Recently, a new series on color correction for Premiere Pro was released by video2brain. Hosted by Maxim Jago, this series of video tutorials aims to get you up to speed on the color correction capabilities of Premiere Pro CS5 and CS5.5. Entitled, “Color Correction in Premiere Pro: Analyze and Optimize the Color in Your Video,” topics include color correction basics, color correction scopes (and how to use them), the Fast Color Corrector, the 3-way Color Corrector and color correction effects. Learn to fix color mistakes and the secrets of matching color on different camera angles. Color Correction with After Effects is also explored. Almost 3 hours of instruction is included.

Here are the free video excerpts you can check out:

Video Production with Adobe Premiere Pro CS5.5 and After Effects CS5.5: Learn by Video From Script to Screen with CS5.5

A new video course from our friends at Learn By Video and Video2Brain has just been released. This video series focuses on the script to screen workflow using Adobe Premiere Pro CS5.5 and Adobe After Effects CS5.5. It’s called, “Video Production with Adobe Premiere Pro CS5.5 and After Effects CS5.5: Learn by Video. From Script to Screen with CS5.5.”

Hosted by Maxim Jago (Getting Started with Adobe Premiere Pro CS5Adobe Premiere Pro CS5: Learn by VideoPremiere Pro CS5 for Avid Editors, and more), this package contains over 8 hours of in-depth training. Maxim shows you how to start a project with Adobe Story, and then import the script into Premiere Pro. After the story is rough cut, add titles and effects with Photoshop and After Effects. Finally, export your production via Adobe Media Encoder to create video files for the web or media files for Adobe Encore. In Encore, you can author a Web DVD, DVD or Blu-ray disc.

Integration between creative applications is the key to a smooth post-production workflow, and that’s what these videos are all about. That’s why I like this training series so much. Here are some excerpts to show the kinds of things you’ll learn:

(Note: The size of the image in these free sample movies is much smaller than that of the full version on the DVD, so the text in some UI items in the free sample videos is sometimes hard to read. Also, the free sample videos don’t include the source files that are included with the DVD, so you’ll need to use your own assets to follow along.)Share on Facebook
