MB Blog 4-Post Production And Exporting.

This is the final practice video that was created.



In the post production stage, we sorted through the footage we had captured previously and selected what we found was the best clip to use. We then opened the Premier-Pro software and shortened the clip down to the time that we wanted it to be, in this case, around 5 seconds long. This was to take out some of the footage that wasn’t relevant to the footage we wanted because it had talking or movement that was done as the person was getting ready to record the video. Once we had the shortened down footage we imported it to After-Effects to begin editing it.


Once we had the shortened down footage we imported it to After-Effects to begin editing it. After setting up a sequence with the video in it, the green screen was removed by adding an ultra-key to the video and selecting it to remove the green colour, which in turn removes the green screen background. By also changing some of the colour settings, the green haze around the figure was removed, leaving just the specified figure in the video without any of the green screen that made up the background.


Once the background was removed, another sequence was added but this time of a solid red colour to use as a background. In the settings it was able to be changed so it would look different to being just a solid colour, and now had a different and more interesting setting in the background.


The final thing to be added was the text displaying what would be the player name, their number and their position, as well as their sponsor. This was simply made by adding in a text box and entering the text, then changing the size and font to large and impact to make the text stand out, although the number was made larger. This meant that now the text could be made to move using the transform settings and changing the scale, rotation and the opacity and adding in key frame’s at different points to make the text turn and grow and fade in. After all these effects were made,the final edit was saved.


  1. After exporting into Adobe Media Encoder, click on the format or preset on the exported video to open the settings box.


2. First Check that the format is set to H.264 for video, or MP3 for audio. Then make sure the preset says Match Source-High Bitrate. Then click the Output Name and it should open a save box.


3. Change the name of the exported video to an appropriate name then click save.


4. Once these steps are all done and the settings are correct, click OK on the bottom of the page to be brought back to the first menu.


5. Click the small green arrow at the top right of the Queue box to start the exporting.


6. Once the export has started it will export in the encoding box at the bottom of the page. Once this process has done the first box that was clicked in the Queue menu will turn grey and no longer be clicked, this means that the video has exported.
