SpeedGrade CS6 (6.0.2) Update

Today, the SpeedGrade CS6 (6.0.2) update was released. As always, we want to thank you for your feedback. Building great software is a team effort.

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 manually download and install the updates using updaters for Windows and Mac OS.

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

If you have questions or difficulties with this update, come to the SpeedGrade forum where there are lots of people ready to help.

    Can you add support for Tangent Element? I already added this to the feedback support site.

      Hi Warren,

      We’ve had a number of people requesting this. I can’t comment on future product plans, but I can tell you we hear you!

    Please do something that speedgrade can handle the crossfades and the other transissions exported from premiere into speedgrade…. cause this issue is pretty important to me for musicvideos and so on…

      Hi Mike,

      Thanks for the feedback.

    Adobe Dynamic Linked sequences from after effects are not supported in speedgrade, the reels cannot be loaded. Is there a way support could be added for this?

      Render content out of Premiere Pro, or After Effects, then open in SpeedGrade for finishing.

    I also want to grade a premiere sequence (final grade after edit) -and the crossfade issue is a pain. Fade to/from black is such a common occurence!
    We need to be able to grade the whole clip and have speedgrade reapply the transition using the EDL information. Treating each transition period as a separate clip cocks up any changes you make to the main body of the clip. The viewer is shown a flash of ungraded clip just as it begins to transition. Nonsense.

      Try rendering out the sequence in Premiere Pro first, then opening it in SpeedGrade for final grading.
