Tutorial02: Explore Premiere Pro panels

For this tutorial, you will be watching all the videos at http://url.cailab.net/b0 and turning in one video demonstrating your mastery of the skills presented in all tutorial videos.

First you will need to download and extract the following file from the Adobe site. This file includes all the practice files you'll need for this tutorial: https://learndownload.adobe.com/pub/learn/premiere/work-explore-panels.zip

Video 1: Work with the Project panel

  1. What the first video titled Work with the Project panel at http://url.cailab.net/b0
  2. Open the file 02_01 Working with the Project panel.prproj that you unzipped earlier and explore the functions and tools demonstrated in the video you watched.
  3. Practice all the tools and functions reviewed in the video, including:
    • You can organize items in the Project panel into bins.
    • Not all items in the Project panel have to be used in a sequence.
    • Switch between viewing information about clips and viewing interactive thumbnails by clicking the List or Icon button at the bottom left of the Project panel.
    • List view displays information in columns about each item, such as frame rate, media duration, and so on. Click a column heading to sort the clips by that heading.
    • Type in the search field to display only clips that match your search term.
    • Assessment and deliverables: In class: You will demonstrate your understanding of the target functions in class. On-line: You will complete a Google Form

Video 2: Source and Program monitors

  1. What the second video titled Source and Program monitors at http://url.cailab.net/b0
  2. Open the file 02_02 Source and Program monitors.prproj that you downloaded earlier and play around with the functions and tools demonstrated in the video you watched.
  3. Practice all the tools and functions reviewed in the video, including:
    • Use the Source Monitor to preview clips before inserting them in a sequence. To play and pause playback use the playback controls, or press the Spacebar. You can also quickly drag (scrub) the blue playhead (current time indicator) at the bottom of the monitor to the section of the clip you want to play. Click the Mark In and Mark Out buttons to select a specific part of the source clip you want to add to the sequence.
    • Use the Program Monitor to play your sequence. The Program Monitor playhead is synchronized with the playhead in the Timeline panel.
    • Assessment and deliverables: In class: You will demonstrate your understanding of the target functions in class. On-line: You will complete a Google Form

Video 3: Explore the Timeline panel

  1. What the third video titled Explore the Timeline panel at http://url.cailab.net/b0
  2. Open the file 02_03 Explore the Timeline panel.prproj that you downloaded earlier and play around with the functions and tools demonstrated in the video you watched.
  3. Practice all the tools and functions reviewed in the video, including:
    • Time moves from left to right in the Timeline. Wherever the blue playhead is placed, you will see that frame in the Program Monitor.
    • You can place clips on separate video and audio tracks. Video tracks play as a stack, so a clip on an upper video track will appear in front of a clip on a lower video track when you play the sequence in the Program Monitor. Audio tracks play together, so you can create a soundtrack mix by positioning multiple audio clips on different tracks.
    • You can enable and disable individual tracks when you want to work on a particular part of your sequence.
    • Selection is important in the Timeline panel, so if things aren’t working out as expected, double-check that you have the right clip selected.
    • There are several tools to use in the Timeline and Program Monitor panels, but you will generally use the Selection tool, which is at the top of the Tools panel.
  4. Rearrange some of the clips in video. Export your video to Explore_Timeline_Myname.mp4 and upload to the Google Classroom
