AVC HD on Premiere Pro
Update 10-3-08 – CS4 has been announced and included in Premiere Pro CS4 is native AVCHD editing. Please go visit the Adobe website and check out all of the new features that are a part of Production Premium and Premiere Pro CS4
Update 6-16-08 – I’ve posted another entry that outlines several compatible solutions and one that you should take a look at. Here it is AVC HD and Premiere Pro Revisited
Main Concept, a company that Adobe has long worked with just announced and shipped their MPEG Pro HD 3 plugin for PC. This new package delivers a variety of new editing capabilities to Premiere Pro 2 and CS3 users including AVC-HD.
I can’t say that I’ve tried it yet: I just got a serial # today. Chances are that Dave Helmly will do a piece on this once he’s put it thru it’s paces. If so, I’ll be sure to post a link. Still, I thought it worth mentioning since AVC-HD has been in asked about so much recently.
In addition to AVC-HD, it supports a variety of Sony formats including XDCAM, XDCAM HD and now XDCAM EX.
There’s a whole bunch to dig into and it looks like they already have a trial download set up so download it, give it a try and let me know what you think.
When I get a chance to put it thru its paces, I’ll be sure to let you know what I find.
