New Premiere Pro 2020 Effect! How to Auto Reframe Video to Any Size

November 9, 2019

hey what’s up everybody and welcome back
to Gal today we are going to be showing you the new auto reframe feature inside
of the latest release of Adobe Premiere Pro 2020 which is version 14 in Auto
reframing does exactly what the title does it uses Adobe sensized artificial
intelligence AI technology to auto detect where the action in the shot is
happening so that way it can auto reframe that shot to the action in
vertical as well as square videos and any custom sequence that you’re working
on so if you’re doing lots of social media video this is going to be a huge
time saver and this video is made possible by the support from soundstripe now I’ve talked about soundstripe before it’s a great service for
filmmakers you can get unlimited tracks for a small monthly fee and they have
sound effects too and better yet they just created a new panel inside of
Premiere Pro so you can search for music and sound effects inside of premiere and
licensed it for any type of project it can be for commercial personal YouTube
whatever and you guys can save 10% using my code GAL10 so go check it out I’ll
put a link in the description now let’s go ahead and jump into premiere so if
you’re creating a sequence from scratch and you go down to new item sequence you
can create your own custom presets for a vertical video now if you’re wondering
how I created this custom sequence you can watch a video that I’ll put up in a
card in the upper right on how to do that so I’m going to hit OK and you can
see it’s a vertical sequence now if I wanted to take this shot here that I got
from Envato elements and I drag and drop it into my
timeline I want to make sure to keep existing settings but now as I go
through you can the up she goes off of frame now what I
would have to do is is keyframe the shot or cut it so I could keep her in frame
but now with Auto reframe I can just go over to effects and you can just search
Auto reframe and the latest update make sure you download it of course and
double click to apply to the clip and it starts to analyze it and it’s super fast
so now you see as I scrub through she stays and frame the entire time and I
didn’t have to do anything literally if you select this and go up to effect
control as you can see what auto reframe does is auto generate all of these
keyframes you see all these keyframes up here that is all a bunch of motion
position keyframes that it applied and we didn’t have to do that at all so that
is super cool but let’s say you have a final edit already prepared here you can
see I have one here I have music I have transitions here let me just play it
back for you so I have some pretty cool transitions
on there I use seamless transitions it’s an awesome pack thousand transitions you
guys should go check it out and I have music from soundstripe so what if I
wanted to make a square version and a vertical version of this traditionally
what you would have to do is you have to go over here into your project panel and
you’d have to right-click and then you’d have to duplicate it and then you’d have
to manually move all of the shots that way it’s framed in the action but now
what you can do is just right click on the sequence then go to auto reframe
sequence and this is where it gets cool here you can rename your sequence and
then you can choose the aspect ratio you want the sequence to be auto reframe too
so if you want it to be square vertical 4:5 vertical 9:16
horizontal or custom which is really cool so let’s do square first and I’m
not going to nest the clips because I have transitions if I nest the clips
this will remove transitions but it will keep any motion adjustments that you’ve
made to those clips so I’m going to select don’t nest clips because I have
transitions and then hit create and then while that is processing we can right
click again and let’s go ahead and auto reframe a 9:16 version alright now
let’s go back to the final edit here and let’s go ahead and render just hit the
enter key and same here with the final edit the 9
by 16 as I scrub through you can see that all the shots are centered I didn’t
have to do any reframing at all and all that took was just a couple clicks
versus probably at least 15 minutes of editing per sequence so it’s a huge
time-saver I highly recommend you guys checking it out
also be sure to check out soundstripe you guys can get 10% off with my code at
GAL10 I’ll put a link in the description box below so if this video
helped you out be sure to give it a big thumbs up if it gets to 5,000 likes that

else you guys want me to cover be sure to leave a comment below and lastly a
huge shout out to my new patrons this month if you go check out you guys can get some cool perks by joining the community like free

    Oh, I’m using this one for sure!

    What the title says 🙂 Great walk-through – you're first I think 😀 Reframing horses right NOW – can't wait for the updateee….

    (Edit: Creative Cloud didn't have any updates (as usual) – went online (to the website) and opted to install/try Premiere Pro (which I already had ofc) – THEN – suddenly, 18(!) updates – from PP 13.1.5 & Photoshop 20.0.7…ALL apps up one digit – 14, 21, 24…etc. Even Adobe Bridge! 😐 Let's see which plugins will stop working)

    I have a Chromebook and I start paying premier pro but it does not work, what is the least expensive laptop I can get to start using the program, since my mobile phone does most of the things except video editing? Thank you in advance, Premier Gal! I'm learning alot from your videos!

    Does this work if you've already re-framed a sequence? (Re-poed and pushed in 4K footage in a 1080 16:9 sequence)

    And once again a beautifull video.

    Great Tutorial. This could work for PIP

    Nooooo!! This is going to save time meaning I can't charge the client as much. Damn you Adobe.

  • Reply Lindsey Hazel November 4, 2019 at 6:36 pm

    Oooooh excited to use this new feature! Thank you for showing the breakdown for how this works too- super helpful!

    Question: do you like Soundstripe better than epidemic sound or do you have a video on that? Thanks gal!

  • Reply Brad Poirier November 4, 2019 at 6:36 pm

    Is this release going out in batches or something? I don't see it as an update in my CC installer.. latest I have is 13.1.5, and no updates available for it.

    Perfect breakdown

    This feature is such a life saver.

  • Reply alphazoom November 4, 2019 at 10:07 pm

    Great feature, but I wonder how it performs on footages without action/people, like for exemple landscapes or machines, etc.

    What’s up, yourself?

  • Reply Ted Bragg November 5, 2019 at 1:52 am

    Auto reframe is a Godsend for those of us who tape Sunday preachers. They tend to rabbit around and its nerve wracking! With this I can shoot in 1080, and reframe to 720 and it'll keep shots and pans steady. Thank. You. Adobe.

    Thanks. Do we have this feature in After Effects as well?

    Your sponsor is Soundstripe but YouTube puts an ad in front of your video. Nice.

  • Reply KISS Your Web, LLC November 5, 2019 at 2:11 pm

    What an amazing update! Wow! Timesaver extraordinaire!

    Quick question about Soundstripe – I edit documentary films that are sold in all types of distribution channels (For educational talks, curriculum licensing, VOD, theatres, etc.). Does the standard commercial pricing cover those types of products? I’ve found for this type of project, it’s a completely different pricing structure…

  • Reply SangapakThor November 5, 2019 at 5:50 pm

    Glad to see your video and really helpful, but my adobe premier version 2018 there is no Auto Reframe. Please help. Thank.

    Can this be done in landscape?

    Awesome! I Just started doing a YouTube channel and I’ve had to modify videos for IG feed, story and then IGTV and this saves TONS of time!

  • Reply Chris Zayachkowski November 6, 2019 at 10:33 pm

    This is pretty cool and such a practical feature. Is this feature unique to Adobe Premiere Pro 2020?

  • Reply TravelRideTV November 7, 2019 at 1:17 am

    can this auto reframe apply to static shot like using tripod..and its look like fake camera movement?

  • Reply Mark Smith November 8, 2019 at 1:42 pm

    I've been trying this on a clip but it takes ages to do it on, I shot a project and it still hadn't finished after 45 mins, is the normal wait time? Thought i would try it on a shorter clip but it keeps saying analysing, is this a normal thing?
