Q: Why should I switch to Production Premium if I’m using another NLE?

A: Adobe Creative Suite 6 Production Premium software goes beyond a new NLE, with the full post-production pipeline for virtually any type of production. Tight integration between Adobe Premiere Pro, After Effects, and Photoshop expands your capabilities and saves time, and seamless project exchange with Adobe Premiere Pro and Final Cut Pro or Avid Media Composer makes it simple to switch.

Q: Can you tell me more about integration in Production Premium?

A: Adobe Premiere Pro is not only designed to let you work easily between the editing timeline and After Effects or Photoshop, with support for a wide number of formats and Adobe Dynamic Link, but it is also part of a full production pipeline. You can ingest and organize footage in Adobe Prelude before bringing it into Adobe Premiere Pro, and while working on an edit, you can refine audio in Adobe Audition and color grade and finish in Adobe SpeedGrade before batch encoding the result in Adobe Media Encoder. After Effects is closely integrated with Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator as well.

Q: Why should I buy Production Premium over After Effects on its own?

A: CS6 Production Premium offers more value for your money than After Effects, without adding premium cost. Adobe Premiere Pro supports working with After Effects projects like no other NLE can, and Photoshop and Illustrator are closely integrated with After Effects, which now includes the ability to bring Illustrator vectors into After Effects as Shape Layers. SpeedGrade adds color grading and finishing, and Adobe Media Encoder is a superset of the Render Queue that works in the background.

Q: What are the newest components in Production Premium?

A: CS6 Production Premium includes two entirely new applications. SpeedGrade is a sophisticated color grading and finishing system. Prelude is designed for on-set ingest, the addition of metadata, and rough edits that can be imported and improved in Adobe Premiere Pro. Prelude is available only in Production Premium.

I've been using adobe programs for video editing since cs3 and I'm amazed at how far the programs have come. I recently built a PC (after using a Mac for the past 4 years) and needed to get a copy of CS so I could use my machine for work. The software was simple to install like always and runs great on my new rig. The best part is that once you buy into the packages, its much cheaper to upgrade a d stay current.

No complaints with the packaging or software, I would recomend this to anyone looking to get a great editing package for photos and especially videos.

PROs:
This suite has basically everything a video editor needs ready to go. As with any editing or graphics programs there is a learning curve and Adobe is no different. Many of the commands are very intuitive and easy to gain a working knowledge of. I love Premiere Pro. It will take any kind of video footage and mix with any other kind of video footage and it just all works. Other big name editing programs require you to convert the footage to one type or another first. Meanwhile, with Premier you can drop any footage on the timeline and go. It also opens Final Cut projects! Premier directly imports After Effect Comps and Photoshop projects right onto the timeline and gives you the ability to go back into the native program and edit the item and it is then saved back in Premier.Key stroke shortcuts are changeable so if you are coming from another program you can set the controls up any way you like them. Then there is the Mercury acceleration. The time savings from that alone is worth the cost of the program if you edit with deadlines.

CONs: Only works with 64bit computers. Learning curve is steep. Limited Graphics card support for Mercury acceleration. You'll need to make sure your video card is supported.

Amazing how slim the packaging has come down since CS1 and CS2, you could knock someone out if you threw the box set at them. CS3 was the first slim down version. But omg how cheap and thin cardboard has become, especially for $1800 with DVDs in a CD paper holder. Missed the old bloated content that made you feel good knowing that printed design inside the box gave me something to hold while installing the thing lol.

Well this is the last of the software you can own outright from Adobe. Don't like the subscription idea either, but if its to deter piracy by making it appear affordable I guess.

Anyway, I am not one to upgrade EVERY year so this is my purchase to hopefully fit my needs according to the hardware I use. Before this I was using CS3 happily but the transition to 64bit and GPU capabilities made it a worthy upgrade till the next coming of whatever replaces 64bit win 7/8 systems.

I think I did the math in my head but paying the subscription yearly does equal paying the full price in 2 years with their *cough* updates and newer versions.

Great products that I've been using for years and will continue to invest in for time to come. If you don't mind some random bugs when you push things to the max then this is great. There are other things out there that you can do similar things in but I think the Adobe community is a great one so I will stay here.
