Adobe Releases Comprehensive Premiere Pro Guide for Long-form and Episodic Filmmakers
As a leader in the post-production industry, Adobe is dedicated to supporting the filmmaking and entertainment community.
For nearly two decades, Adobe has evolved Premiere Pro into a trusted editing platform for, amongst other things, long-form and episodic content.
To continue our support, we have developed a Premiere Pro best practices and workflow guide created specifically with film and television editors in mind. As of today, this comprehensive guide is free and available for download. Crafted over several years with the expertise of Adobe engineers, industry veterans, and award-winning editors, the guide offers a deep dive into the essential features in Premiere Pro that have shaped countless award-winning shows, films, and projects over the years.
Learning the ins and outs or Premiere Pro
Editors and post-production professionals will learn the ins and outs of features like Productions: first introduced in 2020, Productions has significantly improved performance and collaboration for long form and episodic editorial teams. Early versions of the feature were battle-tested on Hollywood productions such as Netflix’s MANK, Paramount Pictures’ Terminator: Dark Fate, Netflix’s Mindhunter, Netflix’s Dolemite Is My Name, and A24’s Everything Everywhere All At Once.
In addition to Productions, other key topics include hardware and settings, dailies workflows, Multi-Camera editing, Dynamic Link with After Effects, turnovers, as well as remote and cloud workflows using tools like Frame.io. We put together some highlights but you can check out the full guide at the link below. We hope this will be a helpful resource for editors around the world for years to come.
Join Adobe’s Worldwide Video Evangelist, Jason Levine, during his YouTube Livestream series starting in August 2022, for an inside look at the guide.
