Adobe Premiere Pro CS6 Editor's Review

When it comes to mainstream multimedia suites for Windows based PCs, Adobe Inc rules the roost. Despite presence of potent rival contenders like Corel and Apple, Adobe’s powerhouse suites dominate a majority of market. While graphic designers swear by the power and versatility of its bitmap editing app Photoshop, professional video editors stick to the company’s flagship video editing app, Premiere Pro. Premiere faces steep competition from rivals like Apple’s Final Cut Pro and Cyberlink suites but its new iteration comes with some essential upgrades to fend off the competition. With the right hardware, Premier Pro can cater to majority of video editing needs.

Like majority of mainstream video editing apps, Premiere Pro needs a PC with really powerful hardware to run smoothly. The app costs a whopping $799 though upgrade price is quite competitive. You may also opt for Adobe Creative Cloud monthly subscription to use the app. A PC with Multi -core CPU and 4 GB of RAM is what will get the app running. Windows 7 and later versions are supported by it and 64 bit support is required too. Post installation, Premiere Pro gobbles up 4 GB of hard disk space and for previewing large files, additional 10 GB disk space may be required. You can think of buying 1 TB hard disk before going for this pp, literally. The video card should be compliant with OpenGL 2.0 standard and discrete video card with 1GB video RAM will be ideal for this app.

When you launch Premiere Pro for the first time, its charcoal-hued interface may not look much different from that of its predecessor. On a closer look, the refinement and changes become more evident. The Project panel is more refined and it now shows larger sized source clips. As it is, Program and source monitors are fairly large in size. They take up more space but add to usability beyond doubt. Like Final Cut Pro and iMovie, you can now move your cursor on clip and then skim through the footage in Premiere Pro. If you click on the clip, a small time slider pops up. Overall, the interface is highly customizable and you can drag and reposition panels and windows with abandon.

In this version of Premiere Pro, Adobe team has put stress on editing as well. You may argue the new additions have been inspired by rivals but they are of great use nevertheless. Now you can bring clips from nearly any window to timeline and it supports various formats in same sequence without throwing any errors. True to Adobe’s claim, the revamped Mercury playback engine gives solid performance and it plays back everything you throw at it in real time. It deals with clips laden with many effects rather well.

There are some new video effects that users will find useful such as the Warp Stabilizer. It stabilizes shots and compensates for rolling shutter. The tool initially takes some time to analyze clips but once that is done, subsequent responses are fast and it actually outshines Final Cut Pro. Its color correction tools have got a revamp as well. Even the most finicky users will be pleased with functionality offered by Premiere Pro’s 3-way color corrector. It comes with the bells and whistles to let you tweak footages the way you want and is GPU accelerated. The color correction workplace is handy but it is not as efficient as Match Color feature of Final Cut Pro.

Veteran video editing professionals will appreciate the app’s capability to manage over 4 camera angles. Support for HD and DV formats is there. With the app’s new integrated Media Browser, looking at clips and dragging them into project has become easier than earlier. Now trimming video is possible with the app’s selection tool if you want and using keyboard shortcuts is another option. Adding various types of audio clips on same track does not cause any problem in composition.

The new and useful Uninterrupted Playback feature in Premiere Pro is a timesaver. It keeps the composition rolling as you switch to other tasks like emailing or using other apps. In earlier versions, multitasking would have halted the playback. Adobe, on its part, says this has been made possible owing to the Mercury Playback Engine which is also pivotal for several rendering and GPU acceleration tasks.

Users of Premiere Pro who have GPUs based on Nvidia CUDA technology will be benefited over others. However, the app now supports some of the top notch AMD graphics cards, notably those used in Apple MacBook Pro models. The Mercury Playback Engine, if supported by the GPU in your PC, will reduce processing and rendering time significantly. The media encoder that is bundled with Premiere Pro supports popular H.264 format but omits WebM and Ogg video. It is quite baffling since Adobe does not shy away from supporting HTML 5 and yet its app does not support output to emerging web video formats.

There are some small but useful additions that make Premiere Pro stand out amidst the competition. In media browser you get history tab which comes in handy when you mess up with a task. Marker implementation has also become much improved. You can attach notes to them and it is also possible to place several markers at same point. Premiere Pro is capable of capturing video footage from multiple devices now. It supports prosumer level cameras as well as tapes.

It may come as a surprise to many users that a powerhouse video editor like Premiere Pro, that has been in the industry for decades, ships with only 21 default transitions! Less popular rival apps come with hundreds of transitions these days. While you can always go for plug-ins, in veteran video editing community such effects are deemed tacky. However, widely used video effects like lighting, transforming and colorizing are present. You can now apply such effects simply by double clicking. A search box makes finding the desired effect easier.

While the sequences or movie building blocks in Premiere Pro are intuitive, they feel somewhat pale when compared to compound clips of Final Cut Pro. The capability to edit a clip while playback is on is a cool feature and it saves time too. Like Photoshop’s image layers, Premiere Pro also features adjustment layers. The adjustment layers can be created by using right-clicking in project panel. While the multiple camera angle enhancements in Premiere Pro are a welcome addition, lack of syncing by audio is a drawback. This is where Final Cut pro races ahead. The Audio Mixer in Premiere pro has been revamped like other parts of the app. As you drop new sound clips on the timeline, new tracks are made automatically.

Ever since Adobe unveiled the Creative Suite, it has focused on improving integration between its mainstream image and video apps. Premiere Pro offers solid integration with sibling apps like After Effects and Photoshop. Now, moving contents between these apps is a seamless process and you need not wait for conversion. This has been made possible by Adobe’s Dynamic Link menu option. Premiere Pros’s latest release is stable and with right CPU-GPU combination, it will sail through long and complex video compositions. However, in finer analysis it still lags behind Final Cut Pro, more so in aspects like rendering time and smooth playback. Application crashes are rare but in case they happen, your savior is Premiere pro’s auto saving option.

Nowadays, videos are exported to various devices and so a video editor needs to support multiple formats for wider device and platform compatibility. In this aspect, Premiere Pro leaves little room for grudges. It is also possible to batch encode your videos to be exported to multiple devices at the same time. Supported devices for output include HDTVs, iPads, smart phones etc. With Premiere Pro, users also get their hands on Adobe’s Encore app, which let them burn content on BluRay or DVD discs. Encore will accept Premiere Pro projects sans pre-rendering which is convenient and time saving.

Positive Points:
•    Improved Multi cam feature.
•    Improved and intuitive interface with high customization options.
•    Impressive integration with Adobe apps through Dynamic Link menu.
•    Extensive output format support.

Negative Points:
•    Occasional app crashes still happen.
•    Rendering speed still slower than Final Cut Pro.
•    Steep Price.
•    Extremely high hardware requirement gobbles disk space.

There is no denying the fact that, as a mainstream and professional level video editing app, Premiere Pro has matured and it stacks up well against the industry rivals, notably Final Cut Pro. The enhanced Multi cam angle feature and color tools also step up usability to an extent. Adobe team also deserves applause for the app’s solid integration with sibling apps like After Effects. However, the app still has some caveats and they become more prominent when compared with its arch rival, namely Final Cut Pro. In finer analysis, FCP stay one step ahead of Adobe’s behemoth app, especially in terms of stability and fluidness of operations. However, loyal Premiere Pro users are likely to embrace this version, the small glitches notwithstanding.

Rating: 4/5
