How do I change the background color. i.e. The background for all of my stills by default is black. I need a white background for my jpegs stills that are black so people can se where the image ends?
Can you switch the background to white? How do I do this?
How do you create a white "color matte" in Premiere Pro?
Should I just place my black jpeg in a photoshop white background and re-crop it and place that as a still and fit to frame?
This is done from the New icon.
There is another method for doing backgrounds for stills, that you might want to explore - create an abstract background for them to display against. This also works where one has vertical images, and they do not want to Crop.
Should the abstract background idea seem useful, here is a little TUTORIAL and it includes even animating the transition from a recognizable image to the abstract background for use with still images.
