Adobe Prelude CC

If you have been video editing for some time now, I’m sure you are already in love with Adobe Prelude CC. And if you’re not yet in love with it, check it out and I’m sure you will be in no time.  Adobe Prelude CC is an Adobe product that allows you to add important metadata during the video ingestion process. Prelude is the first step in creating an easier workflow when working on a long and tedious production. It gets the job done tremendously well and that’s why I just love it.

What’s more, this tool has just recently received some important updates that greatly improved my video editing experience. I’m telling the San Francisco Bay Area video production community these things because I also want you to experience what I have experienced.

Important Adobe Prelude CC Updates

Adobe Prelude CCWith Adobe Prelude CC, you have a streamlined productions process because the tools that you’re using are well connected and designed specifically for logging workflows and video ingest. The integration is just so amazing it will blow your mind. Here are some of its important updates:

  • Easily rename files on ingest

This update allows you to have presets of filenames that will automatically rename files the moment they are ingested to whatever media you choose. This makes remembering and searching files a lot easier.

  • Personalize metadata on ingest

Prelude allows you to create your own metadata templates so that you can now easily collect important information about the video and this becomes part of the ingest workflow.

  • Support for new media formats

GoPro camera owners avoid Prelude because of its lack of support for the latter’s media format. Now GoPro lovers have the ability to upload their footage through Prelude for a much more seamless workflow.

  • Generate markers that you can print

If you need to share notes with your producer, you will have no problem listing markers and printing them because it’s easy to generate with Prelude.

  • Exporting of rough cuts

Adobe Prelude CCSharing of rough cuts is faster by exporting directly to Adobe Media Encoder or to Adobe Premiere Pro in case it needs final editing.

Adobe Prelude CC received a lot of important updates recently but I believe these are the most important ones. Those who are in the San Francisco Bay Area video production community will definitely love these updates as it makes a lot of things easier.

Adobe video editing software just keeps getting better every year, making the lives of video editors, both professionals and hobbyist, a lot easier.
