Overall Satisfaction with Adobe Premiere Pro

Our Video Department uses Adobe Premiere Pro for all of our online video needs. Whether it be online classes, marketing[,] and social media videos- Adobe Premiere Pro is used to create them all. I have also used Adobe Premiere Pro at previous production jobs and continue to use it on personal projects and freelancing gigs.
  • Compatible with After Effects, Photoshop, and Illustrator
  • Keyboard shortcuts that can mirror competitor software
  • Fast rendering and ability to customize your layouts
  • I tend to run into crash issues at least a few times a month
  • The production component needs some work
  • The essential graphics panel is nice but could allow for more customizations
  • Compatibility with other softwares
  • Ability to hold large files and projects
  • Simple text and minor graphics can be done easily inside the essential graphics panel
  • Positive because we are able to crank out videos on a weekly basis
  • The ability to share projects within Production allows for more aligned videos
  • Efficiency is high because learning the software is fairly easy
We actually took time in 2020 to test out Final Cut Pro and DaVinci Resolve to see if they would be better suited for our department but ended up sticking with Premiere. Each has [its] strong suits, but the non-linear editing style of Resolve was too complicated to grasp when already working in linear programs for so long. Their features aren't as robust and Premiere (outside of color). Final Cut is always a great tool, but if we were to switch to using PC it would become a problem down the road. And not being able to seamlessly use After Effects within Final Cut was the final nail in the coffin.

I have actually recommended Adobe Premiere Pro to many people looking to get into the editing field. It is perfect for any type of video creation. It would not be very useful for someone who isn't serious about video editing and wants to just use something to cut out the beginning or ends of clips. It's too advanced for that and [maybe] confusing for someone not educated in the field.
