IMPORTANT!!  To demonstrate the full power of the Mercury Playback Engine in Premiere Pro CS5, computers must be fitted with an Adobe approved Nvidia Quadro or GeForce graphics card. These are not cheap.  Art=Visual has the only classroom in Southeast with these cards installed on the student computers.

Note: Maximum class size at our Atlanta classroom is two students, though in most cases if you are the only one to sign up from your organization, you will be the only student. There is no extra charge for 1-on-1 training and no classes are cancelled. Three or more students must train on-site at their place of business.
