A Newbie's Guide To Adobe Premiere

Postby Up In Flamez » Thu Oct 12, 2006 12:00 am

hey there, i was bored and i finished all my hw so i thought i would make a tutorial. before u read this tutorial, i would like to give credit to LadyMercury cuz i used her tutorial as a template for my tutorial. anyway on to the tutorial

Also another thing. as i am writing this tutorial i dont have any vids made in premiere on this website. Why? because for some reason everytime i try to connect with CuteFTP it always gets disconnected. So dont ask how i know about premiere when none of my current vids r made in it


Part 1 - Beginning To Use Adobe Premiere

ima be using Adobe Premiere 6.5, not much of a difference between 6.0 except that 6.5 has a new titler, a few new effects, and real-time preview. most of this information can be used in premiere pro too

Aight when u first open up premiere, u must make your project settings. I will not be making a tutorial on that, go here http://www.animemusicvideos.org/guides/ ... setup.html

NOTE : 6.5 users, use these settings in 'Keyframe and Rendering'
Image

REAL TIME PREVIEW : only in 6.5 and it is good for effects like black and white, fades,invert, etc. but for things like 'Ghosting' or 'Radial Blur' u wud have to render those sections

Here's the basics of the Adobe Premiere Interface
Image
(CLICK IMAGE TO INCREASE SIZE)

These your editing tools, the most common ones would be the Razor tool and the Arrow Tool
Image

1. Arrow Selection Tool - Moving Clips Around and Trimming
2. Multi Selection Tool - Selecting Multiple Clips
3. Rate Stretch Tool - Slowing or Speeding Clips
4. Razor Tool - Cutting Clips
5. Hand Tool - Moving clips (not that different from the Arrow)
6. Zoom Tool - Zooming on the Timeline (better to use the zooming tool at the bottom of the timeline)
7. Opacity Tool - Changing the Opacity of a clip
8. In and Out Point Tool - Cutting Clips

BEFORE IMPORTING CLIPS MAKE SURE THE VIDEO IS NOT DIVX/XVID AND THAT THE MUSIC IS WAV FILES!!!!


now lets import some files
Image

either do that or right click on the project window like i did here
Image

Just drag the audio on to the timeline and click the squiggly button to see the waveform
Image

same thing with the video
Image

in premiere u cant repeat the clip over and over again by dragging like in Sony Vegas

to add an audio or video track simply right click and select what u want
Image

so u want to get started on cutting clips?
just select your razor tool and click where u want to split it
NOTE : A SHORTCUT TO CUTTING A CLIP IS PRESSING F10(if u press F10 it will cut every layer where the scrubber is.

MAIN TRACK EDITING : in case u havent noticed by now, Adobe Premiere 6.X cant have transitions in any track except track 1

Single Track Editing or A/B Editing???

Here's how a single track with a transition looks like
Image

and here's how a A/B editing transition looks like
Image

which one looks easier to u? to most ppl it would probably be A/B editing and that is the one i recommend

In the next tutorial i will be going over Transparency and Speed

Proper spelling and grammar would be nice in a tutorial. Otherwise you're not going to be taken seriously (nor should you be).

It's called credibility. If you can't spell or make use of proper grammar, all of this is pretty much for nothing.

think about it like this:
you want a job, and get an interview.
at the interview, you show up in street clothes, and all of your answers to the questions make heavy use of colloquialisms (slang).

do you think you'll be considered by the interviewer?
(the answer is no)

the same principal applies here.

Proper punctuation takes more time to type but your article is easier to read afterwards. Since this is a tutorial, it should be designed for READER friendliness, not WRITER convenience. :)

whatever, the only grammar mistakes i did was that i wrote 'dont' and 'u' instead of don't and you

i dont know why everyone is making such a big deal on small things like that.

If I may just say, I've always interpreted people who don't use proper grammar and spelling as having speech impediments. I don't care how well written the piece is, you'll sound like you got dropped on your head as a kid or something. At least in my head. Part of it is because it takes longer to read, so everything sounds slow. Granted, this thread isn't too bad--I'm hearing a redneck accent right now.

Anyways, you'll have far fewer people complaining about proper spelling and grammar than improper use of them. So if nothing else you'll save yourself a few headaches.

I'm not "pushing"

I'm just saying if you guys prefer all the proper grammar I'll do it. Doesn't really matter to me, it's no trouble. I just want people focusing on the tutorial not my interent grammar

Not to add fuel to the fire... but I think most noobs will be using Premiere Pro since Premiere 6.x and later are hard as hell to find. While still marginaly the same as 6.x, stuff like the timeline setup, functions, and display are bit different. But go ahead with the guide since it will introduce the basic working of the program which is mostly the same. Do watch the spelling and grammer. This is formal writing like it or not and we perfer good speech. Just my two cents in... *runs our before flame war*
