Adobe Systems unveiled native support for the Panasonic P2 camera format in Adobe Premiere Pro CS3 software during IBC2007.
Adobe Premiere Pro now provides a file-based workflow without transcoding or rewrapping to maintain the metadata in P2 content and complete a software-only HD workflow from capture to output.
Because Adobe Premiere Pro does not transcode or rewrap the P2 format into another file format, editors shorten the video acquisition process and have the flexibility to edit footage in the native MXF format. This not only helps retain valuable metadata information but also enables users to export back to P2 cards and permit playback via satellite uplink using Panasonic P2 equipment.
