“Jump-start your production with Prelude CS6? with Wes Plate, seminar recording and notes

Adobe by Todd Kopriva

Recently, Adobe Prelude product manager Wes Plate presented a seminar introducing Adobe Prelude CS6.

If you don’t yet have Adobe Prelude, you can order it with CS6 Production Premium now … or try it free for 30 days.

Wes covered a lot of useful and interesting material, both in the main presentation and in the question-and-answer segment at the end.

Here’s a brief outline of what Wes talked about, as well as some links to more information about each subject:

What is Adobe Prelude?
Adobe Prelude is an application for ingesting, logging, and optionally transcoding tapeless media and assembling clips into rough cuts for use in an NLE (a nonlinear editing application). In addition to the summary in Wes’s presentation, both video2brain and Lynda.com have summaries that answer the question “What is Adobe Prelude?” in their video training courses.

Adobe Prelude intentionally has low system requirements compared with Premiere Pro, allowing Prelude to function on the sorts of inexpensive laptop computers likely to be used in the field and by production assistants and others who are given the task of logging large amounts of footage.

Adobe Prelude is not a direct replacement for OnLocation, which is an application that was used for tape-based media and is not included in Creative Suite 6 or Creative Cloud software packages. If you are using OnLocation, we encourage you to keep using it. read more...
