This is an introductory course. You should have a basic knowledge of your operating system as well as well as being able to discover and use appropriate resources on the Internet.
This will require an Adobe account. Adobe Premiere Pro will be used to create videos during the course, Adobe After Effects will be briefly introduced to integrate into the editing workflow and Vimeo will be used for hosting. Please setup a free Vimeo account. We advise you to have all accounts and software setup and loaded prior the start of the course. If you have access to Premiere Elements and not Premiere Pro, or CS6 instead of Creative Cloud you will still be able to complete the course, but the interfaces might be slightly different than the tutorials and demonstrations. We will also look at incorporating Adobe’s companion app Adobe Premiere Clip.
