Premiere Pro CS5 New Features

with Jeff Sengstack

Video: Welcome

Hi, I'm Jeff Stengstack, the author of this tutorial on Adobe Premiere Pro CS5's new features. Premiere Pro CS5 has several improvements that focus on better performance, greater stability, and enhanced efficiency. I'm going to cover all the major improvements in my tutorial videos. Topping the list, Premiere Pro CS5 runs only on 64-bit Mac or Windows operating systems. As a result, it runs processes faster, handles large files and projects better, and is more stable. Premiere Pro CS5's new Mercury Playback Engine means you can view multiple layers of HD footage smoothly in real time, no rendering needed.

Hi, I'm Jeff Stengstack, the author of this tutorial on Adobe Premiere Pro CS5's new features. Premiere Pro CS5 has several improvements that focus on better performance, greater stability, and enhanced efficiency. I'm going to cover all the major improvements in my tutorial videos. Topping the list, Premiere Pro CS5 runs only on 64-bit Mac or Windows operating systems. As a result, it runs processes faster, handles large files and projects better, and is more stable. Premiere Pro CS5's new Mercury Playback Engine means you can view multiple layers of HD footage smoothly in real time, no rendering needed.

Many Premiere Pro video effects have been upgraded to take advantage of the Nvidia GPU acceleration and the new UltraKey effect lets you chroma key HD footage in real time, even video with uneven lighting, frizzy hair, smoke, liquid and transparent objects. Premiere Pro CS5 works with an expanded breadth of tapeless HD formats, including Sony's new XDCAM HD 50 and Panasonic's new AVCCAM, as well as with the latest digital, single lens reflex cameras like the Canon 5D and 7D.

Since Premiere Pro CS5 works natively with these formats and several others, you don't have to waste time or loss video quality transcoding or re-wrapping video files. Premiere Pro CS5 works seamlessly with the newly released Adobe Story, the latest version of OnLocation, and Premiere Pro's Speech Analysis tool to synchronize a script, the footage and then edit based on the dialogue transcript. Finally, Premiere Pro CS5 presents several editing enhancements that simplify everyday tasks, such as importing assets from DVDs and using a keyboard shortcut to move the in or out point of a clip, or to automatically make rolling edits.

So let's start taking a look at all the cool new stuff.
