Editing DSLR Video in the NEW Adobe Premiere Pro CS5



In this brief video, Adobe's Worldwide Video/Audio Evangelist Jason Levine will show you the incredible power and ease of NATIVELY editing DSLR footage in Premiere Pro CS5.

That's right. Straight from the camera to the timeline. No transcoding; no proxies. Import your videos through Adobe Bridge/Photo Downloader, or pull content directly off your CF/XD/SD/Express/PCMCIA card from a card reader. Full frame-size, mixed frame rates, all living together, harmoniously, in the Premiere Pro CS5 timeline. And what makes it all possible? The incredible new 64-bit Mercury Playback Engine. Oh, and Premiere Pro CS5 is a native 64-bit app as well now. 😉

  1. Hi Terry, nothing to do with your review but the lady in the photo at the top right, I was just wondering who she is? She has a very interesting face 🙂

  2. I’d like to see some DSLR-oriented tutorials that are even more basic than this. Some of us don’t know anything about making or editing video, but we want to get started.

  3. I was under the impression that the Mercury Rendering Engine required certain NVIDIA video cards in order to work with HDSLR footage in real time without transcoding.

    1. The Mercury engine also has a software only component. Granted with an Nvidia card you can get MORE layers of HD, but if your computer is fast enough you’ll still benefit from Mercury in software even without the Nvidia card.
