Rumor alert! Premiere users have been thrilled about the return to the Mac. But is there more expected from Adobe? With Flash taking the center stage, the focus from a Photoshop Pixel based world has lately shifted to the world of animation. It seems that Premiere Pro may have a second life and soon become much more relevant.
The Krama blog has posted an anonomyous reply to a user from the official User2User Adobe forum:
They are (Adobe) contemplating support for all mobile phone video formats, and other esoteric formats from whatever still camera you can imagine, but will stop DV, HDV and P2 support. The reason for this thinking is that Avid, Edius, FCP and Vegas are much better in that area and much more stable. Another one is that they intend to compete much more with WMM, since that will enable them to skip making manuals, another significant cost saving. Ultimately, they want to merge Elements and Pro and intend to call it Elephant. This will take some time however, after all the lay offs, so do not expect anything worthwhile before 4Q 2012, this will give you some time to pick a new phone for video editing.
Truth or fiction? Only time will tell, that and Ringling Brothers.
