Smooth Movement – Guide

  1. Get a hold of an MP3 track or your choice – we used Hold Back the River by James Bay.
  2. Then film the scene, quite far away from the subject and with a variety of angles.
  3. Import the footage into Premiere Pro, with the track.
  4. Once everything is imported, make sure the footage is in time with the music, if you filmed someone playing on an instrument, like we did.
  5. Double click on the video preview and make the image bigger, as if you have zoomed in.
  6. Then using the “Motion” option in the “Effects Control” panel create sequences whilst moving the image across the screen, to give it the illusion of smooth panning/movement.
  7. Render and export the video when you’re happy with it.
