Use the effect masking tools to create quick vignettes in Premiere Pro!The effect masking tools in the latest version of Premiere are super powerful. An obvious use is to create face blurs, but it can be used for so much more!vIn previous versions of Premiere, one of the only ways to create a vignette effect without buying a third-party plugin was to create a vignette in SpeedGrade, save it as a preset, and import it using the Lumetri engine (you can read more about this process here). With the effect masking tools in the latest version, you can do this using a simple Luma Curves effect!We’ll start with this image that we want to put a vignette on:Next, we’ll add a Luma Curve effect:We’ll add a point and increase the contrast by pulling it down a little, then we’ll click the “Create Elliptical Mask” button on the effect:Clicking “Create Elliptical Mask” will add an oval mask that you can see and interact with in the Program Monitor, which limits the effect to that area:To create our vignette, we’ll set the feather to around 400, check the “Inverted” box so that the effect is applied outside the mask, not inside, and we’ll click and drag the points of the mask in the Program Monitor to be close to the edges of the frame:There you have it! It’s super easy, and uses just the built-in tools of Premiere:Unfortunately, you can’t save mask setting with effect presets, so you’ll have to set it up each time you want to create a vignette. On the plus side, you can now adjust and control your vignette setting right in Premiere, and it’s super fast to set up!Here are a few more Premiere Pro tips.

He’s into the Australian Open quarterfinals for the fourth time. And he’s achieved that from a tough part of the draw.He opened with a win over the enigmatic Nick Kyrgios, who had all the home-won support, and followed that up by coming back to beat three-time major winner Stan Wawrinka in four tiebreak sets. The 16th-seeded Raonic then beat Pierre-Hugues Herbert in three tiebreakers.At 28, Raonic feels like he’s on the verge of being back as a contender at the majors. Zverev, an undoubted talent, is yet to beat a top 20 player at a Grand Slam.Raonic was so consistent with his serve — 15 aces, one double-fault, 16 of 19 first serves into play for the second set — and kept his unforced error count down to 24 for the match. He said he could sense his rival’s growing rage.“It was pretty clear what was going on,” he said. “It can have an effect a lot of different ways. You know, if you’re a top guy and you do that against somebody who doesn’t have experience, it might sort of cause them to retreat a little bit.ADVERTISEMENT “I wasn’t really sure what to do at a point. I just try to stick in there,” Osaka said. “And also I was watching all these kids winning, like, last night Tsitsipas beat Federer and I was like, ‘Woah’ — so I decided I wanted to do well, too.′Another win now and there’s potential for Osaka to have a rematch of the U.S. Open final against Serena Williams. The seven-time Australian Open champion Williams was playing top-ranked Simona Halep later Monday in the fourth round. The winner of the Williams-Halep contest will meet seventh-seeded Karolina Pliskova, who beat Garbine Muguruzu 6-3, 6-1 in an hour.Pliskova, who is on a nine-match winning streak, plans to watch on TV: “For sure, it’s going to be the match of the tournament so far.”Osaka will be concentrating more now on Svitolina.Coming off a win at the WTA Finals, Svitolina is aiming to do what Caroline Wozniacki did last year and follow up a title at the season-ending championship with a breakthrough major in Australia.For a quarter of an hour on Day 8, Svitolina served and served, and served, tossing the ball into the sun, in a desperate bid to hold a game in the third set against Keys.After that huge hold, she broke the 17th-seeded Keys’ serve in at her first opportunity in the next game, and it was all one-way from then on.“I was happy I could handle the pressure at 1-1 in the third set,” Svitolina said. “It was very hard because the sun was just burning my eyes when I was tossing the ball. Very happy I could win that game.”She’s taking an 0-3 record in Grand Slam quarterfinals into her next match against Osaka, but is taking a different mindset into the match.Winning in Singapore “gave me huge boost of confidence, so I don’t think about the past anymore,” she said. “I only look forward.” View comments Grace Poe files bill to protect govt teachers from malicious accusations Lacson backs proposal to elect president and vice president in tandem LATEST STORIES Oil plant explodes in Pampanga town Private companies step in to help SEA Games hosting Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

(AP Photo/Kin Cheung)MELBOURNE, Australia — Milos Raonic was just overwhelming Alexander Zverev with consistency, compounding the frustration with every service break.Roanic dropped serve in the opening game of their fourth-round match at the Australian Open but then went on a roll, winning eight straight games before fourth-seeded Zverev held serve.ADVERTISEMENT SEA Games hosting troubles anger Duterte MOST READ No let up.

Proud of that.” Oil plant explodes in Pampanga town “I have sort of faced that situation, and I was also ahead at that point, so I was just really focusing on myself.”Zverev got the inevitable warning for racket abuse, took a break at the end of the second set and returned from the locker room a much calmer, more composed player.“Yeah, it made me feel better,” Zverev said. “I was very angry, so I let my anger out.”Zverev lost only one point in his first four service games in the third set, but then Raonic stepped up the pressure again.“I played bad. The first two sets especially I played horrible,” Zverev said. “I mean, it’s just tough to name one thing. I didn’t serve well, didn’t play well from the baseline. Against a quality player like him, it’s tough to come back from that.”Zverev saved two match points in the 10th game of the third — one with a short slice backhand that Roanic ran for but couldn’t retrieve to end a 29-shot rally and another that clipped the baseline.But Raonic rallied from 3-1 down in the tiebreaker and finally converted on his fourth match point. He’ll next play either No. 11 Borna Coric or No. 28 Lucas Pouille in the quarterfinals.Earlier U.S. Open Naomi Osaka was a set down again and looking for a bit of inspiration.She thought of how 20-year-old Stefanos Tsitsipas had stunned 20-time major winner Roger Federer and how Frances Tiafoe has advanced to the quarterfinals for the first time. This helped her pull herself together to reach the last eight, too.No. 4-seeded Osaka had a 4-6, 6-3, 6-4 fourth-round win over No. 13-seeded Anastasija Sevastova to reach the last eight at a major for the second time. She’ll next play sixth-seeded Elina Svitolina, who fended off five break points in a game in the third set that went to deuce 11 times, contained 28 points, and was pivotal in a momentum-swinging 6-2, 1-6, 6-1 win over 2017 U.S. Open finalist Madison Keys.

BOSTON — The door to the visiting team’s penalty box had scarcely slammed shut before the official was opening it again for another Carolina Hurricanes player to serve his punishment.Penalty. Goal.Penalty. Goal.Twenty-eight seconds apart, Marcus Johansson and Patrice Bergeron scored on power plays during a four-goal outburst as Boston rallied from a third-period deficit to beat Carolina 5-2 on Thursday night in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals.“We took advantage of our power plays early, and that’s huge,” said Bruins forward Charlie Wagner, who skated in alone on Petr Mrazek with 2:02 left to clinch it. “We tied it up pretty quick there, and I think we kept our foot on the gas for the most part.”Boston Bruins’ Brad Marchand (63) raises his stick as Carolina Hurricanes goaltender Petr Mrazek (34), of the Czech Republic, drops to the ice after a goal by Patrice Bergeron during the third period in Game 1 of the NHL hockey Stanley Cup Eastern Conference finals Thursday, May 9, 2019, in Boston. (AP Photo/Charles Krupa)Boston trailed 2-1 before capitalizing on back-to-back power plays about three minutes into the third period. With about three minutes left in the game, the Bruins scored two more: One on Brandon Carlo’s deflected, slow-rolling empty netter, and then 11 seconds later on Wagner’s unassisted goal that made it 5-2.“We were fortunate to only be down one goal, and then when you get those chances on the power play, you’ve got to make them pay,” said Tuukka Rask, who stopped 29 shots. “Today, we did.”Back in the net for the first time since Game 2 of the second-round series against the Islanders, Mrazek made 23 saves for the Hurricanes. Curtis McElhinney finished off New York, but coach Rod Brind’Amour went back to Mrazek when he was clear by doctors after the five-day break between series.“Petr was fine,” Brind’Amour said. “We left him out to dry there at the end.”Steven Kampfer, starting for suspended defenseman Charlie McAvoy, also scored for Boston — his first career postseason goal — with about three minutes gone in the game. Sebastian Aho and Greg McKegg scored for Carolina.It was still 2-1 when Jordan Staal was sent off for roughing in the opening minute of the third period. Johansson slammed home a rebound of Brad Marchand’s shot to tie it, and just 15 seconds later the Bruins were back on the power play when Dougie Hamilton was given 2 minutes for roughing.Boston set up in the Hurricane’s zone, Jake DeBrusk sent the puck across the ice to Marchand, who tipped it back into the slot for Bergeron, and he slid it through Mrazek’s pads to make it 3-1.Carolina coach Rod Brind’Amour called his timeout to settle things down. But Hamilton, a former Boston first-round draft pick picked up another penalty less than three minutes later.The Bruins failed to score, but the crowd taunted the former Bruin.“I don’t really care,” he said. “They’ve chanted my name before, so for me it is what it is. Obviously, it was unfortunate I was in the box and taking those penalties.”THE BIGGER THEY AREBruins captain Zdeno Chara took a wrist shot from Aho off the right foot late in the first period and left for the locker room, but he was back in the second.The shot hit Chara on the outside of his right foot and the 6-foot-9 defenseman buckled over and went to the ice. He struggled to make it to the bench, and once he got there he was in obvious pain. He missed the rest of the first period but returned for the start of the second.Boston was already without Chara’s defense partner, with McAvoy suspended one game for a shoulder to the head of Columbus forward Josh Anderson. McAvoy was averaging a team-high 24:26 ice time, and Chara was third.Chara finished with 19:24, third-most for Boston in the game. He did not appear to be limping when he left the arena.AHO THEREAho led the Hurricanes with 38 goals and 83 assists in the regular season, but he was even better against Boston. In three games, he had four goals and three assists.In his first career playoffs, Aho now has five goals and 10 points in 12 games.McKegg scored when he shot the puck off Rask’s shoulder and then barreled into the goalie as the puck bounced behind him and into the net. A review confirmed that the puck crossed the line before McKegg ran into Rask.NOTES: The franchises met in the playoffs for the fifth time, with two of those coming before the Hartford Whalers moved to Raleigh in 1997. Boston is 3-1. … The Hurricanes reassigned forward Patrick Brown and defenseman Jake Bean to the Charlotte Checkers of the AHL.UP NEXTGame 2 is Sunday at 3 p.m.By: Jimmy Golen, AP Sports WriterTweetPinShare0 Shares

It’s not all the time easy.
