We’ll also add a nice bit of cinematic camera movement to the clip in After Effects and wrap up the whole tutorial in less than 10 minutes! Hope you enjoy it!

Site Exclusive Tutorial Recording Notes:
Disclaimer: these are the actual notes I used to record this video and are written in a language you may or may not understand. Hopefully, you find them useful or cool.
- Create a new Composition at the video size where we want to work.
- I’m going ultra widescreen with this shot so my comp will be 3360×1440 (21:9 ratio)
- At 30fps, my 687 frames equals nearly 23 seconds of finished footage so I’ll set this comp to 23 seconds
- Go File>Import>File… and find where I have the files stashed
- Organize the files by type and select the first one and tick on “Camera Raw Sequence”
- Choose to open, preview the image in the Camera RAW editor and hit OK
- You will now have a file in your Project panel that says 001-687.CR2 or something similar
- Drag this sequence out onto the composition to place it
- Select it in the layers panel and hit “S” to bring upscaling options and scale this down until it is just a little larger than the composition
- Scale the zoom so it slowly moves in or out over the full 23 seconds for a long and very slow/smooth cinematic camera movement
- Select both keyframes and do an Easy Ease In
- Move the In/Out points to the beginning and end of the clip
- Add the video to the render queue and export it!
