Here is a challenge for the auto didactic - learn Premier Pro in 30 days or 30 steps.
Step one - Download Premiere Pro.
Go to the Adobe site for Premiere Pro. You can do this by searching for Adobe Premier Pro or simply click on this link to Adobe. Adobe® Creative Suite® 5.5 Production Premium is featured and then there is a host of different products offered, but I am only interested in the first one which says, Premiere Pro CS5.5. Click try and get a free 30 day trial.
You can always buy it later.
Class done for Day one.
