Introduction to Premiere Pro

Participants without access to an Adobe Premiere Pro licence can download and install Adobe's free 30 day trial version for this workshop. Project files will be sent prior to the start of the workshop. Please download these files and have them ready for your workshop.

Ideal for anyone looking to start learning non-linear editing and running Adobe Premiere Pro on their home computer. In this hands-on workshop participants will learn step-by-step video editing from import to export. Gain the basic knowledge on how to create a project for HD or SD, capture footage, organize assets, apply basic editing techniques, add audio and video transition effects, create titles, colour correct and audio mix. This workshop also discusses techniques for exporting your finished edit to disc, tape, and a variety of digital formats.
