Screenlight: Collaborating with Team Projects in Adobe Premiere Pro

There's always a level of ambiguity around beta software, and Adobe's Team Projects no different. How does it work? Who's it for? This Screenlight blog post written by Adobe Certified Trainer, Nick Harauz, answers those questions in one of the most definitive Team Projects tutorials to date. Specifically, this post focuses on collaborating with Team Projects in Premiere Pro, not After Effects. (Remember, Team Projects does not support Dynamic Link with After Effects at this time.) Nick covers everything you need to know to get started with Team Projects: creating a Team Project, sharing, media mapping, conflict resolution and version history. He also has a section on Ingest settings, which includes how to setup a proxy workflow in Team Projects.

Working with multiple team members in post- production has been simplified with Team Projects. The new feature is available in the latest release of Creative Cloud. To use it, you’ll need a Creative Cloud account for Teams or Enterprise. Once you’re setup, Premiere Pro, After Effects and Prelude allow for multiple video editors, producers and motion graphic designers to work simultaneously in each application sharing various versions of there work. —Nick Harauz, Screenlight Blog

Screenlight: The Definitive Guide to Adobe Premiere Pro's Media Cache

Premiere Pro's media cache is mysterious. Even today, I have to remind myself not to be afraid of it. Thankfully, there's this new guide from Screenlight, a blog post written by Premiere Pro trainer Jason Cox. He defines the media cache as a collection of "helper files" for Premiere Pro. Jason goes on to explain the different types of files and how to manage them. Great post!

Video editors deal with a lot of files. Beyond the of thousands of media files, render files, autosaves, and backups, the last thing we want to think about is additional… anything. But the dirty secret is, there are probably files on your system right now, devouring precious hard drive space and you have no idea they’re there! ::cue dramatic music:: Welcome to Premiere’s Media Cache! —Jason Cox, Screenlight Blog

Screenlight: Who Needs a Mouse? Keyboard Editing in Premiere Pro

Speed up your offline/rough cut editing by ditching the mouse for these keyboard shortcuts. Jason Cox makes another appearance on the Screenlight blog with this post on keyboard editing in Premiere Pro.

I can’t say it’s always faster 100% of the time, and there are certain tasks that must be accomplished with the mouse, but in an early stage offline edit/rough cut, you can toss the mouse aside and select clips, in and outs, create sequences, overwrite and insert clips, trim and tweak timing, and more before you ever need to touch the little rodent. —Jason Cox, Screenlight Blog

Premiere Pro trainer Jason Cox makes another appearance on the Screenlight blog. This time he shows how to do keyframe interpolation in Premiere Pro.

Keyframe interpolation is important because it will help your animation appear smooth and more natural. To learn more, visit: Controlling Effect Changes Using Keyframe Interpolation in Premiere Pro.
