While we don’t have our full in depth coverage of the upcoming release of Premiere Pro ready yet, we didn’t want to leave you guys hanging. The newly announced update to Premiere Pro features a bunch of small user enhancements and a few major features too. In this video we cover what we think are some of the best updates coming to Premiere Pro.
- New Workspace Bar
- The New Color Workspace and the Lumetri Color Panel
- Clip Markers are now visible even when a track is collapsed.
- Track Output Assignments in the Timeline
- New Frame Hold Option to use Source Timecode
- Increase on Handles in Project Manager and Render and Replace to 999
- Ability to Relocate the Anchor Point Like After Effects
- Ability to Hide Items in your Project panel
- Morph Cut

With the upcoming Premiere Pro CC 2014.1 update, we’ll have a really powerful Free Draw Bezier, or pen tool built into all of our effects. This includes Lumetri Looks, and looks presets like Color reTooled. With this tool, we can mask, track, and even control the opacity of various effects. In this video, we look at the workflow of doing simple color correction using this new tool in combination with Color reTooled. We demonstrate how even a color correct novice, can quickly do advanced color grading right in Premiere Pro.
If you want to purchase Color reTooled, go to our site:
Please remember Color reTooled is compatible with Premiere Pro CC or later, but the free draw bezier tool is in the upcoming CC 2014.1 update.
Adobe acquired SpeedGrade just before the release of CS6, so the integration between Premiere Pro and SpeedGrade was fairly minimal.
In this brief video I showcase the “virtual trackballs” in SpeedGrade CS6. What this feature does, is gives a colorist part of the power of a full on control surface, without the expense of one. Now, of course SpeedGrade supports actual control surfaces, but for the occasional color corrector, or anyone on a budget, this feature takes some of the pain out of adjusting the color wheels.
