Adobe Systems Inc. has
released an update
for the Macintosh version of its popular digital video editing solution Premiere. Please note that the new version, 6.01, has been offered as a public beta release.
With Premiere, users are able to import digital video, edit it, add special effects, titling, and other changes, then export back out to video or to other formats. The software provides integration with other Adobe applications, as well.
Changes in Premiere 6.01 beta include:
Performance improvements for better three-point editing.
Performance improvements to the initial launch of the program when using a realtime board with hardware filter effects.
Video preview files are now preserved when toggling audio tracks on and off.
Equal signs (“=”) can now be used in a URL in marker text without problems. Previously, any text after the “=” was lost.
14.985 clips can be handled in Premiere.
Pixel aspects are correctly stored in QuickTime files.
The timecode offset field works for RS232/422 device control.
Drop-replacing transitions on the timeline now correctly sets the direction. Previously the direction would reset to the default.
Custom workspaces can be saved properly on Japanese operating systems.
Corrects problem for Matrox RTMac. Previously users of this system could not open record settings on the initial attempt.
Corrects sync problems for users of Pinnacle CineWave and Aurora Igniter, especially when crossing black (no video) sections of the timeline.
The 2.4MB update requires that Adobe Premiere 6.0 be installed. More info is available from the Web link above.
