Hi Geekzone,

 

I am looking to get into video editing mainly for a hobby; unfortunately, I am WAY past my 20s so I will be using Digital Tutors for the basics training and go from there.

 

I just want to check on the software that I am planning to use, Premier Pro, will that be sufficient? Would like to get into after effect in a few months as well.

My main source of videos will be my phone and some streaming that I will edit before uploading on youtube.

Anyone know of courses in Wellington would love to go!

 

Regards,

Just be warned premier pro is very Confusing. You will need a good tutor. It's like trying to relearn grammar the Chinese way and write backwards while being spoken to in Arabic.

Alternative then? Only doing it cause Digital tutors has tutorials for it. I learned Zbrush on DT and it was a great way to learn the software.

No harm trying. Just warning you so you go in expecting to learn a different language then it should be ok. I have no tutor no real drive. I'm a stills person.

Premiere is confusing (in my opinion) IF you are coming from something else.  

The obvious starting point is windows movie maker or iMovie, but after that Premiere is one of the industry standards, so it's not a bad choice to learn on

Like photoshop though, a lot of initial learning is simply about finding your way around, even before you get into the nitty gritty of the concepts and capabilities.

All the best :)

The great thing is, just like Photoshop, there are tonnes of free websites/videos on how to use it. I've fumbled my way through Preimire a few times, and as long as I have a google window open beside, never have too many problems.
