Video: Combining multiple effects

It's obviously very easy to put a single effect on a single clip. But you can also put multiple filters or multiple effects on a single clip to get a whole different look or a whole different feel. And you'll find you'll be doing this often. Let's go back to the barbeque pizza still image and tweak that a little bit. The color's nice but I really want the focus for the viewer not to be on the pizza, I want it to be on the logo. So I'm going to go ahead and select the barbecue pizza, and I'm want to put a little bit of a blur on that image.

Combining multiple effects

It's obviously very easy to put a single effect on a single clip. But you can also put multiple filters or multiple effects on a single clip to get a whole different look or a whole different feel. And you'll find you'll be doing this often. Let's go back to the barbeque pizza still image and tweak that a little bit. The color's nice but I really want the focus for the viewer not to be on the pizza, I want it to be on the logo. So I'm going to go ahead and select the barbecue pizza, and I'm want to put a little bit of a blur on that image.

So I'm going to use one of my blur filters. And once again I'll type in the word blur and I'll see all of the different effects are blur filters that are available under the blur and sharpen folder. Now I really like the Gausian blur it works very quickly it does exactly what I want. So I'm going to go ahead and this time I'm going to just drag it and drop it directly on the barbecue pizza clip. And it appears as if nothing has happened. Well, by default, there is no blur in the blur filter until I bring it in.

And if you look over in the effects control tab, we can see that there is a blurriness slider. And once again, I'm going to hit the disclosure triangle to show you that. In this case I have about 50 choices, and I can be really pretty subtle, or go kind of crazy on how blurry this is going to become. Now initially I'm going to make this kind of crazy, cause I want to point out a really useful check box. If you look at the edges of this blur, it actually starts to get darker a vignette.

And that's because it's not just blurring the image of the pizza, but the black outside the frame, and this could be problematic in many cases, but in the case of Premiere Pro. All I have to do is go down to the blur filter and there's a little check box that says repeat the edge pixels. All I have to do is go down to the blur filter and there's a little check box that says repeat the edge pixels. All I have to do is go down to the blur filter and there's a little check box that says repeat the edge pixels. And as soon as I click on that, you'll notice I have a nice, clean edge. Something to keep in mind when using any filter that blurs or feathers. If you're going to an edge, take a look and see if it has this option.

Not all filters will have it, but if it does, it's something you might want to try out. So let's pull back the blurriness a little bit. Just enough so that we can tell it's a pizza, but our eyes are naturally drawn to the sharpest part of the image and that's our logo. So as you see there I can work with two filters at once. Now its not such a perfect world because in the case of these two filters, it doesn't matter what order I put the filters on the clip, because the blur and the gamma don't directly affect each other.

Let's hop back to the earlier clip. To the first clip in our timeline. Put a few filters on this clip. And I'm going to show you how drastically different the outcome could be. Depending on the order that you place the filters on the clip. Now, let's remove the black and white element, and we learned we could turn this off. Now if I click on the clip, it's going to load that clip into the Effects control panel, an there's my black and white element. If I wanted not to see it, I could turn it off, but I really want to remove it.

So, I could select it and press the Delete key or right click cut the filter out of that clip. So now we're back to our original clip and we're going to go ahead and put three filters on here. We're going to blur the image maybe I'll age it a little bit with color look and I want to put some sort of a border around it, I have a bevel available to me. Not my favorite filter, but very effective in teaching. So let's go ahead and put that bevel on first.

And what the bevel's going to do, it's going to put a kind of three-dimensional look to our image, make sure you grab bevel edges and not bevel alpha, because that works very differently and you won't see any change if you play with the sliders. So I'm going to drop bevel edges on this clip, and there's the default. Make sure that it's loaded back into your effects control tab, and I can modify many aspects of this. The edge thickness is the big one. Just want to bring this down a little bit, I don't want it to be that pronounced.

I can move the angle of where the light's coming from, from the bottom or the top, so it's going to have some areas that are lighter and darker. I could change the color as a matter of fact let's go ahead and change the color. I could pick a color here that's a nice blue edge let's make it a little bit lighter, press OK. So now I have a nice blue edge kind of matches her dress if I wanted it to match her dress exactly I could go grab the eye dropper. Select one of the blue areas of the dress. And now it's a pretty close match.

And the hue to the dress that she's wearing. And I could if I wanted to focus how much light is hitting this brighter or darker. Ad that becomes a more flattened looking image because there's not a lot of light. But let's make it pretty pronounced. So I have this lovely bevel. And I want to age this image. And I want to soften it a little bit. So, let me go ahead and throw a (INAUDIBLE) look on it. Now there's a (INAUDIBLE) filter but I actually like the filters in the lumetri looks a lot more. So let's examine those for a moment.

I'm going to open those up and press the Tilde key, so we can see it full screen. Now as you see there's nothing on my screen, I did this intentionally because. This happens to me a lot and I'm guaranteeing it's going to happen to you. You'll open up a folder looking for something and it will be empty and you'll panic. Don't panic, two things you should realize; one, you might have started typing in some letters from a previous filter you were looking for. Now if I click that and I open up the looks, I'm in much better shape.

The other thing is you might have pressed one of these buttons and turned off a filter. So, make sure those are all activated. So there's a variety of looks here, and these are all one trick ponies. You can't modify any parameters. But there are some that I like and, one that I really like is under style, and that's called back in the day. To me that's a nicer sepia than the default sepia tone that I can work with. Let's press the Tilde key and apply this to our clip. So I can go and double-click on it or drag it.

I will double-click to Apply it. And as you see we now have our sepia. So, it looks a little bit older. And I want it to be a little bit softer, so finally we're going to go ahead and put the gaussian blur on. So I'll simply type blur, scroll down. Find my gaussian blur, drop it on. It appears over here in the left hand side. And I'm going to up the blurriness and repeat my edge pixels. So I have the perfect image, right? Absolutely not, I've destroyed my intent by putting these filters in in the wrong order.

Now, if you've done this don't panic. You can rearrange these very easily. By simply grabbing them by their name and moving them up and down. You can do this either with the filter open or if it's easier to things you can close each of the filters so you can just see their precise order. Well, I think I want the back in the day, my sepia to happen before my beveled edges because I lost the blue that was around the edge of the screen.

So that's getting better, and I know I overshot on the blur and I'll pull that back no matter what. But if I put that blur on last I'm losing the sharpness of the bevel effect. So that also has to happen before we put the bevel edges on. Now it doesn't matter in this case. Whether I put it after, back in the day or before, because these effects really don't interfere with each other because one's dealing with color and one's dealing with focus. And I'm going to go down here and open up the gaussian blur and pull it back a little bit, just so that the image looks a little bit sharper, a little bit less high def Than it was originally shot. So putting multiple filters on a singe clip is easy to do. Just make sure that you order them in the proper way to get the look that you want.

Q: What happens when Premiere Pro auto-saves one of my projects? How do I restore an auto-saved project?
A: When a new project is created, Auto Save is enabled by default. The editor can choose where they want their auto-saved files to be stored, using the Project Auto Save dropdown in the New Project dialog. By default they will be saved in the same location as the project files. To restore one of these auto-save files, simply open it in Premiere Pro.
 
The auto-save frequency (in minutes) can be set in Preferences. Premiere Pro CC also auto-saves the project upon detecting changes to the file. If the system goes idle for a period beyond the interval setting, no further auto-saves are triggered until Premiere Pro detects another change.
