Adobe’s Premiere Pro is one of the most popular video editing applications in the world. Like most non-linear editors, though, Premiere Pro can seem very overwhelming to new users, especially when it comes to effects. In this new video series, Justin Odisho is on a mission to go over every single effect available in Premiere Pro.

Each video goes over a different group of effects available natively in the effects panel of Premiere Pro. He takes a deep dive into each of the effects to explain exactly how they work and what each of the options available to them does.

Justin explains the process of “Every Effect Explained” in the introduction video. Not surprisingly, it’s the first video in the playlist at the top of this page. Just uses the introduction to show you how his workspace is set, and how to find the effects panel if you can’t see it. He also goes over the default effects that are applied to each clip when you place them onto your sequence timeline.

The rest of the videos in the series each go through a different group of effects available through the effects panel. So far, Justin is up to Part 8 in his series, covering various commonly used effects, such as blur and sharpening, colour correction, channels & blending, distorting and more.

Whether you’re a beginner or even a more advanced user, if you’re not already familiar with all of the effects available to you in Premiere Pro, it’s well worth having a watch of the series so far and keeping an eye out for future videos. You never know when that obscure effect you didn’t even know existed might just save your bacon in an edit.

How well do you know all of Premiere Pro’s effects?

    I’ll start by saying Justin Odisho’s videos are great and I’ve watched a ton of them.

    However… good luck trying to use any of the effects in Premiere. The program crashes anytime you want to add simple effects into your timeline. If I was working on old hardware or an outdated machine, I can expect a few downfalls, however I work with A BRAND NEW MAC PRO SPEC’D OUT FOR 4K VIDEO EDITING. ADOBE IS A WASTE OF MONEY. All they do is push out rushed updates riddled with bugs that only introduce useless gimmicky features, while they ignore the instability of the program overall. Premiere crashes every 20 minutes when trying to do any sort of heavy lifting and users are leaving in droves because ADOBE DOES NOT CARE ABOUT ITS CUSTOMERS OR THE ISSUES WE CONSTANTLY HAVE TO DEAL WITH. ALL THEY CARE ABOUT IS COLLECTING YOUR SUBSCRIPTION FEES.

    SAVE YOURSELF THE WASTED TIME AND HEADACHES AND USE DAVINCI RESOLVE FOR FREE

      To be fair, the last “Brand New Mac Pro” was released in 2013 and is fairly underpowered compared to the current crop of PCs and iMacs. The program does not crash when effects are added to my own projects, or working for more than 20 minutes, so I’d love to know more about your workflow (besides the 6 year old Mac you’re using) and how you configure, maintain, and operate Premiere Pro.

      I would not recommend the free version of Resolve either. GPU acceleration is not even available with that version.

      With the all caps message, it sounds like you’re pretty upset. Give the folks at Adobe support or get a forum post up. Hopefully, they can help you.
