I saw a brief demo of what the new CS5.5 suite could do at NAB and was very impressed. I am still flirting with Premiere, what I saw at NAB could turn me from Final Cut Pro…or at the least make me use it as an additional tool. With Final Cut X due out in June it’s really interesting times. I am fascinated to see how radically new Final Cut X is…what was shown was really cool. Final Cut Pro is and has been my editing tool of choice since version 1…but I want to learn another tool. I can cut on Avid and Final Cut. It’s time I got my head fully around Premiere and more importantly it’s superb integration with the amazing After Effects. It’s this what has impressed me the most. I need to up my post game!
On Wednesday May the 11th Adobe are taking over one of the cinemas at Vue in Fulham (take the tube as parking in the car park is extortionate!) to show off CS 5.5 and I have just registered to go along. Loads of Adobe evangelists will be there including my friend Jason Levine who is a very entertaining public speaker. If like me you are curious about the new suite or are already knee deep in CS5 come along. It should be an interesting day…and hey, if whilst there it doesn’t rock your boat we can always sneak out into another screen and catch something else Popcorn is on me!!
