Adobe Premiere Pro Podcast #25: Creating a Sports Highlight Reel (part 2)How to edit a video frame in Photoshop and import it into Premiere Pro CS3 to create ESPN-style visual effects
In part 2 of this podcast, host Jeff Schell shows you how to take a clip of a football game -- or any sports event -- and export a frame of video to Adobe Photoshop in order to create ESPN-style visual effects, such as having two players briefly grow and shrink on the screen to highlight them. Jeff walks you through the options of the Export Frame dialog box to ensure proper export to Photoshop.
Then Jeff shows you how to isolate two players from the video frame using the Lasso tool in Photoshop, placing them on separate layers. As a shortcut to import multiple layers at once, Jeff imports the Photoshop document as a Sequence into Premiere Pro. To complete the effect, Jeff describes why you want to modify the clip's Anchor Point and Position coordinates in order to highlight the players with a grow-shrink method.
Jeff also provides shortcuts for copying scale keyframes from one clip to another. Finally, Jeff adds a simple Premiere Pro title containing two circle objects to help make the desired players stand out.
