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.

We've seen metadata in a lot of different places in this process. But now I want to look at the metadata panel, which is the area inside Premier Pro that really consolidates all the metadata available. I'm here in Premier Pro and I'm in the meta logging work space that we've been using a lot. By default, the metadata panel is available in this work space. It's up in the right hand corner but I am just going to hit grave so we can see it larger. Here we see the extent of available metadata but actually it is all blank just list because nothing's selected.
Let me select a clip and you will see this populate. Right away, you see all the information come up in the metadata panel. And I mean, all of the information. Let's look at the different groups. First we have our clip metadata. As I was telling you, this is the information attached to the clip. Some's filled in but not all of it. If we want, we can add information here in the metadata panel. It's no different than adding information or metadata in the project panel.
In the project panel we see columns and in the metadata panel we see a really detailed view of all the metadata associated with a particular clip. By the way, if we select multiple clips, it will do its best to display metadata for all of them. But if it has different values, it will just say different values. Let's look at some more available metadata. Clip metadata, but then there is File metadata. These are the different types of metadata that are attached directly to the file.
Notice that when something's grayed out, you can't change it. So all of these things are hard wired into the file. They're still metadata, but there's metadata that you are not allowed to alter. Then we get down into some different commonly used metadata sets including the Dublin Core. As you can see, this has various pieces of information that mostly go to rights information. Rights and copyright ownership is a whole area of metadata that helps us know where things came from.
The basic group has a number of different fields to let you fill in information including rating. This is one of the easiest ones and it's also available in Bridge. And in the other parts of the interface of Premier Pro, but it's very simple to give things a rating from one to five stars. This is something where someone can go through just rating them and then later on we can sort by the rating. Or search only for the five stars, anything we want. As you go down through these, there are a combination of purpose built sets and then, in some cases, extensible sets.
For instance, Photoshop meta data. That's information that is specifically useful to Photoshop. And you know that if you bring the file into Photoshop. And don't laugh, Photoshop works on video now. All of this information will be available. As you can see, the further down you go, the more specific you get. And this is not over. One of Adobe's missions is to integrate the media types through metadata. That's why they're always looking to partner with different schemas that will be more extensible.
Right now you can send your information all around Adobe creative cloud and Adobe creative suite. But in the future, more metadata will travel outside the suite, to broadcasters, right's managers, and so on. The Key to all of this power, or at least the place where you see all of the information together, is the metadata panel.
