I have an important question. I work on Premiere Pro and I love this software (free version). Now, I need to create 3 very short videos for my portfolio, where they will be posted on a website for everyone to watch. These videos will be a commercial for my services and will most probably provide me with clients. So it kind of work as a commercialised video.
So: what if I buy a Premiere Pro subscription, then make these 3 short videos legally and then cancel my subscription within 14 days to get a refund? Technically, is it legal? What will happen to these 3 vidoes (from which I will not earn money)?
No. Portfolio is an online website platform that's included free with your Creative Cloud plan. When you cancel Creative Cloud, your Portfolio website goes goes away. So while the videos may still work locally, nobody will be able to see them online. Does that make more sense now?
That said, a free trial is for serious customers only to try before they buy. IMO, if you have no real intention of keeping your year-long commitment to Creative Cloud, using it for actual projects is dishonest. Better to use other software instead: iMovie, Avid, FinalCut Pro, Cyberlink Power Director, Pinncacle Studio, Corel VideoStudio, etc...
