Organizing Project Files: Before we start creating a project in Adobe Premiere Pro, you need to have your project finds organized by categorizing your project assets into separate sub-folders. It will be easier for you to input them into Premiere Pro as well as to find them whenever you need them. The folder structure that I use is a numbered parent folder for every new project. Also, I add that folder too quick access to access the project files quickly. Inside the project folder, I use several sub-folders based on the media files that I'm going to use for that project. The most common ones or video clips, where I keep all my video files that I shot or downloaded audio clips. Here rise to all the voice recordings, background music, and sound effects that I wanted to use. Images. I store all the pictures that are images, GIF files and logos here, adobe project files. This is the folder where you will be saving the Premier Pro project file, which contains all your editing information regarding the project. You might need to access them later if you want to make some changes or revisions to your edits, Render Output video. We will use this folder to export the rendered final video. Sometimes you might need to make toward more versions of fluoride it like using different effects or different background music. It's a drug using a separate folder for exporting rendered video avoids confusion with the source video clips. Moreover, it will be easier for you to find or access it when you upload this video to YouTube or other online platforms. 3. Create a Project: When you install Adobe Premiere Pro on your computer, you will be welcomed by this home or start spring. Once you have started working on projects in Premiere Pro, you can see your most recent projects you have done here in this Start screen. Alternatively, if you want to specifically open any previously worked on projects for the purpose of making any revisions or to continue our work in progress project. You can click on this open project button to open any previously saved project. Since you are new here, we need to start a new project. So click on the New Project button. You will need to choose a name and location. Let's name it known video editor project, and go to choose location. Let's save it in the subfolder. Adobe project files inside the Premier Pro for non video editors folder. Once you are in the subfolder, click the Select Folder button. Traditional ways of importing videos or discussed in the next video. Premiere Pro has introduced this new import, edit and export taps. Since version 22.3. Under this import data, you can browse to any folder you want by clicking on these links in the sidebar. Then navigate to any folder where your video and audio clips or let me open desktop Premier Pro for non video editors. And then open video clips folder. This is where I have saved the videos to be used to teach you this course. You can also watch the clips from left to right to see the preview. If you don't have this thumbnail view, make sure you have switched to the thumbnail view from the list view to preview the clips. You can also adjust the size of these thumbnails by moving this slider. After previewing. If you want to import the clip into the project, first, you should select it. You need to select this checkbox to select the clips. If you can see the checkbox, just mouse over the clip to view the checkbox. If we want to import multiple clips, you can select multiple clips. Just continue checking the checkboxes of multiple clips to select them. If you have previously organized all your clips, like we discussed in the previous lesson, all of your video clips would be in the same folder. So you can easily select all the video clips you need inside a single folder. If you want to select the audio clips or images which are in another folder. Or if you want to select some more video clips which are in a different folder than this, then you can do that too. You don't need to click on the Create button now and start all over again. Just navigate to the folder value or other clips or and select them. After selecting the clips. The clips will appear here in the bottom as thumbnails. If you have mistakenly selected some additional clips, or if we have decided to remove some clips from your selection. For any other reason, just click on the thumbnails here and remove them by pressing the Delete key. You can add or delete clips later in the project panel two. On the right side, you have a few other options too. You can choose to copy these media files to where you save your project files. Since we have a better way of organizing files, we don't need this. Else. This option copies all the media files that you have selected across various folders to the folder where you saved your project. In our case, it would be this folder, Adobe project files. New bin means a new folder. Instead of importing the media files directly into the project panel, this option will create a new folder, aka new bin, and inputs, all the media files inside that bend. It won't create a new folder in your storage. It just creates a new folder inside the project panel alone. You can also choose to create a new sequence from here itself and give a name for it. To understand what a sequences. Let me give you this example. To edit this course. In the Premiere Pro, I would have created a project in the name of this course. But inside the project, I would have created many sequences and each one for each lesson. In case of wedding videos, you can create a new project for a wedding, but different sequences for engagement video, wedding video and highlights. At this stage, you might not understand what a bin or a sequence or project panelists, as you're not seeing it. We will discuss all these in the next video. When I explain to you the premier pro workspace. So for now, let me uncheck these things and click create. All the files we have selected are important here into the project panel. This is how Adobe Premier Pro workspace looks like. 4. Workspaces in Premiere Pro: Learning, assembly, editing, color, effects, audio, caption, and graphics. These are the default workspaces that are available in Premiere Pro. If you can see these workspaces, click on this Workspace button and select Show workspaces tab. If you can find this workspaces button itself, then update your Premiere Pro to the latest version. Premier Pro has a lot of panels inside it, or what we used to know as windows, each serving its own purpose. You will need different tunnels at different stages of video editing. That's why they are organized in different sets and different workspaces. When you click on any of the workspaces, these different sets of panels appear. The existing ones also get rearranged and resized to make the best use of the space available. For example, assembly Workspace displays a big project panel, source monitor run program monitor, one behind the other, along with Timeline panel at the bottom. This will be useful to assemble clips from the project panel, preview them in the source panel, and then assemble them in the timeline panel easily. Let's go to the editing workspace. Here the project panel has become smaller. And the source monitor, as well as the program monitor or arranged side-by-side. This, these suitable when you do editing in the timeline sequence. Color workspace is best suited for color correction and color grading of footage. If you want to give a cinematic look to your video, this is where you do that. Here you can see Lumetri Scopes on the left and Lumetri Color panel on the right. The Lumetri panel is used to do color correction or grading. The Lumetri Scopes panel is used to examine the color of a clip. Effects workspace is to be used while applying video or audio effects and transitions to your video at it. It will show an effect controls panel on the left, and effects panel with a list of effects and transitions on the right. Effect Controls panel shows different properties of effects that are applied to the timeline. You will find this workspace comfortable to find various effects and customize them, or add animations using keyframes. You can also manually rearrange the balance or re-size the panels to based on your comfort. If you want to view a particular panel in full screen, then press Tilda key on the keyboard. You can find this key below the escape key. Press it again, come back to normal view. Sometimes you might close some panels. And as a beginner, you might not even remember what it is that you closed. In that case, you can reset any workspace to its default settings to bring all the panels back. To reset your currently I would go to Window workspaces. Reset to saved layout, or click on this workspaces button and click reset to saved layout. Alternatively, you can press Alt Shift 0 on Windows or Option Shift 0 on Mac. This resets your current workspace alone. If you want to reset any other workspace to its default setting, switch to that workspace and then reset the layout. Let's switch to editing workspace and discuss more about some essential panels in Premier Pro. This is the timeline panel. This is where all of your cuttings and editings happen. Here you can assemble various video clips, audio clips, and apply special efforts. Time moves from left to right here. This is called the playhead. And if you move or place it at any particular time, the video preview at that time will be shown in the program monitor panel. You can place the audio and video clips on various audio and video tracks in the timeline sequence. Here, v1, v2, and v3 or video tracks A1, A2, and A3, or audio tracks. By right-clicking here and selecting add tracks. You can add more video or audio tracks. When you preview the timeline in the program, monitor. The clip in the upper track, such as v3, will appear in front of a clip in lower track, such as V2, V1 virus. All of the audio tracks, that is A1 to A3 play together. So you can create a sound mix by adding multiple layers of sound on different audio tracks. Project panel is used to import and organize all the media files that you will need in your project. You can manually create individual folders called bins. By clicking on this button, you can import into your folders, into the project panel by just dragging and dropping them. Let us import our media assets from the Adobe project files folder by just dragging and dropping audio clips, video clips, and images folder into the project plan. If there are any subfolders inside the folders you drop. You will get the same folder structure here. Or you can simply double-click the empty space here inside the project panel and go to the location where your video so and select the files. Or you can import the entire folder to. Premier Pro has a new way to import videos. Since version 22.3, you have got the import edit and export links here. Click on Import. Here, you will get your local files and folders, including some sample media from Adobe tutorials. Here too, you can select multiple clips from several folders, or select the entire folder itself. Once the selection is over, you can choose to create a new bin and a new sequence. Or you can simply import, press this Import button. The files will be imported. You can either view the files in the project panel as lists or thumbnails. Thumbnail view shows a preview of the first frame of the video clip or a default waveform for the audio clip. If you mouse over the thumbnails from left to right, you can preview the clips quickly. Inside the thumbnails. List view shows all the technical details of the clip, such as frames per second video in our duration. And they are media duration and some audio details. Source monitor panel is used to preview the media in the project panel. The space bar key is the shortcut to play or pause the preview to zoom in or zoom out the preview. Use this drop-down list. Most of the clips that are taken straight out of camera can be shaking the beginning and end as the videographer needs to press the shutter button. So as an editor, you might prefer to cut them out. Also, not always, the entire clip looks interesting. You might wish to take only a certain portion of each clip to be included in your final edit. There can be several clips like that. That's where Morgan and markup buttons help you. You can select a specific part of the clip that you want to add to the timeline sequence using these buttons. Take this clip, for example. After having a glimpse of this clip in the project panel, I double-click on it to preview in the source monitor tunnel. Then I will click the Run button at the position where I think the good portion of this clip starts. I will end this selection by clicking on this mark out button. Alternatively, you can use the keyboard shortcuts I for my alkyne and o for more gold. If a clip has both audio and video, then you can preview just the audio alone using this drag audio only button in the source monitor panel. 5. Timeline Sequence: After importing reduce into project, it's time to assemble them in the timeline panel. Only if we create a sequence first, we can assemble clips inside it by clicking on the new item button in the project panel. And by choosing sequence, you can create a new sequence. Each sequence in the timeline asked for several technical fields. But the essential ones or resolution or reduce size and frame rate or FPS. Like I said in the previous lesson, you can create many sequences inside a single Premiere Pro project. But often video editors work with one master sequence to produce their redo. You can either create a sequence based on the properties of the clips imported or based on your own custom requirements. If the resolution, frame rate, and aspect ratio of the important clips or the same as the output video you want to produce. Then you can simply create a sequence with the properties of one of the clips. You have important. To check these properties of the clips. Make sure you're in the List View in the project panel. Right-click on any one of these videos and select New Sequence From Clip. A new sequence will be created with the exact same name and properties as that of the video clip. At first, it might be confusing to identify which one is the video clip and which one is the sequence. Look at these icons. If you're in thumbnail view, you can find these icons in the bottom-right corner. In the list view, you can identify easily the icon for the sequence will be different from the icon for video clips. This taste icon for sequences. To differentiate the sequences easily in the future. Rename them as soon as you create them. You can just click on the name of any sequence in the project panel. To rename it. Let me rename it to sequence couples on ***** and place it in a separate been named sequences. Other shot ways to create a new sequence is to drag the video directly into the timeline. Are you can drag a clip, the new item button in the project panel. In both these ways to the sequence name and the properties will be same as the clip name. So rename it as soon as you create the sequence. Permute Pro also offers you some presets for sequence creation based on different camera configurations. Let's see them too. If you click on this new item button in the project panel and select sequence, you will get this new sequence window. Here, you will be presented with a lot of camera presets. You need to choose the one that's relevant to your camera when you're recording settings, as well as the resolution frame rate as per your required output production video. For example, if I have recorded a ten ADP video in a Sony mirrorless camera in AVC HD format at the TFP is, then I would expand AVC HD, then ADP, then select AVC HD, ten ATP. But for the same recording configuration. If I wanted to produce a video at 720 p resolution and frame rate, then I would expand 720 p and select AVC HD, 72024. Here, AVC HD is the code that my camera uses. But 72 ATP and 24 FPS, or the resolution and frame rate of the production video. I want, once you have chosen a preset given name to the sequence and click Okay. A new sequence will be created. But if you don't know your camera settings or if you have chosen some wrong presets. You don't need to worry when you add the clip from the project panel to the sequence for the first time, you will get a clip mismatch warning. And you can choose to adjust the sequence settings to match the clip. Or if you are sure that the sequence settings you have created is the one you want, you can choose to keep existing settings. Sometimes your imported video clip may have a different resolution, aspect ratio, and frame rate than what you want to produce. Or the available presets may not have the combination of settings you want. For example, you might have imported a video with four K resolution 120 If p is frame rate, that is slow motion video. But you might want to produce a cinematic than ATP video ad 24 of peers. Technically, you will be editing a fork a video to produce a ten ADP video. That is called down scaling. Or you might have imported a widescreen aspect ratio, that is 16 is to nine, like your TV. But you might wish to produce a square aspect ratio video for Instagram at one is to one aspect ratio. Or you might even wish to produce a nine is 216 vertical aspect ratio with you for TikTok, in all these cases, you will need to create a new sequence that is based on your own customer requirements. Let's see how to create one such sequence with custom resolution or frame rate. Go to file new sequence, or just press Control plus N on Windows, or Command N on Mac. To create a new sequence. Skip the sequence presets, and come to settings. Under editing mode. Choose Custom. Under time-based. Choose your frame rate. If you want to produce cinematic videos. Choose 24 FPS. If you are producing for the web, then choose 30 FPS or 60 FPS based on how smooth you want the produced video to be. Change the frame size accordingly. For widescreen, choose a resolution in 16 is 29 aspect ratio, 1920 by 1084, full HD. And the T8 40 by 2164449 is 16. Vertical aspect ratio. Just reverse it. That is 1080 by 1920. As soon as I enter 1080 instead of 1920, you can see the aspect ratio changed to one is to one. If I enter 1920 here, it will change to nine is 216. So you can conform the aspect ratio here. Leave the fields and display format to default values. Under walking color space. Normally you will work with Rick seven or nine. If you are going to work with high dynamic range videos, that is HDR videos, then choose 2100 here. Leave the audio and video preview settings to default. Give a name to the sequence, and click Okay to create a new sequence. Sometimes you might have thought to produce a for K24 FPS video and create a sequence based on that setting. Later, based on the assets or clips required or due to client budget, you might need to change it to ten ADP. That if p is technically you can edit your entire sequence in for K24 of peers, but exported in ten ADP piece. But it's just a scenario that I'm saying. If you ever want to change the sequence settings after you have created one, then right-click on the sequence in the project panel and select sequence settings. You can change the resolution from 3840 by 2160 to 1920 by 1080. That is for k 210 ADP resolution. And also change the frame rate to as per your needs. To delete any sequence. Come to the project panel, select the sequence and press Delete. Just closing the sequence in the timeline panel. Won't delete a sequence. 6. Learn Editing skills in Adobe Premiere pro: In this new Adobe Premiere Pro project, let us simple editing. This is folded from the download resources. We have bought six video clips and background music file. Let's see a quick preview of these clips. By moving the mouse over the thumbnail. I would like to Markin and Margot the interesting portion of these clips before adding it to the timeline. To do that, double-click on Eclipse to open-end the source monitor. Use this baseball game to play or pasta. Let me play from the beginning and pause exactly at the moment from which I want to select the interesting portion. We can either press this button or press I on the keyboard, hit the Spacebar key again to continue playback and posted this bond where we'd like to finish the selection. Press the record button or press O on the keyboard to finish the selection. To clear the molten or market. Right-click on the selection in the source monitor. Then select clearing or clear out or clear in-and-out based on what you want to do. People don't like to watch boring, unnecessarily long videos. As an editor, you should choose only the interesting portions of each group. As we have already selected such a portion using mark in and out points. Click and drag the clip from the source monitor to the Timeline panel. Insert just the selected portion of the globe. Alternatively, you can drop the unedited clip into the timeline directly and then remove the boring portions using the selection tool in the Tools window. Bring the point or the start of the clip. It will change to a left square bracket and a right arrow mark. Click and drag the beginning of the clip rightwards till you reach the mark and position. You will be shown in the program monitor. It will show two previews. Left. One is the previous frame in the timeline. If there are no clips immediately to the left, then a blank preview will be shown. The right one is the frame we are marking as Mark in position. Similarly, bring the pointer near the end of the clip. It will change to a left red color, arrow and right square bracket. Click and drag the end of the clip leftwards till you reach the market position. Here the left preview shows the market position, and the right Preview shows the next frame in the timeline. Most of the time, the imported clips name would be meaningless numbers along with some words. When you have tens or hundreds of clips imported into the project panel, you will lose track of which clip you have important and which clip you haven't. Don't worry. Here is an important tip. Once the clip is added to the timeline, you can see this blue video and audio icon in the bottom right corner of this ellipse thumbnail in the project panel, which denotes that this clip is present in the timeline. Clips without these blue, I can denote that they are not yet added to the timeline. If you keep the mouse over this for sufficient time, it will also show how many times the clip is used in the timeline. So if you have mistakenly added the same clip multiple times, you can find the doubt. Sometimes you might not need the recorded audio to be inserted along with the video. As you might have a separate voice-over track, or simply you might be adding background music. In those cases, you may just like to add the video portion alone. To do that, click and drag this video only button to the timeline. Similarly, you can drag and drop just the audio alone to using this audio alone button. Like I said before, you may have tens or hundreds of clips imported into the project panel. And you may wish to select an import multiple clips into the timeline. If you want to select multiple random clips, hold Control key on Windows, or Command D on Mac. Click on each of the random video clips you want to select. If you want to select multiple clips that are arranged in an order. Click on the first clip, press and hold the Shift key, and then click on the last clip to select all these video clips. Then drag and drop them into the timeline in any track. Input them into the timeline. Let's see how to zoom in and zoom out the timeline. As you will be doing this a lot while editing. If you want to zoom in into the timeline a little, then press Plus key on the keyboard. If you want to zoom out the timeline a little, then press the minus key on the keyboard. Alternatively, you can press and hold Alt key on Windows or Option key on Mac. And use your mouse wheel to zoom in and zoom out the timeline. If you want to see the entire timeline at once, then press Backslash key. You can find this key about the Return key. You can increase or decrease the track height by clicking and dragging here in between the tracks. Or simply double-click on the negative space of any trunk to increase or decrease its height. Let's cut the unwanted portions of the next clip using the selection tool. After I made the cut. There are some empty spaces on left and right, isn't it? If we play the preview in the program monitor after the end of Q2, there will be a brief moment of blank screen before T3 place. To remove that, right-click on the space between 23 and select ripple delete. Let me undo it to show you alternate methods to undo. Press Control plus Z on Windows or Command Z on Mac. Suppose if you want to undo and undo, redo, press Control plus Shift plus Z on Windows and Command plus Shift plus z on Mac. Alternative to ripple delete. You can click and drag the clip three to the end of crypto. When you do that, they will get magnetically attached to the clip too. Because snapping timeline or magnetic timeline feature is enabled. If you disable this magnet icon here, clips aren't attracted to each other when you bring them close. Know that most video editors like to keep this feature enabled. If you want to remove an eclipse, just select it and press Delete. But it will leave an empty space like before. If you don't want that empty space, when you delete clips, you should ripple delete it. To do that, select the clip and press Shift plus Delete on Windows or Shift plus function plus Delete on Mac. You can even delete multiple clips at once in the timeline by selecting multiple clips and then deleting them to select multiple clips in the timeline. Hold, Shift key and click on the clips or drag them out you to select them. Then press Delete key to delete them. Simply. Press Shift plus Delete on Windows or Shift plus function plus Delete on Mac to ripple delete them. Holding the Control key or command key won't work to select multiple clips on the timeline. The more of the clips within the timeline. Just click and drag a clip with the selection tool. Take the selection tool under the tool's box or press V on the keyboard. And you can just click and drag any clip to a new position. If you can't find these tools window, then go to Window menu and enabled tools. When you click and drag to move it. If you drop it in an empty place in the timeline, the clip will be moved from the existing spot to the new spot. But if there are some clips already present, when you drop it, then those previously present lips will be overwritten by this new club. If you don't want to overwrite the previous clips, then you can insert the nucleus there and push the previous clips to the right. To do that, click and drag the clip to the new location. But hold Control key on Windows or Command T on Mac, and then drop the clip on the new location. This action will insert this clip there and push the existing clips to the right. Then you add a clip with audio into the timeline. Though it's video and audio are separated on different video and audio tracks. By default, they will be linked to each other and they will move together. In case if you want to move them separately. First, you need to unlink them. Right-click the clip and select unlink. After that, you can move the video and audio separately. If you want to turn off the linking foreign entire sequence with lots of clips, then disabled this Linked Selection button near the magnet button on the timeline panel. Once unlinked, you can move or edit or delete the video and audio separately. Whereas if you just want to delete just the audio or video of Eclipse separately. You don't need to disable Linked Selection for that, or you don't even need to unlink the clip. There is a faster way to do that by just holding the Alt key or Option key, select the video or audio, and then press Delete. To split a clip at any particular time. Use the Razor Tool or press C on the keyboard to take the tool and click on a clip in the timeline at any particular time. It will be split into two. At the time. You can do this multiple times to split the clip. Several spots. We deleted just the video or audio separately. You can cut just video or audio alone in a clip. Hold the Alt key on Windows or Option key on Mac, and cut the video or audio using the razor tool to cut them separately. If you want to do that for an entire sequence, wherever needed, then disable the Linked Selection first, and then use razor to this d is helpful when you want to cut out the silence or noisy portion of the audio alone in a clip. For example. To cut out some parts of audio in this sequence. Take the razor tool or press C, then place a cut at the starting point of the noise, and then place another good ending point of the noise. Repeat this for all the noisy portions. Then take the selection tool or press V and holding Shift key, select all the noisy potions you want to remove. Technically, it will just be every other alternate audio clip. Then press delete, copy and already existing clip on the timeline. Hold Alt key on Windows, Option key on Mac, then click and drag a clip to take a copy. Sometimes you might not be able to edit the lower tract clips in the program monitor. If there are videos presenting the track above them. In those cases, you can temporarily hide the upper tracks and do the edit in the lower tracks. To hide and upper track. Click on the icon on the track. The preview of the track won't appear on the program monitor when you play the sequence, even in exports, the track own preference. Whereas if you simply don't want to mistakenly make edits in the upper tracks, while you select an edit clips in the lower tracks, you can simply log the upper tracks. To lock a track. Click on this log button. Once logged, it won't allow you to make any changes to the track. But the preview will be shown while playback, as well as in exports. That's the difference between hiding a track and locking a track. 7. Add Transition effects: A transition happens between two clips. Transition begins at the end of trip on, finishes before to begins. Most commonly used video transition in Premiere Pro is cross dissolve. And that for audio is cross fade. As they are the default transition of applied, these default transition affects Move your point or in-between two clips. It will change into either the left or right red square bracket. Right-click and select, apply default transitions. Let's see the preview. The transition looks in a way that clip to start spraying a few seconds before clip on finishes. To create this effect, the cross dissolve transition effect uses the unused frames in the beginning of trip to and at the end of clip one. If there are no such unused frames, then you will get a message, insufficient media. The transition will contain repeated frames. Let us see the preview. It looks like the transition effect is applied between the first frame of clip two and last few seconds of clip one, followed by the lost frame of clip 1, first few seconds of a clip to find whether a clip has a news media or not. You can look at the top left, and right corners of each clip in the timeline. If the triangle is present in the beginning of the clip, then it's the first frame of the clip. There are no unused frames before that. If the triangle is present in the end of the clip, then it's the lowest frame of the flip. There are no unused frames after the, if we want to apply either cross dissolve or cross fade effect to video or audio one lead. Then select either video or audio by holding Alt key or Option key and keyboard. Then right-click and select apply default transitions. If you want to apply other transition of its other than the default ones, then switch to Effects workspace on the top. Or you can press Alt Shift seven in Windows and Option Shift seven in Mac. Other method is to go to Window workspaces. Then efforts go to the Effects panel on the right side. Though there are a lot of things here, such as presets, Lumetri Presets, and much more. We are going to deal with video transitions and audio transitions in this lesson. Expand video transitions and then expand slide. Now click and drag the Push transition between two clips. You can increase or reduce the length of the transition. Let me zoom in on the timeline. Please. The pointer in the beginning or end of the transmission box, the pointer will change to a red square bracket. Click and move towards the center to reduce the length. Drag away from the center to increase the length of the transition effort. To select the transition effect, click on the transition of a box. It will change from semi-transparent and low, too wide color. On the source window panel. Go to the Effect Controls tab. Here you can change the duration of the transition, changing this value manually, or clicking and dragging the mouse up and down or left and right. Change the alignment to center a cut or start or end at GOT. Change this dot and n positions. A black border in Greece or reduce its width, change its color. You can even reverse the transition from right to left. This set of options change for various transition of x. But you can play around with these options anytime and customize the transition of it the way you want to change to another transition of instead of push, just drag and drop that effect on this push effect. For instance, let me change the transition to white. If I drag and drop this white perfect onto the push factor, it will change to wipe with a customized duration and alignment options. Similarly, you can add any transition of it if you want or editing and rendering of your video to take advantage of the graphic out on your computer. Then you count this accelerated effects button in the effects panel. It will hide the non accelerated effects. All these efforts use the graphic code instead of just the processor to render. So they will be much faster. Which means you can preview on the goal without rendering first, to render a sequence, select anywhere in the sequence, and press the return key on the keyboard. Also keep an eye on the usage of these transition of it's often because if you add more, then it may spoil the field of edits. Make your video edit as seamless as possible for a better, unprofessional. 8. Add Visual Effects: We are going to add some visual effects to the video clips in the timeline whenever you want to apply any effect or customize and all predicted by defect. Switch took the fence workspace. You can find all the effects listed in the effects panel, which is placed from the right side. In this lesson, we are going to use the effects under the audio effects and video of its folder, one leaf, to find an effect that we want to apply, we can either open these individual folders inside the video of x folder or audio effects folder and choose an effect. Or if you want to find a particular effect, then type the name of the defect in the effects panel search bar. As you start typing, all the effects that match will appear. For example, if you wanted to apply a blur effect, but you are not sure about the exact name of the video filter. Just start typing blur on this search bar. Premiere Pro will show the matching video filters. Make sure to choose a blur effect inside the video of x folder. Not under presets or transition of x, you can drag and drop any of these blur of what's under Video fits onto the video clips in this project. How placed a text with a bit of manual tracking done as the camera moves up, the text tracks this region knows accordingly, adding text and trucking. For another lesson. In this video, let's concentrate on adding a blur of like directional blur. Click and drag the directional blur effect to this clip. You might see no change in the preview. That's because we need to change the blur amount in the effect controls to see some change in the preview. Make sure you have selected the clip. Under Effect Controls tab, expand the directional blur and then blur length. Let's increase it to something like seven. If you like, you can change the angle by rotating this knob with the mouse to reset any options under the Effect Controls tab, click on the corresponding reset button. The blur we applying appears throughout the clip. What if I just need the clip to blur right at the start of the text and end with the text. Place the timeline play head right at the beginning of the text. Select the video clip. Under the Effect Controls tab. Click on the stopwatch like toggle Animation button. To the left of blur length. A diamond shape appears here, which denotes a keyframe. A keyframe marks the value of a certain effect at a specific point in time. Your marks the blur length value to be seven at play head position 1 second in timeline. Now place the play head a few frames before and change the blur length to 0. This will create a new keyframe with blurred linked value 0. Let us see the preview. You can see the blur gradually increasing between these two keyframes. Now place the play head at the end of the text, select the video clip, and come to the Effect Controls tab. Click on this diamond. Once we add a key frame with the value seven at this position, move the play head a few frames, right, and change the blood length to 0. Once you have toggled the animation. Whenever you change the value, new keyframe will be graded. To delete any key frame, select the keyframe and press delete to remove the visible entirely. Simply click on this fx button to disable the effect or select the defect in the Effect Controls tab and press, Delete. Let me undo and see the preview. Before trying other visible effects, let's dig into the pre-play defects for a clip, select a new clip for which you have not applied any effects. Go to the Effects Control tab. You can see Motion, Opacity, time remapping and some audio firms. Motion takes care of the basic transformation of the video clip. Double-click on the video in the program monitor. The clip will be ready for transformation. Click and move the clip. You can notice the position changing in motion f. Similarly, you can scale or rotate, resize width and height independently, uncheck uniform scale, and then resists the clip. If you move the anchor point, the rotation will give a different result. Rotation around the new ankle point. Let's place another clip. Or if we've reduced the opacity of this clip. We can see both clips with a semi transparency. You can go all created with this when you use it along with the masking, this circle mask. Now this clip appears only within this mask. To invert the mask click on inverted. You can use this to show picture in picture of your talking head videos. And that's just a start masking. You can do a lot more. We will deal with this masking in detail later. Now let's see some more effects. You can add a basic 3D effect and a perspective. Change, the swivel and the tilt angle and distance to the image. You can add the lens flare effect under Generate and create some lens first by changing the Flat center. Brightness. Lunchtime. If you want to blend the video with the lens flare, then you can increase the blend width, original amount you like. Under distort. Let's add the mirror of it. You can change the reflection to 90 degrees to the horizontal reflection effect that is on top and bottom of the frame. To see the vertical reflection effect on the left and right half of the frame. Divide this first value by two and enter half of 1280 is 640. So let me enter here. Let's see the proof. You can combine multiple effects on a videoclip. Adobe Premiere Pro has one of the best stabilization affects. This footage is taken with stabilization enabled, but still, it's certainly couldn't do a decent job. It still needs to be stabilized. Let me drag this footage to the timeline and add the Warp Stabilizer effect under distort. This is an accelerated effects. If your computer has some graphics power, it will be faster once they drop this effect onto the clip. It starts analyzing the clip frame by frame in the background. After that, it will start stabilizing the clip. Then we can customize the options under Effect Controls tab. Default values should surface most of the scenarios. But if you would like to change, then you can start with the end result as smooth motion. That is gimbal lake or no motion that is tripod like change smoothness from 0 to 100, percentage. Change stabilization method to position or position scale and rotation or perspective or subspace warp. To understand the stabilization method options, it's best. You try these options with an unstabilized clip. You can also change the framing options and rolling shutter reduction to if you are not aware what a rolling shutter means. Let me add some links to this video explaining them. Let's just preview this clip now. This is before. This is often you can try more effects by dragging and dropping onto the video clips. Play with the effect controls for each effect you're trying. Only that's how you can learn them all and get accustomed to this video of x. 9. Text and Graphics: When you want to add any text, our shapes to your video did switch to caption and graphics workspace. You will find the essential graphics panel on the right. Text panel on the left. Switch to the graphics tab and texts balance. Here you can use this type tool or press T on the keyboard and click anywhere on the program monitor to insert a Text. Red box will appear. Just type your text. Once done typing, don't click anywhere on the program monitor as it will create a new text box. Instead, press Escape or click on the Selection tool. If you have mistakenly added another text box, you can easily delete to select the anti-tax layers here, press Delete or right-click and select Clear. Another way to add text is to go to Edit under Essential Graphics. Click on this new layer button and select text. Not just text. You can also add shapes like a rectangle, ellipse, and polygon. Let's create a vertical text and a shape this way, go to essential graphics spanned, edit, then click on new layer button and select vertical text. You can create shapes using the dude box to click on this elliptical or rectangle tool. Then click Rectangle Tool, and then click and drag the cursor in the program monitor to create a rectangle. Similarly, you can add ellipse to. But when it comes to polygon, you can add it, but it will create a triangle like this. It's basically a three-sided polygon. To add more sides to this polygon, change this number of fields. Let me change it to five. Another interesting tool, the pen tool. This tool and make cliques in the program monitor to create your custom shapes. Instead of simply click at each point, you can click and hold each point to create a KOH instead of just straight lines. Once you're joined back to the starting point, the custom shape will be formed. Even after that, you can click and drag the points to alter the shape. Place you open along the lines. It will show plus sign. Then you can click here to add new points by holding Control key or command key, you can click on a joint to remote by holding the Alt key or Option key. If you just click on a code join, you can convert it to a strike joined. Whereas if you click and drag any joint by holding the d, then you can convert a strike joined into a code one. Similarly, you can use the pen tool to alter any shape that you have already added, such as rectangle, ellipse. Let me hide all other layers. Here is the ellipse. You can use the pen tool to change its shape. Pond selection tool to change at sites. Let's clear everything and add just a text on a rectangle shape. Click on the new layer button and select a rectangle. Repeat the strep text to move them to the center of the frame, hold Control key on the keyboard or command key on Mac. And select both the layers. Under alignment transform section, press the vertical center button and horizontal center button. Alternatively, take the selection tool. Hold the Control key or command key, and move the shapes or text within the frame. Premiere Pro will show you guidelines to align these shapes and ticks easily. Go, Let's make this rectangle a bit bigger and place it at the center here, again, align vertically, bottom and plane left, horizontally. Right buttons. They can be used to align individual layers within the frame, select the rectangle, loan, and press these alignment buttons to align it within the frame. But if you select multiple layers and use this alignment buttons, then it will align within those layers. For example, selecting both text and rectangle and clicking on a lying dog will align the text to the top of the rectangle. If not both of them to the top of the frame. Apart from this, you can change the position by either using the selection tool. You can use these fields. Similarly, you can scale or change the anchor point. Opacity, or width and height, or the rounded corners too. The last thing in Ireland and transformers, you can click on these five buttons alone to toggle animations. They are position, scale, anchor point, rotation, and opacity. You can also do this via the Effects Control Tab. Let's see it in action. Let me claim them correctly. Select both of them. Move the play head to the beginning, click on this position button to toggle position animation and scale button to toggle scale animation. Move them to the starting point. Now plays the play head near the end. Change the position and scale. Now let's see the preview of the animation. We created. This automatically grids keyframes for you. So you don't need to manually create them. Coming to the text section, you can see it Monday when you select a text layer, you can change the font family. Let me disable these layers so you can see it clearly. You can change bold italics to draw formed size. Alignment of the text using these alignment buttons increase character spacing. Folks bold, folks, italics. All caps, small caps, superscript, subscript, underline. Left to right typing or right-to-left coming to Appearance section, you can change the fill color enabled stroke, change its color and thickness. Shadow, change distance, shadow color, opacity, angle, size, blur. To show how this mask can be used, we need to move this shape layer in front of the text layer. Now, if we enable this mask, then this shape acts as mosque and the text will be visible only through this mosque. You can enable invert to invert the mask. Let me delete this new text layer. Watch this animated text layer I have created already. Let me show you how I did insert a text layer using the type tool and type your text. Press Escape. Once typed, click on the Selection tool. Change the font, family, type, and size like your desire. Move the play head to the beginning of the graphics. If you can't go exactly to the first frame of the graphics, zoom in into the timeline and place the play head approximately. Use the selection tool to place the text over the seawater. Some sports. Chance this way. Click on the Toggle position. It will create a keyframe in the Effects Control tab automatically. It will be shown as a circle to select or modify the diamond keyframe, expand text, and go to position. Now please the play head near the end of the graphics layer and move the text near the same vein. It will create another keyframe, automatically. Created a few more animated deaths. Now let me disable this newly created layer and let us see the proof. I shall add these videos used in this lesson as resources. I suggest to do them as a project work and submitted via the discussion board. If you face troubles uploading videos, either upload as G5 or upload your video to YouTube and post your video link. 10. Audio Editing Basics in Premiere Pro: Before learning to edit audio, you need to learn to see and understand all your files rather than hearing them. Audio file select voice and music or represented in waveforms in Premiere Pro. You can see there are two waveforms here on polio, track one and track two. Both audio tracks have the same audio clip. It's just that I have already removed all the pauses, silences from this clip in track one. Track two has the unedited audio clip with all pulses on silences. I would like to play them both to you separately. If I simply hit the play button, all the audio tracks in this sequence will play together, creating a sound mix. Let me mute audio track one by clicking on this M or mute button and play the unedited clip. First, I'm having practicing and teaching FU since the past decade or 100 thousand satisfied and successful students. So excited, dye now have the privilege of being your instructor for this course. You heard the short pauses and silences between sentences, right? Let's her the edited clip in truck one. Now, instead of meeting track to that is clicking on the mute button. We can also click on the solo or S button of the track you want to hear. So let's hit S on track one and hit Play. Having practicing and teaching SU since the past decade or 100 thousand satisfied and successful students. So excited, now have the privilege of being your instructor for this course. This sounds much faster than before. Since I cut the silences already, the audio clip on track one has lesser duration than the unedited clip contract too. If you want to edit audio on track to, but you don't want to mistakenly make edits to audio track one, then you can lock truck one by clicking on this lock button. Once locked, whatever you add it to the rest of the sequence, the locked track remains untouched. The purpose behind this playback is that I want you to notice the waveforms when you hear silences in the audio. These waveforms represent the volume or amplitude of sound. Sound is measured in decibels. In real life, 0 decibels is silent. Your normal conversations happen at 60 decibels and a gunshot at a 100 feet sounds like a 140 decibels. But here in Premier Pro, to the sound is measured in decibels. 0 dB, or 0 decibels is the maximum sound volume. And minus infinity dB is the lowest sound volume, or what we call as silence. For example, the audio levels for voice, usually you're in YouTube or set between minus six and minus 12 dB range. These levels are shown in the sound meter here, displays the instantaneous amplitude of the sound when you play the timeline. Let's go fullscreen off this time and panel to view bigger. Select the timeline panel and press Delete key on the keyboard. You can find this key, the bow, the Tab key on the keyboard. Let me increase the height of these drugs. If the waveform is higher, it denotes more amplitude, which means louder sound. Here, it will be near 0 dB. In Premiere Pro. If the waveform is lower, The denotes lower amplitude or sounds with lower volume or loudness. If the waveform is almost flat near the bottom, like this, then it denotes silence. Anything less than minus 30 decibels. You cannot cure much. Let me replace some of these silent ports of the waveforms. Now have the privilege. See none of these sections how wise or legible music in them. They are simply silences, are some low-level noise. If the audio has some background noise, then the waveforms won't go all the way to the bottom. But you will still be able to differentiate voices from noise as the wise or music that first recorded will normally how significantly higher volume. Than the background noise. To cut down these silent ports. You can use any of the editing techniques that we have discussed already. Let me show you one of them. Take the eraser tool or press C, make a cut at the beginning of the silence, and another cut at the end of the silence. Take the selection tool or press V, select this and press Delete. Once you have learned to understand and predict the audio by just looking at the waveforms, your editing will get faster. Let's exit the full-screen. Look at the sound meter. Once they start the playback. These lines in the song meter show the instantaneous dynamic peak amplitude. Practicing and teaching SEO. Since the past decade or 100 thousand satisfied and successful students. These bars show the aptitude range of the sound. So excited. Now have the privilege of being your instructor for this course. Amplitude is just the audio level and be constituted is the value of the highest amplitude in the clip. Generally, peak amplitudes don't loss clung to assist the peak amplitude easily. Right-click on the sound meter and select static peaks. Let's play once and check the peak amplitude of this clip. I've been practicing and teaching SU since the past decade or 100 thousand satisfied and successful students. On the other hand, if you would like to view the lowest amplitude, then right-click and select Show Values. Let's play it again and see how it shows the lowest attitude to have in practicing and teaching SEO since the past decade, or 100 thousand satisfied and successful students. So excited, now have the privilege of being your instructor for this course. Typically the sound meter shows 0 dB to minus 60 dB. If you're working with very low volume sounds, then you can change the range to when your peak amplitude goes beyond minus two decimals. As it nears 0 dB, the sound fidelity, we'll start reduce and there will be distortions in your audio. It will sound too harsh for your audience. So you need to reduce your audio levels such that it's not distorting, as well as increased the same. So it's audible enough. Loudness of your audio is measured in RMS amplitude. Here, autonomous means root, mean square. You don't need to dig deep into the armies. Just imagine it as overage amplitude or overage loudness. So if I tell you to keep your wise at minus six dB, minus 12 dB, then minus six dB here denotes the peak amplitude. And minus 12 db denotes the lowest amplitude. Since y's or music has highs and lows, it cannot be defined at the constant aptitude. But for this peak amplitude range, the RMS amplitude may come around minus nine dB. The ideal range of sound levels for voice is minus six dB, minus 12 dB. For background music, it is minus 18 db, two minus 20 dB. For sound effects, it is minus 12 db, two minus 18 db. Most of the time, your audio clips will either have one or two channels of audio. Single-channel audio clip is a monoclinic and it will have only one row of waveform, like this. Dual-channel AudioClip is a stereotype, and it will have two rows of waveform like this. If your sound is low, you might need to increase the loudness levels or audio gain to increase the volume. It can be done in three ways. Method one, select the clip, go to the Effect Controls panel, go to audio, then volume, and then increase the level. If you add five dB in the levels than the average volume will increase by five dB. It also increases the previous peak amplitude by five dB. Having practicing and teaching SQL method two, Let's play this clip. Can see the peak amplitude first in the sound meter. Or 100 thousand satisfied and successful students. Or 100 thousand satisfied and successful students. Let's adjust the gain by five dB. It should increase both autonomous and peak amplitude by phi TB. Let's play it again and check the peak amplitude, or 100 thousand satisfied and successful students. It has increased by five dB. Using this way, you can adjust the audio gain of multiple clips at once. Just select them. All right-click, go to Audio Gain and then adjust the game method3. Here we are going to adjust the audio level line. You can notice a horizontal line in each audio clip, right? It's the audio level. By default, it will be at 0 dB. 0 dB does not denote peak amplitude. The amount of volume we have added, whole reduced. If we increase it to plus five dB, means we have increased the gain by five dB. If you reduce it to minus five dB, then it means we have reduced the gain by five dB. If you want to silence a clip, instead of just deleting it, then just pull this audio level line all the way down to minus 999 dB. If you can't increase or decrease the line in any particular value, like five dB or 5.5 dB. Then hold Control key on keyboard in Windows, and Command key on Mac, and then adjust this line. Holding Control key or command key makes it easier for you to adjust to precise levels. 11. Adding Background Music: Adding background music lifts up the feel of your video. But when you sequence has both wise and background music, that's when you have some work to do. Uh, how added this background music to this talking head video? Let's play it once. The background music or BGN, it's so loud, I couldn't hear the voice clearly. I need to reduce the audio gain of background music. Typically, the wise should be ten to 12 decibels louder than background music. Let me click this solo button for the voice track. Uncheck the overage voice level, as well as peak amplitude in the sound meter. Having practicing and teaching since the past decade or a 100 thousand satisfied and successful students. And the peak amplitude is around minus 15 decibels. And the outrage seems to wander around minus 20 decibels. Let's check the volume levels of background music. Uncheck the solo of why strap and muted. Right-click on the sound meter and reset indicators. Note that I have selected static beaks. If you have selected dynamic peaks, the peak board will draw off for a second. So you don't need to reset indicators. Let's play it again. The peak amplitude of this initial part is around minus 15 decibels. But most of the time the sound meter boards fluctuated minus 18 decibels. That's where the RMS amplitude should be. There is a difference of around one to two disables between voice and background music. But to get a twelv decibel difference, Let's reduce the volume of background music by six decibels and increase the voice by six decimals. Click on the volume level line and the BGN, drag it down to reduce the volume level by six decibels. Remember, you can press and hold the Control key on Windows and Command key on Mac. To fine tune the adjustment, select all the y's flips, right-click and choose Audio Gain, just gained by six dB. And click OK, unmute all the trucks. Let me change to dynamic peaks in the sound meter. Here, both voice and be GM together. Having practicing and thinking. In suppose decade or a 100 thousand satisfied and success for students, it's much better now, if you would like to make the BGN even more subtle than you can reduce it by due to three decimals. If you want to quickly assess the peak and RMS amplitude, enable attract as solo, and just move the play head from start to end of the clip. You can notice the peak aptitude and average level in the sound meter. But instead of doing these processes manually, Premier Pro has an essential sound panel. We are which all these volume levels can be set in a few clicks. Go to audio workspace. Select all the voice clips. Choose dialogue, tag, click on Auto Match under loudness. This will automatically set the appropriate volume levels for your voice audio clips. Let's skim through the trach ones to see the volume levels. Well, it revolves around minus 12 decibels. Select the BGN, apply music tab, click on Auto Match under loudness. Initial silent part revolves around minus 27 decibels. And the later Bede's sound or minus 18 decibels. To bring the down. Let's increase the track height. Take the pen tool. Click on the BGN audio level line here to add the keyframe. Add one more key frame off for a second. Take the selection tool or press V and pull this down by nine to ten decibels. You can play the sequence, can't adjust it dynamically to automatically reduce the volume of background music wherever there's why's Premiere Pro has got a preset for that. Select the background music. Click the Clear audio type. Go to Presets music and select smooth vocal duckling. Now let me delete this audio clip here that you can see how the ducking walks when there is no voice clip here under this ducking section, click generate keyframes. Let's see the preview now. Having practicing and teaching SU since the past decade. So excited, dye now have the privilege of being your instructor for this course. Here the BGN extremes beyond our video track usually happens. You can dilute this in two ways. Method one, take the selection tool, go to the end of the background music clip and reduce it exactly to the length of your video. Then we can add a fade-out audio effects in the effects panel. Go to audio transitions, crossfade, drag, and drop this constant power audio effect to the end of the GM clip. Let's zoom in into the timeline. In Greece, the duration of this audio transition. Method two, premiere Pro has got a remix tool, which you can find in the dunes box. Take the tool and go to the end of the BGN, click and drag till the length of the video. Alternatively, let me undo it first. Taking the razor tool, I'm making a cut here. Let me delete the rest. Now, take the remix tool and expand background music to the length of the video. The remix tool cannot extend or reduce the length of the background music to the exact duration you need. But it can do it more or less of the which you can manually reduced the link like this and go to effects on your transitions. Crossfade, drag-and-drop, constant power audio transition. At the end. Your instructor for this course. For this course.
