Max Novak: 3D Mirror Text Through Screen Effect in Premiere Pro

Today I'm going to be showing you a little trick in premiere inspired by the Lil Yachty music video "Better". My method is different from theres (I'm guessing they made the text in after effects, if you want a full tutorial on the exact text let me know in the comments). My method will show you how you can easily create a similar "glassy text through screen effect" all in premiere! —Max Novak

Chung Dha: Easy Self-writing Text Tutorial in Adobe Premiere Pro

In this Tutorial video I am showing you in an easy method how to achieve the self-writing text effect inside of Adobe Premiere Pro, without needing to make a lot of titles and inside of Premiere Pro. There is no preset for this so just watch the video. —Chung Dha

Ever wonder how to make text "write-on" by itself? Did you know Premiere Pro has a Write-on effect? In this Premiere Pro tutorial, Chung Dha teaches how to animate the Write-on effect to reveal your text so it looks like it's writing on the screen.

First, create your text using the Title Designer in Premiere Pro. Script or handwritten fonts work particularly well with this technique. Then apply the Write-on effect to a Transparent Video clip above your text in the Timeline. 

Next, Chung makes some preliminary changes to the stroke length at 1:41. But starting at 2:10 Chung begins keyframing the path of the stroke that will reveal the text. He uses keyframe bezier handles to finesse the path around the curves of the text.

The next step is critical. At 4:36, Chung increases the Brush Size so that it covers all the text. This is important because any text outside the stroke will be visible before the write-on animation. 

Keyframing the path on the text is a time-consuming process that looks much faster when sped up in a tutorial. Power through! The reward of seeing your text write-on is well-worth it! 

Now for the magic. At 5:49, Chung applies the Track Matte Key effect to the Title clip, and selects the track with the Transparent Video clip as a Matte. Now the Write-on stroke animation reveals the Title. Alternatively, the Write-on effect has it's own Reveal Original Image Paint Style which does the same thing as the Track Matte Key.

Orange83: How to Make Fargo Style Split Screens Side by Side in Adobe Premiere Pro

Learn how to make FARGO style split screens or side by side videos in Adobe premiere Pro. —Orange83

If you're a fan of the Fargo TV show, then you're going to enjoy this Premiere Pro tutorial by Orange83. For those who don't know, the show makes use of some creative split screens to help tell the story. Orange83 includes an example at 0:23.

Creating the Fargo-style split screen is pretty easy. Just stack the clips in the timeline, use the Crop effect on the top clip to remove unwanted edges, and position the clips to taste. Watch Orange83 starting at 1:03 create his split screen using both the Crop and Motion effects.

If you want to have a black line dividing your split screen, simply position or crop the video clips so there is a gap between them. Otherwise, you can stylize your split screen by creating your own dividing line in the Title Designer. Create a new title and use the line tool to draw a line between your clips like Orange83 does at 2:47.

It's time to get more creative with split screens. At 3:40 Orange83 shows how to create an asymmetrical split screen with three clips. Same as before, use the clips' Motion effects to size and position the clips where you want them to go. This time, instead of using the Crop effect, apply the Linear Wipe effect and adjust the Duration and Angle of the transition. In this scenario you will have to use the Title Designer if you want to create dividing lines between your clips. The result is a very cool multi-split screen.
