The crop tool in Premiere Pro has a lot more to offer than you might think.
If you have any experience working in Adobe Premiere Pro, or any NLE for that matter, the crop tool is probably something that you’re at least somewhat familiar with. You might traditionally use it to zoom in on your footage a bit or even change the aspect ratio of your frame, but there’s actually a lot of really cool things you can do with this effect that you might’ve never heard about before.
In this video, Jordy Vandeput of Cinecom goes over five creative ways you can use the crop tool to make your edits more creative and dynamic, from animating text to creating sleek transitions. Check it out below:
While Vandeput certainly shows you how to pull off a handful of great effects, there is a myriad of interesting things you can do with the crop tool inside of Premiere Pro. His tutorial will not only provide you with a few new tricks that you can bust out the next time you work on a project but it will also, hopefully, get your creative juices flowing so you can come up with your own ideas on how to use the crop tool in more creative ways.
