Skill Level Beginner
In this movie, we're going to pick up where we left off in the last movie. If you haven't watched the previous movie on rendering from Adobe SpeedGrade, be sure to go back and watch that movie. So what I actually want to do in this movie is I want to import the file that we exported from SpeedGrade here into Adobe Premiere Pro, and what I'm going to do is remarry that file with things like text and audio. So before we actually import the clip that we rendered from SpeedGrade, let me go ahead and show you the original sequence that I had here inside of Adobe Premiere Pro. It's this guy right here called Guitar Sequence. And if I scrub through the sequence, you can see it's the same shots that we saw inside of SpeedGrade, but there are also some text elements.
And if I go ahead and play back, there is some audio. (music playing) Okay, so what I actually did to send this sequence to SpeedGrade was I duplicated it over here in the Project panel and I created this sequence right here called Guitar Sequence_EDL PREP. And in that sequence what I essentially did was just strip off the titles and the audio, because all I really cared about was grading these shots. I didn't really care about the audio and I didn't really care about the titles. And plus, the titles wouldn't go over to SpeedGrade regardless. So I sent this over to SpeedGrade, we graded it, and then as we saw in the previous movie, I rendered out these shots.
So now it's time to get that rendered footage back into Premiere Pro. And in the previous movie, what I did was I rendered out a self-contained file of the entire sequence, so that's what I'm going to go ahead and import back in Premiere Pro. And to do that I'll double-click here on my Project panel, then I'll navigate out to my Desktop, that's where I saved this movie right here called Guitar Sequence, I'll select it, and then click Import. Next, what I'm going to do is once again duplicate the original sequence by right-clicking on it and then choosing Duplicate, and I'll simply rename this Guitar Sequence_Graded, and then I'll go ahead and open that up.
Then what I'm going to do is delete all the footage here on video track one, so I'll simply with my selection tool select these clips and then simply press Delete. Finally, the last step in remarrying this graded footage back to the text and the audio from the original sequence is to simply take the new graded file and edit it into the sequence, just like that. And now if I scrub through this, you'll notice I have my graded shots. Now one thing I like to always do is I like to compare before and after. So one way to do this is to simply copy the time code from the graded sequence, switch back over to the original sequence, type in that same time code, and now you can quickly switch between the graded shots and the original shots.
Now one more thing, you might have noticed I had a cross dissolve here at the end of the original sequence. Well, I can simply duplicate that again, or come into my Effects and search for Dissolve and there is Cross Dissolve, and I'll drag it out to the end of the shot, just like that, and now I have an exact replica of my original sequence, but now it's graded. So there you go, a little bit of workflow for importing graded footage back into Adobe Premiere Pro and marrying it back up with text and audio and other project elements.
