Premiere Pro CS6 is the newest incarnation of Adobe’s professional non-linear editing system. Combining a sleek user interface, powerful editing tools and effects, broad support for most of the industry’s high-end camera formats, as well as the world-renowned Mercury Playback Engine, it is no wonder that Premiere Pro has seen use in such major Hollywood productions as The Social Network, Monsters, and James Cameron’s Avatar.
Film and video production is an ever-changing, ever-evolving medium. The 1920’s saw the advent of “talkies” which replaced silent films and left behind many who couldn’t adapt to the new technology. In the ‘30’s, the Wizard of Oz introduced new world of full, vibrant color. And now, in 2012, Adobe Premiere Pro CS6 is once again changing the production world, and ushering in a new era of cinematic awesomeness.
I have been shooting and editing videos since before time began (which is to say, around 2003), and over the years I have had the chance to use a number of NLES (non-linear editing system), from Final Cut Pro, to Avid Media Composer and Sony Vegas. The reigning champion, in my opinion, has been and still is Adobe Premiere Pro.
It’s summer time. Maybe you’re out traveling around, hitting up the beach, hanging out with friends and family, visiting the national parks and capturing tons of memories on camera. Or maybe you’re rafting Class IV rivers, shreddin’ the mountain bike trails, trekking through Machu Picchu, or working on your Kelly Slater skillz and getting barreled at Pipeline (hey, we can all dream right). Or maybe you just stuck a GoPro to your head as you went out to the bar so the next day (for better or worse) you’d be able to recall all those cheesy pick-up lines you were using. Whatever it is that you’re doing this summer, don’t just let those photos and videos collect dust on your computer – do something with it!
