You can easily install Adobe on your Mac or PC without encountering much difficulty. You can use a demo version first so that you can assess if the program can meet all your video editing needs.

When you start Adobe, you will instantly see a dialog box. The dialog is important because it will tell the program about your camera and how it records raw recordings. The equation has two parts Â? audio sampling and video resolution. For those who have camcorders that uses DV-CAM or mini DV tapes, the images recorded are at 720 by 480 resolution. Is your camera PAL or NTSC? Depending on your answer to this question, you will select between DV-PAL and DV-NTSC.

NTSC is used mostly in Canada and US while PAL is used in Asia and Europe. Did you take the footage in widescreen format (16:9) or standard format? After you answer this question, you should now pick the audio sampling rate. Premiere uses a default but if doesn’t apply to your situation, choose another option. All these things are done in the dialog for Project Settings.

After the dialog, you will now see Adobe’s working screen. The five areas on the screen are the following:

1. Project Area

The AVI/MOV files are tracked in this area. Such files contain all the raw recordings or footage.

2. Monitor Area

You will find two windows in this area. To the left is the ‘Source’ window and to the right is the ‘Program’. You can look at your AVI files at the left window and monitor the development of your movie or videos on the right window. You can also use the controls provided to stop, play, repeat, etc.

3. Timeline Area

4. Transition Area
