Audio Editing is what most people struggle a lot with in Premiere Pro, especially if coming from other NLEs like FCP, Vegas or Avid. Premiere Pro CC handles audio in very different ways from all of these. Once you understand the logic behind the audio handling in Premiere, you’ll see that it’s very powerful and deep. You’ll get a full overview of the complete audio chain in Premiere Pro CC!
In this chapter you’ll learn everything about how to decide what channels from a source to import and what channels to put on the timeline. You’ll learn how to make Premiere treat Stereo clips as Dual Mono (like FCP and Avid does), and understand the difference between Mono, Standard, 5.1, Adaptive and Multichannel clips and tracks. You’ll also learn how to make Multichannel timelines where you can route audio tracks to whatever outputs you need – and how to treat a 5.1 mix. Need to export 32 audio channels? You’ll learn how.
This is probably the coolest of all the cool stuff you can do in Premiere! Compositing, Green Screen, Keying, Blending Modes, Track Mattes and other techniques are so much fun to work with. You get 47 pages crammed with tips and techniques for doing high quality compositing inside of Premiere. Everything is done without the help of third-party plug-ins.
Get inspired! Learn advanced compositing techniques, including expert keying, skin smoothening, witness protection, custom soft wipes, sky replacement, muzzle fire. You’ll also learn how to use the CC plug-ins from After Effects in Premiere, so you can add effects like Particles, Radial Fast Blur, Snow and Rain.
This chapter is for all you lazy, smart and busy editors out there! And for the editors who’d like to earn some money on their editing! Due to ever-decreasing budgets, tight deadlines and quick turnaround we need to complete projects faster and speed up our creative timeline with time-saving techniques.
Of all the chapters, this is probably the most unsexy one. But the time you save on accelerating your workflow can be used to create a lot more fun stuff in your film – or just help you get home for dinner, which is also cool!
