How to Create a Hexagon in Premiere Pro CC (2023)

Shapes are an important part of creating effects in Adobe Premiere Pro. Luckily with the shape tool we have the ability to create easy circles and rectangles. What happens if we want to create a shape with more sides though? Today I am going to show you how to create a multi-sided shape in Adobe Premiere Pro.

How to Create a Multi-sided Shape in Premiere Pro.

  1. Import Background Footage:
    • Start by importing your background footage into Adobe Premiere Pro. This can be any video or image you want to use as the backdrop for your polygon.
  2. Access the Polygon Tool:
    • In Premiere Pro, navigate to the “polygon tool.” You can usually find this in the essential graphics panel.
  3. Draw a Polygon:
    • Use the polygon tool to draw a shape. By default, it starts as a triangle.
  4. Open Essential Graphics Panel:
    • To change the number of sides on the polygon, open the essential graphics panel. You can do this by going to “captions and graphics.”
  5. Adjust the Number of Sides:
    • In the essential graphics panel, you can find an option to adjust the number of sides of the polygon.
      • 2 sides create a straight line.
      • 3 sides give you a triangle.
      • 4 sides form a square.
      • 5 sides result in a pentagon.
      • 6 sides create a hexagon, and so on.
  6. Modify Polygon Shape:
    • After creating the polygon, you can make further modifications. These include:
      • Adjusting the length of sides.
      • Rounding the edges for a more natural look, which is helpful when adding text.
      • Tweaking the curvature of the edges.
  7. Create Custom Polygon Shapes:
    • If you hold the Alt key, you can manipulate each side individually. This allows you to create custom polygon shapes, such as teardrops or irregular polygons.
  8. Experiment with Polygon Sides:
    • You can choose the number of sides that best suits your project, typically ranging from 3 to 15 sides. Experiment to achieve the desired look.
  9. Finalize Your Polygon:
    • Once you’re satisfied with the polygon’s shape and appearance, you’re ready to use it in your project.
  10. Additional Comments or Questions:
    • If you have any questions or need further assistance, you can leave them in the comment section below the video on the Adobe Masters website.
