Adobe has released a comprehensive Premiere Pro Guide aimed specifically at long-form and episodic filmmakers.
Adobe has curated the vast amount of often hard won knowledge from close to two decades of Adobe Premiere Pro non-linear editing into a single, downloadable document, The Adobe Premiere Pro Best Practices & Workflow Guide. Effectively it’s a deep-dive anthology of expert, step-by-step advice and illustrated examples, written by a team of industry experts and leading Adobe engineers.
The idea is that users are not continuously reinventing the wheel, but have a single resource that provides a detailed look at the recommendations and vetted procedures that have worked for some of its high profile customers over the years.
As such it unsurprisingly covers a broad range of essential topics; everything from how to configure and optimize your settings, to establishing best practices for offline dailies and navigating the remaining workflow all the way through turnovers and final deliverables.
Other key topics include:
