Adobe Premiere Pro CS6 Learn by Video Core Training in Video Communication

Video Description

This critically acclaimed training course from Adobe Press and video2brain combines interactive video and a printed reference to teach the fundamentals of Premiere Pro CS6 as well as the basic principles of video editing. Structured around the objectives of the Adobe Certified Associate exam “Video Communication Using Adobe Premiere Pro CS6”, the product combines 15 hours of video, complete with lesson files. Experienced instructor Maxim Jago introduces core non-linear editing techniques as a first step to using advanced edits, with special effects, complex timelines, titles, clean audio and music. By the end of this course, the student will be able to work with multiple media types, create sequences and output to multiple formats using Premiere Pro CS6. Maxim walks the student through the complete editing process using Premiere Pro CS6, including importing media, using clips and markers, adding transitions, correcting color, and compositing. New features get special treatment, like stabilizing footage without visiting After Effects, applying effects via adjustment layers, and streamlined trimming using JKL dynamic trimming, which allows you to play your edits and adjust the timing of your cuts in a single step.
