As workflows between products become more integrated, so too shall the blogs. We’re excited to announce a new section of the Creative Cloud blog dedicated to Video & Audio tools. Subscribe now to get updates on the latest news, interviews, and more about the Adobe Creative Cloud video and audio toolkit.
This year at NAB 2015 we’re taking the wraps off some really exciting new tools and workflows for video pros, including a new mobile Look capture technology, a brand new Color workspace in Adobe Premiere Pro, and Creative Cloud Library support for Looks, so you can share Looks between Premiere Pro, After Effects, and Premiere Clip. And we haven’t forgotten SpeedGrade: the next release of our professional color grading application includes support for Lumetri Looks created in Premiere Pro – meaning that every color manipulation made in Premiere Pro is rendered identically in SpeedGrade. You will also get more responsive scopes, new SpeedLooks, and general performance and stability improvements.

We’ve written about how to get content into SpeedGrade, and have described the EDL Conform process in previous posts, but SpeedGrade has one more EDL trick up its sleeve that I think many of you will love. This one is about as easy as it gets.
Here’s how you do super-easy EDL export from Adobe Premiere Pro into SpeedGrade:
