PART 3: Roadtrip Post Production Tips

Editing on the Road with Premiere Clip By Ko Maruyama
It's summertime, and, for some, that means that it's time for a road trip. A road trip is a big adventure, and like other events that are meaningful to us, we wanna share them - at least with friends & family. Unfortunately, recreating the same experience is impossible, but you can create great video travelogues with your iPhone and Premiere Clip. Here are my top five tips for sharing your trip with friends and family.




02_miniprojects11. KEEP IT SIMPLE / PICK A PLACE The road is long. Your video shouldn't be. Create a video for each major event on your trip. Same is true for a long vacation in a single place. I find that a clip that is 1~2 minutes long is enough to capture the mood and moment. Create multiple videos - you can always edit the epic film together with Premiere Pro later.

2. MUSIC & AUDIO If your car radio is going, you may want to mute it while you shoot, then add your favorite song in Premiere Clip. When you shoot your video, you'll capture some ambient sounds. Don't worry - you can adjust the volume of each clip (or just turn the audio off on each clip individually). Premiere Clip will also allow you to add a soundtrack to the entire movie. Sure, Premiere Clip has a library of music that you can use, but anything that you have on your phone can be used as an audio track for your video.

3. COLOR CORRECTION Another free mobile app from Adobe is Adobe Hue. Using the photos that are probably already on your iPhone, you can create a LUT (look up table) for creating an overall adjustment to your movie. It's simple to apply, but you may want to take some time setting up the right tone for the color modification. (A little goes a long way). It's a separate application - really easy to use, but packed with power.

4. EDIT / SYNC Watch your clip and edit it more. You can continue to edit in Premiere Pro later, but getting your video out to family and friends immediately is what Premiere Clip excels at.

5. SHARE 07_share_socialThe whole point of cutting it from the road is to share with friends and family who want to know what's going on right now... You can share it from Premiere Clip directly from your Creative Cloud account, Twitter and/or Facebook.
You can also save it to your phone's library, then send it out to any service you like.

NOTE: You can turn off the "Premiere Clip" bumper in the preferences. Personally, I like to leave it on. It indicates that this is the quick&dirty rough cut, and once I get it into Premiere Pro, I can do a better job on editorial, audio, color correction and graphics. 05_bumper_on
