Adobe has just released a best practices and workflow guide for filmmakers. The Adobe Best Practices and Workflow Guide for Long Form and Episodic Post Production guide was created specifically for film and television editors to help them deal with the slings and arrows of a modern digital post-production workflow.
Crafted over several years by industry veterans, award-winning editors, and Adobe engineers, the guide takes a deep dive into the essential features of Adobe Premiere Pro and offers tips and tricks to streamline long-form workflows and provide better performance and efficiency.
Adobe Productions: Adobe Productions has been developed specifically to manage long-form and episodic editorial workflows. Productions were field tested on productions such as Terminator: Dark Fate and several Netflix original programs such as Mindhunter, MANK, and Dolemite is My Name.
Productions outline how to break up your project into production and teach how to organize and understand Adobe’s new video clip referencing scheme.
Hardware and Settings: With this chapter, the guide outlines the best computer setups to meet workflow needs and how setting preferences for high-end workflows can make them easier to manage.
Working with Dailies: this section will discuss how an editor can quickly and efficiently put together daily video summaries for reviewing the day’s original footage
Multi-Camera editing: This explains how to confidently create a multi-camera workflow and get to work on them without losing track.
Dynamic Linking with After Effects: Outlines working with titles and visual effects from After Effects directly in the Premiere Pro timeline without rendering, through dynamic linking. This guide also takes a look at the best practices for a collaborative editorial environment.
Turnovers: This chapter includes how to turn over your project to colorists, audio mixers, and visual effects crew, without losing control of the overall workflow, and what settings are best for doing so.
Remote and Cloud-based workflows: Lastly, this chapter will take users through techniques for managing Adobe’s new Cloud collaboration atmosphere, as well as managing team members all over the world.
The Adobe Best Practices and Workflow Guide for Long Form and Episodic Post Production is available for download at the Adobe Support Website. Adobe Evangelist Jason Levine will also be offering a weekly Livestream on YouTube starting August 5th, going even deeper into the concepts outlined in the guide.
