Adobe to Preview Creative Suite 6 at NAB

AdobeAdobe will offer the public its first deep look into the upcoming Creative Suite 6 package during the National Association of Broadcasters convention in Las Vegas. The CS6 suite isn’t shipping yet, although a public beta of Photoshop CS6 is available now.

Since NAB is a video-heavy event, Adobe will focus on the Production Premium Creative Suite apps geared towards video and audio editing such as Premiere Pro, After Effects, Encore, Audition, Story, and Media Encoder. Adobe will also show off its new SpeedGrade CS6 and Prelude CS6 apps.

SpeedGrade CS6 manages professional level color grading, and Prelude CS6 handles what Adobe said is the “process of ingest, logging and transcoding, essential tasks in a modern file-based workflow.”

Premiere Pro CS6, Adobe’s professional video editor, includes an updated user interface, new multi-cam editing and image stabilization features, an improved playback engine, a new audio mixer, and more. Adobe says After Effects CS6 marks the single largest upgrade for the visual effects application in a decade.

The Production Premium version of Creative Suite 6 includes Premiere Pro, After Effects, Encore, Audition, Story, Media Encoder, SpeedGrade CS6, Prelude CS6, and Photoshop. The official release date for CS6 hasn’t been announced yet.

The NAB conference and trade show runs from April 14 through April 20 at the Las Vegas Convention Center. Adobe will be previewing CS6 at booth SL2624 April 16 through April 19.
