Adobe Prelude: Ingesting and Converting DSLR Footage to ProRes

Speed up your tapeless workflow using Prelude to Ingest and Transcode at the same time.


Adobe has added a new tool to the Creative Cloud / Master Collection / Production Premium for video producers/editors called Prelude.  Use Prelude to ingest and transcode tapeless media from cameras recording to cards, as well as a basic video editing tool for producers (Premiere Pro can read timelines created in Adobe Prelude).

Transcoding your DSLR footage to ProRes in Adobe Prelude gives you a 10 bit, edit friendly codec that FCP, AVID, & Premiere can all handle.  This is a great file choice when you work with a variety of nonlinear apps (it’s a popular intermediate codec for FCP).  ProRes is also a solid option if you  plan on color correcting in Apple Color or Black Magic Resolve.  Trancoding changes the codec – footage off the cards is H.264 8bit and Pro Res is 10 bit.
