The Pros And Cons Of Adobe Premiere Pro
There are so many video-editing software available online and as a subscription, but none more so famous as Adobe Premiere Pro. In fact, you’ll find professional video editors and filmmakers singing its praises over and over again. And there are so many reasons why it should be heralded, as one of the best pieces of software in the industry. But there are also some faults that even Adobe can’t always fix. So here are some of the pros and cons of Adobe Premiere Pro and why you should and shouldn’t buy it.
Pro 1: It’s Comprehensive
One of the sole reasons video editors use Adobe Premiere Pro is that it’s got all the bells and whistles they need to edit a high-quality video. If you need a specific animation path, it’ll do that for you. If you need different speed settings for your slow-motion shots, it has that. If you need to change the colour of a specific pixel, don’t worry, Premiere Pro can do the job! When it comes to video editing, Adobe Premiere Pro has it all. So, you don’t need to rely on other software to do it for you. In fact, it’ll save you the hassle of saving your edit, changing the format, editing it, and then saving it as a compatible video file for your clients. In addition, its in-built system can save multiple versions of your video, so everyone can access it on whatever device they want to use.

Con 1: It’s Complicated
While Adobe Premiere Pro has everything, sometimes it can be challenging to access the program you want. So, if you’re looking for those animation paths, you’ll need to know what keyframes are. If you need to match a shot and its colour palette to the shot before, you’ll need to know the specific matrixes of that shot. Essentially, Adobe Premiere Pro is a professional’s playground. They’ve been in the industry for years, so they know how to use it. But, on the other hand, if you’re just starting out, you’re going to have to spend a few hours looking up tutorials and practising daily, just to remember where those specific functions are. It’s a complicated software to use, but it should be a walk in the park once you know the ins and outs.
Pro 2: Integration Is The Name Of The Game
One of the best reasons Adobe Premiere Pro is highly praised is that you can use the same file across other Adobe programs. So, if your video or film needs some CGI effects and some 3D animation, you can open the same file on Adobe Animate or Adobe After Effects without losing or corrupting the file. Not only that, but you can also open the file in other programs like Adobe Photoshop or Adobe Lightroom. It’s a versatile platform for Adobe users, so whole teams of editors can work on the same video at once without needing to save multiple versions of it. For example, one editor can open the video on Animate, work on the animation, save it and pass it on to the next person. It’s that easy!
Con 2: Integration Only Works With Adobe
Of course, the best and most compatible programs you can use are made by Adobe. Although you may find great options online, with other software providers that say they’re compatible with Adobe, chances are, those “compatible” programs may not include the visuals you want. So, for example, if you have a font that you think would work well with your video, it might not be usable on Premiere Pro because the software you built it on isn’t compatible with Premiere Pro. In the end, you’ll have to use one of the pre-set designs that Adobe has, or you’ll need to pay a hefty price just to get your font into the program.
Pro 3: It’s Versatile
In a nutshell, Adobe Premiere Pro is every video editor’s dream. After all, you can use it both online and offline. So, if you’re on the go, and you don’t even have an Internet connection, you can still work on your video edit, save it, and when you do have an Internet connection, you’ll still be able to save it to your cloud drive. Not only that, but you can even work across platforms. So, if you started editing your video on your computer, you can switch over to your tablet or even your mobile phone since there is now an Adobe Premiere Pro app. You can edit your videos anywhere.
Con 3: It Will Cost The World
If you want to get the most out of Adobe Premiere Pro, you’ll need to save your money. The Adobe subscription package can range anywhere from $20 – $400+, depending on what subscription you go for. If you’re a budding video editor, you should be OK with downloading the solo package. But if you’re trying to cover all areas of video production, including video effects, animation, and credits, then you’re for a nasty surprise. The Adobe Creative Cloud package can cost around $40 a month. It may not seem like much now, but if you consider the entire year, you’re paying $480, so you can create unique and high-quality videos for clients who’ll, more often than not, pay half that amount. So, why would you want to spend that money?
