Adobe Premiere Pro CS4, Adobe's flagship digital video editing application, offers both Mac and Windows users an all-in-one tool that includes Adobe Encore CS4 (for authoring DVDs) and Adobe OnLocation CS4 (a workflow management tool thatís now cross-platform and redesigned in this version).
This project-based book covers not just the basics of working with audio,creating transitions, and producing titles, but also provides a clear roadmap for using Premiere Pro most efficiently for your editing projects and utilizing tools such as Adobe Dynamic Link (previously only available in Creative Suite Production Premium), Soundbooth, and the components in the Creative Suite. Readers will also learn how to use the editing tools new to this version, as well as other new features such as direct-to-disk recording, batch encoding, project intelligence with XMP metadata support, Blu-ray Disc output that can be easily transferable to the Web, and Speech Search, a new tool that makes dialog in your video assets searchable. Best of all, the book's accompanying DVD includes real footage that you can practice on.
