Video: Examining the other apps that come with Premiere

It's good to know that when you purchase Premiere, even if you just purchased Premiere by itself, you actually get a load of several other applications that are very helpful as well. One of those we have already talked about is Adobe Bridge, which is a great file browsing application, and as we have talked about, it's a great file importer as well. As you see a click that you like, just double-click it. If you have launched Bridge from Premiere, all you have to do is double-click it and you will import files. To launch Bridge from Premiere, just go to File and then Browse in Bridge.

Examining the other apps that come with Premiere

It's good to know that when you purchase Premiere, even if you just purchased Premiere by itself, you actually get a load of several other applications that are very helpful as well. One of those we have already talked about is Adobe Bridge, which is a great file browsing application, and as we have talked about, it's a great file importer as well. As you see a click that you like, just double-click it. If you have launched Bridge from Premiere, all you have to do is double-click it and you will import files. To launch Bridge from Premiere, just go to File and then Browse in Bridge.

Another very interesting application that comes with Premiere is Adobe OnLocation. This is a Capture program. So if you hook up your camera to your computer, let's say you have a laptop in the field, you can actually record directly to disk from OnLocation, It's almost like capturing footage with tape, except instead of capturing to tape, you are recording directly to the computer. So you don't have to worry about expensive media and that type of thing for your camera. Here in OnLocation, you can also create a Shot List, and you could create a Shot Placeholder, and you could make your Shot List here.

Then as you shoot in the field, you could link up what you have shot with these empty placeholders to make sure you don't miss anything. It's here in OnLocation that you could also add metadata to the clips that you have recorded, so as you bring them into Premiere from OnLocation, that you can automatically search for certain lines of dialog, and that type of thing. There is a few Camera Calibration tools, such as the Waveform and the Vector Scope here, which allow you to look at what your camera is looking at, not through the Viewfinder, but through a really intelligent analysis of what's going on there.

So you can make the necessary changes. There is, of course one, of my favorite applications. That's Adobe Encore. Adobe Encore is a very high-end DVD and Blu-ray authoring application. It actually creates Flash video websites, which are pretty cool, too, from the same project. So I love Encore. I do a lot of the Encore training on lynda.com. So feel free to check out that application. It's very easy to use. If you have used Premiere, and you feel even slightly comfortable with Premiere, Encore will be a breeze. And before you know it, you will be making very complex DVD projects with the drop of a button.

It comes with this huge library, with several sets of different types of Projects: already-made DVD, menus, and buttons, and shapes, and all kinds of cool things. So Premiere isn't just Premiere, Premiere is this huge suite of applications, even if you just buy Premiere by itself, without Production Premium or the Adobe Master Collection. Now, one other application I want to tell you about that's not really an application technically, it's called Adobe Story. If you are in the video world, Video Story might be a real benefit to you.

It's a new developing technology. It's free. It's online. You can find it here at labs.adobe.com/technologies/story. Basically, it's made for screenwriters. It's made for the preproduction phase of creating a video. The intelligence behind this is that you will create your script in Adobe Story. Then you will take your Adobe Story text, the script that you have created in Adobe Story, you will be able to take that into OnLocation. Then when you are in OnLocation, you could link up the clips with the script from Adobe Story.

Then that script that you have written, the dialog, that will stay attached to those clips throughout the editing process, and you could reference that throughout OnLocation, throughout Premiere, throughout Encore, throughout After Effects. So Adobe is really trying to create a very kind of futuristic workflow, where everything is connected, and if you want to find character or a prop or anything, you can just do a Search, and all that data will be in the clips. It will be embedded in the metadata of the clips, and that starts here in Adobe Story. So while that does not necessarily come with Premiere, everybody has access to Adobe Story.

And as for right now, it's free. I have seen this work, and it's pretty intelligent. It goes through your script, and it can actually recognize different characters by the formatting, based on screenplay formatting, recognizes characters, locations, and that type of thing. It can organize the stuff and get you ready to create a Shot List, and that type of stuff. So it's a really great little application, especially with that free price tag. So anyways, just a little brief introduction here to the other applications that come with Premiere.
