I feel lucky to have friends who are much bet­ter with video than I am. Many of them use Avid and/​or Final Cut Pro to work their magic, so I was excited to review Maxim Jago’s new course Pre­miere Pro CS6 for Avid and Final Cut Pro Edi­tors.

In this course film­maker, trainer, and author Maxim Jago presents a quick, easy-​​to-​​use guide for edi­tors who want to make the tran­si­tion from Avid Media Com­poser or Final Cut Pro to Adobe Pre­miere Pro, or even to round-​​trip back and forth between appli­ca­tions. You’ll learn Pre­miere Pro fun­da­men­tals like cre­at­ing and man­ag­ing projects and work­ing with sequences, effects, titles, meta­data, and audio. You’ll also be intro­duced to new fea­tures in Pre­miere Pro CS6 like dynamic trim­ming, the Warp Sta­bi­lizer, and Rolling Shut­ter Repair, and see how eas­ily Pre­miere Pro inte­grates with other appli­ca­tions in the Adobe Cre­ative Suite.

In this free les­son, you’ll learn how to use Ultra Key — Pre­miere Pro’s chro­makey effect — to cre­ate great com­pos­ite video with your green screen sequences. Maxim shows you how to use this pow­er­ful tool and even shares a cou­ple of workaround tips for when things don’t go as planned. Watch and learn!

    Nice tech­niques. I am an Adobe user from way back and have used pre­miere (as well as final cut). Love the ultra key plu­gin (key­light also works great in after effects). Looks like a great Pre­miere Tuto­r­ial series.
