In spring of 2018, Adobe updated Adobe Premiere Pro CC 2018. Like with all updates to software, there is added functionality to this new version of Premiere Pro. What are some user experience changes? In this video, instructor Richard Harrington walks you through how to use the new learn panel in Premiere Pro.
- Learning Premiere Pro has gotten a bit easier. Now, of course, you could just keep watching this course, but there's actually some tutorials that are built in to Premiere Pro. If you're launching it for the first time and you don't have any projects, it's going to take you to that learn panel, but you can get to this in many different ways. You'll notice across the top, a learning workspace. Clicking on this is going to bring you a dedicated learn panel and this will show you several different types of tutorials. More content will get loaded in here periodically, but you'll see here that these are five tutorials that they currently have loaded.
I expect more will become available as this feature matures. You can also undoc this panel or easily set it to preview, but clicking on one of these is going to take you to a specific project. You'll notice here, for example, it's actually created a new sequence. And it gives you some idea on how to work forward. At the bottom, here, it tracks your progress. I can click next and you see that little built in movies help you understand what's happening.
It's going to walk you through how to do different steps. You can continue to work through those different steps as needed. And then when ready, start your own project. From the popup list here, this will take you back to all tutorials and that works quite nicely. You'll also notice if you launch Premiere Pro and don't first launch a project, besides being able to see recent projects or open or navigate, there's a learn area. This is not currently populated yet because I'm working with a pre-release version of the software, but you will find additional content available here that will make it easy for you to access additional education about the project.
And, under the help menu, you'll also notice that we have Adobe Premiere Pro in app tutorials and Adobe Premiere Pro online tutorials. The online tutorials will take you to a specific webpage. This will let you see a wide variety of tutorials sorted by beginner versus experienced editors. If you choose the in app tutorials, you see it's another way to load that learning workspace, which brings up the learn panel.
I expect that you'll see additional content delivered here as this feature continues to grow, but it's one more way to get familiar or to help a new user in your office discover some things about Premiere Pro.
