5 Tips to Organize and Customize Premiere Pro

first_img2. Customize Your Source and Program MonitorsI’m quite comfortable with keyboard shortcuts, so I rarely use any of the default buttons located in the Source and Program Panels. If you’re like me, you can use the Button Editor at the bottom of the Source and Program Panels to customize what buttons you would like to see. Whittle it down to just a few select buttons, or just remove all of them for a minimalist look. 1. Custom BinsCreating and using custom bins will help keep your project neat and organized. This is beneficial when passing on your project to other editors, or returning to an old project. You won’t have to waste time searching for specific content. I usually create custom bins for Video, Audio, Graphics, and Sequences. Depending on the scope of the project, I’ll create a number of subfolders as well. 5. Use Project as a TemplateAfter you’ve created your bins, and customized your Source and Program monitors, your timeline, and your workspace, it’s useful to save your project and let it serve as a template. Open up your template project later, save out a copy, and you’re ready to go with custom bins and all of your preferences setup. You can even add branding assets and regularly used files into the template Premiere project to make your life easier.Looking for more Premiere Pro knowledge? You’re in luck.  What are your favorite Premiere Pro customizations? Share the in the comments below. 3. Save Track Height PresetWhile it may not seem so, you probably spend a lot of time resizing tracks in your timeline. All of that time can add up. I find it quite frustrating to constantly adjust my video and audio tracks each time I create a new sequence. Save some time by creating a Track Height preset in the Timeline Display Settings menu.center_img 4. Save Custom WorkspaceWhile Adobe Premiere Pro comes with a handful of useful workspace presets, it’s nice to customize your interface to your own personal preference. Whether you’re working on a documentary feature, editing a multi-cam event, or adding metadata to a library of footage, putting panels where you want them to be is a luxury. These five tips will help you organize and customize Adobe Premiere Pro to your own personal preference.Speed and efficiency make all the difference in your daily video editing workflow. Use these tips, tricks, and techniques to customize your Premiere Pro experience for maximum organization.last_img read more

Ezekiel Elliott Just Trashed Jim Harbaugh On The Paul Finebaum Show

first_imgEzekiel elliott talks about Jim Harbaugh on the Paul Finebaum show.Jim Harbaugh was only Michigan’s head coach for one of the program’s three rivalry contests against Ohio State during Ezekiel Elliott’s tenure, but he seems to have made quite an impression on the star running back. Friday, Elliott, who is going through the ESPN car wash today, trashed Harbaugh, telling Paul Finebaum that he’s “tired” of hearing about him. Elliott also called out Harbaugh for talking smack when he hasn’t won a rivalry game. Yikes.“I’m tired of hearing about Coach Harbaugh he needs to get in check with reality” – @EzekielElliott pic.twitter.com/QHElXCl7QV— Paul Finebaum (@finebaum) April 15, 2016more from @EzekielElliott: “you can’t talk smack about a rivalry when you haven’t won a game.

Camp Cloud numbers are small but tensions still simmering at Kinder Morgan

first_imgPipeline proponents, like federal Conservative MP Arnold Viersen, say Trans Mountain will bring jobs to First Nations communities. He represents 14 First Nations and three Metis settlements in his Peace River riding, “all of which have benefitted from the oil patch and forestry industry,” he said.“The industry coming in builds roads to the community, brings internet to the community, brings in power, water, provides construction jobs for roads, provides jobs for the actual servicing of the equipment that is up there, and so all of the communities in northern Alberta benefit immensely from having the oil patch and logging right in their backyards.”But Rose Deranger Desjarlais, who drove 19 hours from Fort McMurray to join the Camp Cloud group, said her home community of Fort Chipewyan has been destroyed by Alberta’s oilsands.“I am a victim of the tar sands,” she said.Up the road, a cedar watch-house offers a tiny glimpse into the fenced-in Kinder Morgan property. Despite the Texas-based company’s announcement that it would halt all non-essential spending, there’s still ongoing activity on the site. As recently as last week, Peter McCartney, of the Wilderness Committee, spotted trucks transporting pipes into Kinder Morgan’s New Westminster site.“It really put the fight into reality for me,” he said. “There’s this pipeline right here. It’s ready to be put into the ground in unceded territory where they do not have the consent of the First Nations.”Trucks are pictured carrying pipes travel into Kinder Morgan’s New Westminster site. Contributed/Peter McCartneyIn an emailed response, Kinder Morgan said some materials were ordered and in transit prior to the April 8 announcement that the company would halt all non-essential spending.“And some essential work that has already started may be continuing,” the statement reads.While the numbers have seemingly dwindled since Kinder Morgan’s announcement, Camp Cloud is physically growing.The site started as one trailer and expanded to a wooden enclosure filled with artwork and shelves of donated food. A handful of tents line the street, along with a small shelter recently built as a safe space for women and children.“If it’s downtime then we’ll fix the camp up and make sure that it’s ready for more people to come in … We’re always keeping track of what they’re doing at the same time,” said Bradley, eyeing another truck rolling up to the Kinder Morgan gate.Apart from volunteers, the odd passerby stops to ask questions, peeking over the “Stop Kinder Morgan” posters decorating the makeshift wooden frame.Camp Cloud started as one trailer but now includes several tents, shelves for donated food, artwork and a small wooden shelter for women and children. Lucy Scholey/APTNSome, like Burnaby resident Susan Cross, drop off food and firewood donations. Despite Trudeau’s claim that the Trans Mountain pipeline process has involved the “most extensive” consultation with First Nations communities ever, Cross said she takes issue with how Indigenous people have been “mistreated.”“When I’m watching the news, I’m just shaking my head constantly,” she said.Joe Ciccone, another Burnaby neighbour, recently walked past Camp Cloud with his dog and a couple of printed-off articles about Kinder Morgan for those occupying the encampment site.“These guys are the only hope for this bloody thing being stopped,” he [email protected]@aptn.ca (“I am a victim of the tar sands, says Rose Deranger Desjarlais who drove 19 hours from Fort McMurray to join the Camp Cloud.

Other volunteers come and go, lending a hand to cook, chop wood or feed the sacred fire that has been burning for about 140 days.“They call us eco-terrorists for protecting the land and they’re the ones that are destroying it,” said Lee, who travelled from Edmonton for the cause. He said he will stay as long as it takes to stop the pipeline.Johnny Lee, from Edmonton, chops wood at Camp Cloud near Kinder Morgan’s construction site in Burnaby, B.C. on April 18, 2018. Lucy Scholey/APTNIt’s less than a week since Trudeau said he would use financial and legislative means to salvage the $7.4-billion Trans Mountain project, despite opposition from the B.C. government, the cities of Burnaby and Vancouver and First Nations.Since then, Alberta has tabled legislation aimed at reducing oil flows to B.C., sparking fears of spiked gas prices. Saskatchewan is now threatening to do the same.But some say the ultimate showdown will be here at Kinder Morgan’s gate – and along the pipeline route to Edmonton.“We’re here to stop it. That’s the bottom line,” said Dean Bradley, of Kwakiutl First Nation, who has been staying at Camp Cloud for almost a month, bundling up in two sleeping bags during the cold nights.Dean Bradley has been camping outside Kinder Morgan’s gate for almost a month. He says the pipeline project will be a “coastal killer.” He’s pictured here at Camp Cloud April 17, 2018. Lucy Scholey/APTNKinder Morgan has said 43 First Nation communities have signed mutual benefit agreements with the company, but a number of others have not, including Coldwater, B.C. Many fear irreparable environmental damage from oil spills and extracting more fossil fuels from Alberta’s oil sands. The Liberal government has pledged $1.5 billion to protect the country’s oceans from the project’s resulting increase in oil tankers along the west coast.Watch Laurie Hamelin’s story on Camp Cloudlast_img read more

Barrick Gold to take US429million charge on PascuaLama project

first_imgTORONTO – Barrick Gold Corp. says it expects to take a US$429-million charge following an order by the Chilean government to close all surface facilities at its troubled Pascua-Lama project high in the Andes mountains.The gold miner says it is reclassifying Pascua-Lama’s 14 million ounces of proven and probable gold reserves, which are based on an open pit mine plan, as measured and indicated resources.Barrick is studying the potential of developing Pascua-Lama as an underground mining operation, rather than an open pit.It says the change would address a number of concerns by reducing the overall environmental impacts.The project, which straddles the Chile-Argentina border, has been criticized for threatening water supplies and glaciers.Barrick says it will provide a further update on the Pascua-Lama project at the company’s investor day on Feb. 22.Companies in this story: (TSX:ABX)last_img read more

ICBC launches telematics pilot for new drivers

first_imgVANCOUVER, B.C. – ICBC is launching into telematics research with a new pilot, this time inviting as many as 7,000 drivers with less than five years of experience to see how telematics technology can improve their driving and make B.C. roads safer.ICBC says its rates are under considerable pressure in part from a significant increase in crashes.According to the Provincial Insurance Company, new drivers are 5.6 times more at risk of getting into a crash and for that crash to be severe than those with 20 years of driving experience. “Starting September 2019, inexperienced drivers will be paying more to better reflect this risk as part of the recent changes to rate fairness. This pilot is an opportunity to assess if telematics can measurably improve driver behaviour and help offset that impact in the future by decreasing the demographic’s risk of being in a crash.”ICBC says results from the first telematics pilot earlier this year that focused on the technology’s usability found that over 40 percent of participants saw improvements in their driving by using the technology, and nearly three-quarters recommended that ICBC explore its use further, particularly for inexperienced drivers.In early 2019, ICBC will confirm a vendor that will provide the technology for the pilot through a Negotiated Request for Proposal process, and participant sign-up will begin in the spring. The pilot will launch in the summer with incentives for drivers while collecting driver feedback and driving behaviour data for one year.ICBC is looking for participants in the Novice Stage of the Graduated Licensing Program or with less than five years of experience as a fully licensed driver from across B.C.If you are interested in participating in this pilot program, you can visit icbc.com/driverpilotlast_img read more
