Adobe Rush for Digital Essays
If you’re using Premiere Rush for a basic media project, here are a couple suggestions to showcase your work.
Use Fullscreen Photos
Make sure your images carry their full impact by making them full screen. When you add photos to your timeline, you may need to enlarge them so they fill the full frame. Use the Crop & Rotate tool to change the width or height of images.
Choose Understated Transitions
Most films use either straight cuts or dissolves as they move from one image or video clip to the next. More elaborate PowerPoint-style transitions can be distracting, so when open the Transitions tab limit yourself to either Cross Dissolve or None for transitions.
Working with Audio
Audio is a commonly overlooked part of a video project. In this short segment, you’ll hear how clear audio can amplify your digital story.
Working with Images
Carefully chosen images can add impact to any digital story. In this segment, we’ll walk through key considerations in which pictures and video clips you choose.
