The great thing about Premiere Pro is that it's easy to use if you're a beginner or if you're a pro. The process of using the program is simple and laid out in a way that helps you stay in your mental creative process without having to overthink what you're trying to do and where to find settings, etc. If you're relying on your GPU to do the brunt of the processing work then you're pretty much out of luck since Premiere is CPU intensive and there are currently no signs of that changing any time soon. Many folks switch to other editing software for this reason but as mentioned earlier, if you have a powerful CPU then you'll be okay. I have the 7960X 16 core, 32 thread and I can playback 4K pretty well.

I'm by no means a seasoned pro with Adobe Premiere Pro, but for me it's feature-rich and fairly straightforward to use quickly. Speed of editing is the biggest thing I care about because when you're working with video and tweaking, you can easily burn many hours that aren't really billable. Ultimately your customer doesn't want to pay you to learn - they want to pay for your expertise and skills.

That being said there's no law that says you can't give away work you like while learning the ropes and then charge later once you've gotten your feet wet and built some confidence.

I think PP works great for editing video and even audio. They have made some nice improvements over the years but also took away some features (variety of media export choices). It is flexible and reasonably easy to edit pretty complex video content. Especially where changes are almost inevitable. It is my (only) but go-to program. The more I work with it and in it, the better and faster I am in editing video. I think there is so much more it can do, but I just have not learned yet.

Adobe Premiere Pro is great for full suite editing. It can be used for everything from commercials to social media content to full-length films. We utilize it for all of the above. It can be overly complicated for basic, quick edits that do not need color correction, fancy transitions, and other creative stylings.

Adobe Premiere Pro is very suitable for just about every type of post-production project. It is the standard in the industry and very well supported, updated, and provides more than enough features and flexibility to edit based on your personal preferences as an editor. It is not my favorite editor to use in recent years, but it has come a long way still.

Adobe Premiere Pro is great for making seamless professional videos. It is rather difficult in the beginning for someone who has never made videos. There are programs out there like Vyond that are actually for beginners who can't make videos on their own yet. With some training, and spending time in Adobe though, you can master professional videos for your organization or even for personal use! Great for any freelancer as well!

Adobe Premiere Pro really worked for me. I'm a video producer who works with multiple other producers in other states, with other computers. Being able to have maximum compatibility between the OS systems (Mac and PC) as well as the option to rent the software once but have multiple installs really worked for us. Maybe if everyone is in one place and all use Macs, using Final Cut Pro would be better since it's more built for Mac (but it's a small distinction).

I would recommend Premiere to anyone looking to get into professional editing. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone looking for a program to make simple edits though - there are plenty of even free options now, apart from products like Premiere Rush and iMovie. There's undoubtedly a debate between Premiere Pro, Final Cut Pro, and Avid, but the Adobe ecosystem and the way all the CC apps are integrated with each other offers a compelling argument to use Premiere Pro for a majority of digital video work. But my true recommendation is for people to try all three and decide which has the workflow best suited for their particular needs. Premiere happens to fulfill all my needs, and though there are specific functions where FCP or Avid shines that Premiere doesn't, I've "compromised" by accepting those lackluster parts of Premiere in favor of the fact that I am much more fluent in Premiere and can do my work best using that program.

I love Adobe Premiere Pro for quick video edits or longer cuts that require smoother transitions. If you need to do anything video related, this should be your Adobe program of choice. It isn't well suited for creating things like vector graphics, but that should be obvious.

Premiere Pro is very well suited for any video editing project (both major and minor). It's useful for removing unwanted video/audio, cutting together two or more video tracks with the same audio (particular in the multicam feature), or even with different audio. You can do anything in Premiere from making a movie to simply top and tailing a video clip so that it fades in from black and fates out to black.

We use Adobe Premiere Pro in a professional, post-production department. Yes, there are stability issues but overall it's a good experience. It's also more cost-effective than other systems like Avid.

Well, Adobe Premiere Pro is all about video editing. I've dabbled with Avid (5+ years ago) and some less-intensive programs. Premiere Pro seems to be able to handle any and all projects. My uses have been fairly low-key: editing sketches together for entertainment and company luncheon; editing clips of employees receiving awards, etc. It's become part of my job, but not necessarily an essential part, and Premiere Pro has performed admirably. In my limited experience, it does allow certain things that the less-intensive programs do not (such as assimilating video from different eras, devices, qualities, etc.).

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.

I will always recommend Premiere Pro to a colleague that is serious about video editing and has a strong technical background, or is willing to put in the time to learn. Because of the ongoing license, they should also be in need of the software for more than a single project. There are other options out there if none of these are applicable to them.

Premiere Pro can be as simple or complex as you require. Depending on the scale of your project, Premiere can handle anything you throw at it - you just need the hard drive space to accommodate this.

I wish Premiere Pro had more conversion functionality - being able to capture a YouTube video or any video for that matter, and turning it into an MP4 file that you can import into Premiere Pro. I have to rely on 3rd party software to retrieve files from web videos.

This software is well suited for most modern-day professionals to home-based video production. Mainly for individuals such as myself who are promoting their business via social media and can benefit greatly from video exposure. I would say it would be less appropriate for someone looking for animation design or intricate effect-design.

Adobe Premiere Pro is well suited for creating in-depth commercials. Using alternatives like an iMovie or iPhone movie editor or free software limits the types of effects, transitions and features. The best part is that using this type of software really lets you take simple footage and concepts and make it into a professional movie, commercial or edited video. When creating YouTube channels or Instagram videos for students, being able to have students use real editing software to post to their pages really improves the quality of their work. Additionally, on a student's resume, being able to list professional software absolutely increases the marketability of the students.

Less appropriate would be when you need a really fast video with simple text. Premiere is a bit complex, and if you need something really fast and simple you can just crop or edit videos on your phone or on social media platforms.

It is well suited for short videos of any content type, testimonials, and voice-overs for a task or PR of a product or service. Adding audio to a basic Powerpoint presentation in a more engaging and attention-getting way. Short training tutorials that can be shared around an organization. Completing school projects where video evidence is needed or beneficial e.g. an outcome of an experiment.

Adobe Premiere is best suited for high-level/commercial video editing and post-production enhancement. While you could certainly use it for videos shot on a phone or handy cam, it would be a bit of overkill. That type of stuff could easily be done in iMovie or Window Media Maker etc.

Adobe Premiere is really not appropriate for screen-top or lecture capture (powerpoint or excel walkthrus). Again, it can technically do the job, but you would be better off using something like Camtasia or Google loom, especially if the user is not professionally trained or highly tech-savvy.

If you want to make a good video, with a great design that will help you surprise the public, this program will help you, because it has a lot of plug-ins and tools that, practically, will do the work for you.

Now, we repeat the above: This program is not necessary if you want to make a video with a simple design. It has many tools to waste in a simple video.

It is suitable for any digital media, audio and video productions. Videos created can be incorporated in presentations to enhance an idea or a program. It may be less appropriate in situations where visuals are not important in learning.

I find it the best tool for cuting digital videos. Especialy for begginers. You can achieve realy pro results with low knowledge. The basic tools are really intuitive and easy to use. It has specific export settings for Vimeo, YouTube an mobile. It is less appropriate for crating effects. The best tool for this is to work in parallel with Adobe After Effects.

Great for people with a decent knowledge of video editing who already understand the basics, but it's not quite as well-suited for those who may be beginners. I have used Premiere Pro for projects ranging from 30 seconds long to an hour plus. It handles anything I can throw at it. But (aside from simple resizing or exporting a clip to a different format) almost anything I do in Premiere Pro takes a decent amount of setup.
