SpeedGrade CC is a powerful color grading system with a streamlined interface and in this course I will show you how to work with the SpeedGrade workflow directly from Premiere Pro.


Extending the Power of Premiere Pro: Direct Link to Adobe SpeedGrade

To learn more, I’ve created an exciting course called Premiere Pro: Creative Cloud Updates, for Lynda.com

Topics in this course include:

  • Switching between audio waveforms and video

  • Working with different camera formats
  • Selecting and nudging clips
  • Using dupe-detection markers
  • Copying and pasting ranges

Smart Rendering in Adobe Premiere Pro

smartrenderinga

This article is from the new website — Creative Cloud User

The latest version of Adobe Premiere Pro CC adds some real power under the hood. When it comes to export your final project, you can often take advantage of Smart Rendering. To use this feature is pretty simple.
  • Use a media format that supports smart rendering.
  • Put that media into a a sequence with matching settings. This is easy to do by simply right-clicking on a clip and choosing New Sequence From Clip.
  • Export to a self-contained file that matches the same format. This can be done by checking the Match Sequence Settings box in the Export dialog.

Additionally, if you’ve gone the extra step of setting up a sequence and set the preview format to matches the source material, you’re in luck. Just choose the "Use Preview Files" option an Adobe Premiere Pro will also attempt to smart render the preview files during export.

Whenever possible, Adobe Premiere Pro will query each asset during the export. It will check to see if the asset can be smart rendered. If it can, then the app will use it. If not, then regular rendering kicks in. The good news is that Smart Rendering is fairly automatic and if you work with a primary format that’s supported, you can see some real gains in productivity.

These formats are supported:
  • DV
  • DVCPRO
  • DVCPRO HD
  • XDCAM HD (in OP1a MXF format)
  • XDCAM EX (in MP4 within BPAV folder structure)
  • AVC-I (in OP1a MXF format)
  • DNxHD (in OP1a MXF format)
  • DNxHD (in QuickTime)
  • ProRes (in QuickTime)
  • Animation (in QuickTime)

Making Your Mark in Adobe Premiere Pro

essentialeditmarks
As you work in the timeline or source window, you’ll come to rely upon In and Out points to accurately edit. These two points can clearly define which part of a clip you want to use, what section of the timeline you want to replace, or where to remove footage.

Here are the most essential editing shortcut commands:

  • In—Press I to add an In point.
  • Out—Press O to add an Out point.
  • Clear In—Option+I (Alt+I) to clear an In point.
  • Clear Out—Option+O (Alt+O) to clear an Out point.
  • Clear In and Out—Option+X (Alt+X) to clear both an In and Out point
  • Go to In—Shift+I to go to an In point
  • Go to Out—Shift+O to go to an Out point
  • Lift—Press ; (semicolon key) to remove the media between the In and Out point and leave a gap.
  • Extract—Press ‘ (apostrophe key) to remove the media between the In and Out point and close the gap.

Changing the Audio Mix in Adobe Premiere Pro from the Keyboard

Audio_Gain
A popular shortcut in Final Cut Pro is the ability to increase or decrease audio levels with a keyboard shortcut. The closest you can come in Adobe Premiere Pro is a little customization. Choose Premiere Pro > Keyboard Shortcuts (Edit>Keyboard Shortcuts). In the search field enter Audio Gain. Map this command to an easy to remember shortcut (like Ctrl + =). Now you can press it to bring up the Audio Gain dialog box. The new dialog already has the Adjust Gain by field selected. Just enter a number and press Return or Enter. Yes, it's two steps instead of one, but its also more flexible.

Importing From Prelude to Adobe Premiere Pro

A companion application in the Adobe Creative Suite is Adobe Prelude. This application can be used to organize footage in a simple, streamlined interface. The use of Adobe Prelude is beyond the scope of this book, but you will find extensive coverage in the application’s documentation on how to use it and best practices for organizing clips. Adobe Prelude is designed so producers or assistants can quickly ingest, log, and even transcode media for tapeless workflows.
If you have an Adobe Prelude Project, here’s how to send it to Adobe Premiere Pro.

PPCS6_Ch03_-004


  1. Launch Adobe Prelude.
  2. Open the project you want to transfer.
  3. Switch to Adobe Premiere Pro and make sure the project that you want to receive the media is open.
  4. Switch back to Adobe Prelude and click on the Project Panel.
  5. Select the individual clips you want to send by Command-clicking (Ctrl-clicking) or select all clips.
  6. Choose File > Send to Premiere Pro.
  7. Switch to Adobe Premiere Pro. The files should appear in the Project panel
  8. You can now quit Adobe Prelude and close the project.

In case you haven't picked up An Editor’s Guide to Adobe Premiere Pro, you can now check out a bunch of the book for free. This is the most detailed book on video editing that I've ever worked on, I literally wrote it to retrain my own staff. It is all about realistic workflows and maximizing the entire Production Premium Creative Suite.

Todd Kopriva of Adobe says:
“This book is an excellent resource for experienced editors to learn Adobe Premiere Pro. It begins from an assumption that you already know about video editing in general and only need to learn the details of the features and workflows specific to Adobe Premiere Pro and its companion applications.”
Here are two free chapters and two appendixes:

Seven Ways to Move Media In and Out of Adobe Premiere Pro

You’ll find seven ways to move media to and from Adobe Premiere Pro. Be sure you understand all of your options so you can make the right decision for your workflow.
  • Dynamic Link – You can hand off media between Adobe Premiere Pro, Adobe After Effects, Adobe Encore, and Adobe Audition. The media exchanges seamlessly and you can easily switch between the two applications as needed as the to projects become linked.
  • Copy & Paste – The easiest way to move media between After Effects and Adobe Premiere Pro is the standard Copy and Paste commands in the Edit menu.
  • Export PRPROJ – From After Effects you can choose File > Export Adobe Premiere Pro project to send to Adobe Premiere Pro.
  • Capture In Adobe Premiere Pro – Use this command in After Effects to switch to Adobe Premiere Pro and capture media files.
  • Import PRPROJ – You can import an entire Adobe Premiere Pro project into After Effects. This brings an individual or all sequences in as media files. All edits are preserved, but After Effects treats the Adobe Premiere Pro sequence as a single media file. Changes in Adobe Premiere Pro will update the corresponding media file in After Effects.
  • XML – Using the XML format, Adobe Premiere Pro can both import and export an XML file that links to media assets.
  • AAF – You can import the Advanced Authoring Format from Avid editing systems. You can also export using this format to send a project onto an Avid.

Keep your eyes out for our new Premiere Pro books that's in the works.

Visual Contrast for Interviews

Adobe Premiere Pro CS5042

As you watch your video are you noticing that almost every person in it is looking in the same direction? Unfortunately, this seems to happen a lot unless you consciously pay attention when shooting and remember to adjust lighting and backdrops between interviews.

Don’t worry; a simple built-in effect can save you. Use a Vertical Flip effect to reverse screen direction. You don’t need to maintain a L-R-L-R-L-R visual order throughout, but try to get some visual intercutting by changing the direction your subject looks.

Be careful not to flip a screen with text, recognizable logos, or a clock in it. Also be sure to be consistent with all appearances of a person throughout the edit.
