Adobe Premiere Pro CS6Compilation: Varun VerlekarHistoryPremiere Pro is the redesigned successor to Adobe Premiere, and was launched in 2003. Premiere Pro refers to versions released in 2003 and later, whereas Premiere refers to the earlier releases. Premiere was one of the first computer-based NLEs (non-linear editing system), with its first release on Mac in 1991. Up until version Premiere Pro 2.0 (CS2), the software packaging featured a galloping horse, in a nod toEadweard Muybridge's work, "Sallie Gardner at a Gallop".FeaturesPremiere Pro supports high resolution video editing at up to 10,240 8,192resolution, at up to 32-bits per channel color, in bothRGBandYUV. Audio sample-level editing,VST audio plug-insupport, and 5.1 surround sound mixing are available. Premiere Pro's plug-in architecture enables it to import and export formats beyond those supported by QuickTime or DirectShow, supporting a wide variety of video and audio file formats and codecs on both MacOS and Windows. When used withCineform'sNeo line of plug-ins, it supports 3D editing with the ability to view 3D material using 2D monitors, while making individual left and right eye adjustments. Workflow integrationAfter EffectsThroughAdobe Dynamic Link, compositions fromAdobe After Effectsmay be imported and played back directly on the Premiere Pro timeline. The After Effects composition can be modified, and after switching back to Premiere Pro, the clip will update with the changes. Likewise, Premiere Pro projects can be imported into After Effects. Clips can be copied between the two applications while preserving clip attributes. Premiere Pro also supports many After Effects plug-ins.
PhotoshopAdobe Photoshopfiles can be opened directly from Premiere Pro to be edited in Photoshop. Any changes will immediately be updated when the Photoshop file is saved and focus returns to Premiere Pro.
Adobe Story, OnLocation and PreludeThe Premiere Pro workflow takes advantage ofmetadatain the script of a video production. The script is created in or brought intoAdobe Story, then passed toAdobe OnLocationto capture footage and attach any relevant metadata from the script to that footage. Finally, in Premiere Pro,speech recognitioncan match the audio to the dialogue from the script in the metadata. Clips can be searched based on their dialogue in Premiere Pro, and can be sent toAdobe Encoreto make searchable web DVDs.Adobe Preludereplaces OnLocation in CS6 and above.
