What University is that which tortures the students with Premiere Pro?
Indiana University Purdue University Indianapolis. Adobe is giving the kids most of their programs. I've been teaching Final Cut for years but now have to switch to Premiere because the kids can have it on their computers.
Final cut had a great tutorial exercise that walked you through the process of putting clips in bins, adding a clip or group of clips to a timeline, adjusting edits and adjusting sound. I'm looking for something like that. I suppose I could take the video from the Apple tutorial and rewrite the tutorial to work with Premiere - how ironic.
The Premiere-wiki has a wealth of tutorials, with more coming on line almost daily. The main page is: http://premierepro.wikia.com/wiki/Adobe_Premiere_Pro_Wiki
Eddie Lotter does a great job with keeping things organized and updated.
I also recommend the Adobe Press, "Classroom in a Book" series. I know that the new one for CS4 is in the works, but do not know the current disposition. Maybe Adobe would make you a deal on those too, when published. One of the contributors to this forum is working on that project and maybe he can weigh in with a release date. I won't mention any names, but am certain that he'll see this and add to it, if he can.

Steve, the online help of CS-4 is here:
... that's probably all you ever need as experienced video cutter, and if it is not specifically mentioned in the manual, then Premiere can't do it. However, even tough the Adobe propaganda claims that quicktime can be edited, any sort of quicktime video and codecs do not work in Premiere.
