Rough cutting with Prelude

There's one more feature of Adobe Prelude that I want to point out. And that's that you can make a very rudimentary Rough cut right inside Adobe Prelude and then pass that forward to Adobe Premier Pro. We're here in Prelude and as you can see I've already made some subclips like we did in the last movie. There they are, you can see what their icon looks like. That's important because if you want to make a Rough cut that has portions of clips and not just strings whole clips together, that's done with subclips.

There's no marking it in and out like you would do in a non-linear. You make the subclips and then you arrange them. So we've got some subclips and some undivided clips and now I want to start a new Rough cut. That button's right there, and it's going to actually save this as a type of project file. That's not a big deal because we're still going to be able to send this to Premier Pro automatically. I'm going to call this Int for interview and then string out because that's how I think of these.

We're not really editing. We're just sort of roughly ordering clips. They'll be no audio adjustments. They'll be no cover shots or L cuts. it's just cut to cut but sometimes it is useful to roughly order things in Prelude. I'm going to save this on the desktop but you can save yours wherever you want. By default, these will go in the Adobe documents folder and that maybe fine for some purposes because it is not often that you'll actually use this file. Here you see how a Rough cut looks in Prelude.

I can double click the Rough cut to open it in Prelude's timeline but I can also move to rough cut view that will give me a little more space to work. As you can see, Rough cut view features the monitor, the timeline and the Project panel only. When I say it's rudimentary, it is rudimentary. You can drag clips down, and order them but that is about it. As you can see that we'll insert and you can see that my subclips are quite a bit longer than my finished clips.

It's not necessarily unusual, that you would combine these. But it might be more normal that you would subclip everything, or subclip nothing Any way you do it, you can order clips in a Rough cut, but that's about it. Just like everything else you do in Prelude, it's no problem to send this to Premiere Pro. Just right-click, Send to Premiere Pro, and it becomes a sequence in the Premiere Pro interface. If you already have a project open, it's added to that project. If Premier Pro's not open it asks you to create a new project.

So there you have it, rudimentary rough cutting inside Prelude. Again, some of the reasons you would do this is because you're out in the field and need to work very quickly but there's something to communicate by ordering clips. Or maybe there's an assistant who can do this type of work but isn't yet trained on the full non linear
