Premiere Pro CS6

Adobe’s booth at NAB 2012 is a madhouse.  The seating area for every speaker is full and the aisles surrounding the booth are packed as well. Lots of third-party vendors are also showing off CS6 products as well. Adobe is clearly on the march with the new apps in Production Premium CS6.

I sat down with Premiere Pro Product Manager, Al Mooney, on Monday at NAB 2012 to discuss some of the new features in the app that is buzzing among editors at NAB. [Read more…]

Premiere Pro CS6

Adobe will unveil Production Premium CS6 at NAB 2012 next week.  Production Premium CS6 wil feature the following products from Adobe:

  • Premiere Pro
  • After Effects
  • Audition
  • Story
  • Media Encoder
  • Photoshop
  • SpeedGrade
  • Prelude

The new SpeedGrade CS6 was teased in late 2011 on Adobe TV with very little about it revealed since then.  SpeedGrade will be a pro grading tool, while Prelude is a new solution for the process of ingest, logging and transcoding.

I’ll have a better look at Production Premium CS6 next Monday.  In the mean time, the full press release teaser from Adobe is below. [Read more…]

Lightroom 4 Update Coming This Week w/ 5D Mark III Support & Bug Fixes

Lightroom 4

[UPDATE: It’s live now. Details here.]

I can’t count the number of recent blog posts, reviews and tweets that I’ve seen lamenting over the lack of support for the Canon 5D Mark III in Lightroom 4.  All should be well later this week with Adobe’s effort to release a Lightroom 4 update that includes several key bug fixes and adds support for the 5D Mark III.

Chances are that this will be a Release Candidate out of the gate at Adobe Labs with a final update due in a few weeks.  I’ll post as soon as I hear more.
