Beginners Editing

This course is designed to teach a beginner the basics of using Adobe Premiere Pro CC to organise, edit and export video.

The day will consist of two practical editing sessions. The first will act as a introduction to Premiere Pro and will cover organisation of your footage, basic editing techniques, keyboard shortcuts for faster editing, working with audio and video transitions.

The second will be a more advanced edit, where you will learn more of Premiere’s complex features, including titles and credits, colour correction, cutaways and exporting your videos.
