How do you have the BETA version when that program is closed and the real product has been issued?

Some other places to read
I highly suggest that you start with the Lynda.com tutorials that were just released. You can take them online for free for 30 days if you choose that option when you register your copy of the Adobe CS3 Production Premium. Otherwise, it is only $25 for a month of tutorials on many varied subjects.
>I was wondering if there were any good complete beginner tutorials that basicly explain the basics of everything I need to know
Yes. It's called "school". Great place to learn things. Any other suggestions offered should only be considered after this one.
What is your problem Jim? You don't need school to learn Premiere for god sakes. Give people a break. A couple good tutorials and he would be good to go. Oh, I forgot. You want everybody to spend a fortune on school before they can start having fun editing.
IMO, film schools are overrated big time. The best way to learn is to play with everything and just start trying things out. Most of the time you will stumble on something cool that you never would have thought of when planning things.
There are three kinds of people:
1. Those who make things happen,
2. Those who watch things happen, and
3. Those who wonder what happened.
The best category to belong to is the first one, even if it means being an autodidact, which only means you had a fool as a teacher.
As Anna Freud once said,
i Creative minds have always been known to survive any kind of bad training....
I agree with Patrick on this and Jim, as much as I value formal education, nothing can replace experience. As is often said:
i "Good judgment comes from experience; and experience, well, that comes from bad judgment."
i "Experience is that marvelous thing that enables you to recognize a mistake when you make it again."
I'm still now sure how the OP (that is Original Poster, for the OP who is just starting) has a BETA install running now that the real software is shipping (don't Beta installs have ending dates?) but at least there have been enough links entered for a good start
Doing a search at Amazon would be another resource, or a Google for likely terms to help a beginnner
Again to the OP - the people here will help any way they can, but that help is generally devoted to specific answers to specific questions
You really need to be a SELF STARTER now, and do a lot of reading, both online and any books you decide to buy... plus actually use the software... then come back with any specific questions you may have
Wasn't the Preview which I assume the OP is calling a Beta time out in August? Thats the only way I can see it because to be on the beta team, one would expect you would already know where to start.
>You don't need school to learn Premiere for god sakes.
True, but that's not what I was suggesting. The OP was looking for "any good complete beginner tutorials that basicly explain the basics of everything I need to know".
I took this to mean he has no idea how to edit, not just how to use Premiere. The dude wants to make a movie, he should learn how first. Then get trained in specific software.
Check out the MINI MOGUL MANUAL at http://www.moviepubs.net/bk0003.htm
What about the Classroom in a Book for Premiere Pro? Although there isn't explicitly a CS3 CiB yet though.
My first book on Premiere (6.0 I believe) was "Teach Yourself Premiere in 24 Hours" by SAMS Publishing. I later had the Adobe CIB and found the SAMS book to be much better, especially for a beginner.
Good Luck & Have Fun!
Oky Doky Thanks for the links guys!
