maths for Premiere - and other apps

learning Premiere, I have been introduced to compound effects, specifically stacking up individual stills on different video tracks, so as to display them in sequence but on a single canvas in a single frame.

while I can, painstakingly, place stills in a frame in Program Monitor using 'Scale' and 'Position', it would be great to have a resource, possibly online tutorials, giving tips and tricks to resolve layout headaches, notably the mathematical placing of object in a canvas.

The matter of mathematical tricks to resolve geometrical layouts also applies to Illustrator and, no doubt a couple of other apps.

I am not looking for solutions in After Effects, as I won't get into AE until after I have achieved solid competence in Pr.

many thanks

Hi Guy,

I don't think there are any specific Premiere Pro specific geometrical layouts, as the variety of what you can do is almost endless, given different sizes of sequences/clips/choice of scaling.

 

Personally, I use an Excel spreadsheet and simple formulas to calculate X,Y coordinates, etc. Then, once created, you can usually create a .mogrt that you can use over and over again. 

Let me know if you need help with any of the specifics for your effects ideas. 

Thanks,
Kevin

I don't think so:

specifically stacking up individual stills on different video tracks, so as to display them in sequence but on a single canvas in a single frame

It sounds like the Brady Bunch grid with video.
