Workshop

Review the questions and answers in this section to try to sharpen your Premiere video effects skills. Also, take a few moments to tackle my short quiz and give the best of these effects brief trial runs in the exercises to discover more ideas about how to best use them.

Q&A

Q1:I used keyframes to create a nice Twirl effect that gradually grew tighter and tighter, but then it suddenly jumped to the setting I applied to the first keyframe. What's the story?
A1: It sounds like you forgot to adjust the default last keyframe to make sure it holds the tight twirl through the end of the clip. When you set the opening “loose” Twirl setting, that numerical setting was automatically applied to both the start and end keyframes. As you added keyframes, you changed the numerical values to tighten the twirl up to your last keyframe. But you need to move to the end keyframe to make sure its setting equals the values you gave to the last keyframe you added to this clip.
Q2:I added an effect to a clip and used keyframes to change its behavior during the clip, but I don't like the result. How can I change this?
A2: Use the Keyframe Navigator—the check box with the two triangles next to the video track—to move to the frame(s) you want to fix. Use the Effect Controls palette or the Effect Settings dialog box to make your changes. If you simply want to move a keyframe, grab it and slide it to a new position. If you want to make the move frame specific, put the edit line at your new location, adjust the Effects values in the Effect Controls palette or the Effect Settings dialog box (thus creating a new keyframe at that location). Then delete the errant frame by selecting it and clicking the Keyframe Navigator check box.
