Good day to you. I had a general question about Adobe products and wasn't entirely sure where I could post it so I chose this group as one possibility and I hope somebody can help. I've been shooting a video of my mother making bead jewellery for Youtube and I was wondering what the best Adobe application would be. I'm only using an outdated piece of software and find it limiting. The kinds of things I want to do are obviously editing the video in general. But also adding some sort of transition effects and also having a section of the video speed up plus adding music to this section.
Hopefully somebody can help.

You have three choices.
It depends on how much learning you want to do, how much you want to pay and how often this will be a requirement.
There are three Adobe offerings: Premiere Rush, Premiere Elements and Premiere Pro
This order is also from easy to hard and least cost to most expensive.
All three can do your requirements of transitions and speed effects and music.
Take a look at the above and explore the apps help pages. It will give you a good idea of the ease of use for each.
It may be usefule for you to know that Rush works on mobile.
Hey, thanks for the information and I'll definitely look into it. One further question if I start with Rush is what I learn on that application transferable to the next application and so on?
Hello again. I just looked at the cost of Adobe Rush and it appears that it is the same price per month in the UK as Premiere Pro so is it worth starting with Rush or just going straight to Pro. If Rush is simpler than Premiere Pro how come the price is the same per month?
if I start with Rush is what I learn on that application transferable to the next application and so on?
No. Rush is a quick & easy editor for social media posts on the go.
Pro-level tools like After Effects & Premier Pro are much more sophisticated with a much steeper learning curve.
If you want a middle-of-road, consumer-level video editor, that doesn't have a steep learning curve, use Premier Elements.
