Meet Adobe Premiere Pro, and learn the skills necessary to professionally edit video. Abba Shapiro first introduces a "fast track" approach to Premiere that shows the entire import to output process in eight quick steps—ideal as an overview for new editors and a preview of the new features in CC that experienced users will want to see right off the bat. Then transition to the expanded workflow that begins with importing media, creating a basic rough edit, and then refining the cut with music and sound effects, transitions, visual effects, and titles. The course also includes information on exporting and archiving projects, as well as advice for becoming more efficient in Premiere with actions, keyboard shortcuts, and other workflow enhancing tricks.
>> Now that we have a few clips on our timeline, let's take a look at the edit between shots three and shot four. >> Amazing gluten free main dish, free main dish. >> Now, as you can see, she repeats herself from the closeup and in the wide shot. So I need to either trim off the end of the first clip, or trim off the beginning of the second clip. Now the audio doesn't match, but we'll explore refining audio in a later chapter. And also you may not be cutting a scene that was shot with three cameras but the techniques are pretty much the same of marking in points and out points and then doing a fine trim in your timeline.
The first thing I'm going to do is zoom in on my timeline and I can do that by pressing the plus key just so that I don't have to stare so closely at my monitor. I can actually finesse it without having to use my new action. I'm going to go ahead and play it one more time and make a decision where I want that edit to happen. >> Gluten-free main dish, free main dish. >> I like the fact that she's turning to the camera so I want to just trim off the end of shot number three, and I can simply go down and place my cursor over the end of that clip and you'll notice that the cursor changes and now I have a red roll edit tool and that allows me just to grab the end of the clip.
And drag it to the left, and I can shorten it. So I'm going to pull it toward the left. Right where she turns towards the camera, because cutting on action is always the best point to make an edit. And then I'm going to go over to the next edit and just see what her head's doing. And there it is, she's about to turn. And I think that's going to be perfect. I have a huge gap here, and I can simply grab the clip and slide it over to the left and let it snap closed. Now remember if your clips don't snap make sure you turn on snapping by hitting the s key.
Let's see how the action looks and not worry too much about the audio. >> Today, to learn. To make an amazing, gluten free. >> We're pretty close there. And I think, if the audio matched, it would be a perfect edit. Now, if it wasn't quite right, I can always undo that by hitting Cmd+Z, or on a Windows machine, Ctrl+Z. Or, if I was getting closer, I might want to zoom in a little bit more. Use the Up or Down arrow keys to get to my edit point and do the same steps to refine my edit. Now we'll learn a lot more refining techniques later on in this course, but for now this should give you a good idea of how to start fine-tuning your edit.
