While this class is both designed for beginner and experienced users, I would like to recommend that you have a basic understanding of some of the tools we're going to cover. We're going to take a look at Adobe Premiere Pro, and Adobe After Effects. Now, don't worry, if you haven't used both of these tools before, that's okay. As long as you have a foundational understanding of one of them, you'll be able to get by. I will walk you through some of the essential skills needed to get the footage into the system and start to work with it, but if you've never used Adobe After Effects or you've never used Adobe Premier Pro, this would be a great time to head over and check out one of the essential training courses here on lynda.com.
We will also explore Photoshop, and I've got a lot more training available up here on Adobe Photoshop that you're welcome to check out. But as long as you have a good solid foundation, you'll be okay to get started with any of these Adobe tools. I'll try to keep it pretty simple, but we will start to get pretty deep, so worried feel worried if you have to tap out at some point.
