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 been working with various transfer options using Prelude and I want to look at one of the most powerful ones, which is trans coding your footage. Let's see how it works. We're right where we left off in Prelude, and if you remember, the last time we transferred, we actually moved the files to a different location on Transfer. This time I want to not move the files but transcode them, and as a refresher transcoding is changing the format and the codec of the file to a different format. In this case one used for editing.
So I've already clicked the Transfer Clip to Destination box and now I want to click the Transcode box. I may or may not want to add a subfolder in this case. But if I did, it might be something like converted, or transcoded. Just to note, that that's the new type we're saving. Next I'm going to choose the Quicktime format, and then this is important. All you have access to, are presets. So those are both, the building presets that come with Encoder because that's the engine that's going to do these transcodes or custom presets that we save.
As you can see I've already saved a custom preset called ProRes for editing. If you need to know how to create custom presets, just look for Adobe Media Encoder Instruction, on lynda.com. One more note, which is, if you want to add it in ProRes, as your editing format, you do need to have certain Apple software installed on your computer. With these settings not only will the clips be added to the prelude project but also new clips will be written based on the preset format that you've set.
If you're bringing in a lot of different types of footage and you don't want it to mix together, then each time select the same preset for transcoding and you'll be creating new versions of the media that all match in format and codec.
