A quick, easy-to-use guide for editors who want to make the transition from Avid Media Composer or Final Cut Pro to Adobe Premiere Pro, or even to move back and forth between applications.
- Hello and welcome to this Premiere Pro CS6 for Avid and FCP Editors course. I'm Maxim Jago, I've been a happy, Avid-Certified instructor for many years. And I'm also a Premiere Pro Master Trainer and an Edius Master Trainer. Much of my work as a trainer, involves supporting editors as they make the transition to a new editing system. I'm a filmmaker too, so I truly understand the stress, pain and joy of discovering a new creative technology.
This course is for editors who already know the difference between a keyframe and a Chroma key. If you know the difference between JKL playback and generated time code. If you know how to edit, create titles, import and export using Avid Media Composer or Final Cut Pro, then this course is for you. I'm going to presume you want to start editing as quickly as possible. So, I'll only explain concepts where it's important to understand a feature. Or, where, Adobe Premiere Pro takes a different approach from Avid or FCP to a particular task.
Core editing techniques are almost identical in both systems. By the end of this course, you should be able to import media files, produce sequences, with effects, color correction and graphics. And output your finished work to files or to tape. Premiere Pro has come of age and is used by major media organizations around the world.
