Adobe Premier Pro CC

Adobe Premier Pro CC is probably the most advanced video-editing software in the world. If you need to put a movie together from a variety of clips, and then add sound – music, or a voice-over – it's seriously easy. it's a 'non-linear' editing tool, so you can adjust anything at any time:

 

Add special effects, transitions between clips, 'B-roll' material and more.

 

Edit the color of entire clips or just parts of them. Edit sound, either in the Timeline or using clip and track mixers. Finally, output (either in Premiere Pro itself or Adobe Media Converter) for any video format from Social Media to Broadcast.

Tunnel Vision Ltd offers Adobe Premiere Pro CC courses from beginner to expert. See our course outlines, below.

We also have training videos available – please check out our Video Tutorials page. If you like what you see, the whole course can be found online at: Udemy, Skillshare, CyberU or TabletWise.
