What are my chances of being successful in a short time with Adobe Premiere 6 ? I have access to the product, educational version, through the school I teach in. I am currently using Studio 9 Plus and am proficient with it but have disappointments with end results at times. I have an external Memorex Dual Format DVD burner 16x. I am currently involved in a big project involving many interviews and spend eons of time with exacting "L" and "J" cuts. There has to be a more proficeint way of leaving audio and replacing talking heads with photos.
I'm scared to try and learn Adobe while in the midst of a project.
Thanks so much!
YOu're in tough spot, becuase your going to invest time learning an NLE that is now defunct. Premeire Pro was version 7, and with it came an all new interface - plus outstanding new features and performance. We are now on Premeire Pro 1.5.
You can perform J and L cuts on Premiere Pro with the greatest of ease- Premiere was the first (and only) editing program I ever used, and I picked up basic J and l cutting techniques within the first hour I reckon.
The program really isn't as complicated as many believe- as long as you take it one step at a time and don't try to swallow everything at once.
