Top 10 reasons to use Adobe CS5.5 Production Premium
Native support for DSLR cameras
Edit video from the latest DSLR cameras, such as Canon 5D Mark II, 1D Mark IV and 7D; Nikon D90,
D300s, D3000; and others. Instead of inflating files to a proprietary codec, Adobe Premiere Pro reads and
edits the original camera files natively. Native support in Adobe Premiere Pro CS5.5 means you never
waste valuable time transcoding or rewrapping files. While other products can take hours until footage is
ready to edit, Adobe Premiere Pro only needs seconds. No transcoding also means less disk space. There’s
no need to convert when importing, manage separate proxy files or track multiple copies of your media.
Plus, when you need a closer look at your footage, drop clips right off the camera’s memory card into the
timeline. This is a big boost for speed and quality as you can check how your footage will cut together in
the field. You can even check video quality with the built-in waveform monitor and vectorscope inside
Adobe Premiere Pro.
Mix DSLR footage with other formats in an open timeline
Adobe Premiere Pro can play back many DSLR formats in real-time and also offers native support for
other top formats. Edit the latest tapeless formats, including RED, AVCCAM, XDCAM HD 50, DPX, P2, and
XDCAM also without transcoding or rewrapping. Freely mix clips with different frame rates, aspect ratios,
and frame sizes in the same sequence with real-time preview quality on most systems.
Industry-leading, cross-platform performance
Accelerate post-production with native 64-bit performance in Adobe Premiere Pro, After Effects CS5.5,
and Photoshop CS5 Extended, all included in Production Premium. The native 64-bit, multi-core,
GPU-accelerated Mercury Playback Engine provides unprecedented performance and rock-solid stability
in Adobe Premiere Pro. Open projects rapidly and create multi-layer, effects-rich sequences without
rendering. Users see significant performance increases on all hardware but extraordinary performance
boosts with a qualified NVIDIA graphics card.* In After Effects and Photoshop Extended, make the best
use of all available RAM on your system, making it easier to edit complex sequences at HD or higher

Efficient tools for creative editing

editorial effects directly within the timeline. Edit faster with powerful tools that give you precise control
and real-time feedback. Color correct, apply audio filters, and use advanced options like real-time
blending modes, advanced keyframes and bezier curves to stylize your footage. Plus, tight integration
with After Effects means you have a motion graphics and visual effects powerhouse at your fingertips.

Smooth a camera move with Warp Stabilizer
Shooting handheld DSLR footage can often give you shaky results with distracting motion artifacts,
and it’s simply not practical to use a counter-balanced camera rig or keep a dolly or crane ready for
every moving shot. The Warp Stabilizer feature in After Effects CS5.5 provides an innovative
solution that makes hand-held footage look as if it had been shot with a complicated, expensive
camera rig. It can even use pixel analysis to resolve artifacts related to motion and parallax.
Correcting DSLR footage from Adobe Premiere Pro’s timeline is simple when using Adobe® Dynamic
Link, which eliminates intermediate rendering between Adobe Premiere Pro and After Effects.
Industry-leading graphics and effects with tight integration
Bring the creative benefits and explore new possibilities with After Effects and Photoshop
Extended. Create stunning titles with Photoshop Extended or After Effects and animate them with
fully customizable presets. You can even create rich 3D text using the Adobe Repoussé command
in Photoshop CS5 Extended.
In Photoshop Extended, correct lens distortion in your footage to compensate for inherent flaws in
all lenses such as chromatic aberration and vignetting. A flexible cloning and paint engine lets you
remove unwanted objects or repair damage. In After Effects, isolate foreground elements from
backgrounds in a fraction of the time using Roto Brush. For advanced color correction and grading,
use After Effects and Photoshop Extended for nondestructive color grading to create the look you
want in seconds.
Leveraging the tight integration between Adobe Premiere Pro and After Effects, as well as Adobe
Premiere Pro and Encore CS5, use Adobe® Dynamic Link to work faster and stay in the creative flow.
Using the Edit Original command in Adobe Premiere Pro and Encore allows you to quickly update
graphic files quickly in Photoshop Extended.

Open workflows with Final Cut Pro, Avid editing software, and Digidesign Pro Tools

Pro, collaborate more efficiently with colleagues by easily importing and exporting projects
regardless of format. Perform roundtrip editing with content from Avid Media Composer, Apple
Final Cut Pro, or Digidesign Pro Tools software.
Professional audio tools

audio effects and controls built-in to Adobe Premiere Pro as well as support for VST plug-ins. For
advanced audio, get a fast, flexible roundtrip audio workflow with Adobe Audition CS5.5. Pass
individual audio clips and multitrack mixes, or even renderings of complete video sequences,
between Adobe Premiere Pro and Adobe Audition for editing and sweetening. If you’re using a
