Try basic video editing techniques

Go from raw footage to finished video using Adobe Premiere Pro.

1. Understand the workspace

Get familiar with the tools and how to navigate among the workspace panels. Import video from your computer and create your initial sequence.

2. Start with the basics

See how to trim and rearrange clips in the Timeline, bring in audio, and add transitions.

3. Add titles and graphics

Create onscreen titles in Premiere Pro or Adobe Photoshop CC, and even stylize and animate your graphics.

4. Expand your editing skills

Learn shortcuts for cutting, moving, and stretching clips in the Timeline. Easily apply special effects, and adjust color using the Lumetri Color panel.

5. Work with audio

Polish your soundtrack by adding transitions, adjusting levels, and using customizable audio effects or convenient presets.

6. Export your completed video

Choose from an array of standard video formats, select the image to represent your video, and easily publish to Vimeo, YouTube, and more. You can also use the Adobe Media Encoder queue, which lets you continue to work in Premiere Pro as your video encodes in the background.
