With the release of Final Cut Pro 3, at least one veteran online editor and DV guru thinks that Adobe will cease upgrading Premiere for the Mac. (This is probably "No kidding, you think?" obvious to many DV specialists.) Version 6.0 is the last gasp. It's a shame in the sense that Premiere was there at the beginning--when Macs were the only computers that could do any digital video. A shame too because Premiere 6 is a great program (if I do say so, having devoted a chapter from my upcoming Digital Movies book to it). The big question now is whether Apple is setting its sights to come out with a major compositing program to compete with After Effects?
