Adobe Premiere Pro

Premiere Pro is especially helpful for those with a basic knowledge of video creation, who want to make professional grade video content without having to rely on an agency. As someone who does marketing for the companies I work for, as well as occasionally freelancing, I find that Premiere Pro really fits my needs nicely. I wouldn't necessarily suggest it for someone just starting out in editing, at least not without some additional learning first.

Filmora

Filmora is great for a beginner and is easy to use. I found the interface very intuitive and was exporting my first video in about 30 minutes. I would recommend this to people who are new to video editing and don't need the capabilities and features of a professional package such as Adobe Premier. Although Wondershare has recently released a Filmora Pro version I have not tried it yet.

Pros

  • The seamless integration with After Effects makes it simple to import After effects projects directly to your project library.
  • I really like the ability to edit audio directly, either through an integration with Audition or directly in Premiere Pro.
  • The export features make it easy to export your sequences or project to any format you need.

Cons

  • Creative Cloud Subscription Service — Premiere is part of the Adobe Creative Cloud subscription service. This means that software is not a one-time purchase, but rather part of on-going pay-to-play. Adobe does not offer the ability to purchase software per version which can frustrate users who are not worried about regular updates and would rather make a single software purchase and have access to it for life.
  • Learning Curve — Due to its large selection of tools, utilities, and menus, Premiere can be difficult to just "jump in" and use without prior video editing software experience. Basic production editing can be learned quickly with additional resources (such as YouTube or training courses), but more in-depth functions may take users time to learn to access and use efficiently. Adobe provides some learning resources, but additional free training as part of the Creative Cloud would be beneficial.
  • Additional Preset Templates — Adobe Premiere implemented new templates for lower-thirds, titles, and other graphics in a recent update. However, there are only a select few templates to choose from for each category. It would be nice to have additional templates added in a future update for individuals looking to quickly create without manually creating each aspect of the production.

  • The online store can be a little clunky, sometimes requiring me to login two or three times. After a successful login, everything works fine.
  • Occasionally the transitions don't export into the video correctly, usually by not being in the correct place in the video. I always check my exported video before closing out my project.
  • I didn't find any audio files included in the standard offering or from the online store.

Everything I have tried to do was easy to figure out. The export and online store where you get additional titles, etc. have very minor issues, correct those and it's a solid 10.

Alternatives Considered

I used to use Final Cut Pro. But shortly after Final Cut Pro X came out, I switched to Premiere Pro. Mainly because I graduated college and used Windows PCs instead of using the Macs available to me in college. However, I quickly got comfortable in Premiere and found that I liked it way more than Final Cut Pro X. Both have their special features but I feel that Premiere is more accepted in the video editing industry and has more robust features

I had very limited time to spend with a Premiere Pro trial and didn't manage to accomplish much in that time. It is a very capable and professional program but leaves an amateur editor pretty bewildered. It was easy enough to add media and trim out unnecessary footage, but adding titles and transitions seemed much more complicated. These were no problem once I tried Filmora.

Return on Investment

  • Premiere has had a positive impact, for sure, on our overall business objectives.
  • It has been helpful to provide more avenues of training our associates.
  • It is well worth the cost of a monthly Adobe CC membership to be able to use it when we need it.

  • I am not in the video editing business, however sharing examples of my work with clients has started conversations about making and editing videos for them.
