Premiere Pro is the industry-leading video editing software for film, TV, and the web. You can edit footage, audio, and graphics as well as easily integrate files from Adobe stock. If you are working in Adobe Audition or After Effects you can easily link compositions from those programs into your Premiere project.
- Price: Part of Adobe Creative Cloud subscription – 7 day free trial, a monthly fee after that. There is a discount for students

- Recommended for: Advanced users – like many Adobe applications this program has a learning curve and may feel complicated at first.
Things to Know
Premiere is organized by using “windows”. The tab you are on will dictate how the windows look in the program. Oftentimes the windows have multiple tabs in themselves, which allows the user to access certain things easily. If you have a lot of material on your timeline you can mark the “in” and “out” points; this tells Premiere you only want to export what is in between those points. One important thing to note is that when exporting a project, you will only be able to export when you are in the “timeline” window.
