Cooking With Premiere Pro CC on PBS's America's Test Kitchen
Cooking With Premiere Pro CC on PBS's America's Test KitchenAs America's Test Kitchen enters its 15th season on PBS, they've made the switch to Premiere Pro Creative Cloud. Post-production Supervisor and director Herb Sevush has been with the show from the beginning, and confessed some trepidation moving away from FCP 7, but has found it to be a great fit for their data-intensive, increasingly 4K multicam production, and his work with remote editors. Here, Herb offers some insights into both the why and the how of their switch, with special attention to Premiere Pro CC's approach to multicam.

Premiere Pro CC: 108 Multi-Cam Synched by Audio
Premiere Pro CC: 108 Multi-Cam Synched by AudioIn this tutorial, Andrew Devis looks at the next version of Premiere Pro and shows how it can now automatically synchronise footage in a bin by various options including timecode and AUDIO! Andrew uses multiple clips and allows Premiere Pro to synchronise these clips using audio and shows us in real time how long this process takes based on a 48 min talk and 11 clips! Andrew also goes on to show some of the changes that have taken place in the headers for video and audio tracks as well as a change in how to make multi-cam edits in the up-coming next version of Premiere Pro - valuable information for anyone working with multiple cameras.

RE:Match Non-matching Cameras in Premiere Pro
RE:Match Non-matching Cameras in Premiere ProIn this tutorial Andrew Devis demonstrates a relatively new plug-in by RE:Vision Effects called RE:Match and how it can very quickly and accurately deal with the very common problem of non-matching cameras in Premiere Pro. A typical approach to dealing with say a white balance issue would be to apply the fast color corrector and use the white balance picker, but this can be very hit and miss, while RE:Match deals with the whole image using another image or clip as the reference to match too. This very powerful effect can save a great deal of time for an everyday problem and so earn its cost back very quickly as well as giving excellent and fast results. There is another tutorial showing how this effect works in After Effects as there is a slightly different way the two applications deal with reference images.

Adobe Edge Animate/The Missing Manual Software/Book ReviewIncreasingly, web developers are being asked to create sites that are viewable on tablets and mobile devices, as well as desktops and laptops running Windows, OS X or Linux. One of the challenges in creating a site like that is animation. Flash, for many years the preferred cross-platform animation solution, is no longer supported on many tablets and mobile devices. Michael looks for - and finds - answers within Adobe's Edge Animate.

Premiere Pro CS6 Techniques: 107 Rolling Shutter Repair
Premiere Pro CS6 Techniques: 107 Rolling Shutter RepairIn this final tutorial in this Premiere Pro Basics (CS6 & above) series, Andrew Devis shows how to use the Rolling Shutter Repair effects which deals with the problem of footage from a camera phone or a DSLR (CMOS sensors) which look wobbly or jelly-like when panned quickly. The obvious solution is to avoid fast pans with this type of camera, if possible. However, sometimes you have no choice and then need to clean up the end result to stop your audience from feeling sea-sick! The Rolling Shutter Repair is a very powerful tool to deal with this issue and make sure your footage looks more like you originally intended it to look.
