To create the double exposure, search for two video clips on Adobe Stock.
The first clip will be used as the outline. It should have a nearly solid background, which will make masking it much easier. We selected a silhoutte of a surfer.
The second clip will be used as the double exposure overlay. We selected a slow motion shot of waves breaking on the beach.
Once you have your two clips, import them from either the Library panel in Premiere Pro (if saved in a folder), or upload directly from your computer.
To create the double exposure, place your outline video clip on track 4 and your overlay video track on layer 2:
- Add the threshold filter to track 4. You’ll find this filter in your Effects Control panel in Video Effects > Stylize > Threshold
- Add the Track Matte Key to video track 2. You’ll find it in Video Effects > Keying > Track Matte Key
- Open your Effects Control panel with track 2 selected in your sequence. Reveal the Track Matte Key effect controls
- In the “Matte” dropdown box, select “Video 4” and place a check in the box labeled “Reverse” in order to invert the effect
Select File > New > Color Matte to create a new color matte in your project. Drag this into your sequence on Video 1.
Duplicate your overlay video from track 2 onto track 3. In the Effects Panel, in the Opacity effect controls, change the Blend Mode to Screen.
This helps bring some texture detail back to the overlay.
Select Clip > Nest to nest your clips into a new sequence. In that new sequence, select Sequence > Sequence Settings and change your dimensions to 1080x1080 for use on social.
If you’d like to add a custom element to your video, you can search within Adobe Stock for a graphic template to add a custom brand element to your video. Choose Window > Workspaces > Graphics.
Select Windows > Essential Graphics and click on the Edit tab.
Here you can customize all of your graphic elements including font, size, colors, style, and more.
Select File > Export.
- Under your file name, select H.264 for your format and Facebook 1080p Full HD for your preset
- Choose your destination by clicking on the blue file path. Click the green play arrow in the upper-right corner to start the export cue
You’re now ready to share your custom-branded double exposure video across your social media channels!
