Adobe CS6: 5 Editing Tips for Music Videos

VashiVisuals by Vashi Nedomansky

In Part One of my behind the scenes look into the production of “PIMP in the SERP,” I exposed how we prepped and shot the video with no budget and only 69 minutes of access to a downtown Los Angeles skyscraper.

In Part Two, I want to walk you through the post-production workflow of how I cut, colored and accomplished the sound mix in 4 days.

I would like to share 5 Adobe CS6 editing tips that will save you time, energy and hopefully a couple brain cells as we all know how strenuous and taxing low budget productions can be! I’ve been using Adobe Creative Suite almost exclusively for the past several years and will focus on how I use Adobe Premiere, After Effects and Audition to speed up my workflow and get high quality results in the shortest time possible. I don’t want to be cooped up in my edit cave too long…there is a world out there that I would like to see while the sun is still up! The project will still be there when you come back…have no fear.

TIP #1 – BINS, BINS and MORE BINS.

The best way to have an effective workflow is to organize your project. The time you spend up front will be paid back tenfold once you are buried deep in the edit. Bins are your friend. Make a lot them. Make a few more. Try not to float assets in the project window, as it will bite you in the ass. One of the biggest time-sucks is hunting down one rogue file that is hidden amongst dozens, if not hundreds of multi media files with different extensions and version numbers. Your eyes will bleed and your brain will turn mushy after one too many “needle-in-the-haystack” endless searches. read more...
