I've just completed the first week of the Adobe Skillbuilder: Video course, and I've really enjoyed it because I have learnt so much in such a short space of time. I am very used to working with digital images in photographic form, and can edit photos quite contentedly, but video is an area I have never really worked in before.
The first week has been interesting in that I've seen how easily a basic video can be constructed using Adobe Premiere CC. Like all well-designed software, it allows newbies such as myself to create something half way decent, but also has all the bells and whistles that I am now eager to learn about, that will lift my work to the next level.
It helped this week that I was using footage that other people created, rather than my own. This enabled me to focus on the software and how I was going to piece it all together.
My final piece is a bit grubby, and I can see errors every time I watch it. Some of my clips don't phase well with the music, and my logo at the end is the wrong colour and is not overlaying a video clip like I wanted to do. Consider it a work in progress, and one that will continue to be refined, and may even be replaced on Vimeo.
Week 2 of ADOBE skills builder: Video
The second week of my Adobe course on video is now complete, and my video has been posted. I've learnt a great deal more about Adobe Premiere Video Editing this week, and I feel that my resulting video is much more refined, but still has a way to go to be truly wonderful.
