It's time to talk about some alternate work flows, using programs like Adobe Bridge and Prelude. Let's talk about Bridge first. When would you want to use Adobe Bridge? Well, it's helpful to know that Adobe Bridge is sort of a browser for browsing visual media. It comes from a photography base. But it's been expanded to do a lot of good things with video. I think it'll make more sense if we take a look. So let me open Bridge from inside Premiere, and you'll see what I'm talking about.
I'm here in Premiere, and if I go to any piece of media, I'm going to use a photograph in this case. But we'll look at video also. And I do a right-click. Notice that I have a lot of reveal options including reveal in Adobe bridge which will launch the program. I'm going to do that. Here we are in Adobe Bridge and the way I think you should think about it. Is a very robust browser, by which I mean similar to the way you use the Finder's browser or the Premiere Pro browser, but this browser is particularly good with visual media and with metadata.
You can look at absolutely all of your relevant metadata in Adobe Bridge. So, why would you want to use this application instead of premiere, well mostly it comes at times when you wanted to do robust work with metadata including in batches such as changing files or adding ratings or other information to a lot of files in an easy way. We are going to see how to do this in the upcoming movies
