In an engaging broadcast, Adobe employees representing Premiere Pro, After Effects and Audition, demoed some of the new features in the CC 2015.1 update. Watch the replay here. Hopefully there will be more Blabbing in the future!

Premiere Pro Tutorials

Tired of watching Lord of the Rings extended editions? Try this instead. If not the greatest Premiere Pro tutorial, it's certainly the longest. (I'll admit, at the time of this writing, I'm still working my way through this opus. But so far it's really incredible!) Taran Van Hemert takes viewers through an editing project from start to finish with full commentary. Along with editing workflow tips, Taran also includes a lot of helpful information about screen recording and creating custom keyboard shortcuts. 

Jordy Vandeput, founder and instructor of Cinecom, shared this video tutorial on 5 Hidden Features in Premiere Pro. Jordy's tutorials are always a pleasure to watch, not just because they are extraordinarily helpful, but because they also have great production value. You might know all of these hidden Premiere Pro features, you might not. There's only one way to find out!

After sharing a post on Organizing Docs for Premiere Prodocumentary editor and producer, Shirley Thompson comes back with Moving a Doc from FCP to Premiere Pro. Like many Final Cut Pro editors, Shirley wanted to switch to an editing software that was  (and is!) "current and supported." In this post, Shirley shows how to migrate a long form editing project from Final Cut Pro to Premiere Pro. If this is not applicable to you, keep this post in mind to share with editor friends who are considering making the switch midway through an edit. Shirley offers a real-life example of how it can be done.

Does Premiere Pro's export settings have you stumped? Jay of JayzTwoCents explains what you need to know about getting your video masterpiece out of Premiere Pro and lookin' good.

Digimedia Dude's channel is filled with interesting tech videos and tutorials that will "turn you into a tech geek".
