Are you new to video editing, and interested in learning how it works and getting off to a good start?
Do you currently make videos with iMovie, Windows Movie Maker, or post them right to YouTube with no editing at all?
Perhaps you’ve used Final Cut Pro video editing software for years, but want to expand your range?
Adobe Premiere is an incredibly powerful, professional-grade video editing software package. In this class, you’ll learn key basics of how the program works, then learn:
the basics of video editing: invisible cuts, b-roll, footage importation, timeline management, etc
when and how to use (or avoid!) visual effects & custom transitions
basic color correction (both automatic & manual)
audio cleanup & leveling, transcription, and addition of music & sound effects
how to export and digitally distribute your movie
how to get access to Premiere and other Adobe apps at a (very) reasonable cost
Note: You do NOT have to buy Adobe Premiere to take this class. You can download a FREE version for a one month free trial. (It’s best to wait and download it right before the class starts, so you can use it for the whole duration of the class.) (Then after the class ends, you can decide whether to buy the software or rent it inexpensively on a month to month basis from Adobe.)
For students with Final Cut Pro experience, we’ll discuss the differences (and advantages) you’ll experience with Premiere, and how to transition your projects between the two editing suites
