These days more and more hardcore editors are being won over by Premiere Pro CS5. Why? Performance! They are particularly blown away when evaluating a system that contains a powerful video card such as Nvidia’s Quadro FX 4800. A video card like this allows the Mercury Playback Engine to perform at its peak.
In this recent article over at Pro Video Coalition, editor Scott Simmons of the Editblog on PVC puts Premiere Pro CS5 through its paces. Simmons is impressed by the real-time performance of Premiere Pro CS5 coupled with the Quadro FX 4800. This is especially noticeable when he adds layers of video, each containing intensive filters and effects. In the article, Simmons drops Premiere Pro’s resolution to 1/2 and sees no visual degradation of the image. With that, he adds more and more effects “far beyond anything I would ever attempt in everyday editing”. Personally, I’ve never heard an editor say that, have you?
