    Adobe Premiere Question

    Well, I have been experimenting with adobe Premiere 6.5 for a bit, and been trying to make some fighter highlights. When I goto add effects its not showing the effects I added. I'm wondering how to preview effects in this damn program? This is really pissing me off and i hope someone here has the answer.

    Haven't used it for a while...

    But my recollection is as follows:

    First, highlight the clip (or portion thereof) on the timeline that you want the effect to affect.

    Then, select the effect you want, drag-and-drop it onto the clip on the timeline.

    Then tweak the effect using the effect controls box. You can toggle preview on/off by clicking on the little box next to the name of the effect in the effects control box that has an "f" in it. With "f" - preview effect. Withoug the "f" - no preview.

    That oughta get you started. There are some pretty good online tutorials out there, as I recall.

    I really need to learn that software. So many highlight clips needed, so little time.

    Might have been that there was no real time preview of the effects in 6.5. In older versions of Premier, you often had to render effects to actually see them.

    Bingo! Knew there was something I was forgetting.

    I have Premiere 6.5, and it will do real-time preview, but you have to have chosen it right from the jump, when you begin the "project." Along with the various resolutions and ratios, you get to select preview . . . now go back and start over again!

    Adobe Premiere is good for making serious movies when you have a bad ass computer to run it.

    For highlights that need a background track and some words or basic visual effcets, Windows Movie Maker is actually quite good. For one thing, it's a lot faster than Premiere.

    Seems to me that at least one of the best-regarded HL makers (on Sherdog? Subfighter?) has said he uses WMM. Haven't played with it much myself.

    If you know your way around Premiere, WMM is a breeze. It feels very similar, but is just much more lightweight. I think Wamrage of Sherdog uses it.
