A more efficient video editing workflow
Adobe Premiere Pro CS5.5 includes a wide variety of new features and enhancements that take
editing efficiency to a new level. Trim and edit quickly and with more precision. Use widely
accepted nonlinear editing (NLE) shortcuts and easily sync separately recorded field audio with

can customize to suit your project.
• Assign keyboard shortcuts faster and find what you need in the redesigned Keyboard Shortcuts
dialog box, which now shows your shortcuts along with clip, sequence, and In/Out markers.
• Enjoy easier access to updated keyboard layout presets for Avid Media Composer and Final Cut
Pro-style shortcuts.
Dual-system sound
Increasingly, video productions incorporate dual-system
sound in their audio recording workflow. The new Merge
Clips command in Adobe Premiere Pro CS5.5 provides
dual-system sound support by enabling you to quickly
match audio and video tracks that were recorded on
separate devices and media.
The new Merge Clips dialog box lets you quickly
choose different sync references so that audio
and video recorded on different devices can be
easily aligned for synchronized playback.
Professional audio-for-video editing in Adobe Audition CS5.5

Smoother camera moves with Warp Stabilizer
The new Warp Stabilizer in Adobe After Effects CS5.5 provides a solution to handheld camera
shake that typically requires hardware such as a Steadicam. With increasingly diverse video
recording devices—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 tools can
be found in other video production software, they typically correct camera position only, betraying
the fact that the footage was originally handheld.
Going beyond stabilizing just camera position, Warp Stabilizer uses advanced pixel analysis to also
correct camera rotation, rolling shutter artifacts, and parallax effects. The resulting footage can
appear as steady and smooth as if shot with a camera mounted on a mechanical stabilizer.
Warp Stabilizer is full of refinements that give you granular control of the process—all without
keyframes. For example, the Subspace Warp option deforms areas of the frame separately to
compensate for parallax shift. You can raise or lower the default amount of smoothness, which
changes scaling and cropping behaviors. You can also control how frame edges are resolved by
setting a threshold for automatically cropping the frame or by intelligently filling empty spaces
using information in adjacent frames.
The ability to adjust all these variables makes Warp Stabilizer a powerful tool for getting exactly the
stability correction you need, from within After Effects CS5.5.
Warp Stabilizer provides a great deal of
control over the automated result without
creating any keyframes in the timeline.
Once applied, Warp Stabilizer
parameters are set as an effect.
Performance boost with the Adobe Mercury Playback Engine
Work faster, thanks to enhancements in the Adobe Mercury Playback Engine in Adobe Premiere
Pro CS5.5. Edit video using newly certified laptop GPUs, get real-time playback of mixed-format
timelines, and use more GPU-accelerated effects.
CUDA Acceleration
The Adobe Mercury Playback
Engine works hand in hand with
NVIDIA® CUDA technology, which
leverages the parallel compute
engine in NVIDIA GPUs to solve
many complex computational
problems in a fraction of the time
it would take a CPU to perform
the same task. For a current list of
supported video cards, visit
www.adobe.com/go/64bitsupport.
New laptop certification. The Adobe Mercury Playback Engine now supports additional NVIDIA
graphics cards—including cards for laptops—so you can enjoy high-performance, real-time editing
on set and on location.
Smooth playback of mixed formats. With GPU-accelerated effects you can compensate for
differences in frame rate, field order, and pixel aspect ratio, as well as media with varying types of
alpha channels.
Fast filtering and effects. GPU-accelerated effects and transitions include faster Additive Dissolve,
where you can combine color information between clips without edge and halo artifacts. You can
see Fast Blur and Directional Blur effects in real time and eliminate unwanted interlacing artifacts
with control over field order, flicker removal, and more.
Rich, interactive reading experiences
Design and publish highly engaging digital documents online and on mobile devices. Create stylish,
rich, innovative content—with a new level of interactivity—that can be authored from within
Adobe InDesign CS5.5, and experienced on leading tablet devices and smartphones.

now publish complex, colorful books with beautiful typography, images that look perfect at any
size, and links that enhance reading and learning. Incorporate a soundtrack in a children’s book,

layouts, and video sequences.
From within Photoshop CS5,
Illustrator CS5, InDesign CS5.5,

you can generate an online
review that’s easy to use and
invites fast, targeted feedback.
• Deliver eBooks with images that resize automatically to look sharp on any screen. Set conversion
options for the entire document or individual images when you export to EPUB format. You can
also rasterize shapes, text frames, placed graphics, and groups created in InDesign so that they
export as dynamically resizing images.
• Have confidence that text styles you define in InDesign are correctly exported. Now you can map
paragraph and character styles directly to HTML, EPUB, and PDF tags for the appropriate
specifications. You can even add CSS class names and enter your own tags.
• Use the new Articles panel to provide a coherent reading experience when you export a complex
book layout that includes a variety of elements such as images, captions, sidebars, and block
quotes. Drag components into the Articles panel to define the order in which they’ll export—
without rearranging your InDesign layout.

Adobe Flash Builder 4.5 Premium
Master Collection now includes the Premium edition of Adobe Flash Builder so you can build
expressive mobile, web, and desktop applications with the best tools Adobe has to offer. Build
standalone applications targeted at multiple platforms using the new mobile support for
ActionScript and Flex® projects. Leverage mobile-ready components optimized for performance
and touch input. Profilers, network monitoring, automated testing, and more can help you develop
rich interactive content even more rapidly and creatively than before.
Designer-developer workflow with Flash Catalyst CS5.5 and Flash Builder 4.5 Premium
Not only does Master Collection include Flash Builder 4.5 Premium, but a new workflow with Flash
Catalyst CS5.5 introduces easy collaboration between designer and developer. Flash Catalyst CS5
and Flash Builder 4 enabled a workflow that allowed designers to provide native Flex Project (FXP)
files to developers, who could then open and continue to work with those files. Now, Flash Catalyst
CS5.5 and Flash Builder 4.5 expand on this concept and deliver a powerful new workflow that lets
designers work in parallel with developers on the same project.
For example, if you’re a designer, you can begin by creating a wireframe in Flash Catalyst CS5.5.
Add interactions, transitions, and constraints, and then hand the file off to a developer. In Flash
Builder 4.5, the developer can add logic and create connections to data sources, and then return
the file to you. You can then open the file in Flash Catalyst CS5.5 to add final artwork and skin the
application, returning it to the developer for deployment if you wish.
A full roundtrip workflow
allows designers and
developers to work
collaboratively throughout
an entire project.
