Adobe Audition for advanced audio editing and
restoration, then roundtrip back to Adobe Premiere Pro.
Like Adobe Premiere Pro, Audition can exchange projects
with Final Cut Pro and other NLEs, to simplify integration
with larger workflows.
Warp Stabilizer effect in After Effects
In professional video productions, handheld cameras are commonly stabilized with hardware such
as a Steadicam. However, with video cameras appearing in more diverse and versatile forms—from
mobile phones to sports helmet cameras and digital SLRs—it isn’t always practical or affordable to
use a professional camera stabilizer. While image stabilization features can be found in other video
production software, they typically correct camera position only, betraying the fact that the footage
was originally handheld, and resulting in artifacts that compromise the quality of the footage. In the
new Warp Stabilizer, After Effects takes an innovative approach to removing camera shake called
Subspace Warp. Going beyond stabilizing just camera position, the new Subspace Warp option
uses advanced pixel analysis to also correct camera rotation, rolling shutter artifacts, and parallax
effects. The resulting stabilized clip can make handheld footage appear as steady and smooth as if
shot from a camera mounted on a mechanical stabilizer.
‡ Photoshop CS5 or Photoshop CS5
Extended (version 12.0.4 or later) and wireless Internet connection required. Mobile
and tablet applications require a separate
download and agreement to additional
terms. Such applications may not be available in all countries or languages and may
be subject to change or discontinuation
without notice. Additional fees or subscription charges may apply.
After Effects displays a
frame overlay to show
that it’s automatically
analyzing the shot—the
first step in stabilization.
You can see a preliminary result in just one step: Apply Warp Stabilizer to the source layer, and let
After Effects perform analysis and stabilization. Analysis begins automatically without having to set
tracking points or make any decisions whatsoever. Stabilization progress is displayed onscreen in
two steps, first analyzing and then stabilizing. When the second step is complete, you can review
the result immediately.
Adobe Creative Suite 5.5 Production Premium What’s New

The Warp Stabilizer effect gives you a significant amount of control. Choose the default Subspace
Warp method to correct Perspective, Position and Scale—or choose other options to correct
various combinations of Position, Scale, Rotation, and Perspective. You can also control how the
Warp Stabilizer effect resolves empty space that results at the edge of the frame when the
stabilizing process repositions or transforms the image, by setting a threshold for automatically
cropping the frame or by letting the effect intelligently fill empty spaces using information in
adjacent frames.
Warp Stabilizer offers considerable control over the automated result without creating actual keyframes in the timeline. The
Subspace Warp option, chosen by default, performs pixel analysis to correct for motion artifacts including parallax shifts.
64-bit operating system required
Enhanced Adobe Mercury Playback Engine for desktops and laptops
Adobe Premiere Pro CS5.5 and After
Effects CS5.5 run only on 64-bit
operating systems, such as Mac OS X
10.5 or later, Microsoft® Windows
Vista®64-bit Edition, or Windows 7
64-bit Edition. Adobe Media Encoder
supports both 64-bit and 32-bit
versions of Windows, and like both
After Effects and Adobe Premiere

Faster, more reliable encoding to multiple screens with revamped
Adobe Media Encoder
Reaching audiences wherever they are and on whatever device they wish to use to view video is an
essential requirement of video production today. Optimized for performance, 64-bit Adobe Media
Encoder is completely redesigned to deliver Adobe Premiere Pro video sequences, After Effects
compositions, and Encore projects to multiple formats quickly, simply, and in the background. You
can still export directly from Adobe Premiere Pro or render from After Effects using the Render
Queue, but with Adobe Media Encoder you can maintain your creative momentum by continuing
to work in other applications as your projects render in the background.
Set up for encoding by simply dragging an item into the Adobe Media Encoder window. Next,
simply choose from clearly labeled presets designed for common types of video output, including
the web and smartphones. Of course, you can customize the presets to meet your requirements.
Helpful contextual menus make it easy to inspect or edit items in the Queue. Once you start the
Queue, Adobe Media Encoder quickly encodes your sequence in the background, taking advantage
of multiple CPU cores. There’s no need for you to keep an eye on Adobe Media Encoder; it can play
specific alert sounds to indicate when a render completes successfully or not. You’re free to
concentrate on editing while Adobe Media Encoder works behind your other applications.
Adobe Premiere Pro CS5 5.0.3 introduced support for mobile graphics cards in Windows.

To make it easier to output your work to virtually any video and device format, the new Adobe Media Encoder user interface
includes three sections—the Queue pane, the Current Encode pane, and the Watch Folders pane. The batch queue at the top
shows you the status of multiple renders, while the Current Encode pane displays details of the job that’s currently processing.
This updated design makes it easy to monitor multiple background renders at a glance while you continue working in Adobe
Premiere Pro, After Effects, and Encore.
Adobe Media Encoder supports a wide range of output formats, including FLV, F4V, Windows
Media, QuickTime, and other popular codecs such as MPEG-2, MPEG-4, H.264, and—new for
Adobe Media Encoder CS5.5—AVC-Intra and DPX.
Automate your workflow further using watch folders, new in Adobe Media Encoder CS5.5. You can
configure watch folders with different encoding settings, so that encoding a clip to multiple
destinations is as easy as dropping it in a preconfigured watch folder.
Edit file-based media right away
thanks to native support
With native support for file-based
media, you can begin editing virtually
any video format—no transcoding
or rewrapping—including DV, HDV,
RED, DPX, Sony XDCAM, XDCAM
50, XDCAM EX and XDCAM HD,
Panasonic P2, DVCPRO HD, AVCHD,
and AVC-Intra. Edit video from DSLR
cameras, including the Canon 5D
Mark II and 7D, Nikon D90, D300s,
D3000, and others.
Expanded native support for RAW digital cinema and file-based workflows
Building on its industry-leading native support of file-based media, CS5.5 Production Premium
expands the flexibility of your workflow when working with RAW digital cinema files and other
file-based footage in Adobe Premiere Pro CS5.5 and After Effects CS5.5.
Now you have new options for adjusting RED source settings right in Adobe Premiere Pro CS5.5
and After Effects CS5.5.§ These settings help make CS5.5 Production Premium an even better
choice for on-site workflows and dailies when working with RED content, because they offer deep
control over crucial color settings. In addition to the ability to save and load the latest versions of
RMD—as well as the ability to create custom presets—you can now pick a white point and use
either a histogram or a five-point curves interface to adjust red, green, blue, RGB, or Luma values
for a clip. You can choose which Color Science version is used, and FLUTs, Lift, Gamma, and Gain
settings are all now supported. Adobe Premiere Pro CS5.5 and After Effects CS5.5 offer additional
enhancements to improve your overall RED workflow, including the timesaving ability to apply
source settings to multiple clips. Additionally, when you open the redesigned RED Source Settings
dialog box, it remembers which options you displayed in the previous session.
Adobe Premiere Pro CS5.5 also offers enhanced native support for Canon XF footage. Now you can
view Canon XF files—including spanned clips—in the Adobe Premiere Pro Media Browser, preview
XF footage in the Project panel, view and edit camera metadata in the Metadata panel, and take
advantage of metadata throughout your pre- and post-production workflows. In After Effects, you
can now import CinemaDNG files and export XDCAM-EX footage.
§
Adobe Premiere Pro CS5 5.0.2 included enhancements for the RED Rocket card and Color Science, and introduced support for
exporting in XDCAM-HD format. After Effects CS5 10.0.1 added support for RMD and RED file formats.

Camera Lens Blur effect and camera property for realistic defocused blur
Camera lens blur re-creates in post-production the abstract and often visually appealing
characteristics that appear in the defocused areas of a camera image. With this effect, footage shot
in perfect focus can take on the elegant visual attributes of a soft-focus image. You can apply this
look with the new Camera Lens Blur effect or generate it automatically using the Depth of Field
controls in an After Effects camera.
In soft-focus areas, Camera Lens Blur creates edge halos in the shape of the iris blades, just as a
real, defocused camera lens does. When you choose an iris shape (from triangle up to decagon,
representing the number of blades), additional options appear so that you can specify the exact
characteristics of the iris.
What is bokeh?
“Bokeh” is a term originally coined in
Japan for the qualities of defocused
light areas as seen through a lens.
Points of light become “circles of
confusion”—bright disks that take
on the shape of the camera iris—as
seen in many cinematic night shots.
Although occasionally regarded as
a flaw, bokeh is more often viewed
as a lovely and desirable way to introduce visual interest using shallow
depth of field.
Bokeh blur is the natural result when light highlights appear in the defocused area of an image, but many blur features don’t
account for this. The depth-of-field effects on the right bring focus to the face by making the foreground appear defocused.
While Camera Lens Blur is a layer effect, you can also apply the same attributes to After Effects
cameras for more realistic depth-of-field effects when creating 3D compositions. In a 3D layer, you
can animate Camera Lens Blur properties such as Aperture and Distance to perform rack focusing
in 3D space. With the Camera Lens Blur effect, you can also create computer-generated elements
that composite more convincingly with live-action footage.
Adobe Creative Suite 5.5 Production Premium What’s New
7
Enabling depth-of-field blur with the
After Effects camera activates camera
blur controls, such as the Highlight
option with Gain and Threshold
parameters and the Iris option with a
Shape parameter. The amount of blur is
determined by the focus distance and
aperture settings, like an actual lens.
In a 2D scene, you can apply a separate layer as a grayscale map to create depth-of-field effects, or
apply the effect without a map to defocus the entire scene equally. You can create rack focus
effects by adjusting the focal distance setting, converting whichever channel values you specify to
grayscale values that correspond to depth. You can use such a map to simulate other types of
shallow focus, such as that of a tilt-shift lens.
Direct Adobe Premiere Pro integration with Adobe Story
In Adobe Premiere Pro CS5.5, you can move
through the production pipeline more quickly
thanks to direct integration with Adobe Story, an
Adobe CS Live online service* † that serves as a

Light Falloff property in After Effects
In the real world, light intensity diminishes naturally the further objects are from the light source.
After Effects now gives you the controls you need to simulate natural illumination falloff in a 3D
scene—or create other light intensity effects, if so desired. Choose the Inverse-Square falloff
setting to re-create the real-world decay of light over distance, in which light intensity naturally falls
off by the square of the inverse distance. The smooth falloff setting lets you specify the exact
distance over which light levels decay. With either setting, you can determine at what distance (in
pixels) light falloff starts and ends. The same four basic choices of light type previously offered in
After Effects—Parallel, Spot, Point, and Ambient—all remain, with each type (except Ambient,
Adobe Creative Suite 5.5 Production Premium What’s New

which is equal at all positions and thus does not decay) supporting both types of falloff. You can
mix light types, intensities, and shadow casting settings the same way you could in previous
releases of After Effects.

you get welcome workflow flexibility with improved integration, no matter which platform you’re
using. Improved roundtrip editing capabilities with Apple Final Cut Pro make it easier to collaborate
on projects in which teammates, clients, or other production facilities utilize a variety of editing and
post-production software tools. For example, when you import and export project files between
Adobe Premiere Pro CS5.5 and Final Cut Pro, you can adjust the volume on Stereo As Mono clips,
and adjust the scaling of a clip when its pixel aspect ratio (PAR) is different from that of the
sequence. Additionally, you can export clips that have been modified by the 3-Way ColorCorrector, retaining approximate settings, which helps to eliminate guesswork associated with
manually re-creating color-correction results that previously did not transfer with the media asset.
Multi-target project setup in Flash Professional
Digital content now permeates a full range of viewing experiences, including smartphones,
personal computers, and Internet-enabled televisions. With the new multiple-target management
features in Flash Professional CS5.5, you can create Flash content once and deploy it virtually
anywhere. Mobile device support includes Adobe Flash Player, Android™, iOS, and Adobe AIR®.
Targeting multiple devices means you have to manage multiple FLA files for a single project. This
process is streamlined in Adobe Flash Professional CS5.5 so that you can deploy content
seamlessly across platforms and devices. For example, Flash Professional CS5.5 now includes 20
new code snippets for mobile devices. You can efficiently create, test, package, and deploy content
