Re: Sell me on Premiere

Why I left apple.
Steve is still trying to control the user experience instead of provide what people want.

The Reality Distortion Field™ usually works.

We certainly do. Folks who left were in support, not engineering. Next release will be awesome.

Interesting to see I am not alone.

I didn't mean to imply that I worked for apple, if that's what you thought.
I was a Mac addict in 1996 for a while, spending $8500 on a powermac and $13000 on peripherals like SCSI RAID & Targa card.
The powermac open platform experiment stopped and my system quickly became redundant.
But that's life in the big city.
I went on to study web programming and had to buy a pc because all beginners lessons were in Q-basic so I bought a beat up old pentium 1 for $70.
I gradually got used to both systems but hardware became cheaper and better for PC's.
I am a champion of open source and love PHP, Apache, MySQL.
I love that facebook still uses them.

Apple's strategy has been to control the OS and hardware supposedly in the name of stability and hardware compatibility for the user.
Meanwhile, the PC(Windows OS), and Taiwanese competitive engineering have resulted in cheap, advanced gear for all, even apple users.
Different strokes.
However, it is ironic that Windows has become a far more open OS than apple.
A long way from apple's original philosophy that fostered graphic arts and video software pioneers.
Anyone seen "Pirates of Silicon valley"?
I have a very soft spot for Bob Wosniac.

These days I find apple's marketing strategies offensive.
FCP(some) users will know what I mean.

Having used Premiere on mac & PC over the last 15 years, and having had many issues with it, I have to say the current CS5+ is very stable(on a pc) and has great functionality and performance(on a pc).

Re: Sell me on Premiere

And to think that I once spent 11k on a Tektronics Phaser colour printer. I remember thinking at the time ... "I could have bought a second hand car for that". But I digress.
