Join Maxim Jago for an in-depth discussion in this video Introduction to Prelude, part of EPK Editing: 1 Ingest to Assembly Edit.
It's quite possible if you're working with a shorter,…simpler project that you'll just import all your media…into Premiere Pro and get to work right away.…But I want to encourage you to familiarize…yourself with Adobe Prelude,…which I've got running right over here.…Prelude is one of those applications that a lot…of people have in the Creative Suite, they haven't…quite worked out what it's for, and it's really useful.…Prelude is, broadly speaking, designed for…working with large amounts of file-based media.…
I think that's what Adobe describes it as.…And it's really there for you to ingest media,…batch rename, bath metadata manage,…put comments in, that kind of thing.…In a project of this kind it's…perhaps not that big of a deal.…I'm just going to press control I here…for ingest, that's command I on a Mac.…And you can see in the ingest panel I've got…a number of bits of media here that…I can browse through and choose to ingest.…I'm just browsing on the left and choosing items…here in the main part of the ingest panel.…
Stay tuned for future courses in the series, which will cover the other steps in the workflow, all the way up to the finished music video.
