Hi and welcome to this QuickStart! tutorial on Premiere Pro CS3, my name is James Gonzalez and I'll be your guide through this overview look at Adobe's Premiere video editing application. Before we begin I need to orientate you on how these videos work. I'm current using screen capturing software to record my voice and computer screen, the video images you'll see running on my screen version of Premiere will be captured by this screen recording program. Due to the limitations of this recording software at times the video playback in my version of Premiere may be a little jerky and the sound playback may be a little bit distorted. But rest assured when you playback the video sequences inside Premiere on your own computer the playback will be just fine. Premiere Pro has a deep feature set so in this quick overview I'll only be hitting some of the highlights of this complex and powerful video application. This tutorial is organized in roughly the same order that you would organize your actual video editing. After a quick overview of the Premiere workspace and interface components I review the new features found in the CS3 version of Premiere Pro, I then review how to set up your Premiere Pro project files including details on how Premiere will process your audio and video components as you edit. This is followed by information on how to import and capture content in the Premiere, clips imported and captured into Premiere end up in the project panel so next I demonstrate how to use the project panel and preview monitor to organize preview and trim your clips. I then demonstrate how to work clips into a timeline by adding them to a sequence, once on a timeline clips can be manually moved, trimmed, cut, copied and pasted. As an example of the powerful editing capabilities of Premiere I next demonstrate how to trim, clip, in and out points using both three point and four point editing techniques as well as how to create both insert and overlay edits, placing two clips side by side in the timeline window creates a cut with the last frame of the first clip is followed immediately by the first frame in the second clip. You can emphasis or embellish this transition between clips with a variety of wipes, zooms and dissolves that are collectively referred to as transitions. So I next demonstrate a sampling of Premiere Pro transitions, using Premiere Pro's title designer component, its easy to design, create and use sophisticated titles in your project so next I demonstrate this title designer by creating and styling a sample of titles. Similar to transitions, effects adds special visual or audio characteristics to your clips such as the ability to rotate, animate, distort or resize them. Changing the volume of your audio clips is also possible as well as changing the bass and treble and the rest of the audio characteristics. So I demonstrate several of these effects and how to modify them once they've been applied to a clip using the effect controls panel. Lastly I review the many export options available in both the export movie and file dialogues as well as the Adobe media encoder. So now that I've given you an overview of what's covered is this quick start tutorial to Premiere Pro CS3 let's get started with a quick tour of the Premiere workspace.
