Join Maxim Jago for an in-depth discussion in this video Establishing the starting point, part of EPK Editing: 2 Creative Editing and Fine-Tuning.
…So, here we are.…We're at the point we left off at the end of the first course in the series.…And, we're inside PremierePro, ready to begin the more delicate work of…defining the content, and I suppose moving forward to setting up our effects.…We're going to go through trimming, and so on.…In this project, we've got an assembly edit on the time line.…And, this assembly edit has very little set up in terms of timing.…But, the structure is pretty much there.…
You'll notice that this is significantly longer than the finished edit will be,…we're nearly at 13 minutes.…And, that's perfectly normal for an assembly edit.…We've got a number of bins.…We've got music video content.…We've got the interview content.…And, everything's already ingested, and we're ready to get to work.…Before you start going through the videos in this course,…I encourage you to just take a moment to familiarize yourself with the content.…And, one easy way to do that is to just go into the contents of a bin.…

In the previous installment of EPK Editing Workflows, Maxim Jago showed you how to ingest media and build a basic assembly edit from your favorite shots. Here you'll take that rough cut and fine-tune it using a number of industry-standard trimming techniques that work in just about every nonlinear editing system. You'll learn how to take your edited sequence from an assembly to a precise cut, with temporary effects and transitions that will help you nail down the final visual look of your video.
