New to Premiere Pro? In this tutorial I show you how to create a video using Adobe Premiere Pro.

There are 7 simple steps to creating your film project.

1. Create a project

First you need to create a new project. Select a location and filename to save your project file and any temporary files Adobe Premiere will create.

2. Import media

The very first thing you need to do once you created your project is to import some media. You can import video, audio, image and other types of media files - Premiere Pro is pretty flexible.

3. Create a sequence

A sequence is a container for your media files, a template that you can use to organise your clips and then export into a final video file. There are multiple ways to create a sequence. The easiest way is to drag a piece of media directly onto the 'New Item' icon.

4. Edit your project

Once you have your sequence set up you can start to drag and drop your media items into the timeline, cut out the best parts and arrange them to create your film project outline. Make sure to familiarise yourself with all of the great editing tools provided by Premiere Pro and I guarantee your editing will flow a whole lot quicker.

5. Add transitions

Transitions are used to blend between two consecutive clips. You can find a large number of transitions in Premiere Pro in the Effects panel. Open up the 'Video Transitions' folder and drag the transition you want onto the start or the cut between the clips in your sequence.

6. Add effects

In the Effects panel in Premiere Pro you will find the 'Video Effects' folder. You can find a large number of cool deformation, colour correction, styling effects inbuilt into Premiere Pro. Simply drag the effect onto the clip you want to apply them to. With the clip selected, you can tweak the effect parameter in the Effects Control panel.

7. Working with Titles

Titles are usually text elements, but can also contain icons and graphics, that overlay your footage. You can create titles by clicking on the New Item -- Title option in the project panel. In the title editor you can then define the elements in your title. Once you created the title, simply drag it from the project panel into your Sequence to use it.

8. Exporting your sequence

Once you are happy with your sequence, you can export it. Before you can export a sequence you need to place the start and end markers - you can do this by positioning the timeline indicator where you want, right clicking it and selecting 'Mark In' and 'Mark Out'. This will define the working area of your sequence and tell Premiere which parts of the sequence you want to export.

With your working area defined, make sure the sequence is selected, then go to File -- Export -- Media. Select your export format and your target filename and then set any other options that you like.

I usually like to keep my bit rate between 10 - 20. I find it gives me decent video quality at a reasonable file size.

Tobias Gleissenberger from Melbourne, Australia got hooked onto film making and visual effects with the rise of YouTube. After watching way too many videos from Freddie Wong, Final Cut King and Video Copilot, he realised that creating impressive VFX was now well within the reach of the indie filmmaker.

Unable to find videos that were both educational AND entertaining, he started to create his own style of 'edutainment' tutorials online. He enjoys sharing his enthusiasm and passion for filmmaking and visual effects with anyone who is willing to put up with his 'special' type of humour.

As America's Test Kitchen enters its 15th season on PBS, they've made the switch to Premiere Pro Creative Cloud. Post-production Supervisor and director Herb Sevush has been with the show from the beginning, and confessed some trepidation moving away from FCP 7, but has found it to be a great fit for their data-intensive, increasingly 4K multicam production, and his work with remote editors. Here, Herb offers some insights into both the why and the how of their switch, with special attention to Premiere Pro CC's approach to multicam.
