Adobe Photoshop CS3 integration
Import and animate Adobe Photoshop layers. Edit still images from Adobe Premiere Pro CS3 with Photoshop CS3. Automatically create Photoshop files to match the current project’s frame size and aspect ratio.
Direct-to-disk recording with included Adobe OnLocation CS3
Save tape and time by eliminating capture from your production process. Record SD and HD video directly to hard disk using Adobe OnLocation CS3 software, included with Adobe Premiere Pro CS3. Instantly review each shot without shuttling tape. Adobe OnLocation automatically detects and flags problems to provide the best results.
Adobe After Effects plug-in compatibility
Take advantage of After Effects software plug-ins to expand your effects options. Most After Effects plug-ins are compatible with Adobe Premiere Pro CS3.
Adobe Illustrator integration
Open Adobe Illustrator files in Adobe Premiere Pro CS3. When scaling an image in Adobe Premiere Pro, the image is rerasterized, ensuring that image quality remains pristine.
Adobe Soundbooth integration
Send audio files directly to Adobe Soundbooth software for editing, and hear changes immediately in the Adobe Premiere Pro CS3 timeline.
Adobe Encore CS3 integration
Save time in the authoring process by sending media with timeline markers directly to Adobe Encore CS3 for interactive authoring for Blu-ray Disc, DVD, and the web.
Customizable user interface
Adjust the Adobe Premiere Pro CS3 interface to fit any editing style, workflow, and environment. Panels can be configured in many arrangements and across multiple monitors. Use the docked interface to simultaneously adjust all windows.
Multiple project panels with smart file search
Find files faster with search tools that instantly update results as you type. Sort and organize assets into multiple project panels, each with its own graphical or text view setting. Display and handle media files, making project management easier and more efficient.
Easily archive media, reclaim drive space, and move between offline and online environments. Consolidate projects by selecting and moving actual media used in a project to a single location for archiving and storage management.
File management with Adobe Bridge
Work more efficiently by using Adobe Bridge CS3 to search for and access your project files, preview and apply settings, run batch processes, and tag assets with XMP metadata.
Customizable keyboard shortcuts
Personalize your experience by creating multiple keyboard maps for different tasks or to support multiple users. Export your own shortcut sets, allowing you to be productive immediately when working with Adobe Premiere Pro on other systems.
Set the timeline to scroll smoothly under a stationary indicator during playback, or adjust it to advance one page as the playback indicator reaches the edge of the window.
Assignable panel shortcuts
Switch between panels using keyboard shortcuts that save time and mouse fatigue.
No audio rendering with nested sequences
Play nested sequences immediately without having to render audio. This can save time when working with multicam sequences.
Realize your vision
View multiple video tracks from a multiple-camera shoot, easily sync via timecode, and edit by switching between tracks in real time. Rerecord sections of your edit, make fine adjustments using standard timeline editing tools, and easily adjust color correction across multiple shots, even after editing.
Advanced color-correction tools
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.
Use slow motion to create dramatic effects that focus on the action. With a streamlined, on-clip interface, the time remapping feature makes it easy to speed up, slow down, reverse, and hold frames with precision.
Professional on-set monitoring with Adobe OnLocation CS3
Maximize camera image quality during shoots by using Adobe OnLocation CS3 to quickly calibrate your camera, check levels, and monitor your signal. Use simple tools that function like their hardware equivalents to get results quickly and easily. The virtual reference monitor, waveform monitor, vectorscope, and audio spectrum analyzer help you avoid problems and improve quality when shooting.
Multiple nestable timelines
Edit each section or sequence of your project on its own timeline. Nest each timeline section into a master timeline while maintaining full access to every edit.
Professional internal scopes
Monitor luma and chroma levels on every line with the built-in waveform monitor and vectorscope. Display Waveform IRE information in standard, YCbCr Parade, RGB Parade, or combined modes.
Create sophisticated text and graphics titles from scratch, from professionally designed templates, or from user-defined styles.
10-bit and 16-bit color resolution support
Maintain source integrity with support for 10-bit video and 16-bit PSD files.
32-bit internal color processing
Maintain maximum image quality with subtle and dramatic changes to color, contrast, and exposure, free of the banding and artifacts caused by lower bit-depth processing.
Advanced audio editing
Create 5.1 surround-sound audio mixes, edit audio with individual sample precision, and apply clip- and track-based effects, using the included VST plug-ins or your own.
Surround sound editing
Create and manipulate 5.1 multichannel audio to produce true surround sound and other richly layered audio experiences.
Video clip and timeline effects
Apply powerful visual and motion effects to your clips with high-quality built-in effects. An almost unlimited choice of additional effects is available thanks to the wide range of After Effects compatible plug-ins for video and VST plug-ins for audio.
Advanced subclip creation and editing
Break master clips into smaller subclips for more flexible editing, especially when working with large sections of content. Treat subclips like any other video clip by trimming, applying effects, renaming, and more.
Audio clip and track effects
Apply multiple audio effects to any audio clip or track and work with third-party VST-format audio plug-ins. Enjoy audio effects and editing unequaled by any other nonlinear editor and by most audio software.
Control the volume and pan/balance settings of your audio tracks with a software version of an audio mixer. Use advanced features like channel inserts, auxiliary sends and returns, automation, and more.
Hundreds of video and audio filters and effects
Explore hundreds of high-quality production and design filters and effects to restore and enhance your video, graphics, and audio.
Use the same Timewarp effect found in After Effects to create high-quality slow motion through pixel-motion analysis. The Timewarp filter gives precise keyframe control over every parameter, producing the highest quality results on the most difficult source content.
Easily swap out clips in the timeline without having to re-create settings. Replace any clip in the timeline with a new clip that preserves the original clip’s attributes. All effects and keyframes are retained, and, if necessary, the new clip is trimmed to fit the duration of the original one.
Ripple, rolling, slip-and-slide edits
Make complex edits in one step using the advanced editing tools professionals depend on. Trim and adjust footage with single actions that would otherwise require multiple steps.
Instantly improve your video image quality with filters like those in Photoshop, including Auto Color, Auto Contrast, and Shadows/Highlights.
Create your own effects presets. Save simple and complex effects parameters as a custom preset that you can quickly apply to any clip in any project.
Lighting Effects filter
Add a spot, directional, or omni light to your video footage. Create multiple lights to see different looks on different parts of a scene.
Audio sample-level editing
Adjust audio clips with a precision of up to 1/96,000 of a second. Set precise L- and J-cuts. Eliminate small pops, crackles, and other unwanted audio elements.
Create smooth audio crossfades and other audio changes with a minimal number of keyframes. Adobe Premiere Pro CS3 creates fewer audio keyframes over a given time interval, simplifying editing and preserving system resources.
Animated track-matte workflow
Easily create traveling mattes by applying effects and animation to individual track-matte clips.
Precise keyframe controls with Bezier handles
Control any audio and video effect parameter using comprehensive keyframe controls that mirror those found in After Effects. Get precise control using Bezier handles to finesse the shape of parameter curves.
