Vector graphics are great to use when you don’t know the size you want the graphic to be. With vector graphics, the image is saved as series of points and equations. These equations draw the image depending on the size. This means no matter the size the vector image will never blur or pixelate. Vector images therefore are great for scaling, animation, and multi-purpose uses. Premiere Pro recently added support for vector graphics through vector motion controls. Today I show you how to use vector motion controls in Adobe Premiere Pro CC.
How to Use Vector Motion Controls in Adobe Premiere Pro CC
- Create a new sequence, or navigate to the sequence you want to add the graphics layer to.
- Create a graphics layer through one of the shape tools, or the text tool.
- Click on the graphics layer in the sequence, and then go up to effect controls.
- Now look inside for “Vector Motion”
- Adjust any of the settings in “Vector Motion” to create a vector transformation.
- This will insure the graphic remains crisp no matter the transformation you give it.
It’s that simple. Adobe put it right in the common workflow. The only change you really need to make is to use the vector motion tab instead of the regular motion tab. After that, Adobe does the rest.
