1. STARTING OUT.
To begin using Adobe Premiere Pro please choose the icon in CORE APPS on the start menu.
The first thing you will see is a box asking
whether you would like to create a new
Project or work on an existing project.
The most recent Projects will appear as their
titles above “New Project”
The Next window you see will ask you
to name your new project.
From there you will be asked to specify
the project presets. These are to do with the
Size of the video you are working with and
the audio quality you used.
If you filmed using Flip cameras you would
be best using DV PAL > Standard 48kHz6+

THIS IS PART OF LESSON ONE (1)
The Premiere Pro interface.
At first the Premiere Pro interface may be a little daunting but it can be easily split up into 7 areas that help you
with your workload.
1 – Project – This is where all the files you use are stored. Each file you import automatically sits in this area
for you to then drag into the timeline so you begin editing it.
2 – Effect Controls – Any effect you add to your footage can be controlled in here using a simple sliding scale
3 – Video Preview – This is where your video appears and you can watch what you have edited by pressing
Play or hitting spacebar.
4 – Effects – A series of drop down menu’s containing audio and video effects. These can be added by dragging
them from this window onto your footage in the Timeline (See Key 5).
5 – Timeline – This where you edit your footage. Using the red line to travel along your footage this is your
marker to make any edits. To move the marker just click the blue indicator at the top of the red line and slide it
across using your mouse.
6 – Audio levels – These tell you how loud your audio is. If it’s in the red then it is too loud and will crackle.
Ideally you’ll want your levels in the middle around the 12 mark.
7 – Tools – This window holds various Tools you can use to edit your footage. Try them all out to see what they do.

2. Importing Footage.
To start editing you need to import the footage
You have just shot. With the Flip cameras you
Simply need to save them into a folder.
Then you go to File >Import and a window will
Select the footage you require and click
“Open”. This will import the footage.
You can select multiple files using
Control and Left Mouse click and then
Clicking on “Open”.
Your footage will now appear in
The Project window as indicated by
The red arrow.

3. Editing your Footage.
To begin editing your footage you must drag it into the TIMELINE by holding
Down Left Mouse click on Film/Audio icon (See photo) and then drag
it on to the TIMELINE.
When it has been dragged onto the Timeline you will see your video appear in the Video Preview window.
4. Cutting out the bad parts of your Footage.
To make a cut on your footage press C on your keyboard and you
Will notice your cursor will change into a razor blade.
Next you need to move the cursor to where you want to make a cut
And press the Left Mouse button to make a cut.
If you find this lacks accuracy try moving the red line on your
Timeline to where you want to cut and make it on the red line.
This is a more accurate way of making transitions.

5. Adding Effects.
To add an effect couldn’t be simpler.
The effects are all stored in drop
Down menus on the bottom left of
The Premiere Pro interface.
The effects are all stored in drop down menus within the
Effects window. Just hit the arrow to find the one you want.
When you have found the effect you require then
Drag it onto the timeline in the same way you did your
footage and the effect will be applied.
When the effect is in an area that it can be applied it will turn
a burgundy colour. Let go of the left click button and it will

Once you have saved and exited the Text Creator window you must drag it from the Project bin onto your
Timeline as you did with your footage earlier.
It will have to be placed on the video layer above the
video as it works in a Hierarchy so whatever is on top
is seen over what is below it.
7. Exporting your video.
To export your video click on
File > Export > Media

Hi guyz today we are going to be taking about colour correction in Adobe Premiere pro, this is a new Lesson2+
- February 22, 2019 at 4:18 pm #14349
WHAT IS COLOUR CORRECTION
Colour correction is a step in the process of film
editing that can make a huge difference. It is the process of adjusting the hue (colour
and chroma) and luminance (brightness and exposure) of an image. The purpose is
to correct videos that are too dark or light, or eliminate a colour cast in a clip. It can
also be used to emphasize or de-emphasize a detail in a clip. Do not get this confused
with Color Grading, which is the process of color editing that stylizes your video.4+

Lesson 1. Workspace
In previous tutorials, the workspace for our Adobe Premiere Pro CC project
has been set to “Editing”. For the purpose of color correcting, it is suggested
to change your workspace to “Color Correction”. To do so, go to Window >
Work Space > Color Correction.
You will find your Source Panel in the upper middle box of your screen. The
Source Panel displays the clip that is selected in your Project Panel. For a
before an after of your video, it is best to select the clip that you are
correcting in your Project Panel by double clicking, and going to the same
frame that you have selected in your Timeline. The Project Panel is located
on the next tab to the right of the Source panel. You can also check the “Shot
Split View” under most Color Correction Effects settings.
It is also suggested to display your scopes in the Reference Panel, located on
the bottom right corner of your screen. To do so, select the Settings icon
(represented by a wrench) located at the bottom right corner of the
Reference panel, and select All Scopes, you will learn what each scope
displays later in this tutorial. Your monitor should now look like this.
