CreativeCOW presents Color Correction 3: Vignette Techniques -- Adobe Premiere Pro Tutorial



©2010 CreativeCOW.net. All rights reserved.


Vignettes help to focus the action and keep the audience looking where you want them to look. You can make them as obvious or as subtle as you like and once you know what they are and how to use them you will see them being used everywhere. In this short Premiere Pro tutorial Andrew Devis demonstrates two different vignette approaches in Premiere Pro to keep your audiences attention on the action rather than on the background.

Great Job. These are the things we need to know about premiere. I've been editing for 10 years now and didn't know how to drop the circle on the black layer like that. It makes my life so much easier, thank you. Also, I knew about the garbage mattes but seeing how you manipulate then lights up the light bulb a bit more. Thanks again!!

Hi again Cris

You should have fast blur in CS4 - it has been around a long time and I opened up my version of CS4 and can confirm it is there!

What you may have done is left something in the search box at the top of the effects panel which will reduce your search to items that are spelt the same way as what you have in that box! So, use the little x mark to the right and clear the search panel so you can search all your effects.

It will be under Video Effects>Blur and Sharpen>Fast Blur

If you really don't have it, then you ought to have a chat with Adobe as it is part of the standard suite.

Hope this helps
Andrew

Firstly, your tutorials are great, thanks for the straight forward explanations.

I use Premiere CS4 and I don't have Fast Blur is that in CS5 only.

In this Premiere Pro video tutorial, Andrew Devis will show you how to apply color correction to a much more specific area. Starting with an explanation of the three-way color corrector, Andrew will then go on to show how to use the secondary colour correction function to specify a color range and reduce the saturation of that specific range rather than the whole shot. Whilst being a more advanced technique, secondary color correction can make all the difference to a shot when something just doesn't look right or stands out much more than it should

Cooking With Premiere Pro CC on PBS's America's Test Kitchen

As America's Test Kitchen enters its 15th season on PBS, they've made the switch to Premiere Pro Creative Cloud. Post-production Supervisor and director Herb Sevush has been with the show from the beginning, and confessed some trepidation moving away from FCP 7, but has found it to be a great fit for their data-intensive, increasingly 4K multicam production, and his work with remote editors. Here, Herb offers some insights into both the why and the how of their switch, with special attention to Premiere Pro CC's approach to multicam.

RE:Match Non-matching Cameras in Premiere Pro

In this tutorial Andrew Devis demonstrates a relatively new plug-in by RE:Vision Effects called RE:Match and how it can very quickly and accurately deal with the very common problem of non-matching cameras in Premiere Pro. A typical approach to dealing with say a white balance issue would be to apply the fast color corrector and use the white balance picker, but this can be very hit and miss, while RE:Match deals with the whole image using another image or clip as the reference to match too. This very powerful effect can save a great deal of time for an everyday problem and so earn its cost back very quickly as well as giving excellent and fast results. There is another tutorial showing how this effect works in After Effects as there is a slightly different way the two applications deal with reference images.

In this second tutorial on Media Encoder, Andrew Devis shows how to create preset groups for customers to ensure that you always export the same file types and minimize the risk of choosing the wrong presets when outputting multiple different sequences. Andrew also shows how to customize a preset to meet specific needs such as different frame rates or frame sizes etc and save that preset and add it to a preset group for the customer you created it for. Andrew then shows how to quickly select a smaller portion of the sequence so that you can test your output settings on a much smaller section of the sequence you want to export.

In this tutorial, Andrew Devis shows how to get a sequence from Premiere Pro into either Encore or After Effects using the 'dynamic link' function. Dynamically linking a sequence to either Encore or After Effects will mean that any changes made to the sequence in Premiere Pro will be automatically updated in the program it is linked to (Encore or After Effects). Andrew demonstrates both a simple 'drag and drop' as well as a menu driven approach to setting up dynamic link.
