Adobe Premiere 6.0 allows users to edit digital video on a desktop and publish it to the Web in multiple formats, including RealNetworks RealMedia, Microsoft WindowsMedia and Apple QuickTime, quickly and easily. This new version is being dubbed "the tool of choice for DV professionals" because of its built-in support for a large selection of DV devices on Macintosh and Windows platforms. The new version boasts a large array of new features and improvements including an enhanced user interface; new professional editing tools; seamless integration with other Adobe applications including After Effects, Photoshop and GoLive; and new audio features including a sophisticated audio mixer and a SmartSound QuickTracks CD for creating custom length soundtracks inside Premiere. "The most important new feature in Adobe Premiere 6.0 is, bar none, the ability to take a finished product and re-purpose it for the Web quickly and easily," said Patrick Brennan, an independent video producer. "It supports delivery of content in QuickTime, RealMedia or virtually any other Web format, simplifying the creation and delivery of streaming video on the Web."
