About the event

Course Details


In this advanced course, we will cover many time-saving techniques, including Dynamic Link with After Effects, Photoshop, and Audition. We will discuss using a proxy workflow for working with 4K footage and other high-res formats. Participants will also learn advanced skills in audio sweetening, color correction and grading, and motion graphics, including creating motion graphics templates (.MOGRTs).


This class is appropriate for intermediate level users that are familiar with the fundamentals of Premiere Pro or have taken our Premiere Pro Intro course. Participants will get the most out of this class if they know some of the basics such as asset management, trimming, transitions, and simple effects. Bringing samples of the kinds of projects that you’d like to be able to do is helpful but not required. We also recommend that you have the software installed before starting the class. You can purchase the software or obtain a trial version of it from the Adobe web site at
