Organization is key to a successful post-production workflow. This course picks up where the end of your shoot leaves off and before editing begins—when you need to import, organize, and log your footage. Jason Osder shows how to import all different types of assets, from stills to soundtracks, and how to sort and annotate your footage in Adobe Premiere Pro. Plus, learn a few tricks involving Bridge and Prelude (like batch renaming) that will cut your logging time in half.

You may have noticed that you can do a lot of the same things with markers as you can with sub clips. In particular, once you have a duration and a name on a marker, in a lot of ways it operates a lot like a sub clip. Not exactly but the purpose is similar. So how do you decide whether to lay in markers to remind you where things are inside a clip versus sub clipping that clip. Well, the answer is, it's kind of up to you, your preference.
There is a lot of overlap in some of these organizational techniques, but that's good, because different projects are different, and I'll give you a quick example to talk about flexibility. Sometimes, you apply organization at different parts of a project. So maybe you've taken an interview or some observational footage, and you've sub clipped it based on content. What's actually going on in the scene or the inverview. But then, later on in your edit, you realize that you want a different type of montage.
Not the scene that was taking place, but maybe one of those mini-scenes where everyone gives a similar looks, a camera, or a smile, or a wink, or a nod. Just we're going to through them identifying these people. It's not about what their saying, it's about something different, a facial expression. So then, you or the assistant editor just goes through both clips and subclips laying in markers for smiles or frowns, or whatever that is. And in this case, we've got both sub clips in play for content, and then markers in play just for something visual.
It's just an example, but my point is, you need to adapt these things to your workflow. That's how they're most powerful.
