Adobe Premiere Pro 2.0

Wow...I've just transitioned from Avid Xpress Pro HD to Adobe Premiere Pro 2.0 and its been a beast. I'm having the hardest time learning this software and its killing me (time wise).

I was wondering if any of you all out there could possibly direct me to a good Tutorial Site and give me any pointers...

I'm struggling the most as it come to simple effects, like Flm Fade (In Avid) and splitting my video into two halves (The 'H' key in Avid).

Another thing is, After Effects! What in the World!

I'm sure you're wondering why i made the switch...Well in Avid when capturing 24p, you have to have a 24p camera conected to capture with. I use a Consumer DV Camera as a deck, so that i dont put hours on my head. Its not 24p. So i end up capturing my 24p Video 30i...it doesnt look as great as it could if the setting allowed me to do it 24p on an Interlace deck...

Long Story short. I like the way Premiere puts out video. but i cant seem to get it edited first.

If you are talking about actually splitting the existing clip, Premiere Pro does not do so, to my understanding.

If you are talking about splitting in edit, try these methods.

Splitting a clip in edit.

Method 1. Double click on your clip. It should come up in source monitor. Select in point by clicking on "{" on the source monitor window. Go to point clip you want "out", click on "}". Place cursor in source monitor window, left click and hold, and drag to time line. You should have only the selected area on the time line.

Method 2. Use this one if you want to apply a standard filter effects to all the clip first. Drag the whole clip to time line. Apply any common effects (brightness, color correction, etc. Shuttle time line cursor to point at point you want to split. When done with that, select razor tool from tool window, superimpose over clip at the cursor point. You will notice the editor assists by indicator that you are over the cursor point. Click to split the clip.

Use the Razor tool to click on a clip in the timeline and split it. Or press ctrl+k to split clips on all tracks at the CTI.

When I moved from Premiere to Avid, it took me a while to figure out that 'H' is Avid's "Razor tool"...

I don't think Premiere has a "Film Fade" effect.

Garrison,

You have two choices. Learn the Premiere Pro shortcuts, or say to heck with it and set the keyboard to mimic Avid Express.

Under Edit > Keyboard Customization, select the top choice of the dialog box to read "Sortcuts for AVID Express DV 3.5" and go on about your business like you never switched.
