Turn a Photo into a Moving 3D Image | Premiere Pro Tutorial

Working with 2D still photos can be a dread from time to time, as there is no real motion. In this Adobe Premiere Tutorial, we will turn a photo into a moving image. This effect is very easy and use parallex techniques to make our photo come to life. We make a specific focus into creating depth and adding multiple layers. We talk able animation and 3D effects to add dimensional rotation. Finally, we look at how to separate objects from the background.

LYTE Yearz says:

Great tut bro but please remember we are learning. When you speak in one long run on sentence it actually doesn’t give us a break to absorb information. Yes I know we can hit pause but an even better way would be to say a step, then maybe say a few words purposely irrelevant to the video and then continue. It would help process what you’re saying a lot better. I teach people how to get started with new DAWS. I was told this helps big time. Please don’t take any of the that the wrong way. Your effort is definitely appreciated!
