Tips for Using Neon Effects in Your Premiere Pro Videos
Is this your first time working with neon in video? If so, here are a few pointers to help you use neon effects effectively:
Keep Colours to a Minimum
While in the creative flow, it's easy to want to keep adding fun, vibrant colors. But trust me, just one or two works best. Your neon effects will still catch the eyes of viewers. You'll also have the added benefit of keeping attention on your content.
Avoid White Backgrounds
There's a reason why we normally see neon signs at night when we go outside. The dark highlights the bright colors, and that's why darker backgrounds work so well when you're working in Premiere Pro. A white or light color backdrop won't let your neon effect stand out at all
Use Neon in Isolation
Neon is a pretty dominant look, often with bright colors and dynamic movement. On its own, the result is incredible. But combining it with other effects looks messy. When working with neon effects, it's best to let them shine on their own.
Less is More
A hint of neon can work much better than using it across everything on screen. There are opportunities to be clever when using neon sparingly. You can pull attention to different areas of the frame and direct the story you are telling your audience.
