Was quickly able to put together some videos in Premiere Pro CC using this course. Just the right amount to get started.
I found this course very helpful and I was able to start using the application very quickly. The course covers what you need to know to start editing with Premiere. My one comment would be that I already have some experience with editing and After Effects, so I think that Dave Basulto might have explained some editing terms for beginners (Ripple Edit, bins, etc) but I think its pretty self explanatory in the end.
Although I have been using premiere pro for many years I decided to take this course to get to know the new stuff and see if there was other info I had missed along my editing journey. I was right on both accounts it was good to learn the new stuff and there was things I either forgotten or was just not taught in the first place. So next I would like to see an intermediate course to further brush up my skills and knowledge and then an advanced one. Well done Dave, money well spent and I enjoyed the experience.
