Adobe announced its Production Studio software is on its way for the Mac, returning the respectable Adobe Premiere Pro nonlinear editing software back to the Mac whence it came. Also newly available on the Mac will be DVD authoring software Adobe Encore and the new Adobe Soundbooth, which makes audio production more palatable for video jockeys.
The biggest story here is editing software Premiere Pro's return to the Mac, where it was practically pushed out of the market by Apple's wildly popular Final Cut Pro three years ago. Premiere Pro has since been beefed up considerably, and enjoys the huge advantage of smooth interoperability with other Adobe applications such as Photoshop, Illustrator and the powerful compositing tool, After Effects. Expect to see the new Windows and Mac versions by mid-year.
Take a look at these screen shots:
Premiere Pro is the best editing software on the planet, and this sets up a battle royale between Apple and Adobe, the two video content creation industry titans. This will be fun to watch.
