Is there a simple way to add a white border around a still image or video clip in Premiere Pro CS 5.5? I've seen the suggestions for adding a radial shadow and am unsatisfied with the results; it's nearly impossible to center the image within the border and many other suggestions out there do not address CS 5.5.
Thank you much. The 4 shadows idea did the trick for me and was very simple.
I had a crop with a circular mask that I wanted a stroke on and had success using 2 drop shadows, one along the top and bottom edge. It gave it a nice style effect as it wasn't a perfect stroke around the whole clip. I could see using 4 drop shadows for perfection, but two did the trick for me.
Use paint bucket
fill selector :opacity
The best option is Newbluefx plugins -PIP; Photo grid more Premiere had those options in Premiere 6.5 years but lost in upgrades
Mine is for free.
Yes we use to have the Clip effect up to CS2.
That is very creative and takes a bit of time for frame shapes and sizes. Check youtube and there are other too. Pity Adobe has no border even to their PIP effects. Most editing program have.
Just make a preset.
But the Newbluefx makes multiple sizes very easy and you will save time and do more. I use PIP a lot for my TV Programs and lots of sizes shapes, circles, diamonds. multi screens with borders and shadows. Premiere is good but the plugins make it better.
Yes you can make those also in Pr.
quick star pip which you can animate to.
Made with a mask and a color matte.
Do you want a gradient for a border you can use the Ramp effect.
If you want a shadow, nest the pip.
I have not been online for some time due to job overload. I see your style is not bad at.
This is some of the programs I do every week and has to be fast and neat so those work
around will help but one will need more time. I start as late Wednesday whiles the submission
time is Thursday 12.30pm and a grace period of about 2hours. Clients what multiscreen
Way easier soltion!
1. Duplicate the layer
2. On the bottom layer use the scale (uncheck uniform scale) to make your bottom layer slightly larger.
3. Use curves and exposure in lumetri colour to make the bottom layer white
