Re: Premiere Pro CS6 Techniques: 97 Track Matte Key

Hello back,

that's indeed great news! But can I also encode to ProRes then or only decode/play it on the timeline? Which lossless codec is best to be uses on both windows and Mac?

Hi Immanuel

That's a great question! But one I can't really give an answer to as I don't work cross platform. However, if I were working with ProRes footage and needed to use it in both PP and AE (which I do quite often) I would be working with dynamic link until the final output version. That way, you can produce project files that will work across platforms and use the original ProRes footage until you are ready for the final output and so not risk any loss of quality.

Otherwise, if you really need to have a common lossless codec then it comes down to what you want to do with it, how you will be handling audio etc and then my first choice would be a HQ image sequence TIFF, EXR or quicktime photo jpeg depending as I say on exactly how I wanted to use it.

However, with perfect playback of RroRes on PP and AE and dynamic link I would work with the original as long as I possibly could.

Not sure if this helps, it may well be a good question to put up on the forum and see what other people think and/or are using in their own projects.

All the best
Andrew

Hello Andrew,

thank you VERY VERY much for your great tutorials! You have an excellent teaching style!

May God bless you to continue doing that!

One question to the above tut: You mention that the clip in the timeline is in ProRes 422 - but obviously you're on a Windows machine. How does that work?

Thanks a lot and have a beautiful day.

Hi Immanuel

Thank you for your kind words and your blessing :o)

Premiere Pro plays ProRes 422 on windows machines - which is great news! Obviously you should have quicktime installed on your machine but once that is on your machine and you have PP CS6 ProRes will play natively on a windows machine. This is great for me as I film using a Ninja (atomos ninja 2) which takes the HDMI output of my camera and captures it in ProRes HQ which I then edit in Premiere Pro CS6 on my windows machine - it also plays back without any need to render etc ...

Hope this helps and every blessing to you
Andrew

Hi Ann

To use the titler, just create a title shape, add it to the track above the layer you want to matte and then add a blur to that title and animate as needed. Using the titler is simply to create the shape you need rather than using the circle effect or a garbage matte.

Hope this helps

Thanks so much for the explanation. Tomorrow - when all the New Year Celebrations are over - I'll give it a try. Happy New Year!

Excellent tutorial. I had a clip turned down by Shutterstock because of a visible logo which infringes copyright, so I needed to blur it out throughout the clip. I've tried several methods, but I like this one because it enables me to feather the edges. I'm not sure how to do it with the Titler, but I'll experiment with that too.

In this tutorial, Andrew Devis deals with one of the most common problems when dealing with audio in Premiere Pro - how do you change a stereo clip into a dual mono clip? Andrew will show how to change your preferences so that any imported clip will be seen as being dual mono in Premiere Pro as well as how to change a clip that is already imported into your project. Please note that it is not easy to change a clip AFTER it has been put in the timeline. However, Andrew goes on to show one option for muting one channel of a stereo pair in your timeline which can in some cases be helpful.

In this tutorial, Andrew Devis shows how to use Adobe Audition to separate the 2 channels of a clip already in the timeline so that they become 2 mono tracks. Although this is a potential work-flow for this problem of separating stereo to dual mono, it is not the best way of dealing with it and should only be done when there isn't really the option to go back and start with the clips from scratch once again.

In this tutorial, Andrew Devis goes through the right-click gain options for audio waveforms in Premiere Pro. These often overlooked options are very powerful when used to either maintain the relationship between clip volumes or break that relationship such that the volume of each of the clips in amplified to the maximum. Understanding these options will give you some quick and powerful tools for dealing with problem audio in your projects. Note: Gain should be sorted out before changes to volume for best results.

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.
