Steve's Basic Training Tutorials... steps are the same for several versions
I've tried the Linda.com tutorials and searched youtube for lessons but nothing has really educated me and got me going yet.
When you say "try", did you actually sign up, spend the $25 and start at the begginning and follow through to the end? If you, just sampled or "tried" the free stuff, you would have gaps in the learning process.
A condenced and free version of the Lynda.com course is here: http://muvipix.com/products.php?searchphrase=basic+training+premiere+elements&btn.x=22&btn .y=15
If you have specific areas of confusion that have you stuck, ask here. You'll get answers.
Thank you all for the tips and links!!!!
I just watched the 8-part basic training and already feel more acquainted and able to use PE11!!!
Steve, your voice, technique and instructions were super smooth, to the point and just what I needed!!
Much, much thanks!!!!
He is good. Spend the $25 for his expanded version on Lynda.com. You'll love it.
