Add Introductions and Outros in Premiere
Edited by Djinu, Alexander Avdeev, Eng
You're watching VisiHow. In this video, we are going to show how to and an intro and an outro into Adobe Premiere Pro.
First off, we are going to import a file.
We'll need to make an introduction of our own in After Effects or use an After Effects template to create our own introduction. In this video, the file called "visi logo 2.aep" is clicked.
We click a composition.
In this video, "title" is clicked.
With the file imported, we click it and drag it onto the timeline.
We'll see what the file has. This file is going to be an intro, an outro, and the middle part that shows a logo in the top-right section of the screen. The video shows a logo for five seconds. Then, the video goes into the outro for five seconds. Now, we need to make the file work with our clip, as each clip is going to be of different size. There is not going to be one size of a clip that fits entirely into our intro and outro. We need to edit the file and separate intro from outro. In this video, one file is used because it is possible to edit the text in the file only once rather than editing the text separately for intro and outro.
We edit the text.
In this video, we type "Combine Image And Text". The text is the same as the file name that is shown on the right.
We press "enter".
We'll see that the text will be updated for outro and intro.
We zoom in a bit.
We'll have to make two cuts in the intro and outro. One will be where the clip changes from the intro to the middle part with the logo on the top right-hand side. The other cut will be where the clip goes from the logo on the top right-hand side to the outro, using the fade in and fade out effects.
We click the timeline frame number.
We'll type "50".
This is where the transition begins.
If we click the left arrow, we'll see the end of the transition.
We go back to the frame 50.
We press the "C" key for the razor tool.
We'll add a cut at the frame 50.
We click the timeline number.
We type "99".
This is another breaking point.
If we go left by one frame, the clip shows the same thing.
If we go right by one frame, the clip shows the same thing.
If we go right by one more frame, the clip shows the beginning of the outro.
We go back to the 99th frame.
We press "C".
We cut again. We'll have three separate areas.
We press "-" to zoom out.
We drag the outro to the very end of the clip.
We drag the second part to make it longer.
Basically, the video will have the outro added again. This is not what we want.
We undo the last action by pressing "command" and "Z".
We click the second part.
We right-click the second part.
However, in this video, we press "option" and "F" instead, which is a custom shortcut for "Add Frame Hold".
We scroll down to where the menu says, "Add Frame Hold".
We click "Add Frame Hold".
Doing this will basically take a frame from the current position and make it a still image in the video.
We click the second part and drag it to the very end of the timeline.
We play the video.
We'll have an intro, a distinct middle part with a frame hold, and an outro at the very end.
That was how to add an intro and outro into Premiere Pro. If you have any questions or comments, please leave them in the space below. Thanks for watching VisiHow!
