Adobe Systems Inc. has released
a new update
to Premiere 6, its digital video editing application. The new version, 6.01, can be downloaded from Adobe’s servers now.
With Premiere 6, you can prepare video for the Web or output back to tape. It supports DV capture from FireWire-equipped Macs and camcorders, features advanced tools for editing video, and offers integration with other Adobe products.
Changes in Adobe Premiere 6.01 are listed as follows:
Performance improvements for better three-point editing
Performance improvements to the initial launch of the program when using a real-time 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
In order to make use of the 615K update, you’ll need to have Adobe Premiere 6.0 installed. Adobe notes that if you’ve already applied an update to Premiere 6.0, you may encounter problems using this update, which may necessitate reinstalling a fresh copy from the Adobe Premiere 6.0 CD.
