            10 PRO TIPS & TRICKS for PREMIERE PRO

10 advanced Premiere Pro tips

that I've been constantly using during my Iceland editing project. And we’re gonna kick it off with tip number

1!You've just made an animation on a clip and now you'd like to time remap that. But unfortunately, that will break your animation. So make a habit of it to always create an adjustment layer, apply the Transform effect to it and use that for all your animations. You can now change anything you like from the clip below while retaining your animation. You could even swap the clip with a different shot or move that adjustment layer to a different spot. Another big advantage of doing this is when you've masked out an object. If you would animate that layer directly, the content within that mask would change, but not the mask itself. Sometimes that is what you want, but if you don't want that, use an adjustment layer! Tip number

2! You've got yourself a white text onto a dark background-clip and you'd like to fade it in. What we usually do is apply a cross dissolve, but that doesn't really create a smooth fade-in, as your white text reveals itself too quickly. Solution, animate the Opacity from 0 to 100. But make sure to right-click on the first keyframe and choose Ease Out. Then expand the Opacity property and pull on the lever of that keyframe to create an exponential curve, which will make your fade-in animation look a whole lot better.

Tip 3, you'd like to work in a different aspect ratio. You could add an adjustment layer on top of your edit and crop a piece off the top and the bottom. But that leaves you with black bars, which is annoying on ultra-wide screens. So, you might wanna change your sequence settings to a wider resolution. But then we're having the problem that when you're gonna animate your clips using that adjustment layer technique, that you can't really move your clips up and down anymore. Solution: work in a normal 16:9 resolution. But on the top of my edit, I'm going to place a PNG image that has black bears in the same aspect ratio that I want to finalize in. This does allow me to move the clips up and down with the adjustment layer. Now, when my edit is done, I create a new sequence in the correct resolution and drag my main sequence in there. This is the sequence that we'll use to render out our video, giving a true widescreen experience.


Tip 4! It's not always so easy to find the right sound effects to go with your edit.Now, Audioblocks is one library where you can find such sound effects.They are sponsoring us today, but it’s a library that I genuinely use myself. Definitely for sound effects.Basically, you can pay a single price per year which allows you to download unlimited sound effects, ambients, music as well,loops and so much more.You can click the first link in the description below for more information.Now, I was looking for a swoosh sound effect, but couldn't really find the right tone.So I just picked one out that came close.In Premiere Pro I would then use the Rate Stretch toolto change the pitch of that swoosh and make it fit with the speed of my transition.


Tip 5! You've got yourself a nice movement in your shot,but it goes pretty slow.So by doing some simple time remapping you can speed up that movement.Unfortunately, it doesn't really look quite natural as it's missing motion blur.So, add an adjustment layer on the top of that clipand apply the Directional Blur effect to it.Animate the Blur Length as the camera movement speeds upand change the direction accordingly.


Number 6, if you have a bunch of clips in your Project Panelist could get annoying to see which clip you've already used and which you didn’t. Sure, there's this indicator,but wouldn't it be nice if you could just hide the clips from the Project Panel? Well, you can!Simply right-click on any clip and choose Hide.Now, I would recommend setting a short key for thatso that you can hide and unhide clips faster. If you would like to see the hidden clips,you could also find that in the menu by right-clicking in your Project Panel. Now, what about the clips that contain multiple useable shots.For example, drone shots where you let the camera roll the entire flight.Well, tip number


7: you can divide those clips pretty easy.Open them up in your source monitor,set an IN and OUT point around the action that you wanna use and then drag that clip back to your Project Panel.You can do this multiple times and take different actions from it, leaving you with multiple clips in your Project window.Then, after you've used one of those actions in your edit,you can simply hide it like we've seen before.Tip number

8, you've just come across a very nice shot,but it appears later in one of your clips.The thumbnail of that clip doesn’t show that particular action.So what I can simply do is add an IN point to the clip from that action.Premiere Pro will then update the thumbnail from your IN point.And I actually do this very often when I come across clips that I don't need immediately, but I also don't wanna miss that shot later down my edit.Tip number

9! If you like a sun flare or light leak to appear on just the right spot, you can create one yourself very easy.Make a new Color Solid and choose something like orange.Put that on top of your edit and create a mask on itthat fits right around the elements of your shot.Finally, make sure to feather that mask as well,and change the Blending Mode to Screen.You can then go further and animate the opacity or even the mask path to organically move your lens flare.

Tip number 10, when making a transition between two clips, it can still be pretty harsh even though you've made a smooth animation. Usually, that is because of the difference in color or exposure.So, what I usually do is use Lumetri on your first clip to animate the exposure.You don't wanna go completely dark, but just let it fade a little bit.And you could do the same thing with the temperature control.If your next shot is warm sunset, then maybe animate the temperature going to orange a little bit.This small touch will make your transition go a ton smoother. And those were my 10 advanced Premiere Pro tips, which are helping me a lot during my Iceland project.I hope that you've learned some new insights,thank you so much.
