  1. Transitioning 3: AJA Kona Board with Adobe Premiere Pro CS 5.5

    As we transition from Final Cut Pro to another NLE, I'm running a series of tests to determine which NLE will best suit our needs.

    We have been using the AJA Kona boards for years with FCP so it's really important to me that the board work with whatever new software we go with. Happily I can now run my AJA Kona boards smoothly with CS 5.5 thanks to the new 9.0.1 Plug-In release.

    In this walkthrough I show you how to properly set up the AJA Kona board so you can do some testing yourself. It's a little different than what I'm used to from Final Cut Pro, but this brings us one step closer to transitioning away from FCP.

  2. Transitioning 2: FCP Workflow in Adobe Premiere Pro

    As we transition from Final Cut Pro to another NLE, I'm running a series of tests to determine which NLE will best suit our needs.

    One concern is whether any of the workflow that we've developed through the years in Final Cut Pro will translate to another NLE. As in the part 1 of Transitioning, we're looking at Adobe Premiere Pro. Do we have to re-train ourselves completely or develop an entirely new workflow to use Premiere? I take a look at the basic layout of the two applications and some of the basic features used in FCP to see how they translate over.

    This is not a tutorial, but more of a walkthrough to help those of you who are considering whether to stay with Final Cut Pro or transition to something else.

    UPDATE: I accidentally edited out one small section of interest. Premiere Pro includes the ability to switch the Keyboard Shortcuts to match those of Avid Media Composer and Final Cut Pro. Nice touch for those switching from either.

  3. Transitioning: FCP Project to Adobe Premiere

    As we transition from Final Cut Pro to another NLE, I'm running a series of tests to determine which NLE will best suit our needs.

    Of paramount concern is to ensure that we can still access the 1,000+ Final Cut Pro projects we have on file dating back 10 years of production. We often have to do revisions and updates, particularly for news stories.
