Vingette in PP - Mercury friendly

I have found a couple way to add a vinette to video in preimere pro but all of them require a red line render.

I am curious to know if there are any MPE friendly way to make one?

Thanks!

I can't answer, but I'm curious as to why you don't want to render?

You might want to add which MPE it is; software-only, OpenCL, or CUDA.

i don't want to render because I want to preview it in real time

Which methods have you tried?

Seems like I can do it without a red bar this way:
  1. New title (Name it something like "vignette")
  2. Draw a rectangle using the rectangle tool
  3. Change the fill type to radial gradient
  4. Make the left colour white, and the right colour black or a shade of grey
  5. Adjust these to get the size that you desire
  6. Close the titler window and drag the title to the timeline above your video
  7. Click the title
  8. Click the effect controls tab
  9. Click opacity
  10. Set the blend mode to "multiply" (Or one that looks how you want it; "colour burn" looks different)
  11. Adjust the opacity to get the darkness of vignette you desire

If you want to adjust the size, double click the title and adjust the colour sliders.

If you still get a red bar, maybe CS6 or above has changed (I tried this using CS5.5) or you don't have CUDA turned on.

Siderz method is great, and it works for me (granted im on a loaded mac pro)

Have you tried to reduce the quality of play black to view it real time?

Try dropping to 1/2 quality to help with playback. Yes the quality will go down but at least you can play in real time.

Also, here is a site that has some decent plug ins. Once of them is vignette.

It gives you complete control of vignettes.. as for playback that varies by the rig you have setup.

a simple vignette will not force you to render to see it in real time, even with a red bar over the timeline. read Adobe's official explanation of the colored bars to get an idea of what they really mean (basically they are not hard indicators of rendering) do what another poster mentioned and drop your preview resolution down to 1/2 or 1/4. i never leave it on full for instant playbacks anyway.

simple vignette - make a solid black layer in photoshop, rectangular based on your video frame size (theres even presets for video frame sizes in photoshop when creating a new document). now take the ellipse selection tool, create an oval that just barely touches the top, bottom and side edges of the rectangle. then either go to "selection - feather" or "refine edge" and adjust your edge feathering to give you a very gradual gradient. alternately, you could use the gaussian blur on the selection. theres plenty of ways to do this.


once you have a black rectangle with a feathered oval cut out from the middle, save it as a TIFF or PNG so your transparency remains outside of photoshop.

import the file to your Premiere project, put it in the timeline on the track above your video, set your transparency to something between 10-20% depending on the effect you want. also play around with layer modes, like multiply, overlay, soft light, etc.

its a good idea to have a folder of various "mattes" like this for future use as either vignettes, track mattes, or general blank video tracks.

PERFECT!!! Love it!!!
Works like a gem and I can stay in PP to do the edits. AAAAAWESOME.
