Can you postpone your editing career?

Do you know what is the best and the worst part of running a YT channel? That I feel obligated to provide you value in some way. Usually, in a form of regularly uploaded YT videos. Right... regularly 🙂 The truth is I'm unable to post regularly at the moment. I had a bunch of […]

What's New in Premiere Pro 2021 (15.0)

The title says it all - Premiere Pro 15.0 is here. There are a few new features in Adobe's video ecosystem and I think of it as my duty to let you know about them, together with my commentary 🙂 1. New Captions Workflow Meaning the new Text panel I already talked about in the […]

Premiere Pro will transcribe your footage

I took a first look at the early access version of the speech-to-text feature in Premiere Pro. As a reminder, Adobe announced a new Captioning Workflow coming to Premiere (at last!). You can already test it yourself in Premiere Pro Beta as I did in this video: But they also announced an automatic speech-to-text feature meaning […]

Can someone be successful being an editor only?

Is it possible to be successful strictly as an editor? Or do you have to be kind of 'Jack of all trades'? That question was asked by Ricardo, the Editing Chef student, during our third live session in the course.  You may have found yourself in a situation when a client asks if you can […]

Everything you need to know about Audition’s Remix feature

This is an extract from The Editing Chef. While it can always be done manually, Audition’s remix feature uses powerful AI to shorten or lengthen virtually any piece of instrumental* music. Because it can save a lot of work, or whenever you are stuck trying manually (or simply arrhythmic), it’s often worth a try. Often […]

It used to be the WORST Premiere Pro panel. NOT ANYMORE!

The old Captions panel was in not only my opinion the worst panel in Premiere Pro. Very buggy and you couldn’t rely on a solid performance within it. So as far as I understand they will deprecate the old panel and replace it with a brand new Text panel. It will actually have 2 sections. […]

Scene Cut Detection (Premiere Pro vs DaVinci Resolve)

I’ve always used Resolve to automatically detect cuts for a rendered video. Adobe just announced that Premiere Pro will have that option as well. But how does it compare to Resolve? First, I need to stress the fact that this feature is still in development. I’m using a beta build to check how it works […]

Kyno on steroids (1.8 release)

Kyno 1.8 will be most useful for Blackmagic Design fans but all users will appreciate Incremental Transcoding and some of the other updates. Here's a video I made about the features I consider to be most relevant to most people including myself. Full List of Updates Blackmagic RAW support Playback and transcoding for Blackmagic RAW […]

What’s new in Premiere Pro 14.2

"Efficiency and Performance to Maximize Creativity" is Adobe's logline for May 2020 release. Let's see what it's all about. Not a long time ago Productions were introduced to Premiere Pro and now we get another update. What a treat! 🙂 Filter the Effect Controls Panel There's a new funnel icon at the bottom of the […]

All about Productions Workflow (Premiere Pro 14.1)

'Productions' is the next stage in the evolution of a project file. And while the most benefits are for teams of editors working on shared storage, even solo editors may find it very useful. I week ago I published a video overview of that new feature. I need to admit, that it's hard to explain […]
