    Default Newbie to P.Pro - from Elements - got 2 simple questions

    Hey guys, I've been using Premiere Elements alot recently and found it realy easy.

    Recently put Premiere Pro on the Mac - I'm trying to use but find it way more complicated ;p

    Can someone just tell me what's the process to cut up a video?

    For example if I have a 5 minute video clip and want to chop it up into smaller peices of the bits only I need?

    Also on Premiere Elements I found it really easy using the timeline then putting the effects in the middles for transitions to make quick vids - How do I do that with P.Pro?

    Any help would be appreciated

    editing in premier pro is pretty much the same as in elements.

    the following is for version CS5 but will probably work in other versions too.

    with your footage on the time line, from the tool bar towards the top left of the screen, select the razor tool (rather than the scissors as you would in elements) . drag your mouse to the timeline .... you will now see your "razor" on the timeline. simply splice (left click the mouse)wherever you need to make a cut.

    transitions ..... you should have a box to the left of the screen with the following headings .... media browser, info, effects, history.

    select effects and from the drop down menu select video transitions then choose your transition style. from that drop down list drag the transition to your edit point.

    premiere pro is quite a bit more advanced than elements but well worth the effort if your willing to put irt in
