Adobe Premier. . . .

in Mac Software edited January 2014
Okay I bought the Adobe digital video collection, for 500 from a education software supplier. It arrived and is not a scam so thank god. My question: It only specifies that it has adobe premier 6(i know that adobe premier 6.5 is out but maybe the sight is trying to save space by not adding the .5?), will this run in OS X?, this is all that the sight says about this product:



Adobe Digital Video Collection 7.0 Mac(Prem6/Photo7/After5.5/Illus10)CDROM

Standard Retail Price: $1,199.95

Your Academic Price: $489.95



I do not want to ever have to use classic. . . the price is sorta worth it just for photoshop, after effects and illustrator but I really need Premier.





On another note, I haven't heard much about premier, fcp and avid are way above me in price and what they offer, and I am finding iMovie quite limiting (well of course!) I assume that premier is a good step between for video editing.



Also, it says CDROM at the end, I assume this is all I am getting no manual or happy things. It would really suck to be getting a OS 9 version of premier.

    Looking at the Adobe press releases, Premiere 6.5 only seems to be included in the Digital Video Collection 8, and Premiere 6.0 only seems to run under OS9.

    When I purchased the Adobe Design Collection recently (I know, a different collection, but same idea) I was surprised at how many retailers were selling less-than-current versions at full price!

    Yeah, looks like you're stuck with an OS9 version unless you can return it unopened.

    Can I buy like a 100 dollor upgrade to premier 6.5?

    You can upgrade Premier for $150.... but you won't be upgrading the whole DV collection, just Premier.

    Education price of Final Cut Pro 3 is only $300. Why would you want to use Premiere when you can use FCP 3 with After Effects, Illustrator and Photoshop with more powerful capabilities than Premiere 6.5?

    In general Premiere is easier to use than Final Cut Pro.



    But not as powerful as FCP



    Also....FCP so far is the only package at this price range that can support HD and film resolution clips.

    I think the added price for FCP is for features I do not need yet, and features for broadcasting, which i could always wish I needed.

    I got the box and the best news came, it really did premiere 6.5 but the sight shortened it to 6, because their lame-ass's. I think that premier will be good for learning because it is easy to use. If fcp really is only 300$ for educational purpose's, then in a few years a might consider it. Thank you all for your help.



    P.S. one last question are After Effescts 5 and Illustrator 10 both OS X?

    illustrator 10, yes is OS X



    i think AfterEffects 5.5 is when it gets into X, not sure about 5.



    check Adobe.com

    According TFM AP 6.0 / 6.5 supports the use of 16:9 Widescreen (PAL or NTSC), but I'm not sure how or if that relates to the ability to import HDTV clips for example. One would think if it supports the general format, it should support the video. But I'm new to this arena so pardon me if I'm missing something.



    In general 6.5 seems a rather small update. Real-time previewing, better QT and AE integration, and the Title Composer thing...otherwise I dunno. Seems pretty skimpy. Oh, and that OS X native thing.

    Not all 16:9 is Hi Def. For example, progressive scan DVD player output is 16:9 but standard def.
