    In this Adobe Premiere Pro CC Tutorial I will be sharing 5 little video editing tips, tricks, and techniques that can make a big difference in your final project.
    1. Pull Focus - Using dimming and blurring in the background you can pull focus to text, images, or pop ups in the foreground. You can even use keyframes to gently animate in and out of this. (0:20)
    2. Gentle Motion - You can use scale and position keyframes to gently ease in and out of pictures in a slideshow fashion. This is great to keep the flow of the video going and keep still frames engaging for the viewer. (2:20)
    3. Audio Ducking - There are many ways to duck audio, however this simple visual pull of the volume line allows you to visually dip in and out of important moments such as voice overs and transitions. (3:50)
    4. Sound Design - This is a larger topic in general but it is good to remember that you can apply sounds the same way you apply video effects with a little creativity. (5:40)
    5. Vignette - a subtle vignette can go a long way in bringing out the focus and color grading of certain scenes and pictures. This tool in the Lumetri color panel can come in handy for clips shot on clear blue skies or with soft edges. (7:40)
    Keep these 5 subtle techniques and variety of knowledge in your arsenal for many different video editing situations.
    Thanks for watching!

      Looking forward to hearing your podcast. I have been watching your videos as I troubleshoot making videos for my channel christinaquestgowda. Why does adding text degrade the quality of the video on which it overlaps?

      @Justin Odisho "and the eye doesn't really know"... I mistook "the" for d from "and"

    I clicked on this video, and was instantly bombarded by an ad FOR PREMIERE PRO AND AFTER EFFECTS!?
    NOT a coincidence.

    Plz plz reply

    How do i insert a small clip in the big video

    Ok like this the video you are playing is in the city right?,but then you want to insert another clip in it
    Not between it but i mean 2 video play at once
    But the background as the city and then a cropped small video clip in it but both played at the same time
    Examaple:so you are like recording or playing the city video but at the same time you put a person running in it while the city background in motion
    So in the end it would be 2 video in 1
    Plz plz don't say just insert between it
    I want 2 video play at once not just 1 clip end and the other start play
    I want both to start simultaneously
    So yeah plz reply

    Thank you for sharing these -- it's really beneficial for newbies just starting out with Premiere Pro. :) We just completed one project using Adobe Premiere Pro after switching over from iMovie (we're very green when it comes to shooting & editing footage and are always open to feedback to improve)! With one video under our belt, seeing these tips and tricks are really helpful -- especially the Audio Ducking! Thought we'd have to manage audio levels in key frames in the Effect Controls, but having the ability to manipulate audio levels visually is truly useful!
