Lesson 4. Basic Editing

Lesson 4. Basic Editing

Premiere Elements allows you to rearrange, delete, and shorten your movie clips. You will learn how to use basic tools in Premiere Elements; including the Selection tool, the Razor tool, and the Time Stretch tool, to create a finished scene.

In this lesson, you'll learn how to take uncut footage as imported from a DV camera and shape it into a refined final version. You'll use these basic editing techniques:

  • Rearranging clips in the timeline.

  • Trimming clips.

  • Inserting and Overwriting clips.

  • Importing clips from another project.

  • Fine-tuning clips.

Over the course of this tour you will work on a one-minute short home movie. You'll be working with video and audio clips provided on the DVD-ROM included with this Adobe Premiere Elements Classroom in a Book. If you were actually producing this project, you would be importing the video from a digital video camera using the Capture function.

For more information on capturing video and audio, see the earlier chapter, “The World of Digital Video,” on page 7.
