Part 1:How to Make Camera Shake in Premiere

Step 1: Firstly, you need to use the footages to create a sequence on which you wish to add the camera shake in Premiere. Once done, add an online shaken clip or any part of the footage of your own that is not stabilized and a bit camera shaken clip. Add this shaken clip above the tripod shot.

Step 2: Both the shaken and the sequence footages must be cut into the same length, highlighted, and nest it by right-clicking and going to the “nest”. When your sequence is ready, go to the Effects tab. It will reach you to the warp stabilizer VFX. Drag it over the nested sequence. Now, from Effects Control, go to Warp Stabilizer to select the scale, position and rotation method. Open both pieces of footage sequence by double-clicking on the nested footage.

Step 3: Check the left part of the timeline to look for eyeballs. The eyeball that connects with the camera shake footage must be clicked to make the footage invisible and leave it with just the tripod shot. Next, going back to the nested shot, you can find the warp stabilizer applied to your tripod shot. This is how you can create the Premiere pro shake effect.
