What You Need To Know
About Adobe Video Editing Software

Are you intending to learn or use Adobe video editing software? It'd be good for you to understand what Adobe video editing software comprises of and how the various parts fit together.


Adobe produces a lot of products and software programs for video editing - it makes sense to be clear about what these programs are before you start working on them.

The Adobe video editing software suite for making movies comprises of a few key products. One of them is Adobe Premiere Pro, which is their flagship product.

If you want breakthrough performance for video production, and native support found in the 64-bit, GPU-accelerated Adobe Mercury Playback Engine, then you should work with Adobe Premiere Pro.

You can choose any video format you want and accelerate production from scriptwriting to editing, encoding, and final delivery.

For those who want a little more scaled down features in their Adobe video editing software suite, it would make sense to go for Adobe Premiere Elements. This is the #1 selling consumer video-editing software and it allows you to create incredible movies effortlessly. We're talking about powerful, automated movie-editing options; professional-quality effects, quick and easy sharing and more.

Another component of the Adobe software suite is Adobe After Effects. These software effects sold by Adobe enable you to create groundbreaking motion graphics and blockbuster visual effects. And I mean really blockbuster effects, e.g. realistic motion blur, Timewarp to slow down and speed up footage (e.g. like in those Matrix movies). You can also manipulate moving and still images using hundreds of effects such as stylize, distort, and shatter.

One thing that I do always remind my video editing friends and readers is that Adobe products (with the exception of maybe Adobe Premiere Elements) are notoriously hard to master. I mean, there are professional level courses and certificates that you need to obtain to certify your capabilities in using the software, especially Adobe Premiere Pro. So what I'd advise you to do is to go look for a good book in Adobe Premiere Pro before you start using it. Here's an excellent introductory book which helped me out a lot when I was starting out with Adobe Premiere.

I hope the above has helped you understand Adobe video editing software a lot better. Of course, Adobe has more products than these, but I'm sure that in your video editing journeys you'll be using at least one of these three products, especially if you're already an Adobe fan in one way or another.
