Robbie Carman’s “Migrating from Final Cut Pro 7 to Premiere Pro”

There are a lot of good resources for editors who are familiar with Final Cut Pro who want to learn how to use Adobe Premiere Pro. Among the best of these resources are those created by Robbie Carman and his partners.

If you’re looking for video training on this subject, I recommend Robbie’s Migrating from Final Cut Pro 7 to Premiere Pro, available on the website. In this series, Robbie is friendly, casual, and engaging while imparting a lot of useful information; he seems to be a natural teacher. I especially appreciate how much Robbie’s years of experience as an editor and colorist come through in his evaluations of the pros and cons of certain ways of working.

You don’t need to take my word for how good this video series is; the fine folks at have made some videos available as free samples:

If you’re looking for a book on the subject, then you should definitely check out Robbie’s book Editor’s Guide to Adobe Premiere Pro. (It also contains several hours of videos on its companion DVD.)

Robbie also recorded a one-hour online seminar about color correction and grading with Premiere Pro, which I highly recommend.
