the bottom, - and that is negative. - Infinity right there. - So if I wanted to increase that a little bit, - maybe I want to bring that up to one or so country there. - So they go. - Now it's sounding it, - making everything a bit more consistent in the voice here so it doesn't suddenly drop down - really low. - But sometimes you run into a situation like this right here, - where your your audio suddenly drops down a whole lot. - But it's not, - It's not very quite in the beginning. - It's just that this end here, - Well, - you don't want to split that cliff, - or at least you don't have to, - because you can set what they call a key frame, - and you've come over here to the pen tool. - The shortcut for is P. - You can create a key frame. - I'm going to delete these ones just to show you what we're doing here. - So this is what it looks like. - Normally I can add a key frame. - I should add it. - You should add a key frame at the point where you first want to start seeing the change - happen. - When you said that in, - That's gonna set a frame, - a sweep, - everything before this point or everything. - After this point based off, - wherever I set my next key frame, - everything. - It is going to stay the same volume. - It's only when I then said a key frame here and I raise it up that that's going to increase - the volume on this side right here. - And you can see this is the volume level increase increasing till hits this point. - If I wanted to, - I could set it again toe. - Bring this point back down. - If maybe just that section was quiet. - But that's not the case with this clip. - With this clip right here, - you can just see it gets really quiet just right around this section. - So play this back. - Now they've set that and you can hear now that it's a bit more consistent in their now, - Sometimes you might have a sound that you don't want to have in there. - Maybe, - uh, - maybe you had somebody dropped something on set and you wanna be able to take that bit out - . - So let me show you here, - on an audio track where there's a sound we might want to get rid of. - I mean, - the other tracks. - So you hear just this. - Let's find Let's find the right moment here. - So for this video, - I actually like having the sounds there. - But maybe maybe that's the sound of somebody dropping something in the middle of somebody - talking. - And you don't want to actually have that in there. - Well, - a nice way that you can quickly just get rid of that sound. - Said a key frame before it said a key frame after it. - And then come back and set two more key frames just on the inside. - Now you can lower those key frames down. - Teoh infinity! - Andi, - that sound is gone. - And I would be really handy if you had just Somebody dropped something in between. - Like a sentence. - Sometimes doing that as a way to just kind of clean up your audio. - And, - um all right, - so another way that we can set key frames in a particular clip. - I was actually up in the source window, - and sometimes this is handy. - You can go back to your selection tool and click on particular clip. - That clip is now what? - We're working within the effect controls up here, - increase my volume. - And that central dot right there is add or remove a key frame. - So I want to add a key frame right at this moment here. - I wanted to hold it zero and then move down further and I can add another key frame and I - can increase the volume at that particular key frame moment. - And there you go. - When I expand that out, - you can actually see, - uh, - you can actually see this line right here That showing the increase in Aiken, - grab that. - I can lower it down here or I can increase it. - So there you go another way. - Another thing that you can do. - Um, - and maybe you won't need to do this to say for this video, - but if you want to have some fun, - you can actually pan from the left side to the right side by default, - your pan comes in here said it. - Zero. - But you can move that over to your left, - and that's gonna put it more in your left speaker. - Or you can move it over to the right, - which is gonna move it mawr in your right speaker. - And just like with the just like with the volume and your levels, - you can actually add a key frame and you can have something switch the panning left to - right over over a series of time here. - If you do have a number of key frames that are set and say you just want to get rid of them - well, - one way you can do that is by just clicking on it. - Ah, - and you can just hit delete. - Once it's highlight. - You see that it's yellow there. - If you want to get rid of a key frame. - All you have to do is you can select it with the pen and then just hit, - delete, - or you can also select with your selection. - Tool lets you do that as well. - Once the key frame is made in there, - you can also adjust it with the pen or with the, - um or with the selection tool. - So there you go. - That's how you can adjust volumes. - This becomes really handy also, - when you're bringing in, - uh, - music as well. - So, - like, - I can show you here. - I'm gonna switch over to a sequence where I already have the music in place. - I can show you how I've how have done that too. - So in short, - I opened up my music up in top into my source window here. - I set the points that I want to use that brought him down to the main, - brought him down to my fifth track here. - And I wanted my intro music to be louder. - But then the minute the person starts talking, - I actually want Teoh. - Decrease the volume. - Let me show you. - That's when we don't what I've done here. - But tell me talks I wanted Teoh. - I want the volume to drop down. - So I said a key frame that basically was that pin that told me what volume I want all this - volume, - all this first music to be at. - And then I said, - a hand right here, - um, - set up in right here Teoh with the pen tool and said a key frame. - I'm sorry right here to bring that volume down, - and then you can do that throughout your selling. - Create multiple moments of that. - There's actually some points where you might want the music to come back up. - So let me find a moment. - Where is a particular bond? - So the ending actually is a great moment where you want to increase the volume again. - So we have a volume really low right here, - guarding your own regardless of your time. - But then I want to bring it back up because I wanted to come in for a solid ending. - So I just did that by saying those key frames and then sometimes you just need to fully - fade out your music, - and you can do that just by setting key frame and then another one and bring that bring - this last one down to zero, - and that is going to just fade out your music at the very end here. - And that's slowly fades on my music right there. - Now when you're mixing music, - you might be wondering, - Like, - what level should I hit for his music? - What is what are music or for the for the words for the dialogue? - Uh, - what's a good volume level I'm going for? - You'll notice on the right side here, - that is, - I play there is there are levels that air that air hitting up to the negative 12. - Here, - um, - I try to keep my audio and try to keep even, - like with the music, - everything staying around negative 12 So we can go over a little bit. - It could come back down, - but that it's averaging around negative 12. - Depending on your venue, - though, - that you're playing out to, - um, - if you're playing online, - you can have it come all the way up here to zero. - What you want to avoid when it comes to sound. - Mixing, - though, - is you wanted to avoid going in going red in these bars up here. - I'll show you what that looks like if I increase this volume here really loudly, - probably it's too loud that's hitting this space right here. - And that means that I have clipped the volume. - You want to avoid doing that. - So whatever it takes to adjust your volume levels, - um, - in order to avoid going into that red space you could bring it up is close to zero. - But the minute you go up there, - that's when your sound starts distorting. - And then I can also not be great on your speakers as well. - So adjust your volume levels, - keep it somewhere somewhere around zero or negative 12 or just whatever is comfortable for - your ears. - Whatever you think is gonna be loud enough. - Make sure, - though, - that you have your voice of your narration track still very clear for people to hear. - Sometimes when we put music in, - it can really drown that voice out. - Don't put your music so loud that you miss out on the voice. - You want your audience for having to strained to listen to it. - You want to build a comfortably here that hear the voices 13. OPTIONAL: Editing Tricks: - all right. - Sometimes you will extract a clip from a section and you're left with the hopes not extract - . - Sorry. - You will lift a clip out and you're left with a large gap here. - And you need something to fill that space. - And you want a single clip and you have a very set in point of a very set out point. - You want something to fit just in that gap, - Will you can do something that's called a three point at it. - Three point at it means that you set and in point just 0.1. - You set an out point that your second point and you can come up here to your source window - and you could determine what sexually want by setting 1/3 point, - Let's say I wanted to start. - All right, - where's a good point here? - None of those good points. - Let's go. - Where? - Earlier. - Alright, - Right here. - Come on. - There's a good point. - Mm. - There we go. - Right here. - What is picking up a port? - I can set an in point. - I know. - I wanted to start right there and watch when I say when I say insert or when I say over - right here that drops this clip using this in point down into this section here. - It doesn't change anything else. - It on Lee puts this clip in the section that I designated with an in point and an out point - . - You can also do the same thing. - Let's say I know I want this clipped and right there, - right when he finishes brushing off that piece of wood, - I can set just the out point and then again hit the period key to do an overwrite. - And it is going to set using that out point that I determined and then use thes two other - points here that becomes really handy once you have a lot of things set into place and - again, - you're trying not to move everything around. - You just want to change one section of your video. - Now you can create your entire video by creating in points and outpoints just in the source - window and bringing that all down. - You can also do it just by moving things around based off the ripple edit tool, - the ruling edit tool. - But sometimes you want to get in there and really finesse something. - Maybe you just want to take off shave off five frames of a clip because something about is - just feeling just a little extra, - just an extra long editing, - really. - The art of editing really comes down to sometimes this finessing often edit. - So a great way to do that is to open up the trim mode. - And we do that by moving the play head to the edit that we want to change and hitting t on - the keyboard. - Notice the program window has now changed where it shows me clip a the tail, - the last shot of clip a on the left side and the first shot of clip be on the right side. - You'll also notice that there is a blue line covering but both clips on the top and on the - bottom. - That's because when you hit T, - you are defaulted. - Set into the rolling edit mode. - Rolling Edit mode, - Remember, - is where it affects both the out point of Clip A and the in point of clip be. - So if you change that edit point, - it's going to change. - That points on both those clips. - You can change that to change only one clip by moving your mouse just slightly to the left - here and you'll see how, - any time I'm over here, - notice how it gives me the ripple Edit tool, - and I can click just that side and the blue markers showing me that I'm just affecting clip - A could also do the same with clip be I'm gonna come back here and in the middle Here I can - click and I'm back to rolling Edit mode. - Now you can use plus one. - You can add one frame or you can add five frames. - You can also take away frames and take away five frames here. - The best way to think about this is which way do you want the edit to move? - Which way do you want that point to move? - Do you wanted to move to your right, - which is going to shave off frames on this side, - but it's going to add frames on the left side. - Already wanted to move to the left, - which is going to take off frames on your left side and add frames onto your right side. - So let's say we want to actually move these clips further to the right here. - I can add five frames and now my edit point has changed their notice. - How it's showing me plus 15 here. - It's also showing me plus 15 here because that means I have taken the edit 15 frames that - way. - Now, - if I hit Space Bar, - it's going to play a section or around that edit, - and it's gonna keep re looping that so I can keep watching that to decide whom did I nail - it? - Is that exactly? - The edit I want Hit space Bar again brings it back into trim mode. - And maybe I might you know it. - Actually, - I want to I want to go mawr frames to my right. - I want to add on. - I want to do 19 now. - I can hit space bar again and watch that I Was that the right thing? - Great. - There we go. - That's what I want to do. - Maybe you want to make it so I just want to actually, - you know, - I want to bring this particular clip on clip be. - I want to bring it back a little bit, - so let's do that's minus back a little bit. - Great. - Now on a hit space bar, - it didn't affect anything. - Clip a. - It only affected clip be some keyboard shortcuts that are really handy for this, - and you can use just the buttons. - But some keyboard shortcuts that are really handy here are if you want to move a clip. - If you want to move it to the left, - you can hold on option or Ault on Press the Left key, - and that's going to move your head it to the left. - Press the right key. - It's gonna move to the right. - If you also hold down shift, - it's going to do. - It's gonna move it. - Five frames, - five frames, - right, - five frames left. - Another shortcut. - Way to do this, - and this is actually a way that I find myself using a lot. - Let's click on just this right side here, - and I just want affect that I can actually play up to the moment that I want to watch by - pressing L. - And that's gonna move everything forward. - And when I hit Kay, - it has now made the edits. - Moved that in 0.104 frames, - forward toe wear to that moment when I hit Kay. - That's really far forward, - and actually, - sometimes I'd most the time. - I don't end up hitting Plato Waterway through, - but if you hold down K while doing this and you tap L O Now you're moving forward one frame - at a time. - You can also hold down K and tap J and move back one frame at a time. - I just find that more handy. - It just seems to fit better with my hand. - Hold down K with hold on care of the middle finger and then move J k and l around that way - . - So there you go, - those air tricks for it to get out of the trim window hit t again and your program owner - comes back up and you're back down into your timeline here. - One last thing. - Love to show you. - Um, - since we're now working with multiple tracks video, - sometimes you don't want Teoh. - See, - um, - what's on this? - You won't actually see what's on video track one, - But you can't because video Track two is covering that. - We'll just go here to the eyeball, - cantata that off and the great. - Now I can see what is underneath underneath the video there. - It's basically the same thing as mute. - Mute is the option that you can use if you don't want to hear particular audio track just - hit mute right here, - also with audio. - If you want to hear Onley, - one particular audio track, - you can hit the solo track that's going to basically mute every other track. - Except for the track that is soloed. - You can also solo multiple tracks at the same time. - This is handy if you have, - like a dozen audio tracks for some reason, - and you want to hear just tracked one and four together. 14. Creating Titles: - So now you have most of your video in place, - or even all of it. - It that's where you want to end up. - You have your B roll that's happening here on track to you have your narration story that's - happening here on track one, - and then you also have your music that you've possibly added in. - And you've also said key frame marks for different audio points, - different audio points throughout your video to make it sound its best. - But you know what? - There's always Mawr that you can do to a video. - Maybe you want to add in some title work in it. - I really like. - Sometimes you want to put titles over a black screen. - Sometimes you want to put it right over the actual image. - So I'm going to show you right now how to go about creating that title. - I like to keep my titles in their own separate Been, - though, - So let's create a credit. - Been here and let's call that titles I'm gonna open that been, - And now that I'm inside here, - I can come here to the new item and I can choose title all rights and let's give this a - title that's going to be something like what my opening title is. - Let's call it reclaimed Micro gardens. - There we go and you're going to notice by default, - it's going to open up the width and height in the time base and risky. - All this is gonna be set to whatever your sequence eyes set to. - But if for some reason this you want this any different, - you can adjust these elements right here. - But I find that it just opens up the way that I just want to go ahead and use it so great - once you got the title in there, - Okay, - you'll notice down here my been again that it created a title for me here. - And then this is my title window. - My title window is going to keep is a background wherever the play head is. - Nice thing about that is that lets me create titles based offered where objects are lets me - know, - is my title actually showing up at the end of day in that spot? - So let me delete this title here, - and let's had a new title in this section here. - Increase the box sizes of everything here to what you can see a lot better. - Okay, - great. - So I know that I want my title to be somewhere around over over this screen right now. - I just know that it's gonna be I don't have to set the exact in point or out point of it - yet. - I just know that my title is gonna happen over this image. - So then I can come up here and click on my type tool. - I can just click once, - and it brings up type. - I know that. - I just want this to say reclaims Micro Garden's, - but oh, - man, - I do not like this. - I thought that is being used here. - No problem. - Click on that box. - Come up here and you will see where it says 20 TV. - That's actually my faults in this. - I like using a font if I can find it here, - Um called necks a light. - That's what I found was really nice for this one. - You know what? - Rather than searched the home menu was gonna type in Ugo, - I got my next of bold my work. - You know, - I'm not as crazy about that one. - I actually really want I really want this to be thinner move that box around. - Let's make this next light. - There we go. - OK, - I kind of like that. - But you know what I don't like. - I'm going to do all capital letters, - all right, - All capital letters. - And, - you know, - this is still just a little too big for me, - so I can grab the corner of the box, - you know? - So the arrow changes. - And if I hold down shift, - it's going to keep the size of the, - uh, - of the fault. - It's gonna keep the standard with on height to go with it. - If I don't hold down shift, - though, - I click that I can distort it. - However, - I want in whatever funky manner that I want to do that. - So close that down. - Let's bring it down. - Let's try it about and right there. - Okay, - So now that I've done this, - though, - notice how everything is off center. - Easy way to center. - These things come here to the left. - You'll see that there's actually centering options. - You can center it to the horizontal line and or to the vertical line. - And then you consented to the horizontal line. - They're great. - Now my title is dead center. - I can create as many titles in here as I want. - I can say reclaim Michael Gardens video by and then I can do I can also just I want to keep - that same font. - If I hold down the option key, - click and drag duplicates it right there and then I can choose my text again. - Highlight all that by holding down shift and hitting up, - and then I can put my name right there. - Great. - And I can now center, - that is. - Well, - maybe that one I don't want actually send her to the vertical line. - And now one thing that I can do is I can actually let's say some of these were all out of - order here, - but I want all three of these two at least lineup center. - I can grab by holding shift. - I can grab multiple of the boxes, - just click on him. - And now I can decide where how I want to align these multiple boxes together. - I can align them on the horizontal left axis and that will bring them all up. - Side is that way. - I can center. - Put him in horizontal center. - I can put him in vertical center. - That second is helpful for Font, - though, - but you can also have him go. - Let's take him back outs. - Make sure this just did. - See, - there we go. - I can also, - if I have wanted to. - Maybe I want him all to be in the same line. - For some reason, - maybe I've created put this as a different font here. - For some reason, - I want that to be Optima, - and but I want them all to have the same vertical top there we go can do that right there. - And now that they're all, - they're both selected. - If I go to center this, - it's not going to center the individual clips. - It's going to center these things as a whole together, - so it's gonna assume that this is just one giant box and it'll center in based on that - Aiken. - Center them both together that way, - So that's one way that you can go by doing. - I'm going to go back a couple steps, - though I liked how it looked when I did something like that. - I don't want me to be his prominent here, - so let's grab both of those, - shrink it down a little bit. - It's Centrum great and now, - Maybe I want actually my name to hide a little bit Mawr. - So maybe I don't want it to be white. - Maybe I wanted to be a lighter grey. - So then I could come over here to the right side and you could see here. - You have, - like, - a whole bunch of different options here. - You can increase the space between letters by going to the tracking option here. - Just drag that. - Put your mouth over the numbers there, - drag to the right, - or drag to the left. - And then you can also increase. - If you had if you had a situation where you had these titles on top of each other like that - in the same title box, - you can just click that title box, - come to the Koerting option here on Sorry, - not the cunning option, - the leading option here and choose the leading option. - And then that will increase and decrease your options here. - So there you go. - But I want to take that back. - Let's take that. - Take those all back Trump's Do you want the center? - Okay. - I'm gonna quickly center everything again. - Okay? - But like I was saying, - I want the's on that student center. - Very well center. - If I want these to be more of a grey, - I can come here to color click on color wants. - And then, - Hey, - I now have this box that I can move around and change the color to whatever I wanted to be - . - I wanted to be another grade there. - Okay, - they go on. - Now you can see that my font has changed. - That's nice, - because this title stands out, - but this also is is prevalent there for people to see. - It just doesn't instantly grab the eye on distract people. - You can also choose a color that's already on your screen by coming over here to the - eyedropper and then you can choose these colors. - Knows how the font is actually changing colors as I move this around. - So that's also kind of a cool feature. - Maybe I want to actually think match to that gray. - That's right there and great. - There we go. - It's kind of cool looking title for us. - So once I've created the title they want here, - you can add shapes. - You can do lines and say that I want actually at a shape or something here. - Um and I want to add. - Actually put that shape behind. - Let's arrange. - So if you create that shape and then right, - click it, - you get to arrange here and then you can send it back. - Great. - Now that is actually behind behind my thought right there and again. - I can also center that one. - And you know what? - Maybe actually still want to see the image that's going on back there so I can grab that - shape, - and I can lower my opacity on that shape. - There we go. - That's kind of a nice way that I can actually make that font stand out a little bit more - while also still showing the image that's happening behind there. - Um, - sometimes it's also nice to maybe just take that whole shape and move it all the way across - . - So let me show you what that looks like. - Great. - All right, - so now that I've created this whole fought created this whole text that title here Sorry, - you can close down this box and you can see that the title hasn't actually been added on to - the timeline. - We don't see it in our program window. - It's actually still over here in our been to bring it over. - I can this directly drag and drop from my project window and size it where I want it. - Boom, - There we go. - It's actually right in place, - but I want my video to fade in right here, - my titles not fading in with it. - So then I can increase the size of our video track here. - We did that before by lifting that up right there or again, - you can do the commander control plus or scroll wheel on your mouse. - Zoom in a little bit. - You're gonna notice here that I have a line going across the top here. - This line represents the opacity of this particular item of the of the title here. - It's also the same thing, - you know? - So it's the same thing here on our clip. - If I bring this key frame up, - I now see full full of pastor can see that clip. - But I want it. - Teoh actually match these key frames here so I can either take my pen tool and then just - kind of I eyeball it right above and lower that Great. - Now you'll see that my title actually fades in along with my video, - right there. - There's another quick way, - though, - that you can quickly get the opacity is to match. - Choose your selection tool. - Choose the clip that has no opacity that you like on it, - right Click that tool that clip it copy, - then come up to your clip where you want to add that capacity. - Right click that clip and hit paste attributes, - and you notice here that there's the scale attributes of time. - There's motion. - There's a passage time remapping. - I don't want to do any of these other ones. - I just want to do my opacity right in there. - So I d select everything except rapacity. - Hit okay, - and it's automatically set my a passage to match to match that clip right there. - That's a really quick way. - If you want your titles to fade in at the exact same time as your clip, - I should note with titles. - Now if you come here on the project window. - If you double click on that title, - it's going to bring up your title window here. - It's not gonna take it into the source window, - so if you want to see it in the source window, - you have to drag and drop it into the source window there. - And then you can also set your in point an out point in there and then bring it down into - the timeline right there. - All right, - Sometimes you run into a situation where you want to use a title more than once. - Now, - you might actually think yourself. - Okay. - Hey, - I can just grab this title from here in the source window and in the project window. - I mean, - and then bring that to the timeline here. - And oh, - I brought it over here and it doesn't look like it fits. - Actually, - this is going over. - All the action is covering this person's face. - Well, - that's not nice. - So I double click it double click the title clip. - In order to adjust my title, - I click on the items that I want to move. - I move those items just to take him out the person's face. - And I also get rid of video by Daniel Long Decrease that they're okay. - Sweet. - Well, - that looks good for this particular section. - But then if I close the box and now, - if I come back to the beginning here, - Wait. - It's messed up. - My first clip. - So Let's take everything back. - Let me show you a better way that you can do this. - Don't pull. - Basically, - what you don't want to do is just grab that same title from the project window. - A nice way to duplicate a title within within. - The timeline here is select that title. - Hold on Option or Ault, - drag and drop to where you want it. - And now notice that I actually have two titles Now, - over in my project window, - you can read title one of those. - Maybe I want this to be This is this new one. - Here is my, - uh, - ending title. - And so now if I want to do change my ending title, - I can double click that there. - You see that the title now said, - Ending up there, - there's this title ending. - Okay, - well, - I want this out of face and I don't want video mundane along there. - Let's to meet those that's make all our movements that we did earlier, - and we'll bring this down to the bottom here. - Okay, - great. - Now I can close that. - Now I have a new title that's working down here for me without affecting this title. - That's at the very beginning 15. Exporting for Online: - The simplest way to export is to clear everything off your timeline. - That doesn't have anything to do with the video that you want to export. - If you do, - for some reason, - want to keep all the things that air, - uh, - extra on the timeline, - you can just set your outpoint. - Ah, - at the very end, - your clip. - And that means that Onley everything between the in point and the out point is going Teoh - be exported. - There's one more bit of information that's good to know. - Before you export your video. - Come over here to the project window and extend this outward and you're gonna see here - frame rate and go to the sequence that you are planning on exporting and take a look at - what that frame rate is there for 23.976 pre close to 24 frames. - You might have it a 29 97 which is close to 30 frames per second, - or it might be a 25 frames per second. - Believe European cameras shoot at 25 frames per second. - Eso That's a good thing to know when we get into this export process, - because when you export your going to determine your preset based off of based off your - frame rate there. - So I'm gonna show you how to export your video to get it, - either on Vimeo or YouTube. - There are a lot of other ways that you can export your video, - but that's the one that we're gonna do for this skill share. - So let's go to up to file export. - And we want to export media, - which you can also do command M or control M. - And that's going to bring up your export settings window here and right in this section on - the left side. - It shows you your video, - and it shows you what you've chosen from that in point to that outpoint what you want to - export. - You can change that in here. - I just grabbing this triangle and moving it around. - But I want to do the whole video, - so I'm going to just leave it where it is. - Over here on the right is where we get to our export settings, - and now there's a whole lot of in ways that you can export here, - and there's a lot of great sites online that can explain to you the complex world of ah ah - formatting. - I'm going to show you how to export for video and YouTube. - So you want to go to your format and choose H 264 I think by default, - quick time might have been the one that comes up. - Choose here. - H 264 Not for blue Ray, - just the plain one. - Then come down here to your presets and there's a whole lot of presets for this. - Come down here and choose the video HD now based off of what your frame rate Was he over in - the project window? - Choose the setting for that 23 976 25 or 29 97 If your video is at 60 frames per second or - anything higher, - I'll quickly show you what to do. - Right now. - Let's choose 23 976 Once you've got that set, - this is where you determine where you're going to save the file and you can put in the - output name for it. - So you click on that once it brings up the save, - as I want to save in my skill share folder. - So I will click over that I will type the title that I want to have for my video, - and then I'm going to hit Save, - and I want to make sure that I'm exporting video and exporting audio. - So make sure both those boxes are checked. - All right, - now that we come down into the video setting, - and the great thing about having the preset already is, - it determines a lot of these things here. - I'm going to show you just the thing. - Just quickly show you what these are all about. - The width and height here is based. - Off the pixels are the dimensions that you won't have for the final video. - 12 80 by 7 20 is a nice 16 by nine aspect ratio on also looks really great, - especially when playing on Vimeo or YouTube. - You can also do 10 80 p if you wanted to. - Again, - that's a preset that's here. - Um, - you can choose the video or even confusing the YouTube settings that air down here. - You can also do standard definition if you want, - which is anything. - That's a route that's less than 7 20 DVDs are 5 40 which is that area anyways, - probably just spitting a bunch of numbers at you. - So for right now, - you should keep it a 12 80 by 7 20 Uh, - right here is the frame rate. - So we have it set for ours. - A 23 976 But if you are shooting or if you're if you're system tells you that you're - sequences at anything higher than 29 97 you can choose that in these locations here, - you can choose the 60 frames per second. - If you are higher than 29 97 I find it is really helpful. - It just hit this match source option and it matches a lot of the settings that you have. - Um, - but we want Teoh keep going down the list here. - Just keep all these things the same. - You get here too. - Bit rate. - This is the one thing that I change from the video for them you're setting because my - system, - because they were doing such a short video, - I like to have something that's a little bit higher than a target bit rate of five. - I mean, - let's bring it up just a bit. - Begin doing up to six, - or you can bring it up to seven. - If you're doing a video that was longer, - then was maybe like 20 minutes long or even longer than that. - Then you would want to consider keeping this at VI BR, - which stands for variable bit rate, - and the system is going to determine based off of moments in your video that seem like - there's not a lot of action going on. - It's gonna process those moments with a lower bit rate and moments where there's a lot of - information going on your screen is gonna process the higher bit rate. - Um, - it takes longer to export with that setting, - but it ultimately creates a smaller file at the end of the day. - But since we're already working with a really small, - really short video, - that's gonna be a pretty small file. - Let's change RC constant bit rate. - All right, - so once you have that set there, - I'll show you just quickly in the audio tab. - We're not going to change anything in the audio tab, - but if you didn't want to, - this is where you would do that. - All right, - so once it's good to go, - I'm just gonna hit the export button right there, - and great, - you'll see it start processing through the video. - Give it a minute and it'll get everything done. - And then once once that's finished will upload that to the mirror YouTube, - and I'll quickly show you that process. - Now I have the video actually fully processed. - It's been exported, - and you could just watch this. - You can just go ahead and watch the video. - Right now, - you can bring it into a DVD system and not on burning onto a DVD. - Or you can start exporting it to your friends. - I'll just quickly show you the video process, - which is really simple. - Come down here. - Open up my I my safari, - my Internet Explorer here come over to video and video. - You've got to set up an account with them. - Once you set up an account, - you'll be able to upload your video, - and it's very simple, - cause on the right side here they have this upload a video. - You can't miss it, - so you upload that. - Choose a video to upload, - and you just have to find your video here in your system. - Desktop school share, - how to go, - Michael Garden hit, - choose, - and then the last thing I've got to do is just upload the selective video. - And once I've uploaded the selected video, - then I can change the title of a here. - I can change the description here. - I can add in tags of people confined it. - I can also make this video private and knows how well it's uploading here. - I can still do these things down here, - But if you do change the title, - it's called This, - uh, - the school is how to video. - Um, - I have to hit save changes. - Great settings have been saved. - Then I could move over a privacy here, - and you can choose to add this a password if only a few people. - If you only want a few people to watch it, - you could determine whether people can download the video from the site on the and those - things. - And then that there's a couple other features that you have here right now. - Let's just leave those. - Yeah, - so once that's uploaded, - video will do its magic and you'll have a video on video. - You'll go to that video, - and you will send people the U. - R L Once your videos been uploaded, - it's right here on video. - You can just double click on a copy and paste that into your, - uh, - your e mails. - You sent out people or anywhere you want it to go public. - So great. - There you go. - That's the whole process of exporting your video and getting it online. - Okay, - this is the part where I just want to say thank you. - Thanks for your time. - I really hope that you been able to create a fun video, - and I hope this has been a good way for you to learn how to edit in Adobe Premiere again. - Please feel free to add any questions to the boards or ah, - send Any comments are way. - And that way we can make sure that we just make this the best class that we can That's - helpful to people. - If there's anything you feel that we missed or anything you're not understand, - just let us know. - And we're looking forward to seeing the videos that you create the meaningful how to videos - and great looking forward to hearing the stories that you tell along with them. - So thanks so much 16. OPTIONAL: Dissolve + Using Effects: - All right, - let me show you about how to use effects on certain clips. - I'm really mute everything here. - Now, - if you want to add in some effects here, - let's let's increase our box size here. - You notice the tab here in our project window. - Come over here to effects and effects again. - Has all these folders that organize anything? - There are audio effects that you can play with their audio transitions. - There's video effects, - and then there's also video transitions. - Like the title suggests, - a video transition is going to be a transition from one clip to the next clip. - So right now, - the way that our edits go, - it's just a harsh cut going from Clip A here on to clip be. - But maybe I want to actually see those two clips fade together. - Okay, - One way that you can do that is that you can go here into your video transitions and then - going to the four called Dissolve, - and you have all these different dissolves that you can play with. - Here. - You can do a cross dissolve, - you could do it. - Uh, - dip to black. - I'll show you those in just a second, - but one really nice thing about Premier, - is this search field up here? - So if you know the name of a particular effect that you want to do, - you can, - uh you can type in the name of that effect, - and it's going to show you just that those affect right there. - Great. - That's a quick way to find Crossed is also I don't have to spend all my time searching - around looking through here. - Maybe I also want to do color correction so I could just type, - then color on. - There we go. - I've got a whole folder of color correction stuff here and everything with the title color - comes up. - This also works if you're looking for clips here in the project window as well. - If you know the name of a clip and you're trying to find it, - you can type it in right there. - But for my effects here right now, - I'm gonna show you the dissolved effect. - Let's do it across. - Dissolve across, - dissolve is designed to move is to transition from crossing over. - Basically, - from this clip on your left into your clip on your right and all I did there to bring that - into places I just grabbed it on the from the effect box here. - And I just dropped it right into place right over that, - um, - right over that effect. - And here you go, - play it through. - You can see my computer's not running as smoothly, - but it is generally a smooth transition from one frame to the next. - One last thing to note about effects is that if you double click on them, - it doesn't open the source window. - It opens up this ah set duration. - You can change the duration of your dissolve, - get more specific with the time on it. - If you want Teoh, - affect it. - Though up in the source window you can go to the effect controls. - And then when you just click on the on the effect once it brings it up here, - you can see here that you can change. - Thean pointed out points of the dissolve and this actually changed the in pointed out point - of the of the clip underneath it, - you can extend the length of it here. - These are all things that you can do down the timeline. - But nice thing about knowing about this effect control panel is when you get to other - effects, - like the three way color corrector, - which is your one of your big color correction tools. - This is how you're going to see it. - And how you gonna be able to use that tool. - You won't see it necessary down here on the timeline. - Quite the same way that you would see the cross dissolve. - So you just click once on the clip that has the effect come to your effect controls tab - here. - And there you go. - You have your full three way color corrector control. - You don't need to worry about the three way color corrector for this tutorial video. - I just want to show you if you do start playing around with effects. - This is how you get them. - Um, - how do you get Teoh play around with? - Most of them is in this effect, - controls panel
