Join Patrick Inhofer for an in-depth discussion in this video Direct Link to Premiere Pro, part of Up and Running with SpeedGrade CC.
…In this movie we'll take a few minutes to explore direct linking…out of SpeedGrade back to Premiere Pro CC for our final output.…And because direct link has us working in an actual Premiere Pro project file.…That means we must use Premier to handle our final renders and deliverables.…If you have access to the project files open…1104 direct link to Premiere and now open up the…death scene SpeedGrade cc 23976 sequence.…We're back in the scene from death scenes…which we used in our original exploration of…direct link back in chapter three which covers…direct link details I won't be repeating here.…
I've also gone ahead and made a few changes in Premiere…and then did an initial grade from scratch on this timeline.…Back in Premiere I added two Adjustment layers.…This first I designated as a shot matching layer.…And the second being a top level…broadcast safe filter that's over the entire timeline.…Notice I put the broadcast safe layer above even the graphics and titles layer,…since I want to make sure these elements are also affected by this filter.…

Q: Why am I getting the 'File Not Supported' error when reconnecting to the source files in Premiere Pro?
A: If you get the 'File Not Supported' error when reconnecting to the source files in Premiere Pro - this is a problem with the reconnect dialog in <div id="pastingspan1">Premiere Pro that Adobe has not yet fixed. Everything is fine with the media and the projects. To get around this 'bug':</div><div> </div> <div id="pastingspan1"></div> <blockquote style="margin: 0 0 0 40px; border: none; padding: 0px;"> <div id="pastingspan1">1. Open the Premiere Pro project in Premiere.</div><div> </div> <div id="pastingspan1"></div> <div id="pastingspan1">2. During the reconnect dialog click Locate and navigate to Exercise files > Media and then to the sub-folder of media the dialog is asking for...</div><div> </div> <div id="pastingspan1"></div> <div id="pastingspan1">3. Here is the trick: You MUST actually select/highlight the first file that Premiere is asking for. The easiest thing is to click the 'display</div> <div id="pastingspan1">exact name' button and then *actually click on the file* that matches the name.</div><div> </div> </blockquote> <div id="pastingspan1"></div> <div id="pastingspan1">*If you don't highlight the file*--navigating to the folder and *clicking ok without selecting the file will give you the 'file not supported' error</div> <div id="pastingspan1">each and every time*. You must select the file that matches - Premiere is not smart enough to just figure out the folder contains the file.</div><div> </div> <div id="pastingspan1"></div> <div id="pastingspan1">This is not something that is unique to this training its just a little quirk of Premiere Pro currently.</div><div> </div> <div id="pastingspan1"></div> <div id="pastingspan1">After you select the first file all the other files should reconnect - assuming you have 'relink others automatically' selected.</div>
