In Premiere Pro CS4 Getting Started, Paul Trani walks through a non-linear editing project from beginning to end, introducing both new and established features along the way. He demonstrates how to capture and organize video footage from tapes or files, create and add to a sequence, and perform basic editing and trimming tasks. Paul also discusses techniques for color correction, transitions, titles, and other effects. He prepares the finished piece for export to both Encore DVD and web-optimized video formats. Example files accompany the course.
