Like a lot of people I have started looking for an alternative to FCP and Color since it seems like apple is dragging their feet a bit. However, during my switch process, I am encountering a few problems.
My biggest problem is in the color correction department. I love the color correction effects that you can use in PP, however when editing a large amount of clips on huge timelines, it becomes time consuming to have to click on each clip to gets its effects to come up in the window.
In FCP you can gang a sequence to the viewer monitor and when the playhead moves the color correction adjustments change to whatever clip you are on. Same with Color. move the playhead and the adjustments change to whatever is associated with the clip, making it really efficient to color correct.
So...... does anyone know a similar way to use PP in the same way.
Thanks in advance for your help.
also, anyone know where the zoom transitions went on CS5 for mac?
I don't know how to do that in PP. I use MB Looks for CC and the best I can offer is to copy and paste down the line. I will grade one clip and then paste those settings to the rest of appropriate clips in that scene, tweaking when necessary.
Hope that helps!
I dont recall it working that way in FCP but whatever... it certainly would be nice to have that in PPRO as a CC workflow.
At the moment it is clip by clip.
