Top reasons to upgrade to Adobe® Premiere Pro® CS5

Industry-leading performance with the all-new Adobe Mercury Playback Engine—Work dramatically faster thanks to the native 64-bit, GPU-accelerated1 Mercury Playback Engine that provides rock-solid performance and stability, even at 4K resolution and beyond. Open projects rapidly, and create multilayer, effects-rich sequences without rendering.

Expanded native tapeless workflows—Work with the latest tapeless formats thanks to new native support for XDCAM HD 50, AVCCAM, DPX, and AVC-Intra, as well as DSLR cameras and enhanced RED. Native support means you never waste valuable production time transcoding or rewrapping and always have access to the original file’s pristine quality.

Script-to-screen workflow through integration with Adobe Story*—Move from script to screen faster with Adobe Story, a new Adobe CS Live online service.* Efficiently manage your shoot and streamline logging by importing scripts from Adobe Story to create complete shot lists and capture production notes in Adobe OnLocation™. Use Speech Search to synchronize the script to footage in Adobe Premiere Pro and quickly produce rough cuts. With Adobe Encore®, turn your DVD and Blu-ray Disc projects into searchable web-DVDs, and use Adobe Media Encoder to deliver your video for broadcast, device, film, and mobile distribution. CS Live online services are complimentary for a limited time—visit for details.

Open workflows with Final Cut Pro and Media Composer—Bring the creative benefits of Adobe tools to the whole project, exploring new possibilities with Adobe After Effects® and other Adobe software. Collaborate more efficiently by importing and exporting Final Cut Pro and Avid projects into Adobe Premiere Pro.

Get the best possible rendering from RED RAW footage, preserve maximum image quality by applying nondestructive adjustments, and achieve exactly the look you want with the RED R3D Source Settings dialog box in Adobe Premiere Pro.

Expanded interoperability between Adobe Premiere Pro and third-party NLEs lets you explore the creative benefits of Adobe Premiere Pro and other Adobe tools in any production workflow.

Faster editing with metadata—Turn spoken dialogue into searchable text-based metadata faster and more accurately. Edit quickly by marking in and out points in the speech analysis text, synchronize footage with scripts, and quickly locate clips containing human faces.

Dozens of timesaving improvements—Boost productivity with workflow features and enhancements suggested by users like you. For example, use automatic scene detection to create separate clips from HDV tapes, import assets from DVDs, and control keyframes with even more precision.

Streamlined encoding with revamped Adobe Media Encoder—Deliver content in virtually any format, including DPX, FLV, H.264, MPEG-2, QT, and WM, with Adobe Media Encoder, now with a more intuitive user interface. You can batch encode multiple versions of source files and sequences, manage priorities, and control advanced settings for each item individually. With new metadata thinning templates in Adobe Media Encoder, you can ensure that only cleared-for-distribution metadata is included at final output.

Tapeless camera support in Adobe OnLocation CS5—Use virtually any camera to record directly to disk. Plus, you can now use the powerful logging options in Adobe OnLocation, even when working with tapeless cameras on set.

Adobe Ultra® keyer—Achieve fast, accurate chroma keying, even on challenging DV or HD footage. Optimized for less-than-perfect footage, Ultra preserves shadows and can achieve complex keys on smoke, liquids, and transparent objects with minimal effort. The GPU-accelerated Mercury Playback Engine can dramatically increase rendering speeds when using supported NVIDIA graphics cards, depending on the system configuration and file types.

Native support for DSLR cameras—Edit video from the latest DSLR cameras, such as Canon 5D Mark II and 7D; Nikon D90, D300s, and D3000; and others. New native support means you never waste valuable production time transcoding or rewrapping and always have access to the original file’s pristine quality.

Searchable web-DVDs with Adobe Encore CS5—Create more engaging web-DVDs that automatically include a search interface, making it easier for viewers to navigate content. Metadata created throughout production makes your web-DVDs searchable and makes it easier for viewers to discover your site.

1. Audio level meters help you keep track of your audio signal so it doesn’t distort, and pop alerts identify when sudden surges occur that are too short to register on meters.

2. The Waveform Monitor operates in YUV or RGB color spaces, so you can evaluate brightness (luminance) and saturation levels.

3. The Vectorscope displays the amount of color in the video signal for either the full frame or for a single horizontal line within a frame.

4. The Field Monitor displays DV, HDV, and DVCPRO natively, so unlike your camera’s viewfinder or LCD screen, the Field Monitor displays video exactly as it is recorded.

5. Comment markers are displayed in the Field Monitor timeline.

The new Timestamp button tells OnLocation when the selected shotis being recorded, whether or not the camera is connected to OnLocation. When tapeless media is imported, OnLocation automatically matches the information to the recorded clips.

6. The Shot List in the Project panel lets you keep track of locations, In and Out point timecode, and other vital information, comment on clips, describe and catalog each shot, indicate camera moves, and automatically capture information coming from the camera.

7. The new Media Browser panel displays the contents of your computer drives. The Media Browser understands the standard Panasonic P2 and Sony XDCAM directory structure, so when you browse to a P2 directory, the Media Browser displays only the importable shots/takes. Likewise, when you navigate to an XDCAM directory, the Media Browser displays the importable clips. This saves you from having to search through the directory structure to find the content you want to import.
