Description of the video:
Hello and welcome to Premiere Pro: The Basics! In this course, you'll learn how to work with Premiere Pro, which is a professional video editing program. As part of the course, you'll learn how to import assets into Premiere Pro to use in a video project, edit video and audio clips, create, edit and combine sequences, create opening titles and ending credits, and export a completed video in a web friendly format.
Before getting started, you'll want to be familiar with basic video editing skills. You'll also want to make sure you have Premiere Pro and Adobe Media Encoder installed on your computer.
As we go through the course, we'll be referring to exercise files - you can download them from the download links included in each section of the course.
There are a couple of important things to note with the exercise files for Premiere Pro: The Basics - first, the file size for each download is pretty big - each download is around 770 megabytes, and it may take some time to download the files on slower internet connections. Also, due to their size, these files are hosted on Box, IU's cloud storage solution, instead of on IT Training's website.
If you're ready, let's go ahead and get started with Premiere Pro: The Basics!
