As time passes, Premiere Pro is proving more and more to be capable of being an all around workhorse for your video projects. It wasn’t long ago that you had to switch back to After Effects every time you wanted to make a slightly more complicated effect, and layer masking was one such task. But in this tutorial, we show you not only how to create a basic mask in Premiere, but also how to do the classic cloning effect with it. To top it all off, we also show off Premiere Pro’s ability to track your footage and have a layer mask follow a particular object. It’s amazing! So let’s get started!
Creating a Mask
In premiere pro, creating a mask is easy. Below the opacity section in your effect controls is three types of masking options: your ellipse, square, and pen tools. The ellipse will create a mask around your footage in a circular shape while the square will similarly create a square cut-out. Each of these will cut out the footage inside and allow the footage outside of the boundaries to remain. Simply clicking the “invert” option to the right of the mask options in your effect controls will reverse this.
The pen tool is different in that it allows for you to create your own mask shape by a “connect the dot” system. Each point at which you click will create a line connecting the shape as you progress. This gives you a great degree of freedom when choosing what you want to be included and excluded from your mask.
The Cloning Effect
This classic effect is one where the same object is visible in the same piece of footage as if it was duplicated or “cloned.” This is done by (typically) filming your subject on a tripod and, without moving the tripod, filming the subject in two locations. In premiere when you take each of these sections of footage and stack them on top of each other, you can drop the opacity to 50% to see both at the same time (slightly faded). This will allow you to move around the time of each of these clips in case timing is necessary.
Once this has been achieved, mask the top clip (preferably with the pen tool) and separate the section the area of footage where the one subject is located. When you bring opacity back up to 100% and ensure an inverted mask is not necessary, it should look as if your subject has been duplicated and has two copies in the same clip.
Tracking Your Mask
Premiere Pro now has the capability to do a basic track of your mask to follow objects. For our footage we have a clip of a stop sign that we have duplicated. By masking a basic ellipse around it and adding a mosaic effect to the top piece of footage, we can blur out our subject. This is useful if you need to blur things like license plates, faces, or addresses in your videos.
To track your mask simply take your playhead to the start of your clip and in your effect controls panel (beside mask path) you should see a variety of arrows. The typical “play” arrow button is your “track selected mask forward” option. By clicking this, premiere will begin the process of automatically detecting and keyframing your mask to follow the object it is placed over. It has greater success with some objects as opposed to others, but as a general rule it does a very good job.
Once Premier is finished processing your job is done! You’ve tracked your object and you mask now follows it around the screen. We hope you found this video helpful!
