Course Outline

Lesson Description
1 Workspace & Starting a Project Understand the interface, the elements within it and how to customise it as you need. Accessing and using different workspaces. Setting up your project, splash screens sequences
2 Importing Assets Getting assets into PP, keeping an organised project panel;  assembling assets in sequences
3 Capturing Footage 'On-Location' (OL) (a programme bundled with Premiere Pro); recording footage directly to your hard disc with OL. Capturing footage from an HDV camera via (firewire) as individual clips, as automated batches and as a whole tape
4 Assemble and Edit a Sequence Common keyboard short-cuts and editing tools for build up ;  frame perfect sequences
6 Transitions Build transitions from scratch and apply and modify 'standard' PP transitions into your sequences. Use the 'motion' effects to build 'Picture-in-Picture' (PiP) effects and apply and modify standards PiP effects to your timelines
7 Titles & the Title Designer Master the title creation tools within PP to add titles to a timeline;  create professional rolling and crawling titles.  Use the title designer to create additional graphic elements to build lower thirds and other graphic and text elements
8 Colour Corrections and Effects Colour correction and colour grading are now essential parts of professional video production. Learn the basics of colour correction in PP, understand the built-in graphs and how to use them, use the basic tools to correct footage, create vignettes, simulate day-for-evening shots and learn how to make your video shine with the 'Filmic Glow' technique (makes video look more like film)
9 Audio in PP Audio is more than 50% of great video. If you have an OK video production but great sound people will stay with it, but if you have a wonderful video production but poor sound you will lose your audience. Learn the PP audio tools (time-line and effects), how to deal with audio problems and, using 'Sound Booth' (SB) (another programme bundled with PP) we will look at some simple audio 'issues' and how to solve them as well as recording a narration directly in PP
10 Output Output your work so that it can be seen and reviewed by your client and your colleagues.  How to output for video, web, tape (and if needed mobile devices) and how to use the 'Adobe Media Encoder' which also ships with PP. We will also take a brief look at 'Encore' (En) which again ships with PP and can be used to create professional standard menu driven DVDs, blue-ray and web output
