Adobe Premiere Pro CS5.5 offers a good set of new features and improvements. The improved Mercury Engine takes an already outstanding feature to a new level, allowing for an even faster and better workflow on either animated or live-action projects, especially in tapeless environments. Also, using Adobe Audition for audio editing instead of SoundBooth is a good choice since it's a more mature and better featured product. If you're still using CS4, or even CS3, there's never been a better time to upgrade. Renderosity: http://www.renderosity.com/adobes-premiere-pro-cs5-5-in-review-cms-15651
