Apply Light Streaks to Highlights in Premiere Pro
Here's a cool look! In this tutorial, Chung Dha will teach you how to isolate highlights with a Luma Key and create light streaks with the Directional Blur effect in Premiere Pro. He also uses the Lumetri Color effect to add color to the light streaks. This effect is applied to a duplicate version of the clip and composited with a Screen blend mode. The nice thing about this effect is it can be as extreme or subtle as you want. Increase or decrease the Opacity of the duplicated clip with the effects to adjust the intensity of the light streaks.
DIY Paint Titles in Premiere Pro
Even though you never even see Premiere Pro in this tutorial. In this video, Chestnut Edits takes a DIY approach to creating real painted titles in Premiere Pro. When we say DIY, we mean Chestnut takes you from store-to-store, picking up the necessary materials to create hand-painted titles. The titles are painted on a sheet of green paper, which is keyed out using the Ultra Key effect in Premiere Pro. Of course, this clever technique can be used to create all kinds of graphics and textures, not just titles!
