Author Pete Bauer

As he grew up along the Great Snowy Northern border of Minnesota, Pete Bauer’s innate passion for filmmaking and photography was evident very early. Although life took his professional pursuits in other directions, Pete never lost that passion. Since his retirement from the U.S. Air Force as a flight surgeon, his civilian practice of Aerospace Medicine in the Houston area has afforded him greater time and opportunities to re-ignite that old flame. Starting as a DV Info Net lurker in 2002, Pete quickly became a daily presence on the forum and has been one of the site’s stable of Wranglers and a DVi Contributing Editor since early 2004.

Adobe CS6 DVi Workshop: Using Adobe Premiere Pro with SpeedGrade and Audition

This Adobe CS6 tutorial by Pete Bauer of Contrail Media shows the round-trip process of taking a video clip through Adobe SpeedGrade that was deliberately shot at the wrong color temperature (i.e., a camera’s white balance was set to daylight instead of tungsten), because color temperature is something that Premiere Pro’s built in color correctors don’t explicitly have, but SpeedGrade does. Rounding out the workshop is a demo of a simple audio noise clean-up with Adobe Audition.
