First steps in Adobe Premiere CS5

For the people who are using the Adobe Premiere CS5 movie editing program for the very first time.

 
  Author: TheDude | Version: CS5 | 16th November 2011 |  
 
 
1.
 

Open Adobe Premiere CS5 and click New Project.

 
 
2.
 

Name your project and click OK.

 
 
3.
 

Click DV - NTSC and choose Standard 48kHz.

This settings have a certain meaning but for the very first lesson I won't be bothering you with dry facts and infos.

Click OK.

 
 
4.
 

Now let's bring your clip in.

In the menu click File and choose Import (Ctrl + I for the keyboard shortcut).

All the major video formats are supported so you shouldn't have trouble importing it.

Select your clip and click OK.

 
 
5.
 

Your clip is now under your project.

Click and hold it ...

 
 
6.
 

... then drag it to Video 1 Timeline (see picture).

 
 
7.
 

This is how it looks like after you drag and drop it.

The sound in your clip has been automatically imported as well (Audio 1).

 
 
8.
 

You can play, stop, rewind etc your clip in the Program window.

Let's just save your video and end this very first lesson as we don't want to complicate things at this point.

 
 
9.
 

In the menu click File, Export and choose Media (Ctrl + M for the keyboard shortcut).

Choose Microsoft AVI Format and click Sequence01_1.avi to rename your movie.


 
 
10.
 

Choose the location where you want to save your movie, rename it and click Save.

 
 
11.
 

All you need to do now is click Export.

 
 
12.
 

Adobe Premiere is now Encoding your movie.

Encoding time depends on the length of your movie and on a bunch of settings, but as said before, we'll leave those things for future lessons.

 
 
13.
 

When done encoding, just look for your movie.

It should be in the folder you chose in Step 10.
