Chapter i. Premiere Pro CS3: Good Chemistry

i. Premiere Pro CS3: Good Chemistry

A logo can say a lot about the product it represents. The logos for each program in Adobe’s Creative Suite 3 (CS3) lineup—a plain two-letter abbreviation of the program’s name—may remind you of the periodic table of chemical elements. You remember it from school: It’s the chart that lists the irreducible constituents of all things, starting with hydrogen. No doubt, Adobe wants you to think of the CS3 programs as the essential building blocks of your creative process. For creators of dynamic media—video for broadcast, DVD, the Web, or mobile devices—Adobe offers a collection of software called, the Production Premium CS3. And for video editors, the centerpiece of the collection is Premiere Pro CS3.

Until now, a Mac user’s metaphorical chart had some conspicuous gaps where video editing and DVD software should have been. Back in 2003, Adobe reinvented the cross-platform Premiere 6.5 as the Windows-only Premiere Pro. With Apple aggressively developing its own video postproduction software, it had simply become impractical for Adobe to develop their editing software for both PowerPC-based Macs and Intel-based Windows computers. But now that Macs run on Intel processors, editors using either platform have access to the full range of tools in Adobe’s creative laboratory, including Premiere Pro.
