Four Ways to Load Footage in SpeedGrade

Last time we looked at the SpeedGrade Desktop. This week, let’s look at how to get your content onto the Timeline where you can work on it.

Patrick Palmer, Product Manager for SpeedGrade has created a video which shows how this is done.

There are four ways to get your footage into SpeedGrade. The most automated way to do this is to use the Send to SpeedGrade command in Premiere Pro. The most flexible way is to load an Edit Decision List (EDL) and conform your clips. This allows you to update, or swap out, individual clips, for example. You can also load an existing SpeedGrade project ( an .ircp file). The most manual way, is to add individual clips to the Timeline one-by-one. Continue reading…

SpeedGrade CS6 (6.0.1) Update

Today, the SpeedGrade CS6 (6.0.1) update was released. Thank you to everyone for your feedback since the launch of SpeedGrade CS6 last month!

If Adobe Application Manager hasn’t already told you about this, go ahead and check for new updates by choosing Help > Updates. The best way to check for updates is by closing all Adobe applications other than Adobe Bridge, and choosing Help > Updates in Adobe Bridge; this ensures that all processes related to Adobe video applications have been quit and can be updated safely.

Ideally, you should install the updates automatically as described above, but you can also directly download the update packages from the download page for Windows or Mac OS.

For information about updates for other Adobe professional video applications, see this page.
