Ok, I have been using Premiere Pro, After Effects, Photoshop, and Illustrator for a while and have a good work flow using them. Now I want to add production value to my work. I just started using Speed Grade a few days ago and I am impressed with what it can do. I need help. Here is my problem: Creating a usable render.
My work flow:
All my footage is shot on Canon 7D cameras at 23.976 1080p
I import my footage to Premeire Pro and edit my sequences
I then export my combined sequences to either: H.264 for bluray or Mpeg 2 for DVD
I then create a Disc Menu ect in Encore and export as a Disc Image and burn my discs
What I would like to do is add Spped grade coloring in my work flow.
I know how to export my edited sequences in Pre Pro for Speed Grade (SG). But After I get the sequences to SG: how and what settings should I use to render out and then go to Encore to create my Disc Images?
Every rednering setting I use has not worked. Both Quick Time and Microsoft Media Player say they can not play the files I render out.
What is the best way to do this? Thank you.
The better option in SG is export to DPX sequence. Import it in Premiere and do the finishing touches (audio, transitions, fades, titles, etc). From Premiere export to Bluray or DVD.
Thank you for the reply. I will give that a try. But, I do find Speedgrade's render options rather confusing. What if I make a project in After Effects, let's say a time lapse and after I've built my project and timed my shots to a sound track ect. I want to improve the color in speedgrade. After applying my color correction in SP how would I ecport it to be playable on QuickTime or Windows Media player?
