Adobe Premiere Pro is an application for video editing. It has an array of tools designed to allow its user to edit videos in a sophisticated manner. It can be used for both quick editing jobs, and more in-depth projects.
Unlike its Windows counterpart, the Mac version of Premiere Pro is unable to work with the WMV, ASF, ICO or PREL file formats. Beyond this, however, it is compatible with all widely-used video, image and sound formats. A Mac user who avoids the Windows-only formats should have little or no trouble with compatibility.
Yes. Many smaller-scale filmmakers and studios use Adobe Premiere Pro to edit professional film and television productions. The popular 2014 film Gone Girl, for example, was cut and edited entirely in Adobe Premiere Pro.
Adobe After Effects is used mainly for altering videos directly thorough the use of effects and other additions, rather than cutting and editing. Adobe Premiere Pro has fewer tools for creating effects, but is more powerful as an editing application. The two applications work well when used in conjunction.
Adobe Premiere Elements is a scaled-down version of Adobe Premiere Pro which contains fewer features but is available at a much lower price. It is best suited to novices or general users who want a budget option for editing videos.
Motion graphics templates offer a quick and simple method of adding eye-catching effects to an Adobe Premiere project. They come in many forms, and can be modified to fit the project. A typical usage of a motion graphics template is to add an animated opening card with customised text.
The latest version of Premiere Pro includes support for Variable Frame Rate, increased compatibility with video formats, more sophisticated font styling, the ability to adapt an existing project into a shared project alias, and more. It also includes a range of bug fixes.
Yes. Although earlier versions of the Adobe CC suite had compatibility issues with the MacBook Pro Retina, the current version is fully compatible.
The Essential Graphics Panel is a tool that allows the user to create graphics for their projects using elements such as shapes, text, and video. It is particularly useful for creating title cards or credit sequences.
This depends largely on how you hope to distribute your finished video, as DVD, big screen, television and online distribution will require different considerations. these days, a typical user will be uploading their video to YouTube or similar websites, in which case the best export settings will be a Quicktime container, the h.264 video condec, and quality at 100%.
