The Cool Stuff in Premiere Pro
Advanced editing techniques in Adobe Premiere Pro. eBook (Watermarked PDF file). More than 600 pages with more than 2.200 images, illustrations and screen shots. This edition covers the 2014.2 version of Premiere Pro.


Premiere Pro template projects and custom presets

Workflow enhancements like Premiere Pro template projects and custom presets are used extensively throughout the book, and you’ll learn how to make your own, and why you should use them.

Integration with Adobe Production Premium

There is a chapter where Dynamic Link to After Effects is used for improved effectiveness, Photoshop is used for pretty advanced video stuff and Audition for audio clean-up. Direct Link to SpeedGrade is also covered of course. But most of the time, Premiere Pro can do the job all by itself.

Not for beginners

You’re supposed to know the basics of Premiere Pro before you dive into this book.

Expected release date for next and Printed version

UPDATE: For now, the book is only available as a PDF e-book. My original plan was to release a new PDF version and a printed version shortly after the 2016 release. Surprisingly, there was no 2016 release – Adobe chose to name the June 2016 release “CC 2015.3”. So no matter how fresh and up-to-date the content in my book would be, it would seem outdated because it “only covered the 2015 release”.

So I had to wait for the next update, and see if the Adobe folks had a new naming scheme up their sleeve. That release came in November 2016, and was named 2017. So now I’m in the process of updating all the chapters to cover the 2017 version. The plan is to release it, plus a printed version, late summer 2017.

Does that mean you should wait, and not buy the existing version? Not necessarily, this still is the most advanced book on Premiere on the planet, and I guarantee that you’ll learn a lot of new stuff. And since you’ll get a big discount (65% on digital version, 50% on paper version) on the 2nd edition when it’s released, you don’t have much to lose.

    • The other way is to contact me at, and I will manually stamp the files. I have a busy schedule, so it may take a while. Since it involves work from me, I’m also less likely to give a discount. 🙂 I need the names and e-mail addresses for every person who wants a copy.
