Confused about Workflow??
Hey guys, I have a question about post production workflow? How do you guys handle it and in what order? Up to this point for me it has been cutting together the video, then audio, then color correction. Three basic steps. But now I am wanting to get more into visual effects. I have the Adobe Suite and never really considered After Effects part of my everyday work flow until I read that some people take their Premiere Sequences into After Effects for their color grading? This never really occurred to me to do that, but I guess the logic is when incorporating VFX it makes everything easier(?). I've also started looking at doing work in DaVinci Resolve as I have the computer specs to use it now. When I first started in video Resolve was strictly a color tool, but now some people are swearing by its ability as a fully capable NLE for not just color but cutting video as well as VFX.
So what do you guys think? What is your workflow like when working with color and some small VFX? Do you start in one program and switch to another? Or do you try to do everything in one program like Premiere and switch when you have to (say 2D animation in AE)?
