In this tutorial, Andrew Devis introduces the YC Waveform graph, showing how to select it and explaining what information it gives. Andrew also briefly discusses the IRE 7.5 setup and also shows the difference between NTSC and PAL measurement as well as how PAL mV are shown differently in Premiere Pro (incorrectly) compared to After Effects (correctly).

Hallo everybody,
in this post there's a pretty infos about this problem:

http://www.premiumbeat.com/blog/yc-waveform-monitor/

Above all it says:
A special note for PAL editors: Unfortunately, Premiere Pro doesn’t seem to follow international standards for this measurement! In the usual PAL system you measure in mV (millivolts) where 100 IRE = 714mV and 0 IRE = 0mV (IRE 7.5 = 53mV) but for some reason Premiere uses Volts and has the range 0.3 to 1. As long as you know about the differences this shouldn’t cause you many problems.

but I didn't understand ...
at the end, which is in Pal (V) waveform the threshold?
I think we have this correspondence between IRE and mV (Volts):
IRE = 100 Pure Withe
as
V = 1.0 (but the right White PAL V value is 0.714)

and

IRE = 0 Pure Black (but the right Black PAL V value is 0)
as
V = 0.3

It seems work rightly.

Hi Anton

I'm pleased you found this helpful, it actually took me quite a long time to get this information in the first place! I can understand why PP works 0 to 100 as it is easy for people to understand, but technically it isn't correct and so can really throw people out who actually understand what it should be!

Thanks for your comment.
Andrew

... because it's all about stories ...

Thank you for a great tutorial and particularly for the info about PAL mV being shown incorrectly in Premiere Pro. Premier Pro’s YC waveform monitor had been worrying me for a while, reassuring to know that it’s Adobe’s problem and not mine (while still a pain). Yours was the only straight answer I could find. Thanks again.

In this tutorial, Andrew Devis goes through a new option that will be coming with the next release of Adobe Premiere Pro called Lumetri Looks - which gives you the option to apply .Look files created in Adobe SpeedGrade directly to your footage in Premiere Pro. While this option at first glance seems to only offer the ability to apply presets already created, there is also a way in which you can create your own grades in SpeedGrade, save them as .Look files and then apply those custom grades to your footage or to an adjustment layer in Premiere Pro CS_Next. In this tutorial, Andrew shows the new option and how it may be used with SpeedGrade CS_Next to create, save and apply your own custom looks.
