Sample Usage

Walk through:

First screen that pop's up

selecting the new project, will lead you to make  a new project, open project will help you open already existing premiere file, i.e. prproj file ( .prproj is the extension of premiere project files that are saved in editing mode)


This is the second video that pop's up once you select the new project. The three main choices are video, audio and capture: where in you can select the system in which you would like to see your video, and audio files and in which system you would like to capture you output file or edited version of file.

You may also rename you file in the name section and change the location of saving your file here.

(The file name will not be the name of you exported file, it will be the name of you premiere file)

This screen defines you video resolution which you can select from varied options listed with the description on the right.

The sequence name is the name of your output sequence which you will make out of editing your files.

You can change it here, or when you are exporting hte file you are given chance of changing the file name.

You can also select tracks tab from the window and create number of tracks you want to work on, by default premiere will create 3 tracks for both audio and video


This window above is the main work space for editing, you can select the workspaces from the main menu windows option. Mostly editing workspace is used for simple video editing


In the video editing work space project window is where file is imported in the sequence you created, once you import the files, drag them to the timeline to the right.

Just besides the time line are the tools like selection(to select a track), rasor(to cut), pen tool ( to cut a specific are in any shape you may wish to), stretch tool to stretch the time line( which will cause a video to slow down)

You can check out different videos provided on adobe website to know more about tools, you can find more videos on creativecoe.com too.



What the Tool Does Well

Easy to work with other adobe softwares

Easy to understand if you have used other Adobe softwares

Mac and PC compatible

Works with almost all video audio and image formats

Flexible the workspaces

Since its commercially used software, there are many forums and tutorial videos available



What it Does Poorly

Expensive, free trail is for the month, but does not include all the functionality

Needs high end system specifications, and at times degrades the performance of the system

Crashes at times but auto save option available to recover them, still not a good point if the system hangs.

You have to know video editing terms and video configurations before using this software, not a software for layman.
