Meet Adobe Premiere Pro, and learn the skills necessary to professionally edit video. Abba Shapiro first introduces a "fast track" approach to Premiere that shows the entire import to output process in eight quick steps—ideal as an overview for new editors and a preview of the new features in CC that experienced users will want to see right off the bat. Then transition to the expanded workflow that begins with importing media, creating a basic rough edit, and then refining the cut with music and sound effects, transitions, visual effects, and titles. The course also includes information on exporting and archiving projects, as well as advice for becoming more efficient in Premiere with actions, keyboard shortcuts, and other workflow enhancing tricks.
We learn that we can bring Photoshop documents in either flattened or with their layers as a sequence. Now, that's exactly what I've done here. I brought in the logo. And if I click on the folder that was created when I import it, I can see all the element that I have to work with. It's actually five layers. The four parts of the logo and the artist actually gave me a complete logo. If I want to work with this Premiere created a sequence with all of these layers properly positioned.
All I have to do is grab that sequence and drop it into my existing sequence. And I don't want to change the Sequence Settings because I want it to match the sequence of the rest of my video clips. So, I'm going to say Keep Existing Settings and if I put my cursor over it, I can see it says, Delight gluten free magazine. But I want to animate this. So, the trick is to step inside of the graphic and I can do that simply by double-clicking on the graphic. And now, I have a second tab open with all the contents.
Let me go ahead and bring this down to the bottom because I want you to be able to see all of these elements. I'm going to hit the Backslash key, and there we go. We have our big background with it combined, which I don't want to use. So, I'm going to go ahead and turn that off. And now, I have the four different layers that I might want to animate. And if I turn these off and turn them on one at a time, you can see what I have. So, the top one is the magazine and the artist should have labelled this magazine but we can work with it anyway or we could change it if we wanted to.
The next one is Delightful Food, Delightful Fun, Gluten Free, and of course, the logo of the magazine. So, I can take these images and animate them. For instance I want Delight to be the primary thing the viewer sees. So, I'm just going to go ahead and grab the other elements and slide them over so they don't even appear in my timeline until I'm ready for them. Now, I want the word delight to animate in. I want it to be in by about one second, so I'm going to place my cursor at one second, load this layer into my Source window.
Go to Effects Control and under Motion I'm going to lock in the position and the scale. Now, I can simply go back to the beginning. If I want to work with this, the easiest way to do that is to click on the motion wire frame. And now, I can grab the word delight and drag it off screen to the position where I want it to start entering my frame. Once I have that done, I can decide how I want these elements to come in.
I think I'm going to take the Magazine element, which was our top layer. And again, I want to go to where I want it to settle. I have it loaded in. Go to the Effects Control, click on Motion > Position and Scale perfect. And then, I go back to the beginning of that clip where it's off screen. And in this case, I just want it to float up straight from the bottom. So, I'm going to just drag it straight down. Now, if you can't grab it because it's a layer that's behind the top layer, just again, go ahead. Click on that little box, grab magazine, and we will bring it down so it's directly off screen.
So, one's going to fly in. The other's going to fly in. And then, the last two areas, the words gluten free and their little catch phrase at the bottom, I think we'll just have those fade on. So, let me right-click. I'll apply the default cross-dissolve. If I feel its a little bit long at 30 frames, which I think it will be. I can notch this down to 15. And we've learned many ways to do this in an earlier video. And let's take a look at the final animation.
Well, it happens a little fast for my taste, but that's okay because I can always readjust my timing as we learned in an earlier video. What's really nice about this is if I go back to the timeline, this appears as a giant clip, and I can put it over anything I want and still have that animation. So, as you see, animating a layered Photoshop document is very quick and easy and can raise your video to new heights.
