Customizing your effects using keyframes
Printer-friendly version (61 KB)
The Matrox realtime plug-in for Adobe Premiere Pro lets you customize the transform (perspective) and crop settings on a clip by creating keyframes on the Transform and Crop tracks. A keyframe is a marker that defines settings at a specific point in time, such as a clip's position on the screen. An interpolation is automatically set between your keyframes to create a gradual transition from one keyframe's settings to the next. The transform settings you can control are position, size, offset, and rotation.
In the tutorial Applying a page curl to a title, you learned how to create a title using Adobe Title Designer, and apply a realtime page curl to your title. This is a prelude to the following tutorials that show you how to customize your effects using keyframes:
