Edit Everything with Confidence
With Adobe Premiere Pro 2.0, you're ready for editing, no matter how demanding the project. HD, SD, HDV, and DV -- every major standard and high-definition video format (including DV, Digital Betacam, HDV, HDCAM, and D5) is within your reach, with no compromise on quality, features, or performance. That means you're free to work with whatever media best meets your requirements in terms of budget, creative expectations, and intended delivery medium.

Using native support for the AJA Xena HS card for real-time HD encoding, Premiere Pro 2.0 captures from and lays off to any HD-SDI VTR or device. With six channels of AES and embedded audio I/O, plus full-resolution SD and HD playback, Premiere Pro 2.0 and AJA Xena HS combine to provide a complete, full-featured capture and delivery solution for all HD and SD formats. Whether capturing from or laying back to Digi-Beta or D5, Premiere Pro 2.0 and the AJA Xena HS card are the perfect combination to accommodate diverse post-production work flows.

Putting HD resolution within reach of even the most modest budget, HDV has rapidly become a popular acquisition format. With Premiere Pro 2.0, you now have a full-featured editing environment for HDV with support for logging, batch capture, trimming, and editing in native HDV format so there is no conversion or quality loss. Plus, Premiere Pro 2.0 supports the most popular HDV-format cameras and VTRs, including the most popular Sony and JVC models. Premiere Pro 2.0 also streamlines the process of encoding video and audio for your Macromedia Flash projects with new Flash Video (FLV) export. This allows you to create compact, vector-based SWF animations that include sophisticated text animations and shape morphing.

Expanding Your Creativity
Premiere Pro 2.0 delivers a comprehensive and powerful set of professional editing tools, including new support for multi-cam editing, enhanced color support, and GPU-accelerated rendering. This leading application also opens a whole new level of professional production by supporting the editing of multiple-camera shoots. The new quad-view monitor provides simultaneous display of up to four synchronized source tracks, plus a real-time preview of the switched output. Drop into Record mode and you'll be able to switch between source tracks in real time to create a sequence containing the edited footage from each of the cameras. Making adjustments is easy. Simply record the desired changes, and Premiere Pro 2.0 updates your edited sequence automatically. The clips can then be edited as usual with any effects, titles, and other tools available in Premiere Pro 2.0.

Premiere Pro 2.0 introduces numerous enhancements to ensure that color in your video productions is as true to life as possible. For starters, Premiere Pro 2.0 provides new color correction tools that are optimized for different tasks, such as luma correction and limiting. For fine adjustments, the three-way color corrector provides precise control over shadows, midtones, and highlights. Use primary and secondary color correction tools to match shots, change colors, correct exposure errors, and modify highlights, midtones, and shadows across clips, sequences, or entire projects. Whether working with 8-bit, 10-bit, or 16-bit source material, the powerful new color correction tools process your changes at 32-bit resolution for maximum color fidelity.

Workflow Integration and Support
Premiere Pro 2.0 offers excellent integration with your high-end work flows. Film and video may be in different formats, but they needn't exist in different dimensions. Built-in conversion capabilities help bridge the two worlds by providing optional Feet + Frames timecode display (in addition to video SMPTE) for captured footage. If you originate on or deliver to 16mm or 35mm film, Premiere Pro 2.0 lets you choose whichever time reference system makes editing and conforming easiest for you.

With an open architecture, Premiere Pro 2.0 easily provides support for new formats and hardware as they become available. Choose from a wide range of capture cards and other hardware today to build the HD, SD, and DV editing system that meets your needs and budget.

If you're familiar with other Adobe products, working with Premiere Pro 2.0 will be a breeze. The software features panels that dock and group work with a redesigned user interface that's fully customizable. Tools, palettes, and menus are familiar and consistent with those in other Adobe video applications, and keyboard shortcuts remain fully customizable. Arrange everything you need using workspace panels that dock and group within the main application window, saving valuable screen space and eliminating the need to constantly reposition and resize multiple windows and palettes one by one.

The audio capabilities in Premiere Pro 2.0 -- unequaled by any other video editor -- now allow you to apply multiple effects to audio clips or tracks. Adobe Premiere Pro even includes a set of VST-format plug-ins that will get you started on audio enhancement right out of the box.

Deliver with Ultimate Confidence
Now that it's done, where can you play it? With Premiere Pro 2.0, the answer is "everywhere." Whether your delivery target is the Web, DVD, tape, film, or digital cinema, Adobe Premiere Pro 2.0 helps you leverage your editing investment across more playback platforms. Plus, workflow innovations, such as automated review and approval, facilitate and streamline everyday tasks to keep your projects on the fast track without keeping you from your core mission. Adobe Premiere Pro 2.0 also makes it easy to send both media and metadata to other video, film, and audio applications, making it more efficient to take a single project in multiple directions.

And finally, getting fast, to-the-point feedback from clients is a crucial part of any successful production. Adobe Clip Notes streamlines the process with an elegant solution based on two easy, accessible technologies: email and the Adobe PDF file format. A sequence can be exported as a PDF file with embedded or streamed video in either Windows Media or QuickTime. The file is then sent to the reviewer, who plays it back with Adobe Acrobat or Adobe Reader software. Whenever the reviewer pauses the video, the current timecode is automatically entered into the comment box. Remarks can be entered at the exact point at which the video is paused. When the file containing these remarks is sent back and imported into the sequence, the comments appear as clip markers at the appropriate timecode locations in the timeline. Adobe Clip Notes facilitates collaboration, expedites the review and approval process, and takes the pain out of keeping everyone in the loop.

Product Description

Make every frame count with Adobe Premiere Pro 2.0 software, the essential tool for professional video editing. Capture and edit virtually any format, from DV to uncompressed HD, and output to tape, DVD, and the web.

5.0 out of 5 stars I don't get the bad reviews, unless.... January 5, 2007
I don't get the bad reviews, unless these users are(no offense):

1. working for the competition

2. have hardware shortcomings

3. are not using the program correctly.

I used it right out of the box and was able to capture from my sony hdr-hc3 hd cam, even though it is not listed as compatible. I created a 5 minute flick in no time, had very good real time viewing of the unrendered product, and rendered it in about 20-30 minutes. I watched it on an 8' wide hd projection and it was perfect. All of the video correction I did was really an improvement to my cloudy day footage. This has been the easiest install, first-time use, hardware compatibility experience I have ever had.

Check the adobe Premiere user forumn and all of your questions will be answered. I posted today and got a response and an answer in about 5 minutes. I also have After Effects, Photoshop, and pagemaker and have been happy with all for years dating back to 1990.

I upgraded from Premiere 6.5, which I haven't used for years. The improvements are plentiful and very satisfying.

If you can swing it, spring for the productivity bundle. The programs really work well together.

1.0 out of 5 stars It is way too unstable May 15, 2006
I hate this program for being so expensive and has so many bugs in it. It worked ok for the first couple of videos then it automaticly changed my default settings to be compatable with some sort of 5.1 soundboard that this computer doesnt even have.

Then the movies take long enough to render and save anyway, but once there done, sound had disapered, sometimes there was no video in areas, it spent an hour rendering something then froze on 98% complete that the exact same one before it i did took about 10 minutes, I trimmed the video and it took longer? how does that figure? (no i didnt change any settings) and i specificly chose a certain frame size (320x240) and the stupid thing saved it as (720x830) if i select a frame size, i want it that size. Plus, you cant restart it to factory settings. You go to the REPAIR options and it prompts you that you have the wrong instalation disc, it requires a disc 1 that never came with the program... and reinstaling it doesnt do anything because it remembers the settings and I have no idea where the hell it saved those files to to go an erase them, they dont come up when you search for folders and files, all you can delete is the templates youve made that you dont need to save every time you make one of these things but it does it anyway.

and I'm sick to death of having to get online and search sites on how to fix these problems and bugs every time i close the thing or it screws up and I have to restart everything because ADOBE have absolutly NOTHING on errors or bugs in the help menu. They just treat it like this program is flawless, well its not, and its a huge rip off for a program that i wouldnt even give the honor of being labled a BETA version....

2.0 out of 5 stars HDV Capture Should Not Be on the Feature List October 15, 2006
I own an HDV camcorder. I want to edit in HDV and I've used Premiere Pro 1.5 to do it, however the two-step import process (including a potentially lossy conversion) frustrated me.

Happy with the workflow and features of Premiere Pro, I tried the trial download of 2.0 first. For one thing, it refused under any circumstances to recognize my HDR-FX1 camcorder (which is on its compatibility list) in HDV mode (despite appropriate iLink conversion and HDV VCR settings). Freeware applications like CapDVHS worked fine, so I finally gave up after trying Premiere Pro 2.0 on two machines. (Nevermind the trouble I had with the trial expiring on the same day I installed it.)

After trying Adobe Premiere 2.0, Avid Liquid, and Sony Vegas 7.0 it was (surprise) the Sony software that successfully captured, edited, and rendered the HDV project I am working on.

Premiere simply shouldn't have "Native HDV Editing" as a feature until they perform at least as well as the other major players in HDV editing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cut March 25, 2007
Adobe Premiere is far from the most advanced non-linear video editing package you can get however let me make this one comment.

- Editing is all about cutting and not fancy effects. The strength of the project is what is in front of and behind the camera not fancy effects.

I would never recommend using any of the effects on any of the non-linear video editing packages anyway. Get dedicated effects packages if you really want to do your special effects well.

In short Adobe Premiere is the BEST cutting software and the EASIEST to use. The learning curve is slightly steep but you will be cutting your footage within a day or two with this one.

An editor cuts and arranges media. Adobe Premiere does that perfectly. I recommend this like no other for the price but if you are looking for pro packages then go elsewhere and be prepared to pay five figures with extra hardware. If you want special FX this has some but no pro uses these effects tool. Premiere is a first class cutting tool. Go to Discreet products for FX.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Program October 2, 2006
I upgraded from Premiere 6.5 and it was woth every penny. I can not say enough good things about Premiere Pro 2.0. The quality of the DVD's it produces is of much higher quality than Premiere 6.5 and Pro 2.0 is very easy to work with. The scene detection option during capture was worth the upgrade in itself. DVD menu's are easy to create and produce outstanding professional results.

Highly recommended!
