Since the 2017 update to Adobe After Effects and Premiere comes with them the Essential Graphics panel. What this allows you to do is easily create simple After Effects animated templates from scratch or from a pre-existing template and use them effortlessly in Premiere Pro.
This simple tutorial will show you how to get your created After Effects project (background, title, lower thirds, etc–) into the Adobe Premiere Essential Graphics panel so you can use and modify your stuff over and over again, rather than recreate the wheel over and over again in After Effects.

How to Create Your Very Own Premiere Essential Graphics


, , , , , , , , , ,

by Adobe

Motion Graphics templates are a file type (.mogrt) that can be created in After Effects or Premiere Pro.

Motion Graphics templates give Premiere Pro editors the power of After Effects motion graphics, packaged up as templates with easy-to-use controls designed to be customized in Premiere Pro.

New titles and graphics can also be created with Premiere Pro’s Type and Shape tools, then exported as a Motion Graphics template for future reuse or sharing. For information on creating graphics, see Create titles and motion graphics.

Apple Has Discontinued Its Photo Printing Services—Here Are 7 Alternatives


, , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

The holidays are fast approaching and, as is my home, popular gift ideas include holiday cards, family photos, and calendars.

Apple has discontinued its popular photo printing services that I’ve used for so many years, which enabled you to create and order physical prints, cards, calendars, and books from within Photos on the Mac. Apple is directing users to download a Photos Project Extension from the Mac App Store. You’ll see this dialog whenever you click a project in Photos…

When you click the Open App Store button, Photos opens the App Store app and shows available Photos Project Extensions. (If you need to open this Mac App Store screen manually, search on appex:com.apple.photo-project.) Most of these extensions are free, since they’ll make their money when you order projects.

These extensions aren’t exact replacements for Apple’s projects, so let’s look briefly at what they provide.

Mimeo Photos

My favorite is the extension that comes closest to providing the same products and features as Apple’s print projects is Mimeo Photos, which can create cards, calendars, and books. It offers a wide array of themes.

Here are the remaining alternatives, including Motif, Shutterfly and MPix…

As a video producer or production company, booking a local freelancer for your client-facing shoot is not a task to take lightly. Book the wrong person and you’ll be in quite a jam. Going through the freelance hiring process is half like giving a job interview, and half selling the crew member on the excitement of the project. So it’s certainly both an art and a science. After booking for hundreds of outside freelance crew members, I’ve assembled six key items to look for to avoid disaster and make your out-of-town production a success.

#1: Build your List

The first thing you want to do is build a list of at least 10 to 15 freelance options in the area. While this seems like a lot, for most production roles you will only be able to get in touch with 5 to 6 of the targets on your list.

Here is a spreadsheet booking templateyou can download to keep track of your candidates.
