IBC is just around the corner, and with that comes what seems to be Adobe’s bi-yearly tradition of major updates to the video applications.
There is so much to cover in this update to Premiere CC 2014, so let’s dive right in. Remember to read to the end because I will definitely save some of the best for last.
This isn’t one of our usual video tutorial posts. It is in fact not even a piece of information that we want to share with you. It is more of a question than anything else?
How do you guys deal with relinking in Premiere Pro? Now, one obvious answer might be to use our product, reLink reTooled. reLink reTooled was created to facilitate certain workflows in Premiere Pro and Final Cut Pro 7, and make it easier to relink files with different lengths, filenames, etc. It was more designed for an offline to online workflow with color corrected finals or an effects workflow where clip duration and file names are likely to change all of the time. I understand why this type of workflow is harder for the NLE makers to address. It involves complicated combinations of metadata based relinking.
Well, it’s that time again. NAB is just around the corner, and with that comes a ton of new software and new features! In this video we talk about the upcoming features that Adobe has announced for the upcoming version of Premiere Pro CC. There are tons of little features, but we cover the majority of these with 15 new features in all in this video. I know it’s a longer video so please stay with it. There is a lot to cover after all! The features we cover are as follows:
1. Masking and tracking built into all effects in the timeline
2. Reverse Match frame
3. Maintain audio pitch while scrubbing
4. Assign more than one keyboard shortcut to a command
5. Media Browser favorites
6. Set to Frame Size command
7. Preserve intrinsics and effects when flatting multi cam
8. Auto-save to cloud
9. Marker names in markers panel
10. Track backward selection
11. Transparency Grids in the monitors
12. Toogle all video and audio locks separately
13. Voiceover recording setup
14. Master Clip effects

One correction to the video: you can add control points to the polygonal mask by hitting cmd/cntl and clicking.

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.
