I recently got together for a G+ Hangout with Sports and Portrait Photographer Carol Schlintz and LA Based ProTog Steven Lynch (who are a couple of my colleagues and fellow “Hybrid Heroes” from DiscoverMirrorless.com) to talk about video editing basics and how to use Adobe Premiere Pro.
Steven does an excellent walkthrough of the basics of editing and how to navigate the Adobe Premiere Pro workspace.
Although it’s technically a “Pro” tool, Adobe Premiere Pro is easy enough to be used by beginners, but it’s also chock full of advanced features that make it a perfect choice for those looking for a professional editing solution.
Adobe Premiere Pro is a very versatile application with tons of potential. But remember, we can only cover a limited amount of information in 1 hangout. So if you have any questions at all or you would like to suggest other topics that you’d like to see in future videos, please leave you comments below.
