- Hi there, I'm Maxim Jago. I'm an Adobe master trainer, Grass Valley master trainer and Avid ACI, I've taught just about every kind of editor and just about every situation all around the world. I've regularly worked for Adobe as a trainer, consultant, and stage presenter. Sharing media technology goodness and helping editors or other trainers get a firm grip on the latest tools and work flows. Many of my clients are broadcast editors and it's a common challenge to have to deal with the huge quantities of media files arriving for ingest and editing.
Some editors get their assistants to make initial selections, others just follow their intuition and begin with random clip selections. Whatever your workflow, there's a good chance you will have already worked on projects with overwhelming amounts of original footage. This challenge led to the development of Prelude by Adobe. Prelude is a powerful but easy to use ingest, transcode, and logging application that makes dealing with countless media files quick and easy. Prelude uses Adobe's XMP system to add valuable metadata to media files, not just to associated clips.
This means the information you need, flows with the media from application to application, allowing for easy access to advanced workflows for file management. This course introduces the easy workflows Prelude supports and teaches you everything you need to know to browse and ingest almost any video format, add temporal markers and comments, create rough cuts and integrate your media management workflow directly into your editing phase. Thanks to Prelude's broad compatibility.
Once you understand the key technologies that make working with metadata possible, the tools Prelude offers, make perfect sense. Let's get started.
