Starting October 27th we are going to be using a new editing software for our weekend messages.  Below is the new workflow for editing the video and audio for our weekend services.

Use the video from the 11:30 service unless the pastor lets you know otherwise.  Noel likes to pick which sermon he uses and will circle his choice on the dry erase board at the top of the stairs in the A/V booth.

  1. Login to the video capture iMac.
  2. Check to make sure the BlackMagic SSD recorder is stopped and turned off.  (There are 4 green lights that always stay on, but the power button should not be lit)
  3. Pull the drive out of the left side of the recorder

  1. Carefully plug the drive into the SATA Dock to the right of the iMac.

  1. Open Premiere Pro on the iMac
  2. Open the 1130, 930, or 7 template file based on which service you need to edit

  1. In Premiere use the Select tool to click on the Capture.mov in the timeline.
  2. Move the mouse over to the beginning of the Capture.mov clip and the cursor will change to a Trim tool. (Looks like [ )
  3. Click and drag to the right to trim the clip to just before the beginning of the teaching.
  4. Use the Zoom tool to zoom in closer by clicking and dragging a box around the beginning of the clip.
  5. Click the blue marker at the top of the red line and drag to find the exact beginning of the teaching.
  6. Use the Select tool (trim tool) to trim the clip to the exact start point.
  7. Press the “\” key on the keyboard to zoom out.
  8. Click the middle of the Capture.mov clip and drag to the left until it bumps into the clip before it.  The program should cause the clip to snap into the correct location.  There will be little white arrows that appear where the clips line up.
  9. Repeat steps 2 – 7 except starting at the end of the Capture.mov clip and trimming to the left.
  10. Once you trimmed the Capture.mov clip to the correct start and end points, drag the “Video End Graphic” sequence from the Project window onto the “Video 1” track at the end of the Capture.mov clip.  There will be little white arrows that appear when the clip is lined up correctly.
  11. Click the blue marker at the top of the red line and drag to just before the end of the clips.  Press the space bar to start playing the end of the video.  The video should stop automatically at the end of the closing graphic.  Once this happens press the “O” (oh) key on the keyboard.
  12. Click the blue marker at the top of the red line and drag it all the way to the left.  Press the “I” (eye) key on the keyboard.
  13. Press the spacebar to start playback.  Watch to make sure the intro video and message video start and transition nicely.  If the 2 videos overlap, you’ll need to use the select tool to line them up again.
  14. Add any images (maps, photos) the pastor specifically refers to in their teaching.  Images are found under the message slides folder on the desktop, series name, and date.  You can add images by dragging them into the project window area in premiere, and then dragging them onto video track 2 in the timeline.  Click and drag to line images up with the correct spot in the teaching, and the length can be changed by using the trim tool.  Once the clip is in the correct location and the correct length, drag it onto video track 1.  Graphics can be resized in the program window at the top right of the screen.
  15. Now that the intro video, teaching, and end graphic are all in the correct place click File -> Export -> Media
  16. At the top right of the export settings window make sure the format is “H.264” and the preset is “RivChurch.com Message”

  3. Right click on “Message Template” and click duplicate.
  4. Change the format to “MP3” and the Preset to “RivChurch.com Audio Only.”  Click the Output file link and remove the “_1” from the end of the name.
  5. Press the play button at the top right to start the export process.  This should take about 45 minutes to 1 hour.

Upload and Archive

  1. FTP upload the mp4 and mp3 files from the desktop using Cyberduck to: rivwarehouse.com/resources/messages/[series]/.
  2. While the files are uploading, create the archive versions of the video using the Media Encoder application.
    • Right click on the top “Message Template” and click duplicate.
    • Click on the output file link and add the prefix “H.264_” to the filename.
    • Change the format to “H.264” and the Preset to “H.264 Message Archive.”
    • Right click on the top “Message Template” and click duplicate.
    • Click on the output file link and add the prefix “ProRes_” to the filename.
    • Change the format to “Quicktime” and the Preset to “ProRes Message Archive.”
    • Click the play button to start the archive video encodes.
  3. Once the archive versions are finished encoding, open the Video Archive external drive and drag the archive H.264 & ProRes files into the “Weekend Messages/[series]” folder.
  4. Once the upload is finished, quit Cyberduck, Media Encoder, and Premiere Pro.  Do NOT save changes to the template file.
