Adobe’s Premiere Express is a free Web-based video editing and “remixing” technology that the company introduced earlier this year with
Photobucket, the photo sharing service. Now it’s being used on the
MTV.com Web sites, as well.
Premiere Express leverages
Adobe’s Flash 9 technology, and doesn’t require any additional plug-ins or special software downloads to work. As a result, it works on both
Mac OS X and Windows platforms.
YouTube reveals the technology on its
TestTube site, where
YouTube users can edit and assemble videos and publish remixes to
YouTube. It’s also being used at
MTV.com as part of a contest where users can remix
Kelly Clarksons new music video, Never Again — the winner gets a chance to play their music video remix on the
MTV network. Photobucket users have been using Premiere Express since February to create video remixes and slideshows.
