Join Maxim Jago for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding rough graphics, part of EPK Editing: 2 Creative Editing and Fine-Tuning.
…As you're working on your sequence, it's quite possible you're going to want to…put in some holding graphics, some little temporary clips to use for estimating…timing and positioning and so on, while you wait for the finished versions.…Now, it doesn't really matter whether you're the person making those graphics or…whether somebody else is.…The principle is very much the same, and it's still very useful.…I have a couple of ways here of showing you how to make those graphics.…You can use the titles inside of Premier Pro of course, just go…to the New Item button and choose Title or go to File, choose New Title, go to Title.…There's lots of way of making a new title inside of Premier Pro.…But what I really want to show you is working with PSD files, and…there's just a little gotcha I'd like to show you.…First of all, I'm going to make a new bin that I'll call graphics.…We're going to need one of those anyway.…And remember, it's good to create the organizational system before you need it.…So there we go, I've got a Graphics bin.…
In the previous installment of EPK Editing Workflows, Maxim Jago showed you how to ingest media and build a basic assembly edit from your favorite shots. Here you'll take that rough cut and fine-tune it using a number of industry-standard trimming techniques that work in just about every nonlinear editing system. You'll learn how to take your edited sequence from an assembly to a precise cut, with temporary effects and transitions that will help you nail down the final visual look of your video.
- Establishing the starting point
- Stripping out content from the assembly cut
- Editing quickly with keyboard shortcuts
- Advanced trimming techniques
- Trimming with the JKL technique
- Adding placeholder transitions and effects
- Achieving picture lock
