In Premiere Pro CS5 Essential Training, author Chad Perkins shows not only how to edit video with Premiere Pro, but he also explains how to use video to tell compelling stories. This course covers the Premiere Pro workflow from a high level, providing a background on how projects go from start to finish before diving into basic clip adjustments, such as color correcting scenes for more dramatic impact, applying transitions effectively, and slowing down and speeding up clip playback. The course includes creative techniques, such as making titles and removing a green screen background from a shot. Exercise files are included with the course.
In this chapter we're going to take a look at compositing. Another word for compositing is combining. Basically, it's the process of combining multiple elements into the same scene. So in this case we have this background here and I've combined some green screen footage and this is very common and we'll talk about what the deal is with this whole green thing in the next movie. What I did is I added the garbage matte, which I've talked about how to do, and then I added the new effect called Ultra Key, which we'll look at in the next movie, which as you could see pretty clearly remove this green screen.
Then I edit a few color adjustments, which we'll look at in the next chapter. And basically made it so that he looks like he belongs more in the same scene with the background and I added another video clip and made it so it is about the same size as the monitor in the background, and here we have our composite. So, this is the art of compositing, taking multiple elements combining them together in the same scene. Premiere is not a powerhouse at this. If you want some real power over compositing you want to go over to something like Adobe After Effects, but still there are some tools in here that if you're in a pinch and you need to pull things together like this, Premiere can get the job done.
