The new version of Premiere Pro -- announced today -- is the first to be available on the Mac platform since the first version with the Pro suffix made the video editing software Windows-only in 2003.

Premiere Pro CS3 has few features that weren’t in version 2.0, but ships with OnLocation CS3 -- a rebadged version of Serious Magic’s DV Rack, which Adobe acquired with the rest of the company in 2006 -- and a new version of Encore (previously Encore DVD).

Premiere Pro and Soundbooth are Intel-only on the Mac. On Location and Ultra are Windows-only, but Mac users get On Location -- as it’s used separately from the rest of the suite, and works under Apple’s Boot Camp system for running Windows on an Intel Mac.

Premiere Pro CS3 gains an improved slow motion using a real-time time remapping system. Changes to the speed of video are made using handles on keyframes for more precise control, with the length of clips automatically adjusted on the timeline. Backwards playback is also possible using this system.

Working with large numbers of files has been made easier, says Adobe, through the ability to have more than one Project panel open – so you can see text information on core footage while seeing b-roll visually, for example. The search system within projects updates itself as you type.
