With the introduction of the SpeedGrade CC 7.1 and Premiere Pro CC 7.1 Updates today, everyone will get their hands on the awesome new Direct Link feature between Premiere Pro and SpeedGrade. This feature allows us to quickly open a Premiere timeline directly in SpeedGrade do our color correction and then return to Premiere without having any of the complications of rendering, xmls, edls, or intermediate files. In my early testing, I can attest to the ease of the new workflow, but there is one caveat I wanted to make sure everyone is aware of. Watch the video for full information and warning about using Lumetri Looks in Premiere and sending them over to SpeedGrade.
In this video we talk about the new Overlays for the Source and Program monitors of Premiere Pro. We also talk about ways to customize these settings to your liking. The video demonstrates the information you can easily keep on your screen to view all of the relevant data about your timeline.

I often get asked by coworkers or colleagues, “What are the main differences between FCP7 and Premiere Pro?” And the truth is, there are a lot of similarities between the two applications, but there are also a ton of little differences. This video features 10 things that I think any new Premiere Pro users should know. This one is definitely on the longer side for our videos, but I think the tips are really helpful. So hangin there, and let us know if have any questions.
And the synopsis from Premium Beat:
10 things that FCP7 editors should know about Premiere Pro include:
- Scratch disks are project based
- There is less transcoding necessary
- Setting render codec (codec settings not as ‘important’)
- Partial renders on clips are not maintained
- Audio tracks are handled differently, stereo is on one track
- Premiere Pro has powerful audio sync tools
- Changes to simple editing (smoother process in Premiere)
- Copy and paste clips onto different tracks
- Scrubbing is possible in the Premiere Pro project panel
- Batch export in the background while editing
