Video Editing On Premiere Pro for Gaming Creators


Introduction


Editing video is a must if you're a streamer, YouTuber, or any kind of content creator. When you're editing your videos, there are certain things that will take you from amateur to professional. This guide will cover what those things are so that you can create better videos for your audience!


Basic Editing


Import your video clips, audio, and title graphics into the Adobe Premiere Pro timeline.

You can import your clips by dragging them from the Project panel onto either the Video or Audio tracks in your timeline.

To add a clip to your timeline: Drag a clip from the Project panel onto either track in the main viewing area of Adobe Premiere Pro. If you don't see any tracks when you drag a file into your timeline, click on an existing track name below where you want to add it (e.g., Video 1 or 2) to add it there instead of creating a new track for each new file added that way).


Key Frames


Keyframes are used for creating smooth transitions in your video. If you want to make a clip appear as if it's flying through the air, then keyframes are what'll let you do so.

Keyframes allow users to create animations that can be used over and over again, saving time when editing. When making a transition between two clips where one clip is moving towards camera while another is flying away from camera, simply add in a keyframe at the moment of collision between these two objects and use it as an anchor point for all future changes.


This means that by placing a keyframe at the exact moment of impact, you will be able to generate different animations by simply changing out what each object is doing during this specific point in time instead of having to adjust every single frame before or after this one manually—which would take far longer than just setting up one keyframe!


Effects


Effects are a great way to make your videos look more professional and fun. You can use effects to add a twist, make something stand out, or emphasize the importance of something in your video. You can also use them to make things like text pop out at viewers.

Some common effects you'll see in videos include:

  • Color correction

  • Grading

  • Filters


Transitions


You can use transitions to make your videos look professional.

Video transitions are used to mark the start and end of video clips and make a transition between two clips. You can add effects and fade in or out to make a smooth transition between two scenes.

Add transitions in Premiere Pro by dragging them onto a clip or by clicking on the Add Transition button and choosing from various options such as cross dissolve, wipe left, wipe right etc


Text

  • Text is a great way to add a personal touch to your video.

  • You can add text to your video in many different ways.

  • You can add text to your video by using the title tool.


Exporting


Once you have finished editing, it's time to export your video. The primary purpose of an export is to prepare your video for upload and distribution.

Exporting in Premiere Pro is pretty straightforward as long as you follow these guidelines:

  • Always use the right file format—keeping your options open and saving a copy of the original file will save you some headaches down the road. (You can do this by selecting "Save As" from the File menu.)

  • Use the right resolution and bitrate depending on how large or small your audience will be. For example, if you're uploading videos directly to YouTube, then use 1920x1080 resolution at 24fps with 60mbps bitrate for high-quality playback on most modern devices (note that this may not be ideal for older browsers). If uploading directly onto Twitch or YouTube Gaming, then use 1280x720 resolution at 30fps with 3500kbps bitrate for better audio/video quality (again, note that this may not be ideal for older browsers).


If you’re a streamer, or even just a creator who needs to edit video content, you’re going to want Premiere Pro.

Why? Because it has all of the tools needed for editing professional-grade videos with ease. It also allows for easy exportability and smooth workflow management. These are all important things for streamers because they can essentially make sure that their product is ready to go as soon as possible!


Conclusion


Now that you know some of the basics of video editing in Premiere Pro, you can start making your own amazing videos. Remember to keep things simple and remember that it's okay if they're not perfect! The best thing about learning a new skill is making mistakes along the way so don't be afraid to fail!
