Yo, I'm trying to add an image into a video but remove the checkered background. Is there an easy way I can do this in premiere?

 

I'll attatch the image as well.opa.jpg

Hello ryanl73228206,

Actually adobe photoshop is more relevant in your case but if you want to do it in premiere you should use 'crop'effect and use the pen tool to mask this item and crop 100% outside this item

Word,

I don't have photoshop which is why I wanted to do it in premiere, and I was hoping to avoid manually cropping it. But you gotta do what you gotta do I guess. 

Thanks for the tip

Dont use the mask feature from the Crop effect. They dont go well together.

Use a mask from Opacity.

usually, the checkered background indicates that the source files has transparency and dropping the clip on the timeline above another video track will superimpose it...  where did you get the file?

Out of curiosity, managed to find the image via Google Image Search.

It is indeed a downloadable PNG with transparency:

Wonder if the OP is trying to use the web image versus downloading the PNG file.
