Adobe Premiere Pro is arguably the best and most popular video exiting program available and is relatively simple to use when starting out and offers in-depth tools and features for those wanting to get creative with their video editing post-production projects and skills.
When starting off in Premiere Pro, you can get by just fine without making use of many tools in the toolbar, unlike Adobe Photoshop. However, the tools in the Premiere Pro Toolbar are incredibly useful and should not be discarded. Taking the time to learn these tools will drastically speed up your workflow and improve your editing accuracy.
