Notes
  • I’ve always been sketchy about shifting from one software to another or even upgrading software I use regularly, most because I’m afraid of the time wasted as well as the new/different shortcuts and features. I’ve been editing on FCP for a few years now and recently a friend told me about the new Premier Pro version which supposedly kicks its ass. I downloaded the trial from here - http://www.adobe.com/in/downloads/?sdid=JUMTN and gave it a shot but the changed interface was too hard to handle. Fortunately Adobe have been kind enough to provide a demo with all the basic features as well as some unique ones so you can watch this http://www.adobecs6vod.com/?sdid=KABYU and get on with a bigger and better editing software!
