CS5.5 expands options for independents, with fully-accelerated editing on laptops, native support for DSLR video cameras, and Audition now on the Mac with deep audio correction and enhancement tools.

Adobe released version 5 of its Creative Suite collection back in May 2010, built around fourteen core applications in design, Web, and production suites, spanning the creative workflow across print, web, video, interactive, and mobile. For video production work, CS5 emphasized performance to meet the challenges of higher resolutions and editing with native file formats, moving Premiere Pro, After Effects, and Photoshop to full 64-bit applications on both Mac OS and Windows. Premiere Pro CS5 also added the GPU-accelerated Mercury Playback Engine for real-time HD editing and playback.

Now a year later, Adobe has returned with Creative Suite 5.5 - not updating the entire suite, but some key components including InDesign and Dreamweaver, plus significant updates to the video production tools.

What's New

The new CS5.5 Production Premium steps the core production tools to new 5.5 versions, including Premiere Pro, After Effects, Media Encoder, Device Central, Flash Professional, and Flash Catalyst.

CS5.5 also adds the full Adobe Audition audio editor into the suite, replacing the simpler Soundbooth tool from CS5. Audition provides deep support for multi-track recording, nondestructive editing, and mixing (now including native multichannel support for 5.1 sound), plus audio restoration and effects. Plus, the new Audition is native on Mac and Windows, with a rebuilt multi-threaded playback engine to import and edit and apply effects in parallel. Adobe has also introduced a new subscription model, so you can download and run the tools you want on demand, and pay for them only when you need them. read more...
