Why Adobe Premiere Pro and Wacom Displays are the Perfect Video Editing Pair

April 21, 2020

Video editing requires patience, creativity and some more patience. During the editing process, it is the editor’s ultimate goal to enter that relaxed, creative place called “flow.” Sandwiched between those states of flow, issues with a lack of precision or  non-ergonomic workspaces can create frustration or discomfort. Wacom display devices can help.

Two Key Pieces of Tech Everyone Working in Adobe Premiere Pro Needs

Adobe video applications like Premiere Pro and After Effects provide incredible creative scope for editors and artists. To maximize the state of flow users can turn to Wacom display products, such as the Cintiq Pro 24, for comfort, precision and the space they need for timeline-based creative work. When paired with a Wacom Ergo Stand or a Wacom Flex Arm, the Cintiq Pro 24 allows editors and artists to tilt and angle their display to suit their working style and their ergonomic needs. The 24-inch display offers far more real estate for the Premiere Pro timeline. The Pro Pen 2, which never needs charging, is designed for comfort and the pen tip offers precision that a mouse can’t touch.

Here are a few more ways a Wacom Cintiq Pro 24 can speed up your workflow:

  • Intuitively navigate footage to select, trim, and assemble the footage you want to edit, create a seamless frame-by-frame flow and quickly rearrange and sequence clips, making small or large improvements to the color quality and transition key frames.
  • In Adobe After Effects, use tools such as the clone stamp, layer masks, and adjustment layers to selectively modify color temperature, exposure, tone, and contrast, depending on the amount of pressure you apply with the Wacom pen.
  • With Wacom productivity tools such as the ExpressKey Remote, you can customize your workflow: use the Touch Ring as a jog/shuttle controller, and access multi-keystroke commands thanks to the 17 customizable buttons.

As more studios shift to virtualized environments, editors must be able to maintain the efficiency they have in local environments.
