Editing with Adobe Premiere Pro CS5 if you’re a Final Cut Pro user How to enable GPU acceleration* for real-time effects: 1. Choose Project > Settings > General. 2. In the Video Rendering section, choose CUDA Accelerated Renderer from the Renderer menu. With GPU-accelerated effects enabled, a yellow render bar appears when effects are applied to clips in a sequence with matching footage settings. Note: This function is available only when a supported GPU-accelerated graphics card is installed. If you’re working on a computer or laptop editing challenging footage such as high resolution 4K RED files or sequences with a large number of effects, the Mercury Playback Engine gives you the ability to adjust the playback resolution of your video in the Source Monitor or Program Monitor. Separate Playback and Pause resolutions give you more control over monitoring. With high- resolution footage, you can set playback resolution to ½ for smooth viewing. Setting Pause resolution to Full allows you to quickly check the quality of focus or edge details when playback is paused—useful for when you don’t have the luxury of an on-set HD monitor. When working with higher resolutions, such as RED 4K footage, you can set playback resolution to ½, ¼, ⅛, or 1/16 for smooth viewing. To adjust the Playback and Pause resolution in the Source Monitor or Program Monitor 1. Click the panel menu icon in the upper right corner of either the Source Monitor or Program Monitor panel in Adobe Premiere Pro. 2. In the pull-down menu, choose Playback Resolution. 3. Choose ½ resolution. 4. Repeat step 1, and then set Paused Resolu- tion to Full. 5. Play and then pause the sequence. When playback is paused, you can easily check the quality of focus and examine edge details by dragging the scroll bars in the Program Monitor to the view areas of interest. Keying with Ultra Ultra is a powerful high-performance keyer in Adobe Premiere Pro CS5. It lets you achieve fast, accurate keying on even the most challenging DV and HD footage—footage shot under real-world conditions typically found in production that include uneven lighting, wrinkled backgrounds, and frizzy hair. Ultra preserves shadows and can achieve complex keys on smoke, liquids, and transparent objects. The GPU-accelerated Mercury Playback Engine dramatically increases rendering speeds, usually resulting in real-time HD keying. To use the Ultra Keyer: 1. Use the eyedropper control to choose the green or blue background color. Find an area of the background that best represents the overall background color and not, for example, the middle of a lighting hot spot or shadow. 2. For getting the best possible key, you may want to use the different Output viewing modes for the Ultra keyer. In particular, the Alpha Channel output is useful for detecting unwanted transparency. 3. There are 3 presets available - Default, Relaxed, and Aggressive. Try these first before playing with the sliders - many times one of these presets are enough to pull a clean key.
