  1. I really don't understand why on earth do people pay monthly subscriptions to Adobe when in fact there are other & better choices out there with no expensive monthly subscriptions! Here is one example of Adobe ripping off people. Affinity Photo is only £48.99 ($59.99) as a one off payment with free updates & the fact it blows Photoshop out of the water on ease of use & features & as mentioned price! I do of course understand Mark is using Premiere Pro on this project which of course is video but again there are other good choices even for video programs then having to pay expensive monthly premiums to Adobe!

  2. Lots of great info in this video, and I'm sure in the rest of the series as well. That being said, APPCC is of no use to me. I live in the sticks where there is no such thing as a reliable internet service, and to spend $20 per month for something I can't use makes no sense FOR ME. Just trying to watch this video was painful as the quality was 240P (anything higher kept buffering). 240P? Is that even still a thing?
    I will continue to watch the rest of the series as I may pick up some processes that work with the editing program I have, but unless I can 100% load the program and not need the internet for anything program related. I'm out.
    Same reason I won't recommend a GoPro to any of my friends.
    Thanks for the great content though!

  3. Especially for beginners who just want to try out software, do you have any interest in doing this using Da Vinci Resolve 14, which is free to download from BlackMagic Design? Unlike Premier Pro there is no expiration and no monthly fee.

  4. Dear reader, do you believe in photography as i do? I mean, as that unique way, of speaking about something, that can't be described with simple words. Of you can see and feel those lights touching a unique moment, then we share the same desire to freeze that emotion. I hear you, and I hear myself, so even if I am only 16, i've tried to accomplish this dream. Just give me one opportunity, just a piece of your time, and follow me as I have followed our hearts. Thanks, here is my Instagram if you want to take a look:

  5. Thanks, Mark. Looking forward to shooting more video this year, so this will be a great learning series for me. (I'm currently assembling video in Apple "Keynote", which isn't really suited to handling the details that Premier can.) Love your teaching style, so I'm looking forward to this.

  6. I have Sony Vegas Pro so unfortunately the Adobe-specific parts won't be helpful for me. Some editing techniques are universal, though, no matter how they are implemented in whatever editor is being used.

  7. Talking about good lighting, man are you clear behind that desk.
    I am a FCPX guy but let's see what you can do 😉

  8. For a video showing "Editing Basics", ie, a place to start for beginners and novices, choosing Adobe Premiere is a fools errand – it's an expensive app per year, and only works with an internet connection.
    If you want to show a NLE that is a good way to test the water for new users, the free versions of Lightworks and DaVinci Resolve are better choices.

  9. Thanks for doing this a much-needed approach. I have been avoiding video like the plague for a long time, but i'm going to give it a try with your help. No one delivers lessons better than you do!
