With a little strategic use of effects, this is easy to pull off in Adobe Premiere Pro CC. Today, we go over how to make your footage look like a painting in Adobe Premiere Pro CC.

How to Make Your Footage Look Like a Painting in Adobe Premiere Pro CC.

  1. Go into project. Go up to file->new->adjustment layer.
  2. Drag adjustment layer onto footage & extend out to fit the duration of your sequence.
  3. Click on the adjustment layer and select effects – go into video effects, stylize
    1. Locate find edges, drag and drop, change the blend mode to multiple
    2. Locate posterize, drag and drop, adjust the level to 22 (colors are now degraded)
  4. These effects are CPU intensive, so they can create a little lag. Click enter key and it will begin rendering out. This will allow you to play it at real time.
  5. Go back in to effects and locate the brush strokes effect. Drag it onto the adjustment layer. I adjusted the stroke length to 11 and made brush size to 2.9
  6. You will probably have to render again after this.

There you have it. With those 3 effects you can make your footage look like a moving painting. A fun thing to do is slowly transition these effects out over time to make it go from painting back to normal.
