    Thanks Rich and Kelbyone. With a company move to Adobe CC I was planing on making the switch to Premiere from FCP and now I can do it with confidence. And do it without having to ever make the switch to FCP X.

    Exactly what I was looking for. I’ve become very tired of the slowness of FCP X and as I bought the Creative Suite have been hesitant to move to Premiere Pro because of a perceived steep learning curve. Rich shows that Premiere Pro is much more like the old FCP than the new one is and the ability to work without all the transcoding will speed my workflow significantly. I also note that the drivers are more up to date for my Matrox card and Premiere Pro so I get more value there. I learned FCP from Rich Harrington and if he believes that Premiere Pro would be a better choice and can make it as simple to use as this course shows, I’m in. Thanks Rich! —- Yes, please post my feedback

    What I have seen of the course is great, I do have a question..
    In the course Mr. Harrington refers to course samples in the workflow section, but I do not see them available to download. Are they available? —- Yes, please post my feedback
