Overall Satisfaction with Adobe Premiere Pro

Adobe Premiere Pro is used across the entirety of our university by students, staff, and faculty alike. Students and faculty in programs such as Film Studies or Video Production use Premiere to create video projects as part of course assignments. Staff in departments such as Marketing, Communications, and our department of Online Learning use Premiere consistently to create content for consumption both within the university as well as outside it. While the program may seem complicated at first glance, Premiere allows these users to create engaging video content if they dedicate time to learning the tool.
  • Premiere can handle almost any type of codec and can manage source clips with different codecs all in the same sequence. Other NLEs sometimes struggle with this.
  • Premiere can dynamically link with other products in the Adobe Suite, such as After Effects and Audition. This allows the user to make changes in those programs that then get automatically reflected back into Premiere.
  • Premiere's user base has established a strong community online, with many people developing additional toolsets that can be imported into Premiere to even further flesh out its already robust feature set.
  • The biggest drawback for Premiere is not unique to it, but is something that affects all products in the Adobe Creative Suite: the user must maintain a subscription to the service to continue using it. You cannot just "buy Premiere" and then have it forever. Subscription-based models for revenue are not customer-friendly.
  • While the developers have made great strides in this area, Premiere's text tool still needs significant work. Using the tool with a large amount of text causes the program to lag or sometimes crash.
  • Ease of use.
  • Reliable, fast, and responsive timeline.
  • Integration with other Adobe products.
  • Organization toolset.
  • (Negative) Very expensive to maintain a campus-wide license. Our IT services department is strongly considering dropping support and pushing the cost to departments.

Premiere Pro is a very versatile product capable of handling projects regardless of their complexity. I find it particularly easy to iterate projects within the program which allows me to quickly take older projects and repurpose them for a new use. Collaboration within the Adobe Creative Suite is also a strength here, as it allows multiple people to work together on a project and have all of the content come back into Premiere seamlessly.
