Join Chris Meyer for an in-depth discussion in this video Copying clips from Premiere Pro to After Effects, part of Premiere Pro and After Effects: Creating Title Graphics.
I'm here in Adobe Premiere Pro and I have a couple of clips that I'd like to add…some nice lower third titles to.…Let's say I've decided to use Adobe After Effects to do this.…If my edit is already locked and I don't expect it to change, the most…efficient way to do this is to right click on a clip and choose Replace With…After Effects Composition.…Let's say the client hasn't seen this yet, I'm expecting some changes and I want…to keep my options open.…The best way to do that is to instead get the original unedited clips,…select them inside the Project panel and use Edit>Copy, Command+C on Mac, Ctrl+C on Windows.…
I'll then open After Effects, switch to it, make sure the Project panel is…selected and then Command+V or Ctrl+V to paste, and here I have my original…unedited full-length clips.…To turn these clips into compositions, I can just use the new Composition button…down at the bottom of the Project panel.…I'll select both clips and drag them down to that icon.…A dialog will open giving me two choices:…
- Copying clips from Premiere Pro to After Effects
- Creating a lower-third bar in After Effects
- Making shape layers with gradient fills
- Improving readability and re-using elements
- Combining layer styles and effects to enhance the final look
