1. No need to go to activity monitor, type in terminal: ps aux|grep Premiere and you’ll get the same number
2. No need for dash symbol before PID number
3. I can share my script for all of you guys – you’d not need to do it manually

dsakax says:

I just started with Premiere after having a better computer and switching from Vegas, but since I know After Effects, with a 20 min tuto I was good to go, and just with these tips of yours I now know very advanced techniques to easily navigate the problem, thanks a lot. I’m coughing too haha, you sounded cool anyways.

Dumb Editing Questions says:

i am also trying editing tutorials but mines stupid…

Expat Norway says:

This and the transitions video inspired me to edit and post my first project. Thanks Peter!

Nylo de Meijer says:

This video is not about how to make your video look fancy, it’s for making you a better (and much faster) editor. And that’s amazing. So happy with these tips. Knew some, but did not knew more than I did know. I remember back in the days, when I wasn’t into making videos but did have to for our interviews… The first interview I edited was like from 10 PM till 7 AM straight on. While now, after I learned a lot more AND with these tips, I’m done in like 60 minutes for the editing part.


It pains me that you edit on a Mac… If you do this for a living get a good computer. You can get something WAY better than a Mac.


Love your work but hella confused as to why you’ve renamed Insert & Overwrite edits…

Aitor Arrazola says:

Very helpful!! Thanks bro!
