In Premiere Pro CS5 Essential Training, author Chad Perkins shows not only how to edit video with Premiere Pro, but he also explains how to use video to tell compelling stories. This course covers the Premiere Pro workflow from a high level, providing a background on how projects go from start to finish before diving into basic clip adjustments, such as color correcting scenes for more dramatic impact, applying transitions effectively, and slowing down and speeding up clip playback. The course includes creative techniques, such as making titles and removing a green screen background from a shot. Exercise files are included with the course.
Now there will probably be several times throughout the course of your career where you want to make different cuts to see how they play out and you might even want to do this just with different scenes, not only with your entire project. Just with little pieces of it. So what you can do is make sequences that contain just those scenes and then I'm going to open up the Sequences folder here. I am going to select the sequence that contains what I want an alternate version of. I am going to hold the Command key on the Mac, the Ctrl key on the PC, and I am going to drag this down. Now as long as I'm holding the Command key or the Ctrl key on the PC down, you'll get a little plus icon. If I let go of that than that plus icon goes away.
But if I have the plus icon I let go. What I've done is I've created a duplicate sequence and what I could do is go in and rename this. I'll call this 02 and I could double-click to open this. You see that multiple sequences open as tabs, so that we can go back-and-forth to, and I am going to click and drag and move this sequence up and basically reorder these. I am going to show you a more efficient way to do that in the next movie. For now we'll just do with the simple dragging way and I might click this end logo thing. Delete that.
I don't know if we need that. Bring this in a little bit closer perhaps. So you've made a few changes. You trim the end off the audio, who knows. I am just kind of fiddling around here. And now we have a one take here and a second take here, or in other words one full cut and a different full cut, just so we can kind of compare and contrast and see the way that they play out.
