Adobe Premiere Pro is used to learn the fundamentals of video editing and compressing techniques critical for effective digital video production. Key features include setting up interface, capturing, editing and adding video transitions and effects leading to exporting projects for different file formats.
Adobe Premiere Pro is a timeline-based non-linear video editing software application that handles the post-production editing of digital video. Students will produce professional quality videos for a variety of topics that may include: advertising, digital storytelling, documentary, marketing and promotional material for TV, web, digital display, and DVD. Topics include importing media, working with clips and tracks, editing in the timeline, adding titles and transitions, moving, adjusting and animating motion and effects, and other intermediate editing techniques.
Students will use these tools to organize and deliver a high quality project using Adobe Media Encoder.

Recommendations and Requirements
Courses are 30 hours and are scheduled to be completed in either 5 weeks or 10 weeks. Generally, 5 week courses have two classes per week, and 10 week courses have one class per week.
Courses may be delivered in class, online, or blended (both in class and online). All delivery formats will use Desire2Learn (D2L) and Adobe Connect Meeting (ACM) tools to varying degrees and it is the students responsibility to ensure they are comfortable with these tools prior to the start of the first class.
Students are encouraged to read Student Online Learning Resources to determine the delivery format that will best meet their learning needs.
- Students familiar with D2L and ACM from previous course work, require no further introduction to these learning tools.
- Students who register into an in class only course section and who are unfamiliar with D2L and ACM learning tools are recommended to take the necessary time to fully explore these learning tools prior to the start of class.
- Students who register into an online or blended course section and who are unfamiliar with D2L and ACM learning tools are recommended to take BMC 352 Learning Online.
For online and blended delivery, students should have access to their own computer with required software, Internet connection, a headset with speakers and microphone, webcam, and a monitor large enough to display multiple applications (or the use of two monitors). Students should test their environment prior to the start of class to ensure everything is working properly.
Students will need access to software outside the classroom lab to enable work on assignments, projects, and other course work.
- The software used in this course is Adobe Premier Pro CC which may be downloaded from Adobe.
- If necessary, additional requirements will be announced at the start of the course.
It is strongly recommended that students attend every class. It is the responsibility of the student to communicate potential absenteeism to the instructor.
