Laser Eye Teddy Bear Adobe Premiere Tutorial

Let's learn the very basics of animations in Adobe Premiere and make a teddy bear shoot laser beams out of its eyes.

  Author: mat | Version: CS5 | 5th January 2012 |  

Click here to download the video clip used in this tutorial.

Right click the link and choose Save as...

Open Adobe Premiere, create a new project,  import the downloaded clip by pressing Ctrl + I, then select the clip and open it.


Click and hold the imported clip ...


... and drag and drop it to the Video 1 timeline (see picture).


In the timeline go to 2:15 seconds (see picture).


Teddy bear is now lock and loaded and ready to shoot some laser beams.


Right click the grey area under the imported clip, click New Item and choose Title...


Enter a name and click OK.


In the newly opened window, choose the Line Tool.


Draw a line, going from teddy's eyes to the right edge of clip (see picture).


The line you just draw should remain selected.

Choose an effect, to make the line look more like a laser.

We could tweak the settings for a more realistic effect but let's leave it for some other tutorial.


Close the window.


Now click and hold the Laser you just created ...


... and drag and drop it to Video 2 timeline (see picture).


Now click the Effect Controls tab, go to Video Effects and Motion then click Toggle animation (see picture).


Go to 4:02 seconds.


Now click and move the laser line toward the teddy bear's eyes.

We just made the laser beam more dynamic.


Shorten the Video 2 (Laser) so the right edge sticks to the red line.

Just click and drag the right edge towards left side.


Let's add an effect to the laser beam so it appears and disappears more gradually.

Click the Effects tab, Video Transitions, Dissolve and click Cross Dissolve ...


... then drag and drop it to the beginning of the Laser (see picture).


Shorten the Cross Dissolve effect by clicking and dragging the right edge a bit to the left (see picture).


Add the Cross Dissolve effect to the end of the Laser the same way you did it on the beginning side.

Don't forget to shorten it as well.


And you are done!

Hope you undestood the basics of adding animations and effects, you could try and do something using your own video clips and then showcase it in our Forum, if you dare to ;)
