Video editing is hard work

So today I was given the opportunity to learn about using Adobe Premier Pro to edit a short video.

Most of the time that I have been editing videos, I have been shooting on the mobile phone and then using a mobile phone video editing software to edit and then produce the video. But today was different. I had already shot a couple of clips of an event last week. I had wanted to edit it on my mobile phone but I knew I had to try something different.

So today, I begin editing on Adobe Premier Pro. I think sometimes when beginners look at the panels on the editing plane, they kind of freak out. Where do I start? Which button do I press? Where do I click to upload why video clips? Those are questions that any video editor asks. I had the same feeling too. But the plan on self learning has always been to go to Youtube to learn from others. Thats the wonderful thing about YouTube. You can type the subject or the specific instruction and believe me, there is always someone out there who has covered it and has shared his/her knowledge through a video on the Youtube site.

So since lunch time today till this evening, I have been constantly swapping screens with YouTube and Adobe Premier Pro. I’m learning so much. Through this process, I have identified some mistakes that I have done when shooting like making sure my video shooting mode and photo shooting mode are the same. Or that sound and lighting still are important aspects of shooting because it will really help you when you are editing video and sound clips as well.

This is the panel on the editing plane of the Adobe Premier Pro dashboard.
This is what the editing dashboard on the Adobe Premier Pro looks like. As you can see, I am editing a short video using this software.

So Im hoping I complete the story and can share it online on my YouTube Channel. See you later.
