Top new features of Production Premium Breakthrough performance Work fluidly on HD and higher-resolution projects, and check edits without rendering delays. Dramatic performance gains in CS5 Production Premium are made possible by native 64-bit support and the new Mercury Playback Engine in Adobe Premiere Pro. 64-bit operating system required BothAdobePremiereProCS5and AfterEffectsCS5runonlyon64-bit operatingsystems,suchasMacOSX 10.5orlater,Microsoft®Windows® Vista64-bitEdition,orWindows7 64-bitEdition.Formoreinformation aboutoptimizingperformance,see thecompletesystemrequirementson thelastpageofthisdocument. With expanded native 64-bit support, After Effects, Adobe Premiere Pro, 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 resolutions. In Photoshop Extended, access to all RAM makes it much easier to edit and apply filters to large images, which is common when creating digital matte paintings and other video-related projects. For After Effects CS5, native 64-bit support has a dramatic, positive effect on the experience of working on deeply-layered high-resolution projects in 32 bit per color (bpc) mode. With After Effects CS5 running on a 64-bit operating system with 32GB of RAM, you can preview a 30-second HD comp at full resolution and at 32 bpc, so that you can evaluate your entire composition at maximum fidelity without interruption.* Beyond being able to preview longer continuous stretches of your project, rendered image frames are more likely to be kept in memory, allowing you to move around a project’s timeline or between compositions without losing already-rendered frames. Additionally, memory buffer errors due to RAM constraints are virtually eliminated. These improvements increase productivity, which in turn facilitates creativity.

Without GPU acceleration Adobe Premiere Pro CS5 sets a new standard in high-performance editing thanks to the revolutionary Mercury Playback Engine, with or without GPU acceleration. The Mercury Playback Engine is 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 used equally, and the timeline plays back smoothly. With GPU acceleration When you add GPU acceleration, performance gets even better. The same nine-layer timeline drops the CPU usage down to 5–10%. Even with this complicated timeline, more layers and effects could be stacked without affecting real-time playback . *Previewtimesareapproximate,withnoothersoftwareortasksrunning. Adobe Creative Suite 5 Production Premium What’s New 3 In Adobe Premiere Pro, the Mercury Playback Engine takes advantage of every part of a modern system. Whether you use a Mac or Windows, the Mercury Playback Engine brings native 64-bit, GPU-accelerated support and optimization for multiple-core CPUs. You’ll experience smooth responsiveness and instant feedback when in the past you might have expected to wait. Open projects faster, scrub through HD and higher resolution projects fluidly, and handle long-form content and effects-heavy sequences with rock-solid stability. You’ll usually see results instantly when keying with the new Ultra keyer, scrubbing through transitions and effects, performing multiple color corrections, and applying Gaussian blurs and blend modes. These performance enhancements also help Adobe Premiere Pro render final output much faster than before. In Adobe Creative Suite 5 Production Premium, you can coordinate RAM allocation for After Effects, Adobe Premiere Pro , Adobe Encore, and Adobe Media Encoder thanks to cross-component memory management. You can make the most of your system resources without learning complex memory-management settings. Dynamic Link is faster between After Effects CS5 and Adobe Premiere Pro CS5, and is also supported in both directions between those two components. You can also use Dynamic Link between Encore and either After Effects or Adobe Premiere Pro. Adjust RAM usage for Production Premium components using new shared memory management settings. Dynamic Link—now faster in CS5—lets you work between Production Premium components and stay in the creative flow by eliminating the need to render files when you make changes to assets—whether you’re editing an After Effects composition that appears as footage in Adobe Premiere Pro or bringing an edited Adobe Premiere Pro sequence into After Effects to perform color correction or add visual effects. You can use Dynamic Link to insert an effects sequence from After Effects into an Adobe Premiere Pro timeline, use an Adobe Premiere Pro timeline as a layer in an After Effects composition, or import After Effects compositions or Adobe Premiere Pro sequences into Encore for DVD authoring. The industry’s best tapeless workflow Expanded native support for tapeless media, including the latest DSLR video formats, makes the industry’s best tapeless workflow even better in CS5 Production Premium. Edit native tapeless footage immediately after transferring it from the camera, avoiding transcoding or rewrapping of footage. You save valuable time and preserve the pristine quality of the original capture along with camera metadata. New support for XDCAM HD 50, AVCCAM, DPX, and AVC-Intra as well as enhanced RED support builds on existing support for P2, XDCAM EX and HD, and AVCHD. Use the Media Browser panels in Adobe Premiere Pro and OnLocation to conveniently browse clips and view metadata, including metadata from Panasonic AVCCAM cameras. With the latest DSLR cameras from Canon, Nikon, Panasonic, and others, you can shoot full-frame 1920x1080 or 1280x720 HD video. Due to their exceptional image quality, low-light capability, and the ability to shoot using prime lenses, these cameras 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 EOS 5D Mark II, 7D, and 1D Mark IV 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. Complementing its existing direct-to-disk recording capabilities, OnLocation CS5 now has a workflow tailored to merging content from a tapeless camera. Add comments as metadata to placeholder clips on your computer while recording the actual clips on a tapeless camera; when you import the original camera media into the shot list, OnLocation merges the logging information with video and audio to create fully logged tapeless captures.

For example, having shot and script data in each shot can help an editor assemble a rough cut more quickly. Import tapeless media formats directly into OnLocation CS5, logged with complete shot metadata. RED Digital Cinema cameras capture extremely high-resolution raw files, enabling digital production workflows that allow you to make image-processing decisions throughout the postproduction process. Adobe Premiere Pro CS5 provides full native support for RED R3D files, allowing you to import them directly without transcoding, rewrapping, or installing additional software. Because the files 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. Work with content in all common RED R3D file permutations, including 2K, 3K, 4K, 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. The new RED Source Settings dialog box in Adobe Premiere Pro CS5 offers extensive control over the look of RED RAW footage. Together with the ability to change color settings per clip, you can save combinations of adjustments as custom presets that you can apply to clips. Get the best possible rendering from RED RAW footage, preserve maximum image quality by applying nondestructive adjustments, and achieve exactly the look you want with the RED Source Settings dialog box in Adobe Premiere Pro CS5. Adobe Creative Suite 5 Production Premium What’s New 5 Roundtrip editing with Apple Final Cut Pro and Avid editing software Bring the powerful capabilities of Production Premium to workflows that involve other nonlinear editors (NLEs). Exchange project files among NLEs, creating an open workflow that preserves commonly used effects and transitions without intermediate rendering. Adobe Premiere Pro can import projects from and export projects to Final Cut Pro and Avid editing software, so members of your production team can use the NLE they know while taking advantage of the unique capabilities of Production Premium. For example, you can import Final Cut Pro or Avid projects into Adobe Premiere Pro and use Speech Search to add metadata that is passed through to Encore for inclusion in web DVDs. You can also import a Final Cut Pro sequence into Adobe Premiere Pro, and then use Dynamic Link to send the sequence through to After Effects without rendering at any point in the process. Applying the power of Production Premium to other NLEs in this way saves time, and has the added advantage of eliminating the need to manage space-consuming intermediate files. via Dynamic Link via XMP Apple Final al Cut Pro via Dynamic Link via AAF Avid video s software Adobe Premiere Pro can be the hub of an open post-production workflow, adding the unique capabilities of CS5 Production Premium to projects that involve Apple Final Cut Pro and Avid video software. Eye-popping 3D and natural painting Cross-platform 64-bit support in Adobe Photoshop Extended CS5 OnbothWindowsandMacOS, performday-to-dayimagingtasks faster,andprocessverylargeimages atleast10timesfaster.(Requires a64-bit-capablecomputerwitha 64-bitversionofMacOS,Microsoft® Windows®7,orWindowsVista®.) Actualperformanceincreasewill varydependingonthedriversyou haveinstalled,thefeatureyou’re using,andotherfactors. In Photoshop CS5 Extended, easily extrude 3D assets from 2D layers, create expressive digital paintings, and quickly remove unwanted objects from complex backgrounds, thanks to new 3D and enhanced painting capabilities and Content Aware Fill. Quickly create 3D logos and artwork by extruding a text layer, Smart Object, selection, or layer mask with new Adobe Repoussé technology. Enhance the realism of your 3D designs with oneclick shadows, and explore different focal points in your 3D scene by previewing and adjusting the range for depth of field. Of course, you can move these 3D objects from Photoshop into After Effects to animate them within a 3D composition. With Adobe Repoussé, you can easily create a 3D shape from a 2D object, including type. Enhance your digital backgrounds for video productions or virtual sets by creating realistic painting effects and mimicking natural media, blending colors with lifelike brush strokes. The new Mixer Brush lets you define multiple colors on a single tip to paint with subtle color blends, or you can use a dry brush to blend a photo’s colors as you would with a real paintbrush. New Bristle Tips enable you to easily paint with naturally textured brush strokes, using defined bristle properties Adobe Creative Suite 5 Production Premium What’s New 6 like shape, length, and stiffness. Experiment with a broader range of looks by adding Bristle Tips to a variety of Photoshop brush tools. With the Mixer Brush, a photo (left) is easily transformed into a stylized painting (right). Spend less time laboriously sampling specific areas when removing unwanted objects in an image. When you remove an element from an image, new Content Aware Fill can intelligently replace the removed area with textures or colors sampled from neighboring regions. Content Aware Fill can quickly and easily remove unwanted objects from images by analyzing the surroundings. In Photoshop Extended, refinements to selection and painting tools significantly shorten the time it takes to prepare backgrounds, mattes, stills, and clean background plates for an Adobe Premiere Pro sequence or for compositing in After Effects. When selecting a subject in an image, get better edge-detection and masking results in less time with new Truer Edge selection technology, which can greatly simplify isolating difficult edges such as hair. Photoshop Extended also includes the new Exposure Merge feature that makes it easier to create high dynamic range (HDR) images, and a new GPU-enhanced color picker. In addition, Photoshop Extended incorporates many user-requested enhancements that simplify day-to-day tasks such as a way to quickly straighten images and to save 16-bit images directly to JPEG format. Roto Brush for fast isolation of moving foreground elements Many visual effects jobs require separating a foreground object, such as an actor, from its current background so that it can be placed in a completely different environment. Ideally, the subject would be shot in front of a greenscreen or bluescreen, and then easily isolated using a “keying” effect such as with the award-winning Keylight plug-in, which is bundled with After Effects. But sometimes it’s necessary to remove a subject from footage with a complex background, such as a street scene. This would normally involve manually isolating the foreground for every frame, a task requiring hours of tedious and expensive work. With the revolutionary new Roto Brush in After Effects CS5, all of that tedious, expensive work goes away. Simply brush paint strokes inside the foreground object and let After Effects determine where the subject starts and ends in each frame. If After Effects has trouble finding the edge of the subject in a frame, you can paint other strokes outside the subject to help After Effects identify the background and automatically create a transparent mask for it. The Roto Brush works similarly to the Quick Selection tool in Photoshop Extended. You can adjust the resulting mask edge so that it fits the actual edge of the subject more closely, by smoothing, feathering, spreading (expanding) or choking (contracting) the mask edge as needed. The remarkable results of the Roto Brush are made possible by the extraordinary amount of processing power available in today’s computers. The Roto Brush saves so much time and effort that you can consider effects and targeted corrections that would have been too time-consuming Adobe Creative Suite 5 Production Premium What’s New 7 or costly in the past. For example, you can use the Roto Brush to color correct just one moving subject in your footage. To use the new Roto Brush, just draw simple paint strokes inside the foreground object (left and inset), and let After Effects find the rest of the foreground object. In the final result (right), After Effects continues to isolate the foreground subject accurately even as he moves in subsequent frames. 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 post-production. Speed production and post-production with a script-to-screen workflow To streamline production, import an Adobe Story script into Adobe OnLocation, the powerful direct-to-disk recording, logging, and monitoring software. Metadata created in Adobe Story* helps you manage your shoot with automatically generated shot lists and efficient logging. Additionally, 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 *AdobeStoryandotherCSLiveonlineservicesarecomplimentaryforalimitedtime.Seethelastpagefordetailsandlimitationsrelated toallAdobeonlineservices. Adobe Creative Suite 5 Production Premium What’s New 8 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. The Formatting toolbar provides familiar wordprocessor-like controls. In addition, Story supports keyboard commands for fast, efficient navigation. Color coded character dots help you quickly identify characters appearing in each scene. View the name of the character by placing the cursor over a character dot. Adobe Story automatically numbers each scene. The Outline panel in the Authoring view provides a high-level overview of your script. Scene duration is calculated based on preset or custom formulas. The Tagging panel lets you manually identify individual elements and production requirements. These can be colorcoded, as shown in the script above, or displayed in boldface. 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. *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 Creative Suite 5 Production Premium What’s New 9 Countless small improvements that make a big difference Experience a smoother day-to-day workflow, thanks to user requests that sparked dozens of enhancements made throughout Production Premium. Here are just a few examples: • In After Effects, align layers to comps and start animating more quickly with the new autokeyframe mode. • In After Effects, use the new Refine Matte effect to apply the intelligent edge-tracking, dechattering, and motion-blurring capabilities found in Roto Brush to any layer with a problematic alpha channel, such as keyed footage. • In After Effects, via a new keyboard shortcut, specify that the camera points to either selected layers or all layers, along with many other improvements to camera tools and settings. • In Adobe Premiere Pro, clean up your sequences quickly with commands for finding and removing gaps between clips on the timeline, and use automatic scene detection to create separate clips from HDV tapes and find and remove gaps in sequences instantly. • In Adobe Premiere Pro, 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. • In Photoshop Extended, automatically straighten images, close all images without saving, change the opacity of multiple layers simultaneously, and much more. Easy online video portfolios with Flash Catalyst Create online video portfolios and other types of interactive content more easily with Flash Catalyst, a new professional tool built for anyone who wants to create expressive interactive content without writing code. There’s no need to learn scripting—simply design your vision using Illustrator or Photoshop Extended, and then bring layered media from those components into Flash Catalyst to add interactions using its approachable user interface. It’s easy to add video, sound effects, and dynamic media too. Flash Catalyst makes it easy to integrate video into a Flash project and to assign interactions, which can be enhanced later by Flash developers. You can use Flash Catalyst to create interactive web video portfolios. Using intuitive, menu-driven functions to incorporate video and audio content as well as custom playback controls, you can assemble compelling stories, create video presentations, and pitch concepts. Richer, more compatible interactive content in Flash Professional CS5 Wide-ranging enhancements improve the quality and compatibility of Flash Professional CS5 projects. Flash Professional CS5 features a text engine that provides much richer typography, including threaded text blocks, columns, and precise creative control. In addition, the new text engine helps ensure that text maintains its fidelity when imported into Flash Professional from other components such as Adobe Illustrator. Adobe Creative Suite 5 Production Premium What’s New 10 Using the new Spring option for the Bones tool in Flash Professional, you can design more realisticlooking motion for jointed, flexible objects. The Spring option is an intuitive way to add personality and realism to inverse kinematics (IK). The Spring option for the Bones tool (left) adds realistic motion to inverse kinematics for jointed objects (above). The Code Snippets panel eases the Flash learning curve by letting you inject prebuilt code into projects. Using these predefined code blocks can make it easier to learn ActionScript® 3.0. Fast, accurate keying with Ultra Keyer Chroma keying is typically a tedious, time-consuming process—one that Ultra, the powerful new high-performance keyer 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’s a single, uniform shade of whatever color you’re 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 that occurs 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. The list of potential challenges is long and varied. Using Ultra, you can achieve fast, accurate keying on even the most challenging DV and HD footage. 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. The Mercury Playback Engine dramatically increases performance, usually resulting in real-time HD keying. Ultra is optimized to handle real-world greenscreen conditions. Quickly pull a high-quality key using simple, intuitive controls. Animate parameters to accommodate changing conditions. Adobe Creative Suite 5 Production Premium What’s New 11 Enhanced Adobe Media Encoder With the rapid growth of video on the Internet and on new platforms such as mobile devices, being able to efficiently deliver your content in a variety of formats is crucial. Adobe Media Encoder, a separate, native 64-bit component of Production Premium, saves you time by automating the process of creating multiple encoded versions of your source files and Adobe Premiere Pro sequences. Stay focused on being creative by using Adobe Media Encoder to batch encode your files in the background. Set up multiple items for batch encoding, manage priorities, and control advanced settings for each item individually. Encode to a wide variety of video formats, including DPX, FLV, F4V, Windows Media, QuickTime, and other popular codecs such as MPEG-2, MPEG-4, and H.264, all accelerated by support for native 64-bit rendering. Adobe Media Encoder now has better visual feedback and a new, more intuitive user interface that helps you efficiently set up and batch encode multiple versions of your sequences, including the ability to: • Get more visual feedback. The Settings Summary dialog box displays information about both output and source footage, and two 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 file’s frame rate is 25 frames per second, the TV Standard is set to PAL. This affects video output in H.264 Blu-ray Disc, MPEG-2 DVD, and MPEG-2 Blu-ray Disc formats. Adobe Media Encoder now displays the video asset being transcoded. Notice that in this encoding batch, two source files in the Source Name column are being output in many formats and resolutions for archival, web, broadcast, and mobile delivery. • Set bit rate based on frame dimensions for FLV, F4V, H.264 Blu-ray Disc, and MPEG-2 Blu-ray Disc formats. You can set the bit rate manually as well. • 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. In the Preferences dialog box, you can control whether source cue points are used. • Ensure that final content contains metadata. Use templates to add essential details to media assets in a consistent way to enhance viewer engagement. You can also use metadata templates to make sure that a file contains only the metadata you specify. Adobe Creative Suite 5 Production Premium What’s New 12 CS Live online services* CS Live online services support creative and production tasks among workgroups, whether colleagues are near or far. CS Live services are designed to support production and postproduction workflows, and help you: • Develop scripts and shot lists with Adobe Story, the new collaborative script development tool that treats script elements as metadata, to accelerate production and post-production. • Gather team and client feedback with CS Review, an online service for a production team to review dailies, storyboards, and edited works in progress; you can view feedback without leaving Photoshop Extended, Illustrator, or Adobe Premiere Pro. In Photoshop Extended and Illustrator, reviewers can use their web browsers to review and add comments. In Adobe Premiere Pro, comments are dynamically captured and displayed in the Review panel 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. (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.) In CS Review, a CS Live online service* that integrates with components of CS5 Production Premium, you can visually correlate review comments with your content. For example, while in Adobe Premiere Pro CS5, areas of a video frame can be highlighted to quickly recognize where a comment is located within the context of the video sequence. All review comments are logged in a web browser. (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.) • Gain access to convenient services for sharing project information with team members and clients through Acrobat.com. Share ideas, discuss details, and complete work with others using the Adobe ConnectNow web conferencing solution. Write and collaborate on projects and proposals using Adobe Buzzword, a proven and robust online word processor. Collaborate with colleagues to create stunning client presentations and present them from wherever you are with Acrobat.com Presentations, and work with others on spreadsheets or simple databases using Acrobat.com Tables. *CSLiveonlineservicesarecomplimentaryforalimitedtime.SeethelastpagefordetailsandlimitationsrelatedtoallAdobe onlineservices. Adobe Creative Suite 5 Production Premium What’s New 13 Perspective drawing in Adobe Illustrator Draw shapes and scenes in accurate 1, 2, or 3-point linear perspectives with perspective grids in Adobe Illustrator CS5. With the Perspective Grid tool, you can turn on a grid that supports drawing directly on planes of true perspective. The new Perspective Selection tool allows objects to be moved, scaled, duplicated, and transformed dynamically in perspective. You can also move and duplicate objects from one plane to another. Perspective tools even work with live text. In Adobe Illustrator CS5, you can draw in true linear perspective. You can also add objects to a perspective plane and transform them along the plane. If you’ve already created objects in flat space, simply apply them to a perspective plane, where their shape and size will correctly change as you transform the objects. If you set up perspective planes that match a virtual set or digital background that’s already in perspective, it’s easy to add more vector artwork to those backgrounds in perspective. Faster multitrack audio workflow and an expanded sonic palette Create and polish audio, customize music, and add sound effects within a familiar interface when you use Adobe Soundbooth CS5. Create soundtracks easily, get professional-sounding mixes, and fix audio problems fast. Move audio and soundtracks effortlessly between Adobe Premiere Pro and Soundbooth using the nondestructive ASND file format—no exporting or conversion needed. Soundbooth gives you access to a rich library of royalty-free Soundbooth Scores and sound effects from Resource Central*. View your entire multitrack soundtrack at once with the new resizable Multitrack view. Download new Soundbooth Scores and effects from the expanded collection on Resource Central*. Drag Soundbooth Scores and sound effects directly from the Resource Central* panel (upper left) into your multitrack projects. Drag audio clips to copy or move them to other locations and tracks. In Adobe Soundbooth CS5, you can mix and edit multitrack projects faster and with more control using an improved multitrack workflow. For example, you can resize the tracks in Multitrack view to see entire multitrack projects at once or to zoom in on specific tasks. Kick-start your soundtrack with a dramatically expanded selection of royalty-free content. *SeethelastpagefordetailsandlimitationsrelatedtoallAdobeonlineservices.
