What do I do with all this video footage I shot? Where do I start? How do I add music to my videos? Export my project for YouTube, Facebook...there are so many export options, which one do I choose? Not sure where to start...this course is for you!
In this course, we introduce beginner concepts and techniques for non-linear video editing. Targeted at beginning videographers and editors, this course covers how to work with your video footage, create sequences, work with sequences on a timeline, add transitions, add or modify audio and export your clip for viewing. In this course we will use Adobe Premiere Pro for editing but the basic concepts can be applied in any editing program.

A good pre-requisite for this course is the Basic Video Course here at Precision Camera and Video. This course is for those who want to learn the basics of editing video from RAW footage to exporting a simple completed project.
