New RED Mysterium-X Support now available

For those who attended the RED supermeet in Las Vegas, you may remember me showing an example of Mysterium-X support in Premiere Pro and After Effects, including support for FLUT color science.

That support is now available on Labs right here:

Todd Kopriva has a great article about it here:

Stump the Karl…

Recently, I presented at a user group down in San Jose, the Bay Area Professional Video Association, showing off CS5 for over an hour. Thanks to Dan O’Hara and the rest of the BAPVA board for having me down!

I was asked a question that I didn’t have an answer to, or, rather, I thought I had the answer to – Do chapter markers from Premiere Pro come through in a Dynamic Link to Encore? And, if the chapter markers are updated in Premiere, will they automatically update in Encore?

Well, the answer to the first part is yes, chapter markers in a Premiere Pro timeline do transfer across into Encore. I got that right.

The second part I sort of got right, but I missed an important step. If you go back to Premiere Pro, and alter the chapter markers, it’s true that the chapter markers don’t automatically update, but it’s easy to tell Encore to update them. Right-click on the timeline in Encore, and choose “Update Markers from Source” as shown here:


Now, keep in mind that when this is done, ALL chapter markers are reset to what they are in the Premiere Pro sequence, and you’ll lose things like Poster Frames. But, the important thing is that you can do it. Special thanks to Dan for catching this, and tweeting me the answer.

I need to create a signature prize, like the old Marvel No-Prize, to hand out when someone catches me making a mistake like this one in a live presentation. 🙂

Using the Fast Color Corrector

Here’s a nice tutorial for using the Fast Color Corrector in Premiere Pro from the folks at

The Fast Color Corrector is one of the 30+ effects that are GPU accelerated in CS5, so with the right Nvidia video card in the system, you can use it tons of times in the timeline without ever rendering. Even if you don’t have a recommended GPU, such as in a laptop, the Fast Color Corrector is, well, fast. It works great on my laptop with DSLR footage, and in most cases, I still don’t have to render a preview file to see full frame rate.
