Adobe Premiere Pro Level 2: Intermediate

Experienced users of Adobe Premiere Pro, are you ready to learn how to take your video editing and production to the next level? Learn how to use Premiere Pro’s built-in motion graphics effects to add lower thirds, transitions, and graphics to your project. As a critical part of any video, we’ll also discuss how to repair, enhance, and clarify audio. You can make your footage pop by integrating video effects and modifying some of the most common ones to fit your needs. Your project will shine once you learn to use Lumetri scopes, professional-quality color grading and color correction tools that are easy to use, even if you are new to color grading.

Premiere Pro’s tools also help you create video composites—graphics sequences that combine images, text, backgrounds, and video clips—that utilize alpha channels, transparency, and masks. Titles are an important part of any video, and we’ll discuss how to create titles using shapes, typography, and text effects. You will learn how to make your video more accessible with open and closed captions. Plus, we will discuss tips and tricks for a more effective and professional workflow. The course wraps up with information about how next-generation video technologies like immersive video and VR are managed in Premiere Pro.
