Hi Joe
You are right of course, but it was one of the first tutorials I did so I hope to be a little.more accurate in future.

They're not splash screens, they're dialog boxes. A splash screen shows information like the purple Premiere banner at startup, but splash screens don't accept user input. That's what a dialog box does.

Hi Vincent, thanks for your comment and yes, to a point. This stage is all about the input footage - what you're actually going to be working with but not so much about the output. The idea is to match your sequence to the source footage so that the there aren't any mismatches with PAR, field order, sizes etc. etc. Then, you do all your editing in that (or those) sequences until you have a product you are happy with.

As for export, of course it is always a good idea to have in mind what you want to export to, and this can be really important when it comes to mobile devices with different screen sizes. So, you still produce a sequence to match your source footage but then adjust your safe margins to match your output device(s) and edit appropriately.

Finally, when it actually comes to output, you know that your source sequences are at the highest quality so you can then choose whatever codec matches your audiences devices. You may end up having to render some test sequences to start with, but this is a completely separate stage to the setting up of the sequences.

It's really great that you know all the details of your source footage, which means you don't need to use the presets. But I would say that you are probably in a minority with that - especailly for new users who can even take a while to work out what type of camera they are using let along the footage, PAR, filed order etc ...

Interesting approach. I guess the concept is that you're matching your stage to the source material and outputting in the same format. Seems like a good idea, especially when you're using a particular codec.
I typically edit uncompressed video and always use custom project files, as I know all of the settings that I should be using, and prefer to have a preview that displays in the same format that I intend to output.

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.

While the 'Leave Color' effect is powerful, it is also a simple approach which may or may not work for you depending on the footage you are working with. If you are not getting the results you want with the 'Leave Color' effect, then you may wish to use the secondary color correction techniques shown in previous tutorials to obtain a similar and slightly more controllable result.
