Jeff's Magical Workflow

Now that I've tried it out, I can outline some of Jeff's Magical Workflow in general:

1. Shoot frames to memory card (shoot high res native raw)

2. Open as library in Adobe Lightroom (this is the amazing key tip from Jeff-- so effortless)

3. Modify frames as a batch within Lightroom (snatch still frames from Lightroom and take to PS for further edits for books an posters) Non-destructive.

4. Export to Adobe Premiere Pro on HD per Jeff's settings (shown in screen shot)

5. Open new project with preset Arri>1080p>Arri1080p 23.976 (for proper resolution and frame rate).

6. Import frames from HD folder --but select first image only and then check "Image Sequence" in the dialog box (this will import all the images into a single clip.

7. Drag new clip from project window to timeline--and you are done! (edit further as you like there before exporting to Apple's Pro Res 422 Codec in H264 format at 1080p (or whatever size you like to post.)

He also recommended Crash Plan for Cloud backup ($60/year and excellent speed) and to link it to (my soon to be) External RAID enclosure for Firewire 800mb, 2-bay, 3.5" HDDs/s with (2) 3 TB drives as my local back up.

Let me know if you have any questions and I'll try to answer. And please report back how it works for you if you try it!
