In this #timelinetuesday tutorial I am showing you how to do a circle crop / mask in Adobe Premiere Pro, this is useful for lower thirds or a nicer picture in picture instead of using a simple square or rectangle.
There are two method, one is with the opacity mask which I do not recommend or prefer as it has the least control over and not able replicate the shape perfect each time.
The method I prefer is to generate a circle with the circle effect which has full control of the radius size and also the positioning and enable you to perfectly replicate circle crop each time, making multiple lower thirds to be the same.
