Online video creation tools like Biteable and Powtoon are fun and easy, but VERY limited in what you can do. Using one is a good way to be creative and have fun, but if you want control over your project and want a much wider variety of tools & possibilities, you’re going to need to use a different tool.
You may be familiar with applications like iMovie and Windows Movie Maker, but again, those are pretty limited. We’ll jump right to one of the most widely used and respected video editors in the world, Adobe Premiere Pro.
Premiere Pro probably isn’t in your taskbar at the bottom of the screen yet. You’ll have to go to the search bar and type in Premiere (or look inside the Windows menu and find the app.
Once Premiere is in your task bar at the bottom of the screen, right click on it and choose “Pin to taskbar” so that it’s there for you next time. You’ll need this program a lot!
If you were lucky enough to be in my class last year and already tried this tutorial, DO IT AGAIN! You think you’re some kind of expert or something? it’s a good refresher and you might even pick up on some things that you missed last time.
Work through the videos a bit at a time. Watch a minute or two of the video, pause it, and then go do what it shows you. Once you’ve completed the action, come back and watch a little more and so on. DO NOT WATCH THE WHOLE VIDEO AT ONCE! You’ll never remember anything!
You DO NOT need to drop off the finished product, just show it to me when you’re done!
