Chapter 5. Creating a Program > Creating a Leader

Creating a Leader

In addition to accepting a wide variety of source files, Premiere provides several useful clips of its own. Some of these clips are useful for creating a standard leader, which typically appears at the beginning of a master edited tape (and, therefore, at the beginning of the timeline). Premiere not only generates standard color bars and a reference audio tone, but also a custom countdown.

The bars and tone are used by video technicians to faithfully reproduce your program's video and audio levels. The visible countdown originally helped a film projectionist know when the program was about to start. It can serve a similar purpose for videotape operators. The standard countdown starts at 8 and ends at 2 (where there is usually a beep, or 2 pop, to test the sound).
