Tip #1226: Make Video Look Like a 3D Button
This is a fast way to add dimensionality to a 2D video.
There’s a little known effect in Premiere that can turn any video into a 3D button. While you wouldn’t use this in a background video, it can create interesting foreground effects. Here’s how it works.
- Select a clip – ideally, scale it to less than full screen.
- Apply Effects > Perspective > Bevel Alpha.
The default settings aren’t bad, but you can tweak them in Effect Controls. In this example, I increased the Edge Thickness a lot.
