Looking for a Mentor

27 January 2014 - 09:19 AM

My friend seainggreen told me that she found a professional on this board who provided her with mentoring when she was a newbie.

Are any of you available to help me with Adobe Premier Pro CC?

Workflow and Colour Correction with Adobe Premier

27 January 2014 - 09:12 AM

Hi all,

Apologies if this has been asked before but I can't seem to search using Taptalk.

I'm new to video but I'm having great fun with it. Here are some samples of the best I've done to date from Chuuk Lagoon and Lake Crescent.

I really want to get more efficient with my editing and was wondering about developing an efficient workflow from ingestion through final rendering. Is Prelude worth the time for ingestion and rough edit? Also, how do you guys work, (E.g. Ingest, rough cut, sync to music, colour correct, etc)? I typically start with a theme, pick the music then futz forever in a disorganized inefficient cluster f... of frustration. I'd like to skip that part for future projects.

What is really making me nuts is colour correction. As a guy, I really only know 8 colours but Premier seems to think that there is more too it than that and presents a bewildering array of choices that I just don't understand. I typically use the fast colour corrector, randomly mess with it till I find something I almost like and call it good. I'm sure that there has to be some value in the other correctors, scopes etc. but they are beyond my current skill level. Are there any good books or online training sources available? The Adobe training doesn't really address underwater video and is superficial at best.

Thank you very much in advance!!
