Welcome to the forum.
What, specifically, do you want to know about Adobe Premiere Pro?
I would also suggest going to the Premiere Pro FAQ sub-forum, and just reading and watching the linked tutorials, in many of those threads. Lot of great information in those FAQ entries.
Hello Bill Hunt, thank you for your concern, you know the adobe products are the best and I'm a big fan of it but i find difficulties in their usage. As you know I'm from Uganda, an African country where no production schools are in place.So it s just a humble request that if possible you either help me out or get me in-touch with any senior producer of videos or audio producer who uses Adobe products. I really think i have the talent if I'm to given the knowledge.To be sincere, am still a student in a University doing a degree course in Development Studies , but i would also like to be great a producer in our region especially through the use of Adobe products. And i think you are the right people to help me. thanks you positive response will be my pleasure
Many Adobe products have virtually unlimited power, but with that power, comes a learning curve. Though I have used Photoshop for decades, it still takes me a bit, to get up to speed with new releases. I spend about 3 mos., just re-learning the program. Same with Premiere Pro, and probably more so with AfterEffects (because I do not use it, as often, as I should).
The FAQ's area, that I linked to, would be a great place to start. There are many videos in those, and practically a complete college course contined within. Besides those videos, and articles, Lynda.Com is a great learning resource for most Adobe programs.
I would take a day, and just sit at the computer, running through everything in those FAQ articles, to get a very good overview of Premiere Pro CS 6.
Thank you Bill Hunt for your concern again , so i will try it and see. in case i fail i will need you to help out by giving me your personal and direct contact if possible so we that know each either your e-mail or contact number because i just like the way you respond to customers and this makes me to like Adobe products more and more and i admire the fact that it has the products and also the best video effects and transitions, so in case of any offer about production please do not for get about me.
This user to user forum is not really going to help much with general education, it is better with answering specific questions

Then, when you are actually using Premiere Pro and have a specific question, go to the Premiere Pro forum and ask... always remember to provide basic information at the top your question

Thanks for your concern again but i think you know the economical and technological backwardness of Uganda, as a matter of fact, we do not have adobe pro books at our place and i think it is hard for me to get one. so since there is no any other way i think i can suggest, the choice is your hands as professionals. so just guess of the exact and appropriate way to help me out
