: My New Book on Professional Video Editing with Adobe Software Ships Soon
My brand new book on Adobe Premiere Pro is written and off to the presses. It was written specifically for the many professional editors who already know how to edit using tools like Final Cut Pro and Avid, but need to now learn Adobe Premiere Pro. The book is a fast-paced, but thorough exploration of what an experienced video editor needs. The idea literally came from my own staff who were frustrated by all the existing books and classes on the market.
The official description:
In this intermediate level book three experienced editors take students step-by-step through the entire editing process in Premiere Pro, from file creation all the way through output. Along the way they’ll learn the ins-and-outs of (or “to do things such as”) file management, essential and intermediate editing techniques, color correction, audio mixing and repairing, titling and effects, and delivering their video onto tape, the web, and mobile devices. They’ll learn to work within the Adobe ecosystem as well, getting up to speed quickly on time saving tools such as Dynamic Link, Adobe Story, and more.
As they work through sections, they’ll find references to engaging videos that accompany the book, giving them a visual and audio frame of reference and solidifying their knowledge of the program.
Students will learn to:
- Quickly organize their existing Final Cut or Avid projects, or create new projects to use right away in Premiere Pro
- Understand how to use Premiere Pro with other Adobe software
- Edit their footage the way they like but with tips and techniques from authors with tons of experience in all the editing programs and who speak your language.
- Put their skills to work immediately by using the accompanying lesson files to work through the steps in the book
