This course will take a look at Adobe Premiere Pro 2017; digging into many of the features that Adobe has added to this non-linear editing tool since we last looked at Premiere with the 2014 release in PRM204. We take an in-depth look at several of the biggest features that have been integrated into Premiere Pro in the last several years while also going over some of the smaller tools, features, preferences and interface enhancements.

If you're new to Adobe Premiere Pro CC, it is recommended you first take PRM204 as there are many techniques that have changed very little from Premiere Pro CC 2014 to 2017. The 204 course digs much deeper into many different editing, effects, audio and output options that are still relevant in Premiere Pro 2017.

Class Listing

Class 1

This class will take us through many of the newest features of Adobe Premiere Pro 2017 including a look at the updated interface, the new visual keyboard mapping tool, mulitcamera editing enhancements, Adobe Stock and using the new Libraries feature as well as a quick look at some of the smaller features. Editorial techniques covered in this lesson includes the use of Search Bins and the Source Monitor Timeline.

Class 2

This lesson is all about the Proxy workflow that is now built into Adobe Premiere Pro. This includes setting up custom proxy presets using Adobe Media Encoder, attaching, switching and editing with lower resolution proxy edit files. We'll also move outside of the Adobe universe and create proxy files with a third party encoding application.

Class 3

Lumetri is the term for the new color correction and color grading workflow tools in Adobe Premiere Pro CC 2017. Many of the color tools that are in Adobe Speedgrade have been ported to Premiere Pro. Well look at the different part of the Lumetri color panel including the creative tools, curves, the 3-way color correction and the much improved video scopes. Secondary color correction was also added to a recent version of Premiere. Finally we'll take a look at the new Tangent control surface support with a demonstration of the Tangent Ripple.

Class 4

Virtual Reality editing is now possible in Adobe Premiere Pro 2017. This lesson will look at some of the new ingest functions in Premiere as well as how to identify, view, edit and encode 360 VR media.

Class 5

Audio has seen big updates in recent versions of Premiere as well. A number of new audio filters have been incorporated from Adobe Audition. This class will look at how to identify those as well as the new Direct Link between Premiere Pro and Audition. Once in Audition we'll work with the new Essential Sound Panel to make mixing easier as well as the "Adobe magic" that is the REMIX.
