Cool Stuff logo

The Cool Stuff in Premiere Pro deals with advanced editing techniques to help you make better films. You’ll learn techniques to speed up your workflow dramatically, doing more work, faster, with better looking results. Reading this book, you’ll understand how to edit fast, and do compositing and motion graphics design in Premiere.

One chapter deals with core editing techniques used by professionals to tell the story faster. A huge chapter covers advanced Color Grading inside of Premiere. There are also chapters on Audio Editing, Motion Graphics and Compositing.

Premiere Pro template projects and custom presets

Workflow enhancements like Premiere Pro template projects and custom presets are used extensively throughout the book, and you’ll learn how to make your own, and why you should use them.

There’s a chapter on using Premiere Pro in mixed environments, exchanging projects with software like Avid, FCP, Smoke, DaVinci and ProTools.

Integration with Adobe Production Premium

There will be chapters where Dynamic Link to After Effects is used for improved effectiveness, and chapters where you learn how to use Photoshop for pretty advanced video stuff. But most of the time, Premiere Pro can do the job all by itself.

Not for beginners

You’re supposed to know the basics of Premiere Pro before you dive into this book, although there will be a short chapter on basic editing in Premiere Pro in an appendix.

Expected release date

(Updated Nov 29, 2014).

Although I’ve written several more chapters, no more separate chapters will be released. The next release will be the full book! Getting the whole book done before the end December should now be realistic. I’m working on the last chapter now. I need to update three old chapters, but that shouldn’t take too long.

  • PDF & Printed full version: Planned release: December 2014
