Dave Dugdale-Sony Vegas to Premiere Switcher

Dave Dugdale is not a DSLR camera expert. However, Dave is interested in learning all about DSLR production and sharing all this mistakes with others. He created a site called Learning DSLR, which aims to show others how to shoot HD video with a DSLR. The site is primarily aimed at others like Dave that are making the transition from point-and-shoot cameras to DSLRs.

Up until now, Dave has been using Sony Vegas to edit his videos. With the latest version of Vegas focused more on stereoscopic 3D than DSLR editing, he decided to take a serious look at Premiere Pro CS5. Although he doesn’t have a recommended video card, Dave seems to be very happy with Premiere Pro’s performance.

Dave plans on creating more videos about “the switch” to Premiere Pro CS5, so I’ll be following along. Check out the first installment of the series, “Switching to Premiere Pro CS5 – Audio Track Format” on Dave’s website.

Getting into HD with DSLRs and Premiere Pro CS5? Read This!

Todd Kopriva hosts the Premiere Pro Work Area where you can find tons of cool blog posts, articles and troubleshooting help related to Premiere Pro. This week, Todd posted an article which links to a series of videos about DSLR video post-production. Created by Adobe Evangelist Jason Levine, these videos provide a good overview of DSLR post for photographers and other folks that may be new to editing.

In addition to the link to Jason’s videos, Todd has posted a plethora of supplemental links for DSLR HD post. Since Jason tends to present in rapid fire form, these links provide more detail and background for those that are interested in this booming new area of video post-production.

A Premiere Pro Switcher’s Story

Chris Fenwick

Chris Fenwick

Chris Fenwick is a colleague of mine and has been for quite a while here in the Bay Area. Chris has been involved in the post-production community since the 80’s so he’s been around the block a few times. He’s also well known in the Final Cut Pro community and has given impassioned lectures about non-linear editing workflow at FCP users groups like SF Cutters.

To my surprise, Chris has recently become a “switcher”. That is, someone who formerly used another editing tool and has made the decision to switch to Premiere Pro CS5. Lately, he’s been working with a ton of DSLR footage and the workflow for editing it in Final Cut Pro is too painful. Chris simply doesn’t have the time to transcode his footage just to start working on a project. Chris’ reasoning is that Premiere Pro CS5 provides tools to get his job done more quickly and smoothly than Final Cut Pro can.

Chris has recently released a series of videos about the switching process on his website. Although he can be a bit brash in talking about its quirks, I think that Chris gives a very honest assessment of the tools and features found in Premiere Pro CS5. Check out Chris’ website and look at the left hand column for links to all the videos and commentary. If you’re a switcher too, I think you’ll find the videos valuable. By the way, you can also follow Chris on Twitter.

Are you thinking about switching too? No problem! We’ve posted a web page for switchers right here at Adobe. Check out the link here for more information:
