There's nothing like trying a new tool and seeing what it can do. You experiment, try something different, build new creative muscles. Shooting digital video with your DSLR camera is that next great creative opportunity. To do it right — to turn uncut video into compelling stories — you need a professional video editing tool, and Adobe® Premiere® Pro is on the leading edge of the DSLR wave.
Available for both Mac OS and Windows®, Adobe Premiere Pro handles DSLR video files natively, so you can start editing right after you shoot — no format conversion or rendering of video files is necessary, saving you hours of tedium. Cut scenes together, add and synchronize music and dialogue, adjust exposure, mix in still photos, add effects and titles, and much more. Just as Adobe Photoshop® is the undisputed leader in still image editing, Adobe Premiere Pro is the essential tool to break new ground in creative storytelling with your DSLR camera. Check out the resources below to see how.
Adobe tools and DSLR video: the perfect match
Do in seconds what can take hours in other software when you're editing video from the latest DSLR cameras. Adobe Premiere Pro directly reads and edits the original camera files without transcoding or rewrapping. And edits are nondestructive, so your original video files are never altered.
Get better footage more efficiently by dropping clips straight from your camera's memory card onto the Adobe Premiere Pro video timeline. While you're at the shoot, see how clips will cut together and use the built-in scopes in Adobe Premiere Pro to check video quality and exposure.
Master professional video editing faster. Adobe Premiere Pro shares a consistent user interface with Photoshop and other Adobe applications, shortening your learning curve.
Organize video clips and other components of your projects with the Media Browser in Adobe Premiere Pro or with Adobe Bridge. Add metadata such as keywords, labels, and star ratings that let you quickly locate, sort, and filter your clips or identify your sensitive information when you distribute or publish your work.
Edit faster with powerful tools that let you create high-quality visual and editorial effects with precise control and real-time feedback. Quickly fix audio and exposure problems or add color correction using controls like those in Photoshop — all right in the Adobe Premiere Pro timeline.
Easily output your finished projects in any major video or web format, optimized for almost any medium, using Adobe Media Encoder and Encore. Both are included with Adobe Premiere Pro.
Easily add professional polish to your videos using advanced features available in Photoshop. Layered Photoshop files and video files from Photoshop Extended are natively supported in Adobe Premiere Pro, so you can prepare and instantly import still images and stunning titles — with 3D text effects if you are using Adobe Repoussé in Photoshop Extended — for use in your videos. Or create DVD and Blu-ray menus for use with Adobe Encore® (included with Adobe Premiere Pro).
Accomplish in minutes what can take hours in other applications using the native 64-bit, GPU-accelerated Adobe Mercury Playback Engine in Adobe Premiere Pro. Handle complex video and special effects edits more quickly. Create multilayer, effects-rich sequences and seamlessly mix photos and videos on multiple tracks in the timeline, with no need to render as you work.
Get superior professional results by editing video in Photoshop Extended and then importing the clips directly into Adobe Premiere Pro. Correct lens distortion and aberrations, clone and paint, or perform advanced color grading, and then see your footage update immediately in Adobe Premiere Pro.
Easily sync your video tracks with separately recorded audio in Adobe Premiere Pro by using the Merge Clips feature to quickly match audio and video tracks.
