“Editing and Encoding: What to do with those video files!

“In the next chapter of our DSLR video course we’ll go over transferring those files off of your camera, into an editing program, and exporting out a completed video. We will use Premiere Pro CC and Adobe Media Encoder to go over basic editing techniques, basic coloring, and encoding file types. Feel free to bring your laptop and go though the process on hand if you have an Adobe subscription, but most of what will be covered is also applicable to other editing programs. Keeping in line with the previous DSLR class, everything will be kept simple and easy, making your own videos does not need o be a complicated and lengthy process, with a few simple tricks you can import, edit and export out a completed video in 15 minutes. So bring your cameras, bring your laptops or just bring a notebook, and let’s finally get those video files out there for everyone to see!”
