Creating an X-Ray effect in Adobe Premiere pro

Is it possible to create an X-ray effect in Adobe Premiere Pro? Of course it is! And it’s not even that hard. We only need a green screen shot, for instance on a phone, a png image of a skull and of course a bit of creativity.

Let’s start with green screening our iphone shot, which you can easily do in Premiere Pro. Afterwards we place the skull image underneath that shot and use the invert effect on it. All we need is a clean plate to finish it off and there are multiple ways to do this. You can do it from within Premiere with a mask or you can use Adobe Photoshop. Like we did in the Freeze Frame Introduction tutorial.
