- In this chapter, we'll create a short trailer…for a vintage cars festival and we're going to do it…using both Photoshop and Premier Pro.…This will include 3D objects, 3D titles…and even 3D transitions.…Now the cool fact here is that these days…even if you have zero 3D experience,…you can still create amazing graphics fast and easy…and I'm going to prove this claim right here, right now.…So, we'll start with PixelSquid which will allow you…to work with pre-made 3D models using a free plugin…that runs under Photoshop CC.…
Here, let me show you how this works.…So, I'm going to start by selecting this 1 Photoshop 3D file…inside the Project banner and then I'm going to go…to the File menu and from the New command,…I'm going to create a new temporary Photoshop file…which will help me to illustrate how to work with those…3D objects that will come from the PixelSquid website.…So, let's choose command.…Here you can set your video settings.…
I'm going to stick with 1920 x 1080 on a time base…of 24 frame per second and, of course, square pixels.…
This course works through real-world scenarios, showcasing impressive type effects used to create visually stunning scenes. To make type integrate seamlessly with the footage, Eran demonstrates how to use tracking, rotoscoping, particles, distortions, camera effects, and more. Compositing is performed in Premiere Pro as the main editing hub. In addition to Photoshop and After Effects, the course also explores a PixelSquid plugin, a Bounce Pack set of transitions, ReelSmart Motion Blur, a Continuum Complete set of 3D objects, and some text design templates of Titler Pro 4. These third-party plugins are introduced to complement your workflow while keeping time spent outside the editing interface minimal. This course is designed to equip you with the skills needed to create promos, trailers, and openers that exhibit superb use of 3D titles.
