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 the exercises.

Q&A

Q1:I use Echo but the clip becomes so bright it washes everything out. What's up?
A1: You've probably selected the Add or Screen option, which means that the brightness level of each echo adds itself to the original clip and its other echoes. If the Starting Intensity setting is high—near or at 1—then it takes only about two or three clips to obliterate your image. Set Starting Intensity to 1 divided by the number of echoes. If you use five echoes, then set Starting Intensity to 0.2 (1 / 5 = 0.2).
Q2:I get that same kind of washed-out look when using Basic 3D to add a specular highlight to my clip. How do I avoid that?
A2: Use the wireframe preview and the 3D move to keep the highlight (the green crosshair) near the edge of your clip. If it moves toward the center, the effect is like a mirror directly reflecting the sun.
