CreativeCOW presents Premiere Pro CS6 Techniques: 101 Exposure & Lighting Effects -- Adobe Premiere Pro Tutorial



©2012 CreativeCOW.net. All rights reserved.


In this tutorial, Andrew Devis goes through an under-used effect in Premiere Pro which can be a real shot-saver by giving you the option to completely re-light a scene with multiple lights if needed. In this tutorial, Andrew shows how to use the effect to create a volumetric lighting effect for one shot and then to save a shot which suffers from being taken in a very bright environment and lastly a shot what has issues with being too dark in places. As well as being able to re-light a shot this effect also offers an exposure control which although somewhat linked to an ambient light is still a very useful feature to have in Premiere Pro.

Re: Premiere Pro CS6 Techniques: 101 Exposure & Lighting Effects
by Andrew Devis
Hi Camille

Actually it isn’t the same in AE as there are a lot more options, this really is just a PP tutorial.
For example, in AE you have a dedicated ‘Exposure’ effect!

And, if you want to achieve a similar lighting effect you would either duplicate the layer or create a new solid, put a mask on it and select a blend mode for the mask to create the lightened or darkened look. The reason it is easier in AE is that it is far easier to create all kinds of different shaped masks in AE on another layer and then use blend modes. In PP, although you have blend modes it is actually hard to create something like an ellipse!

Hope this helps
Andrew

... because it's all about stories ...

In this second tutorial on Media Encoder, Andrew Devis shows how to create preset groups for customers to ensure that you always export the same file types and minimize the risk of choosing the wrong presets when outputting multiple different sequences. Andrew also shows how to customize a preset to meet specific needs such as different frame rates or frame sizes etc and save that preset and add it to a preset group for the customer you created it for. Andrew then shows how to quickly select a smaller portion of the sequence so that you can test your output settings on a much smaller section of the sequence you want to export.

Time remapping is hands-down the most powerful time changing effect in Premiere Pro and also great fun to work with once you know how to use it. In this tutorial Andrew Devis shows how to vary the time of a clip, how to ease that change, how to ease into a hold keyframe and then ease back out again. He then goes on to show how to make the whole clip carry on to play backwards and how to ease the change between playing one direction and the next.

The 'Posterize Time' effect can be used to set a frame rate for a piece of footage or a nested sequence. However, in this tutorial, Andrew Devis shows how to use it as a special effect to create dramatic looks for your footage or to give the impression that the footage was taken on an older camera which worked at a different (usually lower) frame rate. (Note: Although it is possible to animate this effect, it can cause unpredictable results and so any keyframes created will be hold key frames giving instant transitions rather than gradual changes).

The Ultra Key in Premiere Pro is a way of quickly and efficiently 'Green/Blue Screening' or 'Chroma Keying' footage elements shot against a colored background. In this tutorial, Andrew Devis shows a slightly more advanced way to set up to use the Ultra Key in Premiere Pro which involves matting out areas of the footage that either have items to be removed or have nothing but the chroma color in them (i.e. no action in those areas). Andrew goes through the process of creating a matte that just has the item to be keyed while keeping a good soft edge to the footage by using other effects in Premiere Pro. He then creates the final matted piece and applies the Ultra Key and goes on to shows how to adjust that matte after the Ultra Key has been applied.
