SpeedGrade workspace

The Adobe SpeedGrade workspace provides a more familiar screen layout for Adobe Premiere Pro users. There is a familiar placement of user interface elements such as the media browser, a redesigned autofit monitor, Look Manager, and integrated grading and mask panes.

The use interface contains a main toolbar and tabs on the upper right of the screen. The tabs are in the sequence of the SpeedGrade workflow: locating your media, grading, rendering, and reviewing the final output.
