Join Paul Trani for an in-depth discussion in this video Getting started, part of Premiere Pro CS4 Getting Started.
What is Adobe Premiere Pro CS4? Well, it is a professional video editor, allowing you to create any movie you want and from there, you can go ahead and output that movie to any format you would like as well. You can also take files created from other Adobe programs and then use them in your Premiere Pro project, editing those files together with footage, adding effects and transitions and even add titles. And from there, you can output your movie to TV, you can put it on a DVD, you can put it on your mobile phone or even upload it to a video service like YouTube.
To get oriented, let's talk about what we will be doing. We will be creating this surf movie. So, you can see that graphics have actually been imported, there is a background video that has been tinted with color as well as distorted. These clips have actually been color-corrected as well, because this was actually filmed on a cloudy day and the water wasn't quite that blue. These transitions between each clip, there is music in the background and lastly you can easily add text, all from within Premiere Pro. And sure enough, once it's done, I can output it to pretty much any platform I want to and know that if you don't have any of the exercise files that make up this movie, you can easily use your own clips to parallel what I am doing.
