100 Acre Films by
Adobe recently announced the new CS6 versions of its production tools. 100 ACRE FILMS has been an all Adobe shop since it started, and we’re very excited about what’s included in the latest versions. Adobe took a strong toolset and made them even more powerful and user friendly. We got an advanced look, and a chance to use them before release.
The hub of any production environment is the NLE, and Premiere Pro continues to grow in ways that make it a more productive and indispensable tool in the post-production world. With native format editing, the Mercury Playback Engine, and tight integration with industry standard tools such as Photoshop and After Effects, it already had come a long way from the days when it was just “Premiere” with A-B track editing, a clunky interface, and spotty performance. Today’s Premiere Pro is a fast and modern tool for cutting the wide variety of footage that exists in the production world, as well as interacting with other production software.
With CS6, Adobe has re-designed the interface to give it a new uncluttered look and making it more productive for all your editing tasks. Gone are the empty gray spaces around the play controls in the Source and Program monitor, gone is the VU meter that wasn’t resizable, and gone are the trimming tools that weren’t the most efficient. What Adobe has done is provide a modern interface with loads of new options and features. In fact, I think it’s safe to say that this is the most customizable Premiere Pro ever released. You can even choose which buttons to have at the bottom of the source and program monitor…choices are always great. read more...
