Know your way around Adobe Prelude!
Adobe Prelude has come as a boon to those of us who are stuck with long recordings that need to be edited out. Journalists find working with Prelude a great way to get rid of unwanted content, while retaining the important bits.
Piecing an article together has never been so easy! You can add markers and assign content to those markers. Adobe Prelude provides several markers to help disseminate and allocate content.
Marker Types In Prelude:
- Subclips: You can create subclips and different in and out points. The clips can be viewed in the project view.
- Comment: You can add a note, comment or reminder about a particular subclip.
- Chapter: The chapter markers are used to create chapter points when imported into Encore or Premier
- Web link: The web link markers are used to add a URL to clips
- Flash cue point: It is used for synchronizing graphics and for loading other video files.
- Speech transcription: Speech to text content can be manually added or edited.
Any change that you add in Prelude or any marker you create, will automatically be updated in Adobe Premier. So that makes the editing process a breeze.
