Premiere Pro CC Essential Training 2015

I’m working on a new course called Premiere Pro CC Essential Training 2015. I watched the relinking media video on Premiere Pro CC to get started. In Lesson 1, I launched Premiere Pro and starting a new project (new Start Screen). In Lesson 1, I took a tour of the Premiere Pro interface. I went a bit deeper into the editing tools and layouts. In Lesson 3, I started from scratch by importing media.

In Lesson 3, I learned how to import card-based media.

I made and in and out output by pressing the “I” and “O” keys.Screen Shot 2017-02-06 at 9.55.07 AM.png

In Lesson 4, I played and marked shots in preparation for editing.Screen Shot 2017-02-07 at 9.03.25 AM.png

I made this edit by making in and out points by pressing the “I” and “O” keys. I sub-clipped shots. I did that by drawing the videos until they reach their limit.

In Lesson 4, I set up a sequence.Screen Shot 2017-02-08 at 9.49.01 AM.png

I made this sequence by selecting every file under the “Barbara Soundbites” folder and dragging them into the timeline.

I performed insert edits.Screen Shot 2017-02-08 at 10.21.44 AM.png

I made this sequence from the folder titled “First Soundbites”.

In Lesson 4, I moved clips and swap shots.Screen Shot 2017-02-09 at 9.42.22 AM.png

Made the gaps by selecting the clips and pressing Command>Right Arrow. And moved some of the clips by selecting the clip and holding down the Command and Option buttons  and moving them on the other side.

In Lesson 4, I removed material and performed basic trims.

Screen Shot 2017-02-09 at 10.29.41 AM.png This was a part of the clip where the subject had a long pause with her answer.

Screen Shot 2017-02-09 at 10.31.36 AM.png I made and in and out point by pressing the “I” and “O” keys and holding the Command key and the Option key to delete the selected clip.

In Lesson 4, I overwritten B-roll and performed three-point edits.
