How To Do Ken Burns Effect In Premiere Pro

Welcome back to the Ingaf Filmmaking Tutorials and yes I know you’re here because the title said free, so not to disappoint here is another filmmaking freebie, the Kens Burns Effect Presets for Premiere Pro. In my one man mission to bankrupt Pete by giving all his camera gear away, I’m adding the pressure by continuing to make free presets, templates and downloads for you the fellow filmmaking cheapskates. 

This weeks preset is a set of fake camera movements known as The Ken Burns Effect. This is very simply the process of creating the illusion of camera movement in your still images to add a level of dynamics when using JPG images in your videos. In truth it’s a fairly simply effect to achieve, but I know you’re all here as you’re like Pete and lazy at heart, so this preset does the heavy lifting for you.

So make sure you’ve got the preset downloaded from our website, it’s totally free, but be sure you sign up to the email newsletter so I can fill your inbox full of watermelon spam. Not really, it’ll be loads more of freebies and filmmaking giveaways and the occasional picture of Pete’s face.

Your unzipped folder will contain one Premiere Pro preset file, you can put this somewhere safe if you wish. Heading over to Premiere Pro you need to import the effects. This is done in the effect bin, right click ‘Import Preset’ and select the downloaded preset file. 

This will then import a folder filled to the brim with movement options. They’re all fairly clearly labelled, because I’m nice like that, but if you’re unsure just drag and drop them onto your image file to see how it looks. 

The one thing I really love about these presets is that we made them to be variable length, meaning that the fake camera movement will be bound to the length of your clip in the timeline. If you extend the length of your clip and then drop and drop your preset onto it, the length of the movement will match the length of the clip.  

And it’s as simply as that. A simply fake camera movement effect made even easier by our free preset, aren’t we kind. The link is of course below to download this preset and whilst you’re down there be sure to pay us back with a thumbs up or even by hitting subscribe as we’ll dropping more freebies every week… how exciting!
