Edit & add effects faster

Work smarter and faster in applications like Adobe® Premier® Pro and Adobe® After Effects® to navigate footage, to select, trim, and assemble the footage you want to edit, and to create a seamless frame-by-frame flow. With a Wacom pen, you can quickly rearrange and sequence clips, making small or large improvements to the color quality and transition key frames.

Stay focused with precision and control at your fingertips

With a pressure-sensitive pen you have more control and accuracy when it comes to frame-by-frame editing or rotoscoping and matte painting. After importing your project into After Effects, you can use tools such as the clone stamp, healing brush, 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. Whether you're making color corrections across an entire sequence or looking to create spline-based shapes for even greater control when isolating elements, the pressure-sensitive pen helps you focus in on an object with precision and control.

Speed your workflow, without sacrificing quality

Creating work with the right feel and flow starts when you import hundreds of clips, cut segments, re-sequence clips, make color corrections, and add mask transitions, along with adding outside motion graphic elements. With a Wacom pen tablet, you can speed up the process, using Wacom productivity tools such as the Touch Ring and ExpressKeys™ to speed your workflow. Use the Touch Ring as a jog/shuttle controller, and access multi-keystroke commands and menu items with a single press of an ExpressKey. Now you can spend less time navigating the application and more time doing what you do best: creating stories.

Customer feedback: top five reasons to edit with a Wacom pen

1) The ergonomics of the pen: The use of the Wacom pen provides a more natural way to work. Video editors tell us it reduces their risk of repetitive stress injuries, or RSIs.

2) Speed: Resounding comments are that video editors work faster and with more fluidity.

3) Precision in edits: In Premiere Pro particularly, the ability to easily pull frames into After Effects® and make corrections using the pressure-sensitive features in Adobe’s® Brush Engine are big wins with editors.

4) Productivity gains: Surprising to many users at first, the ExpressKeys on Intuos Pro pen tablets and Cintiq displays deliver unexpected productivity gains. Programming application-specific keyboard shortcuts into ExpressKeys puts functions a single-click away.

5) Fun matters: Whether video editing is your full-time job or a passionate hobby, it makes a difference how much you enjoy the process. Ask around, make the time commitment to learn a way of working, and you'll enjoy the process a whole lot more.
