This course introduces Adobe Premiere Pro CS6, using a project-based approach that introduces video editors to all the skills necessary to cut their own program. Using a short commercial project as an example, author Abba Shapiro walks viewers through a complete and logical workflow that begins with importing media, creating a basic rough edit, and then refining the cut with music and sound effects, transitions, visual effects, and titles. The course also includes troubleshooting advice, such as reconnecting offline media and using the History panel to undo multiple actions.

Topics include:
  • Customizing the window layout and the interface
  • Importing card-based media
  • Capturing media from tape
  • Marking and selecting the best takes from clips
  • Editing clips into the Timeline
  • Performing insert and overwrite edits
  • Performing more advanced editing tasks, such as 3-point editing, replace edits, and trimming using ripple and roll edits
  • Mixing audio
  • Editing more efficiently using markers
  • Working with stills and graphics
  • Creating speed changes on clips
  • Adding transitions and effects
  • Creating titles, credit rolls, and lower thirds
  • Demonstrating multicamera editing techniques
  • Stabilizing shaky footage
  • Exporting your final project to the web, mobile devices, and tape

Hi! I am Abba Shapiro, and I'd like to welcome you to Adobe Premiere Pro CS6 Essential Training. In this course I'll take you through the entire process, creating a complete video program using Adobe's most advanced video editing software, Premiere Pro CS6. I'll not only show you editing basics, but you'll see how to use Premiere's completely redefined trimming tools to make precise cuts. You'll also see how to use the audio mixing tool to create a perfectly balanced sound track.

I'll show you some of the best practices when importing pictures, graphics and Photoshop files into Premiere Pro, and then I'll show you how to adjust and animate photographs to bring your program to life. We'll be covering all these basics plus plenty of other advanced techniques such as creating the perfect chroma key using the Ultra Keyer and smoothing out shaky footage with Premiere's brand-new Warp Stabilizer. Now let's get started with Adobe Premiere Pro CS6.
