If you're one of the people who uses a GoPro on the end of a pole to shoot yourself snowboarding, cropping is what happens when you chop your head off, or cut the board off the bottom of the shot.
Maybe that doesn't matter to you, but as a snowboarding photographer I'm always left wondering if the riding's really as bad as the upper body suggests, or if the rider really does look better without a head.

It isn't. That's right, it's just not. So Photoshop is. After Effects is. Perhaps the other 20 applications in the "Master Collection" are. Premiere Pro isn't.
So if you're using a calibrated display, then the chances are that you're in a worse position that those using something vaguely close to sRGB. That's because your display, like mine, is spot-on with colour managed applications, but those applications which don't colour manage don't have the benefit of your nice profile, so they're likely to be further away from reasonable than a dumb old uncalibrated box. Great.
Well it's not quite as bad as it may seem, once you know there's a problem. The good news is that After Effects is colour managed, although you do have to switch it on. To do that, set the project's colour space to something other than "none", weird but that's it. So that's why people muck about with a second tool, After Effects, for colour management; because you're working pretty much blind if you try it in Premiere Pro.
Maybe they'll fix that in the next version. Meanwhile, anyone know how to get After Effects to import my Premiere Pro project without missing bits out?

GoPro Video cameras are a lot easier to use than my DSLR, but there are a few bits and pieces relating to post processing which aren't covered by the manual or the user groups. Here's a quick summary of how I got this working. I'm using Adobe Premier Pro CS4; a few things will be different if you're on CS3 or 5.

I don't know anything about video, but my camera takes it and I need to figure out how to produce the stuff. I'm sure this information's out there somewhere, but I've been unable to find it, so here's what I know.
