5 Basic and Easy animation tips for Adobe Premiere Pro. Learn how to take the most out of your graphic and text animations with these simple tips and tricks tutorial video.

As you saw in the video, Jordy still has long hair. I know it isn’t that great, but no worries he went to the hairdresser and is looking good now. However if Jordy has long hair in this video, that means that it’s Jordy from a few weeks ago. And you are right, we again needed to prerecord this video because we don’t have enough time to combine the short movie with making YouTube videos. That’s why we decided to cover a fairly easy topic in todays video, Keyframing.

Don’t get me wrong, keyframing maybe easy. But is super crucial in making realistic animations. And if you neglect fine tuning them, your audience will immediately see that the animation is fake. There is one thing we mention in almost every video we make when doing animations. After you created a keyframe, you need to provide it with an Ease Out (for the begin keyframe) and a Ease In ( for the end keyframe). This will give that smooth motion and realistic feel.

Personally I find keyframing within After Effects much better and smoother due to the more advanced tool you have there. But Premiere Pro is also perfect to create your animations in. I’m just a very big fan of using expressions in my animations. This will give that something extra to your motion design, really selling it. If you are also interested in expressions like me, you should definitely check out an older video we made about it.
