My Adobe Premiere Pro NEXT Top Ten!

COW Blogs : walter biscardi's Blog : My Adobe Premiere Pro NEXT Top Ten!
The fine folks at Adobe gave me a sneak peek test drive of the new Adobe Premiere Pro NEXT and I have to say, WOW. Even better than the experience of seeing it at NAB. First thing that jumps out at me is the speed and responsiveness of the entire system. I was testing on a three year old iMac with a FW800 RAID and it was like I was using two completely different systems switching back and forth between NEXT and CS6.

The second this is just how much ADOBE LISTENED to what the end users were asking for. Sure there are some really nice “new features” but the features that matter to me the most are the ones that will make our daily lives much easier and efficient. In that regard, Adobe completely hit it out of the park.

So in just 90 seconds, here’s my Top Ten new features in Premiere Pro NEXT. Nothing super sexy here, just good workflow improvements.

@My Adobe Premiere Pro NEXT Top Ten!

Just one question, can you right-click on a transition and change the duration and/or the start/end of it a la FCP or even better a dialog box a la AVID?

Thank you, Walter. These improvements are huge. My last premiere edit was so frustrating because of these issues. I mark an in and an out on my timeline and you have to ask me which out point do I want to use??? Really?? I have a project in July that will be using D5, Canon and GoPro footage. Do you think Premiere would work better than Avid? I will be at the week long shoot editing dailies for the client to view.
Any thoughts?

FWIW...

"if you read the Adobe Creative Cloud FAQ, it states that you can be disconnected from the internet for as long as 180 days and still operate. Who is disconnected from the internet for that long? No one."

Wrong! ;-) People who live in the mountains (or in the middle of a corn field) or are on assignment in places with little to no internet service! For us, it's very frustrating to see Adobe moving to this "cloud only" imperative.

Hopefully "everything will be all right," but when we hear phrases like "up to 180 days" it definitely makes me nervous. Why not just 180 days (no "up to"). Also, what might happen within those 180 days (or 30 days, or 15 days) that could prevent full function of the software? Which is to say, will there be functions that I wasn't using that I'd like to implement while in the field that in the "old days" I could have just popped in a disk to make work? I'm assuming this will be an issue.

If you are truly going to be out of internet connection for a long time, I believe Adobe is planning arrangements for that. You would have to contact them to make sure, but I'm sure that has been addressed internally.

Also, regarding the above comment "tethered to the internet", if you read the Adobe Creative Cloud FAQ, it states that you can be disconnected from the internet for as long as 180 days and still operate. Who is disconnected from the internet for that long? No one.

Lost in all the hysteria is an absolutely solid, hit it out of the park, upgrade by Adobe to Premiere Pro CC.

A "subscription" that's tethered to the Internet forever? NOPE.
by Palmer Woodrow
Too bad Adobe has essentially killed its entire product line with this insulting and asinine "subscription" model that requires your system to be tethered to the Internet for as long as you rent the software.

It doesn't matter what features they add after instituting this rip-off.

Really? I thought this was a professional community here. If you can't swing $50/month for an amazing suite of professional tools that you use to generate your income, then perhaps you're in the wrong profession. I mean ffs, it's less than $2/day. Up your rate by $0.25/hour and your covered. And heck, if we're talking about the difference between what you're paying presently and what Adobe are now asking that rate is even less...

But by all means, feel free to ditch Adobe. Good luck finding a suite of regularly updated apps that even come close to what Adobe CC offers for $600/year.

All that being said, I reckon Adobe could appease many of the detractors by offering a slightly discounted Production CC subscription, for those who don't need the superfluous apps. Just a thought.

Ah yes, the standard "this is for professionals" excuse, a time-honored tradition for apologists trying to excuse Adobe's poor UI, ongoing defects, and now this rip-off.

And if that's not good enough, you've also snuck in the trendy "you're poor" attempt at an insult. You call that professional? It's infantile. It also ignores the fact that the price isn't the sole offense here. You're also essentially tethered to the Internet and Adobe's servers, regardless of whether it's once a week, a month, or a year that you have to "check in" to perpetuate the use of software you BOUGHT.

But that's the thing, isn't it? Now you're RENTING the software on a week-to-week basis. And rents can be jacked up at any time. And software maintenance can essentially be abandoned (see: Illustrator).

Put aside your cognitive dissonance and stand up for yourself. Or at least stop trying to insult people who do, because that's pathetic.

The Premiere Pro CS UI (in fact CS6 UI) are not poor by any means. Many engineering shortcomings in CS6 but those are pretty much all addressed in CC.

Adobe's over 500,000 people on Creative Cloud so it's obviously working for them. That number will only increase with the CC only move. If it's not for you, then Avid is a very very good choice, the MC7 release is sweet.

Holding out for Adobe to change course could be long to never so do what's right for you and your business. Calling other people names certainly will get you nowhere with Adobe nor with anyone on this thread.

Quick. Simple. Terrific.

Thanks Walter!

Production is fun - but lets not forget: Nobody ever died on the video table!

Also, please tell me that DIRECT selection of a clip will now trump TRACK selection, especially as it pertains to Match Frame.

And make Trim Mode, in every piece of edit software ever written, work EXACTLY like it has in the AVID for fifteen years. It is one of a few things that I always miss about the AVID. People that never edited on AVID don't understand this, but believe me, it's way better than Final Cut or Premiere (although I can't speak for X).

And yes, I fill out the feature requests all the time...

All good. Now, lets get the multicam sorted. It’s the one major area stops me from adopting PP as an everyday editor!

Thank you Walter and thank you Adobe. The little things are huge! There a few more I've heard about as well, but still much work to do. Keep 'em coming!

Really looking forward to PPro CC!

That dialog box when making an edit with 4 marks has been one of the most annoying things ever, in ANY software. However, if they are giving me a way to get rid of it, they also need to allow me to map "Fit to Fill" to the keyboard. Maybe they have?

You'll have to ask Adobe or wait until June 17th. As you can imagine, while they allowed me to play with the software, here were a lot of restrictions on what I could actually show because the software is still being finalized. Some features I saw may disappear and others may added.

Sorry I can't answer your question directly......
