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.
Well, folks to paraphrase the 1990's boy band Boys II Men, we've just about to come to the end of the road. But before we close out this training series entirely we have one last final project. We're going to basically take everything that we've learned in this training series and connect it into a project. We're going to have some super sweet footage. This is going to be a really good time. My little kid here loves the Wii game Guitar Hero and you could find it for PlayStation or Xbox or whatever but he absolutely loves this game and he's really, really amazingly good at it. So what I've done is I've taken a lot of footage of him playing Guitar Hero, images of his face and him rocking out and his fingers on the neck and all sorts of stuff.
What we're going to do is we're going to edit this together with some external audio. So none of the original video clips have audio because all the songs from Guitar Hero are copyrighted and so we can't include those with the training series unfortunately. But what we're going to do is we're going to add some other audio and we're going to make it look like my son is playing this stuff on guitar. You could see here, here's one of the clips that we're going to be using here, taken from behind the neck and what we're going to do is we're going to add some cool colorized stylings to this to really give some depth in character, to this entire video presentation.
We're going to change the titles. We're going to apply all sorts of crazy effects. We're going to add transitions and Movie Themes and we're going to do a bunch of really cool things with this video. So we're going to make a super sweet video project to incorporate all that we've done from scratch and then once we're done we're actually going to upload this video project to YouTube. Earlier on, in the training series we talked about how to send something to YouTube. We really didn't go through the entire process of how to save something and upload it, get it on YouTube.
So there's definitely some fun stuff left in this final project, so let's get to it.
