Welcome to another in a series of BizVid Communications video tutorials. Today, I will be instructing you in the basic editing techniques on Premiere Pro. I’m using Premiere Pro CC but what you will learn is applicable to any version. I want to create a new project…so I position my mouse on the “New Project” icon and click. The next screen is where you will name your project and assign it to a folder. First, I’ll name the project, “Basic Editing.” Next, I’ll click “okay” and that will launch Premiere Pro.
First, I want to look for the section that will show what clips I have to work with. In editing terms, these are called assets. I can go to “File” and click then scroll down to “Import” and click. Or, I’ll position my mouse inside this blank area in the “Project” pane, right click and scroll down to “Import” and click. Here, it takes me to the desktop where I can search out my assets. I’ll open the “Video Clips” folder, select the clip “Walking” then click “Open.” As you can see, it brought the selected clip into the project. Next, I want to get the second clip called “Grape Vines” then click open. And there it is. Now to build the timeline. All you have to do is click and drag one of the clips into this little icon called “New Item.” When you do, your “Sequence” is automatically created and you are off and running.
