    Includes Powerful New Versions of After Effects, Adobe Premiere Pro,
    Adobe Audition, Adobe Encore DVD

    Introduces Adobe Dynamic Link and Delivers Advanced Flash Video
    Support

    SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan. 17, 2006--Adobe Systems
    Incorporated (Nasdaq:ADBE - News) today unveiled Adobe® Production
    Studio, an extension of the Adobe Creative Suite family of products.
    The most complete post-production software solution available today,
    Adobe Production Studio combines full new versions of Adobe's world
    class video and graphics applications -- Adobe After Effects® 7.0,
    Adobe Premiere Pro® 2.0, Adobe Audition® 2.0, Adobe Encore® 2.0 (also
    announced today, see separate releases) and the latest versions of
    Adobe Photoshop® CS2 and Adobe Illustrator® CS2 -- with time-saving
    innovations such as Adobe Dynamic Link that deliver a highly efficient
    workflow experience. Adobe Production Studio also integrates Flash
    Video (FLV) export capabilities to provide video professionals with a
    new, fluid method of delivering content to the Web using this
    ubiquitous Web video standard.

    "From individual creatives and videographers to high-end production
    studios, our customers create award winning work that engages
    audiences worldwide," said Shantanu Narayen, president and COO of
    Adobe. "With unparalleled integration between milestone releases of
    After Effects, Adobe Premiere Pro, and Photoshop CS2, the workflow
    productivity that Dynamic Link delivers, and new Flash Video support,
    Adobe Production Studio saves users time so they can focus on their
    creative challenges."

    Intelligent Workflow Removes Production Bottlenecks

    Adobe Production Studio delivers ground-breaking workflow improvements
    that allow users to maximize their productivity. Adobe Dynamic Link
    allows users to move After Effects compositions directly into Adobe
    Premiere Pro and Encore DVD, without having to render them first.
    Changes are automatically updated, so users can instantly see
    refinements in context. Other productivity-enhancing workflow features
    include: a new unified interface; the ability to capture footage using
    Adobe Premiere Pro from within After Effects; and Adobe Bridge, a
    full-featured file browser that can be launched independently or
    accessed from any Production Studio component. With Adobe Production
    Studio, users can maintain creative momentum within an integrated
    post-production environment.

    "Adobe is clearly committed to the video and post-production
    professional," said Lance Bachelder, Supervising Editor for O
    Entertainment! "Adobe Production Studio will excite a lot of people
    and give those looking for a totally integrated workflow for editing,
    motion graphics, effects, sound design, and DVD authoring a true 'pro'
    solution."

    Design with Power and Efficiency

    Adobe Production Studio combines Adobe's world-class video and audio
    applications with the indispensable graphics capabilities of Photoshop
    CS2 and Illustrator CS2. Benefiting from the global reach of the Adobe
    Portable Document Format (PDF), client reviews can be expedited with
    Adobe Clip Notes, a powerful new way to get feedback on Adobe Premiere
    Pro projects. High-fidelity support for OpenGL 2.0 in After Effects
    speeds production time, while new animation presets make it easy to
    quickly create great-looking animations. The new low-latency mixing
    engine in Adobe Audition delivers instant results, and Adobe Encore
    DVD includes the ability to easily create slideshows. Plus, more than
    eight gigabytes of royalty-free design assets give users a head start
    on any creative project.

    Broad Support for Industry-Standard Technologies

    Extensive support for industry standards, formats, and hardware
    provides flexibility to easily integrate Adobe Production Studio into
    existing workflows. Both After Effects and Adobe Premiere Pro
    introduce the ability to export Flash Video files, so users can
    integrate Adobe Production Studio into Flash workflows for the
    delivery of video content for the Web. High definition formats are
    supported at popular resolution and frame rates and content from HDV
    cameras can be edited natively. 32-bit float High Dynamic Range (HDR)
    color in After Effects Professional and 10-bit YUV color in Adobe
    Premiere Pro 2.0 ensure pristine color quality. Support for 32-bit
    audio throughout the Adobe Production Studio delivers high-fidelity
    audio output.

    Pricing and Availability

    Adobe Creative Suite Production Studio for Microsoft® Windows® XP is
    available as both a standalone product and as part of the Adobe Video
    Bundle now through Adobe Authorized Resellers. A Standard edition of

    Compettiton is a great thing. All of the companies in our industry
    take from eachother. I'm really surprised noone has added the
    background rendering like Liquid has.

    The Adobe Dynamic Linking is very cool, and the bridge is a media
    management tool that expands beyond your computer out into the web.
    VERY COOL!

    We'll be posting more in depth info on Premeire Pro 2 and the entire
    Adobe Production Bundle later this winter.

    In the meantime I'm adding new Adobe articles to the Videoguys Blog as
    I find them http://www.videoguys.com/blog/
