Join Andy Needham for an in-depth discussion in this video Edit the sequence in Adobe Premiere, part of Compositing a Cell Phone in After Effects.
- [Voiceover] Let's use our footage to create…a rough edit for our promo.…Now, I'm gonna be a bit controversial and say…I like Final Cut Pro 10, I honestly do,…but I appreciate that most of you…will be using Premiere, or have access to it…through Creative Cloud,…so I'll be showing you how to edit this sequence there.…So we've got Premiere open, let's get our footage in,…and build the edit.…When using Premiere, I like to change the keyboard shortcuts…to the Final Cut Pro 7,…so I'll just make sure that they're set up that way,…and choose "OK",…and then I'll import the footage into Premiere.…
We'll just click into the project panel here,…and choose Command + I,…and we'll navigate to where the footage is…in our exercise files,…and without anything selected,…I'm just gonna choose import,…and that will import all the files into a new bin.…I'm just gonna change the view to be list view…and then I can use this arrow to drop down…and I can see all my footage here.…So we have the stock footage,…and the footage of the phone.…
Here, Andy Needham shows how to take the app mockup created in the companion course, After Effects: Creating a Mobile App Interface, and composite it into live-action footage of a smartphone. The final product is an animated promo video that helps visualize how the app will be used on a real device. Andy also covers storyboarding, tracking, keying, color correction, and a few audio tips. By the end of the course, you'll have more experience with the screen replacement workflow in After Effects and have a web-ready deliverable ready to share with the world.
