Christopher- Thanks for the link. The problem is i didn't see a tutorial on there titled premiere 6.5 for morons.
KungFuManChew- Thanks that was my problem all along. I would try and play around with premiere by putting in a few clips and a few transitions. Then when i would try and play it, i could never see my transitions so i would just get frustrated and quit. Thanks maybe I'll try and learn it now.
