Working with the Lumetri effect

One of the more popular requests is for easier interoperability between Premiere Pro and SpeedGrade. Although a total “Dynamic Link” workflow is not available as of this release, the Lumetri effect in provides a way to import .look or LUTs from SpeedGrade directly into Premiere Pro. You can also choose from numerous presets in the Lumetri browser.

To apply a .look or LUT file, apply the Lumetri effect (in the Color Correction category) to the clip, group of clips, or Adjustment Layer. An OS “Select Look/LUT” dialog box launches. Select the .look or LUT, and then click Open. It is then applied to the clip or clips.

You can also choose from the Lumetri Looks browser in the Effects panel. Thumbnails show you what the look will be like. Apply the effect as you would any other effect.

For more on using the Lumetri effect, see this video tutorial by Andrew Devis.

New role at Adobe: Social Support Lead for DV products

HelpHi everyone. I have not posted for awhile as I have been transitioning to a new role: Social Support Lead for DVA products here at Adobe.

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:

Premiere Pro
Adobe Media Encoder
After Effects

You can also find me in third party forums, as well. Let me know if you need help!Share on Facebook

Slipping and Sliding in Trim mode in Premiere Pro CS6

slip-slideIn 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:

  1. Set up edit point selection with the Ripple tool:
    • Slip: Select and Shift select edit points so that they are facing inwards from the clip (see left)
    • Slide:  Select the edit points so that they are facing outwards from the clip.
  2. Place the Playhead on the beginning or end of the clip, depending on which side of the edit you want to monitor.
  3. Launch Trim mode by pressing T.
  4. Use the JKL keys to slip or slide the frames.
  5. Press the Space Bar to preview the edit.
  6. If necessary, repeat steps 4 and 5 until you are satisfied with the edit.

This technique is also described on this video by 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.
