If you are an experienced FCP user and want to transfer across to Adobe Premiere Pro, this bridging course will provide you with these skills in a one day intensive. Adobe Premiere Pro CC is being used increasingly in corporate and production environments as an alternative to Final Cut Pro for timeline-based video editing.

Course content includes:

• Essential shortcut keys and workflows in Premiere Pro.
• Bringing FCP projects into Premiere Pro
• Setting up Premiere to work in a similar way as FCP for the quickest translation of skills
• Dynamic Link to other Adobe apps (including After Effects, Encore and Speedgrade)
• New refined trimming tools including Hover scrub
• Using Premiere Pro with other Final Cut Studio apps, including Motion, Soundtrack Pro and Color.
• Media Management in Premiere Pro
• Editing in Premiere Pro (including Multi Camera)
• Effects in Premiere Pro (including the new 3 way colour corrector and warp stabiliser)
• Exporting using Adobe Media Encoder
• Basic Blu-ray and DVD authoring in Encore

This course is designed for students who are already very familiar with editing using Final Cut Pro and would not suit students who do not have non-linear editing experience.
