69 Free Tutorial Videos to Help You Learn Adobe Premiere Pro CS6

Over at Creative Cow, Andrew Devis has been hard at work creating a slew of videos for his ongoing series of Adobe Premiere Pro CS6 tutorials. The videos cover a multitude of topics like the basic interface, using the various editing tools, transitions, effects, titles, and most recently color correction and grading. Here are some videos from the series to get you started:

These videos are just the tip of the iceberg and already they have illuminated various features I didn't know about in Adobe Premiere Pro CS6, such as the ability to change what colors the program considers to be a highlight, midtone, or shadow when color correcting, the Lightworks-like JKL Trimming, and a way to change the playback speed of a clip that looks to be more intuitive than the methods used in Final Cut Pro 7. Be sure to keep your eye on the Creative Cow site, or subscribe to their RSS feed, as there are more videos to come in the series.

Thanks for the link. Does anyone know of good tutorials on general NLE principles? Laying out multiple tracks on a timeline, how to cut interviews, etc? There are heaps of tutorials on specific techniques but I’ve not found much on the general concepts of editing.

This might be a good one, not sure what you're looking for but this tutorial gives some of the general groundwork for organizing an edit:

Anyone want to share how stable they are finding Premiere CS6? I've been using FCPx the last few months and am considering giving CS6 a try as well.

Premiere is amazing to work on, you seldomly need to render and it's extremely fast, not to mention it work naitively with all the most commonly used camera formats unlike final cut which requires you to transcode everything to prores then begin editing

FCP X does *not* require you to transcode to ProRes for editing. If you do decide to transcode (and you don't have to) then you can transcode in the background, and FCP X will seamlessly swap to the transcoded media when it's ready. You can also quit FCP X, delete the transcoded media in the Finder, then relaunch, and the original media will automatically relink.

Better than all of that is that you can start editing with your footage while it's copying from its media; before it's even finished importing. As soon as you press "Import", every clip you chose is available, and you can work with the footage as you wish, just like regular media. It plays straight off the memory card while it's copying in the background. When copying finishes, it seamlessly swaps to the new copy. Very good indeed.

I've been following these tutorials for a couple of months. They are absolutely superb. Andrew doesn't miss a thing and goes at a perfect pace. I'm putting them on my iPad so I can play the tutorial and work on my video file at the same time.

I was going with FCP initially but many Apple products like FCP X are already behind the curve on innovation.

FCP has been a very cumbersome experience. What with all that rendering. Avid MC has always been my tools of choice, will be happy to give Premiere pro a go.

Wood screws using a minimum duration of 2 A¼" are recommended. If you might be a movie freak, then you better get yourself a head unit so you don't need to visit a show house to take pleasure from great movies. The average consumer may be willing to be satisfied with this solution not knowing the truth.

Did I miss something or what? The title says 69 FREE videos. I just watched 10 and that was all that popped on my screen. Hmmmmmmm?

I was just about to make the conversion from FCP7 to FCPX after 5 years of FCP and over 1,000 videos of which 400 plus were television shows. However, I waited till the "bugs" were worked out and the product was at least semi or mostly finished and just when I finally downloaded a "trial" wouldn't you know it, Apple makes it mandatory to upgrade to Mavericks, which all I read has a legacy of issues and especially with FCPX 10.1 including but not limited to total HDD corruption and/or most or all data lost and even former projects under FCPX. After all this, I decided to take the Adobe Trial Plunge and trying to learn, I find that Adobe TV series at

So, people love to receive home decor items as gifts on Diwali.
In addition they declare that online forums here have no impacts on corporate performance.
If you are creative in planning to surprise your husband,
he, more than likely, will be quite pleased with the specialness of your effort regardless of
the size of your gift.
