As a video editor, I apply all the necessary techniques that are relevant to my craft, no matter which editing system I use. So can you. It's just like driving a car: Once you know how to drive one, you can easily switch to another.
Switching from Avid Media Composer to Adobe Premiere Pro CC needs few adjustments to get yourself working right away. In this tutorial series I explain how you can become familiar with the different, yet familiar user interface of Premiere Pro. By understanding how this nonlinear editor (NLE) works, you can easily avoid some common traps you might otherwise encounter.
The following nine videos will help you get the most out of using Premiere Pro from the perspective of a professional editor who has used Avid Media Composer for many years. You don't have to watch them in any specific order; just watch the ones that will help you form a complete picture of working with Premiere Pro. I also recommend watching a short demo by Joost van der Hoeven that shows a common technique for migrating a project from Avid Media Composer to Premiere Pro.
