Creating an AMV Video with Adobe Premiere Elements
Now, it’s time to pick the video clips that you’re planning on using. If you’re using a bought DVD and are planning on selling your video, you might want to check on the royalty rights for the company. You may be infringing on them, which could get you into a world of trouble. But, if this is something that you’re merely using for your own pleasure, you should be fine.
Next, you need to import your clips into Adobe Premiere Elements. You can do this by following the below steps:
- Go to File, and Import
- Find the file on your computer, and select it.
- Click Open.
If you need to open multiple clips at once, you can do this by holding down the CTRL (Windows) or COMMAND (Mac) key, and then select your files. To add the audio to your Adobe Premiere timeline, just follow the same procedures.
Your clips and music should now be on your timeline. If you need to trim the clip, you can do this by adjusting the clips In and Out points, which is done by dragging the edge of the clip. Once you’ve done editing your clips, just arrange them with the music.
You can move your clips around simply by dragging them around the timeline with your mouse. If you find that a certain clip doesn’t fit a certain section of music, simply move it to somewhere else on your timeline where it will fit.
When you are finished compiling and editing your clips to match your music, preview your video to see if there are any additional changes that need to be made. If not, you can now publish your video. From here, you can burn it to a CD or upload to your favorite website.
