    Premiere Pro CS5 & CS6 features


      Hello all,


      Adobe did great job improving Premiere Pro. I'm using Premiere Pro since 1.5 version, so I'm not a newbie. I want to ask few questions


      1. I installed Master Collection CS6 Trial. As editor I really liked the Slider position. Why Adobe in CS6 put it at the bottom? Maybe in later versions, Adobe could make it customizable? Users could choose where to put it. Think about it.

      2. New sequence setting. Only few presets? Maybe with the next update, You will add more presets? Ofc I could them by myself, but c'mon...

      CS6 presets



      3. Exporting. Why Adobe removed MPEG2 from export? Many still uses MPEG2.

      CS5 Mpeg2



      CS6 no Mpeg2



      For the conlusion, CS5 was the best version I worked with, it needed only stabilizer. But CS6 is really good version too, it just needs some minor fixes.


      I'll be looking for answers or ideas

          AFAIK, the trial comes without MPEG2-codec due to licensing restrictions, meaning Adobe would have to pay fees for every trial someone is testing. I think they feel disinclined to do so and thats why you dont see any MPEG2 options for Sequence presets or export. The fully licensed PPro's sequence preset panel looks like that:

          And in AME:

            The trial versions did once have a limitation on all things MPEG, but as of CS5, IIRC, the ONLY limitation of the trial is 30-days - all other aspecsts/elements should be installed.


            If the OP is not seeing all Presets, then something is wrong with the installation. They should be.


            Good luck,

              1.  This is just the way it is now.  Better get used to it.

              2.  This is not normal.  The missing presets do come included, even with the trial.  Something got messed up with your installation.

              3.  Same as 2.

                It's a licensing issue.


                Try this:

                1. Deactivate Premiere Pro (Help > Deactivate).
                2. Reboot the system, and then launch Premiere Pro again. It likely won't launch as you deactivated it.
                3. Reboot machine once more.
                4. Open Premiere Pro.
                5. Reactivate Premiere Pro from the Help menu, and your serial number.
                6. Close Premiere Pro and then open it back up. 
                7. Check to see if the missing MPEG2 codec is there now.
