Its groundbreaking new Mercury playback engine can easily handle the playback and editing of otherwise tough to edit footage such as HD H.264 files and more. Getting assets into your project is a snap, whether capturing footage from your camera or importing other assets from your computer. Once in Premiere, its editing tools allow for impressive effects from simple overlays and video layering for B-roll to transition effects and compositing. Premiere has a wide array of tools and shortcuts to make your video editing experience as efficient and enjoyable as possible, allowing you to tell your story.
