Stereoscopic 3D Editing with Adobe Premiere Pro

Posted by Nikhil on 07/15 at 03:00 PM in




As many of you may know, Adobe's Premiere Pro CS 5.5 has recently thrust itself to the forefront of professional editing software, partly due to Apple's not so graceful restructuring of Final Cut. What many of you may not know, is Premiere's ability to handle a substantial 3D workflow. Just as in Final Cut Pro, Premiere works seamlessly with the Neo3D software plug-in to offer a variety of 3D looks and outputs such as side by side, top/bottom, and anaglyph. Having the Neo3D plug-in also allows you to control the convergence, vertical alignment, rotation disparities, and zoom differences between eyes for setting up a 3D scene. All of this can be accomplished in the Neo 3D interface and immediately reflected in Premiere by utilizing the powerful Cineform codec. As well, Premiere Pro has a 64 bit program architecture allowing it to better utilize computer memory for a faster workflow.

Another reason on using Premier for 3D editing is its seamless integration with the rest of Adobe's products, specifically After Effects. If you currently don't own a license for Neo3D software, After Effects has some similar tools used for editing 3D footage. Using the “3D Glasses Effect” and “Stereo 3D Controls Effect” you can still control your convergence and vertical alignment for setting up a 3D scene, along with the different 3D outputs that were mentioned earlier. Using these effects is as simple as dragging them onto the footage you wish to edit. Adobe has made it easy not only to edit in the 3D workspace, but also to make the transition from Final Cut Pro to Premiere.

With 3D production more prominent than ever, Adobe Premiere has stepped up to the plate to handle the increased demand.
