Cupcake Catharsis (Premiere Pro Animation)

Ever get an idea you just can’t let go of? Well, in the process of working on our next Premiere Pro tutorial we got a little side-tracked. The result… for good or bad… is “Cupcake Catharsis”, a Premiere Pro animation.

And, truth be told, we also wanted to jump on the YouTube Shorts train.

One royalty free stock photo. A copyright free music clip. And an irate, but awesome, dancing cupcake. Animated entirely in Adobe Premiere Pro 2020. No After Effects. No motion graphics templates. But a boatload of keyframes, way too many stacked video tracks, and a surprising number of masked and nested clips.
