    "Excellent Editing software. Prefer over the latest FCP."

    May 21, 2012  |   By Stevieboyhill

    Version: Adobe Premiere Pro CS5.5

    Pros

    Does everything i want from a editing app. Easy interface and excellent export results. Still testing the HD capabilities but looking good so far. NVIDIA graphic card really help the rendering shift along and help real time playback.

    Cons

    Can occasionally get a bit tetchy but sorted when upgraded RAM and needs decent NVIDIA graphic card

    Summary

    Good value package that can give proffessional results

    Version: Adobe Premiere Pro CS5.5

    Pros

    All I can think of this software already has.

    Cons

    sometimes crashes

    Summary

    This is the best video editing software I have ever tried. I like this even better than Final Cut Pro from Apple. I have all my home videos made with Premiere. Bravo Premiere! Thank You Adobe!

    "Best Editing Software I've used!"

    November 11, 2010  |   By claytonorgles

    Version: Adobe Premiere Pro CS5.5

    Pros

    Excellent editing speed and set of tools. Supports native DSLR video playback; great for my 7D footage, because I don't have to convert the files or do proxy editing. The workflow is much faster with other codecs as well, including HDV and AVCHD.

    Cons

    Need to install a newer graphics card to properly utilize the new mercury playback engine (still runs fine without it though).

    Summary

    Fantastic editing software with great speed and performance when editing. I've used a number of different editing programs including both Avid Media Composer 5 and Final Cut Pro 7, and In my personal opinion, Premiere Pro CS5 beats both of them in speed and usability. The small things I had difficulty doing on FCP and the Avid (such as right clicking and going to change speed when manipulating audio) works completely flawlessly in Pr CS5, whilst in Final Cut, It won't let me do that for some reason?

    It handles a number of different codecs wonderfully. I've used HDV, DV, H.264 and AVCHD all in one sequence without rendering and have received awesome playback performance. The program barely crashes at all now, so the issues with previous versions of the program have obviously been met. There's not a lot to say really; it lets you focus on story telling, and less on worrying about rendering and converting files. Download the trial and try it out! You won't be disappointed.

    The only peeve I have, is that you'll need to buy a new graphics card to use the new playback engine properly. Without it, you'll have the same playback functionality as previous versions, meaning there will be little DSLR video acceleration. Other than that though, it's fantastic!

    "The trial does not do HDV!!!"

    August 10, 2010  |   By pixelriffic

    Version: Adobe Premiere Pro CS5.5

    Pros

    Familiar interface if you use After Effects.

    Cons

    HDV not supported in trial version.

    Summary

    I tried a very early version of Premiere many years ago. It was not very stable in the early days. A friend is singing the praises of CS5, so I thought I'd give it a go. Turns out the trial only supports DV and not HDV?!?!?!

    Over an hour of download and installing was pretty much wasted for me. All the work I do now is HDV or better. I wanted to see how preview and render performance was with HDV. How it does in DV is of no use to me. It's a time limited trial, and I do not see why they disabled HDV support in the trial version.
