Master adobe premiere pro cc 2014


If you’ve sầu been caught in an embarrassing situation by the local 6 o’clochồng news crew, then you’ll appreciate that professional đoạn phim editors often must protect the innocent by obscuring people’s faces in broadcasts, and in some cases, they may need to lớn avoid trademark infringement by blurring company or hàng hóa logos. A new feature in Adobe Premiere Pro CC 2014 can make that a much less tedious task.

Premiere Pro CC 2014 lets you designate a “master clip,” to which you can apply effects that are then applied lớn all instances of the clip on your timeline.

Bad boys, bad boys

You’ve seen it on “Cops,” on “20-đôi mươi,” even on the local television news—blurred-out faces of people, or blurred-out logos (or offensive sầu statements) on subjects’ T-shirts. Why? It can be khổng lồ avoid revealing a confidential source, to lớn get someone lớn talk on camera who wouldn’t otherwise, or simply khổng lồ prsự kiện a known—and litigious—brand from being accidentally associated with a controversial subject. (Would you want your company’s hình ảnh sản phẩm seen plastered on the chest of a just-arrested arson suspect?)

The blurring process can be challenging in video, but Premiere Pro CC’s new Masking and Tracking features ayên ổn to make the process a tad easier. Select a clip in the timeline, add an appropriate effect (for example, Mosaic) to the clip, cliông xã a button in the Effects Controls panel lớn create a mask, then rekích thước và position the mask over the offending portion of the video. Cliông chồng another button to analyze the clip. As Premiere Pro analyzes, it creates a series of keyframes—one per frame.


With Premiere Pro CC 2014’s new Masking & Tracking feature lets you implement a simple mask to lớn obscure faces, và then it will track that mask as your subject moves.

The process was a little slow on my getting-up-there workstation—about a frame per second—but with the right clip, it worked pretty well. The “right” clip means one in which the subject doesn’t turn away from the camera or go behind other objects, though some head movement seemed khổng lồ be okay. If the subject does go behind an object, you’ll have sầu to lớn stop the operation, move the playhead to lớn a point where the subject is visible, & continue the operation. If you want to obscure multiple subjects, then you must create multiple masks, và persize the tracking operation multiple times. The key to lớn success with this procedure is to position the mask over relatively constant portions of the frame—inside the borders of a face, or over the solid background of a T-shirt.

As with previous versions, you can incorporate motion graphics created in Adobe After Effects into lớn Premiere Pro projects. Now, however, you can edit the text of those graphics without leaving Premiere Pro. You must have sầu After Effects installed, too, & you must have enabled an option to unlochồng the text layers in After Effects before you add the graphics composition, but if you’ve sầu done that, you can see the text layers as lines in a Premiere Pro panel, in which you simply retype what you want.

You can’t change text properties or spacing, và you certainly can’t change anything else in the After Effects composition. But this feature can be really useful if you often reuse graphics—and, say, all you want lớn vày is change the date or a name. If you bởi vì need khổng lồ update colors or other elements of your motion graphics, you’ll have to lớn do so in After Effects, but when you do so and save sầu your work, the graphic, of course, will get updated automatically in Premiere Pro.

For you to be able to make text edits lớn After Effects compositions, you must have After Effects installed & the “Template (unlocked text layers editable in Premiere Pro” option turned on in After Effects.

I am your master

A useful feature in Premiere Pro is that you can select a clip in the timeline, then use “Paste attributes” with other clips in the timeline lớn copy all of the first clip’s effects và effects implementations. Using this feature can ensure some consistency, but it can be time-consuming, và if you change one clip’s effects, you have sầu lớn go baông chồng & use Paste attributes all over again. But now Premiere Pro lets you designate a “master clip”: Display a clip in the Source window, drop effects onto the Source window (not the timeline), và wherever that clip appears in the timeline, the same effects & effects implementations will be seen. It has lớn be one clip; you can’t “link” different clips. Premiere Pro still has adjustment layers, which affect multiple clips under them in the timeline, & you can still add effects to lớn individual clips in the timeline, of course.

Adobe touts new TypeKit support in Premiere Pro CC năm trước, but really, it’s just a new links under the Title menu that says Add Fonts from TypeKit. Clicking it opens in a browser window; there, you can select open-source fonts for miễn phí. But it all happens outside of Premiere Pro—unlike in Dreamweaver CC năm trước, which provides a fonts display window. Any fonts you select on get synced with your system via the Creative sầu Cloud application, not Premiere Pro; afterward, you can use the fonts with any of your applications, not just Adobe ones. You’ll need lớn restart Premiere Pro before you can use the fonts.


You can now make simple text edits khổng lồ After Effects motion compositions in your Premiere Pro projects.

Now that 1080p nội dung has become old-school, it’s nice to know that Premiere Pro is improving its ability lớn handle 4K media. It supports GPU-accelerated debayering (processing or converting) of Red 4K truyền thông, so you don’t need Red’s dedicated $4750 expansion card for that. Adobe says you’ll still get “slightly better” performance with Red’s card, but GPU acceleration should be loads faster than software-based processing. Premiere Pro CC năm trước formally supports GPU acceleration with even more graphics cards, too, but it still allows you lớn turn on GPU acceleration with almost any graphics thẻ that has a minimum of 1GB of VRAM.

When I installed Premiere Pro CC năm trước, it did not replace Premiere Pro CC, its predecessor; you’d think that a so-called cloud-based application would simply update itself. Adobe says this was a conscious decision made because projects that have been created or even opened and then saved in Premiere Pro CC năm trước cannot be opened in Premiere Pro CC, & certainly not in Premiere Pro CS6, if you’re clinging to lớn that version. See a features comparison of Premiere Pro versions. The only difference between the Mac and Windows versions of Premiere Pro CC năm trước is that you can’t encode to Apple’s ProRes codec on Windows machines.

Bottom line

I don’t have sầu any significant gripes about Premiere Pro CC 2014, but even if I did, it’s possible that they might be addressed as soon as I opened my mouth: The application received significant updates in June, July, và December 2013, & again in June 2014 (this release). It’s a cloud application that doesn’t actually live sầu in the cloud or provide access lớn cloud-based processing power, but it is certainly reaping the benefits of a cloud application’s update schedule.
