Hour 11. Creating Video Effects

Premiere's video effects give you more ways than you can imagine to jazz up your video and dazzle viewers. You can put clips in motion, distort them, shrink them, fly them across other clips, and change their color, style, and overall appearance.

You can apply these effects?video and audio?gradually over time or immediately. You can combine effects. For instance, you can "posterize" a clip, flip it around, and fly it off screen. It's a cliché, but it applies?the only limit is your imagination.

The highlights of this hour include the following:

  • A brief introduction to video effects

  • Using keyframes to change audio and video effects over time

  • Applying motion and changing clip shapes
