How to Get Started Editing Video in Premiere Pro CC

If you want to get more out of your DSLR or mirrorless camera’s video shooting capabilities, you need to learn how to edit that video. Making the transition from photo editing to video editing can be a jarring move.

There may be better and more efficient methods to use some of the things he shows, but it is a good starting point. If you talk to 10 different editors, you’ll get 10 different opinions on editing techniques and workflow.
