New Interface and Workspaces

Adobe Premiere Pro 2.0 debuts a new user interface that will allow you to spend less time adjusting your desktop layout and more time actually producing video. Instead of a main window plus a series of separately floating palettes, the entire workspace is now contained within the application window itself, organized into docked groups of stacked, tabbed panels that automatically resize to maintain full utilization of available space. This new environment is more efficient and less cluttered, eliminating the headache of overlapping or hidden windows and palettes. In most situations, you’ll now find it much easier to rearrange your workspace and quickly access the controls you need. But you can still easily create floating windows for panels or sets of panels, which can be especially useful for taking full advantage of two monitors.

Adobe Bridge

Adobe Bridge is a centralized file-management solution that makes it easy and efficient to browse, organize, and select content for your Adobe Premiere Pro 2.0 projects. A time-saving workflow enhancement, Adobe Bridge offers multiple ways of viewing your assets, as well as extensive, customizable XMP metadata support that puts you in full control of how to organize and search your files.

Proxy Editing

The introduction of Proxy editing in Adobe Premiere Pro 2.0 not only means that you can edit faster—particularly for HD projects—but also that you can make progress on your high-resolution projects even when you are working away from high-end, video-optimized machines.

Proxy editing is similar to offline editing in that lower-resolution clips stand in for the full-resolution files that will be used to finish the final output. Proxies may be created from video or audio/video master clips, subclips, or track items after a project’s master clips are captured at full-resolution. Depending on codec settings, proxies can help speed up your editing because they render faster and they require less computing power and storage space than the master files from which they are derived.

Unlike regular offline editing, Adobe Premiere Pro’s proxy editing allows a high-resolution master clip to be instantly swapped in and out of the project at any point in the workflow by simply changing its proxy enable/ disable setting. If you don’t have the disc space to keep all the master clips online, however, you can delete them from your disk and use proxies instead. You can also retain the master clips on one workstation while transferring proxies to another. When you’re done editing with a proxy, either recapture the master clip at full-resolution, or re-link the proxy back to its original master clip.
