Hi, and welcome to Virtual Training Company's course on Premiere Pro CS3. My name is James Gonzalez. I'll be your guide through this look at Adobe's industry-leading video editing application. If you've used Premiere Pro before, you can probably skip ahead to the What's Covered in This Tutorial movie in the New Features movie and find out what this tutorial will cover and catch up on some of the changes that Adobe has implemented in this CS3 version of Premiere Pro. Premiere Pro CS3 is a software-based, digital non-linear editing application. It works with digital video and other digital media, including scanned images, digitally-created artwork, and animation sequences. I have a variety of media here in My Project Panel section of Premiere Pro, a variety of digital video, audio, still image graphics. Now being a software-only solution, Premiere Pro CS3 can be installed on any personal computer that meets or exceeds it's minimum requirements. The CS3 version of Premiere Pro will also work on Macintoshes as well as Windows machines, although its capabilities are enhanced through the use of add-on software plug-ins and specialized hardware. Premiere Pro CS3 does not require anything else to perform. Premiere Pro does not convert analog video and audio sources to digital formats and can only do so through the use of built-in or add-in hardware, such as video capture cards and FireWire connection. Using a graphical user interface that mimics, to a degree, its film and tape-based editing predecessors, Premiere Pro makes easy work of dissolves, wipes, fades, and other transitions and effects that replace traditional AV roll editing. Media sources are not constrained to linear media such as video tape or audio tracks, and source media can be accessed immediately without fast-forwarding or rewinding tape. I have a variety of playback controls here. Notice that I can move forward without having to rewind tape, fast-forwarding. Sequences can be reordered without re-recording them. I have a variety of clips here that can be reordered in any sequence. This entire Timeline here is called a Sequence, but I can also create additional sequences using some of these same clips rearranged in different orders. Premiere Pro contains a full complement of digital video effects that can be previewed in real time. I can demonstrate that right now by opening up the Effects bin here and here my Video Effects bin right there. I can drag a bend effect right there, and notice here in my Program view that digital video effect is applied in real time. Premiere Pro's Title Designer creates text for video similar to a traditional character generator. It provides a variety of tools to create and edit titles and essentially applies desktop publishing technology to your video projects. I can demonstrate that quickly by choosing File, New, Title. That brings up the Title Designer, and I can go ahead and use a variety of tools here in the Designer to create customized titles. Premiere Pro can also import and export edit decision lists in a variety of supported AAF file formats. Let's go ahead and close the Title Designer. You can also import and export edit decision lists or EDLs, which are transcripts of the edits in a program. These are used to reproduce your edits on another system, usually a higher ended system. Premiere Pro can also read EDL files from other editing systems. Premiere Pro CS3 allows you to achieve complex audio editing and includes a variety of tools, including an Audio Mixer. Here's the audio mixer near the top here. This resembles a traditional mixing board. You can adjust the level placement and sound character of an audio element, fade, boost, mix, and pan multiple tracks of audio, and set very precise audio in-points and much, much more. A Premiere file consists of detailed set of instructions called a Project. These instructions consist of media files intended to be used in an edited video program and editing decisions that include the order of the media clips, transitions, audio levels, and effects. A Premiere Pro project uses a musical score metaphor, dictating when and how media files should play. That's probably represented best by the Timeline down here at the bottom. It's important to understand that a Premiere Pro project does not contain the files themselves. Theses files over here; let me close the Effects panel in the Project window; are part of this project, but they're only references or pointers to where those files actually reside on your hard drive. These file references are called clips. In this way, you never edit the files directly, just their representations in the project. This is referred to as Non-destructive editing. Now since these Premiere Pro CS3 files consist almost entirely of a detailed set of instructions, the project file itself is usually quite small. On the other hand, the source files that go into the project take up a lot more space. So there you have an overview of the Premiere Pro application. Let me now move on to the next movie and give you a more specific rundown of exactly what this tutorial course on Premiere Pro CS3 will cover.
