Editing Photoshop file in Premiere Pro

Adobe Premiere Pro is a great video editor and one of things that make it so powerful is the way you can seamlessly work with Adobe Photoshop files within Premiere.

Getting Started (3:28)
In this tutorial I will review how to open the Premiere Pro project I set up for us to practice with and explain how to import some sample files.

Import Lower Third into Premiere (4:13)
In this tutorial we will import the lower third graphic we created in Photoshop into Premiere, Adobe's video editing software. I will talk about the import options and how to add them to the video project. This lesson is an extension from the Project 1 on the "Creating Video Graphics with Photoshop" web page.

Animating a multi-layered Photoshop sequence (12:36)

In this project you will learn how to import a multi-layered Photoshop file into Premiere Pro as a “sequence” and then easily animate it using key frames in the effects controls. You will learn how to:

  • Import a Photoshop file as a sequence
  • Nest sequences
  • Use the effects controls to animated the position of multiple layers
  • Work with key frames and easing
  • Launch and edit a Photoshop file from Premiere Pro
  • Add a drop shadow and stroke to a layer in Photoshop
  • Use a variety of keyboard shortcuts

Files *You will find this in the "Examples" folder in the psVideo folder.

  • Backup_logo_layers.psd is just a copy of the Photoshop file in case you make a mistake.
  • Saleen_Car.avi and Saleen_logo_Layers.psd are the video and Photoshop files provided by Adobe when you purchased Adobe Premiere Pro.
  • Lesson02 contains the files for another animated logo. Inside that folder you will find “Prp2it_multicam.pdf” which is the step-by-step directions for this project from the Adobe tutorials web site http://www.adobe.com/uk/designcenter/tutorials/. Feel free to try this project if you have extra time.
