Industry-leading performance with the Mercury Playback Engine
The ability to edit HD and higher resolution footage in real time without having to first render it or
lower its resolution by transcoding or rewrapping it with an intermediate codec is a postproduction dream come true. Adobe Premiere Pro CS5 brings that dream to the desktop with the
revolutionary Mercury Playback Engine.
The Mercury Playback Engine provides native 64-bit, GPU-accelerated support for Mac and
Windows, yielding dramatic improvements in performance and stability. You can open projects
faster, scrub through HD and higher resolution projects fluidly, and handle long-form content and
effects-heavy sequences more reliably. Play through most common transitions and effects without
waiting for rendering. Plus, you can usually see results instantly when performing tasks such as
keying with the new Ultra keyer, applying Gaussian blurs and blend modes to footage, applying
multiple color corrections, and working with numerous other effects. The Mercury Playback Engine
also makes rendering for final output much faster than before.
The Mercury Playback Engine works hand in hand with NVIDIA® CUDA™ technology that leverages
the parallel compute engine in NVIDIA graphics processing units (GPUs) to solve many complex
computational problems in a fraction of the time a CPU would take to perform the same task.
In addition, the Mercury Playback Engine takes multitasking to a new level. Utilizing the GPU to
accelerate effects, rendering, and other processor-intensive tasks frees your system’s CPUs to
handle background tasks. The enhanced, native 64-bit system architecture in Adobe Premiere Pro
CS5 lets you use all available system RAM (up to 128GB in today’s computers), so you can run
multiple software applications at the same time. This opens the door to powerful timesaving,
multitasking workflows. For example, you can simultaneously edit a very complex, effects-laden
project in Adobe Premiere Pro while your system’s CPUs render an elaborate After Effects
composition in the background.
Adobe Premiere Pro CS5
sets a new standard in
editing thanks to
the revolutionary
Mercury Playback Engine,
with or without
GPU acceleration.
Without GPU acceleration
With GPU acceleration
The Mercury Playback Engine is being used on a multicore system
with nine layers of DVCPROHD footage being played back in real
time, with color correction and other effects applied. All CPU cores
are being utilized equally, and the timeline can play back smoothly.
When you add GPU acceleration, performance gets even
better. Using GPU acceleration, the same nine-layer timeline
drops the CPU usage down to 5–10%. Even with this
complicated timeline, more layers and ef fects could be
stacked without af fecting real time playback.
Adobe Premiere Pro CS5 What’s New
If you’re working on a computer or laptop that is unable to play back challenging footage such as
4K RED files or sequences with extensive effects, Adobe Premiere Pro CS5 includes the ability to
adjust the playback resolution of your video in the Source Monitor or Program Monitor. Separate
Playback and Pause resolutions give you more control over monitoring—with higher resolution
footage such as 4K, you can set playback resolution to a lower value for smooth performance (for
example ½, 1/4, 1/8, or 1/16 resolution), and set Pause resolution to Full. This allows you to quickly check
the quality of focus or edge details when playback is paused—useful for when you don’t have the
luxury of an on-set HD monitor.
Expand your creative toolset
Expanded native tapeless workflows
Open up more creative possibilities
as you tackle a broad spectrum of
planning, production, and postproduction tasks with Adobe
Creative Suite 5 Production Premium.
Adobe Premiere Pro CS5 builds upon the industry’s best native tapeless workflow by offering new
native format support for Sony XDCAM HD 50, Panasonic AVCCAM, DPX, and AVC-Intra. Native
support for RED R3D files has been enhanced, and native support for video shot with Canon,
Nikon, and other DSLR cameras added. These newly supported formats expand existing support
for variants of Panasonic P2; Sony XDCAM, XDCAM EX, and XDCAM HD; HDV; and AVCHD.
Get more creative power at an
appealing price. In addition to
Adobe Premiere Pro, Encore,
and OnLocation, CS5 Production
Premium offers the latest versions
of Adobe After Effects, Photoshop
Extended, Flash Professional, Flash
Catalyst, Soundbooth, and Illustrator.
When you work with tapeless media in Adobe Premiere Pro, you gain two key advantages. First,
you save time, because with native support you’re able to start working with footage
immediately—sometimes directly from the camera—and thus eliminate the time-consuming
transcoding and rewrapping process typically required when you use the same media in other
NLEs. Second, you maintain the pristine image quality of your source footage throughout the
production process. Native support also means that the metadata coming from the camera
is retained.
Move up to Production Premium to:
Since its introduction in the second half of 2008, Sony XDCAM HD 50 has become the
preferred format used to shoot many popular television shows. Also known as XDCAM HD422,
XDCAM HD 50 delivers 1920x1080 or 1280x720p video at a variety of frame rates. The
intra-frame format is a 4:2:2, 50Mbps variant of MPEG-2 long-GOP compression. You can use
Adobe Premiere Pro to natively edit XDCAM HD 50 footage.

What’s New.
AVC-Intra provides production-quality, full-frame HD video at bit rates normally associated with
ENG (Electronic News Gathering). Developed by Panasonic, AVC-Intra offers twice the compression
efficiency of DVCPROHD. The intra-frame codec provides high-quality 10-bit encoding in two
modes: AVC-Intra 100 for full 1920×1080 4:2:2 mastering and archiving, and AVC-Intra 50 for
DVCPROHD-comparable quality at half the bit rate, doubling the record time on a P2 card and
other storage devices. With Adobe Premiere Pro CS5, you can natively edit AVC-Intra footage and
use Adobe Media Encoder to export AVC-Intra—available as a Panasonic P2 Movie output option.
The latest DSLR cameras from Canon, Nikon, Panasonic, and others include the ability to shoot
full-frame 1920x1080 or 1280x720 HD video. Thanks to their exceptional image quality, low-light
capabilities, and the fact that you can shoot using standard 35mm DSLR lenses that give your
footage the look of expensive film-based cameras, these DSLRs are finding their way into video
productions at all levels. New in Adobe Premiere Pro CS5 is the ability to import and natively edit
video shot with the Canon 5D Mark II and 7D, as well as video shot with the Nikon D90, D300s, and
D3000 DSLR cameras. Similarly, you can import and natively edit AVCHD video shot with
Panasonic DMC-GH1 DSLR cameras, as well as AVCHD video from Sony, Panasonic, and Canon
video cameras. Use the Media Browser panels in Adobe Premiere Pro and OnLocation to
conveniently browse clips and view metadata, including metadata from Panasonic
AVCCAM cameras.
RED Digital Cinema cameras capture extremely high-resolution raw files, enabling digital
production workflows that allow you to make image-processing decisions throughout the
post-production process. Adobe Premiere Pro provides full native support for RED R3D files, allowing
you to import them directly without transcoding, rewrapping, or installing additional software. Because
the files you import contain raw sensor data, you edit footage that is as close to what the camera
captured as possible—enabling you to work nondestructively on the color and look of your projects.
With CS5, you can work with content in all common RED R3D file permutations, including 2K, 3K, 4K,
Adobe Premiere Pro CS5 What’s New
4K HD, 16x9, and 2x1, using a number of different frame rates. Best of all, the Mercury Playback
Engine enables real-time scrubbing and playback of RED R3D 4K and higher resolution files.

New DPX (Digital Picture eXchange) file import and export offers users the ability to natively
edit with 10-bit, uncompressed digital intermediate (DI) files. DPX provides a great deal of
flexibility in storing color and other information, making it a popular film output format. It is
also used for sharing projects between production facilities. In addition, DPX export gives you
the ability to output 4K content directly from Adobe Premiere Pro without having to go
through After Effects. (Previously, the recommended workflow for outputting high-resolution
RED projects was to send Adobe Premiere Pro sequences to After Effects where they could be
output as DPX, Cineon, or other 10-bit formats.)
Adobe Premiere Pro CS5 What’s New
Open audio-editing workflows
Open workflows with Apple Final Cut Pro and Avid editing software
You can expand your Adobe
Premiere Pro audio-editing workflow
with the ability to export audio
as an Open Media Framework
(OMF) file, which can be imported
into Digidesign Pro Tools audio
workstations. Adobe Premiere
Pro also offers tight integration
with Adobe Soundbooth CS5, the
audio-editing solution designed
for video professionals. This allows
you to use Pro Tools for your more
complex audio needs, bring the
final music mix back into Adobe
Premiere Pro, utilize Soundbooth
to clean up and enhance dialogue
tracks, and quickly add sound
effects and atmospheric audio
cues to your projects. The Edit In
Adobe Soundbooth command in
Adobe Premiere Pro lets you send
assets directly to Soundbooth.
After your edits are complete, the
files automatically update in the
Adobe Premiere Pro Timeline panel.
Whether working solo or in a workgroup that’s involved in a large multistudio production, industry
professionals typically use a variety of production and post-production tools on virtually every
project. Moving media and sequences between tools in complex production pipelines often
requires format conversion, specialized plug-ins, tedious workarounds, or a lot of manual work to
recreate elements that don’t transfer. The ability to share projects and assets between Adobe
Premiere Pro and Final Cut Pro, as well as between Adobe Premiere Pro and Avid NLEs such as
Media Composer, means you can share files and timelines without conversion or rendering,
preserving commonly used effects and transition.
When Adobe Premiere Pro is installed as part of
Production Premium, Final Cut Pro or Avid projects
can be easily exchanged between Adobe Premiere
Pro and Apple Final Cut and between Adobe
Premiere Pro and Avid editing software—making it
easy to take advantage of other Production Premium
components in your workflow:

the rest of your edit, without renderings
• Enjoy a smooth Blu-ray Disc authoring workflow. Bring you Final Cut Pro or Avid projects into
Adobe Premiere Pro, and then use Dynamic Link to send the sequence directly to Encore, where
you can author a Blu-ray Disc, DVD, or web DVD. Timeline markers in the sequence act as chapter
markers in Encore
• Leverage the robust Adobe metadata workflow. Use Speech Search and other metadata
features to add intelligence to your assets—metadata can be used downstream to engage
viewers in new ways, from web-based DVDs to rich Internet experiences
Open workflows give video pros more flexibility when working in large teams, and they make
it easy to tap into the power of Production Premium on any project.
Adobe Premiere Pro CS5 What’s New
About metadata
Faster editing with metadata
Metadata describes the content or
characteristics of a file, and is stored
using the Extensible Metadata
Platform (XMP) standard. With XMP
metadata-enabled Adobe Creative
Suite 5 Production Premium components, meaningful descriptions and
titles, searchable keywords, and
copyright information can be automatically captured and embedded in
the file using a format that is easily
Metadata plays an essential role in helping efficiently manage and locate media assets throughout
the production process. It lets you automatically track crucial details such as where a clip was shot,
who’s in it, and whether you have the rights to use it in your project. Innovative new metadata
features enable the new script-to-screen workflow in Adobe Premiere Pro, bringing new
efficiencies to the editing and production process.
understood by you as well as by
software applications and hardware
devices. And as an open-source and
extensible technology, XMP is freely
available to developers and provides
industry partners with standardsbased building blocks to develop
optimized workflow solutions.
Metadata can be created automatically and supplemented manually at any stage of production. For
example, at the start of your project, a script written with Adobe Story, a new CS Live online
service*, captures vital information and stores it as metadata that can be imported into OnLocation.
While you’re recording footage directly to disk, OnLocation automatically captures all of the
important metadata coming from the camera. Comments you make in the OnLocation Shot List
are also stored with each clip as metadata. When clips are imported into Adobe Premiere Pro and
other components of CS5 Production Premium, metadata is retained in each application.
During post-production, metadata streamlines searching for clips while you edit. With metadata,
you can quickly locate media assets and clips by filename, date, time, camera setting (such as
resolution or frame rate), shot location, or any information you’ve added to your asset or clip. And
when you run Speech Search in Adobe Premiere Pro, you can transcribe spoken dialogue that is
converted into metadata, making locating particular footage simple.
Speech Search metadata. Speech Search is now more accurate, because you can now import
reference scripts to assist the speech-to-text analysis process. If your production started with a
written script that matches the spoken dialogue in your clips, you can use Speech Search to
timecode-align the written script and spoken dialogue so they match exactly. Documentary
filmmakers and others whose productions don’t start with a written script can use reference
scripts, manuals, text books, notes, or other written materials containing words and dialogue
similar to the project’s recorded content or manually created transcriptions of interview sound
bites. In addition, multiple processor cores in your CPU accelerate the speech-to-text process,
making it faster than before.
Best of all, by marking In and Out points in the speech analysis text and then using the Insert
or Overlay button to cut the clip into the timeline, you can quickly create preliminary rough
cuts—even without paying close attention to the content’s details. Post-production
professionals and anyone working in quick-turnaround operations, such as television newsgathering or same-day event video edits, can benefit from this time-saver.
Face Detection metadata. Save even more time with Face Detection—another content-analysis
process you can run on clips in your project to quickly locate those with human faces in them.
Because these clips are more likely to contain spoken dialogue, Face Detection eliminates the
painstaking process of having to play through each clip in a project to find interview sound
bites. (Face Detection should not be confused with facial recognition—that is, the ability to
recognize a specific person’s face within footage.)
New metadata templates in Adobe Media Encoder help ensure that only metadata that has been
cleared for distribution gets included with your projects at final output. Finally, when your project is
delivered online, the same metadata you used to edit the project more quickly makes it easier for
your audience to find your content. And when you deliver your DVD and Blu-ray Disc projects as
web DVDs, metadata makes the web DVD content automatically searchable.

Adobe Premiere Pro CS5 What’s New
Cutting-edge storytelling with new Adobe Story (available separately)
Adobe Story, a new CS Live online service* for scriptwriting, can help accelerate the process of
turning screenplays into finished media. Available separately from Production Premium, the tight
integration of Adobe Story with CS5 Production Premium extends the benefits of Adobe Story
into broader parts of the production and post-production workflow.
As a screenwriting tool, Adobe Story enables you to craft your scripts from virtually anywhere in a
safe offline or online writing environment. You and your colleagues can collaboratively co-write
and edit scripts at any time and assign roles to various team members, such as read-only mode or
review-only mode. Adobe Story makes it easy to write and maintain your script in standard
industry format, while also offering the option to import existing screenplays or sample scripts
from Final Draft, Movie Magic Screenwriter, and Microsoft Word.
Adobe Story offers a Project view to help you organize your work by displaying all of your scripts,
character biographies, reference links, and free-form documents in one place, making it easy to
manage several projects simultaneously. As you develop a script, Adobe Story keeps track of
character names, locations, and more using the Smart Type feature.
When you find yourself inserting commonly used script elements, Smart Type automatically
displays these common selections to help you populate content more efficiently. Elements used
in the script’s formatting are captured as metadata to help streamline production and postproduction.
The Formatting toolbar provides familiar
word-processor-like controls. In addition,
Story supports keyboard commands for fast,
efficient navigation.
Use up to six color-coded
dots to identify the

recording, logging, and monitoring software. Metadata created in Adobe Story* helps you
manage your shoot with automatically generated shot lists and efficient logging. Additionally,
* Adobe CS Live online services are complimentary for a limited time. See the last page for details and limitations related to all Adobe
online services.
Adobe Premiere Pro CS5 What’s New
dialogue from the script and other metadata is embedded into the shots you log in OnLocation.
When you later import your footage into Adobe Premiere Pro, you can synchronize your Adobe
Story script to that footage, making it possible to quickly produce preliminary rough cuts based on
the dialogue transcript. Further, metadata in the assets are retained throughout the production
workflow and can be passed through to Encore, where it can be used as the basis for DVD and
Blu-ray Disc chapter titles. When you deliver your Encore projects as web DVDs, the script
metadata makes the web DVD content searchable.
Turn video assets into engaging online experiences, with or without a script. As an alternative to
starting with a screenplay, you can also use Adobe Premiere Pro integration with Adobe Story* to
turn previously completed or unscripted video assets into engaging online experiences. This is
useful for unscripted content such as documentaries, corporate productions, and live events such
as conferences and lectures.
To do this, create a transcription of your finished video, which functions much like a script. Next,
create a new Adobe Story project, and then copy and paste that transcription into it, producing a
new Adobe Story script. Using the text from the transcription, you can then break the text into
scenes that serve as major points in the video, such as key themes in a lecture or particular proof
points in a corporate video. You then add additional metadata for each section, for example, a
short description of that scene’s key points (e.g., “This section of the lecture covers Newton’s laws
of mechanics”).
When you’re satisfied with your segmented video, for better online navigation, you can create
subclips from the finished video to match the scenes you’ve outlined. Then import your Adobe
Story script and the subclips into OnLocation. The script data automatically creates placeholder
clips that you can then attach to the clips from the finished asset. In OnLocation, you can also add
additional metadata to your clips, such as shot-specific metadata and shot locations to your clips.
Next, you can import the OnLocation project into Adobe Premiere Pro, and run an analysis to
synchronize the script to footage to enable full, time-accurate searchability. You can edit the clips
as you normally would, and Adobe Premiere Pro keeps everything lined up correctly, so that when
you render the video using Adobe Media Encoder, for example into F4V or FLV, the metadata-rich
assets are ready to be searched using Encore’s searchable web DVD features.
Small improvements that make a big difference
Take advantage of user-requested enhancements and enjoy more efficient workflows. For
example, with Adobe Premiere Pro CS5 you can:
• Create a new sequence from footage by simply dragging a clip onto the New Sequence button in
Adobe Premiere Pro. This convenient feature helps save time by automatically matching sequence
settings and footage attributes
• Use automatic scene detection to create separate clips from HDV tapes
• Import assets from DVDs
• Quickly export a still video frame from the Program Monitor or Source Monitor using the Export
frame button without having to initiate an export with Adobe Media Encoder
• Set the Source Monitor and Program Monitor to display the first field, second field, or both fields
for interlaced footage
• Edit more efficiently with a keyboard shortcut that lets you extend the duration of a clip on a
targeted track to the current position on the timeline
• Clean up your sequences quickly with commands for finding and removing gaps between clips on
the timeline
Adobe Premiere Pro CS5 What’s New
Adobe CS Review will not be available for Adobe Premiere Pro CS5
when the software initially ships.
Adobe Premiere Pro CS5 users
will automatically receive access
to CS Review integration when it
becomes available later in 2010.
Integration with CS Review
Clients, project managers, and members of production teams don’t always work in the same
location, in the same city, or even in the same country. CS Review, a new CS Live online service*,
provides a fast and simple way for teammates and clients to take part in reviewing video
sequences, using just a web browser and easy-to-use annotation tools.
Thanks to its integration with Adobe Premiere Pro, unlike other services that offer online review of
creative content, CS Review lets you publish a review to the web directly from within Adobe
Premiere Pro. Encode sequences in the background and automatically upload them for review and
collaboration. When comments are made by colleagues and clients viewing the content in a web
browser, comments are dynamically captured and displayed directly in the new Review panel in
Adobe Premiere Pro alongside the sequence they relate to. Jump directly to comments in the
timeline to efficiently match feedback to specific elements and keep track of review comments in
one location.
Because reviews are accessed simply through a web browser, CS Review brings your teammates
and clients into the review process in near-real time. When you need to view or archive reviews
offline, they can be easily saved as JPG or FLV files.
With CS Review, you can apply password protection to your content, and assign roles to determine
who can create a new review, make and respond to comments, or just read comments. The ability
to set deadlines, track reviewer participation, and view comments as they are posted help you
further manage the review process.

Adobe Premiere Pro CS5 What’s New
Efficient production and tapeless camera support in Adobe OnLocation CS5
Adobe OnLocation CS5 provides an impressive array of production tools to help you shoot better
and faster while saving time and money, both on set and off. New support for tapeless cameras
extend the ways you can use OnLocation in your production workflows.
Spot problems in imported tapeless footage. Thanks to new tapeless camera support, you can
use the comprehensive software waveform monitor and vectorscope as well as the audio spectrum
analyzer in OnLocation to identify image and audio problems in imported files by quickly scanning
your footage for audio pops, clipping, and video overbrights.
Logging with tapeless cameras. Get all the benefits of real-time, on-set logging when working with
tapeless cameras. Simply tell OnLocation which shot is currently recording and then enter notes,
comments, and additional metadata into placeholder clips. Using timecode as a reference, OnLocation
automatically matches the information to the recorded clips when they are imported from the tapeless
media, regardless of whether the camera is tethered to OnLocation on-set or whether the clips are
imported during post-production.
Faster logging with Turbo Comments. While recording, the new Turbo Comments feature lets you add
frequently used words—cast names, sports highlights, and so on—with a single keystroke to log live
action accurately, consistently, and efficiently. OnLocation lets you store up to nine comments with
unique shortcuts, for immediate, timecode-accurate logging.
Audio level meters help you keep track of your audio
signal so it doesn’t distort, and pop alerts identify when
sudden surges occur that are too short to register on
The Waveform Monitor operates in
YUV or RGB color spaces, so you can
evaluate brightness (luminance) and
saturation levels.
The Vectorscope displays the amount
of color in the video signal for either the
full frame or for a single horizontal line
within a frame.
The Field Monitor displays DV, HDV,
and DVCPRO natively, so unlike your
camera’s viewfinder or LCD screen, the
Field Monitor displays video
exactly as it is recorded.
Comment markers are displayed in
the Field Monitor timeline.
The new Timestamp button tells
OnLocation when the selected shot
is being recorded, whether or not the
camera is connected to OnLocation.
When tapeless media is imported,
OnLocation automatically matches the
information to the recorded clips.
The Shot List in the Project panel lets you keep track of
locations, In and Out point timecode, and other vital
information, comment on clips, describe and catalog each
shot, indicate camera moves, and automatically capture
information coming from the camera.
The new Media Browser panel displays the contents of your
computer drives. The Media Browser understands the
standard Panasonic P2 and Sony XDCAM directory structure,
so when you browse to a P2 directory, the Media Browser
displays only the importable shots/takes. Likewise, when
you navigate to an XDCAM directory, the Media Browser
displays the importable clips. This saves you from having to
search through the directory structure to find the content
you want to import.
Adobe Premiere Pro CS5 What’s New
Browsing tapeless content. The new Media Browser panel in Adobe OnLocation CS5 lets you
browse the contents of tapeless cameras without needing to understand camera file-naming
conventions. The Media Browser panel operates in the same way as in Adobe Premiere Pro,
displaying media clips along with their metadata and information specific to OnLocation, such
as take number, shot quality rating, and so on. Use the Media Browser panel to check the
contents of tapeless camera media without having to copy it to your hard drive or import
content into your OnLocation project. Direct browsing allows you to open up the content and
play it in the OnLocation Field Monitor. When you find the files you’re looking for, you can
quickly import them into your OnLocation project. As you play and scrub through your video
files in the Field Monitor, add In and Out points using the fast, intuitive OnLocation interface.
Export sub-projects with just the takes you want. Particularly useful when working on a long,
complicated shoot, OnLocation makes it easy to organize your media by splitting the project into
sub-projects. This also lets you pre-sort the clips in your project—when you’re ready to export clips
to Adobe Premiere Pro, with a few simple clicks you can create a sub-project that only includes the
takes that you select. Access the sub-project’s folder from the Media Browser panel in Adobe
Premiere Pro and import the clips. When dropped into a sequence, clips that include In and Out
points marked in OnLocation form a pre-edited rough cut. When you send your Onlocation project
directly to Adobe Premiere Pro, your assets retain the metadata captured from your Adobe Story
script, along with metadata created when you logged your clips during the live shoot.
Publish your OnLocation Shot Lists. Keep everyone up to date during production by
publishing your OnLocation Shot List. OnLocation creates a CSV file, and makes it simple to
control which Shot List items and particulars are included. This allows the information to be
viewed on a variety of software and devices, including the Apple iPod Touch and the Apple
iPhone, letting you easily distribute shot lists to crew members on or off set.
Other timesaving enhancements in Adobe OnLocation CS5 include the ability to:
• Import Adobe Story scripts, automatically capturing vital information as metadata to streamline
the creation of shot lists (see Script-to-Screen Workflows on page 6 for details)
About Adobe OnLocation
Shot- and Take-recording modes
Adobe OnLocation provides separate recording modes that address
two different working styles:
•Shot-recording mode creates a shot with entirely unique metadata properties (such as Clip Name, Location, and Scene)
•Take-recording mode creates a take that inherits metadata properties from the currently selected shot
* The new Break Out Scene feature allows you to quickly create multiple duplicates of a given take placeholder, and assign different shot sizes to each duplicate
• Switch between Take- and Shot-recording modes using a dedicated control in the Shot List that
provides immediate visual confirmation of the current mode
• Organize the view in the Shot List to more effectively find what you’re looking for using a
number of improvements, including the ability to sort on any column and search based on
any metadata attribute
• Manage shots more efficiently using options to break out scenes into multiple shots and camera
angles—OnLocation makes sure all appropriate metadata is transferred across to the new items,
and updates information where necessary
• Reconnect media files to items in the OnLocation project quickly and easily when file references
get broken
• Create more space in the OnLocation user interface by choosing from four thumbnail sizes
options in the Shot List
• Pick up where you left off more quickly with an option to reopen the last project automatically
every time you launch OnLocation
• Use keyboard entry to navigate and edit metadata quickly in the Shot List
• Find clips by sight more efficiently by assigning a poster frame for each clip

About chroma keying
Ultra keyer
Chroma keying is the process of selectively removing (“keying out”)
all of the pixels in an image that are a particular color (“chroma”) and
replacing them with another image.
Television weather reports use
keying to make meteorologists
appear as if they are standing in front
of a weather map, when they are
actually standing in front of a blue- or greenscreen.
Chroma keying has typically been a tedious, time-consuming process—one that Ultra, the
powerful high-performance keyer now included in Adobe Premiere Pro CS5 makes fast and
painless. Normally, when shooting footage to be keyed, you must evenly light the background
screen so it is a single, uniform shade of whatever color you are keying out of the scene. You must
also take care to eliminate color spill—reflections of the background screen that “spill” back onto
actors and other objects. When manually adjusting your keys, fine detail around the edges of
objects—for example, hair—need to be carefully identified so they can be separated from the
background in a believable manner. Using Ultra, you can achieve fast, accurate keying on even the
most challenging DV and HD footage. The GPU-accelerated Mercury Playback Engine dramatically
increases performance, usually resulting in real-time HD keying.
Designed to handle footage shot under real-world conditions that result in uneven lighting,
wrinkled backgrounds, and frizzy hair—Ultra preserves shadows and can achieve complex keys on
smoke, liquids, and transparent objects. Intuitive, easy-to-use controls make pulling accurate keys
a breeze.
Ultra, the new keyer in Adobe Premiere Pro, is
optimized to handle real-world greenscreen
conditions. Using simple, intuitive controls,
you can pull a high-quality key quickly.
Parameters can be animated to accommodate
changing conditions.
Adobe Premiere Pro CS5 What’s New
Streamlined encoding with revamped Adobe Media Encoder
With the explosive growth of video on the Internet, there’s been a massive shift in how people
consume video entertainment. Whether you produce instructional videos, trailers for your
independently produced films, or music videos for viewing online or on iPods, distribute your work
on YouTube, Vimeo, or Hulu, or output it to broadcast playout servers, being able to efficiently
deliver your content in a variety of formats is crucial. Adobe Media Encoder, a separate, 64-bit
software application included with Adobe Premiere Pro CS5, saves you time by streamlining the
process of creating multiple encoded versions of your source files and Adobe Premiere Pro
sequences. Adobe Media Encoder features a more intuitive user interface, providing more visual
feedback to help you work faster. Save time with the new ability to start the encoding process
directly from Adobe Premiere Pro without going to the batch list. Set up multiple items for batch
encoding, manage priorities, and control advanced settings for each item individually. Batch
encoding lets you use any combination of sequences and clips as sources and encode to a wide
variety of video formats, including FLV, F4V, Windows Media, QuickTime, and other popular codecs
such as MPEG-2, MPEG-4, H.264, and—new in Adobe Premiere Pro CS5—AVC-Intra and DPX.
Adobe Media Encoder features
enhancements that streamline the
encoding process, including the
ability to:
• Get more visual feedback. The
Settings Summary dialog box
displays information about both
output and source footage, and
new tooltips summarize the
output settings for the selected
encoding preset or source assets.
• Automatically match TV Standard, Frame Rate, Field Order,
and Pixel Aspect Ratio properties
of source footage using a new
setting called Automatic. For
example, if the source is 1080p
Adobe Media Encoder now displays the video asset being transcoded. Notice

that in this encoding batch, a single source file is being output in a variety of
formats and resolutions for archival, web, broadcast, and mobile delivery.
automatically be set to Progressive. The Automatic setting
affects video output in H.264 Blu-ray Disc, MPEG-2–Blu-ray Disc, and MPEG-2–DVD formats.
• Set bit rate based on frame dimensions when outputting footage to FLV, F4V, H.264 Blu-ray Disc,
and MPEG-2 Blu-ray Disc formats. Choosing Video > Bit Rate Level lets you set the output bit rate
to any value or to a value automatically determined by the frame dimensions of source footage.
• Change the frame rate, pixel aspect ratio, field order, or alpha channel settings when importing
clips into Adobe Media Encoder using the Interpret Footage command.
• Add XMP cue points to the output file from metadata in FLV or F4V source files. A new preference
setting controls whether source cue points are used when invoking the Settings dialog box or
while encoding.
• Help ensure that content is output with the right metadata. Use templates in the Export Settings
dialog box to add essential details to media assets in a consistent manner, and to make certain
that only cleared-for-distribution metadata is included in your final output.
• Save time by exporting media directly from Adobe Premiere Pro without first adding it to the
Adobe Media Encoder queue. You can still add clips to the Adobe Media Encoder queue by
clicking Queue in the Export Settings dialog box in Adobe Premiere Pro.
Adobe Premiere Pro CS5 What’s New
About web DVDs
Searchable web DVDs and other enhancements in Adobe Encore CS5
Web DVDs replicate their DVD or Blu-ray Disc counterparts online in a
web browser by including interactive
menus and subtitles, as well as pop-up
menus and (for those based on Blu-ray
Disc projects) high-resolution video.
Adobe Encore CS5 software is a versatile, interactive authoring tool for video distribution that
allows you to deliver your projects beyond DVD and Blu-ray Disc. In a single operation, you
can easily turn your DVD and Blu-ray Disc projects into web DVDs that now include a search
interface. The new interface gives viewers a more engaging experience by enabling them to
search within a web DVD using keywords. During authoring, Encore automatically creates a
search database using metadata from speech-analysis text, subtitles in timelines and
slideshows, and menu and button names.
Adobe Encore CS5 automatically creates an interface that lets viewers search within a web DVD. Search results are displayed
across the bottom of the screen.
Also new in Encore CS5 is the ability to:
• Further enhance the viewing experience by creating web DVDs with a sleek, customizable
playback interface that features easy-to-use playback controls and the option to watch HD video
in full-screen mode.
• Create a smoother experience for viewers when they choose from options across multiple menus
on Blu-ray Discs. Browsable multipage menus show options across multiple menu pages without
interrupting the playback of audio and video background elements. Multipage menus can be
easily created in Adobe Photoshop or directly in Encore.
• Working in the Adobe Premiere Pro timeline, you can take 4K projects directly to high-definition
Blu-ray Discs using a workflow that maintains the original 4K content all the way to output, when
it is finally encoded and scaled. This capability is especially meaningful to video editors and
motion graphics and visual effects artists who work on projects at film resolutions.
• Experienced Encore users will appreciate the ability to share Encore CS5 projects without
worrying about platform compatibility. Encore projects can be moved between Windows and
Mac platforms freely, without conversion. Editors and motion graphics and effects artists can
benefit from native 24p project support for Blu-ray Disc, DVD, and web DVD titles, complete with
24p timecode in the timeline. (Previously, Encore placed all assets in timelines with a default
frame rate of 29.97, irrespective of the properties of the assets.)
• Continue authoring while you transcode your media assets. Adobe Media Encoder, a separate,
64-bit software application, encodes your files in the background, freeing Encore to process your
authoring tasks. This separation of authoring and encoding is particularly important with 4K
workflows, which can be taxing on your computer.
Adobe Premiere Pro CS5 What’s New
Better media management with
Adobe Bridge CS5
Whether you are a video editor,
photographer, or cross-media
creative, you can manage your
content more efficiently with these
new or enhanced features in Bridge CS5:
•Centralized access to project files and global settings, as well as to XMP metadata tagging and searching capabilities
•Flexible batch renaming, including savable presets of regularly used settings
•Faster navigation between open folders with an improved Path bar
•Precise adjustment of the size and quality of images in the Web Gallery
•A Publish panel with simple options to output files to disc and upload images to popular sharing sites
Expand your creative options with the ability to choose the right encoder for the job without
sacrificing workflow efficiency. Use third-party encoders within the integrated Encore authoring
workflow and take advantage of the latest advancements in GPU-accelerated encoding.
When delivering your DVD and Blu-ray Disc projects to a replication facility, previous versions of
Encore required extra hardware to write your master to DLT (Digital Linear Tape). In Encore CS5, a
DDP (Disc Description Protocol) image can be directly exported to your computer’s hard disk and
electronically delivered to the replication facility using FTP. Delivery through electronic media is
faster, and doesn’t involve the extra hardware associated with DLT.
Still using Adobe Premiere Pro CS3?
For those still using Adobe Premiere Pro CS3, upgrading to Adobe Premiere Pro CS5 also gives you
the chance to catch up on all the great features added in Adobe Premiere Pro CS4. These include
tighter tool integration, support for more video formats, and workflow enhancements that
accelerate turnaround times, as well as the following:
• Batch encoding in the background. Save time with Adobe Media Encoder, a separate included
software application that automates the process of creating multiple encoded versions of your
source files and sequences
• End-to-End metadata workflow. For greater project intelligence, easily add metadata to clips
both on set with Adobe OnLocation software and while editing using Adobe Premiere Pro
• Speech Search. Turn spoken dialogue into text-based, timecode-accurate, searchable metadata
• Dynamic workflow with other Adobe tools. Using Dynamic Link, eliminate intermediate
rendering when moving sequences into Adobe Encore software, and take advantage of new
support for Adobe Photoshop files with video and blend modes
• Industry-leading Blu-ray Disc authoring. Create high-definition Blu-ray Discs by using Encore,
working with the same interface used to create standard-definition DVDs and incorporating
advanced Blu-ray Disc features like pop-up menus, subtitles, and dual-layer burning
• Editing efficiency. Apply effects to multiple selections, get timecode information faster, speed
work in the timeline with new keyboard shortcuts, and more
