(electronic music) - Hi, my name is Antony Bolante. And welcome to Premiere Pro CS4 Essential Training. I'm a video producer and writer, and I'll be your guide in this video training series. In this title I'll use sample footage to demonstrate the various editing techniques using Premiere Pro CS4. It will allow you to create a solid edited sequence from start to finish. The goal isn't to have you replicate a particular edited piece step by step, but I will use the footage with certain editing goals in mind. This way I'll demonstrate various techniques that help achieve those goals.

And overcome the challenges that naturally arise in a project. In general I'll follow the typical workflow of any editing project. We'll start by creating a project in Premiere Pro. And specifying the settings most appropriate to the editing goals. Then we'll gather the assets need to complete the project and organize them as you see here. Then we'll view footage and decide how to use it. We'll put it together into a rough sequence. Then we'll learn various ways to tighten and refine the edit. From there we'll add professional touches like titles, transitions and effects. Then we'll do some basic audio mixing.

When the sequence is complete, we'll export it into the format of your choice. Throughout the process I'll stick with the key techniques to get the job done. So whether you've downloaded the sample footage and follow along or apply what you learn to your own project. You'll have the essential training to take a project from start to finish in Premiere Pro CS4.
