If you’re a video editor or want to be one, this is a good time for you to make friends with video2brain. We’ve added several great video titles to our library in the last couple months and have several more coming up.
Hot off the presses is Chad Perkins’ Getting Started with SpeedGrade CS6. Chad is an accomplished filmmaker and in this course he shares what he knows about the art of color grading in general, and the new Adobe SpeedGrade CS6 in particular. You’ll learn how to perform a basic color grade, create looks, mask footage, apply grades to multiple clips, and much more. You’ll also be initiated into some of the subtler aspects of color grading, such as blending different adjustments to get unique effects, which Chad explores in this free video.
Also recently released is Maxim Jago’s Adobe Premiere Pro CS6: Learn by Video. In this big, in-depth course (15 hours, give or take), Maxim gives you the VIP tour of Adobe’s powerful and ever-improving nonlinear editor. You’ll learn how to bring multiple media types into Premiere Pro, combine them to produce professional edits, apply effects, add titles, work with audio, and output to multiple formats, including DVD, Blu-ray, and files. For a taste check out this free video, where Maxim demonstrates JKL Dynamic Trimming, a great new feature in Premiere Pro CS6 that dramatically speeds up trimming on the Timeline.
If you want to get to work quickly and prefer a more streamlined course, you might prefer Maxim’s Getting Started with Premiere Pro CS6. In this course you’ll be introduced to the interface, learn editing essentials, and quickly get up to speed on transitions, audio, special effects, and titles. In this free lesson, you’ll see how to add special effects to a Premiere Pro project, as well as how to remove them and customize them by changing their settings.
For the advanced editor who has to handle large amounts of gigantic media files, we have the Prelude CS6 Workshop from Maxim Jago (there’s that man again). You’ll learn how to use this specialized application organize, ingest, transcode, tag, comment, subclip, and build a rough cut. Then you’ll see how easy it is to move what you’ve done over to Premiere Pro — as this free video demonstrates.
And it doesn’t stop there — we’ve got lots more video titles scheduled to be released in the next few months, including:
