In this workshop filmmaker and author Maxim Jago presents a quick guide for editors who want to make the transition from Avid Media Composer or Apple Final Cut Pro to Adobe Premiere Pro, or even to move back and forth between applications. Premiere Pro CS6 supports roundtrip editing and offers great new features like dynamic trimming, the Warp Stabilizer, and Rolling Shutter Repair. Maxim covers these features and shows how to harness the power of the entire Adobe Creative Suite to help you with everything from writing scripts and creating titles to capturing live video and tracking metadata.
(music playing) Hello, and welcome to this Premiere Pro CS6 for Avid and FCP Editors course. I'm Maxim Jago. I've been a happy Avid certified instructor for many years, and I'm also a Premiere Pro master trainer and Edius master trainer. Much of my work as a trainer involves supporting editors as they make the transition to a new editing system. I'm a film maker too, so I truly understand the stress, pain and joy of discovering a new creative technology. This course is for editors who already know the difference between a keyframe and a chromo-key.
If you know the difference between JKL playback and generated time code, if you know how to edit, create titles, import and export using Avid Media Composer or Final Cut Pro. Then this course is for you. I'm going to presume you want to start editing as quickly as possible. So I'll only going to explain concepts where it's important to understand a feature, or where Adobe Premiere Pro takes a different approach from Avid or FCP, to a particular task. Core editing techniques are almost identical in both systems, and by the end of this course you should be able to import media files, produce sequences with effects, color correction and graphics, and output your finished work to files or to tape.
Premiere Pro has come of age and is used by major media organizations around the world.
