What is Premiere Pro?

Adobe Premiere Pro is a video editing software that has become a cornerstone program for timeline-based and non-linear video editing. It allows you to execute everything from everyday tasks to advanced video editing, leaving you with a broadcast-quality video. 

Video creators can use Premiere Pro to edit all kinds of videos. It’s used by social media marketers and YouTubers for online videos, by ad agencies to create commercials, and even in high-budget films and television shows. Premiere Pro is also evolving and adding new features all the time. While Adobe After Effects is the go-to for advanced visual effects and motion graphics, many consider Premiere Pro video editor for experts – although the two applications are designed to work together
