Adobe Premiere and After Effects Changes

The new release of Adobe’s various products change the way we work. I think it is a great improvement. I am still learning how to change my work flow. This video gives you an idea of the important changes.

I used the latest Premiere CC 2017.1 to create my CCUG video. My YouTube uploads are here.

I can make all the video in Premiere now, including opening titles where I usually use a still processed in Photoshop. I do have to save a still shot of the opening title to use on YouTube. YouTube never allows me to choose the frame I want to use. Their three choices always suck.


Adobe Premiere Pro CC 2017.1 Update

If you are using Adobe’s Premiere, you find that making titles and placing text in you video has changed, drastically. The replacement for Titles is NOT intuitive. It is better but, you need a hint or two to get started.

See: Create Titles With The New Type Tool And Essential Graphics Panel In Premiere Pro Cc 2017.1 (Spring) Released 4/19/2017.

The tutorial will get you started.

I find fancy titles are still easier to make in Photoshop. You can import them as PNG, to preserve transparency. You can also import the PSD file. All the fancy effects (AFAIK) are brought in.

The new ‘Essential Graphics’ panel can be docked. Click on the panel name, not the top window bar as in most programs, and drag to where you want it.

I did crash Premiere in the first 10 minutes…
