at 9:30 I think there is a=a much easier way to accomplish the ripple delete
Place the time marker where you want to do the cut and press “w”. This will cut the shot and pull all the clips to the right of your time marker

Hello sir. I wanted to ask a question that suppose I have a video which has audio too in it and if I want to select just a part of video how do I do that? Because while selecting that particular part of that video the audio in that section gets selected too. Similarly how shall I select only audio? I am using Adobe Premiere Pro v.2015. Please help me out. Your videos make me feel easier and familiar with the layout and features of the software.

ReivaxArt says:

Hello! Great Video! Can you help me with something about the WorkFlow to paste attributes in multiple videos?. The situation is this: I edited a long video with different cuts with differents attributes (Just Scales and Position), then I exported to another software to work in ColorGrade (Davinci Resolve), and I Export again to premiere to finish my edition with the same cuts with the same position in timeline (XML). The problem I get is with the “attributes”, I have to copy and paste each cut attribute to each cut with color grade, So my question is, Can I copy multiple attributes to paste to multiple videos, and no to Copy and paste one by one? Or a some Way to paste multiples attributes in all the cuts at time.

Hi. Great tutorial.
Noticed green screen sequence in your video. But I cannot find in your vids any Premiere Pro Green Screen.
I have PP only and AE I’m going to purchase in a couple of month but I would like to green screen right now. Do you have one or it’s planned?
