Justin very well explained video! I searched a lot before seeing yours and this was the first one that didn’t irritate me! thanks for the time and effort!

JesseDavtian says:

I have no timeline what to do?

M Gil says:

Been watching your videos for a while now, preparing for the shift from iMovie to Premiere Pro. Great Job! Quick question, do you typically import all videos from an “event” into your media bin? For example i’ve just finished up a family trip with well over 200 short video clips, would you import all of the video clips or do you view them all and just import the ones you think you might use?

Jorge Rodriguez says:

Leighton Jenkins says:

Do you have any tutorials on the updated version of Premiere? I have worked in Premiere before (its been a while) but since this update I have been lost. I’m hoping to start editing again but can’t seem to find many tutorials on the updated version.

Arthur Yurchak says:

Hi Justin! how do I stack the separate windows in a single expandable list like you have it on the right hand-side of your workspace? When I try doing it, they just stack next to each other in a single tab, which I don’t really like.

Jarred Bronstein says:

Hey Justin, solid video. Never used Premiere Pro before and just got it today to up my Youtube videos. I’m coming from iMovie so this is a big change. I noticed the interface is just slightly different with Premiere Pro 11.1 and was wondering if you’d be doing an updated tutorial. Really appreciate this awesome video and have already subbed to learn more from you! Cheers

Blessed1v says:

+Justin Odisho Bro! Love the videos! Just recently found your content and already a huge fan. Got to stop by your stream yesterday for a little bit as well. Just wanted to give a small video editing advice that I’ve seen on other Tutorials for FL studio and such. For the basic tutorials where people aren’t 100% clear on shortcut keys being used or just keys being held to zoom/scroll through… consider putting a small icon/text of the key being held or pressed to do whatever action so the viewers are aware of how you’re working around the interface so well. Something really helpful and appreciated by viewers from what i’ve seen on tutorial videos. It’s something that i know can be tedious on your end, but I think would be a great addition to your videos. Again, thank you thank you thank you for all the great content! Keep up the hard work and best wishes and blessings to you and your journey!

Imogen Stowell says:

You are so much clearer than the Adobe Tutorials! Thank you!

Matthew Do says:

Hey Justin, any idea why the playback video in Premiere is choppy/laggy for me? I don’t get why it isn’t as smooth as yours 🙁

EdVentures says:

My videos won’t play in real time in after effects.. I’m using a 2016 MacBook Air, is it because the mac can’t handle it or is there something wrong? I import any clip wether it’s 1080p or 4K and when I hit the space bar to view it, it’ll play for a second-3seconds and then replay itself.. it won’t play the whole clip.

Doohan Yogaraj says:

Thank you Justin, Sorry, Thanks sir, your video are obviously necessary. Hoping to see more of your videos.

Michael Aziz says:

the video doesn’t drag to the timeline panel

David Roy Depper says:

Hi Justin. Thanks for this tutorial. Can you suggest how I could download it so that I can store it on a laptop that I am giving to a young college student in Uganda? I am mentoring him in video production, and providing camera gear along with an editing system.

shakhawot hossen says:

Brian Shiau says:

Why is it that my editing process so laggy? IS there any way to have my videos render better? even just playback it choppy. My laptop is 2015 macbook pro 3.1GHz i7 and 16gb of RAM and Intel Iris Graphics 6100 1536 MB

Darrell James DeBrew says:

Derrick Kersey says:

Kool Krafter says:

Mini Oreo Cow says:

Omg ty so much!! I accidentally deleted my previous editor, (xD) and if I want the full version, I need to pay good money, and cus I’m just on my trial, you have convinced me this is so much better and I’m thinking of buying it! 🙂
At first, I was overwhelmed, but now I understand the basics of this software and I am learning the different features this has to offer every day. 🙂 Thank you so much! 😀

Philippe Noth says:

Thanks Justin, an excellent introduction for Premiere beginners like me.
