The newly added clip notes function in Premiere Pro 2.0 is certainly an excellent feature, for a variety of reasons. Perhaps the biggest reason is compatibility. Clip notes generated from Premiere Pro 2.0 can be opened up in the free and commonly used Adobe Acrobat Reader. Secondly, clip note comments can easily imported and exported via email. There is no need for complicated web servers or any other forms of media. In order to use clip-notes successfully, you have to follow a specific procedure and the following tutorial from Aanarav Sareen briefly describes how to use this newly added feature.


Step 1: Clip notes menu


To access the clip notes menu, select the sequence in the timeline window (make sure that it has the yellow bounding box) .



 

Once your sequence is selected, go to the Sequence menu and select Export for Clip Notes.



 

Step 2: Clip-note settings.


Once you select Export for Clip Notes, you will be presented with a dialog box that defines the properties of the generated clip note. Let's take a look at these settings in detail.

 

  1. Format: While creating clip-notes, Premiere Pro gives you the option of encoding your edited sequence in either Windows Media or Quicktime Video.
  2. Range: Similar to other export options in Premiere Pro, you have the choice of exporting the entire sequence or the video covered under the work-area bar.
  3. Preset: Although, not extremely customizable, you can choose from three pre-defined presets: Low quality, medium quality and high quality.
  4. Video options: Premiere Pro lets you either embed the video in the PDF file or stream it from a web-server. If you choose to embed the video, the generated PDF file will vary in size, depending in on the encoding quality and the duration of the video.
  5. Password: Premiere Pro permits you to set a password for the generated PDF file. So, if you don't want anyone else to view your video, other then the client, don't forget to enter in your password.
  6. Instructions: By default, Premiere Pro adds instructions on using the clip-notes feature. However, you can either delete those instructions or customize the instructions to suit your purposes.
  7. Return comments: This is the place to enter in your or the editor's email address.



Step 3: Okay!



Once you have customized the clip-notes settings, hit Ok, entire in a file name and wait for the PDF file to be generated. This step may take a little time, depending on the transcode settings and the duration of the video.



Step 4: Send to client


Once the PDF file has been generated, its time to send the file to your client. You can accomplish this task in a variety of different ways depending on the size of the generated file. If the file is considerably large, then you may want to put it on a CD or host it on a website.

 

Step 5: Client's side



When the client receives the PDF file, he or she can play the video directly within Adobe Acrobat Reader itself. To add comments, all they have to do is press 'pause' and enter in a comment in the available space.

  

           



To navigate between comments, locate the Go To drop down list and select a list of the comments created.

 



Step 6: Receiving comments



Once the client is done adding comments to the file, its time for you to get it back. For you to receive the comments, all the client has to do is click on the 'export' button and save the file on their hard drive.

 



 



 

As soon as the client hits 'Save', the default email program launches with the To field already set to the editor's email address and the clip note comments file as the attachment. Please note that the attachment will not be as large as the original clip notes file, because the XDFDF file only contains text.



Step 7: Receiving



Once you receive the comments via email, select your timeline again, go to the sequence menu and select Import Clip Notes Comments.

 



 

Once you select the clip notes comments file, you will notice that all the clip notes have been transformed into markers at the exact duration.
