Get more control with precise desktop edits.
With Premiere Rush, you get a fast way to apply default Pan and Zoom to each image, but with Premiere Pro, you get more precise controls around how your images are animated, plus more ways to add effects and duration changes to a large batch at once.
Premiere Pro has all the advanced video tools a professional moviemaker could want. You can import still images that are PNG, TIFF, JPG (JPEG) or PSD files, just as you would import video files. And transitions work similarly to the way they do in Premiere Rush: If you highlight multiple clips before you add a transition, it will apply to each one.
Adjust the duration of multiple images at once.
The default amount of time a photo shows on screen in a Premiere Pro project is five seconds. To change the default, go to Preferences › Timeline and adjust the Still Image Default Duration. Adjust this before you import images, so they will each be set at your desired duration.
Add effects and presets to multiple images at once.
You can apply visual adjustments to many images at once in a few different ways: Adjust one image and save it as a preset to apply to multiple clips, nest your images together so they act as one clip (after other adjustments like transitions are done) or add an adjustment layer to your timeline that spans the entire length of your project.
Add keyframes to change properties of each photo over time.
Keyframes are an advanced animation tool, which you can use in place of automatic panning and zooming adjustments in order to specify how each image will change as it sits on screen. Keyframes can be applied for several different properties, such as scale, opacity, position, rotation and other visual effects.
