Here is what the Sequence Settings dialog shows when you create a DNxHD sequence:
This should definitely improve workflow for those folks using DNxHD media.
That means I’ll no longer be doing the tech writing for DV products, however, you will still see me on the forums and social media sites helping people with their problems. Since there is no more tech writing for me to do, it will allow me to focus on the issues you may encounter. Look for me on the Adobe forums:
You can also find me in third party forums, as well. Let me know if you need help!Share on Facebook

This video by Andrew Devis on the Creative Cow website should also shed some light
on the Anti-flicker fiter.
In preparing a demo for the SF Cutters digital editing user’s group, I remembered a way to slip and slide clips in Trim mode.
Here’s how to do that:
This technique is also described on this video by reTooled.net beginning at 3:45. Keep in mind, as the video shows, you can also use Timeline trimming shortcuts to slip and slide edit points, as well. The technique of controlling multiple edit points is also shown.
Let me know if you find this technique useful.
This year, Adobe MAX is going to be awesome! I just heard that there will be a huge emphasis on pro video this year. Held May 4-8, MAX will also offer some great video instructors to help you learn pro video applications like Premiere Pro and After Effects. Take classes from Richard Harrington, Chris and Trish Meyer, Abba Shapiro, Christine Steele, and more. There are going to be some great keynote speakers too.
Here’s more info from the MAX website:
It’s a competitive world out there, and video pros need tools that won’t get in the way of their creativity. Based on Adobe Creative Suite Production Premium, sessions in the Video track will show you how to work smarter and faster to bring your high quality productions to any screen. From pre-production through post, sessions include hands-on labs, advice from expert panels, and inspirational work by creative leaders in the industry.

Now that tablet computers are here to stay, creative professionals are using them to assist with training materials, workflow guides, and keyboard shortcut lists. I work with my tablet open to helpful resources while working with Premiere Pro and After Effects.
iKeys To Go for Premiere Pro is a new app available on iOS which displays keyboard shortcuts for Premiere Pro CS6. Diana Weynand (author of many books on video editing) and Shirley Craig of Revuptransmedia are the ones behind iKeys to go. I’m really glad they have created an app for Premiere Pro users, as we do have a great many new people coming to the application from Final Cut Pro 7 and the Creative Cloud.
They plan to create more iKeys apps for other apps for creative pros, so stay tuned.Share on Facebook
Coming on Thursday, Dec 13, from 10-11am PST, join us for webinar by Jacob Rosenberg on how Adobe CS6 tools were used in the making of pro skateboarder Danny Way documentary, “Waiting for Lightning”. I’ll be on hand answering technical questions in the chat pod, so be sure to check it out. I think it will be especially interesting for those exploring advanced workflows with Adobe video tools like Premiere Pro and After Effects.

Here’s the scoop from the Online Events page:
See how the video pros behind Waiting for Lightning used high-performance Adobe post-production tools to document the life of Danny Way, one of the world’s most visionary skateboarders. This presentation will cover Bandito Brothers’ digital workflows which relied on After Effects, Adobe Premiere Pro, and other Adobe Creative Cloud tools to tell the story about how much abuse the body can sustain, how deep you have to dig to survive family troubles, and how high and far dreams can fly. Join director, filmmaker, author, and digital media expert Jacob Rosenberg of the studio Bandito Brothers for a webinar where he walks you through the making of this remarkable new, feature-length documentary and some of the breakthrough cinematography used in its creation.
Waiting for Lightning will be released on Friday, December 7 and will be playing at the Sony Metreon in SF. If you can’t make it to the theater, be sure to check it out on iTunes beginning December 7. Jacob will be attending the San Francisco screenings and doing a Q&A at 4:40pm and 7:10pm on December 8.
