Adobe Premiere Pro CS6 to gain 5K+ video, new interface

updated 10:10 am EDT, Thu April 12, 2012

Better multicam among numerous improvements

Adobe has formally unveiled Premiere Pro CS6, the next major upgrade of its video editing software. Among its changes is a radically different interface, for instance defaulting to a new "two-up" workspace in which the Source Monitor and the Program Monitor sit side-by-side, with Info, Effect, Project, Media Browser, Timeline, and Audio Meter panels below. Many of the program's panels have been improved in their own right, and Adobe has revised time ruler bars as well as markers.

New trackpad gestures and additional trimming options should speed up some tasks, and the app now sports Photoshop-style adjustment layers; a new default audio track type lets people mix, match, and pan mono and stereo clips, with Multichannel and Adaptive types providing specialized functions. Another significant addition to Premiere is the Warp Stabilizer first introduced in After Effects CS5.5, which not only stabilizes video but attempts to eliminate motion artifacts.

Premiere Pro's multicam support has been expanded to include an unlimited number of cameras, rather than just four, and a Three-Way Color Corrector effect is said to simplify color workflow. Under the hood the program uses a new 64-bit engine, which permits things like making color corrections in real-time and working with video resolutions up to 5K or even higher. Several more camera formats are being supported, including ARRI Alexa, RED's EPIC and SCARLET-X, and Canon's Cinema EOS C300.

Premiere Pro CS6 should ship sometime later this quarter. It will be available separately or as part of a new Production Premium suite, which will include CS6 upgrades of apps like Audition, After Effects, Photoshop Extended, SpeedGrade, Illustrator, and Flash Professional.
