@Audio Recording 1: Setting Up to Record Narration
by Iris Fernandini
I have been watching this video with lots of interest as it is a very comprehensive tutorial.
I need some help though in understanding the need for an ASIO compatible driver which apparently I don't have or do I? I am using a VAIO laptop with Windows 7.
Under Sound, Video and Game controllers I show:
Intel display audio
Realtek High Definition audio.
I have no idea if any of the two is ASIO compatible.
Should I download an ASIO driver or should I just use Premiere Pro WDM?
At the moment the only thing I want to do is to add narration to my video but most probably I will need to add music at one point.
As you may have noticed by now, I am a novice about this.

Hi Iris

You should be fine to leave the audio set up as Premiere Pro WDM and when you click on the ASIO settings just make sure that you select the speakers or headphones of you laptop for the output tab and whatever mic you want to use, be it a plug in mic or the laptop mic for the input tab. Otherwise it should work just fine.

Hope this helps

I thought this might be of interest to anyone viewing this video. I just uploaded a video review of the Alesis iO2 Express USB audio interface. I am a professional videographer but never need to record voice overs or music professionally, I just do it for fun so I didn't really need to spend loads on an interface. I just wanted something that would give me a clean quality signal and was recommended the Alesis. This video review covers my experience with it.







Enjoy!

Hi Jon
Thank you for your kind commments, my aim is to help new users and those who want to know more about Premiere Pro and After Effects, so it sounds like you and your students are exactly my target audience :o)

Could you give me a little more detail of what you mean my by 'a true film-like cross-dissolve'? I'm not entirly sure what you mean and I use the standard cross-dissolve all the time although I do modify it at times. So, if you give me some details I will have a think! But no promises as even though I teach I am also a learner in many areas.

Kind Regards
Andrew

Andrew, thank you so much for your response. We appreciate it.
I worked in motion pictures for 25 years before video, so a true cross (lap) dissolve is very different from what the NLEs have to offer. Here are some links to various web pages that detail the specifics.

If something like this could be done in Premiere, well, that would be most incredible. Maybe you could come up with a recipe.

thanks, Jon

Jon,
Make sure to make a feature request for this. You can file a feature request here: http://www.adobe.com/go/wish

That would be the best way to let us know how we can improve Adobe Premiere Pro.

I will Kevin, thank you.
In the meantime, someone has to have a down and dirty solution to this. Cross dissolves in Premiere (as in other software) are not correct and do not look good.

Hi Jon

Thanks for the links, but is there a visual example you can give me so I can see what you mean? Sorry to be a little slow ... but if I know what I'm aiming at I can have a think about how it could be created in PP but at the moment I am still somewhat in the dark!

Hi Andrew, here is a great link with a truly good example of this.

http://www.lacquer.fi/blog/?p=8

I hope this helps you. If I find more, I'll send them over. I think if you take a quick look at any (pre-video) motion pictures, where prints were optically produced in a lab, you'll see the difference. The link I've sent you here, for my eyes, really shows the difference. It would seem that GenArts Sapphire optical-film dissolve accomplishes this with ease and great control, but one has to use After Effects to make it work (A & B roll).

Mr. Davis, you're tutorials are SO good and informative. All my students use them on a regular basis. I just wanted to thank you. You are a special gift to this community!

Several of my students (and me) would love you to create a tutorial on HOW to make a true film-like cross-dissolve in Premiere Pro. After all these years, one would think Adobe could handle this (the dissolves look bad and incorrect). We have found no solution on the web, and do not wish to use After Effects. So we thought, if anyone would know, YOU would. Would be interested in your response.

much thanks,
Jon R. Hand

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

RE:Match Non-matching Cameras in Premiere Pro
  Play Video
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.
