Adobe Premiere Pro is one of the most popular video editing applications there is. But for newer users it can be a bit overwhelming. Even for experienced users, there’s always things we can do to improve our workflow. In this video, Jordy from Cinecom shows us is five favourite tips for faster editing in Premiere Pro.
Premiere has so many ways of doing the same thing, and often there are features built right into it that eliminate a bunch steps from a workflow. And that’s mostly what this video’s about, speeding up the workflow to save time. If you can do something automatically or just with one or two clicks of the mouse instead of a dozen, it’s going to do exactly that.
- 0:14 – Selection follows playhead (automatic clip selection)
- 1:30 – Track heigh presets
- 2:32 – Ripple Trim to next/previous edit
- 3:40 – Transition templates
- 4:35 – Cutting to the beat with markers
Each tip might only save you 3-5 seconds from the way you normally do it, but over the course of a whole edit, that time adds up really quickly, especially if you need to go back and make tweaks.
I use Premiere for my own video editing, and a couple of these tips I already use, like the ripple trim and the markers trick for cutting to music. That first one, though, I hadn’t seen before. I’ll definitely have to turn that one on.
