I was invited to teach a class in Premiere Pro recently at USC! To say I was thrilled was an understatement! The facilities there are second to none. And even better were the inquisitive and talented students!
The class was an advanced editing class and they wanted to see how it would be to edit a project in Premiere Pro. From my discussions they really enjoyed the ease of bringing in clips, scanning them in the icon mode, the new trim window, and the dynamic link. The ability to use their Avid shortcuts was a hit as well as exporting their own shortcuts to use on different machines. Key framing effects, motion and more was well received.
The Dynamic Link to After Effects was really a hit as I showed them how simple it was and no rendering! We looked at adding simple effects and compositing. They loved having this tool at their disposal.
We worked off an outline from An Editors Guide to Adobe Premiere Pro and it was great! I highly recommend it as a go to text.
All in all it was a great experience for the students and myself. I look forward to being invited back again! (Hint)
