Adobe education evangelist Terry Ryan shows you how to use Adobe Premiere Pro CC to import a basic screencast file, make a simple edit, and prepare it for uploading to a video sharing service.
For most people, Adobe Premiere Pro CC means "professional." But you don't have to be a professional or have an extensive background in video to use Premiere Pro. I'm not a pro, yet I've found it very useful for editing my small video projects, such as screen-based demos that I make on my laptop to share with others.
Now that anyone with an Adobe Creative Cloud membership automatically has access to this advanced video editing tool, beginners should know that they can make use of it too. Don't worry about all the available features and options; keep things simple and let the tool do the heavy lifting for you.
In this video I show you how to use Premiere Pro to import a basic screencast file, make a simple edit, and prepare it for uploading to a video sharing service. Over the course of the video I import my video file, display it in the Premier Pro timeline, and export it using Adobe Media Encoder so that it's playable on YouTube. By the end of the video you too should be able to bring your own video into Premiere Pro, alter it a bit, and output it so that you can share it wherever you wish.
This is the first of a series of videos in which I approach Adobe audio and video tools from the perspective of a Creative Cloud member who isn't necessarily familiar with editing audio or video but now has access to a professional set of tools for doing just that. My intent is to provide a starting point for working with these products so that you'll want to explore them further, rather than feel intimidated by them.
The second part shows how to create titles in Adobe Photoshop CC and add them to your projects. The third part shows simple things you can do with Premiere Pro CC and Adobe Audition CC to take your video's sound quality to the next level.
