Setting up 3rd party I/O Hardware and CS6


Lately I’ve been getting a lot questions from Premiere Pro users about I/O cards from AJA, Matrox, Black Magic, and Blue Fish. In many cases its been more about driver version requirements matching the version of Premiere Pro CS6 that they are using. As of the writing of this article, Premiere Pro CS6 has been updated to 6.03 for Windows and 6.02 for Mac.

Remember with Premiere Pro CS6 we introduced Adobe Mercury Transmit which is a set of APIs (Application Program Interface) added to Premiere Pro to allow 3rd parties to have direct access to the Adobe Mercury Playback Engine and it’s acceleration. This is a very different method of I/O from previous versions of Premiere or Premiere Pro.

There are several common setup issues that I keep seeing first hand from customers as well as the user to user forums that support our ProVideo & Audio products (many thanks to the people that reply to those posts).

I’ve been working with the leading 3rd party I/O companies that support Premiere Pro and our other Pro Video/Audio tools and will be posting links here. Please feel free to pass this information on to other forums. My main goal is to get people familiar with how setup needs to be done to make it easier to identify hardware driver or Adobe issues.

New Premiere Pro users that are used to FCP or Avid set ups should find these setup videos helpful as well.

Native Camera workflow guides & Top 10 Reasons to Switch to Premiere Pro CS6

I’ve been getting a lot questions on native camera workflows and we have created a set of guides based on camera manufacture. This is not a complete list of what we support but a great starting point for new users. Also keep in mind that Cameras like the awesome new GoPro Hero2 and other H264 devices (iOS/Android cameras) also work without issue- Just import and edit. You will notice a very cool new CS6 feature when adding a clip to a new Sequence – it will now check to see if the Sequence settings match the clip and if it does not match , it will offer to change the settings if it’s the first clip brought into the timeline. While not a new feature for other NLEs, it’s new for Premiere Pro CS6. We also have new support for ARRI RAW as well.

** I should point out that in the video I mention the Telsa 2750 board when in fact it’s the 2075 board – sorry for the confusion….

Premiere Pro 4.2 & AVC-Intra

The new Premiere Pro CS4 4.2 and Adobe Media Encoder CS4 4.2 offer new improvements and enhancements to CS4 video workflows. With the 4.2 update, Premiere Pro now offers users of Panasonic’s AVC-Intra line of P2 cameras the chance to edit in native AVC-Intra format. This has been a longtime coming for AVC-Intra users and they can now enjoy the advantages of Adobe CS4 tapeless workflows and native editing. Several other enhancements to Premiere Pro 4.2 were also updated, like the support for FinalCut 7 import. I have outlined several of the updates and fixes below. I have also listed the "known issues" in 4.2 as well.
