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.
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 and Audition for audio clean-up. But most of the time, Premiere Pro can do the job all by itself.

Expected release date
(Updated Jan 20, 2015).
No more separate chapters will be released. The next release will be the full book! The last chapter has been sent for layout. I also need to update three chapters due to advances in Premiere Pro since I wrote them, but that shouldn’t take too long.
- PDF full version: Planned release: February 2015
- Printed version: Planned release: Shortly after the first 2015 release of Premiere
Adobe has a habit of releasing big updates at the NAB show in April, so it seems like a bad idea to release a printed book in February. I’ll wait and see what new features the team comes up with before printing the book on dead trees. The PDF version can easily be updated, and will be released as soon as it’s finished.
