Overall Satisfaction with Adobe Premiere Pro

I have personally used Adobe Premiere Pro for over a decade. I use it to edit personal videos and also create videos for our on-line company advertising. It is considered the 'de-facto' standard for good reason - if it can't be done in Adobe Premiere Pro, it probably can't be done.
  • An abundance of Filter options
  • Separating sound and video elements
  • moving Text Balloons
  • I think Adobe Premiere Pro could really benefit from a better 'Quick Tutorial' feature.
  • Reorganization of all of the menus are in order - they have just gotten very long and could be more concise.
  • Tons of Filters to choose from
  • Built-in Audio editing and stripping features
  • The ability to export to Tons of different video file formats
  • Our video advertisements made by Adobe Premiere Pro receive a much better response than our previous video advertisements not made using Adobe Premiere Pro
  • We get compliments from new clients on our video advertisements (which lets us know that they definitely Notice the advertisement On-Line)
DaVinci Resolve works nicely (though some things have a different flow compared to Adobe Premiere Pro). More importantly though, whenever I ran into a limitation with DaVinci Resolve, I can always find a solution with Adobe Premiere Pro.

If you work with editing videos - it pays to take the time and learn Adobe Premiere Pro. Once over the initial learning curve (which can be steep), your videos will come alive easier and more professional looking using the features in Adobe Premiere Pro.

Evaluating Adobe Premiere Pro and Competitors

Yes - We replaced DaVinci Resolve with Adobe Premiere Pro because of some limitations with DaVinci Resolve's editor.
  • Product Features
  • Product Reputation
If it can't be done in Adobe Premiere Pro, it most likely can't be done. With every other video editing product, we always ran into some limitation - not so with Adobe Premiere Pro.
I would have done exactly the same thing - try to edit a video and see how it goes!

Adobe Premiere Pro Training

  • in-person training
Utilizing one of the many books available on Adobe Premiere Pro, each video editor can learn at their own pace.
