(bright piano music) - Hi, I'm Jeff Sengstack. Welcome to Premier Elements 8, Essential Training. In this course, I show you how to use Premiere Elements 8 to edit videos and share your finished projects with family, friends, and business associates. Whether you're making a video about your kid's soccer game, your family vacation, or your business, Premiere Elements 8 has all the tools you'll need to create a polished project. Here's some of the tools and topics I cover in this course. Getting video from your camcorder onto your PC's hard drive. Putting clips in slow-motion, reverse-motion or creating freeze-frames.
Applying and customizing video clip transitions like dissolves, wipes, and page curls. Adding and animating visual effects, like lightning, a lens flare, or an old film look. New to Premiere Elements 8 is the object tracker effect, that you can use to place an effect on something moving through a scene. Finally, I go over all the different ways you can share your project, from creating a DVD, complete with menus and animated buttons, to posting your videos online. I think you'll find that producing videos with Premiere Elements 8 can be creative, exciting, and rewarding.
So, let's get started with Premiere Elements 8, Essential Training.
