I’m working with my intro broadcast students this week and they are working on their first editing project. For that project, I let them use whatever editing program they are familiar with to make the first project a little less intimidating for them. However, some students haven’t done much of any video editing before and are looking for something to use.
We use Adobe products in the room and each student has an Adobe license through the program they can use, so I recommend they give Adobe Rush a try. It’s a great mobile editing tool and integrates really nicely with Adobe Premiere Pro that they’ll be using later this semester.
The video above is the nice little walkthrough tutorial that gives them enough info to edit together their first, simple product.
