Adobe Premiere Pro CS6 for Windows is a mature, professional nonlinear editor that has a host of fresh tricks up its sleeve. By now well-known to a broad range of professional editors and enthhusiasts, Premiere Pro gets even more familiar for its CS6 version. Over 50 enhancements to the workflow are designed to put it in line with those of other NLEs, which helps flatten the learning curve for those editors who are curious to switch over from other programs. And with a revamped interface that offers customizable button bars, it's even easier to mold Premiere Pro CS6 to your own preferences.

As with previous versions, Premiere Pro CS6 allows you to work natively with just about any major tapeless format that you can imagine – no transcoding or rewrapping required. This version adds support for the Canon EOS C300, ARRI Alexa, the RED Scarlet-X, and 5K footage from RED Epic. There's also integration with Adobe's Prelude software (sold separately), which eases import & logging for high-volume environments.

As for the brass tacks of editing footage, Adobe Premiere Pro CS6 expands its multicam capabilities, adds tools (Warp Stabilizer and Rolling Shutter Repair effects), accelerates and fortifies its 64-bit Mercury playback engine, and introduces productive little touches such as expanded trimming options and the ability to edit without stopping playback.

Before export, you'll find Premiere Pro's Three-Way Color Corrector more intuitive to use for primary and secondary color correction, and it features Photoshop-style auto-correct functions. The integrated Encore CS6 authoring software is now 64 bit, and DVD & Blu-ray Disc authoring are both enhanced. For every other output type, Adobe Media Encoder adds a Preset Browser and makes it easy to quickly encode video to almost any combination of target output formats, including HDTV, Android & iOS devices, and files for video-sharing sites.

      Comments about Adobe Premiere Pro CS6 for Windows:

      I recently purchased Adobe Primiere Pro CS6 and have been very happy with the product. Although this is the first video editing software I have purchased, I found it easy to use and had lots of good features. I am an Adobe software Creative Suite user for years and this product did not dissapoint me. I work for a church as a media specialist and edit every week. The only thing I found difficult about the product was the menus were a little hard to read. The range of everything it could do tended to also be a little overwhelming at times, but this is typical of Adobie Creative products.

        Comments about Adobe Premiere Pro CS6 for Windows:

        I bought this to use on a high-end workstation (i7-3960x, 64GB RAM, RAID disks and SSD disk) and find that it is all but unusable due to the many bugs in the software and useless documentation and product support from Adobe.

        The package is very powerful, except that many of the features do not work correctly. The multicamera editing, which is a particular reason I got it, has many problems. I have yet to finish a 3hr long event production with 3 HD camera angles due to the various bugs.

        1) It does not like to work with AVCHD clips that span files. Two of my cameras are of that nature. There is a bug where the program starts very high disk access rates and gets lost and freezes. Adobe can't be bothered to fix it. Their solution is to have you transcode everything on bringing the footage into the editor. This takes hours for each track, and the resulting intermediate files are 300-500GB.

        After doing that, the multicamera seems to work abit better, but it still stops suddenly during editing or playback, often mangles the audio stream, requiring the program to be closed and restarted. When it stops, it changes camera angles on you and drops out of record mode.

        The final insult is that in multicamera mode, the timeline does not display tha audio wave forms so that you can sync a different audio track, which many event productions (concerts, etc.) need because the audio captured with the video camera is rarely very high quality.

        Also, when attempting to sync multiple cameras with an audio track, the program does not allow you to move the video in less than frame increments, even though the documentation tells you to turn off snap mode. Doing so makes no difference, except that you can slide the audio less than a full video frame, but then what do you do for the next camera?

        The zoom in to display the audio waveforms for syncing is inadequate, as you can get nowhere near to the sample resolution preferred for doing such syncing.

        I have had at least three outright program exceptions (crashes - Adobe Premiere Pro has stopped working - windows is checking for a solution - for which there is none) in the last two weeks.

        It may be if you are editing a lot of short clips for short attention span theatre, then this program might work. But it is far, far from professional grade - just professionally priced. Stay away from this unless you have a masochistic streak and lots of extra cash.
