Tutorial 3 adobe premier pro

  1. 1. SEGI University College – Kota Damansara 1TUTORIAL 3Highlight Part of an Image in PremiereThis page demonstrates the use of keying to highlight part of an image in avideo. The goal is to darken the whole frame except for the area we want tohighlight. This effect is often used to identify one subject in an image containingmultiple subjects, as per the example on the right.Instructions 1. Place the video clip on the timeline. 2. With the Current Time Indicator over the clip, create a new title. 3. Select Show Video so you can see the clip below the title. 4. Using one of the titlers shape tools, create a shape to become the highlight area. Our example uses an ellipse. 5. In the Title Properties window, set the Fill colour to pure blue (hex colour 0000FF).Prepared by: Fuad Afiq Misbahulmunir

This will become the darkened area. 7. Right-click the shape and select Arrange > Send to Back. This places the rectangle behind the highlight shape.Prepared by: Fuad Afiq Misbahulmunir

Adjust the opacity of the title until the dark area has the right amount of transparency (about 50% should be okay — you can tweak it later). 9. Apply the Color Key effect to the title (Effects > Video Effects > Keying). 10. Select pure blue (0000FF) as the key colour. 11. Adjust the Color Tolerance, Edge Thin and Edge Feather until the highlight looks right. The example settings shown here should work in most situations. 12. If necessary, fine-tune the shape and opacity of the highlight.Prepared by: Fuad Afiq Misbahulmunir

SEGI University College – Kota Damansara 4Ghost EffectCreating a ghost effect for video is quite simple, as long as you have an editingpackage capable of using layers and setting layer opacity.First of all, set the camera up on a tripod and frame the shot. Shoot the sceneempty (without the ghost), then shoot the scene again with the ghost actor. Itsvery important that both versions (takes) of the shot are framed identically, sodont move the camera at all. The background also needs to be still.Import both takes of the shot into your Adobe Premiere. Place the empty shot onthe first video track and the ghost shot on the next track.Set the opacity of the ghost shot to around 30%, or whatever setting achieves thebest result.Prepared by: Fuad Afiq Misbahulmunir

Thistechnique is commonly used to blur a face in order to protect the subjectsidentity.This technique uses two video tracks, and can be used with any editingapplication which supports multiple tracks/layers.To begin, place the video clip on the timeline. Make an exact copy of the clip andplace it on a video track directly above the original clip like so:From the effects palette, add a blur or pixelate effect to the top track. Set theamount of blur as desired. The example above uses a gaussian blur (VideoEffects > Blur & Sharpen > Gaussian Blur) set to 27.At this stage the entire image on the top track is blurred (or pixelated). To bluronly the face, add a crop filter (Video Effects > Transform > Crop) to thePrepared by: Fuad Afiq Misbahulmunir

Adjust the crop parameters (left, top, right, bottom) until only theblurred face remains.The screenshot on the right shows the effects we have added: Gaussian Blurand Crop. Note: If the face (or whatever you are blurring) moves around a lot, there are two options: 1. Make the blurred area big enough to accommodate the movement. 2. Use keyframes to animate the crop effect.Prepared by: Fuad Afiq Misbahulmunir
