Best way to learn Adobe Premier.
Hey guys so I'm forced to switch to Adobe Premier Pro CS6 from Final Cut Pro. Basically I am wondering what the best way to learn the program will be? In your experience what is the most effective way to learn? Books? Online Tutorials? Just do it? When I learned Final Cut I went through a bunch of tutorials in a book and it was super helpful. That's the way I'm leaning, but if there is a cheaper or better solution it would be good to know.
I just watched the tutorial videos on adobes website. Just start editing in it and mess around and you can learn a lot that way. Thats what i did! If you have any questions about it then just google it
Its literally almost the same workflow, just different hotkeys which I think you can change anyways. Just mess with it, took me about half hour to get it. No need for a book.
Thanks guys. It looked very similar and basic functions I can handle fine but I wasn't sure if it was similar enough to just jump in. Just wanted to go into it the best way possible here in a month when I have to start doing some heavy lifting on the computer.
Yeah if your experienced with FCP I don't think you will have a problem!
The best way to learn anything is with practice. Youtube is a fantastic tool to help when you need it, but you'll never be more familiar with a program than if you use it often.
If you can find someone to work on an edit with that already knows premiere that'll help. I always notice that when I work with new editors, they always teach me a thing or two that I didn't know before
Try and edit things the way you feel like it and if you bump on an obstacle you can't figure, google it and you'll manage your way though. I've been working on After Effect and Premiere Pro this way since 4 years. Now I'm at school I learn FCP and Avid. Well rounded, I can say IMO that PP is the easiest to use although exports aren't as accurate as Avid for instance.
