How to make ESPN-style slowmos and special effects in Premiere Pro CS3 using the Time Remapping Effect
In Part 1 of this two part podcast, host Jeff Schell shows you how to take a clip of a football game -- or any sporting event -- and use Premiere Pro's built-in Time Remapping effects to create slow motion "slowmos" and freeze frames. This real-world example illustrates how to identify an event in a video clip and separate the Time-Remapping keyframes around that event so that the video speed smoothly decelerates instead of immediately jumping to slow-motion, as previous versions of Premiere used to do. Then Jeff walks you through the steps of creating a second pair of Time-Remapping keyframes to accelerate the video back up to 100% speed. Jeff also demonstates how to use the Alt+drag combo to rove ("move") your Time Remapping keyframes in the Sequence, as well as the Alt+Ctrl+drag combo to create instantaneous, frozen ("paused") keyframes.
Also check back for Part 2 next week, when Jeff demonstrates how to make some of the same visual effect techniques seen on ESPN SportsCenter to highlight specific players or plays
