This is a tutorial page where we shall be looking at video editing tutorials, YouTube tips and Web design tutorials.
In todays’ tutorial, we will be talking about Beginners’ Guide to Adobe Premier Pro cc
- The first thing we are going to do is to launch our Adobe Premier cs6
- A dialogue box is displayed
- Here we have new project, open project, help and recent project.
- Since we are starting afresh, we click on new project.
- Another dialogue box is displayed for us to name the project and do other settings from the scratch disc settings by linking our video to a location and directory
- Then we name the project and click ok.
- Another dialogue will pop up for us to set the sequence. (That is for us to match the settings of the camera with the settings we are going to be working with in Adobe Premier Pro)
- Name the sequence and click ok.
Below is the interface of Adobe Premier pro cc
There are about five panels there;
- The source panel- to view your raw videos
- The Programme Monitor- to view your edited videos
- The Project Panel- to store your raw videos
- The tool bars- for all the tools we are going to be using in editing our videos
- The Timeline- for editing the videos
The next thing is to import our videos into the timeline
We can do this in ways;
- by pressing CTR+I on our keyboard or by going through the file menu
- File-Import and it will take you to where your videos are.
Once you have imported your video, the next thing is to start editing them either through the source panel or on the timeline by cutting the unwanted parts off.
You can do your cutting by using the razor tool or by pressing CTR+K on your keyboard and it is better than using the razor tool because you will be able to cut, delete and close the video clips. In order not to leave blank spaces in between the videos.
You can add effect and transition to your edited video and it is important to note that, any effect or transition you use on your videos can be controlled from the effect control panel which you can always locate in the windows on the menu bar and you can bring it to your work area by undocking the panel.
You can add text to your videos by pressing CTR+T on your keyboard or by going through the file menu i.e
File- New- Title which will take you to the panel to do the writing and you can later close the panel and go and locate the title you have written from the project panel. Then you can now drag and drop the title on the project/video on the timeline.
Also, you add audio to your videos by importing the audio in just the way you have imported your video.
You can also add audio effect and audio transition to your videos.
The next step is to render the video onto our computer
- You can do this by pressing CTR+M on your keyboard or by going through the file menu
- Click on file-export-media
- A dialogue box is displayed for you to choose the video and audio format as well as the location to render the video
- Click on export or Queue
Note: Queue option is selected if you have an encoder installed on your computer and also if you have more than one video you are rendering.
