The host, Kevin Anson, walks through the entire process of designing and animating a lower third that can be reused in Premiere Pro to reveal your text.

Olufemii Tutorials: Siiiick Premiere Pro Transition Technique: Deflection

Most importantly, Josh says these visual elements must be accompanied by an audio effect for maximum impact. This tutorial has a lot of interesting concepts. Well worth the watch and consideration.

Screenlight: The Definitive Guide to Adobe Premiere Pro's Media Cache

Premiere Pro's media cache is mysterious. Even today, I have to remind myself not to be afraid of it. Thankfully, there's this new guide from Screenlight, a blog post written by Premiere Pro trainer Jason Cox. He defines the media cache as a collection of "helper files" for Premiere Pro. Jason goes on to explain the different types of files and how to manage them. Great post!

Video editors deal with a lot of files. Beyond the of thousands of media files, render files, autosaves, and backups, the last thing we want to think about is additional… anything. But the dirty secret is, there are probably files on your system right now, devouring precious hard drive space and you have no idea they’re there! ::cue dramatic music:: Welcome to Premiere’s Media Cache! —Jason Cox, Screenlight Blog


Rocketstock: Video Codecs and Image Sequences with Alpha Channels

To beginners, "Alpha channel" sounds like a sci-fi term, like some kind of video 4th dimension. Simply put, it's transparency, something that can be seen through. For example, if you have a graphic that you want export and overlay on top of your video, you need to export it in a format that allows everything but the graphic to be transparent. Otherwise your graphic will be surrounded by black video. This Rocketstock blog post by Michael Maher is a quick look at some of the codecs and image formats that support an alpha channel. These formats can be used when exporting out of Premiere Pro or Adobe Media Encoder.

Creating an overlay or title sequence that you want to make sure keeps the alpha channel on export? Here are some of the best video codecs and image sequences that will make layering clips a breeze. —Michael Maher, Rocketstock blog
