The Cool Stuff in Premiere Pro – now available!
The Cool Stuff in Premiere Pro is now available as downloadable e-book (watermarked PDF). It covers advanced editing techniques in Premiere Pro, and goes into much greater detail than any existing book on Premiere. This is the real stuff – the techniques used by professionals in their daily work.
Learn how to edit much faster and get better results. Learn how smarter workflows and the use of presets and templates can save hours – even days – on every project. Knowing more about the software will make you look smart to clients and work faster so you can have more time for creativity.
The book covers the most current version at the time of release; Premiere Pro – 2014.2. In this book you’ll learn about Multi-Channel Audio Editing, Color Grading, Motion Graphics, Compositing, Multi-Camera workflows, Customizing Premiere, Export, Integration with other Adobe software and a huge amount of technical info and editing tips and tricks. More than 2.200 images, illustrations and screen shots make it easy to understand the techniques.
UPDATE: My original plan was to release a new PDF version and a printed version shortly after the 2016 release. Surprisingly, there was no 2016 release – Adobe chose to name the June 2016 release “CC 2015.3”. So no matter how fresh and up-to-date the content in my book would be, it would seem outdated because it “only covered the 2015 release”.
So I had to wait for the next update, and see if the Adobe folks have a new naming scheme up their sleeve. That release came in November, and is named 2017. So now I’m in the process of updating all the chapters to cover the 2017 version. The plan is to release it summer 2017. Does that mean you should wait, and not buy the existing version? No, you’ll get a very decent discount on the upcoming version if you buy the existing one (65% on digital versions, 50% on printed version). You will still learn a ton of new things about Premiere, so there’s no reason to wait.

Some info about the PDF e-book
The 134 MB PDF is watermarked and password protected. It can be read on PC, Mac, tablets and even on smart phones. I wouldn’t recommend reading the whole book on a smart phone, but it’s great for quick searches, always available in your pocket. One of the best ways to use the e-book is to have it open on a tablet while you’re editing on a Mac or PC.
The more than 600 pages are easy to navigate. There is a Table of Content at the start, with links to every chapter and every heading. The whole Table of content is clickable too, so clicking a topic there will take you directly to the page where that topic starts. Clicking the logo in every page header takes you to the Table of Content. Clicking on the footer with the name of the chapter takes you to the start of the chapter. Since it’s a PDF, everything is instantly searchable as well.

Copy a PDF to iBooks using iTunes
Some iOS devices will not allow you to download the protected PDF from the web at all, so you need to transfer it from a Mac or a PC. You can use iTunes to copy your PDF file from a Mac or PC to your iOS device. I recommend that you keep all the PDFs you want on your iOS device in one folder on your Mac or PC.
1. Open iTunes and select your iOS device

3. Drag your PDF into iTunes, or import it in another way
4. Click the check box to include the new book in the items to sync to the device

The PDF now shows up as a book in your iBooks app.
Copy a PDF smart phones and tablets using Dropbox
