Introduction to Adobe Premiere Pro Interface
10 minutes
• Timeline panel: This is where you’ll do most of your actual editing. You view and work on sequences (the term for edited video segments or entire projects) in the Timeline panel. One strength of sequences is that you can nest them (place sequences inside other sequences). In this way, you can break up a production into manageable chunks or create unique special effects. • Tracks: You can layer—or composite—video clips, images, graphics, and titles on an unlimited number of tracks. Video clips on upper video tracks cover whatever is directly below them on the Timeline. Therefore, you need to give clips on higher tracks some kind of transparency or reduce their size if you want clips on lower tracks to show through. • Monitor panels: You use the Source Monitor (on the left) to view and trim raw clips (your original footage). To view a clip in the Source Monitor, double-click it in the Project panel. The Program Monitor (on the right) is for viewing your sequence. Some editors prefer working with only one monitor screen. The lessons throughout this book reflect a two-monitor configuration. You can change to a single-monitor view if you choose. Click the Close button on the Source tab to close that monitor. In the main menu, choose Window > Source Monitor to open it again. • Project panel: This is where you place links to your project’s media files: video clips, audio files, graphics, still images, and sequences. You can use bins—similar to folders—to organize your assets. • Media Browser: This panel helps you browse your hard drive to find footage. It’s especially useful for file-based camera media. • Effects panel: This panel contains all the clip effects you will use in your sequences, including video filters, audio effects, and transitions (docked, by default, with the Project panel). Effects are grouped by type to make them easier to find. • Audio Mixer: This panel (docked, by default, with the Source and Effect Controls panels) is based on audio production studio hardware, with volume sliders and panning knobs. There is one set of controls for each audio track on the Timeline, plus a master track. • Tools panel: Each icon in this panel represents a tool that performs a specific function, typically a type of edit in a sequence. The Selection tool is context-sensitive, which means it changes appearance to indicate the function that matches the circumstances. If you find your cursor doesn’t work as you expect it, it might be because you have the wrong tool. • Effect Controls panel: This panel (docked, by default, with the Source and Audio Mixer panels, or accessible via the Window menu) displays the controls for any effects applied to a clip you select in a sequence. Motion, Opacity, and Time Remapping controls are always available for visual clips. Most effect parameters are adjustable over time, allowing you to animate effects.

How To Import A Video To Premiere Pro Interface and How To Do Quick Cut and Join of Videos
7 Minutes
The easiest way to import video files is just by dragging them from the explorer (or finder if you’re using a Mac) to the program panel. Another way you can import is by using the import option in the menu of Premiere Pro. And the last way is by double-clicking in the program panel. Keep in mind that Premiere doesn’t support all files types. Videos that have a .mkv extension will cause an error when being imported, so you’ll have to find a way to convert those files to either .mov or .mp4 files. Those are always supported by Premiere.

Animations and Keyframing in Premiere Pro
9 Minutes
To animate a property is to change its value over time. In Premiere Pro, effect properties can be animated by assigning keyframes to them. A keyframe marks the point in time where you specify a value, such as spatial position, opacity, or audio volume. To create a change in a property over time, you set at least two keyframes—one keyframe for the value at the beginning of the change, and another keyframe for the value at the end of the change. Premiere Pro then creates a gradual change in values between keyframes, called interpolation. You can work with keyframes either In the Timeline or in the Effect Controls panel.
