This course is designed for people who have been editing for at least 6 months. We will assume you already know how to import footage, edit a basic project, and export it. We will focus on keyboard shortcuts, tools you learned but never used, and moving beyond the basic cut.

We will cover multi-camera editing, keying and compositing, keyframing and effects. Take advantage of the integration of the Creative Cloud by sending sequences to other Adobe programs like Audition, for advanced audio manipulation.

Students are encouraged to bring along recently started projects to use for practice and critique.
