Eleven years ago, I walked into my first video production class my junior year of high school. We had two DV cameras, one was the classic Sony VX2000, and one computer that the whole class had to share for editing. I instantly fell in love with how easy it was to edit video in the computer using Adobe Premiere 6.0
I used Premiere my junior and senior years, then switched to Vegas after graduating. As you know from my recent blogs, after nine years with Vegas, I’m back to Premiere, coincidentally, it’s another “6” release, CS6.
Given these circumstances, I thought it’d be fun to play with the version I used in high school again, so I got online and found a “portable” version of 6.0. When it’s splash screen came up, I was whisked back to my junior year, when I’d stay after school just to get more time editing. Premiere has come a long way these past ten years, but it’s still fun to re-visit my roots. I’m tempted to do a small project on it, standard def of course (HD wasn’t around back then). I hope you enjoy the above photos, showing how far it’s come.
