Adobe Premiere 6.5
unmatched hardware support and real-time editing capabilities, Adobe
Premiere 6.5 software is the essential tool for creating video for DVD,
videotape, the Web, and more.
Adobe Premiere has traditionally been a wonderful video
editing program. It has an extremely full feature set that will allow
you to do almost anything to your video. Also, Premiere has got the
best documentation and tutorials I've seen in a video editing software.
Version 6.5 of Adobe Premiere introduces some more excellent features
to an already powerful software. New features include a real-time preview
option, a Title Designer, MPEG-2 export, DVD authoring, powerful audio
tools, and more.
Adobe Premiere 6.5 is an excellent video editing package
for the serious video editing professionals. If you're just starting
out with video editing, you may prefer a more intutive program like
Pinnacle Studio 8. However, those
beginners looking for a package that will long outlive their video editing
needs for many years to come, will find a great product in Adobe Premiere.
If there's only one video editing software I can recommend
to home video makers, this is the one.
