iMovie (MAC/iPhone): One of the simplest programs available for basic editing. iMovie is great for someone just learning the basics of editing, allowing for some special effects and transitions. iMovie Handout
Adobe Premiere (Windows/MAC/iPhone): This program is quickly becoming the most popular in the industry. It’s simple for beginners, but has hundreds of specialties for an advanced editor to master. Premiere is often used to complete professional films and commercials, as well as basic school projects or compilations. Premiere has a fantastic titling tool, allowing the editor to quickly, efficiently, and creatively add titles to their project. Premiere does not allow for multiple editors to work on the same project, or create some of the cutting edge effects.Adobe Premier Instructions
Adobe After Effects (Windows/Mac) This program is huge. It allows for so much creative control, but it is extremely unforgiving and difficult for beginners. After Effects is best used for special effects rather than actually editing a video, as most editors will make the effect here, then export it into a separate Premiere timeline.
