How to use glass textures in video
Now that you have some glass textures downloaded to your computer, where do you start and how do you use them?
You can start by using the glass textures as overlays and backgrounds in your videos. You can use these textures in the Screen and Multiply blending modes in Premiere Pro or FCPX. You can also try the textures with Luma Matte or Alpha to construct cool titles.
If you plan to use glass textures in Premiere Pro as overlays, follow these easy steps:
- Import your footage into Premiere Pro.
- Import the glass overlay of your choice.
- Position your clip into the timeline.
- Position the glass overlay on top of your footage.
- Select your glass overlay.
- In the Effects tab, go to Opacity and toggle Blend Modes.
- Select Overlay and your glass overlay will be transparent on top of your clip.
- Copy the glass overlay clip and paste along your timeline.
If you have plans to do some animations in, say, After Effects, the glass textures will be useful to that end. Follow this video tutorial to learn how to do that.
