Recently, Premiere Pro product manager Al Mooney presented a seminar introducing improvements in Premiere Pro CS6.
This seminar was recorded before Premiere Pro CS6 was available. Premiere Pro CS6 is now available, as are other professional video and audio applications in Creative Suite 6 Production Premium, including Adobe Prelude and SpeedGrade. You can order CS6 Production Premium now … or try it free for 30 days.
For details of all that’s new and changed in Premiere Pro CS6, see this page.
