  1. Chapter 1 Creating a Video Montage in Adobe Premiere CS6

  2. Creating a New Project and Exploring the Workspace • The application window is the main window comprised of various panels. • The arrangement of panels in the application window is known as the workspace. • The default workspace is called Editing.

  3. Creating a New Project and Exploring the Workspace Menu bar Program Monitor Source Monitor Audio Mixer panel Effects Control panel Project panel Media Browser panel Sequence Editing Workspace Zoom controls Timeline Tools panel

  4. Creating a New Project and Exploring the Workspace • Panels can be moved by clicking and dragging the panel tabs. • As you drag a panel, an area becomes highlighted; this is called the drop zone. • A custom workspace is one that has been created by the user and is saved with a unique name.

  5. Creating a New Project and Exploring the Workspace Drop Zone Moving panels in the workspace

  6. Creating a New Project and Exploring the Workspace • The Project panel organizes all the assets for your project. • Digital assets can include video clips, digital images, and audio clips. • The Timeline panel is where you assemble assets and edit them.

  7. Creating a New Project and Exploring the Workspace • The Source Monitor is used to preview assets from the Project panel or the Media Browser before you place them in a sequence. • The Program Monitor displays the contents of the Timeline—your project in progress.

  8. Creating a New Project and Exploring the Workspace • The New Project dialog box opens up when you create a new project. It has two tabs: • General tab is where you adjust settings regarding safe margins and video/audio formats. • Scratch Disks tab provides settings for a variety of files associated with the video editing process including where they are stored.

  10. Creating a New Project and Exploring the Workspace • A sequenceis where the digital assets are placed and edited. At least one sequence is required in a Premiere Pro project, which is why you are prompted to create one when beginning a project. • The New Project dialog box opens up when you create a new project.

  11. Creating a New Project and Exploring the Workspace • The New Sequence dialog box has three tabs: • Sequence Presets • Settings • Tracks

  12. Creating a New Project and Exploring the Workspace New Sequence dialog box

  13. Creating a New Project and Exploring the Workspace • The Sequence presets tab has a number of categories of sequence settings for commonly used capture devices. • It is recommended that you choose the preset that matches the settings for your device if it is available.

  14. Creating a New Project and Exploring the Workspace • The Settings tab is available to customize settings if there is not a preset available for your device. • It is recommended that you use the preset that is the closest match to your device and continue with any necessary customizations on the Settings tab.

  15. Creating a New Project and Exploring the Workspace • The Tracks tab allows you to indicate how many video and audio tracks will be added when the sequence is created; by default, three video tracks and three stereo audio tracks are created. • Tracks can be added or deleted later.

  16. Importing Assets • A Premiere Pro CS6 project is a single file that stores all references to digital assets used in the project. • Digital assets may include video, audio, still images, and Photoshop and Illustrator files.

  17. Importing Assets • A project file also contains sequences (or timelines); these are where the digital assets are placed and edited. • Video projects characteristically take up a lot of memory so to help keep the file size down, Premiere Pro creates reference files that point to the original files being imported.

  18. Importing Assets • The Project panel is your “file cabinet” of assets. • You can create bins to help organize your Project panel. • Bins may contain assets, sequences, or other bins.

  20. Importing Assets • The Media Browser provides a convenient way to locate, sort, preview, and import assets that you plan to use in your Premiere Pro project. • It also provides access to the assets that you are using while you edit.

  21. Importing Assets Media Browser Computer directory Folders and Files

  22. Importing Assets • Storyboarding is a way to plan your video by placing clips or digital assets in the order you plan to have them play. • Icon view shows thumbnails, which are smaller versions of the digital assets you imported.

  24. Working with the Timeline Panel and Sequences • A sequence is located in the Timeline panel and is where most editing takes place. • Adobe Premiere Pro can have multiple sequences and you can place sequences inside other sequences to break your project up into manageable pieces.

  25. Working with the Timeline Panel and Sequences • Sequences are comprised of video and audio tracks. • Tracks are where the clips are assembled, edited, and enhanced with effects and transitions.

  26. Working with the Timeline Panel and Sequences • A sequence can consist of multiple audio and video tracks, but must contain at least one of each. • Multiple tracks are used to blend clips together.

  27. Working with the Timeline Panel and Sequences • The Timeline panel includes the following features: • Time Ruler • Current-time display • Play head and Current-time Indicator (CTI) • Work area bar • Horizontal Zoom bar

  28. Working with the Timeline Panel and Sequences Current-time display Playhead and Current-time Indicator Timeline ruler Video tracks Work area bar Audio tracks Timeline panel Horizontal Zoom bar

  29. Working with the Timeline Panel and Sequences • The Time ruler measures the time in the sequence horizontally. • Icons for markers and In and Out points are also displayed here.

  30. Working with the Timeline Panel and Sequences • The Current-time display shows the timecode for the current frame. • Timecodesmark specific frames with unique addresses and are recorded onto videotape during the recording process.

  31. Working with the Timeline Panel and Sequences • The Current-time Indicator (CTI)indicates the current frame displayed in the Program Monitor. • The CTI is a light gold triangle in the Time ruler with a vertical red line extending through the video and audio tracks.

  32. Working with the Timeline Panel and Sequences • The CTI can be moved by clicking and dragging on the gold triangle. • This can also be used as a preview method, referred to as scrubbing.

  33. Working with the Timeline Panel and Sequences • The work area bar indicates the area of the sequence that you want to preview or export. • The brackets on either end, located just below the Time ruler, are adjustable so you can export portions of a large project for preview.

  34. Working with the Timeline Panel and Sequences • The horizontal zoom bar is the area that corresponds with the visible portion of the Timeline panel and allows you to quickly move to different parts of the sequence.

  35. Working with the Timeline Panel and Sequences • The ends of the horizontal zoom bar can be used to increase or decrease the number of visible frames in the viewing area. • The horizontal zoom bar allows you to adjust the range of time being viewed in the Timeline panel.

  36. Working with the Timeline Panel and Sequences • To add clips to a sequence on the Timeline panel, simply drag the clip from the Project panel to the sequence. • If it is an audio clip it needs to be placed on an audio track; all other clips are placed on video tracks.

  37. Working with the Timeline Panel and Sequences • You are also able to add clips to a sequence while previewing them on the Source Monitor. • You can either drag an image from the Source Monitor to a track, or use the Insert button or the Overwrite button on the Source Monitor to place the clip on the sequence.

  38. Working with the Timeline Panel and Sequences • Premiere Pro has a command that lets you place images from a storyboard on a sequence in the order that they were organized. This feature is called Automate to Sequence.

  39. Working with the Timeline Panel and Sequences Ordering Automate To Sequence dialog box

  40. Working with the Timeline Panel and Sequences • The Selection tool: • is used to select menu items and objects in the Premiere Pro workspace. • is used for selecting clips in a sequence and in the project.

  41. Working with the Timeline Panel and Sequences All tracks to the right are selected, including scenic15.jpg Track Select tool Automate To Sequence dialog box

  42. Working with the Timeline Panel and Sequences • The Ripple Delete command removes a clip from the sequence without leaving any gaps if the clip being removed is located between two other clips.

  43. Working with the Timeline Panel and Sequences • The Program Monitor plays back the clips you are assembling in the active sequence on the Timeline panel for you to preview.

  44. Applying Video Transitions • A transition is used to move from one clip to the next in your sequence. • Transitions can add additional interest to your video and can be as simple as phasing out one image and phasing in another.

  45. Applying Video Transitions • After you find the transition you want to apply on the Effects panel, simply drag the transition to the vertical line between two clips, known as the cut line, and release the mouse button. • By default, the transition is placed centered on the cut, which is the space between two clips.

  46. Applying Video Transitions • You can place or align the transition in one of three ways: Center at Cut, End at Cut, or Start at Cut. By default, the transition is placed centered on the cut, which is the space between two clips.

  47. Applying Video Transitions Three alignment options for placing a transition End at Cut icon Center at Cut icon Start at Cut icon

  48. Applying Video Transitions • When working with transitions, it is a good idea to change to the Effects workspace. • Different options are available on the Effect Controls panel for each transition.

  49. Applying Video Transitions • Some transitions have edge selectors, which are arrows that change the orientation or direction of a transition. • Start and End sliders can be changed with the three alignment settings.

  50. Applying Video Transitions • The Show Actual Sources setting displays the starting and ending frames of the clips. • The Border Width setting adjusts the width of the optional border on the transition. The default border width setting is 0.0.
