Adobe Production Studio to Be Available for Both Mac and Windows

Adobe says that the next version of Adobe Production Studio, the integrated video and audio post-production tool set that is part of the Creative Suite family, will be available for both the Macintosh and Windows platforms. Film, video and web professionals currently using Adobe After Effects, Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator on the Mac will soon be able to harness the power of completely new Macintosh releases of Adobe Premiere Pro, Adobe Encore DVD and Adobe Soundbooth - all key components of an upcoming milestone revision to Adobe Production Studio.

Adobe Production Studio creates an efficient post-production workflow enabling creative professionals to move smoothly between the full range of post-production tasks while remaining focused on their creative vision. The product combines Adobe's award-winning applications, including Adobe After Effects for compositing, effects and animation, Adobe Premiere Pro for non-linear editing, Adobe Encore DVD for DVD authoring, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, as well as the time-saving workflow enhancements offered by Adobe Dynamic Link. Dynamic Link eliminates the need for rendering when moving motion graphics and visual effects from Adobe After Effects to the real-time HD, SD and DV editing environment in Adobe Premiere Pro and Adobe Encore DVD.

Adobe Soundbooth is designed to enable creative professionals to produce high-quality audio. Offering the ability to quickly record, edit, and customize audio and music for web and video production, Adobe Soundbooth makes the delivery of pristine sound tracks fast and efficient. Adobe Soundbooth will take the place of Adobe Audition in the next version of Adobe Production Studio. Adobe Audition will continue to be developed for audio professionals as a stand-alone product for Windows.

Adobe video technologies - including Adobe Production Studio, Flash Media Server for streaming interactive media applications and Flash Video for easy video playback across the Internet - are having a profound impact on how broadcast and video content is being distributed. Today, thanks to Adobe's Emmy-award winning Flash Video software, television shows such as Lost, Desperate Housewives, Grey's Anatomy and Friday Night Lights are being delivered online, while the technology also powers the video capabilities of social networking sites like YouTube and MySpace.
