How to Use Adobe "Clip Notes" in Premiere and After Effects to Make it Easy to Collaborate with Your Video Clients No Matter Where in the World They Are

In this Adobe Premiere Pro tutorial, Jason Levine provides an in depth look at how you can quickly and efficiently collaborate with clients and team members, no matter where they are in the world, by using the Clip Notes features in Adobe Premiere Pro and in Adobe AfterEffects.

This is great. By using pdf format, email and either embedding or linking to a streaming video, you can easily share your video as well as your timeline. When your team members respond, you can import their comments and suggestions directly into the timeline so that when you go to clean it up, you can easily find the exact spot in the production they are referring to. Very, very cool.


Getting fast, to-the-point feedback from clients is a crucial part of successful production, but it can also be a time-consuming chore. Adobe Clip Notes streamlines the process with an elegant solution based on two easy, accessible technologies: e-mail and Adobe PDF.

Export a video sequence as an Adobe PDF file with embedded or streamed video, and then e-mail the file to your reviewer. The reviewer plays the video with Adobe® Reader® and enters timecode-specific remarks into the comment box. After the reviewer e-mails back the comments and you open the file in Adobe Premiere® Pro CS4 software, the comments appear as clip markers at the appropriate timecode locations in the timeline.

Straightforward and efficient, Adobe Clip Notes facilitates collaboration, expedites the review and approval process, and takes the pain out of keeping everyone in the loop.
