New Adobe Photoshop CS Adds Capabilities to Video Collection
Posted Oct 31, 2003

Adobe Systems Incorporated announced the availability of the Adobe Video Collection Professional edition, which now includes the newly launched Adobe Photoshop CS in addition to Adobe Premiere Pro, Adobe After Effects 6.0 Professional edition, Adobe Audition, and Adobe Encore DVD software. With new features for video professionals, including non-square pixel support, comprehensive 16-bit image support, and a new vector paint engine, Adobe Photoshop CS is now -- more than ever — a key component of the Adobe Video Collection.

The full-version upgrade successor to Photoshop 7.0, Adobe Photoshop CS removes the guesswork for film and video professionals designing sequences for DVD, video and film. Non-square pixel support allows video professionals to accurately create imagery for on screen display by enabling them to view the image as it would appear on the destination device. Users can create with confidence using preset video-standard sizes, including automatic action-safe and title-safe guides. Photoshop CS also provides 16-bit color support to preserve the rich color palette of film and is tightly integrated with Adobe Premiere Pro, Adobe Encore DVD and Adobe After Effects. A new vector paint engine simulates traditional art techniques, including charcoal, pastel, and wet or dry brush effects.

The Professional edition of the Adobe Video Collection for Windows XP with Photoshop CS is now shipping and can be purchased for an estimated street price of $1499. The standard edition, which does not contain Photoshop CS, can be purchased for an estimated street price of $999.
