You won't find it in Nairobi, though they have spectacular hotels. Adobe Premiere is another popular pooping platform, although it isn't used as frequently as Sony Vegas, most likely because the program requires a powerful computer to run it and isn't nearly as easy to pirate. Still, many highly-regarded poopers are known to use it. First released in December 1991, the relatively simple and intuitive interface of Adobe Premiere is frequently compared to that of a Boeing 747-800. There are two types of Premiere; Premiere Elements is the more user-friendly, cheaper version, but also has less effects compared to its more complex brother, Premiere Pro. The major downside to Pro is that it can cost an upwards of $600, at most retailers. It especially doesn't help with Adobe incorporating Premiere Pro as part of the "Creative Cloud" suite of software. This was featured alongside Vegas Pro, Final Cut and Windows Movie Maker on the thumbnail of Youchew Trading Card #76, recognizing its foundational importance in Youtube Poop.
- Layering (i.e. placing a clip on top of another.)
- 99 video tracks and 99 audio tracks.
- Simple reverse effect (In WMM, a reverse effect is possible, but it requires timing. You start by cutting the clips small enough and they are rearranged. The end result comes out jerky and unpolished.)
- Time stretching (you can speed up and slow down by whatever amount you want. Pitch shift is optional.)
- More visual effects (Other effects of this caliber can be installed on Movie Maker with the use of custom plugins. Extra plugins do exist for Vegas, but they are expensive)
- Capable of other methods of Ear Rape
- Audio effects including pitch shift (popular for YTPMVs) and reverb. (Pitch shift only exists in WMM XP, but even then, you must speed up or slow down a clip with it).
- More reliable (the program does not crash as often as WMM, which can crash by itself. Compared to Vegas however, depending on the system, Premiere crashes sometimes to the point that reinstalling the program is required, as Stegblob can attest.)
- Compatible with Macintosh computers (Pro since CS3, Elements since version 9)
- Nesting, meaning you can reduce multiple, smaller clips into one larger clip. Useful if you want 2 things to move in unison (Useful for Flash poopers) or you just want to reduce clutter on the timeline. Nesting exists in Vegas, but it's track based, not clip based.
- The Software can actually be quite smoother and maybe even a little more stable than Vegas if you have a system good enough to run it smoothly, since Premiere uses more resources than Vegas. And if you have a more recent version of Premiere (CC 2014 and onwards) it allows for GPU accelerated editing and rendering, specifically with NvIDIA's CUDA technology, if you happen to own one of their cards. So, if your PC has enough resources for Premiere to eat up (A high-end CPU and GPU from 2011-ish and 8GB of RAM is definitely recommended as the minimum for Premiere), you're good to go. This feature was in Vegas and, to be fair, GPU acceleration does exist in Vegas Pro still but it's not as well implemented and CUDA rendering for MP4s from Vegas Pro 13 was removed entirely in 14.
- Has better stock effects for rape/glitch poopers. (Tho, not using plugins with a style like that is still heavily discouraged).
- Can open a clip straight up in After Effects without having to render a clip first. (But, that's to be expected, since it would make sense to have the software in their ecosystem tightly intergrated). But, your Premiere and AE versions have to match for this feature to work. So, if you have Premiere CS5, you have to have AE CS5 for the feature to work. Same goes for ever other Premiere/AE combo.
- It has a much nicer titler, so you can create much nicer looking text than Vegas' stock titler. (But if you have NewBlue Titler Pro 2.0 for Vegas, then you get a titler just as good as Premiere's).
- Allows for multiple sequences over one project. Meaning you can have multiple timeline windows in one project file.
- Again, it works with Macintosh computers (as Vegas is Windows only.)
- Requires a more powerful computer to run properly. (Tho this goes for all advanced video editors, really)
- Adobe Premiere Pro is extremely expensive, while Movie Maker comes free.
- Said to be impossible to find in Nairobi.
- Cracks for plugins are harder to find thanks to not many poopers using Premiere and most of them that do dnt even use plugins anyway. (But people like Biodegradable and LaVie CestLol do use Premiere with plugins).
- The pitch shifter doesn't work as well, you have to have a crazy good CPU, nest a clip before applying the shifter or just get lucky with your PC in order to pitch shift properly. (If you're having problems, nesting a clip is an almost guaranteed way to fix it). And even then, the pitch shifter is based around turining a knob instead of using a shortcut key. (+ or - in Vegas).
- Vibrato is feasible in Premiere using the Phaser, but the effect isn't quite the same, tho some would actually prefer it the way Premiere does it and could actually be used to create an effect not possible in Vegas. (But, if you have the right VST plugin in Vegas, it shouoldn't be too hard). Or, you could use Adobe Audition and get vibrato that way. And since you can right-click on an audio clip and get the option to edit audio in Audition, you can use one of Audition's effects to program vibrato. (However, you have to do everything manually, instead of just getting a pattern, depth and frequency and letting the effect automate everything on its own, automation is done manually). But you get a vibrato effect that sounds like just Vegas' vibrato effect.
- Since Premiere is more of a resource hog than Vegas, it can actually run smoother than Vegas if you have a good PC but bc of this, it can actually run rly slow, crashing and freezing almost constantly on a cheap PC, since Premiere's not gonna have a lot of resources to hog. So, if you have a cheaper, not quite powerful PC, you can either use Vegas Pro if you want a complex video editor on a modest PC or use Premiere Elements if you don't mind the stepdown.
- It's hard to get working with VST plugins. If you have a newer version of Premiere (Specifically CC 2015) then VSTs are easy to install, almost as easy as Vegas. But if you're on a version much earlier than that, it's gonna be a massive pain. (Unless you're willing to use Audition for VST effects, in which case, go bananas).
- While having a much nicer stock titler for creating better text with, the titler cannot animate itself. Meaning, if you want subtitles to appear as words are said for example, you can't keyframe one title block like you can in Vegas, you have to create a new title block for every change in the title that occurs.
Adobe Premiere Elements
Adobe Premiere Elements had its first version released in September 2004, with the most recent release (Adobe Premiere Elements 15) being released on October 4, 2016. Curiously, the releases skipped from 4.0 right to 7.0, as if Adobe couldn't care less about the numbers in between (although it was likely to match the release titles of the Photoshop Elements series).
Adobe Premiere Elements is kind of like Adobe Premiere Pro, but it is more affordable, has a more intuitive interface, and can run on less powerful computers. Most poopers who don't want to shell out hundreds of dollars on the Pro version instead prefer to spend $80 on this version, since Elements can still get the job done pretty damn well. The differences between the two platforms exist but can be looked over; Elements doesn't have colour correction as advanced as the professional release, nor does it have multicamera editing, motion tracking or time remapping.
