Adobe Premiere Pro Video Editing Certificate Program
CERTIFICATE OF COMPLETION
All students who finish this program will receive a signed certificate of completion verifying their participation in the program.
In this certificate program you will learn how to edit and tell a story using Adobe Premiere Pro CC. We'll go from raw footage all the way to sound mixing and color correction. We'll look at using Adobe's Media Encoder to create digital masters and web-ready versions of your work.
You'll not only learn about the tools needed for editing but also learn to determine when you should or shouldn't use them. In the later courses we'll cover the color correction and sound mixing needed to make your videos look and sound the best they possibly can. We'll cover After Effects CC, which you can use to add dynamic and engaging titles, making your videos stand apart from the crowd. By using dynamic linking we can do all of this without any extra rendering or exporting. We go in depth into how to find the right compression setting using Media Encoder to get you the right balance of file size vs quality, so your digital videos always look good.
Who Should Take This Class
Anyone looking to learn video editing using Adobe Premiere Pro and After Effects. Having a working knowledge of Apple computers and knowledge or experience with Photoshop and other Adobe applications will be helpful but is not required.
This is a hands-on class where you'll "learn by doing" - therefore you'll need a computer (Mac or PC). If you need any particular software installed, that will be detailed below. Not all programs require special software so if there isn't any detailed listed below you will only need a computer with an up-to-date web browser.
If you would like to take your class work and sample projects home, please be sure to bring a Mac compatible portable drive with 4GB of free space.
