    workflow for CC from PP. - ideas?

    besq
      I'm interested in CS4 workflow is to link project from PP -> AE for keylight and colour correction.

       

      I've played with it this afternoon and have mixed feelings ...

       

      What do people prefer:

       

      Edit in PP then dynamic link sequence to Ae and grade a whole sequence, retaining the live link to PP.

       

      Edit in PP then C&P or import into Ae losing dynamic link but retaining seperate clips for individual correction.

       

      I can't predict which may produce the most flexible/efficient results in the long haul.

       

      The dynamic link appears to be a bit half baked for me so far, working well in some directions some of the time.

       

      Any thoughts and experiences would be gratefully recieved.

       

      Thanks.

          I would go with:

          "Edit in PP then C&P or import into Ae losing dynamic link but retaining seperate clips for individual correction"

          for 2 reasons.

           

          1. if you have any fades between scenes with different CC, you need to have done the CC before the fade.

          2. normally you will want to apply the same CC to every occurance of a certain clip. If each clip is on its own layer, this will be much easier.
