The best practice when you edit a clip in a host application such as Premiere Pro would be to make sure Premiere processes (renders) Neat Video first, before any other effect. First of all, that allows getting the best possible noise reduction. Second, processing certain effects before Neat Video or before other temporal effects can make Premiere Pro extremely slow or even cause it to crash. In particular, Lumetri Color and Warp Stabilizer are those guys which, if processed before temporal effects, can cause significant slowdowns and sometimes crash Premiere Pro altogether. So the order in which Premiere processes effects is important.
Generally, effects can be added to such components of a project as:
- A regular clip in a sequence in the timeline;
- A nested sequence;
- A clip inside a nested sequence;
- A master clip;
- An adjustment layer.
Each of these components can have its own set of applied effects and those are listed in the ’Effect Controls’ panel shown when you select the corresponding component in Premiere Pro. Keep reading to find out what is going to be rendered first.
