There is an endless amount of possibilities for you to use while creating your video in Premiere Pro. You will create professional level work and enhance your editing skills while using this software. This program has proven that you can create high level film products, but also create simple tutorials or promotionals as well. I personally have used Premiere Pro for only a short amount of time, and I can say that it is a tool I wished I had learned earlier.
What real people are saying about the Software:
Madison McDouglad, a Senior at Clemson University majoring in English Writing and Publication, states “the freedom of customization makes it a program that is worth the time and money”
Madison Gilstrap, a Sophomore at Clemson University, states “a really versatile tool that can help edit…and create different effects and artwork”
Key Software Functions
What are some key or unique selling points?
There are several unique features of Premiere Pro. One of them is the softwares ability to create folders, markers and labels to organize clips. These folders, markers and labels allow you to easily identify which clips go in which order. Once you place your clips on the tracks, you have the ability to lock various tracks. This also helps you edit the audio of the video by locking video clips and editing audio clips.
Along with this ability, the program also has some key tools that are easily accessible by their location in the tool box closest to the tracks where all your edits will take place. These essential tools are the ones that you should first learn how to use in order to feel comfortable working in the program. They include tools like the razor tool, text tool and the select tool. The editing panel also contains some of the hundreds of editing options that Premiere Pro offers. These tools will look scary at first; however, if you continue to learn how to navigate the program, you will become more comfortable.
The audio and video that you choose for your video can be edited by adding graphics, transitions, titles and various effects to the audio. If you take advantage of the potential opportunities that Premiere Pro offers, you have an unlimited amount of options to choose from. Some of these creative potentials include beveling the edge of the video, changing the coloring of the video or images through the color panel or using transitions such as wipe, peel or iris to edit the video. These edits are specific to editing video, while audio is edited separately in a different track.
What are advantages and what can it do well?
There are so many pros to this software, but I’ll just summarize a few of the main ones below.
Premiere Pro is an Adobe product, which means that you can collaborate with other programs that are a part of Adobe Creative Cloud. You can take various fonts from Adobe typekit to include in your Adobe productions. If you have worked with Adobe Products in the past than you will have an easy time adjusting to the layout of Adobe Premiere Pro. Another positive of learning this program is the enhancement of your skills and it will help you become more marketable to future employers.
