Class Description

I don't give the highest ratings unless they're earned. This class could not have been better. Navin was well prepared, and the pace was excellent. The facility and and equipment were also top notch. I am pleased that I have the option to retake (audit) the course for a year but I feel that the material was presented in a way that made it easily retainable.

Learn to edit your footage in Adobe's leading video editing software for professionals. With this incredibly powerful but intuitive program, you'll add transitions, effects, titles, and audio. Then take it to the next level by sweetening and mixing the sound, compositing your footage, adjusting color, keyframing, editing footage shot with multiple cameras and exporting to a variety of devices. You'll also discover how to streamline your workflow process utilizing other Adobe Creative Suite products such as Photoshop and After Effects.

Students should bring headphones (with a standard stereo minijack) so they may better hear their own audio.
