Hey everyone,

 

Been diving into the world of video editing lately and Premiere Pro keeps popping up. I'm curious if it's the right fit for me, so I figured I'd ask the experts (you!).

 

Here are some questions bouncing around in my head:

  • Is Premiere Pro beginner-friendly? I have some experience with basic editing software, but nothing too fancy.
  • What kind of projects is Premiere Pro best for? I'm mainly interested in creating videos for YouTube and social media, but might dabble in short films someday.
  • What are some features that make Premiere Pro stand out? Is there anything it can do that other editing software can't?
  • Is the learning curve super steep? I'm willing to put in the work, but don't want to get overwhelmed.

Anyone with Premiere Pro experience, I'd love to hear your thoughts!

Bonus: If you have any Premiere Pro tips or tricks for beginners, feel free to share those as well!

Thanks in advance!

First, is it beginner-friendly? That SO depends on you. For some, the paradigms of how menus work, how things are grouped, makes sense as they start learning. For others, not so much.

 

Which is like those that say the Apple systems are "so intuitive". Well, when I start up a Mac, I can't hardly figure out how to open a program, let alone work on the blame things. Apple is really intuitive for you if the Apple way of doing things is "intuitive" for you.

 

Premiere Pro is built for a wide range of workflows, which is both a strength and a limitation. It can do about any type of programatic video work, from long-form through broadcast to YouTube/web stuff. It may not be the best for you at one specific set of that, like some long-form people still prefer Avid.

 

But it can do anything, and can do Youtube stuff pretty easily.

 

Understand, as a pro app, it isn't designed to do things for you, like the prosumer editing apps. Pro apps assume you want to be in control, and offer tools that you make the settings on. So you add an effect, you normally have to change the settings to get anything going on. So you need to figure out what settings you need to change, how, to get the look and feel you want.

 

Most of the pro apps can do most anything. Premiere's test-based editing is probably a great example of a new, incredibly useful tool. And an area it really stands out with.

 

And the learning curve ... yea, it's a bit steep, but don't worry, as you get more experienced, it gets ... um ... steeper. But by then your capabilities will be high enough that well, you just learn more. Your brain will expand with more active and connected neurons ... and your entire life will be so much better!

 

Enjoy. Get work done. And get outta the office.
