Adobe Premiere is a video editing software. Video editing involves the process of cutting, arranging, and manipulating shots to create a cohesive piece. On top of all that editing also allows for color correction and audio mixing. The goal of editing is to create a film that tells your audience a story, through both visual picture and sound.

We have started to learn how to use Adobe video editing software. Premiere Pro, After Effects, SpeedGrade, and Audition are the video editing softwares that Adobe offers. We focused on Adobe Premiere Pro. This is a software used by professionals for very well known films. Premiere allows for CGI effects that are used in movies such as Avatar and Iron Man 3.

To begin learning Premiere we started with the basics. We learned how to insert video and audio into the program. We learned how to move the video and audio, as well as the order in which they should be placed to take priority. The other main focuses were cutting, deleting, and moving clips. After that comes the editing of the audio; which could be voice over, music, or sound effects. Premiere is a software that requires trial and error to fully understand. Eventually we will edit our own video in Adobe Premiere Pro.

Curious about Adobe software I watched a video Adobe After Effects vs Adobe Premiere Pro. In this video I learned the differences between After Effects and Premiere Pro. Essentially, Premiere Pro is done first to complete the basic editing of video clips and audio. This allows you to sequentially order them and cut out unnecessary parts. After Effects is used for video composition; this is layering several different videos, audio, and effects all into one to create a composite video.
