Get started quickly Launch Adobe Premiere Pro CS6 and select “New Project.” In the New Project Dialogue box select the location where you want to store your project and give it a name.

After importing your media, right click on any piece of footage and choose “New Sequence from Clip.” Adobe Premiere Pro will automatically build a sequence optimized for the media. Alternatively, you can start with any sequence and drop a clip into the timeline. Adobe Premiere Pro will make the best match for the footage. Moving a project from Final Cut Pro into Adobe Premiere Pro – It’s as simple as 1,2,3! 1. Export an XML file from Final Cut Pro. Close the source project. 2. In Adobe Premiere Pro, select File >Import. 3. Browse to the XML file, and click Open. Adobe Premiere Pro will prompt a relink to footage. Common filters and transitions, such as three way color corrections, dissolves, and audio keyframes translate without a hitch. Designed to take advantage of today’s 64-bit operating systems and all of the RAM in your system, the Mercury Playback Engine in Adobe Premiere Pro CS6 delivers an amazingly fluid editing experience with real-time playback, accelerated rendering, and faster encoding. •• Mobile Mac workflows also can take advantage of GPU-accelerated performance thanks to support for AMD Radeon HD 6750M and AMD Radeon HD 6770M graphics cards with 1GB VRAM on some MacBook Pros running OS X 10.7. ••You also can get faster GPUaccelerated performance with a supported NVIDIA card. For an up-to-date list of supported cards, see www.adobe.com/ go/64bitsupport. Importing Made Easy The Media Browser allows you to easily import virtually any video format without transcoding and edit it natively. Adobe Premiere Pro links to traditional movie and audio files as well as industry standard file based media, such as P2 cards, XDCAM, RED, and ARRIRAW. To import files using the Media Browser, select the Media Browser Panel in the lower left quadrant, navigate to the files you want to import, select the files you want to use and right-click and choose “Import” or drag the clip thumbnails to the Project panel. Timeline Colors Demystified Here is a key to decoding timeline colors. No color Playback will play directly from the original source media file. Playback at full quality is certain to be in real time. Green A render preview will be used. Yellow Playback will probably be in real time. Red Playback may or may not be in real time If you have a fast computer, then a lot of things marked with red may play back in real time; if you have a slow computer, then some things marked with yellow may need to be rendered to preview files before the segment can be played in real time.
