In association with the Encore CS3 product, Premiere allows you to create once and dump the output to Blu-Ray disc, DVD, and as a Flash SWF file for the web. Premiere Pro also supports other publishing platforms, such as Flash and mobile devices.
The new Export for Encore feature in Adobe Premiere Pro takes care of encoding the content of the timeline by sending it directly to Encore along with the chapter marks. In Encore, you can burn directly to disc without menus, or create a more elaborate title that includes interactive menus, multiple audio tracks, and tracks with subtitles.
Premiere also includes a visual flow chart to help users create disk navigation using drag-and-drop actions. Users can choose between automatic menu generation or create menus in Photoshop files using Photoshop technology built into Encore. Buttons, text, and images are saved as layers and layer sets that can be edited later in Photoshop.
Encore handles the automatic conversion of source files to the highest quality MPEG-2 or H.264 formats and to Dolby Digital or DTS sound.
Encore projects can be exported as Flash content, ready for the web.
With Device Central CS3, Adobe has shown its commitment to publishing content on mobile devices. This commitment is also palpable in Premiere Pro, where it is now possible to use Adobe Media Encoder to export video in 3GPP and H.264 formats optimized for playback on mobile devices, iPod, PSO and other devices.
Premiere Pro works with DV, Digital Betacam, HDV, DVCPRO HD, HDCAM, and 2K and 4K film digitization formats. The integration with Photoshop allows the import and animation of the layers, and with the integration with After Effects it is possible to drag and drop or copy and paste clips and timelines directly between both applications.
The features that complete the Premiere Pro CS3 for Mac sample book are multi-camera editing support, native HDV editing, advanced controls for defining reference frames, and professional color correction.
Premiere Pro CS3 is Universal binary, running natively on Intel architecture-based Macs, and will be available throughout the third quarter of 2007 with an estimated price of $ 799.
