Video editing with Adobe Premiere

My video tour of Adobe’s biggest applications continues with Premiere. This is for video editing geeks who might want to see what’s up in Adobe’s latest video editing suite.

Again, Adobe did not pay me to come over and do these interviews (Adobe has contracted with PodTech in the past to do some podcasts but that was last year and separate from these efforts). I wanted to get a look inside Adobe’s latest CS3 stuff. I still have a couple of teams I want to film up in Adobe’s Seattle office. I hope you enjoyed this series, I sure learned a lot doing it.

Here’s my whole collection of Adobe videos so far:

Adobe Premiere CS3 49 minutes.
Adobe Photoshop CS3 53 minutes.
Adobe Illustrator CS3 47 minutes.
Adobe Flash/Flex architecture overview 30 minutes.
Adobe Flex goes open source 25 minutes.
Adobe Flash CS3 overview 55 minutes.
Adobe Apollo overview 43 minutes.
Adobe Dreamweaver CS3 34 minutes.
Adobe Connect overview 29 minutes.
Adobe Acrobat 8.0 19 minutes.

This whole series was paid for by my sponsor, Seagate who makes the storage devices we produce our shows on.

  1. @2 Maybe Adobe didn’t pay you directly…BUT… I do note their prominent logo under PodTech’s list of sponsors. Things that make you go…hmmmmmm…

    Why do you always bring up the WSJ when disclosure comes into question? We aren’t talking about the WSJ, we are talking about PodTech.

  3. Christopher: InDesign is one of the teams that’s located in Seattle. I won’t be able to get up there until Gnomedex.

    Andrew: We use FinalCut Pro on the Mac. Premiere looks pretty good, though.

  5. Robert,

    Can you remind us again what technology you use for the editing and final compression of your Video Blogs ? A previous version of Premiere ? Or some other applications ?

    Thanks

  7. Finally with time-remapping, how such a basic feature was left out is beyond reason. OnLocation is a nice touch (rip Serious Magic), but not so with Audition’s ax. Encore DVD, like finally. CS3 has better AE and third party filter/fx support, that’s a plus. But with FCS 2, Avid and all, CS3 is design apps heavy hitter, with a bundle strategy as the main hook. Adobe always been weak in video, CS2 was a disaster, least CS3 passes some muster, I haven’t thrown it in the river yet. But in short, ain’t giving up Vegas.

    PS – Where’s the two-pass FLV encoding? I miss that?

  9. Well, my friends who work in the business give me heck everytime they see me when I’m not very specific about disclosures. So, yeah, I’m overboard (does the Wall Street Journal disclose this well?) but I think it’s worth doing.

  11. Thanks for this great review series Robert!

    I think you are worrying too much about commercialism disclaimers lately (is that from the Pay to Post conference mini-scandal?) though it’s nice of you to note these things. You’ve got a lot of credibility from years of work – this is good enough for me.
