Can't figure out how to do this in Premiere, as I can in Avid (with its set of 'current', 'previous' and' next' shot windows). What's the best way to view one corrected shot while you match grade another shot to it?

Layer...put corrected shots on upper layer...then crop one side. Or, does PPRo do that? My version doesn't...MASK one side...

Thanks, Shane. I was hoping for a less work intensive means of simple shot comparison - like what exists in Avid or Resolve.

You can use a Reference Monitor or you can use the side by side features in Speedgrade.

Thanks, Craig. I can use my reference monitor, but without a wipe or means of quickly toggling back to a reference frame, I don't know how to do proper match grading within Premiere. I'm primarily an editor, so don't really want to dive into Speedgrade to do stuff like this. Should I put in a feature request to Adobe for this?

That's how I do it: I put the clip I want to correct in an upper layer over the clip corrected I want to match, copy and paste the color correction effect applied to it, then disabling or enabling the view of the upper track y can compare both clips and make the adjustments required.

Thanks, Gabriel. I think Adobe should add a faster method. I'll put in a feature request.

Scott...

you can load your current sequence into both your source and record view.

that way you can scrub each and sample each as needed.

you can even gang the monitors together even when they are offset in time. this might get you close..

you can even gang reference monitor to record...

if you set keyboard shortcuts to toggle ganging this might speed it up a bit as well.

you will also want to move your effects controls tab in your windowing layout so that it's always visible while you can see both the source and record viewers at all times.


another useful technique is to have another empty sequence open...usually stacked above or below in the timeline panel.

as you come up with good grades...copy them into the empty timeline...

that way you can have a palette of looks and if you expand the track height you have the thumbnails to reference. this can be handy to pick a base grade a springboard to apply to other shots in the sequence you are working on.

hth some....
