Frequently Asked Questions

Adobe Premiere Pro CS6
Premiere Pro CS6: Quickly and easily edit multicam footage from as many cameras as you have on the shoot.
Adobe After Effects CS6
After Effects CS6: Place and track 3D elements on 2D footage for precise visual effects and motion graphics.
Adobe After Effects CS6

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's Really Worth It! November 4, 2012
Platform for Display:PC
This is a great product, it encompasses several top class software programs that you would pay much more for if you bought them separately. BUT, as a student or teacher, you get it all at an extremely competitive price.

The con? Registration is a pain in the ass. They ARE serious in verifying who you are, and they mean to make sure you a valid academic user. But, if you are, and can provide valid academic credentials, you're fine!

Finally, as a registered user, you have the added benefit of getting regular product updates, and Adobe is the only software manufacturer that is really serious about updating each product ongoingly with fixes and updates. In that sense, they are superlative. Great to have quick, current, valuable updates!

I'll admit. I've purchased two student teacher editions (different software each time, years apart) and fought through the verification process. I HAD the links all ready to go to provide a nice step by step feedback / directions and I lost it.

In trying to recreate the process I stumbled upon a simple .pdf file in the ZIP folder that you download (the program from Amazon). Amazingly enough... All the directions are right there, black and white (and color where applicable).

Step 1:
Be eligible

Step 2:
Purchase (copy the product code Amazon provides)

Step 3:
Download (Go ahead and leap to step 5, return to step 4)

Step 4:
Install software

Step 5:
Verify at: adobe dot com/go/edu-validate
- Requires a .edu email address (Most simple manner, the serial number is then emailed to you within 2-3 minutes)
- Other forms of verification which I believe they contact the school to ensure you are enrolled (K-12, Etc)
- This process takes about 10 minutes to create an Adobe account, fill out the school and your degree/education information)

Step 6:
When prompted enter the serial number provided from the .edu email address.

Step 7:

(Step 8:) Don't get upset and vent at Amazon because the simple directions are too complicated. (they even give PICTURES to follow in the .pdf titled: "IMPORTANT - How to validate and activate your product"

I chose this "unsupported" version of the software because I'm "DISGUSTED" with the abuse software companies are moving towards with "subscription based" services.

5.0 out of 5 stars As expected Adobe wins again February 14, 2013
By JPham
Platform for Display:PC Download|Verified Purchase
I have used CS5.5 for a while as it was the professional choice between the options out there (FCPX is no longer gearing their products to the professional market, Apple has plenty of success elsewhere) and needed to get another copy for my laptop (since I won't be at home while at college). Went with CS6 for the new wares and they are a pleasant addition. Prelude allows you to preview large files faster than most playback software and allows you to add tags of sections of the video and even to create rough cuts. Speed Grade allows you to get good (not fully professional compared to the Magic Bullet suite or to Resolve) color correction with precision. The suite communicates well with each other and speeds up workflow compared to getting other programs for each individualized part of the production process. The one hitch I had was that after licencing the products were slow and would often crash but a few reboots fixed that.
Important Note***
If you want to run this on a laptop make sure your device can handle the suite first. Go to Adobe's site and try the trial. While this suite is very fast and streamlined, there are requirements that the computer will have to meet to get full functionality. Most "stock" laptops will not have the power needed to get the full power out of the suite. IF YOU ARE NOT USING A x64 BIT OS THEN YOU WILL NOT HAVE ACCESS TO THE FULL POWER OF THIS SUITE.

1.0 out of 5 stars Awful Verification Process May 13, 2012
Platform for Display:PC Download|Verified Purchase
This product requires verification to use. Unfortunately this requires going through a 3rd party called identit-e. I have not had a good experience with their customer support... As in it's non-existent. I purchased this software last week and after multiple other problems, like being assigned an invalid product key, I still don't have my serial number. It's been 7 days now and all my status for verification says is, "there are technical issues with our servers and there is no time limit on when it will be fixed." So this is more of an issue with this identification 3rd party, but that still makes this software worthless, and therefore it still gets 1 star. Adobe needs to find another company to handle verification. This is the worst customer service / headache I've ever had with a product purchased from Amazon. I opened a ticket for identit-e to ask for an update or more information and they just closed it without any message or notification. Just horrible.

5.0 out of 5 stars Student Paradise! August 31, 2013
By Jack
Platform for Display:PC|Verified Purchase
This is perfect for anyone who is emphasizing in some sort of video or broadcast production degree. Verification is quick and easy, especially if you use your school email as the address you use to receive your activation code. You can add it to an adobe account that uses another email later. Perfect!
