LV UP with Monogram: Premiere Clip Motion
Below is a step-by-step guide on how to use the Monogram Creative Console to efficiently navigate and adjust clips in Premiere Pro:
- First, open Monogram Creator and create a new Premiere profile.
- Assign a monogram dial to jog the playhead in Premiere by clicking on a dial module, opening up Playback and Navigation, selecting the jog preset, and pressing done. Now you can smoothly jog the playhead forward or backward by simply rotating the dial.
- Assign a dial to select edit points by selecting the editing drop-down, finding the select edit point option, and assigning the dial to it. Now you can use that dial to move the playhead between edit points on the targeted track.
- If the dial is moving too quickly, open up the module settings and turn down the sensitivity until it feels perfect.
- Assign the orbiter module to adjust clip position and scale by clicking on the module in Creator, selecting Motion, and choosing Position and Scale. Now, when you have a clip selected in Premiere, you can rotate the orbiter ring to increase or decrease the scale. You can also tilt the orbiter's disk to intuitively reposition the clip horizontally and vertically.
- Assign another dial to edit clip opacity by clicking on a dial module and selecting the opacity preset. Now, with a clip selected, you can rotate the dial to increase or decrease the clip's opacity.
- If you enable animation for the opacity effect in Premiere, you can quickly jog over the clip and add opacity keyframes without ever needing to take your hand off the console.
- With these tips, the Monogram Creative Console can help shave countless hours off your editing workflow.
