Transitioning Into Adobe Premiere Pro CS5

This article, third in a DV Info Net series exploring Adobe Premiere Pro CS5, has as its focus three elements for consideration by those folks who are considering a move to Premiere Pro from other video editing applications (previously we had published Premiere Pro CS5 Tips, Tricks and Notes, by various DVi contributors, as well as Adobe Premiere Pro CS5 Six Months Later, by Pete Bauer).

First is a brief look at the advantages of Premiere Pro when working with contemporary HD video formats, specifically the tapeless acquisition systems offered by Canon, Sony and Panasonic. That’s followed by some user testimonials culled from our online discussion groups involving some of our DVi community members who have switched or are in the process of transitioning to Premiere Pro from other video editing programs. Then we’ll look at hardware options for configuring a desktop system or a mobile editing laptop using Adobe Premiere Pro CS5.
