Hi, I'm Ashley Kennedy. Welcome to the Adobe Premiere Pro, Creative Cloud Essential Training. Premiere Pro is just one of the very powerful and versatile applications within the Adobe Creative Suite. And now, with the Creative Cloud model, you can look forward to an even more integrative and intuitive experience as you work between Premiere Pro and its sister programs. This course starts with a get up and running chapter which takes you through a quick start to finish work flow to finish a short piece.

Then we spend the rest of the course diving deeply into each technique. I'll show you how to import and organize your media. I'll show you many basic and intermediate editing techniques as we construct a documentary style promo piece from start to finish. We'll take a look at Premiere Pro's integrated audio editing tools as we focus on our project's soundtrack. We'll explore how to integrate all types of effects to fix, enhance, stylize, and retime your footage.

We'll look at how to color correct your sequence clips and your master clips. You'll learn how multicam editing can be a tremendous time saver. And I'll show you how to export your project in various formats so you can share your work with the world. So, let's have fun as we begin to take a look at the many exciting possibilities inside Adobe Premiere Pro Creative Cloud.

Q: This course was updated on 10/10/2014. What changed?
A: We added tutorials to cover the most recent changes to Premiere Pro CC. The "What's new" movies provide an overview of the UI and effects changes, and the four movies indicated by the "(CC 2014.1)" tag give you a deeper dive into these features.  Additionally, the "Using the Exercise Files" and "What version of Premiere Pro CC does this course cover?" movies will help you become fully acquainted with how this course is structured.
Q: How do I open the exercise files in Premiere Pro? I can't open any of the files in the Hot Glass or Creative Letterpress folders.
A: You have to open the project file (the .prproj). You will see the rest of the exercise file structure when you open the project in Premiere Pro. (The only folders you see at the operating system level—through the Finder or Windows Explorer—are the media folders, which the project file links to.)
You can double-click on the Hot Glass project file to load the project in Premiere Pro. Once that project opens, you will find the rest of the exercise files.

If you need further assistance, please watch the "Using the Exercise Files" movie.
Q: After loading a project from the exercise files for this course, the media appears "offline" and cannot be used. How do I fix this?
A: This issue occurs because the project was not created in your copy of Premiere Pro, so your copy does not know where to look for the asset files. To fix this, please see the video "Relinking offline media."
Q: Premiere Pro keeps saying, "Project contains a sequence that could not be opened. No sequence preview preset or codec could be associated with this sequence type." What do I do?
A:  Please read this post, which addresses this issue, and then try the suggestion in the order provided:
