For a future assignment in COMM240 we are going to be shooting video, then editing it in Adobe Premiere Pro. I have used the software once before and it was pretty simple to catch on to.
To begin using the program, first shoot or collect video footage. You can also work with graphics, audio files and more. While you are shooting video it is best to take notes about how you want that shot to be used in the final video. Next, start a new project and import your video and audio files. Then you can view the clips and set edit points before you put them in the sequence. Once the videos are in the sequence you can fade shots so they transition smoothly with each other. You can go much more into detail with editing but of course, these are just the basics to get you started.
