Premiere 6.0, Adobe Systems' digital video editing software, will now support real-time digital video editing on the Macintosh, Adobe said Monday. Macintosh owners, however, must still wait to use the time-saving software until Apple QuickTime 5 and real-time hardware cards are released this spring from companies such as Matrox Digital Video Solutions and ProMax Systems.
"Rather than having to wait for the computer to make the change, you're doing it in real-time and you're seeing your changes as you go," said Adobe spokeswoman Cara Broglia. "This will be the first time that people on the Mac will be able to do this in real time." Adobe Premiere has offered real-time video editing on PCs for several years.
