Digital video is a medium that is now available to almost everyone. It can be captured on anything from a mobile phone to a high-definition camera, and published anywhere from YouTube to Blu-ray discs. In Premiere Elements 4 Essential Training, Adobe Certified Instructor Chad Perkins explores all the video editing capabilities of Premiere Elements 4. Chad starts with a real-world sample project, then covers techniques for importing and editing video; and adding effects, transitions, and animation. He concludes with a final project incorporating all the steps, including exporting and posting. Exercise files accompany the course.
In this brief movie I'm going to introduce you to this little Welcome Screen here,. When you very first launch Premiere Elements, this is what you see. A Welcome Screen is quickly becoming a standard in almost all of the Adobe's applications. First we have Recent Projects here. So if you were working on a project the last time you were in Premiere Elements, you'll probably see it in this list, so you could just click it here and launch the project from there. You don't have to remember where it was or whatever, just click it to open it up. If there's another project that's not quite so recent, that you'd like to open up, simply come up here to click the Open Project button to find the file and open up that project. And maybe you have video on your camera that you would like to capture, that you want to basically take it from your camera and put on your computer. You don't really want to work with it in Premiere Elements, maybe you just want to get it to your computer. So you don't even have to worry about any of that stuff, just click on Capture Video to go straight to the video capture area of Premiere Elements.
Now the thing that you'll probably do most here when you come into this Welcome Screen is to create a brand new project. This is not so easy, as just creating your file however. There is a little bit of trick to it. So I'm going to explain this a little bit more in the next segment and tell you about how to setup a brand new project. There's definitely a lot of options, a lot that could really mess you up and definitely some rules of thumb to follow. Also be aware that with some programs, if you click exit on the Welcome Screen, it exits the Welcome Screen and just takes you into the program, so you could fiddle around. Not Premiere Elements. If you were to click exit the Welcome Screen in Premiere Elements, it would close the entire program.
So just be aware that. So with the Welcome Screen out of the way, we're ready to now learn about setting up new projects in the next movie, let's go check it out.
