Homework Part One: Basic Video Editing Techniques Project
This project highlights the use of various keyboard shortcuts and editing techniques that we have not yet learned and adds to your video editing knowledge and skills. Watch all the videos below and complete the steps in the project file provided.
Understand the workspace
For this first video you simply watch to get a review of the Premiere Pro workspace. There is nothing to import yet.
Start with the basics
Download the start files and unpack them to your desktop. Click on the project file "GS-PR Section 2 Start.prproj". Then follow the steps in the movie. Note: Your results will not be the exact same as in the movie but you need to complete the steps in this movie. This includes adding and re-ordering 19 different video clips and 1 audio clip to the Sequence window and adjusting the audio to match the video as shown around minute 9:30. Then insert the transitions shown in the video.
At this point choose Save As and save your Premiere movie as lastname_class11.pproj into the video_project folder on your desktop.
Add titles and graphics
In this video you will create onscreen titles in Premiere Pro and Photoshop and add them to this project.
NOTE: Choose File> New Legacy Title to create the new Title, then follow the steps shown in the video.
Click Save when finished with this section.
Expand your editing skills
Learn shortcuts for cutting, moving, and stretching clips in the Timeline. Watch how the author uses these tools. Make sure to apply Ripple Edit, Stylize and Lumetri adjustments somewhere within your video as per the video. Click Save when finished with this section.
Work with audio
Polish your soundtrack by adding transitions, adjusting levels, and using customizable audio effects or convenient presets. Make sure to apply the Underwater Effect to your project as shown in the video. Click Save when finished with this section.
Export your completed video
This video demonstrates how you can easily publish using an array of standard video formats including Vimeo, YouTube, and more. You can also use the Adobe Media Encoder queue, which lets you continue to work in Premiere Pro as your video encodes in the background. In this case stop the movie at 1:22 and review the instructions below.
- If you haven't already done so, save your Premiere movie as lastname_class11.pproj into the folder on your desktop
At 1:24 in the video above select> Export> Media
- In the Export Settings Dialog box select Format> H.264 and then Preset> Match Size Medium Bitrate. This will create a file around 30 MB. If your file is much bigger than this, you need to check your settings.
- In the Output Name field click on the underlined text and save as lastname_class11.mp4
- Now click Export at the bottom of this Export Settings dialog box.
- Exit Premiere
- Click on the Submit Assignment Button at the top of the Assignment page.
- Click the Choose File button and select your lastname_class11.mp4 file then click Open
- Click the Submit Assignment button.
