Blu-ray Disc authoring with motion and multipage menus

Deliver DVDs, high-definition Blu-ray Discs, and interactive web DVDs with Adobe Encore® software, included with Adobe Premiere Pro.

Cross-platform, open workflows for easier collaboration

Collaborate more efficiently by easily importing and exporting projects regardless of format. Perform roundtrip editing with files from Avid Media Composer, Avid Pro Tools, or Apple Final Cut Pro software.

Streamlined encoding with the revamped Adobe Media Encoder

Reach audiences worldwide on virtually any device. Batch encode in the background to a broad selection of formats, including web and video standards, using the streamlined Adobe Media Encoder.

Industry-leading performance and stability from the Adobe Mercury Playback Engine

The Mercury Playback Engine in Adobe Premiere Pro is native 64 bit, optimized for multicore, and GPU-accelerated to provide real-time effects, color correction/color grading, accelerated rendering, and superior multilayer performance.

Superior color fidelity

Get greater color precision, variety, and control with 8-bit, 16-bit, and 32-bit floating point color. Adobe Premiere Pro provides higher color fidelity in program and source monitors than Final Cut Pro (which is suitable for rough color grading only) and offers better YUV to RGB conversion.

Powerful metadata features for greater editing and production efficiency

Add intelligence to your assets using innovative new metadata features that make editing easier. Easily turn spoken dialogue into a timecode-accurate transcript, and then use keywords to quickly jump to or edit specific video segments.

Real-time 3D editing

Edit 3D content in real time thanks to 64-bit performance. World-class integration with CineForm provides a smoother workflow than Final Cut Pro.
