Get the Gun FX from our CinePacks Store to Create a Realistic Shootout Scene in Adobe Premiere Pro

July 11, 2020

Whether you’re planning an epic shootout scene for your next film or just need some cool gun effects for a music video, you definitely need the Gun FX from the CinePacks store! This is one of our best video packs yet; it contains over 100 4K assets that include animated video effects and video transitions for Adobe Premiere Pro, as well as overlays, sound effects, and much more. (There’s also a free pack of these video effects so you can download and use a sample completely free of charge!) Discover how to use these video effects in Adobe Premiere Pro.

Once you’ve purchased, downloaded the Gun FX pack, you’ll see two zipped folders. Unzip them using a program like 7-Zip or WinRAR (probably not needed if you’re using a Mac). The first folder contains Bullet Holes, Muzzle Flashes, and Pistols. The second folder contains Ammo, Gun sound effects, M16, and Uzi. Drag all of the folders into Adobe Premiere Pro (no plugin needed!).

Since these animated assets are already transparent, you can drag them directly into your timeline above your footage. Right click the video effect and select “Scale to Frame Size” if needed. Hold down the Alt key to duplicate the looping video effect to your desired duration. You can then nest the duplicated effects together by selecting all of them, right clicking, and choosing “Nest.” Once the duplicated video effects are nested into one clip, you can scale and reposition however you’d like.

To use the animated bullet holes video effect, drop your chosen effect on top of your footage. You can edit the effect by using tools like Horizontal Flip or Vertical Flip (Under Video Effects → Transform). 

Continue browsing the rest of these video effects in Adobe Premiere Pro to see how they pair with your footage. We have animated guns and bullets in all styles and colors, as well as a variety of sound effects.

To use the animated gun video transitions in Adobe Premiere Pro, drag it into your timeline on top of your two different clips. We’re going to give it a more realistic appearance by making a cut in your first clip right where the video transition begins. Select this short clip and draw a simple mask around the area you’d like to preserve. Keyframe your mask path so that it wipes across the screen to reveal the next video clip.  

Customize our gun video effects to your liking! Select your clip, then add Color Balance (HLS) (under Video Effects → Color Correction) and adjust the sliders as desired.

To create a realistic shootout scene, drag a muzzle flash video effect on top of your footage where a gun is fired. Scale and position the muzzle flash over the gun and adjust the contrast, exposure, speed, and other settings as needed to make it look more realistic. Adding a Directional Blur (under Video Effects → Blur and Sharpen) will also help sell the effect. 

Choose a gun sound effect that sounds the most authentic and align it with your footage. Add a Shell Casing effect after the gunshot, using your keyframes to add motion as needed. 

Continue to adjust the lighting by adding a new Adjustment Layer to your footage. Turn up the exposure, eliminate some shadows, and make the temperature warmer. Create a mask around the area where the lighting would be affected from the gunshot (in our footage, we’re creating a mask around the shooter’s arm and part of his upper body) and add some Feather to it. Fade the adjustment layer out quickly.
