Adobe Premiere Pro is an editing program that offers the unique capability to edit video in real-time, along with a few other features that stand out as solid and reliable for PC users.

The Adobe Premiere Pro Program

If you have used a Windows PC in your lifetime, you have used an Adobe program. Adobe is one of the most reliable names in the software business, and they have their hands in practically everything. Adobe is responsible for the Flash and Shockwave players, without which you couldn't watch streaming videos or play most online games. They're also responsible for the most popular image editor ever, Photoshop. So to say that Adobe Premiere Pro is a high-quality video editing system would be an understatement. It's Adobe, after all.

Though before people start getting stars in their eyes, there's something else to realize about Adobe, and specifically the Premiere Pro editing software: It’s rather expensive. Adobe doesn't offer much of anything for free, and this editing program in particular is steep in price along with being pretty large in size and processor-intensive.

Features of Adobe Premiere Pro

One of the first features you might notice about Adobe Premiere Pro isn't how the software operates but rather what it costs. Adobe has become part of the Creative Cloud, which means a typical one-time fee has been replaced by a monthly subscription. This can be a positive if you only have a limited amount of editing, but it's most likely going to be a negative.

Now, in terms of how Adobe Premiere Pro actually works, there isn't much to say other than that it is truly one of the premier editing programs on the market. There’s just so much you can do with the program. For instance, the video suite is created to provide professional tools. If you are a legitimate filmmaker, you can use Premiere Pro for your final cut. You can also sync any project, develop in a wide range of formats, and create a slew of keyboard shortcuts for quick editing.

Premiere Pro is also compatible with other tools in Adobe's box, so people familiar with the Adobe line can build a complete suite of editing tools.

If you're a beginner, you will probably have to watch hours of tutorial videos before you actually get the hang of the program. Adobe Premiere Pro is a professional tool, and thus you need some skill to use it. The interface isn’t very friendly in that regard. Though Adobe does make it clear that this tool is marketed to individuals who already know how to edit and operate Adobe software.
