4 days left to buy Adobe Premiere Pro half price.


Adobe has been trying hard to get as many editors and photographers to play with Premiere Pro, their video editing software. To sweeten the deal, they have been offering a 50% off Adobe Creative Suite 5.5 Production Premium or Adobe Premiere Pro CS5.5 software. There’s even have a page dedicated to promote switching from Apple Final Cut Pro or Avid Media Composer!

How does that 50% translates into real numbers? A full license of CS 5.5 Production Premium Suite (which includes Photoshop, After Effects, and Flash, among other applications), can be bought for $849.50.  If you are only interested in Premiere Pro CS 5.5 , it is yours for only $399. 

What’s the catch? None really.
– You have to own Apple Final Cut Pro or Avid Media Composer.
– You need to use the offer code SWITCH.
– The software has to be purchased through the Adobe Store.
This seems pretty reasonable to me. But hurry up! The offer ends October 31, 2011.

If you want to know more before making the jump, check some free tutorials on Adobe TV, or get one of their excellent Classroom in a Book series.

50% discount on Adobe Premiere Pro offer

Related, but unrelated, there is a 30% discount off a full or upgrade version of Adobe Lightroom when purchased with Adobe Photoshop CS5, Photoshop CS5 Extended, or any Creative Suite 5.5 edition. Not as good as the 50% off, but it is something. The Lightroom offer endsDecember 31, 2011.
