    It’s so refreshing to have you come on here and lay out the “roadmap” for where Adobe is planning to take the product. And the special offer is a great idea. Everything Adobe are doing right now with Premiere feels like it’s right on the money.

    Or are you planning on discontinuing it next week without letting anybody know in advance?

    Actually it’s now called Adobe Media Encoder (AME) and it not only does Flash but H.264 and can transcode to ProRes or whatever codecs are on your system (DNxHD etc.). And it’s 64-bit & cross-platform (unlike Compesssor 4). Now if Adobe would just take a leaf out of Avid’s book and provide both Mac & PC versions to FCP switchers & improve a few things in a point update (monitoring, fcp xml translation, color tools etc.) I’d be sold. I was leaning towards renting to begin with but the $400 offer is pretty compelling & perhaps I’ll update to Prod. Premium when V6 drops. Would love to see a Premiere Pro + Photoshop Ext. bundle for say $600. And if Avid opens up their hardware support for MC 5.5 to all vendors I may just get both. Cheers!

    I would kill for a Premiere AE deal bundle. that would be picking the two cherries out of the pie for me.

    My sprite went down into my lungs just now when I read that. That was classic :). I was discussing upgrades with Adobe earlier. Price switch is good marketing. I will definitely take advantage of it.

    Or rather Are you going to rent out Vegas for the largest video editing expo ever to tell us CS6 is going to shake the foundation of the world. Then release Adobe Acrobat that can line up PDF images with music added in?

    After reading the first part of this thread, I was borderline appalled at the brashness of coming to an Apple FCPx forum and just busting out with that.

    But after reading through the thread, and also noticing another instance in a DIFFERENT thread where a separate Adobe employee answered another question, I have to say I am thoroughly impressed. It’s a bold move guys and I think it will work.

    I’ve toyed with Premiere and think it’s a great program. This offer is certainly a nice touch and it shows you are listening.

    I like it. The video is wicked.

    Aside from the top ten reasons given by Adobe to switch to Premiere, I can think of 50 other reasons to pick Premiere over Final Cut X.

    it’s crazy – a week ago I would never have thought of premiere, I had no idea what shape it was in as an application, and this with me starting in design with AE, photoshop, illustrator, I still use them all the time. It just never entered my head.
