The CS6 video editor allows editing in one program rather than using several time consuming steps. I am still not exactly certain how excited experienced videographers will be about this feature since this is a similar to a watered down version of Adobe Premiere.

Next, we will proceed by placing a clip in the timeline. Once the clip has been placed, you can then control the length of your video as well as decide whether to import other videos or stills. We can also apply basic transitions between clips. To do this, click the “+” button on the end of the timeline and select a second clip. Then, open the Transitions panel and drag a crossfade (or a different transition) between your clips. You can also add music to your video, and perform color corrections in the video which ranges from simple touch-up to color scheme changes. Once you've finished the editing process, you will have to render your file and will notice a few different file formats to choose from which makes the rendering a rather simplistic process.
