What are the differences between Premiere Pro CS6 and Premiere Pro CC?
We have been working on a series of videos showing the main features which have been added to Premiere Pro between CS6 - the last version you could buy - and the current version CC2016. The video will act as a useful reference for anyone who is thinking of taking the plunge and renting the Adobe software, or has upgraded and wants to know about all the changes between CS6 and the current version.
The videos are all free and are on our website and on our YouTube channel.
We have split them up into various sections and chapters to make it easy for you to find a particular topic in which you are interested. For more information on the different sections see the second tab in this news item.
For people with bad internet connections, or for those of you who just want an easy way to get the videos and store them on your own computer we will be putting a version on the website for download with a "front end" to help you find the videos which will be available for download or by post for £20+VAT . We will post here when this version is available.
Our set of tutorials covers the following topics:
EDITING IN Premiere Pro CC2015 - covering topics like editing 4K video, changes to the Premiere timeline and keyboard shortcuts and the audio channel and mixer changes.
Effects in Premiere Pro CC2015 - covering the new Lumetri colour panel, Master clip effects, masks and motion tracking, the morph cut and the new optical slow motion.
Other changes in Premiere Pro CC including sections about archiving projects using the project manager and relinking clips which have moved or been renamed
Multi-camera in Premiere Pro CC2015 - multi-camera has been improved and does more cameras.
The Adobe Media Encoder - the media Encoder is now a standalone program and has more output formats, filters and features like an automatic loudness corrector.
You can see all the sections on our website (( http://www.dvc.uk.com/acatalog/What-has-been-added-to-Premiere-Pro-since-CS6-.html) and on our YouTube channel ( https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCOTXy-8USAGQkj7FhLy1WNw).
We will also be producing a version of these tutorials all collated into one easy to navigate interface which you will be able to order and download from our website for £20+VAT. This will be added to the website shortly.
Logic editing keyboards are nice solid USB keyboards complete with a USB hub built-in, and we have been selling them for years. they have a huge range which includes editing, graphic an audio programs.
There is 10% off all these keyboards until the end of April 2016. You can see the full range and order the keyboards from here: http://www.dvc.uk.com/acatalog/Logic-Keyboards.html
EditorsKeys have released some new editing keyboards. They introduced backlit keyboards in August 2015 and now have introduced new wired and wireless keyboards based on the same design as their backlit keyboards. This means the new keyboards are more like a "regular" keyboard than the previous compact wired keyboards.
The Premiere and Avid keyboards are now available in both new formats as are other keyboards for programs like ProTools and Photoshop. There will be more wired keyboards available for programs like EDIUS and Vegas soon. There will not be wireless keyboards for every programs.
Wired keyboards are £49.99 inc VAT, wireless keyboards are £69.99 inc VAT. Both types of keyboard are currently available with £10 off their regular price.
You can see the full range of available keyboards here: http://www.dvc.uk.com/acatalog/Editors-Keys-Keyboard.html
The EDIUS jumpgrade is now shipping. The jumpgrade lets owners of older versions of EDIUS - any version from EDIUS 2 to EDIUS 6.5, and for owners of any version of EDIUS Neo (version 1 to 3.5), to upgrade to EDIUS Pro 8. This offer ends at the end of April 2016.
The jumpgrade is £259+VAT. You can also order our EDIUS 8 tutorial half price with the jumpgrade to help get you learning EDIUS quicker.
You can read more and order the jumpgrade here: http://www.dvc.uk.com/acatalog/EDIUS-Jumpgrade.html
We now have a tutorial which uses the EDIUS 8 interface available to order on the website. When EDIUS 8 was released Grass Valley changed the look of the interface of the program, although most of the features remained the same. This meant that everything in our popular EDIUS 7 tutorial was still relevant to EDIUS 8, but just looked slightly different. The EDIUS 7 tutorial obviously did not cover the new features introduced in EDIUS 8.
Our EDIUS 7 tutorial is approximately 19 hours long so it a large job to update fully. This new EDIUS 8 version has not updated the entire tutorial so many of the chapters remain with the EDIUS 7 interface. We have concentrated on covering new features of EDIUS 8 and remaking the introductory "complete edit in EDIUS" which is where we recommend everyone starts learning how to use EDIUS. This section has also been expanded so it covers a bit more than the EDIUS 7 version (you can see the EDIUS 7 version on our website - http://www.dvc.uk.com/acatalog/A-complete-edit-in-EDIUS-7.html ).
The new sections cover the GV browser, the project template feature, exporting to AAF and we have also added chapters regarding the differences between EDIUS Workgroup and Pro .
The sections on effects, audio, export and import all are done with EDIUS 7. It will take a few months to get them all redone and I will also be doing new videos on the new features coming in EDIUS 8 in the meantime..
If you order this version now you will be able to "upgrade" to the version which is completely remade in EDIUS 8 for about £20, when it is available. There is also a discounted version available for people who already own the EDIUS 7 tutorial. You can read more and order the tutorial here: http://www.dvc.uk.com/acatalog/Complete-EDIUS-8-training-course.html
Blackmagic UltraStudio Extreme 4K available
Blackmagic have released a new device which connects to your computer via Thunderbolt, and includes just about every connection you could want. It even has a socket for a microphone on the front. It handles just about every resolution of video you would need as well (whether the resolution is supported in your chosen editing program varies).
It also has some video codecs built-in. The UltraStudio Extreme 4K can encode to Apple ProRes and H.265 in hardware when capturing. You can only capture into ProRes on a MAC; H.265 is available on Mac or PC. This device is also available in a version which can capture into Avid DNxHR codec using on board hardware; this version is called Avid DNxIO.
This Blackmagic UltraStudio Extreme 4K is £1,999+VAT. The Avid DNxIO is £2,999+VAT, or just £100 more with a 1 year Avid support contract.

DaVinci Resolve 12.3.1 available
The latest update to Resolve has cured some of the problems we were having loading MP4 files into Resolve and added support for playback of H.265 footage. This co-incides with Blackmagic releasing a new video device, the UltraStudio Extreme 4K. On of the UltraStudio Extreme 4K's claims to fame is that it can capture and encode footage into H.265 video using hardware inside the device.
You can download the update here : https://www.blackmagicdesign.com/products/davinciresolve.
You can read more about Resolve and our first impressions about Resolve as an editing application here: http://www.dvc.uk.com/acatalog/Blackmagic-DaVinci-Resolve.html
10.6.2 Blackmagic drivers available
Blackmagic do release drivers very frequently and the latest versions are 10.6.2. The major changes recently have been support for the new Blackmagic UltraStudio Extreme and the Blackmagic Cintel film scanner. There have not been any major changes or fixes for regular Blackmagic cards. If you have a system which is working currently we would not bother to update on the simple basis that "if it ain't broke don't fix it". If you are having an issue then it worth trying the new drivers to see if they fix it.
