How to create a video overlay effect.
1. First, import your footage into Premiere Pro.
2. Add your footage to the timeline.
3. Go up to File › New › Adjustment Layer.
4. Take the newly created adjustment layer and put it above your footage on the timeline.
5. Go to Effects and choose any effect.
6. Take your effect and drag it onto the adjustment layer.
7. Go to Effect Controls, and go down to the effect you chose. This is where you want to experiment.
8. To apply a blend, choose an option in the Blend Mode menu. With certain effects, blending can affect the strength of the effect.
You can use the blend modes to get exciting effects. Blend modes choose how a layer is going to be combined with another layer underneath. For example, if you select the Dark blend mode, it will only let through the pixels that make the underlying image darker.
Mix it up in Premiere Pro.
While correctly mixing audio and video clips is a balancing act, Premiere Pro makes it easy with the right features. You can add video, audio, and graphics without worrying about formats — Premiere Pro can work with AVI, MPG, WAV, WMV, and other popular audio and video formats.
One of the benefits of mixing or editing in Premiere Pro is that it’s a familiar-looking timeline-based video editor. You can trim clips, crop videos, and rearrange scenes all in one place. Its intuitive controls let you get exactly the look, sound, and feel you want.
The audio capabilities of Premiere Pro are fully dynamic and user-friendly, making it a powerful tool to remove background noise, improve clarity, and enhance soundtracks. This video mixer works best with Adobe After Effects and is compatible with Adobe Creative Cloud if you need more special effects, sound effects, or plug-ins.
