please take into consideration the following installation tips:
There is a Basic Version Adorage 12, which should be installed first. After doing so, check which editing software (NLE) you are using.
If you are using a 32bit editing software, install the 32bit-Plugin Service Package (included in the delivery).
Note:The selection of the Plugin does not depend on the Windows-version you are using.
2. If you are using a 64bit editing software (eg. Premiere CS5, Sony Vegas 64bit 9/10 Pro), install the 64bit Plugin Service Package (included in the delivery).
The current Adorage 12 or the Service Packages install new Plugins, i.e. the existing Adorage-Plugin will be refreshed.
Notes for the use of Adorage 12 in Pinnacle Studio:
Please install the basic version of Adorage 12 first, then the new volume 12 will be included into the list of the opened Adorage (directly in Studio). Immediately after doing so, you can use all the Adorage effects and transitions. In case that previously installed earlier Adorage volumes (1-11) are already unlocked, the new Volume 12 will be activated. There is no need of any further unlocking on the part of Pinnacle/Avid.
1. New installation of Adorage Volumes:
If you install your Adorage Volumes 1-12 newly we recommend to first uninstall Adorage completely. Then (re-)install your Volumes in order. Install the respective Service Package always at the end – either the 32bit- or the 64bit Service Package (or the two of them), depending on the editing software you are using.
2. The use of the 64bit Service Package:
The 64bit Service Package will be installed only if you are using a 64bit editing software (currently in Premiere CS5 and Vegas 9/10 Pro).
3. Additional installation of older Adorage Volumes:
If you install older Adorage Volumes in addition to previously installed Volumes you should always install the current Service Package at the end - either the 32bit- or the 64bit Service Package (or the two of them), depending on the editing software you are using.
Installation of the Adorage 10 trial version or an Adorage 10
Servicepack may affect existing installations of one or more
older full version effect packages. It may happen that an
installed full version will revert back into demo mode again.
This is due to a change in the licensing system this situation
can´t being avoided because we are merging 2 licensing systems
overlapping by two generations in one only installation. The
big advantage is, that you don´t need to register online
If this occurs, here are two ways to resolve the
a) Un-install the whole Adorage installation using the Windows
Start menu, Programs, proDAD/Deinstall Adorage-I. Then please
re-install the purchased full versions of Adorage Effects
packages as well as the earlier All-Plugins-Collection and also
the service pack from the Download/Service section at www.prodad.com
b) If you plan to purchase Adorage 10, this will automatically
convert your other Adorage packages into full versions again.
This means you don´t have to uninstall your existing Adorage
series and reinstall everything.
Just create an effect in the Edius timeline by applying the
icon to the timeline. Customize the effect settings.
Now drag the effect from the 'information'
palette with holded left mouse and drop it in the window
"effect" in the right side area.
In case you need to sort in this preset into a specific Edius
folder, please open the category before dragging the effects
Then you might localize your effect settings more comfortable
And yu also can create a proDAD favourite effects
library within EDIUS.
The arrow shows where the effects icon needs to be dropped. The
result will be a new effect template.
During the installation process only one Adorage plugin has
been installed - due to maximum overview within the effectlist
of your NLE.
This plugin finally shows the real effectlist.
How it works:
Just assign the Adorage-Plugin from the Transitions-list of
your NLE between 2 scenes in the timeline - in the same way how
you already know it from the NLE-own transitions.
In its options you may find a button such as
Klick it and the Adorage-Window appears and with it the
extensive effectlist - depending on the number of installed
Some NLEs also offers the Transition-Options with a double
click on the Plugin symbol which has bees assigned in the
The Adorage options (here the effectlist) can be accessed in
the same way, as the usual options or customizing possibilities
of effects which came with your NLE.
The assignment of the Adorage-Plugin as transition in the
timeline generally happens exactly in the same way as with
Premiere-own transitions. Once assigned as transition, press the "Custom..."
button in the effect properties of Premiere to find
the way to the huge Adorage effectlist with its thousands of
presettings and all the Adorage-internal customization
Drag the Adorage item from the transition's list
[A] to the timeline [B]. Drop
Adorage between the overlapping area of the both clips (as you
know from Premiere-internal transitions). After the effect is
assigned, press "Custom" [C] to
customize the effect and/or to get the effect list of the
installed Adorage effect packages.
Following [Images #2, #3] shows: how to
create overlapping clips
Overlapping clips requires trimmed clips. Trim left clip at the
right end and the right clip at its left start.
Move the right clip to the left to create the overlapping area.
