I want to create a solid color "video" segment in my overall video. In iMovie I can add it by importing a background. I don't see any such feature in Premiere Pro.

How do I add a black (or other color) solid color background to my timeline?

1 Answer 1

  1. In the workspaces panel, right-click the background and choose New Item > Color Matte...
  2. You can then select any color you want.

See Easily Create a Solid Color Background in Premier Pro 2019 for more details.

  • From the same menu, there is also the option of "Black Video" which does the job instantly. Mar 10, 2021 at 20:05
