Recently, a new series on color correction for Premiere Pro was released by video2brain.

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.

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:

New Video Training Series: Premiere Pro CS5 for Avid Editors

Are you an Avid editor looking to make the change to Premiere Pro CS5? Have a job more suited to Premiere Pro’s native tapeless workflow? Maybe you’re looking to round trip an Avid sequence to a favorite Adobe application. If so, you’re not alone, my friend.

Fortunately, a new resource for Avid editors needing information about Premiere Pro has been released. It’s the new title from Video2Brain called, “Premiere Pro CS5 for Avid Editors – Your Guide to Making the Leap to Premiere Pro”. This video series for Avid to Premiere Pro users is the first of its kind.

Editor Maxim Jago hosts the series, lending insight to the key similarities and differences of the applications. He even points out where Premiere Pro might even be a better tool for the job. Maxim is both an Avid and Premiere Pro expert, so his advice is definitely top-notch and spot on. He’s got great presentation skills and is easy to understand.

One of the things about the series I appreciate most is that it does not “talk down” to you. Since editing concepts and workflow are similar in the Avid Media Composer and Premiere Pro, you’ll be provided only with new information that you’ll need to get the job done.

Curious? Well, you’re in luck! Video2Brain has provided some excellent video samples for you to view. Take a look and see what you think.
